The truth about Axiom products and a manufacturer’s warranty.

It is commonly believed and there have been reported incidents where networking, storage, and computer system manufacturers, have informed customers that if third-party products or upgrades are being used in the system manufacturer's hardware application, the warranty for that system would be voided. The truth is, no third-party product voids the original system warranty, and in addition to anti-trust laws, it violates the Magnuson-Moss Act to coerce any consumer with this tactic. Regardless if the pressure or coercion is directed through a distributor or reseller, any tie-in provision that forces the consumer to purchase a manufacturer's own equipment or brand, whether the consumer didn't want to buy the product at all, or preferred to purchase the product elsewhere under different terms, U.S. laws are being violated.

The Federal Trade Commission's Magnuson-Moss Act protects consumers from the restriction that only the OEM products or services can be purchased or used in order to keep their warranty valid.

What does this mean to you? You cannot be required to add the Manufacturer's memory, hard drive, or other OEM branded upgrade or accessory to maintain the warranty on the system. Also, the OEM Manufacturer cannot state that the system warranty is void if other brands (third-party) are used.

For example: If you purchased a Proliant ML 370 Server and chose to install Axiom memory, or any third-party manufacturer memory for that matter, HP cannot void the warranty or refuse to provide service on your computer.
