I love the display quality of LG, great panels, but man i've had bad luck with them lasting, my last 2 both ended the same way - inadequate heat sink on the display processor and heat / cool cycles caused the SMD chip to break connection with the board.

I re-flowed my 47 inch once and it lasted for a few months and then did it again. The 32 I tossed after the first failure.

I haven't bought one since 2012 so my experience is not with recent hardware, hopefully they've improved since then.
