Does anyone have an opinion on home warranties?

I know I had one when I first bought my house. That lasted for one year. I did not renew.
In the past year I had a two leaks in my plumbing. I'm assuming this would have been covered in a home warranty. The plumber was not cheap and was definitely more expensive than the one year of warranty from American Home Warranty ($444/year).
Do most people have home warranties? Is it worth the price? On a handiness scale of 10, I would rate myself a 6.
