    I bought a 37 panny from Comet.

    It came with a 1 year guarantee.

    They are now offering an additinal 3 years for £300 which isn't too bad.

    What do you think?

    Should I go for it?

    check what it covers, can comet repair plasma's or do you have to wait for panny engineers to look at it, do you get a loan set (Even a CRT?) and does it cover accidental damage.
    Check cause the price sounds reasonable.
    (I'd expect engineer call outs and loan set at least)

    Here is whats covered:

    Cost of repair inc parts and labour
    Accidental damage (Pysical damage as a result of unforseen circumstances)
    If unable to repair replacement given. New for old

    Once a replacement made policy will end immediately, but I may dispose of said equipment as I see fit.

    They refer to my plasma as a television. (I have written to them comfirming this)

    The plan is underwritten by Domestic and General

    you could try contacting domestic and general directly, to see if they are cheaper.

    link

    I tried putting in your screen, but it wouldn't give me a quote, so you'll probably have to give them a ring.

    Also worth finding out whether your home contents cover gives you accidental damage protection, and how much an engineer call out is worth?

    Hi Jason

    The first link quotes £450+ for extra 2 years
    The second £199 for extra 2 years which works out £100 per year but don't seem to offer 3 years extra

    you should also check what comet are offering. Usually their 3 and 5 year warranties are actually 1+2 and 1+4, so you are only getting an extra 2 years anyway?
