I think this is fantastic.

It shows our commitment to the end-user, we rather have a long term relationship with our users, than just offer a quick short-term solution.
It also shows that GIGABYTE is very confident about the product quality.
Besides, this is a FREE extended warranty program for the entire UK!

Brilliant.

I live in N Ireland.

Does this mean that I do NOT qualify for this Extended Warranty even though N Ireland is part of the UK?

I have just purchased a Gigabyte GA P55 UD5 board.

Thanks.

My friend, in that case, of course you will be included - but only for N. Ireland, unfortunately we can not cover S. Ireland.
So wellcome on board   ;D

Many thanks for getting back to me, good to know that NI is included.

However, you might want to change:

After getting my P55-UD4 I was pleasantly surprised to find this.
The boards been running great and I hope that it will continue to do so - but the extra peace of mind is always appreciated from a company with faith in their products.

I got the same as Landatech.
No hint of anything to do with the extra warranty - still 3 years is decent. The extra year would just be nice.

Hi Landatec and MindLESS

This is just standard auto-reply by our RMA system, so don't worry. You will receive the certificates.
ZX-S & C64 are still my favourites ;-)

Just recv and email from Returns@gb-tec.co.uk regarding the extended warranty that I claimed for. "It is now under process and you will informed further" so it looks as though it does all happen via the returns site, just takes some time for them to process it all.

Will post when more activity takes place.

Hi,

Just wondering how long it takes to get the certificate? I sent an email off on 30/9/09 and got the same automated reply as Landatec but I haven't heard anything since about it being processed.
