Phil, Thanks for the reply. Not saying i didnt blow the board, but i come from a long line of computer hardware and data communications guys. Plus all the Navy training... I have been building electronic components since I was 5. I have built , troubleshot and repaired hundreds of computers and in my experience the number of times I have had DOA motherboards, cards or RAM has greatly out numbered the couple of times In my younger years where I had inadvertently zapped a componnent.
I guess my point here is that I don't quite understand how MTH is getting away with this policy. It assumes 100 percent trust in their quality and puts 100 percent of the liability on the customer and that is not right.
I would say that kind of business model has a dim future with my generation and younger....
Going to see what they say and will let you guys know.
