Since 2021, the screen manufacturing factories will be upgraded and Samsung will start producing new improved screens.
- Panasonic, Sony – these companies produce good TVs by purchasing components from other manufacturers. Cheap models of televisions are produced under the scheme of outsourcing. These televisions are produced by other companies under the brands Sony and Panasonic. More expensive models are produced in the factories of these brands.

Year of TV development and production
It is no secret that many stores on Black Friday are trying to sell models of TVs of previous years. It happens that with great discounts sell TVs made a few years ago. It is not a big deal if you are ready to buy a TV that was in stock a couple of years ago. But the only remark is that such TVs should be stored in proper conditions, LED screens are not very moisture resistant, especially cheap ones.

Buy additional warranty on the TV
We recommend you to buy an extended warranty at once, it will allow you to repair the TV in case of breakage. And if you consider the TV sets of Chinese manufacturers and TV sets made by ODM (original design manufacturer) manufacturers. Practice shows that a TV produced 2-3 years ago is almost impossible to repair (no necessary spare parts), in this case, those who have an extended warranty, as a rule, get a new TV instead of the broken one. Purchasing an extended warranty is available on Amazon, for example, even for TVs purchased in other stores. After purchasing the protection plan, you should register your TV with the service, indicating the model of the TV, the date of purchase and the serial number.
