That is pretty terrible news. I am going to have to cancel my order - not worth it to not have it under warranty.

How prone are these TVs to problems? I was offered a 2 year warranty for $450 and a 5 year for $700 from BB. Should I get it or are there better warranty options elsewhere?

Do you have a Costco membership? If so, I think it's even a bit cheaper through them.

Although with BB you can tell just them to come pick it up and replace it, I don't think Square Trade does that.

You can buy the warranty through Costco even if you don't have a membership. It's just a few more dollars.

It looks like I can get a squaredeal warranty 4 years for 300 bucks, much better then BB's 5 for 700.

Don't jump on that too quickly. Costco members can get an equivalent Squaretrade warranty from Costco for $89.99 for an extra 3 years. Reportedly non-members can get it for about an extra $5.

Right, I wasn't very clear about that.

BB/MagHiFi warranties seem excessively expensive to me, like beyond any reasonable amount. I realize they make a bundle of money on them, but still...

What is everyone's opinion on this? Is it a bad call to not get the warranty? Paul's offered me one for 200 for the 60 for 5 years through Bankers Warranty Group. Should I get it through them or just cancel the order?

Just read the fine print on warranties. Best buy is expensive but covers a lot too. Dead pixels and burn in. Some warranty companies deduct repairs from amount payed for the tv so after a repair and tv craps out you don't get full price payed for the tv.

Jesus, $700 could go nicely towards a new OLED in a few years if your tv breaks.
