    The Asus RMA department did it again!

    So this time I was a little frustrated. Last week I packed up my G73JW-XA1 and sent it in to the Milpitas, CA repair center for a second screen replacement. It had developed a fairly bright spot on one side of the screen and a couple clusters of dead pixels on the other side. Needless to say after sending it in not 4 months before for the same issue, I was a bit miffed. However, them's the breaks with hardware. It happens sometimes.

    I shipped it out last Thursday (9-29), and I was hoping that it would only take a week like it did last time. When I got home from school, there was a package sitting on my office chair. When I saw it I let out a "squee" of joy. I missed having my porta-beast, and have been looking forward to loading BF3 on it all week. When I opened up the box and looked at the service tag, my jaw hit the floor. I actually did a double take. Not only did they replace the entire screen assembly (bezel, case, etc.), they also replaced my 750GB Seagate HDD. When I opened the case to find out what they gave me (figuring they booted it, detected a problem, and simply replaced it), I discovered they had replaced it with the exact same drive that I'd been looking at replacing it with anyway. I now have a shiny 750GB Western Digital Scorpio Black.

    As I write this, I'm restoring the image that I made before I sent it in, and I'm excited to put the new drive through its paces. This experience has cemented my next motherboard and laptop purchases firmly in the hands of Asus!

    So thank you to the crew in the Milpitas repair center, and thank you to Asus ROG. I look forward to seeing you guys at GeForce Lan 6 and winning an Asus motherboard (or maybe a second G73... hehe)!

    I think this service center was an independent RMA center, but still they represented Asus well. In fact the people on the phone that I spoke to were awesome as well. There really wasn't any questioning or attempt to blame me for the failure of the device (I'm looking at you Dell/Alienware), and the support representative created the RMA ticket right away.

    I know others have had issues with support, and being a computer tech myself I can say for sure that you get far better service by being kind and understanding than by being belligerent and demanding. Many of these repairs take time, sometimes as long as several weeks, and I understand that it's frustrating. However, remember that the technicians and support representatives are people too, and sometimes they're stuck behind back orders of parts, company policy, or incomplete information.

    I certainly hope the guys from the Milpitas service center are at GeForce Lan 6. I'd like to thank them personally for another great service experience.

    FYI, I am not employed by Asus (I wish I was, I could really use a job right now).
