Breakdown cover for Dell PC

Hope this question in in the right place!

I have an Intel core i7 2600s 2.8ghz Inspriron One all in one PC, 8 gig memory one, terabyte Hard drive,it is under warranty until Nov this year but it has already been back to Dell twice for repair, first time they replaced mainboard second time it was a fan as PC was running hot.

Yesterday Dell have phoned and offered me 3 yrs Next day business breakdown policy for £165 (I thought it not a bad price for 3 year cover)My question is is it a good deal or does anyone know of a better one?

I have my doubts, sometimes, about Dell's competence, but you can't fault the standard of service, on their "premium" plans. If you need it, for business, where time is money, I would say it's a no-brainer, at that price.

Check the T&C's. Many do not cover, so called, 'fair' Wear & Tear

The reason for my comments, on Dell, was that I had an issue with intermittent wi-fi. It took half a dozen phone calls, back and forth, for them to decide I needed a new wi-fi adaptor, which was a bit poor, but having decided it needed a new part, about 6pm, one day, there was someone, on my doorstep, with the bit, about 10am, the following day, which I thought was pretty brilliant.

Just over £1 a week is an excellent price for 'next day' breakdown cover. Before taking the plunge however, I would want to be sure I knew what is covered and what isn't.
