Although I don't know about how good Phillips is with the warranty, I know you can wait to purchase it up to 30 days before the original is over. So I am just waiting till this thing is about 1 year old before I act. I also saw someone mention that if you buy it with AmEx you are covered for like 2 yrs on their warranty. Also someone mentioned another option, like Best Buy (totally guessing) or some other company that does a good extended warranty. I would look around on the web. Lots of places will cover tech products now for a pretty descent price.
