Dear All

We are currently evaluating purchasing either an MTS Syntech or an Instron
4400 (Twin Power Screw) material testing system. The technical specs have
not swayed me one way or the other yet and so I was hoping for some
comments on the more intangible aspects i.e software quality, machine
quality and reliability, customer support etc. Comments on the technical
aspects of both machines would also be appreciated. Thanking you in
advance for your assistance.
