I had only owned two 27" inch monitors, one Viewsonic VA2702W and this one (Dell 2740L). I never experienced any issues with the Viewsonic while I owned it.
 
My new Dell monitor came with an 1 year warranty as stated on the retail website where I purchased it.
 
I've read the positive reviews, but I'm still wondering what is the expected reliability of this particular item (if anyone knows) so I can decide if buying a SquareTrade 3-year warranty is worth an extra $24.49?

I would say yes...an extra 2-3 years!...and I'm sure it's reliable but I would get it just to be sure.

Damn, that's cheap for a 3 year extended! Though I've never had anything ever go wrong with my monitors so personally I never would but if it's already quite expensive than why not for a bit more.

I've never had a monitor go bad on me before, so from my experience it probably wouldn't be worth it unless you got the monitor really cheap and the price of the warranty would still make it a deal.

Cheap warranty expansion offer. If I were you I would have gone for it. :)
