Samsung to pay millions in class-action settlement over faulty TVs

A settlement has been reached in a class-action lawsuit filed against Samsung over a number of its television sets. The company is offering free repairs and up to $300 to customers who owned one of several TV models that were manufactured prior to December 31, 2008. The lawsuit alleged that a power defect caused TVs to experience a delay in turning on, making a clicking sound, cycling on and off, or simply not turning on at all. While Samsung denied the allegations, it agreed to settle to “avoid the costs and uncertainty of continued litigation.” Hit the break for a list of the models covered in the settlement.
