Warranty and Return Policy

Homelab Hardware warrants its products to the original purchaser as follows:

All products we sell or have sold are warranted against defects and flaws. Fasteners that do not significantly compromise the integrity or functionality of the goods may be missing and do not constitute a flaw. Expansion port covers may not be present on all expansion ports and do not constitute a flaw. Scratches, dents, or blemishes consistent with intended prior use, transportation and storage prior to shipment and delivery to Buyer do not constitute a defect or flaw. Stickers, labels, and other cosmetic alterations consistent with legitimate prior use of goods by previous owners or seller do not constitute a flaw.
For products that are under manufacturer warranty, please contact manufacturers directly and follow their warranty procedures. Manufacturer warranty procedure supersedes Homelab Hardware warranty for its duration. If a product’s manufacturer warranty expires within 30 days of the date of sale, the product is warrantied by Homelab Hardware for the remainder of the 30 days if the RMA is filed after the manufacturer warranty expires.

All other products are covered with Homelab Hardware warranty for 30 days from the date of original purchase unless otherwise specified. Please verify warranty terms of your products with your Homelab Hardware sales representative. The exclusive remedy for this warranty is that Homelab Hardware will, at its option, provide repair or replacement components for this product. Homelab Hardware reserves the right to discontinue or change revisions, spare parts, models or brands, or to make substitutions. To make a claim under this warranty, contact Homelab Hardware RMA team at [email protected]are.com or online at www.homelabhardware.com. Complete RMA form and proof of purchase is required.

The warranty and remedies as set forth above are exclusive and in lieu of all others, oral or written, express or implied. In no event will Homelab Hardware be liable for any damages, including incidental or consequential damages, arising out of the use or inability to use this product.

Any implied warranties, including implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, shall be limited to the duration and terms of the express written warranty. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations may not apply. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may have other rights, which vary from state to state. Neither Homelab Hardware, nor the Buyer of the product, authorize any person to create for it any other warranty, obligation, or liability in connection with this product.
