People will have differing opinions on this, but I've seen too much info on this that would suggest that extended warranties are almost never worth it.
If something goes wrong with a device, it is usually within the first year of it's life. If it makes it past that, it's almost always fine.
All you need to know is that people that sell extended warranties make a killing on them, because the over, over, overwhelming majority of things that people buy extended warranties on, never need servicing. Big box stores care more about selling you a warranty than just about anything else.
I don't buy them, and have only actually been in need of it once in my life. You might say that makes the case for them, but I've owned an s-load of gear in my time, and all the money I saved by never buying an extended warranty dwarfs the one time I needed it by epic proportions. I think that would be most people's experience unless they are mistreating their electronics in some way.
