This pertains to Canadian retailers. I am looking at getting a Panasonic F87K (black) 5 disc DVD carousel from either of Future Shop or 2001AudioVideo here in Canada. I am also thinking about buying one of their extended warranty or extended service plans. Both have roughly the same time frame. $29 gives you an additional year and $39 gives you 3 extra years, with Future Shop also offering a $34.95 option for 2 extra years. Incidentally, Future Shop doesn't even have the Black models in and I've been watching for a month. I don't know why they only have Silver. I am pretty sure 2001AudioVideo has a black model in stock as I asked them, but until I see it with my own eyes, who knows. Has anyone used these and do you have any advice? For $40 it seems like a reasonable bet to prevent costly repairs. Experience? Feedback?
