  • News: Getting a Refund on a Cache Drive

    Not long ago, PCWorld mentioned Corsair Accelerator SSD cache drives, designed to speed up access times on mainstream PCs. They sounded useful, so I ordered one from Corsair's website. When I received the unit, I discovered that it worked only with a Windows 7 PC, not with my Windows XP desktop. This information was not listed anywhere in the technical information on Corsair's website. I called Corsair's tech support, which confirmed that the drive works only with Windows 7 machines and said I should get a refund. I got an RMA [return] form and sent back the drive. However, instead of a refund, I received an identical replacement. When I contacted Corsair again, the reps offered to refer the situation to a manager if I would submit proof of purchase. I sent them a copy of the invoice I had re­­ceived direct from Corsair's website. A deafening silence has ensued. Can you help?­
