The Customer Service Dept. of Leadtek Research Inc. can only setup RMA services for the original end user (the original buyer) to send the product back for repair or replacement if the product is still under Warranty. If the product is purchased in North America and be brought to other regions outside North America, the customer must provide a valid mailing address in the U.S. for warranty repair/replacement. We do not mail RMA returns to addresses outside North America (namely U.S. and Canada only).
The warranty period shall begin on the date on which the product was originally purchased by the customer (proof date) and shall expire
36 months following that date (Graphics & Multimedia products)
