Just purchased this to go with my new Samsung, blu-ray, 3D, wi-fi internet-ready DVD player. Have not used it, but I used to work for Walmart, and I'm totally trusting in their reputation for good customer return service, as this is a plan with Walmart and NOT a third-party insurance company. Extended Service insurance companies go out of business all the time, and so there is a big risk in buying a plan from someone other than the actual retailer or the manufacturer of the item. The price is very reasonable: just a little over 10% of the purchase price. I've seen this type of plan on places such as Amazon for upwards of 20% of purchase price. TWO big reasons for anyone to consider buying this to go along with a similar product: 1. If the item you are buying has moving parts (such as a disc player) then the risk is greater that it will break down. Items without moving parts (such as receivers/amplifiers) are not as great a risk to break down. 2. The newer, multi-function units such as this run a greater risk of SOME feature malfunctioning. For instance, the disc player might continue to operate, but the wi-fi might break down. Or, it might lose it's ability to read just the 3D discs. I work with electronics professionally as a musician/singer-songwriter, and this plan simply made great sense to me.
