warranty- a good reseller will work with you after the sell to fix any problems.
I know it is not the same as a factory warranty, but I am more than
happy to have Terry work on my unit in house. I know he won't
be satisfied until the job is done right, and he has always been
entirely reasonable in regards to price.
But for some reason, by living in the middle of America, rather than having an advantage of being centrally located, instead I am equidistant from everyone :(
I am semi-technically capable, but I wouldn't want to get in a part swapping, long-distance diagnosis of a crt problem. Having a unit that can be CHEAPLY boxed and shipped to a service center has to count for something. - not to mention the hot swap warrantys that some mfgrs now have.
That doesn't mean I am dumping my 980, nor does it mean I won't buy a nice 9" if they get in my price range, but warranty and ease of service can be a valid consideration.
