    Following tonyvb's thread about drop-outs during The Mockingjay (Part 1) reminded me of a problem I recently had with 300: Rise of an Empire. The menu buttons "Play," "Setup," "Features," etc. were visible through the whole movie. Some, but not all, of the menu graphics were also...

  8. Samsung PN50A550 screeching, cycling on/off

    I bought a Samsung PN50A550 from Circuit City last year, and it started having a serious problem after only 7-8 months -- just in time for CC to go out of business.

I...
