upgrading 18-105 to 18-200

I've had a D90 with 18-105 lens for about 3 years and I've really loved it but I keep thinking I'd like a little more reach. I don't want a 2 lens solution, though. I'd like to hear the opinions of anyone else that has bought the Nikon 18-200 after having the 18-105. Was it worth the expense? I had tried the Sigma 18-250 and I really liked the extra range but it had some issues where the auto focus would lock up which did not inspire confidence. The reality is, I don't need the extra focal length that often, but sometimes it seems like it would be nice.

BH Photo has refurbished lenses at a good price (relatively). Any experience buying refurbished?

I appreciate any opinions.
