*Took away one star because my mother never hugged me as a child and as a result I am never completely satisfied.
Under normal circumstances I do not purchase extended warranties, with the exception of large appliances subject to heavy usage.
However, (pause for affect)...in the event that I am able to find an open box item categorized as excellent for a price decrease close to twice the cost of a 4 year service plan I go for it. In this case, I purchased a subwoofer normally priced at $300 for $225 and paid around $40 for a 4 year seevice plan. Since I was fully prepared to take the $300 hit, I figured that it was advisable to pay less for the product and add in the ability to play my music at irresponsible levels for durations longer than advised; all while being backed by a service plan and still paying around $35 less than I planned to spend.
Open box disclaimer: I did get burned on the open box item. It was incorrectly categorized online as having all parts and components, but was missing all of them except the main unit. This could be avoided if the item can be checked in store, but I purchased it blind online. So if you need it to be whole the day you receive it proceed with caution. No need to fret though, Best Buy made it right in short order.
