What is the cost of the warranty?? I generally don't think extended warranties are a good deal for digital cameras. Remember, technology is still advancing rapidly in this area, and you'll likely be able to purchase a comparable ( or better) camera to your w1 in 3 years for a very good price. Or look at it this way....would you be satisfied getting a camera repaired today that you bought back in 2002???

I got one for 4 years from BestBuy for $59.99. I'm just afraid that LCD might break or something might go wrong. My previous digital camera, Fuji S5000, a year and a half old, is already showing few slowdowns and lockups and I don't have any warranties on it. Plus, with digicams, instead of fixing it 2-3 years down the road, they will just end up giving you a comparable one (pricewise).
