Is My Factory Warranty Safe?
By +Rod Bland
All Memory, Hard Disk, Solid State Drive and accessory upgrades sold by RamCity are covered by either a lifetime warranty (for memory modules) or a full manufacturers warranty. They are manufactured to the same standards as the memory modules and other user replaceable components installed in your computer from the factory.
People often ask us, will installing third party memory modules, hard drives, or solid state drives void my original equipment manufacturer (OEM) warranty?
The answer is simple: Installing the correct RamCity-supplied memory module, hard drive or SSD, will not void your OEM warranty.
Extracts from the OEM warranty statements of some of the leading Desktop, Laptop and Server manufacturers are listed below:
