[HC] EVGA Revises Standard Warranty - Page 3

post #21 of 42
doesn't make sense with what you guys are saying?

an MSRP for $500 and over isn't high end? I think this will be applied to all their hardware as a way to generate additional profit to cover for the warranty expenses.

That's what I'm thinking as well.

You can consider the extra cost warranty upgrade for the "higher-end" products as a form of insurance (which is essentially what a warranty is). If you paid more for the product, then it will cost more to insure it, hence the hike in cost.

Wait... you guys are happy that eVGA is now charging for their warranties? What are they, Best Buy?

Charging to extend the warranty, not charging for warranty in general. Before you didn't even have an option to extend the warranty at all even if you wanted to. On top of that, they are extending the standard warranty from 1+1 (1 year non-registered + 1 more year once registered within 30 days) to 3 years (registered and non-registered). This is bringing only improvements and no drawbacks.

I wonder what they will do when someone brings them a 10 year old card in 2021? Talk about a hell of a step up.

As stated below the standard warranty has been extended and now you have the option to extend it even further. This great for someone like my dad who keeps his office computer for many years until he HAS to upgrade. Or servers as people have mentioned.

I hope other companies follow as I'm sure this is a great way to bring in money which for the most part will never be claimed.

I'm surprised no European chimed in about this yet.

It seems the maximum length allowed for a warranty in Europe is 10 years.

That's why they only offer lifetime in NA.

Unfortunately stuff like the GTX460 isn't covered lifetime.

Good info. I have created a warranty spreadsheet in my sig of all GPU warranties in the USA and I updated EVGA.

I am still trying to figure this part out.
"Registration Recommended – Registration is now recommended for 3 year warranty. Registration within 30 days of purchase will still be required to purchase extended warranty."

It sounds like you have to decide to purchase the warranty within the first 30 days.

In case anyone is interested I called EVGA today and was told the "KR" warranty is only to the first owner and cannot be transfered. Paul also said you need to register it within 30 days.

So it is not a serial based warranty that can be resold with a warranty per EVGA.
