Company Name: ATI
Product: x600 AIW
Warranty Period: Unknown
Date purchased: August 2007
Date RMAed: August 2007
Where it was sent to: Near Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Ease of RMA: 10
Any extra fees?: no
Wait time: 1 week
Details: I bought an x600 AIW from OCForums classies. He knew it was broken and wanted to see if anyone could fix it. I bought it for the price of shipping, I think. I got it, found that it didn't work, and talked to ATI. They suggested I RMA it, so I did and it was quickly repaired!
Satisfaction: 10 out of 10

Wait time: very fast (5 days round trip)
Details: everything was fairly good. item was shipped fedex but somehow picked up a $19 custom charge

Very few people know this but you can contest customs charges by calling the number on the back of the customs form which you received with your package. People that contest on the basis of it being an RMA are usually granted a rebate of their customs fees after about 4 weeks.Since the original item was bought in Canada before RMA, it already has all the Canadian tariffs charged on it so they are not allowed to charge you customs fees on it a second time. You will need to provide your original bill of sale, your RMA form as well as the customs documentation which came through the shipper and fax them to the CCRA. You will be able to get your money back most of the time.

Ive had a good experience everywhere Ive RMA, Crucial, Mushkin, OCZ, ASUS (except their tech people are useless), Gigabyte, Foxconn.

If I were to choose the best experience I would say it's Crucial hands down.

IMO, the only place that sucks is DFI, they will think of an excuse to not accept the RMA no matter what you do.

I go straight to manu in USA most of the time or for resellers Ive gone thru NCIX many times without too much trouble.
