3D Television Adds New Depth to Home Insurance

MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 28, 2009) - As Samsung's 3D plasma TV goes on sale and Optoma prepares to launch a 3D projector in time for Christmas, Swinton is warning homeowners to check that their home insurance provides adequate cover.

Although the average cost of televisions has dropped considerably over recent years, new technology is always premium priced. Swinton, the UK's leading provider of home insurance, is warning that expensive televisions may require additional cover, particularly to protect them for accidental damage.

Swinton lists the top five must-have gadgets as:

1. Ipod

2. Flat screen TV

3. Blue Ray player

4. Laptop

5. Sat Nav

Steve Chelton, Insurer Development Manager for Swinton, said: "A few years ago high definition television was the must-have item and was hailed as the biggest leap in television technology since the introduction of colour. Many people splashed huge amounts of money for some pretty expensive television sets.

"We anticipate that gadget lovers will be rushing out to purchase the latest 3D technology, regardless of the cost. Homeowners need to be careful when buy expensive electronic items that their home insurance provides adequate cover."
