    I am ready to buy a Hitachi 65 big screen and wondering if I purchase the extended warranty which also has the guys come out and clean and check the system every year is this something you want to have done if you have your set professioanlly calibrated? Will them cleaning and checking things throw off the callibration in any way?

    Do you think the extended waranty is worth getting anyway?
    Thanks for the help.

    Depends on how carefully they clean the set's innards. If they jostle things around a bit, there goes your professional multipoint convergence.

    I'm not a fan of extended warranties; they serve primarily as a revenue source for big chain retailers.

    By all means have that Hitachi professionally calibrated if your budget allows for it. There's no other way to get a reasonably accurate picture.
