IMHO, I believe the ext. warranty are a racket that's pure profit for the vendors. It has been mentioned often enough by consumer groups, that ext. warranties maybe more for a "feel good" item for the customer. Electronics are build well enough they don't have that many problems because the makers really feel the pinch if they can't sell product as the word gets around. However, in my local personal experience many a buyer has brought the ext. warranties mainly because of the huge cost items and a little more for an ext. warranty doesn't seem bad. However, it always good to read the "FINE PRINT" and see just how the warranty works, factory and ext. warranty can be a real different experience. Plus, save those important papers in a safe place plus the box the LCD came in. If you like check out consumer reports on the products you plan to buy and review written feedback and anything else.
I have just purchased a 46" Samsung LN46B750 and a 52" Samsung LN52B750
The question is whether to spend an additional $249 for an extended
5 year warranty for each set (total $498).
I purchased both sets with the Am. Exp. Card so I will have 1 yr. from
Samsung and 1 year from Am. Exp. (2yr. total coverage).
Therefore, the 5 yr. extended warranty will give me 3 additional yrs.
The 52" tv will probably be on 12 hours a day.
The 46" tv will probably be on 4-5 hours a day.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much,
