    I figure a Square Trade 2 year warranty with drop insurance should be fine, but it's only $15 for the 3rd year. :bigthink:

    My quandary is that I think it's 75% this fucker's gonna be dropped and needing repair within the first year, and quite possibly the first 6 months (in which case I've pretty-much wasted $35 on year 2 and 3).

    It's a Christmas gift though, and he's a good kid; he gets one really good present from me for fun, but then mostly shit he needs, so I have to make sure it stays around. Mark my words, though, it'll be one of his little goofball friends that breaks it, as they don't GAF about anything that doesn't belong to them. Fuckers.

    Is 10 too young for a Nexus 7? I need to get a case...anyone have a New Nexus 7 case they've liked?

    I've dropped my iPhone a million times. No damage. I see people with shattered screens on all phones and I wonder what in the fuck they are doing to those phones.

    Well, this is a tablet, and a 10 yo kid...I can tell you I pretty much know how this thing's going to get abused; it'll be worse than the 3DS fiasco.

    Oh shit. That's even worse than just a phone. It's going to be used as a place mat and a shield.

    I got my now 14 year old son a tablet two years ago, with a Squaretrade warranty. I gave it to him on Christmas Day, and that was the last time I ever saw it. I don't think he liked it that much, so he probably traded it to one of his friends for a video game. Either that, or he broke it and didn't want to tell me even though I'd added the warranty.

    Got both the boy's some Skull Candy Titan ear bud's from Best Buy- $8 warranty for a free replacement - for two years from purchase date.

    I only bought the warranty on one pair - and between the both of them they have gotten 12/14+ free replacements.


    Anything from being blown out, to a kitten eating the chord to stepping on them on the wooden/tile floors. ect...

    It took me about 15 months to break mine...put it in a book bag, not checking to see if it was in it's case properly...

    Dropped the bag when I got home from work - when I went to use the pad, the screen had a lovely spiderweb crack in it...derp.
