I suggest you read the warranty pdf from www.plasmavision.com for more information. Pioneer has two divisions - they are completely seperate from one another. The Elite line is a little more tightly controlled. Pioneer uses many distributors to move product, thus allowing internet companies to gain access to them. Many of the Internet companies don't even have wharehouses, they just drop ship the product from their distributors.
