The guy at Circuit City (who seemed pretty knowledgeable on the sets) said that it's highly recommended to have a very good power conditioner on the set, as it's sensitive to poser spikes and brownouts.
Do you live somewhere that has poor power reliability and constant thread of lightning strikes? If so I would search for the major "power supply" thread in this forum and study that before I bought anything. I also would ignore the advice of any salesman pitching Monster products even though I own some of them.
Another issue is the service plan. I'm considering the 2 Year plan for $299. I guess I'm concerned about a big repair bill and these things do have a hit or miss track record as far as quality goes.
There are several threads about the value of extended service plans. If you do a search for them you can get a good cross section of opinions.
