    All extended warranties are a rip off. One for cars, electronics, and whatever. The underwriter pays out on less than 20% of the policies. A big money maker for Apple and a big money taker away for the consumer.

    First time I EVER bought any kind of extended warranty. With a new product, not wanting to wait to buy one, not sure what issues I might run into ...

    I purchased the Square Trade 3yr warranty for my 64 gb 3G WiFi; I know of others who have used Square Trade and have good results and I like that it covers accidents, like drops, spills; wish I had it for my iPod Touch when it went through the washer; after drying out for a week, it still works, just turns off when I turn the volume up, and I just turn it right back on and pick up where I left off.

    SquareTrade > AppleCare

    I had a friend with SquareTrade on her iPhone and she had a great experience with them for a phone she dropped in the sink. She got $449 in cash back from them. I would definitely recommend this as opposed to AppleCare, much better deal. Here is the link: http://www.squaretrade.com/pages/ipad-landing

    Was glad I bought Apple Care on my mac when the HD died in the second year. Service was great, but think I'm going to pass on the iPad. Anything that goes wrong with it should happen in the first year... and that's already covered by Apple.

    Wow I forgot about that...I bought it on my Gold Amex...thanks for the great insight. I orginally ordered mine with AppleCare, but then Apple told me that they were not offering it in Florida so they removed that from the order and then the week my iPad shipped I received a message from Apple stating that they are now covering in Florida and would like to know if I wanted to add the warranty to it....which I did.
