    I feel like my rule of thumb is if your TV is going to break in 5 years say it breaks in like 4 years after you get it are you still going to want that specific model TV? It’s the answer to that is no I’d rather have a newer TV then don’t get an extended warranty unless it’s one that offers some sort of credit towards a newer one if the old one is not available or something like that

    Let me explain to you how extended warranty works. This is a real review for those who are on the fence. I purchase a 55 inch Sony TV Model XBR-55A8H on November 2020 from Brandsmart USA. Amazing TV but I got a lemon. I purchased the extended warranty for an extra $150 dollars for 3 years. But let me explain something to you guys. Is not really 3 years. Is only 2 years! Why? Well the first year is the warranty that comes from the manufacturer. They include the first year with your purchase of the 3 years extended warranty. So in reality you’re not getting 3 years after the 1 year manufacturer warranty. You’re only getting 2 years in total from the 3 years you purchased. Let say you didn’t buy the extended warranty, you are still cover 100% for the first year from the manufacturer. I always thought that when I purchased the extended warranty that the warranty would start after the 1 year from the manufacturer but it doesn’t work like that. So now you know!. Also my new TV has been repair twice already. First time the power circuit board and the main board got replaced. 6 months later the power cord and power circuit board got replaced. Now today 02/28/2022 there is no power at all to the TV. I have already tried all of the power on and off methods and holding the power off for 15 seconds on the remote without batteries and then try turning on tv from the TV power button on the back and nothing. Brandsmart USA is coming for the 3rd time this thursday to fix. For those who think that the store is just going to give you a brand new tv just because you purchased the extended warranty thing again!! They will keep fixing it over and over but it will be extremely difficult for the TV technician to declare the TV as a lemon and they will gladly just keep coming to your house to keep repairing your tv again. My advice to anyone is to avoid buying any extended warranty. Is not worth it. The sales person will lie to you all of the time and always try to sell you the extended warranty and tell you they will repair the tv and if they can not fix it they will give you a new one. But the truth is that all of the TV’s are repairable. So you will never get a new replacement. Remember that! I am going through this nightmare as we speak and I am trying to help everyone here watching all of this videos deciding if they should purchased the extended warranty or not. Oh yes the worst part is that when you schedule a repair service you have to wait 3 to 5 days for the technician to come to your house, he will take the tv apart, leave wide open with the cover off, and then he will tell you that he has to order the parts and that usually take 7 to 10 business day. You are stuck for 2 weeks without any TV. I know because i’ve been through this twice already and now i’m going through a 3rd time. Do not freaking waste your money on this stupid warranty. But the parts cheap;y on Ebay and replace the boards yourself. Is not difficult. I would do it but I can’t since I purchased the warranty and i’m letting them do it even if it takes a long time. But the next time I am not going to buy any warranty. Ok I’m out and i hope i was able to help anyone out.

    How about purchasing a warranty from Upsie? Does this company have a good reputation?

    I have gotten several extended warranties over the years mostly through SquareTrade typically I will always try to get an extended warranty on any flat panel that I buy that has backlighting because due to backlighting burning out on either LCD or LED TVs it happens after a while and it’s extremely difficult to repair without paying well over the cost of the extended warranty that I was buying at least I got a 60 inch replaced twice and a Hisense 65in replaced once due to backlighting issues and I got to keep the broken one well the one with the bad backlighting to sell on the second hand Market for parts
