On this one, it appears to me that Whittle is correct and you are the
exception with the happy EZserve experience recently. My experience was
great - at one time. Recently, I all but had to start some sort of
expensive, slow proceedings against EZserve to receive obvious warrenty
service on one of my 600Es. Over the years, I have had a number of
Thinkpads including 4 701Cs, 750, 760ED, 560, 560E, and several 600s. The
EZserve experience, starting about 2 years ago, is hostile, offensive,
unreasonable, incompetent and not very user friendly! The TPs are still
nice when they work.

What can I say. In the past two years I have a keyboard and a screen
replaced. No problem, no questions. In the last two months I've had a CD
and a battery replaced. No problem. No questions other then the normal tests
for the CD. They simply accepted my explanation of the battery problem and
shipped a new one. -- Maybe they just don't like you <grin>.
