    A close friend of mine is preparing to buy a Pioneer PDP-5030HD plasma TV. The local place he is buying it from is charging him $6800 out the door (before installation).

    I did a quick search on Yahoo! Shopping and found that they are going for around $6000 delivered from many online retailers.

    I also noticed that TVAuthority.com (HTF sponsor) sells this TV although they require that you call to get the price.

    Anyway, my question is whether or not the online deals are really a good deal... Specifically, how can we know if Pioneer will honor their warranty if we buy from an online retailer? Pioneer's website only lists Crutchfield as an "authorized" online seller!

    Are all the other online retailers who claim that you get the warranty lying?

    Anyone's advice on this would be appreciated. Thanks!
