Yeah, great logic some people have on this forum. Take a company to court over a $50 mouse, lol. Gotta love the internet. Maybe once you become an adult with some logical thinking, you'll realize what a waste of money and time that is.

Pretty funny how people are saying if you let a company do this to you, it's your fault for believing their "bull". The internet discussions boards have become insufferable, jesus.

And yes, this has always been a law, but the FTC never enforced it. You can read stories all over the web of companies refusing warranty service for this BS. They're sending warnings to all companies violating this law and if they don't adhere to the rules, there will law enforcement action.

Small claims court is more of a burden for the company than the individual.

Logitech refused to rma my G102 because it's not meant for the EU market (I actually corrected the support guy who said it was for the US market lol) and a screenshot from ebay doesn't count as proof of purchase because ebay is not an authorized seller. Any advice on this? Are they BSing me?

The G203 is the one for EU, right? The nearest Logitech factory probably doesn’t have a G102 to give you (even if they are the same...)

And yeah, eBay purchases aren’t eligible for warranty. The warranty would belong to whoever owned the mouse originally.

This is exactly what class action suits are for. Or small claims.

The effort is not worth it for $50, no, but it might just be worth it as a small revenge for bad customer service. And even if you don't intend on pursuing legal action, just knowing the law gives you a much better bargaining position.

it was always illegal for them to void your warranty for opening your mouse. this is not a subject of argument. if you got convinced that your warranty was voided then you're a victim of fraud.

Tbh warranty should always apply imo if there's no physical damage to mechanical / electrical parts.
