WARNING to small set owners: chg'd policy for capacitor prob

When I had the "television won't turn on" problem, I was told by Samsung that my set was eligible for the one time free repair if the problem was faulty capacitors. I was told I had to send the set in, pay for postage/insurance and pay 150$. If the problem was the capacitors, I would get the 150 back and they would pay for shipping the set back. The reason given was because my set was small (32") and when I said I'd never heard of anyone else having to do this, they said the policy changed Sept. 20, 2010. (They kept putting me on hold every time I had a question, I really felt like they were making it up as they went.) I believe it's a way for them to live up to the letter but not the intent of the settlement between NJ and Samsung. They know many people, me included, will never send their sets in. Once your set leaves your hands, would YOU trust Samsung to tell you the truth if they said it wasn't the capacitors? Why was I not given the option to take it to a local repairman that they use? Put me on the ever-growing list.....never ever another Samsung product.
