    Default GIGABYTE Announces ‘Just For U’ 1 Year Swap-out Service

    -- GIGABYTE Announces ‘Just For U’ 1 Year Swap-out Service --<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
    -- Promotion hopes to boost Australian sales of GIGABYTE EP45 U-series motherboards from May 1<SUP>st</SUP> to July 31<SUP>st</SUP>, 2009 --<o:p></o:p>
    Australia, May 1, 2009 – GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY PTY., LTD., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards today is pleased to announce the ‘Just For U’ 1 year Swap-out Service in Australia. This promotion targets purchases of GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 3 (U-series) P45 chipset motherboards between May 1<SUP>st</SUP> and July 31<SUP>st</SUP>, 2009 and allows the

    purchaser to register their motherboard for a 1 year swap-out service. Should there be any motherboard quality issues within 1 year of the purchase, the participant will be guaranteed a replacement motherboard of the same model number (or a similar model in the case of model’s that are no longer in production). <o:p></o:p>

    <o:p> </o:p>
    The GIGABYTE Just For U 1 year Swap-out promotion highlights the absolute confidence that GIGABYTE has in it’s motherboard product quality,” commented Alan Chen, Managing Director, GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY PTY., LTD. “ With GIGABYTE’s unique Ultra Durable 3 features and 1 year Swap-out guarantee Service, there can be no doubt that the GIGABYTE EP45 U-series are the most competitive motherboards in market!” <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    The key feature of GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 3 motherboards is their use of double the copper (2oz instead of the standard 1oz) for both the Power and Ground layers of the PCB. This dramatically lowers system temperature by delivering more efficient spreading of heat from critical areas, such as the CPU power zone, throughout the entire motherboard PCB. GIGABYTE’s Ultra Durable 3 also lowers the PCB impedance by 50%, which helps to reduce electrical waste and further lowers component temperatures. The 2oz Copper layer design also provides improved signal quality and lower EMI (Electromagnetic Interference), providing better system stability and allowing for greater margins for overclocking. <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    The GIGABYTE ‘Just For U’ promotion applies to the following models: <o:p></o:p>
    GA-EP45-UD3P <o:p></o:p>
    GA-EP45-UD3R <o:p></o:p>
    GA-EP45-UD3 <o:p></o:p>
    GA-EP45-UD3LR <o:p></o:p>
    GA-EP45-UD3L <o:p></o:p>
    GA-EP45T-UD3P <o:p></o:p>
    GA-EP45T-UD3R <o:p></o:p>

    I really don't see the difference between this and a standard warranty, like you get with any product.

    If your board develops a fault, you inform Gigabyte, and they'll authorise an RMA. You either get a repair or a replacement. Either way you get your board sorted.

    If you really want to boost sales in Austrailia, give them a price cut. There's a recession on.

    They should apply it to all boards from P45-UDx onwards and make it worldwide. They should also do a step up program, that would be nice

    that would be awesome! I wasn't knocking Gigabyte with what I said in my last posts, just an honest opinion. It seems like a reason to advertise more than an "amazing" selling point, as if you RMA'd you'd get a repair or re-conditioned unit any way. I trust Giga to send me a working board back (unlike some companies I can mention... COUGH Hyper PSU's... COUGH!), so if I were an Ausie, I wouldn't be jumping for joy.

    I'd be more like "Meh! Oh well, I'll open myself a tinny and have forgotten all about it within 5 minutes."

    That's an idea! Free beer with every UD3 technology board purchased! In a 2 oz copper can.... Awesome! "GigaBrew".
