It depends a lot on the reputation of a product and the price you are paying if you should get extra warranty or not. With in last 5 years quality of products have deteriorated so bad that it seems to me that manufacturers are doing it purposely so they can sell us xtra warranties to make money and play with the odds like Insurance companies do. I start buying warranties on all the printers Ive purchased in last 5 years. Printers prices ranging from $78 to $899. All 4 of these printers died between 13 to 15 month just after manufactures 1 year warranty expires. In all cases they sent me a check for the entire amount I paid plus warranty price. These brands included Epson, HP and Laxmark. Plus I prefer to buy warranties on merchandise my kids are going to use happy
