I'm Not shure abought the stockpile of parts for these, but my brother has a 50" that is 11yrs old and still looks great. That's why I only purched a 2yr plan. Save your money I don't think u will have any problems. There is an Eco setting from the factory, turn that to off it really holds the color back,w that setting off the picture is absolutely amazing. U will love this tv.
