Now for good advice: I highly recommend getting an extended warranty on new HDTVs. They don't hold up the way TVs used to do. My first HDTV started blowing pixels after only a year. I'm on my 2nd one now (got smart and bought the warranty) and it's on its third motherboard (in a year).

I had my Sharp HDTV for about 4 years and bought one for my father about 3 years ago. Neither have had any problems.

Some brands do have a high failure rate. Three motherboards in a year either means that you have chosen a very model or something about your home is damaging the motherboards (maybe power surges).

How well do service contracts cover stuck pixels? I suspect that they set a minimum number before they will cover repair.
