How about MSI? International warranty mean i need to to send back to Taiwan for warranty? i wonder local distributor will accept the warranty though. what i afraid is the product spoiled or damaged (physically) during the shipment to SG.

u can send the card back to amazon and they will ship a replacement. although its not 100% - im pretty sure they will waive your shipping fee from SG to USA if u politely ask...
their customer service is truly superb...never a disappointment.

Local distro will never cover ur product warranty (if it's, also not for free; they will charge exorbitant handling fee) bought from oversea even if it's international warranty

A very good example, tablet like Google/Asus Nexus 7. On Asus official website, it clearly written it has international warranty, meaning you can RMA anywhere in the world as long as the country has service centre. But sadly, such thing will never happen in SG.

Agreed.

I had a Kindle that went kaput after 6 mths. Chatted with their CSO. He authorised an immediate replacement. The replacement was sent out within 2 days. An order was created. I just need to access the order link, print out the free DHL return slip and sent my item to DHL locally. Better still, I only need to sent in my defective Kindle within 30 days after receiving my replacement. Amazon will email acknowledge receipt of return items. Superb service. Not sure if other rma is done this way.

Just a heads up, whenever big boys like Amazon show up. Ppl will cheer.

But in USA, some ppl get so addicted to Amazon they feel bad when their local stores start closing coz cannot compete. Maybe

one day...
our local stores start closing down will kock some sense into the REIT landlords, singapore rental is way too high

I think they are also using a cheaper international courier - Prestige Delivery. Tracking is sub-par compare to DHL or UPS.

For me, even got free shipping to SG, I rather pay to ComGateway to ship my items. I got zero faith left in Stinkpost.

You can't simply just blame the rental for exorbitant pricing.
Last year when i went to RMA a power suppply at local distro at Ubi, i saw Porsche Boxster and expensive mercedes (forget what model, certainly not ordinary c or e class) parked there.

Probably retailers at sls dont earn much, but distro business/profit seems to be very lucrative judging from the expensive cars there.

If you never receive, just talk to amazon customer service thru the chat system. They will handle it professionally by either refund you or re-ship with the fastest way of shipping available.

Like this, they will soon cancel free shipping to SG I predict. Too many fail delivery encounters!
