You sure you're ok with that?
Still has the full warranty. He could also purchase one of the many extended warranty options out there. Personally, I wouldn't buy it without additional coverage. Still a great price though.
People often look at getting a warranty as the get-out-of-jail-free card for buying a used TV. It is not.
Let's look at my 4 hours a day viewing example:
- With a new set, and a 4 year whopping good warranty, at the end of it you have 4 year old set.
- With that particular set, and that same warranty, at the end of it you have a 9 1/2 year old set!!!!!!!
Also, keep in mind, that it's difficult to get a warranty these days that allows endless repairs, or even repairs beyond the value.
At the end of your warranty you might just end up with a TV that croaks soon. Most people would find that unacceptable. That "good price" isn't magic for that particular TV....you're trading away a awful lot for it.
