Got the tracking number, but it is 5 days plus weekend transit time using UPS Ground to Houston. I sent them an e-mail and asked if I could pay to expedite the return shipping.

My general rule of thumb is that if I spent over $3k for the TV then I generally buy one because I have decide how much out of pocket risk I am willing to assume should it fail. I don't want my $8k...

I, as well, have been part of the unfortunate 1%. I had a Sony SXRD set that failed 18 months in and the extended warranty bought me a Panasonic Plasma as a replacement. Well worth the money IMO. ...
