Bought AMD 295x2? Well you're screwed. At least I am screwed.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This is a story of how Scan UK returns department absolutely screwed me over.
If you have a High End card and something is wrong with it, you're screwed too.


TL;DR:

208£ refund after one year for a GPU worth 780-1100£ (Click on it) on the market - or a replacement for a GPU with 55% performance of the original one.

Quote

 


Refusal of repair. (Yes they can repair it, it's a water pump failure, which they confirmed.)

Quote

"Unfortunately we can't get this graphics card repaired the only option is replace it with the graphics card already offered or process the market value refund."


I am a hostage of the Returns Department at Scan.
My voice as a Customer doesn't even matter. You either take this worse card, or 1/4 of the card's worth...

Or you know what? Doesn't even matter what you think - We will just give you that 208£ because you do not agree with us.

Quote

"As we can't come to a resolution we are processing the refund of £208.14+vat and the funds will be in your account within the next 3-5 working days."


____________________________________________________

So, long story.


I have returned a FAULTY graphics card after one year. [Water Pump Failure] (2 Year Warranty)
Since the card is no longer in production, (R9 295x2) I expected a replacement of similar performance or value. (Current Market Value - approx. 800£, it's basically 2x 290X on one PCB, or 1.6x of one 980Ti.)


Neither of those has occurred. The reutrns department offered me 208£ for a card worth 780-1100£ on the market or a replacement for a graphics card that doesn't NEARLY come to the performance of 295x2. (One 390X worth 330£.)
I asked for repair of the card - refused. "We will not repair the card."

To add an insult to an injury, I have requested to not go any further until I seek legal advice (Can they do that? What should I do if we are in this patte situation?), and have thought of proceeding further on Manufacturer's warranty - which is still on (2 years.) - HOWEVER SCAN HAS DECIDED TO REFUND ME 208£ AND CLOSED THE RMA.

"As we can't come to a resolution we are processing the refund of £208.14+vat"
So where is my graphics card now Scan? You have literally stolen my GPU, and decide what to do despite my specific disapproval of this refund amount and request to **hold** until I contact how can we decently solve this situation.


I have specifically said, NOT TO PROCEED, until I have contacted a solicitor on the matter.
What a BRILLIANT customer service. Do one thing, that customer has specifically said NOT TO DO. I declined a refund of 208£, as the card is currently worth MUCH MORE THAN THAT (Again, 780£ is the cheapest i found.), and is WAY BETTER than what has been offered.


Better yet, I have asked for REPAIR which IS POSSIBLE (Water Pump exchange) and Scan has refused to do that, without giving me the possibility to discuss such matter with the Manufacturer. (XFX)


But wait!
There's more!


I have decided to negotiate with Scan - Okay, I am willing to take a GPU that is BETTER than what you offer, (Still worse than my original one) - and I will BUY a SECOND one, so you can keep a net profit and it will be an upgrade for me, as well as business for you. (I asked for one 980 Ti - and I will buy a second one.)


Sounds great right? - You win for a happy customer, and you still get to profit as I will buy another one. It would be an upgrade for me, and an RMA for you.

Quote

"Sorry but we can only offer LN65147 or process the refund."

One E-mail later saying - Please hold, I will contact you shortly.

Quote

"Current status of your RMA: Credit Authorisation

We can confirm that a refund has been authorised for your returned goods which will be processed by our Accounts Department shortly."

For 208£.
 

For a GPU better than one Titan X...

 

Customer Service? What's that.

That really sucks. In the US we would just RMA with the manufacturer since there's like a 3 year warranty on enthusiast cards. It's definitely not worth 1000 pounds though, but worth way more than 200. Depending on how much it's worth to you or how much trouble you are willing to go through, you could custom cool it yourself. Good luck.

That's the thing, I have 2 year manufacturer warranty. The card only was in my possession for a year (From new.)
But they just went through with refund, without giving me an option to say anything on this.

Other thing is, I found it cheapest for 780£ on PCPartPicker. (Sapphire though, not XFX) Which is why I said 780-1100£.

If you think about it, it has a performance of 2x 290X, which is better than a single Titan X and 980 Ti. (800£ and 500£)

So I should AT LEAST receive one 980Ti, I would be satisfied with that. It's actually what I offered, - I told them that I can accept one 980 Ti for a refund - and I WILL BUY FROM THEM another one just to get an SLI Setup.

But nope, you can get one rehashed 290X apparently, worth 320£, or go stuff yourself with 208£ which you cannot even buy one 970 for.

To be fair it's an EOL product and not too many were made. Obviously the store is short selling you by a ton but its actual value is really iffy. A brand new 980Ti is worth significantly more than a 295x2 if you want to sell it on r/hardware swap or something. Not that the 295x2 is less powerful than the 980ti, but the 980ti is just a newer more refined product really. I think 2 390s would be good compensation. They should give you used stock if they have any, that might make your offer more appealing.

Is this 2 year warranty the manufacturer's warranty? Because from their terms (and as far as I can understand), Scan is only personally responsible for refunding or replacing the item in full for a 3 month period.

After that, it's upto the manufacturer to honor their 2 year warranty. :|

The problem is that this is an nVidia product and scoring any nVidia product a "zero" is also highly predictive of the number of nVidia products the reviewer will receive for review in the future.

Things aren't as 'wild west' here in the EU. While the seller does have the right to set conditions for the services they provide, they do not have the right to counteract any laws with them. As per EU directive 83/2011, they have the obligation to correct any faults or mistakes they cause of make. Even if they present themselves after any arbitrary warranty periods. In consumer electronics, broken/malfunctioning products (that aren't caused by misuse or wear and tear) are considered to fall under these rulings for at least four years. As per the same directive, it's the seller that's responsible, not the importer and not the manufacturer. This is the reason EU citizens are directed to the seller first. 

While this obligation to correct faults is technically not a warranty, in layman's terms it's considered to be one. To simplify, there is no such thing as a warranty that's shorter than two years in EU for consumer electronics.

 

I must admit, while I'm familiar with the directive and Finland's application of it, it's still a directive. EU directives don't overrule national laws. They only require the national laws to be amended to comply with the directives. I can't say if UK has followed through. It's been five years, so I'm assuming but I'm by no means sure.

 

OP: get in contact with the lawyer you mentioned. The matter is not done.

Get in contact with a lawyer and set up a court date, have the court send a letter to Scan UK. In practice, you should cease any and all contact with Scan UK outside of the court room. The way they have treated you, makes them extremely unreliable. Don't believe a word they say, and only accept court written orders as compensation.

 

You should also contact XFX with this. While they probably won't be able to do much, i'm sure they would appreciate information regarding how horrible Scan UK treats their customers.

Point taken. Allow me to challenge that.
For a second let's forget market value, potential upgrades, generations and everything.

Let's talk Performance.
perfrel_3840.gif

So I understand your point that people do not want to pay more for 295x2 - Because that's all it can achieve. You can SLI another 980 Ti - but 295x2 is already a Crossfire card by having 2x Hawaii GPU's on one PCB.

The problem is, as you can see, 295x2 has better 4K Performance. And that's what I need.

I have a 32' 4K Panel.
What else can you offer to balance the scales out? This card was the sweetspot, and because 980 Ti is based more on the future upgrade than the current performance today, I was okay with having RMA one of them, and keep the business with them and buy another one. That's an upgrade for me, business for them.

I have offered this to the person in the E-mail - I am willing to replace the 295x2 for one 980 Ti, and I will buy another one from you. Which gives them a profit of me upgrading my setup, as well as having a good RMA experience. But that's still a cost of 560£ for me, to get a bit better over my previous 4K experience.

I'd understand two 390X's. That would be an actual replacement of 295x2. Still a bit shitty, because it takes more space and I'd have to battle heat differently, but it's basically rehashed 290X - Which is what the the two 290X GPUs inside 295x2 are. 

However, one 390X not only offers 78% (Again, rehashed 290X - Look up chart above) but it's worth less than I paid for 295x2 originally - and MASSIVELY less than the "Current market Value".

So,
Back to the market value then:
295x2

1100£ Amazon.
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sapphire-295X2-Graphics-GDDR5-Mini-DPx/dp/B00JMI5HPO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1461177784&sr=8-1&keywords=295x2

790£ Amazon (NOT WATERCOOLED. So Worse cooling solution.)
https://www.amazon.co.uk/AXR9-290XII-8GBD5-Graphics-DisplayPort/dp/B00LAX3WJC?ie=UTF8&tag=pcp0f-21


980 Ti
518£
http://www.morecomputers.com/product.aspx?pn=GV-N98TWF3OC-6GD&man=Gigabyte&referer=PCPart


So,
Better performance from a single card (295x2)
Bigger value on the market (295x2)

I would not be winning in this situation by accepting 980 Ti, because I would have to spend another 518£ on an upgrade to get decent 4K performance that I had with 295x2.

I do not want to go full on Panama Papers on them. I just want my graphics card fixed.

Your card is not going to be fixed.  That much is obvious.  At this point the only real question is can you get better compensation for your loss.

And, afraid to say, but I'm skeptical you will.

A court regarding this matter will be a meeting between you, your legal representative and Scan's representative and/or their legal representative. It may be that Scan's representative is also their legal representative. There will also be a judge present. If the evidence is solid, such a proceeding will take less than two hours, and it's very unlikely that Scan will agree to a court meeting. The likely outcome, after acknowledging that you are serious about the matter, is a meeting without a judge were both parties agree to settle the matter. In which case Scan will most likely accept some token blame, you accept some token blame and they pay you a one time sum. The downside of a legal settlement is the fact that getting Scan to pay for your legal fees is gonna be very hard, whereas a judge may order Scan to pay if the evidence is overwhelming.

 

In the event of a legal settlement, Scan may ask you to not spread evidence and/or speak of the incident. So i would advise you to not spread evidence of Scan's behavior until you have spoken with your legal adviser.

 

There is also a possibility that Scan offers you a full refund at the mere prospect of legal involvement.

 

You should of course speak with a lawyer, i personally only have a full year single class law study in Norway. So my expertise is limited, i certainly would not demand money for my services at this point. In addition, my field of study incorporates economy and business, so the law study is split into several parts. The purchase of goods between a professional seller and a private customer, was only a small part.

Scan doesn't do shit for RMAs...I had to contact creative for my RMA of my soundblaster omni (this was less than a month ago) and creative was very very helpful although sometimes it took them more than 48 hours to respond...while scan just told me "they only support this product for one year"...erm I'm sorry, RMAs are meant to go through the retailer which I bought it from...oh well, at lease I have my RMAed omni back from creative after 2 weeks of initiating the RMA...creative and fiercePC (the only other retailer I've done RMAs with and had no problems), you have my business :D 

 

Finally, the retailer is meant to inspect the item if you're RMAing with them then they are supposed to return the item to the manufacturer and either give you a full refund or a appropriate replacement of similar value of original price...or that's what I've learnt it to be...

TL;DR:

208£ refund after one year for a GPU worth 780-1100£ (Click on it) on the market - or a replacement for a GPU with 55% performance of the original one.

 


Refusal of repair. (Yes they can repair it, it's a water pump failure, which they confirmed.)


I am a hostage of the Returns Department at Scan.

Or you know what? Doesn't even matter what you think - We will just give you that 208£ because you do not agree with us.


____________________________________________________

So, long story.


I have returned a FAULTY graphics card after one year. [Water Pump Failure] (2 Year Warranty)
Since the card is no longer in production, (R9 295x2) I expected a replacement of similar performance or value. (Current Market Value - approx. 800£, it's basically 2x 290X on one PCB, or 1.6x of one 980Ti.)


Neither of those has occurred. The reutrns department offered me 208£ for a card worth 780-1100£ on the market or a replacement for a graphics card that doesn't NEARLY come to the performance of 295x2. (One 390X worth 330£.)
I asked for repair of the card - refused. "We will not repair the card."

To add an insult to an injury, I have requested to not go any further until I seek legal advice (Can they do that? What should I do if we are in this patte situation?), and have thought of proceeding further on Manufacturer's warranty - which is still on (2 years.) - HOWEVER SCAN HAS DECIDED TO REFUND ME 208£ AND CLOSED THE RMA.

"As we can't come to a resolution we are processing the refund of £208.14+vat"
So where is my graphics card now Scan? You have literally stolen my GPU, and decide what to do despite my specific disapproval of this refund amount and request to **hold** until I contact how can we decently solve this situation.


I have specifically said, NOT TO PROCEED, until I have contacted a solicitor on the matter.
What a BRILLIANT customer service. Do one thing, that customer has specifically said NOT TO DO. I declined a refund of 208£, as the card is currently worth MUCH MORE THAN THAT (Again, 780£ is the cheapest i found.), and is WAY BETTER than what has been offered.


Better yet, I have asked for REPAIR which IS POSSIBLE (Water Pump exchange) and Scan has refused to do that, without giving me the possibility to discuss such matter with the Manufacturer. (XFX)


But wait!
There's more!


I have decided to negotiate with Scan - Okay, I am willing to take a GPU that is BETTER than what you offer, (Still worse than my original one) - and I will BUY a SECOND one, so you can keep a net profit and it will be an upgrade for me, as well as business for you. (I asked for one 980 Ti - and I will buy a second one.)


Sounds great right? - You win for a happy customer, and you still get to profit as I will buy another one. It would be an upgrade for me, and an RMA for you.

One E-mail later saying - Please hold, I will contact you shortly.

For 208£.
 

For a GPU better than one Titan X...

 

Customer Service? What's that.

You should contact xfx and let them know how the place you bought the card treats their customers they wont be very happy for sure.

 You could buy a alpahcool water block to cool the card on a custom loop

Custom loop? You can just buy a new AIO and attach that, can't you? Go 240mm instead, too!

Not quite, maybe 2 AIO's if you can fit them onto the included block/block holder.
