    the damn photos are the same!
    what can i do, i dont want an AKAI system with Samsung Logo.
    I can buy a Mitsubishi Set for 1550 bucks, but Samsung has three years on warranty, and Mitsubishi only has one year, what can i do, took the samsung or change for the mitsubishi? the mit set is the WT-42311

    Are you sure the Akai unit is not just OEM from Samsung?

    Sony did that in the 50's and 60's. They produced televisions for Sears with the Sears logo, then persuaded RCA to do the same thing.

    In general, I prefer the Mitsubishi brand (unless you are talking about the Samsung DLP units). But the Mitsubishi units dont accept 720p. If that limitation is ok with you, I'd go for the Mitsubishi.

    i dont know if its an OEM but, maybe it is.

    For warranty what do you think?

    Samsung or Mitsubishi?

    2 more years is great, but Mitsubishi has a big name what can i do?
