How many of you buy into it when you purchase something and they say,"For X amount of dollars we can give you an extended warranty" ? And how many of you have wished that you did buy that extended warranty? I'm one of the latter. A little over 3 yrs. ago I paid $998.00 for a lcd 46" HD television and it has &*%# to bed already. I mean come on now, I'ts not like a car or power tool. It just sits there and is either on or off. I have some regular TVs in the house that are 3 times as old and cost 1/4 that and are still working just fine. What is going on with companies these days? Don't they have any pride in their products?
