Default A question on wether to purchase the extended warranty for the A3

Hello, Im relatively new to the forum and am going to be picking up an A3 either Friday or Saturday. I would just like peoples input as to wether it is worth buying the extended warranty.

I have gift cards from Best Buy and that's where I'll be purchasing the player and last I looked they had the 4 year extended warranty for 79.00.

Is it worth it or not??

I'd like to know what you think

Thanks

I personally never buy warranties. Electronics are usually either good to go from day one or they are quirky from day one which means you exchange it within the 30-day return period in a worst case scenario.

Otherwise, if it works good for the first year, chances are that it will work good for several years. Companies know this and thats why they push warranties.... mostly profit for them since consumers rarely use them!

My 2 cents....

I usually get the warranties on DVD players because they have so many more moving parts than other electronics, but $79 is too much for this one. Just look how much the prices have come down on HD DVD players so far. You will be able to buy a new player for that in less than a year.
