I recently received a sony 28LS35U as a replacement after two JVC AV28S2's and I noticed that I can get the tube guarantee extended for 3yrs for £36 direct from Sony. I usually stay well clear of the usual Currys/Comet extended guarantees but in this case the price isn't too bad. So the question is, if my tube lasts a year will it last forever like my old Sony or should I take up the offer as widescreen tubes get a bit flakey after a while ? Just in case anyones interested the TV's excellent if you're getting the sound from elsewhere. A bit of fiddling with the geometry in the service menu and it's as good as I've seen on a 50hz and I've got no horrible blodges/stains on the screen.
