Going on 2 years, still get the 1 second black screen around 2 minutes after power on. Everything else has been rock steady.

It is probably not that the 'problem' is more popular among the 60" size, it is more likely there are a greater number of displays sold in that size.

That's a bummer! Probably the risk we all took by grabbing on to the last and best plasmas. A scarce number of replacement panels.
Assuming that is the issue. If it really gets down to no other...

I am not surprised. I always thought OLED technology would be the only likely replacement for the best 2014 plasma. I am sure 4K will come in time. But you will have the same uneducated folks...

Good point on the CC extension. I ran into Costco after getting mine and picked up 3 yr warranty through SquareTrade.
