However, I've heard good things about Squaretrade and am thinking of getting one through them simply because their warranty covers more (drops, spills, etc) whereas AppleCare+ only handles hardware/software issues and two replacements due to drops and the like. What I think it boils down to me for me is the fact that if I were to get one through Squaretrade, it wouldn't be local so I couldn't just take it down and get it looked at. They look to be about the same price wise, but I can get a three-year warranty for $129 through Squaretrade where AppleCare+ only covers you for two for $99. A two-year warranty is also $99 on Squaretrade.
Has anyone ever used Squaretrade? If you had to file a claim, was it a quick and easy process?
