Defective and they know it

Maresa S., Newegg
21 March 2014
  • Pros: Powerful card, and able to run most games on high-ultra settings... for a bit
  • Cons: This card has a KNOWN voltage defect where the GPU emits a high-pitched electrical whine when running even the most basic games, resulting in computer BSODs, crash-restarts, display driver failures, artifacting on even just the Windows desktop, and even an inability to play YouTube videos without...

Gigabyte RMA Horrible

Anthony A., Newegg
20 January 2014
  • Summary: Don't buy
  • Pros: Handled games smoothly
  • Cons: Gigabyte repair is not worth buying this product. My DVI port went out so I sent it back to Gigabyte's repair center. After waiting two weeks, they told me that my board was warped and the warranty was gone. Now my GPU is broken and they will not work with me

Not worth dealing with Gigabyte RMA

Michael J., Newegg
14 January 2014
  • Pros: The card itself was excellent when it worked. I found the Gigabyte cooler to be a very nice design that kept the card cool while also being pretty quiet. I didn't bother trying to tweak or OC anything since I'm only playing at 1680x1050 so I left things stock and was thrilled! Everything was goin...
  • Cons: A full month after receiving the card I get an email from Gigabyte saying they can't repair it, but they'll offer me a R9 280X as a replacement. I'm fine with that and replied to their email saying as much. I don't hear anything for a week so I called them and apparently they're out of the replac...

Gigabyte's slow warranty support

DARLENE P., Newegg
26 November 2013
  • Pros: The card worked well until it sparked the VRM's repeatedly and finally died.
  • Cons: Card died in less than two months. Gigbyte warranty support is extremely slow to respond and correct or replace. I have alot of Gigabyte product and it performs well. I would hesitate to buy Gigabyte again based on their slow support response. In comparison Newegg support is instantaneous.

DID NOT HONOR REBATE!

Charles C., Newegg
16 November 2013
  • Summary: I have been a n\Newegg customer for years and purchased high-end Gigabyte motherboards in the past and have been very happy with their quality, which is why I purchased this Gigabyte video card. However, I am NEVER purchasing another Gigabyte product again that involves any rebate.
  • Pros: BEWARE. REBATE IS NOT HONORED. If my rebate had been honestly, this would have been a great price/performance deal but I sent in my UPC and paperwork within the time limit and selected a no-wait rebate. When I didn't receive my rebate after several weeks, I contacted the rebate processor only to ...
  • Cons: I purchased this with the understanding that the terms of sale (mail in the required paperwork and UPC and get a rebate back) would be honored in good faith. Instead, it has turned into a frustrating waste of my time and money. Now I am out $25, bringing my costs within range of a 7970 instead. B...

1 month of use and dying.

Charles D., Newegg
16 October 2013
  • Pros: Was a great card, WAS.
  • Cons: Been using this card for about a month now. For the first 30 days it was unbelievable but now has multiple problems with screen tearing and flickering during any game WITH v-sync turned on.

WORST GPU

Garrett A., Newegg
23 September 2013
  • Pros: NONE
  • Cons: Absolutely disgusted with Gigabyte and their inability to quality control their products. I will be sure to never buy again from Gigabyte. Screen tearing and flickering occur during every game regardless of settings. I thought buying a GPU that was almost 300 at the time would have some sort of q...

Buyer Beware, Games won't make it to you!

Wayne H., Newegg
13 September 2013
  • Summary: Based on many of the reviews archived with their cards, the whole Radeon/Gigabyte combination is a "Once we have your money, you're dead to us" setup. I wouldn't support this type of behavior for anything.
  • Pros: Card is a good card for such a crummy company
  • Cons: BUYER BEWARE!! Gigabyte and Radeon make a habit out of selling cards with game promotions, then never following through on them. It sells more cards I'm sure, but in the end they act like "you're the only person this has happened to, therefore you must be lying" when in fact it's a profit center ...

A great paper wait.

Robert H. McMurray, Amazon
9 September 2013
  • Summary: It was a great price for a new dealer from Amazon. It was slow coming and when I opened it it it was smashed, I wrote to the place about it and they replied? It was listed as it is when you bought it on Aug.16th. I checked the site and the email? It said it was new and not used.
