I am in the market for a used HP-3458A and, in researching past messages, I
came across an interesting question:

If Agilent will fix everything, bring it up to specs, and calibrate it no
matter what's wrong with it for $2200, then why would I spend $5000-6000 or
more for one that is in good shape - even if calibrated? Just grab the first
bargain that comes along for $1500-3000, send it straight to Agilent and be
money ahead. Seems the better course of action to me if that price is
accurate - do they really offer this service?
I could not find an answer to this question but it does beg the question.
Does nayone have an answer as to why not buy the cheapest unit and send it
in for repair?
