5 year extended warranties?

Hi,

I was planning on buying a 5 year extended warranty for a new TV from Richer Sounds, but someone mentioned that the Sale of Goods Act actually should cover me for up to 6 years?

If that is the case, I want to know what the point of me or anyone buying a 5 year warranty on TVs is ??!

Thanks very much

The operative words are "Up to" 6 years.

It depends on the amount you spend on your T.V. If it is £100, the sale of goods act may cover it for 2 years, if you spent £3000, the Sale Of Goods Act may cover for 6 years.

Generally, warranties are worthless. Richer Sounds used to offer a money back warranty, have they changed this now?

Oh, it depends on value? I thought it literally was based on how long a product is expected to last, and in my opinion, any TV should be expected to last at least a few years...

By the way, it is selling for £600, and an extra £60 for their 5 year warranty. So do you think I should actually buy it from them?

I checked the site, and I don't think they offer a money-back guarantee, apart from within the first 45 days.

Thanks

If I were you I'd maybe think about getting John Lewis to 'Price Match' that set as their price will include the 5 year warranty. Their warranty is about the best you'll get as it isn't tied to a third party but is their own in-house warranty.

John Lewis don't sell that TV! :(

But, this warranty is direct with RS too.
