MACK warranties (or others like it): worth it?

Haven't bought the K10D yet, but I don't feel safe w/ a 1yr warranty. I know Pentax is better quality, but on a new model I think it would be prudent to have something to protect me for at least 3 yrs.

Anyone have any exp. with MACK warranties? Or any others? They are definitely cheaper than those service/protection plans that the store offers.

I have had a Mack warranty on my *istD and I have one on my DS. I have no experience how their service is because I never used it.
Having a Mack warranty advertised with my *ist D helped me a lot to get a top price when I sold it on Ebay (after the the K10D hype had started and the prices fell like crazy), so at least it helped me in some way.

The warranty was transferable for $ 15.00

Pentax is offering an extended warranty when you purchase the camera. Extends the warranty period to 3 years.

Thanks. Those stories were pretty awful. Hmm. I think the Pentax extended warranty is the way to go--no matter how much it costs.

Thanks guys
