Maybe this is one reason why plasma is so much cheaper than LCD for those in the same size of screen. Plasma has better picture quality than LCD though don't they? I heard that plasma's break easily.
Any ?? Of course! NO brand is 100% defect free. If they were then warranties would be completely unnecessary. You're trying to ask which brands are most reliable. Many opinions on that so why not check with the experts? Here are some links to get you started...

Consumer Reports Electronics Blog: LCD TV reliability?Why Vizio isn't in our repair history
n fact, our most recent reliability survey data (available to subscribers) shows that the rate of repairs for Vizio TVs has beens quite low, and comparable to its competition. The survey, which covered more than 168,000 LCD and plasma TVs bought between 2005 and 2008, showed that the repair rate for Vizio LCD TVs was 3 percent, the average for all 16 LCD brands covered in the survey. Perhaps just as important, Vizio was one of a small number of companies that stood out for ease of repair, meaning there were few, if any, issues getting the set repaired in a timely fashion.
The bottom line? We see no evidence of a reliability problem for Vizio, nor that the brand’s customer service is lacking when sets do break. Rather, even reliable TV brands have some sets that fail, and their owners are understandably disappointed, especially if they fail after the warranty has expired.
The cheaper priced ones like Vizio are also cheaper in the sense of quality and go out sooner.
Someone buys a Vizio, it dies with 5 years and they tell all their friends -
ALL these gosh darn new TVs die within 5 years !
