GoogleGuy says that PR gets dropped for expired domains.

If you're looking at the same data I am, I wouldn't bid over one tenth of that price. Buy it if you like the name or think the residual visitors from dangling links are worth it, but not if you're looking for the PageRank boost.
The smart money has already noticed some expired domains dropping out of DMOZ, and there's other signs out there for people to notice. I'll see if I can accelerate that PR drop for a batch of PR7 domains, as a favor to keep you from getting a bad deal. :)

I too would like to know how to get my PR up. It has dropped from 5 to 4. Any ideas. I still add link pages to my site, but I really do not think this does anything. Need advice

1. Anyone have experience using PRchecker, or similar type software?

2. Are they effective?

3. If so, any ideas how to benefit from them?

It's to bad that expired domains loose their PR. Can you imagine what kind of market there would be if they didn't?

Can someone clear this up for me, do expires domains completely lose their PR or do they just reduce. Is it worth persuing expired domains?
