Returning my set today. at times it would make an extremely lound continuous and deafening buzz if I turned off the cable box and the set would power on and off by itself, each cycle took about 2 minutes. I guess no one else here had this issue?

Bought this TV about a year ago, definitely worth it, especially at this price.

This misled me a bit but i was going to get the extended warranty anyways.

Its actually 2 (comes with TV via manufacturer/costco) + 3 years extended warranty (ExcellencePlus). So really $60 for 3 additional years or $20/year.

Still agree with your statement its a no brainer.
What about credit cards that extend warranty an extra year. Does that apply to Costco or is the extra year the same 2nd year that Costco covers?

I'm not exactly sure, but it is different than the costco one. You'll have to check what the terms and conditions are on the credit card. i.e. if its 1 additional year after manufacturers warranty or if its 1 additional year after all warranty, including extended.

BTW Even though they can be handy, getting coverage through a CC can be a pain. If you want to get preapprovals it could take weeks before you get your TV repaired.
For $60 for a 5 year warranty, this is a no brainer.
Ask me about the AMEX Air Miles Reserve Credit Card. A much better way to redeem your Dream Air Miles.

$60 for 3 additional years on top of the 2 that comes TVs purchased at Costco. Just to be clear, but absolutely a no brainer.

Consider yourself blessed that this happened the first 90 days and not after.
Guess I was blessed thrice, as I got the last one at Dundas / Dixie, then was charged only $30 for the warranty.

How is that possible? Usually if the tv is over 500 dollars warranty charged is 59.99. Did you get the last tv at a discounted price? Below 500 dollars?

Wow, not that lucky. I was there on Monday, they had 2 sets left at the $649 price. Today there was one left priced at $599. Guess they punched in wrong wty price.

It's a bit funny to me that when I first started coming onto RFD many years ago it was generally accepted that extended warranty everywhere was a cash grab scam. Now I see it being recommended as a must purchase for many retailers, not just Costco.

I wonder are tvs not lasting as long anymore?

Yes, TVs do not last as long as they used to. In terms of extended warranty still a cash grab for everywhere except Costco, you'll pay $29-79 for 5 year warranty where a similiar length warranty from other retailers will be 2-3x that and loaded with b.s. terms and condtions.

My nine year old 46" Samsung LCD was having picture issues intermittently for the past few weeks so after reading the review the OP posted I decided to get this tv. Luckily I was able to find one. The lower end E series wasn't much cheaper and the higher end P series looks better but I didn't want to pay 50% more. The price in the OP was 599.99 until Feb 24th but it's on clearance for $599.97 so you can still get it for $600 if you can find stock.

The extended warranty is sold on a card that contains all 3 bar codes for each price levels for the warranty. Sounds like the cashier scanned the wrong bar code and was charged less. Not sure if it is being blessed for getting charged less, how do you know for certain that the extended warranty is valid for the purchase.

I guess if you are able to register the TV then it should be ok. I'm not sure what the claim process is and what is required in terms of paperwork to process claim. It's $10 / year for 3 years of savings, not sure if the risk is worth it. Mind as well save the $60 altogether and stick with 2 year warranty that comes with the TV.
