buying the extended warranty...

is buying the extended warranty worth it?

For example buy.com has a 3 year extended warranty for $84.00...

has anyone done this? has anyone used it? good experience? bad?

usually adorama and B&H have it for $20...

For $20, I think it is a no brainer.

No, it is the same official Pentax K-r extended warranty offered elsewhere... you would be getting sincerely ripped off if you paid $84 for it.
