You should read and grasp the entire situation before you post, as this will give the impression that you are more intelligent, which is a good thing!
Yes, MSI accepted the RMA and has offered him to options in return. He didn't like the first option of the refund of market value, and I don't blame him. The second option was a open door to negotiate better terms.
In no way does this look like MSI is trying to get out of something, in fact, there hasn't been any mention of anything being faulty to begin with (by them). So, its very likely that they tested the card, and deemed that it was nominal or acceptable.
OP should've RMA'd with Newegg, as the process is so much easier and much more painless. Besides, you basically always take back "broken" items to the retailer, not the manufacturer.
This thread has really been blown out of proportion, but I guess everyone likes to hear about the latest and greatest unjustified actions made by a few individuals representing a company.
You want a real situation? Heres something to be mad about, and I dont mean to thread Necro
