Service plan term: 4 YearService plan covered value: $700-800
I'm getting ready to buy another computer, and given the problems with computers I've owned so far, an extensive warranty of several years is crucial. I looked at the website and the warranty, to see what is and isn't covered.

Negatives:
1) Warranty starts the day you buy the product, not the day you get it or plug it in (which can be weeks later.)
2) They will never pay more to fix the computer than you paid to buy it. If you have one costly repair because you have a melted motherboard, let's say, and then something else happens later, they may not be obligated to pay for it all, and may therefore decline to pay anything.
3) If they replace an item, that's it too. Coverage ends then. So what if the item they give you as a replacement fails within a week? You are out of luck. Sorry.
4) They can use substitute parts instead of the manufacturer's original parts.
5) You may have to pay to ship the item to them.
6) MANY things are not covered either. Reading through them, section "F" excludes "overheating", with no limits stated (so if they decide your computer failed due to some part overheating, they may choose not to fix it.)
7) Another exclusion is for battery failure (section L). Sure, they might only have to put in a $3 battery, but they can also choose to tell you the repair's not covered, and you are SOL.
8) Under section V, damage from a power surge or loss is not covered. Oops.
9) Under section Y, damage from a computer virus is NOT covered either. Your problem, not theirs.
10) Under section Z, a "manufacturer's error" (good luck arguing that) is not covered. Wouldn't ANY defect making a product not work be a manufacturer's error? If so, again, you have paid for a warranty that doesn't have to do jack.

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! You are better off looking for a REPUTABLE customer friendly company to get insurance with. The feel good, I am covered feeling evaporates once you actually have to file a claim. Various blogs have extremely negative comments about their customer service and settlement of claims (worth your time to look at complaints for SmartGuard and Warrantech). Better Business Bureau cites them for late mailings or emailings of actual contracts so customers are not aware of exclusions, which cover almost everything. We purchased a new computer, had it a month with a purchased 4 year plan when a power surge ruined the motherboard. Gateway stated they do not cover power surge damage at all. Had noted that our SmartGuard Plan indicated they did. We did NOT get the warranty info until after the fact. In trying to file a claim the initial female agent was extremely rude, told me it was a manufacturer warranty issue and not their problem if I had not ever seen the warranty, indicating it probably went to SPAM folder. Said it was an Amazon purchase anyway and she didn't deal with that, so asked for the Amazon Rep to which she informed me I was wasting my time but she did transfer me. In all my numerous years I have never been treated so rudely, just so you are prepared in case you do have this plan and ever have to use it. (Blogs from former employees will stun you on what they are instructed to say). On being transferred a man said that he would have the warranty to us within 24 hours with a PIN so we could file a claim. Did not happen.Read more ›

Smart Guard is owned by Warrentech, a corporation doing business under 35 different names. Despite its "A" rating from the Better Business Bureau, the BBB notes a pattern of consumer complaints concerning delays, difficulties with communication, and other issues connected to repairs which the company agreed to provide. An Internet search of the names "Smart Guard" and "Warrentech" has convinced me that a contract with this company is not a gamble I am prepared to make.

Incidentally, as I did not purchase the product, my one-star rating is in the same category as the reviewers who awarded Smart Guard with 4 or 5 stars -- NONE of whom have had repairs performed under the Plan.

No need to get this product. It's an extra warranty which in most cases it would take an act of congress before they would even come out to fix or repair the product. I refunded the purchase of this warranty, few days after I knew the manufacturer warranty will cover the same thing if not better. However, if I am buying a big ticket item that cost anywhere between $1500 to $5000. I will consider it. FYI, they are not affiliated with Amazon. Essentially, they really don;t have any major repetition to lose.

I attempted to use this warranty in order to replace a faulty motherboard of my desktop. Below are some of the tribulations which ultimately forced me to purchase a new motherboard. I believe the comparable reliability of this review rests upon the fact that I (almost) underwent the full process, whereas the writers of some other reviews haven't.

First, the information and instructions are frustratingly manifold and inconsistent. The e-mail sent says, "Log into [...] locate contract and file claim online". Whether that was telling me to log into the website and consequently find a contract was unclear, but it didn't matter since there was none to be found. Then the "file claim online" portion seems reliable, but it was impossible for reasons upon which I will elaborate, because I took a step before these instructions, as per the -other- instructions in the e-mail.
In accordance with those, I registered my protection plan, filling out the necessary information. No further guidance was provided, and I wasted plenty of time clicking various links that all directed me to the same page after making me repeat the two confirmation numbers.
Assuming, then, that it was time to file a claim, I clicked the corresponding link on the homepage. I was asked to log in, and had to create an account, which I find unnecessary since there's already secure PINs and such. After logging in with my new account, I was presented with an empty list of protection plans, so I needed to create a new one. I put in the information of the one I already registered, as requested, and was brought to the page in which I viewed it. But, in contrast to what one might expect, that did not actually connect that registered plan with my account.
