Is Your Samsung LCD Made By Samsung? Not Always.

Samsung is certainly one of the best LCD panel manufacturers out there.
Thing is, the display panel under that spiffy Sammy logo might not be a Samsung manufactured panel at all. According to a Samsung official speaking on condition of anonymity to the Korea Times, Samsung has been using low-cost, foreign made LCD panels in "several Samsung monitor models, including the 20-inch XL20." Apparently, "some laptop PCs" also don't incorporate Samsung panels. Of course, we understand the competitive pressures which Samsung operates within. We're also aware that there are many low cost, quality alternatives to Samsung's own panels. However, when Korean (and presumably, the world's) consumers pay a premium for an LCD from the world's largest LCD panel maker, well, let's just say we can understand the outrage at not being told of their LCD's true origins.

the world operates. Nike's are made in India, Ford Motors are built in Mexico, Even Microsoft builds their 360's in Mexico. So whats the big deal if Samsung does the same?

Well the difference here is the lcd screen is not made by sammy. what don't you guys understand about that. If I payed for a samsung moniter i want a samsung lcd not a viewsonic one.

If you buy Nike, FORD or microsoft your paying for an American product.
But none of these products are made in America. All they do is put their names on it. Same thing that Samsung seems to be doing with their LCD.

Foul? yes but thats the way things have been heading for the last 20 years.
