Not sure how you seem to think its fair that since your 42 inch 3 year old 720p television went out, you are justified to receive a brand new 55 inch LED....
The same concept baffles me as well. It's like your auto insurance. Will they credit you for the original purchase price of your car when you first bought it/had it insured should they decide to cash you out? If they did, then I should have had enough to upgrade from my totalled Accord to a Porsche.

I understand why I didn't get a Porsche for my Accord (had to settle for a Lexus), but that still doesn't explain why a consumer would be eligible for quite literally an upgrade to their TV if Best Buy decides not to repair it. Most of the time, Best Buy junks out a customer's product and approves them for a new product because of the cost of the repair or part(s), not because it was a "lemon."

Conversation was between me and CrimsonRain.
Lemon laws are not exclusive to automobiles. The spirit of "lemon laws" is to protect consumers who purchase products with warranties, no matter what the product is. (The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act)

Conversations on public forums are between everyone. PMs are between two users.
Try making use of the MMWA. When you successfully get a company to honor it, you will be able to teleport yourself to my desk to tell me.

Nokia said: "this conversation is irrelevant."
I know that messages on this forum are for all to view and participate. Nokia used the word "conversation" and indeed me and CrimsonRain were engaged in a "conversation" on this thread. It might have been irrelevant to Nokia, but it was very relevant to me and CrimsonRain. All members are always welcome to participate. However, it does not benefit anyone on this forum when members go out of their way to denigrate legitimate posts.
I wish you well and hope that Best Buy can resolve your issue to your satisfaction. I think it is unfortunate that this thread went hostile. Nonetheless, Good Luck!

You mentioned a LL pertaining to TVs, which does not effectively exist. You're free to talk about it, but it's theoretical talk since you can't compare LLs for cars and TVs. It's like comparing the thrust characteristics of a Learjet and a toaster.
