I agree that this would be helpful but IMHO think that it should be it's own forum subsection someplace.

I also think that all perspective RMA's should be pm'd to a mod or the Admin to be added to a locked sticky to not have to wade through a spam fest to find useful information. After all our time is much more valuable then that...isn't it? I know that I don't want to wade through 2 pages of spam to get to the next RMA detail.


Then have an open forum under the sticky to post their experience of said RMA giving forum users the ability to post at will...maybe a link within the sticky post to the persons regular forum post on his experience...that would make it easy and organized IMHO.

Just a suggestion...flame away.

Qwerty.

I can appreciate why you think that... but the search option makes this thread very useful. Its why there is a formula to this thread.

And making a locked thread of it would be even worse.

Also... when people post on this thread just to say they think its stupid, I consider that spam. If you don't want it crowded, don't crowd it.

Company Name: MSI
Product: K9a Platinum Am2 AMD580x 3200xfire Motherboard

Wait time: 3 Days total round trip
Details: Incredible! 3 hours after the tech dept. got it a replacement was on its way to me! Would recommend MSI to anyone as far as warranty/RMA goes. We all hate it when things go wrong but it makes it easier when the company takes care of its customers with no questions asked. I am stunned. I am writing on the new pc right now. It came well packaged with loads of protective stuff inside the box inside a brand new static bag with the MSI seal on it. The new board even smelt new...

I did RMA's after contacting them and getting the requset RMA numbers.

BFG for a 6600PCI sent them screenshot they okayed the RMA it went to the USA,got a new card in about 3 weeks.
These guys were great,they changed before a failure.
They didn't like the screenshot on boot either.
Cost about $24.00 approx. shipping to USA
Bought current card while waiting.

OCZ in Canada for a power supply. Sent it by fed ex.
They suggested a proper courier service.
About $23.00 approx.
Bought curent PS while waiting.

Got it back in about a 10 day turn around.
New unit factory sealed newer model

Western Digital in Canada 160 SATA drive 8mb cache.
Sent it in got another drive in about 11 days
Say "Factory Recertified" yellow stamp:sad:, though if memory services me right.
Shipping I forget still was worth it.

Antec in Canada P180 new HD rack mounts.
8 day turn around.
no charge.

Antec in Canada waiting on 900 case 'glass side top panel cracked they sent email. is coming in a few days.
says no charge.
note below.

CC where bought wouldn't swap panel. :sad:
Not really surpised at that.
Old days are gone.
Took the panel up to them,needed other stuff,
Left it in Car and Son told them about it
Wanted me to remove all the guts and take it back up to them(another trip) Only then they would give a case replacement.
No thats about 4 hours with driving.
Plus they had down to a couple stock over holidays so likely would sell out buy time I got there.
I know that one.
Let Antec deal with it.
As Above 900 case.


As an added comment.

Was it worth it?

Heck I wonder.

I in a couple cases you notice I went out and purchased new pieces till the "new" replacements arrived.

which when they arrived I sold them.

I have often mused that maybe they should lower the price and just give you say 30 to 90 days full exchange.
then you go and buy again?
I dunno-+

Tyreman, try to follow the format to make it searchable. Glad it went well for those RMAs though.

This is a placeholder:

Date purchased: 1 year ago
Date RMAed: December 28th, 2007
Where it was sent to: USA/California
Ease of RMA: 8
Any extra fees?: No
Wait time: About a month
Details: Had to clarify with the RMA support about what was going on which was kinda stupid. It took an extra week to process. They were slow to ship and confirm it was broken. I was hoping for faster delivery.

Date RMAed: February 2008
Where it was sent to: United States, Illinois, Lake Forest
Ease of RMA: 10
Any extra fees?: 1-way shipping cost ($15)
Wait time: Close to 10 days
Details: My 7900GT had developed horrible artifacting in 3D and 2D applications, so I called in for an RMA number. Got a pleasant English speaking chap with no strange accent. He got me to reboot to the BIOS to check card voltages, then he OK'd the RMA. Got the return package after a couple weeks, opened it up to find a brand new 8800 GTS 512MB card, and a BFG shirt. :biggrin:
