    Can anyone suggest any independent sellers of Extended Warranties for LCD TV's. Most companies I have looked at will not cover Plasma / LCD TV's. Comet want £350.00 fo five years. Maybe I should just go with this. Any suggestions out there, and what do I need to watch out for in terms of small print.

    Thanks

    If you havn't already purchased-
    John Lewis do a free 5 year warranty on their TVs.
    ...and they price match.
    ...and their service is great.

    there are lots of posts about JL price matches around the country.

    If you have purchased, I wish you good luck in your search.

    I thought about this as well, then finally decided that if anything was to go wrong with the TV i'd just claim on my household insurance, i'm with Marks and Spencers and they cover items upto 4k without needing to be named on the policy, i've claimed off them before and they're pretty good at it. The other reason i thought of this was due to the fact that anything that could or would go wrong should really happen in the first year.

    Household insurance that covers breakdown / mechanical faults!???
    :confused:
    Would like to see that policy wording.

    Would have thought that cover would only be for theft, fire, water or accidental damage.

    Have you got a link or a pdf of a household contents policy wording that doesn't exclude mechanical breakdown of electrical goods. I would like to take a look at that. Most policies / policy wordings are available online if you could post the link.
    Thanks.

    www.warrantyex.co.uk sell D&G warranties that you can buy up to 3 months after purchase with full benefits (malfunction, accidents, repair or replace). The only thing on their site is that a warranty for a £480 LCD TV costs the same as one for a £1480 tv !!!? (£105 for 3 years)

    I was just saying due to the fact i got my laptop fixed last month by my insurance firm, they sent an engineer out from the dixons group, he fixed it onsite and i didn't have to put in a claim as it was working again.

    Nobody going to post then? That's a pity - if someone does have a household contents policy that covers mechanical breakdown of electrical goods, it would be great to share that info with other forum members. If it were not much more expensive than a standard household insurance policy it would be a bargain when compared to the high cost of aftersale warranties for electrical goods.
