Do you have any advice for people relative to buying or using flat panel displays?
Buy the extended warranty! They are not just "money makers" for the store, they can save you money! Consider it insurance. You have insurance on every other expensive product you own, get it on your TV. When a screen goes bad out of factory warranty (1 year on most TV's) you will have to foot the bill if you don't have the extended warranty. These things are not bullet proof like the old tube TV's.
