Considering the awful 90 days on labor of the factory warranty; any thoughts on buying the extended warranty from Circuit City on the FZ5?

I'm not usually an extended buyer, but I just had my Panny DVD quit after 2 1/2 years and something is telling me to consider it.

I did. $459.99 for the FZ20. 89.99 for the 3 yr plan that is pretty inclusive, as I remember. peace of mind Its a bet, a personal call.

I extended for 3 years for $40 on my FZ15. Just to many things that could go wrong. Hope they never do, but they could.

i paid $450 for my FZ20, and $99 for 5 year comprehensive warranty. i figure even with the warranty it still cost me less than the retail price of the camera, and if anything ever craps out, i'm covered. by the time the warranty expires, that FZ20 will be so well "used" i'll be probably ready for the next model anyway!

Thanks guys,

I'm sure you think it's a no-brainer, but sometimes my wife thinks I have no brain. Your suggestions makes it easier to part with the extra cash.

I didnt.... but as a general rule, if you dont get it, something will probably go wrong, if you do get it, you'll probably never have any problems with it anyway. but thats the way things go! had it happen with a computer a while back, bought 3 year extended warranty for it, and nothing ever broke until 5 years after i got it, which was time for a new one anyway.

I normally don't do extended warranties, but this time I did. I couldn't pass up the MARK warranty; 5 years for $50.00

I NEVER do extended warranties, except on Used Cars. You would not believe how much of the salesperson's commissions/bonuses are derived from selling extended warranties.
