(Magnuson-Moss act) - Memory prices between 40% and 90% off the OEMs list price! - Approved means components listed on the OEMs AVL, not 3rd party components. - Overnight shipping on most products. - Lifetime warranty and 100% guaranteed compatibility on all memory products.
The router or switch will still be covered under SmartN## when using Approved Memory and GBICs. Approved Memory or GBICs procured from us are sourced from the manufacturers who manufacture this product for the said OEM. All products have passed the testing and qualification for compatibility and quality and are NOT Third-Party components. ACP-Memory Upgrades also offers a Lifetime Warranty and will overnight/cross-ship replacement parts for defective product.
On a purely legal issue: Memory Uprgrades often hears reports that a OEM representative has told a customer that using third party memory or hard drive products will void the systems warranty. Using this logic, the sales representative will try to coerce the customers into purchasing their own products, usually at much higher prices than Memory Upgrades is charging. This sort of threat spreads fear and uncertainty into consumers.
In legal terms, this type of ploy is referred to as a "tie-in sales provision." Such provisions are illegal. They are specifically prohibited in the consumer market by section 102(c) of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1995. In server, networking and workstation markets, such "tie-ins" can violate sections 1 and 2 of the Sherman Antitrust Act.

Some of our larger clients when faced with this issue have asked these OEMs to put in writing that installing Approved products into their systems would void their warranty. To our knowledge, no OEM has put that in writing.
