Samsung And LG Swap Panels

To make a long story short, Samsung will buy 37-inch panels from LG, while LG will buy 52-inch panels from Samsung.

Unless you've got an up to date scorecard, it's hard to keep track of who really made the panel for the television you're looking at in the store. On the other hand, with quality going up even as prices erode down, does it really matter? I'm old enough to remember when AV snobs sneered at any CE product that was not "made in Japan." Those guys are a dying breed. Most consumers are unconcerned about whether or not their panel came from Japan, Korea, or Taiwain.
