I do think that people should have to pay a registration fee. It costs a lot of money to run a company like Universal. R&D, help dest etc. They deserve to turn a profit. I also think Universal makes great machines. I am probably their biggest fan. So

To CS: If you "build" in this cost for telephone support on new and recond machines, because that's all we're talking about here since you are being paid for parts and field service, and the original purchaser sells the machine then they won't be ca

It is not just the rgistration fee. It is the fact that often after you register the machine you sre still denied a certian portion of service. UIC is very in check with their registration pricing. OEM's do however have a clause that says we can not

I think this licensing thing was a poor decision to begin with. I can understand the reasoning for GenRad to issue a software license, to protect their product against cloning. Why Universal followed could have been caused by the take over and the

Pansonic is Real good about support once you have registered a machine. But They are in serious violation of the law if you have a part number and want to buy a part. In the USA a OEM must sell you parts no questions asked as long as you have a part

I agree with Steve Huey, as a former Field Engineer and Asian Customer service manager living in Hong Kong for almost 10 years with little blue, there has been an incremental hit on all of the OEM's combined profits.They needed a strategy and some sc

Here's what ticks me off by the OEM's extorting registration fees out of customers and refusing to support the used equipment market. You won't get the OEM's to admit it but a large part of their profits are obtained by service and support includin

Steve Huey is a real MAN. "NO GENDER DISRIMINATION" I competed with him for a few years. He has integrity, smarts, a smile, and honesty. Ruthless none the less. I only dream of the days that UIC's anti competitive practices were those of the days of
