FUJITSU INSTITUTES NEW WARRANTY POLICY FOR PLASMAVISION
--Purchases Over The Internet Or From
Will Not Be Covered By Warranty --
FAIRFIELD, NJ-Fujitsu, the leader in
plasma display technology, today
announced it is amending its warranty for all Plasmavision SlimScreen
plasma display monitors. The new warranty coverage specifically excludes
Plasmavision® displays purchased through on-line retailers and resellers
who are not authorized Fujitsu dealers.
Tedd Rozylowicz, Fujitsu Senior Vice President,
noted: "We want to assure
that anyone who purchases a Fujitsu Plasmavision monitor gets the full
of their purchase. The only way customers can have this assurance of full
protection and unmatched performance is if they purchase a Plasmavision
monitor from an authorized dealer. The purchase and sale of plasma products
require an extensive amount of pre and post sale support, support that
be adequately provided over the internet. While there is an opportunity to
much more product by authorizing internet sales, we believe that by
our distribution in this way the Fujitsu brand, our authorized dealers and
users will benefit."
Fujitsu sells Plasmavision SlimScreen monitors
through authorized distribution
channels to ensure the highest quality product. Therefore, the warranty is
only if the plasma display monitor was purchased new from an authorized Fujitsu
dealer and the original factory serial numbers of the monitor have not been
removed, defaced or replaced in any way. Authorized dealers are not
to sell Fujitsu Plasmavision monitors on the Internet, through any on-line
or similar e-tailing web site, or whose serial numbers have been altered.
