Elite 1 yr extended warranty (effective at end of 2yr + 3 month mfg warranty) 3 years and 3 months total coverage:
PRO 60: $97.99
PRO 70: $199.99
According to Elite and Sharp, you can only purchase 1 additional year at this time. They say an additional year will be offered at the end of the 3yr 3month period, and one more year following that (prices TBD) for a total 3 additional years ( 5yrs 3months total coverage).
I will always buy the coverage for electronics of this level of investment. My Sony XBR8 suffered an irreparable panel failure last year, about 1 year after the end of the mfg warranty, but well within the 3 year extended warranty purchased for $550. While it was tough laying out those additional $$, when the check arrived for the full purchase price, I knew I would never go without an extended warranty in the future. Fact is, high-end electronics are very expensive and very fickle to trust that they will go without failing for more than a few years.
Has anyone found a more attractive warranty offering than the Elite/Sharp offer?
