Subject: Unauthorized ViewSonic LCDs Ineligible for Service and Support


Dear Reseller Partner,

As a valued ViewSonic customer, we are contacting you today to advise you that ViewSonic has recently become aware that there are presently two 19†LCD displays being sold in Canada that look like legitimate ViewSonic product, but are not authorized for sale by ViewSonic in North America. The specific models are the VE902m and the VA912 silver. These products are identical in packaging to the ViewSonic product packaging, include the ViewSonic Wizard software, and bear the ViewSonic name on the product.

However, because this product is not authorized by ViewSonic, the serial numbers on this product are not valid ViewSonic serial numbers and is therefore ineligible for any after sales support, including end user warranty. ViewSonic assumes no liability for this product, so any purchase or resale of the product is at your own risk.

The VE902m is easily identifiable as there is no such model authorized for resale anywhere in the Americas region. The VA912 silver may be identified by its silver bezel. As well, the VA912 silver has only an analog video input. There is no DVI (Digital) input on this model. The authorized model for Canada is the VA912B-4, which has a black bezel and both Analog and DVI (Digital) inputs.

As a valued customer of ViewSonic, should you ever feel you are offered an opportunity to purchase ViewSonic product at a price that seems to be exceptionally low or you are unfamiliar with the model number, please feel free to contact our office or an authorized distributor to verify authenticity.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support and ViewSonic will take action to prevent, to the best of our ability, this kind of activity.

Sincerely,

*Sorry, removing name guys. *

ViewSonic Canada
