    I am taking the plunge and purchasing the Toshiba 56H80. My current dilemma is whether or not to purchase one of the additional warranty the store offers: 2 years- $269 3 years- $349 5 years $599. Should I take out an extended warranty? This can add to a significant cost to my purchase. Please advise. Thanks in advance for all those who reply.

    Greetings
    considering that even one minor problem in say ... year 4 .. will run you $400 in repairs ... it may be worth considering.
    It's just insurance. They bet you won't need it, you bet that you might.
    Or you takes your chances.

    Toshiba also offers an extended warranty plan that I believe is cheaper than what you listed. If you want such a plan, I would check out what Toshiba has to offer.

    When I bought my TW56X81 you could buy the extended warranty directly from Toshiba anytime up to a year after purchase. The store might not have mentioned this (assuming Toshiba still offers this) in order to get you to purchase the store warranty.

    i bought the store's "performance package" when i bought my 40h80 only because i'd rather deal with a store that is right down the street (i can go and get in their face) rather than deal with toshiba on the phone (who are well known for poor customer service).
