...BUT, if you purchase a refurb with an existing 90-day warranty, the Adorama VIP warranty (at $7.95) will provide a full year of extended warranty cover. You have to purchase it before you purchase the unit; and it covers everything else you buy subsequently from Adorama for a full year, as well.
