I think the tradeoff is getting an RMA(warranty) vs fixing it yourself
(on your own).
It is pretty hard for a manufacturer to accept an RMA on a device that
can be opened up and the majority of the guts replaced like that. There
is too much room for fraud.
I had about 15 TT EZ Bridges, and they were really bad as far as
reliability goes. Probably lost 30% within the first six months. They
were also quite a bit more expensive to deploy than the Tranzeos due to
the extra labor and parts involved. I like having one radio that you
send with and installer and has everything.

open up and just replace the guts that have gone bad, but other than
that I can't really think of a better way to handle it.
And this is the reason I didn't go back to Tranzeo.
I used them before smart bridges and when it was time to change, not
having access to the card was the reason I did not buy Tranzeo.
I have had cards go bad with the TT ez Bridges, but swapping out the
card was easy and inexpensive as compared to sending the entire unit
