In my younger days, I generally shunned buying a warranty plan on anything. Now being older, I am considering buying a tv for the bedroom. Is it worth buying a 5year service plan 130.00 and 2 yr is 70 on a 4k tv like on vizio/tcl or hisense. Thoughts? I will not be changing out tvs like shoes et.
Keep in mind reviews speak to a television's performance, not it's longevity.
Very true, dating myself, before i got my first vizio plasma I gave away my 23-year-old Mitsubishi 27" that never had a problem. Mt Sammy plasma is still doing we after9 yrs +and no issues. I just have big concerns with today's tv's not only with QC issues but manufactures have way too much tech in tv's.
whatever tv I get for my bedroom, whether it be vizio m-558, tcl 6 series, hisense h9f, I just hope it will last at least 13 yrs. This is why I am keeping my budget low on these type of tv's.
I think it's worth it for 5 year if you plan on keeping it. They pro rate it back to you if you buy a new TV.
Agreed. I had a friend who has a 63" Samsung 8000 series plasma. He bought the 5 year warranty from BB. Granted it wasn't cheap but then he had two boards go out on it - WITH 3 MONTHS LEFT ON THE WARRANTY. Best Buy sent him a check, however it was for the PURCHASE price of the TV. He found a company that rebuilds the boards and had them done for $600 with repair and shipping and banked the rest.
BB warranty definitely worth the cost - to him - in this case...
