I purchased a portable digital audio player. Just under $40… obviously not intended to pass it down from one generation to the next. Just the same, I expected it last at least a couple years. (I try to take care of my stuff.) I decided to spend a few bucks more and have a GUARANTEE that it would last 3 years. Asurion fit the bill.

Alas – the audio player “gave up the ghost” about 7 months into my ownership experience. It worked in the morning… in the afternoon I pushed the power button – NOTHING. I tried charging it… pushed the “reset” button… exchanged a couple emails with their so-called tech support people. It quickly became apparent that its useful life was over.

I tried to enter a claim online… the brand name of the player was obscure enough that it wasn’t on the list. So I called the toll-free number and spoke with a very informed and helpful Asurion agent. In five minutes we had made arrangements for a refund. She emailed me a prepaid return label, to send the defective player back, and less than 24 hours later I had a full refund in the form of “Amazon credit” for the purchase amount. So I was out 4 bucks (the cost of the Asurion) rather than 40.

I’d do it again in a heartbeat – in fact, I did! I also purchased a 3-year plan to cover my digital camera, for about 1/10 the cost of the camera. Peace of mind is worth something, and I have confidence in the Asurion product at this point.

I figured it was worth the 4 bucks because I bought a cheap head unit. The product arrived defective, so I went through all the forms only to be told that it’s been too soon since purchase and that I should contact Amazon. The effective date on the policy claims that “the date of delivery” is when protection starts. I love it when I’m scammed. So many people lose their info or forget they bought they even bought this so you’d think they’ve made enough money to actually fulfill a claim.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can I also get a couple of spare batteries, and another charger for this unit, if I buy one? Added costs, and shipping of course.
Answer: Yes you can get spare batteries and an extra charger. It’s a good idea to have the extra battery at least.

How long is the actual range?
Answer:

Depends largely on what you are licensed for. If amateur licensed, you can use repeaters and extend range 200 miles. Another huge factor is the antenna. For example, MURS requires no license, but is limited to 2W. If you add highly directional antennas on each end, depending on terrain, you can make 40 miles or mor??

Can it transmit on vhf and at the same time receive on uhf..?
Answer:

Simultaneously? No. But you can split reception (will only sound on the first signal it receives of course). For example, two of the repeaters I listen on… one is 2m (VHF), the other is on 70cm (UHF), and I can choose which I’m TXing on using the PTT switch (upper part of the button is upper set frequency, lower is ??
