KingWin PSU...yes or no? - Page 3

post #21 of 30
their rma process sucks. I have the mach 1 product and it failed within two months. tried to rma the product, which they want me to pay for shipping to them and back to me. upon arrival, they say they couldnt find anything wrong, and sent it back to me (again on my dime). it gets here and the problem remains. the damn thing wont turn on when I try to boot. mad.gif

I probably just got a dud but their customer service is sub par

honest opinion, you don't need that much power for cf 6970

You couldn't be more true. Kingwin's RMA service is almost none existent. They don't return your calls, their online RMA service doesn't work properly, and they certainly won't pick up the phone unless you call their sales number. I have never had to return a Corsair product, but I only hear good things about their RMA.

ya I just tried to call them and hit the extension for RMA and it went right to voicemail. It said shipping and RMA. Call their sales line and someone picks up right away.lol They still may be a good product but for some reason they think they do not have to support the end user at all. I am really on the edge with ordering the LZ-1000. I really like the price point and the look and performance that jonnyguru had to say some good things about it. No real reason to get the gold series when in his test it was running way to hot to begin with at gold levels. So it is relly moe a silver or even a bronze.

I spoke to a nice sale associate, and she did say that i would have to pay to send it to them fro RMA but they send it back at no charge. Also that if we dont get someone on the phone in the tech dept to call the sles line and they can handle it for you. Not saying it gives me the warm fuzzies, but it is better than the servie and answers I got from XFX when I called about my 6950 that I ditched within a week.

Overall, they are pretty good. Not without their faults, but solid overall. I think they could use some help in the aesthetics division, but that's just personal preference.

Had mines (SigRig) for almost 2 years and its been great. Leds are still fine and bright as ever. I clean mines ever so often, every 2 weeks which is maybe some of the reason why mines lasted this long.

Kingwin is very underestimated, they have a budget line and they have supreme high quality line.
