What does this limited warranty cover?
This NVIDIA limited warranty covers your SHIELD™ hardware product, along with any accessories received with the hardware product, ("Warranted Product") under normal use conditions for manufacturing defects or hardware component failures in your Warranted Product that is still within warranty. Accessories sold separately are covered by the applicable warranty accompanying the accessory. This warranty is for the original owner only and is therefore non-transferable, non-assignable and is voided when the Warranted Product is transferred to another party.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights and is only valid in the United States and Canada. You may also have other rights which vary from state to state or province to province.
NOTE: THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION/JURY TRIAL WAIVER PROVISION THAT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF THE BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER PROVISIONS AS DESCRIBED HEREIN.
For how long?
This NVIDIA warranty applies for one (1) year from the date of purchase of your new Warranted Product ("Warranty Period").
What will Nvidia do?
NVIDIA will repair, or if repair is not reasonably possible, replace your defective Warranted Product. Replacement parts and/or products may include new or refurbished parts or products and are warranted only until the expiration of the original Warranty Period.
