Gigabyte warranty?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm going to be contacting the seller again but are gigabyte motherboards covered under warranty if they are purchased new from ebay?
post #2 of 12
I would assume if the mob is registered with gigabyte then you should be fine. I'm kinda iffy when buying hardware from ebay no matter the price. My local computer shop only sells them like 1% more with no shipping and can also buy extended warranty with them.

i dont like this. What if the boards sit on the shelf somewhere for 6 months. You automatically short your warranty by 6 months? Thats sloppy and shady warranty practice if this is the case.

I think by law the warranty would have to be from time of purchase...Correct?

I rather have that than buying a 2nd hand EVGA board with no warranty.

I dont follow. We are comparing buying a brand new board vs a used board?

Yes, I agree, date of manufacture seems to kill some of your warranty time IMO, but then it makes the unit more appealing for some in second hand sales, since its not tied to original owner purchase with receipt.

Its very unlikely to have a product sit on the shelf for 6 months, but I see what you are getting at.

From my personal experience companies that go by serial give a 30-90day grace period on top of the manufacture date to account for the time the product was in transit, sat unsold @ the store, etc. On the other hand, other companies also will honor the date on your invoice in lieu of the manufacture date (I've had this done happen w/ Lenovo notebooks).
