Sony 40" KDL-40XBR2 LCD TV

by michhala / June 20, 2012 11:54 AM PDT

My Bravia TV 1080/w internet capability, was purchased July 10, 2007 with a $222.00 warranty expiring July 10, 2012. The discounted renewal cost for one year is $246.49 and $450.49 for two years. I am one who is always buying warranties for peace of mind, but this time I am hesitating. I paid a little over $2,000 for the TV in 2007 (excluding the warranty) and have had no regrets....yet.

I have no idea of the cost to have a TV repairman come to the house to fix a problem when there is no warrranty. It is also not out of the question for me to buy a new TV if the repair bill was prohibitve. In addition, I think prices have gone down.

Sure would appreciate some helpful input.

My thanks.....Miki

I am a Sony TV person since the beginning of time :)

However, I know there are other good TVs, such as you mention, out there at low prices. When I purchased my TV it was high-end of the Sony line, and today, the same TV costs very little. That said, if I bought another it would likely be whatever is their current high-end which is the same price. as I paid for my 2007......but that is because my TVs never went bad, they just went out of style. If I had to buy a new TV before mine was of age, I would probably be inclinded to go cheaper.

Your point is well taken and I am drifting away from the idea of renewing the service plan. I recall when I purchased the service contract I did so for protection because once in awhile you can get a TV that is defective and dies in the early years.

Appreciate your reply.....thank you
