When is an extended warranty worth buying

TV Warranties

Most of today's TV makers support their products with excellent warranties and good customer service. So why buy the extra one being offered at the electronics store?

For high-end or mission-critical TV sets (perhaps those used in a business, for example), extended warranties offer peace of mind. Of course, electronics sellers want you to buy them every time. When is it worth it?

  • How much does the warranty cost as a percentage of the TV's cost? If it's more than 25 percent, skip it.
  • Will you use extra features like free maintenance?
  • How much of a problem is it for you if your TV is not working?
  • What is most likely to go wrong with your machine, and does the warranty cover it?
