    iPad insurance

    You should look carefully at what is covered and what the service levels are. How long would you be without your iPad. For example in the UK home insurers often offer gadget insurance as an addon but are not expert in the gadget claims process. By comparison someone like iPad Insurance Cover have a 48 hour turnaround.

    In Florida homeowners insurance is a nightmare. I don't want to deal with them unless it's a real emergency so I just got the 3 year squaretrade insurance and I'm covered for anything.

    Me too. Since it covers accidental damage (like drops) I don't feel I have to baby my iPad. I also like the fact that you can transfer it or cancel and get a pro-rated refund.

    That is what I did too--$21 a year, no deductible, and quick payment. Covers any damage or loss.

    iPad to an existing insurance policy is often considerably less expensive than other solutions, but can be complicated.

    For those that feel they might be at significant risk, such as having four small children playing with your iPad, or using it in the swimming pool, I would advise doing a lil research on your homeowners company versus an apple or third party insurer specializing in gadgets.

    Having gone both routes in the past, for me, my homeowners company was kind of complicated to deal with compared to the other guys. Their were a lot more restrictions in the fine print, and more paperwork to go through, longer waiting period, things like that. All companies are different, that's just been my experience.

    I guess I need to go for this Ensquared iPad insurance gives you 2 year protection against Accidental Damage including Drops and Spills plus Extended Warranty for only $94.99, $50 deductible, and 3 x $1000 claim value per claim. Ensquared insures all iPad devices up to 90 days old

    I took out an insurance for my iPad 1 when I bought it. It got killed a couple of weeks ago. But the good thing is I'm writing here now with my iPad 2!!!! Cost me 100 euros as my smashed iPad 1 got me 499 euros back :)
