Sony triples TV warranty length

Promotion extends TV warranties to three years

Sony has announced a promotion tripling the length of its LCD and LED television warranties, extending them from 12 to 36 months.

Bravia LCD televisions purchased from the start of October until the end of the year will be eligible for the increased warranty, although customers must register their televisions online at the Sony Warranty Web site. The promotion covers all Sony Bravia LCD television models including the Sony Bravia KDL40ZX1 and the Sony Bravia W series.

However, the extension does not apply to the $6999 Sony XEL-1 OLED television, which only comes with a 12 month manufacturer’s warranty.

You'll need the extended warranty, too

15 months after purchasing my 50" Bravia X-series it is now malfunctioning. Should have purchases the extended warranty I suppose.

update ... Sony came to the party

Update to the first post here about malfunctionaing X-series Bravia ...

Despite being out of warranty by 6 months, Sony paid the vast majority of the $2900 charge to replace the LCD panel assembly.

The repairer said it was very common that panels need replacing in the KDL46X3100. He is personally doing 4 a week.

But at least Sony are acknowledging what is, very possibly, a design fault.

Sony only offered to sell me a new unit when my 52" Bravia panel went out and it was 4 days prior to warranty expiration. How did you get them to warranty yours?

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
