Found Legalese: "As Is"

Like it? 
[This is a piece of actual legalese, discovered in the midst of an online-buying transaction. The names of the corporations involved have been altered to avoid embarrassment/me being sued. Scroll down to get The Gist.]

We do not make, and hereby disclaim, any representations or warranties regarding the service, the ________ and the products and services offered through the ________ or any portion thereof, express, implied or statutory, including (without limitation) implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, noninfringement of third party rights, or any warranties arising by course of dealing or custom of trade.
