Rating + 1 VERY POOR

Before purchase I called them to confirm the Manufacturer Warranty status for the product I was purchasing (WD4002FYYZ). They put me on hold for some time while the party I was speaking to went someplace to verify the factory warranty status. When they came back they assured me that there would be a 5 year factory warranty as described for the product. I placed the order and when it arrived, I checked the manufacturer's web site ( and entered the product serial number. The resulting information displayed said that there was no warranty since this was an "Out of Region" drive.

Yes I would recommend this seller, fast fulfillment.
Shipping is what I'm disappointed with, package went out UPS then handed over to USPS witch added two days extra shipping time. I like packages to come UPS (not FedEx ground ) and letters to come USPS.

Rating + 1 Paid a premium for new and got used!!! Avoid.

I purchased a GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard due to Newegg not having any on hand from this retailer. Paid for brand new at a price of $232.89. When the item arrived it was in a brown box with good protection. I opened the box to find the Gigabyte MB box was very worn and no seal on it to prevent accidental opening. When I opened the box the first thing I saw was a owners manual for an Nvidia GTX Titan graphics card. I thought, why is this in there? My brother who was standing there asked if the card was in there also as a joke. I then pulled the actual owners manual out for the MB and it had been thumbed through, was bent up and had finger prints in it. Kind of dirty finger prints. I then removed the MB from its wrapper that the seal had been broken on and found scratches on the white and red MB shield cover. There were finger prints on the battery and you could tell it had been used. I am very disappointed with the seller and will avoid them at all costs. The only positive was I received it in a timely manner. I build and resale pc's and this was a specific build a guy wanted. I shot a couple of pics of the damage and he was willing to accept it although if it were me I would not. I am sure the scratches were caused by a fan heat sink since they are in relation to where the fins would be.
I will say this, the MB does run flawlessly and has a newly updated BIOS. I am sure there was an issue with it and it may have went back for testing and they updated it. Not really sure.
I will not be contacting PatinumMicro as the negative reviews for this company will probably not yield a good result. I will just give them a bad review and avoid them at all costs. Something told me to just go ahead and order it through Best Buy since they had them in stock and we are a Platinum rewards holder which meant any issue they ship me a new product no questions asked but I just placed the order through Newegg for convenience.

Rating + 4 Not what I needed, but the seller was professional about the return and refund

I ordered a pair of SAS drives from Platinum Micro, and then realized I needed straight SATA drives instead. Although I initially received no reply to a query about this through the Newegg site, an e-mail to the company resulted in prompt action to enable the return and a refund. Although it took an extra e-mail to get a response, they eventually acted very quickly and responsibly to process a refund for me. I would use this company again.

Had issues with shipping where the product was shipped using UPS and later transferred to USPS for mail delivery. The item was miss-delivered during the process. Contacted Newegg and they referred me to PlatinumMicro's customer service rep., they were quick to respond and resolved my issues in a timely matter! Was very impressed on how quickly and effectively the situation was handled.

Rating + 3 Update after not receiving item

Email received from PlatinumMicro on 06.23.16 @ 14:15 stating a refund has been issued.

Original rating was 1 egg.
+3 eggs for acting on my *2nd* request very quickly.
-1 egg for not reading, or at least, not comprehending the request.

The 2nd request was for a *REPLACEMENT*, not a *REFUND*.

And while a refund is at least *something*, it's not what I wanted, nor what I asked for.
Not to mention, it took 7 emails to communicate/confirm that the shipping address they had on file {from the first delivery attempt} was the correct one & had not changed... Wait, scratch that... That's probably why I was issued a refund & not a replacement because it was "too much hassle" to check the original shipping address & compare it to the address I provided, *2 MORE TIMES* {which was the same address}.

It's true what is said, "You can't please everyone." because overall, I'm disappointed with the level of customer service provided. I do appreciate the quick response & the refund, however, is a little competence & effort too much to ask for?
|I am leaving my original review below for posterity|
From 6/17/2016 7:11:42 PM:
This is both my 2nd shipping issue request *AND* my 2nd time attempting to post this review...

For the record, I would never have agreed to this:

"As requested by the sender, UPS has transferred this shipment to the local post office for delivery to the final destination."

For the simple fact that the USPS is, imo, unreliable for items larger than most envelopes.

Furthermore, this "transfer of responsibility" took place on a THURSDAY:
"06/02/2016 at 11:07 A.M. Package transferred to post office"

Here's why that's relevant: The original estimated time of arrival was FRIDAY, JUNE 3RD.

I see no reason for the seller to have requested UPS to deliver it to an, again imo, unreliable delivery service when there was still a FULL DAY to have it delivered to the correct address by a trusted delivery service.

If I have to submit a 3RD shipping related request, it will be for a refund. However, if I am sent a proper replacement, I will edit this review in a more positive light.

Rating + 5 Great Service

Only dealt with PlatinumMicro one time for one item, but they did exactly what I expected so I gave them the highest possible rating.

I thought about docking one point for not including the shipping number, but I was extremely impressed with how quickly they emailed me back when I asked them if tracking was included with my shipping. Not only did they provide me with the tracking number when they got back to me (an hours or two after I initiated my question), but they also told me exactly where my package was. They certainly did not need to take the extra few seconds to look up where my purchase was on its trip to my house, but it was greatly appreciated and those little things are what true service is about.

Anyone expecting a faster response time from an email is just being impatient, and yea, they could have included the tracking number sooner, but it didn't change the fact that they did exactly what they agreed to do when I bought from them.

Rating + 5 Great Product!!!

It shipped really fast, I had it in like 3 days. It was packaged pretty well. I was actually surprised at how sturdy the product is. Plus the sliders are made out of rubber, which is a plus. I will only be using 3 of the controllers to start off with but I will always have a couple more if needed.
