Argos Replacement Cover on PS3

Thinking about going for a Playstation 3 from Argos, and taking out the 3 Year replacement cover on the item, however I'm a little worried on what will happen if anything does go wrong.

My main concern is that if the console does break or fail, do they replace it with a brand new boxed one or do they send it off for repair?

If anyone can clear this up or if anyone has had a problem with a console or electronic item from argos and took out replacement cover.

Thanks

replacement cover is ony available on goods up to £150, then it goes to repair policy, on a replacement if it breaks it is replaced, if after a year or accidental then the policy ends but you can take it out again on the new item they give you, if none in stock they will give you gift certificates

Thanks sassie for your reply

Hmm i thought if anything was faulty that a replacement was given and not repaired, not completely sure if it's worth doing now, plus it's £40

I know its covered by Sony for the first year anyway.

Best place to buy is Game or Gamestation, they offer a 'replace' scheme for anything you break even acidentally.

e.g: stand on a controller and break it.

then you cannot buy a replacement cover, only a repair one

have you looked in comet/dixons/currys as i think their policy covers you for 3 years no matter how many times it goes wrong, think argos one is void if you claim after the first year

i dont know about gamestation, but i know game is a repair warranty, because i was going to get my ds from there until they said it was a repar policy not a replaement

another idea is to buy it with a nationwide credit card and it will then have a free two year warranty.

if it can be repaired it will be, if they fail to repair they will replace, all poicies do that, but you can take out a replacement warranty with argos, they do not repair, it is replaced immediately, but only on consoles up to £150, after that you have to take the same sort of warranty game offers, they repair and if cant repair they replace, more often than not they can repair
