My year is up and I have to choose whether to extend the warranty for an additional 3 years for $530. What is anyone's thoughts on purchasing an extended warranty for this model? I read some problems on Amazon's reviews on this model. Just want a consensus on this.

Thanks much!

If it's through Sony, and the terms and conditions are the same, the price sounds more than reasonable. I would if I liked the set and intended to keep it another three years.

It's through Magnolia Audio and Video, but it would cover most everything.
Thanks

$530 is steep.

I work at Colder's in Milwaukee and sell microdisplays, and sell a three year on a brand new DILA for $250, and a five year for $380. The former includes 1 bulb, and the latter includes 2 bulbs. In-house, no exclusions. If the $530 is directly to Sony, I understand why. You will find a better price through a reputable third party place.

Do you know where else I could call? I called Sony and they only offer it within 11 months of purchase.
Thanks

I went and extended it through Magnolia.
I read about a consistent problem with this set at AVS and I didn't want to take a chance.
Thanks for the reponses.
