All quality tested, complete build to order Workstations from Bargain Hardware are supported by a standard 3-Year Return To Base Warranty (excluding HDDs, SSDs, Batteries and GPUs). All internal HDDs, SSDs, Batteries and GPUs are supplied with a standard 1-Year Return To Base Warranty.

At Bargain Hardware we only deal with enterprise and business class hardware from the world’s leading manufacturers. Originally sold with lengthy 3-5 year warranties, the systems we sell are designed with robust architecture for the ultimate reliability.

Our standard 3 Year Warranty provides sufficient time to allow you to fully "soak test" your purchase and discover any unlikely, underlying issues. Modern systems have at most only a single mechanical part (the hard drive) and failure rates of the main electrical components (processor, memory and motherboard) are incredibly low.
