The problem is that most people are no longer buying the same brands that used in the past. In the past majority of the time people would look at Sony, Samsung and LG. Now most people are buying TVs due to price and features. Vizio, sharp aka Hisense and even TCL are not usually built on the same scale as the brands we used to love. These brands unfortunately are not as reliable as Sony, lg and Samsung and are also poorly inspected and handled. I usually wouldn’t recommend getting a warranty but with Costco you can’t wrong for peace of mind.slowtyper wrote: ↑Mar 8th, 2019 8:19 pmIt's a bit funny to me that when I first started coming onto RFD many years ago it was generally accepted that extended warranty everywhere was a cash grab scam. Now I see it being recommended as a must purchase for many retailers, not just Costco.
I wonder are tvs not lasting as long anymore?
