The "From" box was a 300-2042 and the "To" box is a 500-2142. We were
led to beleive that things would be not quite twice as fast. Our
Inventory Inquiry went from an average of 11.2 sec to 11.5 seconds!
Everything else was pretty much the same timing wise.  

IBM installed the box themselves, but can't seem to get it to operate
any faster. They've been in several times with no luck.  SSA hasen't
really tried to fix it yet, but they have committed to getting it
working right.

I haven't placed blame fully on SSA, but I do think that both IBM and
SSA need to come together here and figure things out!!!
