Anyone have experience with mail-in iPod repair?

Smashed the screen on my 30GB, 2nd Gen Video iPod. Previous metafilter questions suggested However, is a bit cheaper. Can anyone shed any light on these two services?

I've never used ipodmods but iPodResQ is part of MacResQ, which has had an excellent reputation in the Mac community since they opened. I used them once in 1997ish and have had relatives use them twice more recently, always with great results.

Here is the saga of the iPod Mechanic, as told by consumer rights advocate website The Consumerist. The posts are in chronological order from end to beginning.

I've used ResQ for iBook stuff. I was pleased.

I used CPR Technology for my 4 Gen iPod. For a video ipod it's only $75 vs. $110 @ ipodmods or $120 @ ipodresq.

And if you live in the NYC area, you can even swing by their "offices."

I used ipodmods. They did everything they said they'd do, it cost about $40 and the ipod works like a charm.
