fluffy - I'll be sending the MN state police (or Strejek) over to check on your 5-finger discount!!
How exactly you can walk out of a store with a 73" Mits is beyond me!!
Live in the middle of no where and need service!
I owned a 60" TV (non-HD) since 2000, Sony called in late 2003 and said they needed to send someone out in order to resolve a recall issue. There was no Sony Authorized repair person so they decided to give me a new TV, a 70" HDTV.
This past spring, I called Sony again about a deformed lamp door on the 70" which was giving me fits. Anyway, Sony Extended Warranty (Service Port) decided again to exchange out the TV for a 73 inch Mitsubishi rather then send me a $4.40 lamp door (which I have since bought 10 of).
Who ever said Extended Warranties don't pay
