Hello,

I bought 2 computers in September 2016 ( picked parts and used $50 PC builder option for both )

Fast forward to end of last month and one of them stopped booting completely. I tried what they asked on the phone ( pulling ram, hard drives, re seating / connecting everything )

I sent it back as an RMA and the Canada Post delivery notification says it was delivered April 5th around lunch time.

I've been on contact with the RMA/Tech support department twice, the first time they said they tested all of the parts and were sure it was the motherboard because all the other parts worked on a test bench, this was the end of last week.

I had a message sent to me Tuesday morning this week and said they hadn't gotten to it now? I sent a message back asking about the motherboard ( The MSI Gaming 5 Z170 seems to be out of stock now )

I asked what my options were, can I exchange this board? buy a new/different one? at this point I don't even care.... I'd almost rather have them box it back up and I'll get it done locally.

Having 1 person working the RMA/Tech support line is ludicrous. This is the end of the 9th business day the computer has been back in NCIX hands and I still have no information as to what's going on with it. ( First told motherboard, now told haven't gotten to it yet? }

And that 1 guy would probably agree with you. The economy is running on all 8 cyclinders in the Vancouver area and most companies are short staffed right now. Ask the fella who does the hiring at NCIX and he'll say there's a dearth of resumes on his desk.

For a busy place such as NCIX and considering them ordering replacement parts in (specific items) i'd guess 10 business day aka 2 weeks would be reasonable.

Concerning the one person stating they started it than stating it hasn't been worked on yet ... I don't know, sounds like an internal screw up, but what can you really do at this point. If you take it local, they might have the same wait for ordering parts in.

I don't blame the 1 guy at all. But it's gotten to the point where it's pathetic.

3 days, no answer to ticket.

Phone system that you can never get through, gives you a call back option, but the people who call back can't help with RMAs.

Chat system that has said 15+ people in line that stops working after 10 minutes just like the phone.

They need to step up their game, when you send back a $2000 system and have basically no contact from them for over 2 weeks, it's almost the definition of terrible service.

Well, coming to the end of the 12th business day since this was delivered back to NCIX. Have essentially got zero information about what's going on. 1 answer to a support ticket last Tuesday that says no update  and no answer back since then.

How long do I let this go for? and I mean what choices do I even have. It would be nice to know, but nobody answers the phone or tickets.
