    Is it just me or do extended warranties seem a con? I pay contents insurance and it convers my TV for life! Why pay 3 - 400 for a 5 yr warranty when you could just "accidently spill some beer" down the back of your TV if it packs up and claim on your contents insurance?

    You are the con if you make a false claim, putting up the premiums for all the honest people. If caught, it's a possible 5 yr stretch. Nice.
