HP has always been known for creating stylish, reliable laptops with great processors. There’s nothing that’s not nice about an HP laptop and that’s one reason why you must protect your HP laptop with a good laptop warranty plan. To make sure that the laptop is safe and works for a longer time, it’s important to protect it with a good laptop warranty plan that starts immediately after the expiry of the manufacturer’s warranty. If you’re planning to buy an HP laptop or recently purchased one, here are two protection plans for you to choose from…
HP Warranty Plans
When we say laptop warranty, we mean a protection plan for your laptop. Extended Warranty is the best plan you can opt for. This covers all the hardware defects that arise after the warranty period. The HP extended warranty plan can either be purchased with the laptop or anytime within a year of buying the HP laptop. The plan is available for a maximum of 3 years, after the expiry of the original warranty period. If you’re using a mid-segment HP laptop within Rs 20,000, you have the option of buying the 1 Year HP Extended Warranty plan for Rs 1,467 or the 3 years HP Extended Warranty plan for Rs 5,744 (Prices vary depending on the price of the laptop). This laptop warranty plan starts as soon as the manufacturer’s warranty period expires.
Apart from Extended Warranty, HP also offers the 1 Year Accidental Damage Protection plan. This plan gives you the peace of mind to know that your investment is protected from the hassles of unexpected repairs and expenses. It covers all the structural damage caused to your laptop by accidental drops, spills, electrical surges or failure of the screen. The HP 1 Year Accidental Damage Protection plan needs to be purchased anytime within a year of buying the laptop and costs Rs 2,287 for laptops within the Rs 20,000 range. HP offers at-home service called the Onsite Warranty when your laptop needs repair during the plan period. You just need to raise a service request and HP sends a professional technician home from the HP service center to repair the laptop. The at-home service is inclusive of the plan price.
HP also gives you service assurance and offers cashless service for both the plans. So you just need to pay once, at the time of buying the plan. But in case, any part of the laptop needs to be replaced and if it exceeds the cost of the device, you will need to spend from your pocket.
OnsiteGo Laptop Warranty Plans
OnsiteGo also has suitable plans for your laptop: OnsiteGo Extended Warranty and OnsiteGo Damage Protection plan. The OnsiteGo Extended Warranty plan is similar to the HP Extended Warranty plan in terms of coverage. But one plus point with the OnsiteGo laptop warranty plan is that it can be purchased for a maximum of 4 years, apart from the 1 year manufacturer’s warranty. The plan starts from as low as Rs 1,399, depending on the price of the laptop. The OnsiteGo 1 Year Spills & Drops Protection Plan / Damage Protection Plan on the other hand, covers both, accidental as well as incidental damage and starts from Rs 1,999, depending on the price of the laptop.
The OnsiteGo plans can be purchased with the laptop or anytime within the manufacturer’s warranty period (1 year). It starts immediately after the expiry of the manufacturer’s warranty. Another advantage with the OnsiteGo plan is its plan price, which is more economical as compared to the HP plan (mentioned above). OnsiteGo also offers hassle-free service with free pick, repair and drop. All the repairs for HP laptops are done at HP service centers only. So you need not worry about going to the HP service center when your laptop needs repair.
We’d conclude by saying, it’s a wise idea to buy the OnsiteGo 4 Years Extended Warranty plan. It costs Rs 4,899 for a laptop within the Rs 20,000 range, while the HP 3 years Extended Warranty costs Rs 5,744.
