I am on the verge of purchasing the Panasonic RP-91 and am trying to decide whether or not to purchase an extended warranty. I will likely buy it from an on-line retailer such as ecost or etronics. They seem to range in cost from $60 to $180 for a 4 year warranty. Any thoughts on whether or not its worthwile? I wouldn't have considered it before, but I just go burned on a Pansonic DVD-A120 which died 13 months after purchase.... I would hate to pay $500 for the RP-91 and have it die on me after a year..... Thanks.
