    Square trade insurance or not needed ? what did you do

    I got the transformer book for 349$ now should I pay the 78$ to get the square trade insurance for any cracks that might happen or is the transformer strong enough to take a drop without problem. I know the Asus has a insurance that will be for one claim in the first year but not sure if they would really cover a crack in the screen. Let me know what your thoughts are ... thanks so much

    I've never used square trade, and am curious also.

    some say ST is good. But to spend 25% of the purchase price for the device does not sound appealing.
    besides Asus gives you one year free ADP.

    Don't bet on getting the ADP from Asus. They exclude the following retailers for some reason:
    BestBuy USA (In-store and Online)
    Office Max (In-store and Online)
    Staples USA (In-store and Online)
    Sears (In-store and Online)
    Costco Wholesale (In-store and Online)
    Office Depot (In-store and Online)
    Wal-Mart (In-Store and Online)
    Online Auction sites or Peer-to-Peer sales

    Their ignoring my request as to why the exclusions and my request for a list of authorized major retailers. Although, they specifically told me to check with Best But as to why they're excluded.

    Well, I got my 64GB from MS Store and had no problems registering for ADP.

    Did I mention that I got it for $299?

    I generally don't buy these things, but considering what a good deal my T100 was (and some of the stories I've heard about Asus warranty repairs) I figured why not? SquareTrade is actually supposed to be one of the best as far as customer satisfaction. If you plan to keep your tablet for more than a year, I'd do it, just for peace of mind. I bought my T100 at Wal-Mart for $379 and i think i paid $54 for their extended two year warranty that includes accidental damage coverage with no deductible IIRC.

Good gravy I REALLY want to be wrong about this!
    I hope I am not gonna need ADP. I am pretty careful with my toys.

    Hope with the free one year and getting a case I will be fine. Just hope amazon is in the list that they will cover.
