The saga continues! Asus repair called and said it would be stupid to repair a new device like that and recommended I return it or RMA it. I agreed, so I went to the store with my original receipt and engineer statement in hand. Of course, their defective policy is only 7 days long. It broke after 14, of course. I calmly explained that they really want to help me: In a period of two weeks, I bought a router costing over a C-Note and a monitor costing over eleven of them. There are a lot computer shops in the Golden Computer Centre, they should want the kind of customer who is going to buy a GTX 1080 Ti on a whim while on the way home from the grocery store as their customer.

Last week I turned an invoice for USD35,000 into the person agreeing to nothing, taking me out to dinner and drinks and paying for a hotel room and then a limo to take me home from Dongguan. I negotiate for a living.

So the store agreed to a compromise. They're working with Asus' distributor in Hong Kong directly and I should receive a call within 24 hours confirming when the new unit will arrive and the old one taken away. This should result in a faster replacement and return, with no dealing with automated help lines.

well that's interesting. here in the states if you want to RMA something you contact the manufacturer and they give you a shipping label (if they're a good company, or if they're Roccat they make you pay to ship their defective junk, three times...)

sounds like you're getting it handled though so that's good. Best of luck on the replacement.

I worked with (Read: Reminded that Americans like guns) the retailer to have the distributor come and resolve my issue. Asus arrives tomorrow afternoon to replace the unit. As such, I am back on my old TN 30" 1080p screen and every moment is agony. The difference between standard width widescreen as well as that of the resolutions, to say nothing of this early sword and sandals film color, can be ranked at a 6 on the below scale.

The new unit arrived! Hours late but it got to my flat. I've met a lot of delivery guys in my life and this one was by far the smelliest, something I track in a little notework I keep handy at all times: "Rommel's Olfactory Log" the front reads. I'll report to its working condition once I get home and set the monster back up.
