 Has anyone purchased the extended warranties offered by HRO and GigaParts?

 Any experience with claims?

 Thanks,

Most extended warrenties are a waist of money. Check Consumer Reports Magazine. Most Ham Transceivers are very reliable, and also if you pay with a credit card, most offer extended warrenties for free. The only time an extended warrentee is recommended is if the item you are buying has a bad reputation for reliability, and why would you want an item like that.

Just my opinion,

In my humble opinion, extended warranties are similar to wagers:  You are putting money down to bet that something will go wrong with the item, and the seller of the extended warranty is betting that nothing will go wrong with it!  If extended warranties really benefitted the purchaser, why would the seller offer them?  The reason is that the numbers are in the seller's favor...   73, Phil, WA7URV
