Just sharing general info.. Apparently all MS devices are sent to Jabil if repair/replacement is required. Then Jabil will send defective set to overseas. Entire waiting duration should takes about 7-8 business days to come back to you. Crossing my fingers now.
Isn't this third party then ? MS so big why cannot take care of all these repair/replacement need to ask third party to handle ? What if quality of service not good sia... can only bite the bone ?

Those interested in Surface 2 can check out the deal at Harvey Norman tech expo. They are selling the 32gb model for $588 and it comes with a Creative Airwave Speaker, stylus, earpiece and screen protector. Quite a good deal if you ask me.

Good deal but is it the same wacom stylus like sp1/ sp2? N memory size v small. Once you add video n audio, the 32 gb will peng san.... Though the sd card slot will make some space.

Will be receiving my refurbished surface 2 from Jabil courier tomorrow... Quite disappointed that I am getting a used set because the replacement SN is much lower than the one I sent(i just checked on myservice.surface.com). Definitely unfair for a consumer like me whom owned it for 12 days only.

Optimistic thinking, refurbished devices are checked before sending whereas new devices can't be checked as they are in retail packaging.. I will update again to share with you guys on their warranty exchange.

He's right, I believe they did a general QC but not a thorough QC. Hence the set I received was one of the few that has issue.

oh ya. I heard from Surface support team that although the exterior looks used but the parts' firmware in it are newer than brand new sets' as they are they are assembled long ago. (not sure if its true or just to make me feel better)

Must send back
Good thing its a tablet so its light
At most 2-3kg

No international warranty
You need to see if the savings is worth the hassle

E.g There are tablets that costs twice the price in SG vs USA for a 1 year warranty. In that situation, i'd rather buy 2 tablets and sacrifice the warranty

AFAIK, as long as SP2 has not been officially launched here, there will NOT be any warranty claim from local service centre. Not sure if they're even willing to repair with a cost...

Also, have you guys even consider if MS may not even launch SP2 here or any more countries due to biz strategy change...? If this is the case, those who imported it from US/HK/JP will be on their own with any technical issues.

If you really need one, guess gotta consider either Surface 2 or other tablets...
