Reading this forum it seems that a lot of us have had to return our equipment. Myself included, my first Pan E85 lasting 10 days, touch wood and cross everything, the replacement has so far been fine. Its left me considering whether its worthwhile paying out for the extended warranty insurance to protect the £460- investment. Normally I would run a mile at such an idea but having experienced the disappointment of the long awaited machine going wrong I'm seriously considering it. The downside is the cost of course £124 for 4 years additional protection it says on the leaflet (though it says 2/3 years on the website - not encouraging much faith that they know what theyre doing). In a couple of years the price of a new machine might only be a couple of hundered pounds anyway. After my initial experience I don't have a great deal of faith in the robustness of the product so I'm inclined to shell out yet more cash. Any comments? Do you think its better to wait until the 12 months manufacturers warranty nears its end and then take out more cover? Anyone done it?
