Lifetime Warranty

I used to think it was a joke until today. I received a nice courier package containing a new 128MB 133mhz RAM I must have got ages ago.

Through my years of buying memory and harddrives, I've always been quite amused by the fact that kingston had some lifetime warranty label. I never thought too much about it until I realised I had a spare (and compatible with my current machines) simm that wasn't in a computer. How horrid is that?

So I opened up my Pentium 3 667 and stuck it in and it didn't work. Not having Sim Lim Square around the corner, I decided to look on the kingston site. After a few links, I think I managed to send an electronic form to the australian distributor stating my problem. They quickly responded with an RMA. In response, I mailed the memory back in an envelop to NSW for bit more than 5 bucks and thought thats the last I'd see of it.

As I was walking past my pigeon hole, I noticed a note saying package in the bigger pigeon hole below and it was a couier package.

The end of the story is that now, the memory is now sitting comfortably in my Pentium 3 mainboard, being fed electricity, living hapily ever after, giving me the much needed overhead RAM.

The End
