Just wondering...

If your warranty says, 1 to 1 exchange, and they tell u no stock for the item, and need to send for repair which takes 1 month, and then they give u a super inferior replacement (lower specs one).

So if i request for an upgrade, is it ok? felt damn sianz... next time see 1 to 1 exchange must see company also... :angry:

emailed them yesterday no reply yet... sekali like my previous RMA, warranty not over, until warranty over yet not repaired, then still wanna charge me, lost of use for 1.5months...

Thought your 7D got problem :embrass:

Ask them for a temporary loan unit (not too low end) and wait for a higher/same replacement?

Which brand is it, have to keep that distributor in mind also.

Well, as least they honour the warranty :sweat:

Assuming that there are no other terms and conditions other than the 1-1 exchange, it is the shop's responsibility to keep buffer to do such exchanges. Saying that there is no stock is merely an excuse and does not negate the fact that they have breached the contract. Their obligation is to provide an exchange for an identical item, not a super inferior replacement, and not to send for repair. By not meeting these obligations, they are in breach of contract.

As for whether you can upgrade or not, you may do so at your own option. The shop may or may not allow it, but if they do, and you agree to waive your rights to the 1-1 exchange, then everyone is happy. If they refuse to allow the upgrade, then they are still in breach of their contract.

its not the shop, its actually the distributor... worse scenario... anyway they sent me a email for the 'upgrade', its like literally giving them the card & buy a new 1 pricing... :cry:

sianz... think once i sell my Zenitar off, take the money to buy a new GFX... higher specs than the 'upgrade' at the same price...

Hmm okay, its the distributor then :)

In that case, if the upgrade costs as much as a new card, then inform them that if they do not honour their 1-1 exchange, they are in breach of their contract.

Whether or not you wish to sue in Small Claims Tribunal would probably depend on how much effort you want to expend and how much your old card costs.

By the way, I think you may want to start thinking about naming the Distributor. Also, in your email, SOMETIMES, by mentioning that you intend to recount your experiences in a public forum if you are unable to reach satisfactory resolution, it may motivate them to offer you more plalatable terms.

actually the card they offered for upgrade is a old version, only slightly faster than my old card, and they will sell me at about same price as what i see at sls price, which is i lose my current card which have 1 more month warranty... double lost to me imho...

anyway from the looks of it, seems like everybody is all having the same level of services, i think next time i'll take note of distributor when buying a product... good luck to manufacturers...

I just got another idea from the second paragraph of your post - perhaps you could copy the manufacturer in your correspondence so that they are aware of what a "good" job their Singapore distributor is doing.
