Lifetime warranty becomes 30 day warranty when you use it.
on 10 December 2013
I had originally given these memory sticks a good review. I suppose they are like most electronics, if they work then they are good. But I've now had the RAM fail on me twice. It failed once and I thought oh well, these things happen i'll just get it RMA'd (sent back for repair/replacement) by Corsair.
Then when the RAM was returned to me, the note now says that I only have 30 days warranty on these repaired/replacement chips. So some memory I bought that was less than a year old broke...they were replaced by Corsair for free...but now I only have 30 days warranty on them. Sure enough, it's 6 months later and the same chips that were replaced under warranty have now broken again and I cannot have them RMAd because it's beyond the 30 days.
So their "lifetime warranty" is a pile of dog poop since if you ever need to use that lifetime warranty it then becomes 30 days warranty. Even if your product is still under 1 year old. Considering the fact that now 4 sticks of these have broken , I think i'll be avoiding Corsair products from now on and sticking with a well known brand and one that won't try to screw me out of my warranty.
