    If it were desktop computer, I would probably not purchase an extended warranty, but for notebook computers, iPod Touch, flat screen display, I wouldn't hesitate to buy this extended coverage, especially when it's 30% cheaper than MSRP. what bargain!

    I have owned several PowerBooks/iBooks and have purchased applecare for all of them (in comparison, haven't bought AppleCare for desktop). If you have even one repair on one of these things out of warranty, you will make up your purchase price. and for items that have little ventilation/heat sinking capabilities (laptops, iPod Touch, etc), risk of something going bad within 3years is pretty high. I have had to get my Powerbook repaired three times (bad optical drive, bad keyboard buttons, etc), iBook once (case cracking, dead HDD), iPod Touch twice due to bad battery life and intermittent power, and the display repaired (power mangement unit died). Every time either Apple would repair it, or replace the unit with either new or refurbished unit, no questions asked (unless there is obvious signs of abuse). You can take it to any Apple Store, or call their 1800 number and have them send you a shipping box. Turn around is typically 3-4 days (!!) from the time you call them and have your part back in your hands.

    Included in the hardware warranty is if you have any Apple OS issues or Apple software install/operation issues during the warranty period, you can get free service via phone to help you fix the problem. Best service ever.

    I now have 3 fairly new apple products and thought I'd better get it t if I need help on something one day. So far I've been able take care of questions on my own. I think that for a laptop you might need more help than with the other products. It's a good three years and BH takes out a bit of the sting with their better price.

    Lower price w/o tax rocks

    Will I ever use it.....?

          Everyone has their own opinion regarding extended warranties. Mine is this one is totally worth the cost just to have access to the Apple support techs. Given this is an Apple product, I expect not to have any problems with the computer hardware, (one never knows though); but as new MAC users my wife and I have LOTS of questions regarding the applications. The techs could not be more friendly, nor more helpful and we have called them a bunch of times. And, they are all located right here in the US!

          I am also very pleased with B & H. Extensive product selection, great prices, and wonderful service. I couldn't be happier with the whole experience!!

                This was the best value I could find. Registering the applecare protection plan was easy once it arrived. I registered online through the apple website. Got a confirmation email the same day. I highly recommend B&H Photo to anyone looking for the best price and value. I've never been disappointed.

                    I usually go with SquareTrade for extended protection plans, but B&H's price on AppleCare was just too good.

                    Being able to take it to a local Mac Store is also a really big plus

                    Hard to give it 5 starts without having to get the computer repaired and test that (but I hear good things).

                                              I've been building and maintaining my home computers, laptops for the past two decades and little did i know when I got my first MacBook Pro Retina 15". As soon as I received it I realized that fixing anything HW related on that machine was slightly beyond the DIY electronics enthusiast capabilities. My suspicions were reaffirmed right away when I encountered "LCD image retention" issue and I had Apple store replace entire flip on my 2 months old MacBook. I started shopping for the AppleCare Protection Plan right away and learned pretty quickly that it's a much more cost effective option to buy it outside of the Apple store. B&H Photo Video came to the rescue. Not only they offered free shipment/tax option, but the product equates in its quality and reliability anything that you would get straight from Apple, i.e. sealed retail box, instructions etc. Activating the plan was a breeze and now I have a peace of mind for another 2.5 years. Highly recommended purchase!

                                                  Hard to beat, no, IMPOSSIBLE to beat this price. I even had [@] employee pricing and could not get a better price than B&H. Perfect. I'll be buying ALL my future AppleCare products here. Kudos !!!

                                                      Genuine AppleCare product. Code number worked perfectly for my MacBook Pro Retina 15". Comes with full box, papers, everything.[$] cheaper than on Amazon or the Apple website.

                                                            Just registered my Applecare Protection Plan, purchased from B&H, for a new MacBook Pro. But how do I review this 'product' when I've not used it? The Plan only kicks in after the factory warranty expires -- in about a year, and can only be used if and when the product under coverage fails.

                                                            What I can say is. if you purchase a new Apple product, and wish to extend its accompanying warranty -- in this case -- an additional 2 yrs for computers, then do buy from B&H, as they have the best price.

                                                                      I typically do not buy extended warranties, but I have always purchased AppleCare whenever I have bought an Apple laptop and have always found that it is worth the money, at least for laptops. Apple support is generally very helpful. Recommended.
