    BS. You can pick it up. You just have to speak to the right guy in the nicest tone. Alternatively you could try the, "If I don't get this package today, my job will fire me!!"

    It's worked for me, so good luck! It's a weekend and YOUR RIGHT to have a working card!!

    Im amazed you guys even order from a company who charges restocking fees for faulty or damaged products. vote with your wallet, only way to hit these guys and spread the word.

    These forums are open for that, im also going to open a new forum for threads like this so people can get ideas about companies before ordering.

    Useally they have good hardware and good prices but you have to kinda
    click pay then pray. If you have an issue :sigh: they havn't got poor
    customer survice rateings for nothing :D

    This is the 1st time I've had a magor issue with them. Fell ecspacilly dicked due
    after all the time I've been with out I could not get the better card (XTX) for like
    $30-50 more else where plus the fact I havent herd word one from RMA dept
    or thier customer service. Other then the std here's you RMA# ship it here///
    Yea I coul call but I shouldn't have to.

    Well I'll know well enough on monday I serouly will say ok I'll pay the shipping
    I mean I passed up going to new egg due to like $6 shipping for 3 day, zipzooms was free 2day. Considering what I eved up with I should of went for the newegg option....

    (I'cve had issues with them too but they have good customer service)

    interesting... yea well I'verd order from them many times and all was well.
    Never really read thier policies... now that I have i'm like WTF? WTF?

    Damn I just read this thread.. :duh:

    I had a similar experience with a monitor but that was only 200 bucks.. I would be raging if it was a top end video card.

    Good luck, it seems your luck can only go in one direction at this point..

    I have noticed this "return only for replacement" cropping up more and more at various e-tailers on products.

    Disappointing...

    I had recently bought a new router antenna from Zipzoom fly and it came with the little plastic cast already opened, it was in decent condition, but it said that it was new when I bought it.

    I swore to myself to never buy from ZZF again in my life.

    a mod must of added the "newegg"? I re-edited it to say zipzomfly
    but strangely the title will stay the same untill like a mod changes it...
    previouly I didn't specify "What the F***? A new X1900XT looks "used" / refurbished / damaged etc..." :D



    Yep this is a lame way of try to avoid returns or refunds...

    Woohoo! Can't wait to see your results! I've only pushed my X1900XT up to XTX levels cause of the first mishap. Whaddya say we both try to max out OD in CCC today, eh?

    you first

    Grats Neon Cowboy,

    I love my X1900. I know it was frustrating the first go round. When I got my first card I benched 3dmark05 then shut down the comp and went to eat. I came back and booted to a card with no video signal and the fan blasting 100%.

    I got it RMAed quickly and efficiently from Allstarshop. They determined the card was faulty the day they got it and shipped me my new one on the same. They were nice enough to ship another to me 2 day.

    Nothing like being excited about new expensive hardware to be disappointed. Well anywho I am straight now, and am glad you got your issues resloved.

    My current bests with the card at 702|850:
