If I bought a TV larger than 32", I would consider the extended warranty if the store offers it, for just this reason. (My parents bought a giant LG, 50" or 60", at Brandsmart. They bought the extended warranty. I told them they wasted their money. Until less than a year later, the converter fried. Someone came out, took it apart, ordered a converter, came back in a week, put it in, TV works fine again.)
Do not ever do this.
Extended warranties are one of the only ways that stores make up gross margin. It's not your job to needlessly give them money.
Would you buy insurance if you were playing blackjack at $1000 a hand?
