Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SquareTrade 3-Year Warranty Plus Accident Protection (£250-300 Items) (Accessory)
Let's face it, a lot of the 'extended guarantee' stuff on the high street is a con, as usually items are covered either by the manufacturer's own warranty or your home insurance (and in fact it's how a lot of the big electrical retailer's profits are made) In the case of home insurance of course there may well be an excess - typically the first 50 pounds - and some exclusions as well. But having bought a nifty internet tablet, likely to be taken out and about a lot I felt that extended peace of mind was a real option, especially as it is of a size to be easily dropped, or stolen, dropped in my bath & etc. This product is the obvious solution, and appears to have very few exclusions. At about £16 a year its the sort of price I see as being sensible. Service so far has been professional and prompt. I'm not sure I'd take it out for a big TV etc, but for more 'at risk' handheld devices it seems just the job. (Note that the period of cover here includes the first year of ownership, so that there is some overlap, although the lack of exclusions means extra security to other, more regular guarantees.)

This is very similar to the cover big electrical retailers use, I don't understand why you've dismissed them as a con. Being covered by a warranty rarely actually helps by the way, lots of people think it does, but just because you can send the item off to them doesn't mean they'll fix it, or that they'll do it for free of charge.
