Default TV and Best Buy-what should I do

I bought a TV from best by in early Jan.24inch regular TV for 100 bucks. (I see why they were so cheap now) I stopped working wed of this week. I took it back on the last day of the return policy. Because I bought it online I had to return the old on and buy a new one, it wasn't an exchange. SO the new TV has a whole new 30 day return policy. When I bought the new one I also got the story warrenty good for 4 years.

Well today is Saturday and the new TV just died. So should I

-exchange for a new one, and if that ones goes I have the warranty so I'll always be covered.

-return and get my money back and just call it a wash

When I worked at a similar store we would just get a certain brand of something that was a piece of crap and most of them would get returned. Chances are if you got two duds, the third will also be a dud...

I'd go for a different model or just get my $$ back if i were you.

I would definately get a refund. Try for a different brand. Or buy a tv elsewhere. I would also ask the rate of returns on the tv.

If you had the same brand & model both times I would get my money back, and try a new model.
However, if they were different models-I would check things around the home. Sometimes a glitch somewhere in the house can cause tv's and other appliances to burn out. (This has happened with my in laws-they went through two tvs, a stove, and a computer before they eralized the issue.)

Thanks for the advice. I think it might have been a bad batch at that store. I got a refund and ended up buying a TV from Sears.
