here is my story i brought a 32" lcd hdtv Samsung but i noticed some tearing while plaing dvd's and the 360. i researched the TV (samsung LN-T3242H) and found out that these models have issues of tearing and audio dropping with models manufactured before Sept 07. Mine was manufactured july 07. I called to see if i can make a exchange and they agreed but in order to get a newer model, the manufacture date must be on the box. i can't figure it out because nothing on the box shows the manufacture date. Any help figuring this out would be huge thank you.
