thanks for your help in advance and Happy Holidays!
The pundits clain if something is going to go wrong it normally happens within the first 90 days as the set breaks in,I really do not know how true that is?
Samsung in the USA was giving three months additional warranty if you registered on the web site immediately that may be available to you in Canada.
An other aspect of the purchase if you you use your credit card many of the card companies give you an extra 1 year warranty so potentially you would have a 2 yr 3 month warranty as opposed to a total of 4 years.
Also you may have the opportunity to buy the extended warranty at any time up to 1 year.
I do not know if it makes any difference but are you buying the warranty from Samsung or is it a best buy warranty..... is there a difference in the price?.
This time around I did not buy warranty the last time I did buy a 4 year warranty which I never used.
I can tell you some of the repairs can be costly as these new tvs consist of circuit boards having recently had a tv struck by lightning the circuit board was 550 installed.. It was covered by insurance and they bought me a new tv instead because of the high repair cost and that is always an alternative for you if the repairs get too costly.
One additional note the extra warranty is 400 dollars plus gst so that makes it $452.00
It really depends on your comfort level but the majority of the companies make money on additional warrany so
you will have to make an informed decsion that suits your needs and requiremnents..Edited by James T - 12/26/12 at 3:16am
