    I never believed in extended warranty at the rate technology is getting outdated and thr price falling down.

    Yeah, at that time, i was on the fence, can't make up my mind, then, to think of that $700 warranty, as compared with $7k that I was going to pay for that TV, it is just 10%. It will give me some peace of mind. Why not rite?
    Now, I am a believer of extended warranty. Of cos, also depends alot of the price of the product.

    I have a 42 JVC plasma since March. The installer guy says JVC pays him $200 for every installation including repair jobs, and of course this $200 will be passed on to owner on top of whatever repair labour and parts charges (which will also not be cheap) after the warranty period. IMO, I think the plasma screen (be it Japan or Korean) will easily last for many years, but I'm not too sure whether the loads of miniature electrical/electronic components inside the TV can tahan the extreme heat and last just as long! Imagine paying say $400 juz to replace a broken 50 cents capacitor! So, extended warranty definitely should be considered...
