Company: ASUS
Product: RT-N12 Router
Warranty: 2 years
Purchased: Sometime a year ago
RMAed: Oct 15 2919
Send to: Markham
Fees: Shipping ($10)
Ease: 8
Wait Time: 1 week
Satisfaction: 9

-Router stopped working.
-Had to search around for the RMA link on the website.
-RMA number was sent fairly quickly, but the RMA note was sent in an unformated wall of text. I had to copy and paste the message into word so it would be legible and readable. It doesn't make it very easy when they do this.
-Instructions asked me not to send the original box or any of the accessories.
-Once they got my router, it was a 3 day turnaround and they sent me a brand new in the box router.

Not sure why they didn't let me send the accessories. Now I have a spare power adapter.

Have to say that was much faster and easier than the last ASUS RMA I had to do (old P5Q I believe).
Enough so that I might Knock Gigabyte off my top tier for CS related issues.

Company Name: Acer
Product: TravelMate 29xx laptop (paid $297 on clearance)
Warranty Period: 1 year + 2 years extended
Date purchased: Feb 2007, ext warranty purchased Jan 2008 for $99
Date RMAed: 1st RMA Jan 2008, 2nd RMA Jan 2010
Where it was sent to: 1st: Markham ON, 2nd: Burnaby BC
Ease of RMA: 10
Any extra fees?: 1st: no, 2nd: time/gas to drop off at repair depot
Wait time: 5-10 business days
Details: 1st RMA: keyboard & touchpad flaking out, Acer sent courier with packing material to ship unit. Unit came back with issues addressed plus a new HDD and battery. Decided to purchase 2 year ext warranty at that time.
2nd RMA: general wear and tear for a 3 year old laptop (KB and touchpad again), paid for the warranty so took advantage of it. Repair depot called and said unable to repair unit because parts unavailable. Acer sent a new/factory sealed TM5530 to replace the "broken" TM29xx.
Satisfaction: 10

There wasn't anything really wrong with the unit before each RMA (just normal wear and tear), but I thought I'd take advantage of the fact that it was still under warranty. Filing the RMA request online was quick and easy.

Awesome thread!

I'm totally going to buy MSI, Antec, OCZ, WD and Seagate gear just so that I don't have to deal with shipping to the USA

My System Specs


Company Name: Eagle Tech
Product: Usb 3.0 Enclosure
Warranty Period: 1 year
Date purchased: Summer / fall 2010
Date RMAed: winter 2010
Where it was sent to: never sent anything
Ease of RMA: 10
Any extra fees?: nope
Wait time: less then a week, I don't know the exact date they shipped but it was here fast
Details: I received a usb 3.0 enclosure from these guys without a power supply a couple months back and had just opened it, I ended up trying to find one on ebay or find one locally, my local search came up dead as they just were not powerful enough, I did however find one on ebay. Got it a month later and it was broken, the plug was smushed with something like pliars. So I decide to get ahold of Eagle Tech and see what they would say, I expected to be told to screw off that mistakes like that do not happen etc etc but they simply asked me to email my invoice to them and they would send me a new one, I did this on around December 22nd, got no reply's however about weather or not the item shipped. I contacted them again on the 27th and got a very detailed explaination about why it may of not of shipped or if it did, they then told me to re submit the invoice and they would make sure it was sent out now. Today this morning I open my door to let my dog out and I see a package from someone, I figured it was just from NCIX as it was a similar size to there small boxes and left it on my coffee table for awhile until later when I get home and my cats playing with it. I take a look and it's from Eagle Tech Now, they must've shipped this thing the fastest way possible to get it to me during this holiday rush, even if it was sent on the 22nd that to me is damn good shipping isn't it? Now if it was shipped on the 27th then that is just plain amazing. all I got to add is Eagle Tech's RMA department has everything perfected except the little bit of lack of communication which could be fixed easy otherwise there running it perfectly.
