Epox return policy
 
Anyone here ever deal with epox in regards to returning a defective mobo.

I've just replaced the Bios chip with a new one i had to order, however the same old problem exists. So i'am assuming that it is mobo related.

The only problem i have with epox is that you can't return directly, you have to go back to the supplier you purchased the motherboard from, ie PCWORLD :(

So the piggy in the middle ensues, well at least i hope not anyway :D.

So was it a painless experience or not?

Hi,

It's usual (well, at least in Poland and Germany), that you have to return the mobo to the supplier you purchased it from. Normally, the supplier (let's call him "shop") sends your mobo then to the main distributor in your country. Actually, it depends on that distributor how long you will wait.

In my case, with my old Epox 8RDA3+ rev.2.1, I had to wait almost 5 weeks for an answer (positive, fortunately) - they should have sent me then a new one, but they didn't, so after a 7 week long waiting the shop bought me an Epox motherboard. That was possible, because I personally know the owners/menagers of that shop. In the other case I would have waited even longer. Of course the polish damn distributor is to blame, but what could I do? Sue'em? Waisting of precious time and money ....

I hope you'll wait much shorter than I did.

;) :thumbsup:

If you were to return an item to a shop in the UK you are protected by consumer law. If you think the shop has failed in some way you can get free help.

For example if you live in Hull or bought something from a shop in Hull:

Thanks for the link Danrock, hopefully it won't come down to that.
