Its ok Ill "risk" the $105 that it would cost for the extended ST warranty on a 3K TV....Its always dumb until you need to use it, then you may be grateful that you had it....As its been said it a personal choice if you feel like you want\need one that ok, if you feel they are a rip off and dont use them thats ok too. Calling someone from dumb for doing it though is uncalled for.

$105 is worth the piece of mind knowing that the set is covered. And with the new technology that they are starting to use in these units, there is 4-year proof showing it will all hold together. It is still new to them as well

Like I said it is M A T H. Not "personal preference". Everybody makes the same idiotic reasons for buying these. let's see, Your Uncle louie bought a warranty and the very next day his tv exploded. Guess what? While people type this with awe, they still can't conceive of the fact that it is totally meaningless. There are legions of people who buy warranties, buy a Toyota Prius "to save money", etc, etc. They only support they get is from salesman and people like them. Every financial, scientific and technical review runs the numbers and say "no". There is the psychological human need to justify the actions we take.

Have you taken out meteorite insurance? Didn't you see that Russian thing that was all over the news?
