2.0 out of 5 stars Bulbs not covered for rear-projection TV, July 2, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: SquareTrade 4-Year TV Protection Plan ($1000-$1250) (Electronics)
Be careful to read the fine prints before you buy... I bought this warranty for my new Mitsubishi 73" rear projection TV, thinking it'll cover the bulb if it burns out after a few years. After purchasing, I got a copy of the contract and read the fine prints, and sure enough, it states that the bulb is not covered. And for plasma tv's, burn-in is not covered. Lots of items in the "what's not covered" section. The problem is you don't get to see it when you purchase the warranty, so it's a big surprise after you buy it. Doesn't seem right, does it?

Hi Ivan Lai,

Bulbs are considered replaceable parts and that's the reason we don't cover them. At SquareTrade we attempt to be upfront about everything. You will find a copy of the contract on our website. You can also always call us at 1-877-WARRANTY and our reps would be more than happy to explain the entire policy as well as answer any questions that you may have.

Hope this help.

Regards,
Priya S.,
SquareTrade

"... thinking it'll cover the bulb if it burns out after a few years". This indicates that the person wanted to cover for the bulb which would obviously burn out after some life span. I guess this is not what warranties cover.
