60U or 55UT? Help
My 50yo eyes are having a diff time with my Panny TC-50PS1 I got in 09 for 800.
The 60U50 is available for 900 while the 55UT50 is 756 OTD for me.
I have a Tc-P50S1(2009) that is just too small from 13' from my bed. I am wondering if the extra 150 is warratned for the 60"...
BTW...both the U ane the UT use the G15 panel.
The TC-Pxxyy60 series will be available 3/1 with Voice Command and Web Browsing but with higher MSRPS.....
Not sure the 55" will be enough size pop over the 50 I have and dont want to pay 150 bucks for 5" more that tne UT....
What a quandry....
All I know is you got to be nuts to spend VT money.

|HappyHighwayman||The Costco extended warranty is so cheap it might just be worth rolling it into the cost of the set.|

|475F||Part of the extended warranty calculation is based on you breaking the set, selling it, getting it stolen etc. before the period ends. Conversely, if you're not gonna keep it 4 years.... (I'm assuming these aren't transferable?)|

This is my first Panasonic TV. Last thing I want is an xbox rrod situation where I'm out $700 after the manuf expires and the red light of death rears it's ugly head. I think $100 is a small price to pay for insurance. I paid $65 with the discount, so even better, for me of course. Others may not agree.
Too many google searches indicate Panasonics have a problem. Unfortunately, we won't know how many since Panasonic is not going to come out and say what the failure rate is.
Knowing this, it still didn't stop me from buying the TV. Why? Because the picture is wonderful and the price to size ratio is hard to beat. Same reason why I bought an xbox over a PS3. I knew the xbox had problems. But the overall experience was better for me than what the competitor had to offer.
To each their own. With that said. I don't regret buying this TV and look forward to enjoying it worry free for the next 4 yrs.

Costco's SquareTrade pricing is exclusive to Costco Members. You must purchase a SquareTrade Service Plan from a Costco Warehouse or from www.costco.com. Costco members may also purchase a SquareTrade Service plan to cover a new TV purchased outside of Costco from an authorized retailer in the US. Service Plan must be bought within 60 days of purchasing the TV. *Excludes limited life consumables such as batteries and lamps.

Insurance companies "pretty much never lose" because that's how they make money. They assume your risk for a premium. That's how they stay in business.
Oh and speaking about overhead, what deal doesn't involve overhead?

For every other situation, you're paying extra money for "peace of mind" with statistically no benefit. Insurance is a benefit when the costs could potentially lead to a grievous burden. A TV for a few hundred bucks isn't that type of situation. If it is...you shouldn't be buying a TV in the first place.

Oh really? Please explain?
This is a $700 purchase.
I paid $65 to cover this TV for an additional 3 yrs, 4 yrs total (1 yr Manuf + 3 yrs squaretrade)
So for 9% of the purchase price, I will have peace of mind for the next 4 years.
Without the extended warranty what do I do if my TV breaks 13 months after I purchased it?
The cost to repair is near $400 - $500
At that point, might as well buy a new TV.
So I fail to see how purchasing an extended warranty for 9% of the purchase price is a sucker deal, especially if my TV breaks after the 1 yr manuf. warranty expires.
