PostPosted: Sat Jan 08, 2011 1:20 am    Post subject: Ethics question...

i bought an upgrade from someone who i can't remember from, and understood that it was as is. this board(it has nothing to do with Goldie, so don't even ask), never worked from the get go. now, looking around, i found that i can get a new one, same model. now, here's the question. should i get the new one, replace it with my old one, claim that it did not work, and get a refund? or possibly go to the company, make up some story over the delay in the problem, and try to get it fixed/reflashed?

I'm sure the compnay will fix the board for you, maybe only charge you shipping? Or a small fee, most companies stand by there products enough, if they break, they'll help fix it

Only sometimes it gets abused, like when hybrid put a lifetime warranty on they're halo shells, people were breaking them on purpose...

Id say just tell the company you have a board that doesn't work and you want to get it fixed

If you don't mind me asking, what is the make of the board?

Tadao is good people. I would just go the ethical route. They should replace it promptly.

I am a straight shooter. I would go the ethical route.

I have heard good things about their customer service.

Tadao is awesome. Even if he charges you to fix it, he charges very reasonable fees. I had a DM6 board that needed a switch replacement and he charged $20 to do that (could have done it myself for less, but didn't want to void the warranty, board switch was damaged by previous owner).

When his website overcharged me on shipping they sent me a refund out of no where. It was $2, I could careless about that much especially since I was already paying that much for shipping.

I had a Tadao that needed repair. They were great! I think I paid $20 for the repair.

yeah, i've been sitting on this, and i think i will go the ethical route. i think my conscious would be better overall. why create a problem, when i can easily fix it and the total cost WOULD be less than the switch and complain.
