Positive Gigabyte UK RMA experience

Positive Gigabyte UK RMA experience
« on: June 08, 2011, 05:25:14 pm »
Hi all, we are all quick enough to go online & complain when Companies screw up & leave us hanging for weeks when we RMA stuff.  I just thought I'd let you guys know about my recent experience with Gigabyte UK regarding RMA'ing my GA-790XTA-UD4 motherboard due to many issues that effected system stability.  One of the minor issues was due to watercooling leak the top PCI slot was burnt out (not the reason I RMA'd, infact I didn't even mention this in my discussions with tech. support).

Basically once I had my RMA authorised, I sent the board back next day delivery, amazingly the board was repaired the day it arrived & was posted back that day.  2 days after I posted off the board it arrived back, STABLE, working as it should & they even replaced the PCI slot that I damaged myself.

I build/upgraded etc plenty of systems for friends, family & part-time as a business & in my experience any kind of RMA usually takes longer than a couple of days before the user receives their item back.

**Note for any Gigabyte reps. that come across this post, please forward this feedback back to the powers that be**

Even the mighty Corsair (perceived market leaders in customer care) took a total of 10 days to replace my faulty DDR3 RAM.

I really am VERY impressed,well done & keep up the good work.  (Not a fanboy, my HTPC has a ASUS MB in it & my graphics card is Sapphire)

Nice to see a positive post and a good experience of the RMA process.

Unlike you, I am a dedicated Gigabyte user and, touch wood, so far I have not needed to RMA any item but it's nice to know that should I ever need to it should be painless and easy to do.

Thanks for sharing this.

ps I have removed your duplicate post under the AMD section in an effort to keep the Forum tidy!
