Now, with the Sharp warranty you guys mentioned, it appears to be based on the purchase price and not the retail price (or even the cost to actually replace the tv).
So, this is technically not unlike the Costco Squaretrade Warranty?
Repair or replacement is at their discretion.
If they can not repair and are not willing to replace, they will just give you what's left over after they deduct the service repair costs from your purchase price.
And does the 3 yr extended warranty start after the manufacturer 1-yr warranty (total 4 years), or concurrently (total 3 years)?
no it's service &/or replace , without the charges for repairs
most cases they replace with a current new sized model , it's not a running total like SqT were a tech comes out multiple times & that each visit comes off the total payout . they reserve the right to refund the purchase price ,fully transferable with a $50.oo fee , Warranty will apply to any new display that is a replacement as well
the 3 years starts after the 15 months of regular warranty it gets more expensive the closer you get to the end of the 1st 15 months IE; buy it now
most times a tech comes out to see what wrong if it's the electronics they swap PCB boards ,if it is the panel that is defective then he orders a new display , they deliver a new display & remove the old
Sharp has been know to replace displays simply with emailed photos of panel display defects . If you can send a photo that shows a defective panel proof , they email you back & order you the new display then they will send a new one & pick-up the old all in the same day .
