You picked a winner. one of the best set on the market today, As far as warrenty goes I have a 3 year old Sony 65" t.v. The first year I had problems twice and Sony warrenty service was great, I feel that if your going to have problems with this set they will appear during the first year of operation So I never bother with extended warrenty. Now that you own a great set go spend all your money on a hi-def Satallite system. and 5.1. sound sysyem andd dont forget the snack bar good luck to you stewart
I'm sure this has been discussed elsewhere, but when I did a search, there were 500 pages of hits. You're welcome to post a link to the relevent discussion if you'd like.
I just purchased the Sony 60" SXRD television (KDSR60XBR1), which has a one year parts and labor warranty. I'm not sure, but I may have another year of warranty via the credit card I used to purchase the TV (not sure...need to check on this).
When buying, the salesperson, of course, asked if I were interested in an extended warranty and if so, the number of years. I declined, as he said I could purchase the warranty later.
So here are a few questions (you don't need to answer every one of them to respond):
1. Is it worth the cost? If so, should I get 2 yr? 3 yr? 5 yr? etc.
2. When shopping for this TV, one store told me the warranty was a great idea as it would cover the bulb replacement and that it would certain need to be replaced within 5 years. The store I purchased it from said bulb replacement is not covered under warranty. Which is right (or are they both right depending on who provides the warranty)?
3. If I do get an extended warranty, which organization should it come from (I suspect some warranties are better than others)?
4. Where should I purchase the warranty from? (I suspect different places will offer identical warranties at different prices).
I noticed that the price of the warranty depended on the cost of the TV. If this is important, assume that I purchased the TV for $3500.
