RAM RMA Question

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
If you were to buy a new RAM kit on Ebay that has a lifetime warranty, can you still RMA it?

Like for instance there is G.Skill RAM on Ebay that is new in the box and has a lifetime warranty. I was looking at the RMA form from G.Skill and it asks for an original place of purchase. Now I know if I put Ebay or something, they probably wont take the RMA. I don't see anywhere though that the lifetime warranty is transferable.

What do you mean? What I am saying is that I don't think that G.Skill will honor the warranty on it because I was not the original owner. I bought it from someone else first.

It says the seller accepts returns, but only for 7 days. So it really wouldn't help me in the long run if my RAM dies and I have to return it to G.Skill directly and they don't take it.

Right,So I would buy it somewhere else,because u probally would have a hard time RMAing it.

But its so much cheaper. Newegg has the kit for $105, this kit is $87 + $8 shipping, and I get 25% off for Microsoft Cashback. So, in total it would only be $73.25.

Well, I sent them an email to see if that will do anything. I cant register on their forum because I get no activation email... so I am stuck.

So, when you guys buy stuff from people over OCN, or on Ebay, or even Craigslist, and you have to RMA it... what do you tell the company? I really need to find out soon because I know somebody is going to snatch this up.

Whenever I sell something (ebay or otherwise) that is still under warranty, I work out with the buyer how they want to handle it. Either I give them a copy of the receipt with original date/location of purchase and they handle returns, or we agree that if the item fails, they send it back to me, I file for RMA, and ship at their expense. The second way is more expensive to the buyer (shipping in three directions instead of one) but is much easier to get the product replaced.
