I am a customer of MSE as is my sister.  Let me (lest I damn with faint
priase) say that they have bent over backwards to help me every time I
had a problem.  They are honest and sincere but not technically experienced
enough to handle anything beyond vanilla MS-DOS.  Further, they can't fix
something they assembled wrong.  I want to repeat that they are honest and
sincere, just not versed in anything beyond DOS cloneware.  They stood
behind everything they sold me to the extent they were capable.  I also had
some communications difficulties with them.  It was embarrassing to each
of us when after asking for the fourth repeat I figured out he was saying
"Four megabytes".  In the cases where the MSE folks just couldn't handle it,
I was sold something else (at a fair price) or referred to their suppliers
where I was able to get results.  If you're right there and can go see them
on a regular basis, they're good people.  From a distance I wouldn't deal
with them on a bet.

That's where my sister and I have gotten the best information.
