I was wondering how many of you have bought extended warranties. Why or why not?
I bought a one year extended warranty, because I've been hearing all types of horror stories *lately*

Please vote! Thanks!

I bought a 2 year warrenty at Electronics Boutique, because of all the PS2 horror stories. I'm especially glad I have one now with all the XBox's around here going a bit screwy. But, If mine screws up, I'm making them transfer my harddrive into the new one for free.

as i've said b4...i bought the extended warranty as well...i was hesitant but now i'm glad i did...i love the feeling of knowing that if anything happens to my xbox or any of my 4 1st party controllers...i can just bring em in and get replacements immediatley no questions asked. i've already exchanged 1 controller....that almost payed for the warranty right there.;)

50$ cad and I have the 3 yr EB warranty. Anything wrong, bring it in for a complete replacement on the spot no questions asked.

Why did I get it? Because its only 50 $ CAD you stingy bastards! :)

I have the two year Microsoft Warranty , I was considering the best buy one , but heard that they only replace it once, and with Microsoft its as many times as it takes, and I like having the security of knowing I will have an Xbox for along time with no worries

I didnt get it, though I am beginning to think I should have. Lots of strange problems seem to be occuring with lots of the xbox's. But then again I take good care of my stuff, never had a console break down on me. Heck my original Pong:Home edition machine still works!

MS 2 year. Hopefully I'll never have to use it.

The only way my xbox is gonna break is if I play it so much it blows up. I hope that never happens if it does I still got my receipt to return it.

i bought a 2 year warranty at comp usa just in case

i got the EW and was very glad about it. I had a defective xbox, took it back to EB, they walked out back, came back with a brand new xbox, put it in my hands and said your xbox can break down every month thru the life of the warrenty, and you can bring it back every time and walk out with a brand new one every time just like you are now...no questions asked.

Warrentys are a waste of money! Just return it if it breaks!

yea, can u imagine this.....

"Hi, I want to return my xbox. It's broken,

Store: Ok, no problem. Do u have your receipt and when did you buy it?

"Yes, I have my receipt right here. I bought it 1 year ago.

I didn't buy one, and my Xbox died 3 months after I bought it. I'm up shiet creak with that Xbox, but I've been playing my sister's and I'll probably buy a new one tonight... THIS TIME WITH A WARRANTEE! BTW... I'm not bitter about the Xbox breaking on me. Part of it was my fault, as I should have acknowledged the problems I was having from the get go and had it immedately replaced. On top of that, I didn't even take into account that it might have only been a short in the power cord that could be causing my problems (which it may have been) but I got angry and slammed my Xbox into nothingness and now I've screwed myself. Oh well... good thing I can afford a new one almost every two weeks... ;)
