Would you buy extended warranty for your television?

I just wonder how many of you when you shop for a new television, like the 42 inch or 55 - inch of LCD, or LED television, would you consider purchase their extended warranty? It seems to me that is unnecessary, as many of my friends advised me to do so. Even when you come to the cash register, they try to persuade you to sign up those warranty deal, it seems useless. Because most television and electronic products are more reliable today. And after 6 months or 1 year, those electronic products price will drop significantly. So, those extended warranty just not worth what you are paying. What do you think?

There are some items I will put warranty on but not a TV, as they have so many hidden stipulations that I do not feel it is worth paying a warranty for. When you need repairing assistance they will come up with 101 reasons why it is not covered. So I do not fall for the warranty bit too quickly, as most stores too will allow you 30 days to add it later. This way I can be familiar with my TV and know more about it before I make a decision. So far have never put warranty on any TV's and have had quite a bit of luck with the ones I have owned.

I have never bothered with this sort of thing, I was told that most things these days most things are basically unfixable, best to just throw them out and buy new so I am happy to get a few years of service from things and then buy new.
