You need to think about this on your own, and preferably without the calculator. Why? Because you're 1. Becoming confused by what the math means, and 2. Missing the point of how insurance is a small front-loaded payment to stave off the potential for a much larger trailing payment.This is not the right thread for this so just think about it your own, preferably with a calculator.
Correct. And your later point (snipped out by me) is also spot on: Whether or not a warranty is "worth it" is hardly a given, so all of this conversation does hinge upon the price of this peace of mind weighed against the potential cost later.You're still missing the point. The reason for buying insurance, warrantees, etc. is to cover unexpected financial burdens that you can't or don't want to cover yourself out of pocket.
All I know is that I registered and SquareTrade accepted my purchase invoice for a 65" G6 and charged me the $89 for the warranty. I assume that I now have a valid contract.I question if SqareTrade even offers coverage for TVs that cost that high. I don't want to have to bother convincing SquareTrade that their recommended replacement set is not of similar pedigree to the one they're replacing. That's why I paid 5 times as much for a Mack Warranty. I have purchased them in the past and have yet to file a claim. We'll see in due time if that changes and if they provide a superior experience.
My calibrator Wont calibrate any Oled before 300 hours usage.In my experience, electronics often have a burn in period to sound or look their best. I know my Sony 950b took 50 or so hours to snap in. Do you guys find a similar effect on these OLED panels? Thanks. Regards. Ned.
Don't expect much help from them if you have pixel issues other than major issues. From LG's own warranty info included with the tv:All I know is that I registered and SquareTrade accepted my purchase invoice for a 65" G6 and charged me the $89 for the warranty. I assume that I now have a valid contract.
You can read their full terms and conditions here:
We will match the manufacturer’s warranty for the Term of Your Protection Plan.
Thanks, how long typically it takes for it to switch off the LED after tv has been turned off?If you switch it off via remote and still see a red LED emanating through the USB/HDMI ports, you will know it's running. Once the cycle is over, that LED will shut off.
Right around 400 hours. I will find out tomorrow what BB has to "officially" say when the tech comes out. I will be covering a few windows with thick blankets to make the room nice and dark, which will make that stuck pixel really stick out.
YES, just follow the instructions that are both on the box and one side of the white thin foam bag that is around the whole TV. DO NOT remove that bag as that prevents damage to the front of the panel. Two other considerations. The instructions also show that you should take two of the Styrofoam protectors and insert them into the box at its corners. This is to make sure the box does not collapse and put the wrong pressure on the panel. Lastly some people said they laid it down on its back. I would NOT recommend doing that as that would present an uneven load to the panel and could cause damage.Follow the LG instructions and it's dead easy as well as safe.
It only takes one person for the 55" OLEDs. I put two couch cushions on a table, laid the TV face down, pulled off the cellophane stuff on the back, and installed the stand in about five minutes. I only needed a second person for wall mounting later on.The bottom line is just follow the instructions and USE TWO PEOPLE. I was going to try to lay it down flat myself but was way too concerned about putting uneven pressure on the panel. I got one of my neighbors to help and it took all of 10 minutes including him helping me lift it on to its table.
