    Anyone have any input on the extended warranties.

    Grimco was nice enough to email us and remind us that our warranty is up next month. And for a gracious $2529 we can extend next day, parts and labor service for 1 year.

    Well I had to call HP yesterday about an issue with our L25500 and the first lady I spoke to asked to send out their extended warranty info. Got that information in and they ask $2403 for next day, parts and labor for two years.

    Any idea what Grimco is doing?

    Having sex with your checkbook? Have HP send you a quote in writing.

    Found out the price difference. Mind you they had my serial number and they informed me of my expiration date, but the HP price I was quoted was only for a new machine. Apparently buying the extended warranty anytime after its newly installed requires a much larger payout for the warranties.

    Yes, I got that quote, but not from Grimco. I was sent those prices after the HP Tech helped me with replacing all my heads and adding the new firmware update. I was pretty shocked at the rates. Anyhow, I don't plan to purchase that! LOL.

    Good News

    When I called HP yesterday (Technical) I asked about the prices they had e-mailed me on extending the warranty. Apparently, the high prices are for having a Tech come out to service your machine on the spot.

    They do have a $399.00/per year (phone assistance only) contract you can sign up for, as long as you do it at least 3 months before your first year on your new machine is up. They told me about that when I asked if there is anything else besides the one I'm not going to buy. :)

    I plan to do this, I've had to rely on their Technical help and they are very good when you call, so I think it is worth doing. They explained that this $399.00 plan is renewable on a yearly basis. Again, it's assistance over the phone, and if you need parts, you pay for those and install yourself.
