    Sweet, now bestbuy.com is letting me order the VSXD811S (as in my previous post, they would not let you order this yesterday). Should I pay the extra $35 to get the 4 year service plan? Is it worth it? Thanks for any help.

    Adam,

    I am waiting for one of these to, they gave me a rain-check.

    Did they say when they would have yours in?

    The VSX-811S only come with a 1 year warranty, so $35 for a 4 year service plan isn't bad.

    i would say no at first, but i'd be lying if i said the best buy psp's hadnt saved my ass a couple times. but i am a former employee, and i got them hugely discounted, i'm talking like $6 for a $59.99 service plan. although i had nothing to do with selling them, i was in mobile install, so i wasnt one of their sales cronies. i would say, if you have the extra cash, its not bad to have the peace of mind. if not, not a big deal, pioneers are nice units.

    Personally, I don't find these service plans to be anything other than profit for the retailer, but I might reconsider were it some really expensive item.
    How are you paying for your purchase? Some credit cards (well, at least in Canada) will extend warranty coverage by up to a year. It's not four years for $35, but it's an extra year for free. [​IMG]
