    overclockers co uk refuses to send me a replacement, refunds instead

    Hi guys,

    recently i purchased an ATI 5850 from overclockers co uk, after about ~3 weeks it turned out to be faulty. So i send it in for RMA fully expecting to receive a replacement after they forwarded it to sapphire.

    Now they have refunded me, without my agreement. Since i purchased the GPU it has risen in price quite a lot. -so naturally i want a replacement...

    They say that i agreed to the refund, but i dont see that part anywhere in that email. Can somebody please shed some light as to why they are acting in such a fashion?

    a) You agreed to the refund when we gave you the terms and conditions of return in the RMA e-mail and you used the RMA number from that e-mail to send the item back.

    Do they have any in stock? They have been discontinued so it would explain the rise in price - they are still quite desirable by Bitcoin miners for example, being one of the fastest cards for it. I'm not sure how things work legally (Hexus member Saracen is good with this) but OcUK aren't exactly known for their great customer services...

    Yes they are in stock but i wouldnt mind waiting because i assume they have to send it back to Sapphire in order to get a replacement themselves.

    I would have send it back to sapphire myself but it appears that sapphire doesnt offer that if the shop who sold the item is still operational.

    Well, operational only barely applies to OcUK support.
    You could try to say the shop is being unhelpful, I've had luck doing this with another retailer in the past, but they might not have any stock for an exact replacement themselves.

    In short, they are perfectly entitled offer you a full refund of all monies paid and nothing else. You cannot force them to offer you a replacement.

    Feel sorry for OcUK? Seriously?

    Maybe they were misjudged in this case but it's the exception rather than the rule from my experience...
