I'm gonna keep it short...relatively...
I'm pushing 8 hours on the phone time with Samsung, Netflix, and ISP. They all point the finger at someone else. My UN55ES6100 was working flawlessly until around Christmas, at which time my Netflix app couldn't connect. All other internet based apps work fine. Samsung Blu Ray player= exact same issue. Hardwired directly to the modem= same issue. Netflix works fine via wireless network on PS3, iphone, and 2 mac laptops. After a few rounds of everyone blaming the other 2, Samsung says they'll send out a tech for a repair. This TV is 4 weeks old.... no way. I return the TV and the Blu Ray. Exchange the TV for another UN55ES6100, just in case, and exchange the Samsung Blu Ray for a Panasonic. Guess what? The TV responds the exact same AND the Panasonic can't connect to Netflix, either. Internet and modem are working flawlessly, per ISP. Netflix now says 'Eh, it must be the Samsung, and now the Panasonic, too. Definitely not us.' ISP says it's definitely Netflix or Samsung AND Panasonic.... and around and around we go.
Oh, I also bought a new router, just in case, and no change. I really just want someone to own up to the problem. I'm thinking about spending the extra cash on a SONY, since my PS3 isn't having any problems, but the fact the Panasonic is having problems is making me wonder. This is probably the most confused I've ever been in my life.
