This seems to be a popular question in the forum. As many of you seem to be buying the PV500 - has anyone found cheaper than here? http://www.hispek.com/ I'm looking for the 42" with a pedestal stand. This one has no extended guarantee. Does anyone know the failure rates for plamas screens over a year old, as versus standard CRT TVs? As a gambling woman, I've never bother with extended warranties for normal TVs and never regretted not getting one either. Any comments?
