Samsung TVs made in China -- "A" and "C" vs "S" Models

by mmacdo / January 14, 2009 5:42 AM PST

Does anyone have information on the quality differences of Samsung TVs with an A or a C on the serial number label? (To be clear, not in the model number--the distinction is one of manufacturing plant, not product model.) The Amazon forum has a posting that claims these products are inferior to TVs with an S on othe serial number label... The theory is that the A and C are made in Chinese factories and are lower quality components. I hope this is not a repeat post... I searched for this topic and did not fine it anywhere else. (I just got a LN46A650 and like it (S on the back label... yay!), but have to admit I am a bit nervous after reading the first 10 pages of this forum... the only problem missing from what I can see is spontaneous combustion.)
