Beware Chaintech Warranty

    FYI: One of the two Chaintech GeForce 3 Ti 200 display cards I bought last year died. In the process of arranging for return/replacement of the card I discovered Chaintech's warranty is only good for one year from the card's date of manufacture, NOT the purchase date. Also they require a $35 "refundable diagnostic fee" accompany a returned product.

    I don't care to risk "paying" another $35 for an already old tech card, so its going in the scrap bin. I don't care for this style of warranty implementation and will be avoiding Chaintech products in the future.
