"Ordering d7100 - add insurance or not?"


Knoxville, US
          

I am planning to order a D7100 from either B&H or Adorama in the next week or so. Does anyone have any opinions regarding the "drop and spill" insurance from B&H OR the Mack extended warranty from Adorama. ( they also have a Nikon extended warranty too).

I am not sure what the are the differences between the two extra plans and if any of them are worth the extra cost.

Thanks.

Allan

Never heard of the "drop and spill" insurance but I've had real good luck with Mack.
I used to hear bad reports about Mack, but now many are suggesting that they are better than Nikon Service.
I've only had to use them several times.
Once they sent the camera to Nikon for something they could not fix and did not charge me extra.
The prices for Mack warrantees very greatly, so it pays to shop.

It's pretty cheap to add a rider to your home owners or renters policy. Will cover drops, spills and theft and cheaper that the other policies.

Thanks - but in the long run it can be more expensive - most homeowners insurance companies have been either raising rates or not renewing policies on people that have more then 2 claims in a 3-4 year period. No matter what the claim was for - hail damage to your roof is the same as replacing a watch or camera. Both count as claims against you. Even if it was not your fault.

Insurance is all a gamble anyway. Another thing to consider is that I doubt the MACK or drop and spill will cover theft if that matters to you.

Good point.

Thanks - theft is probably more a concern then drop and spills.
