Sweet RMA: 20 to 30 days
Remember the memory issues I had some weeks ago? Well, I decided to buy some replacement memories and this monday I sent the old ones for RMA. Because this is Thursday and I didn't hear back from anyone, I sent an email asking for information. The answer I got: The memory RMA takes between 20 to 30 days.
I feel like a fool defending this shop back then and I feel like I live in a 3rd world country. 20 to 30 days to RMA two dual-channel DIMMS. I'm still trying to digest the information. One full month... unreal!
My mom spends 6 weeks a year there and she is told not to drink the water. What's up with that??

It's in the Algarve, where Cliff Richard lives, lol. I haven't been (yet), but it sounds very pretty.
Ah, it's possible yes. Some small pockets in the Algarve region are also badly served.
Yeah, it's a pretty region. However, it lost most of it's natural setting. With the exception of the coastal line which is kept pristine (for turism reasons), the remaining of the region has lost to construction (for turism reasons). You gotta appreciate the paradox.
Personally, while I couldn't stand living away from the ocean for more than a few months, I'm more partial towards mountainous and inland regions when it comes to my own trips. The North of the country has a lot more unspoiled (YMMV) natural beauty and culturally significant icons in my opinion. But granted, that the coastal algarve is very pretty with its rather unique limestone formations, secluded beaches and clean waters. Nice down-to-earth folks too.
20 to 30 days is certainly good. A friend of mine had his brand-new SSD chuck it in, RMA took 6 weeks (And I live in Australia ;-), which last time I checked, wasn't third world...)
Hmm... I remember my laptop failing me in Australia and it taking 3 weeks to get it returned to me (Toshiba). They RMA the motherboard, all the way in Japan. Sure your friend didn't get the short stick?
