    I would like to think I am going to keep my new iPad for more than a year, but probably won't as I only had the first iPad, and iPad 2 until the next model came out. I am really going to try and keep this for 2 years so I am now considering a warranty. I have heard horrible things about BB's program so I will stay away from them, however I thought I had heard good things about SquareTrade. Anyone have any personal experience with them? Or is it best to get AppleCare+?

    Direct from Apple will always be best. Just get Applecare+ and stop worrying about it.

    Or, if you can't/won't do that, then use the search button, there are tons of threads on this topic already.

    I don't own a SquareTrade policy but from what I understand their maximum liability is the value of your iPad, so, for example, if you have $499 of repairs on a $499 iPad then coverage ends regardless of how much time is left in your purchased warranty period. May not be a deal-breaker but relevant.

    They'll do a replacement in this case. Either send you a check for the value or a refurbished iPad. Plus, SquareTrade handles loss and theft.
