re: Agilent increases warranty on all test instruments

I'm pleased by the extended warranties - but also by an important corollary: the instruments will continue to be supported for an extended period of time. It is always frustrating when an instrument continues to work - but some trivial support item is no longer available.

Do you find that extended warranties are actually helpful? How often do you need warranty service?

Every laptop computer that I've owned his required significant repairs under their extended warranty - that feature has been much appreciated. In laboratory instruments, the extended warranty has not helped me personally - BUT I've often encountered out of life issues. Having a longer support period would be appreciated.
