I trust the Samsung brand when it comes to electronics. They are really good and they know what their market wants and needs. The LCD monitor I am using for my desktop is Samsung, as well as some gadgets I have at home. They last longer than the other brands I’ve tried (for the same item, that is).
My philosophy now is that it doesn’t matter if I have to spend a bit more if it means a longer life for the item I am buying. I especially apply this to gadgets and some other home items.
