LIMITED WARRANTY AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT FOR HYPERX PRODUCTS
This Limited Warranty Statement and Technical Support for HyperX Products (“HyperX Warranty Statement”) provides the warranty periods for HyperX products (“Limited Warranty Period”), and it only applies to HyperX Products. It is independent of any other warranty statements for HP Inc. products. Unless clearly specified in writing by an authorized source, this HyperX Warranty Statement is the only warranty statement that applies to HyperX products.
This HyperX Warranty Statement gives the original end-user customer, express limited warranty rights from the manufacturer, HP Inc. HyperX is a business division of HP Inc. For purposes of this HyperX Warranty Statement, HP Inc. may be referred to as “HP” or “HyperX”. The limited warranty applies only to the original end user customer and is subject to the terms and requirements described herein. Products that were already used prior to purchase are not covered under warranty.
Note: Physical damage is not covered under the HyperX Warranty Statement. Further exclusions will be detailed below.
HyperX Limited Warranty Period
The following HyperX Products are covered by this warranty for a period of two years from the date of purchase by the original end user customer: HyperX™ headsets (excluding the Cloud Orbit series of headsets, as well as any free promotional items included in the package), keyboards, monitors, mice, mousepads, standalone microphones, keycaps, wrist rests, and charging products.
Additionally, HyperX Products that do not fall within any of the categories described in this HyperX Warranty Statement shall be covered by warranty for a period of two years from the date of purchase by the original end user customer.
The following HyperX products are covered by this warranty for a period of one year from the date of purchase by the original end user customer: HyperX™ Cloud Orbit Series headsets and HX3D Custom Keycaps.

Discontinued HyperX Products
In the event a product has been discontinued, HyperX, at its sole discretion, shall offer to replace it with a comparable product, or provide a refund at the lesser of the original purchase price or the product’s current value.
Used HyperX Products
HyperX Products purchased used are not covered under warranty.
PLEASE NOTE: The warranty periods described in this HyperX Warranty Statement may apply to additional products that are not identified herein. If a product is not listed in this HyperX Warranty Statement, then contact HyperX or go to https://hyperx.com/pages/limited-warranty-statement, to obtain the applicable warranty period.
This HyperX Limited Warranty gives you, the original end-user customer, express limited warranty rights. To the extent that you have a separate written agreement with HyperX, you may also have other legal rights that this HyperX Limited Warranty does not exclude, limit, or suspend. Refer to “Country-Specific Terms,” if applicable, at the end of this warranty page for more information regarding your rights.
This HyperX Limited Warranty applies only to HyperX-branded hardware products sold by or leased from HyperX, its worldwide subsidiaries (collectively referred to in this HyperX Limited Warranty as “HX”), affiliates, authorized resellers, authorized distributors, or country distributors. However, non-HX manufacturers, suppliers or publishers may provide their own warranties directly to you. Review the applicable warranty statements for that product to determine your rights and obligations.
To the extent permitted by local law, HyperX guarantees that it will replace or refund, at HyperX's option, a HyperX Product that manifests a defect in materials or workmanship during the Limited Warranty Period, if you, the original end-user customer, provides HyperX with notice of a defect in your HyperX Product during the Limited Warranty Period. HyperX's obligation under this HyperX Limited Warranty, at its option, to replace, or provide a refund for a HyperX Product that manifests a defect in materials or workmanship ceases if the notice of defect is not received prior to the expiration of the applicable Limited Warranty Period.
The Limited Warranty Period starts on the date of purchase. Your dated sales or delivery receipt, showing the date of purchase or lease of the HyperX Product, is your proof of purchase, unless HyperX or your authorized reseller informs you otherwise in writing. You may be required to provide proof of purchase as a condition of receiving warranty service. For current warranty information, contact HyperX or go to https://hyperx.com/pages/limited-warranty-statement. Generally, for HyperX products, the warranty coverage ends at the 6-month, 1 year or 2 years from date of purchase, depending on the product.
Exclusions and Limitations
Some countries or specific states in America may not allow the following exclusions or limitations, so these exclusions and limitations may be limited in their application to you.

All Monitor models are not suitable for applications that exhibit static, stationary, or fixed images. Static images may cause image retention damage that may appear as stains or watermarks on the screen. This HyperX Limited Warranty does not cover monitors that are in use for applications that exhibit static, stationary, or fixed images for long periods or for 24-hours per day that result in image retention damage. To avoid image retention damage, turn off the monitor when it is not in use or use a power management setting, if supported by your system, to turn off the display when the system is idle.
Please see HyperX Pixel Policy Overview below.
HyperX Pixel Policy Overview
What is a pixel?
Short for picture element, a pixel is a single point in a graphic image. Monitors display pictures by dividing the display screen into thousands (or millions) of pixels, arranged in rows and columns. The pixels are placed close together so that they appear connected.
A full pixel is a combination of one red, one green, and one blue sub-pixel.
What are pixel and sub-pixel defects?
A full pixel defect is a bright white dot or very noticeable black dot on the display. No full pixel defects are allowed per HyperX monitor specification.
A sub-pixel defect is also referred to as a dot defect.
Bright dot sub-pixel defects are permanently "on", displaying a colored red, green, or blue spot on the display at all times.
Dark dot sub-pixel defects are permanently "off", displaying a black dot on the display at all times.
A different type of defect caused by microscopic contaminants within the manufacturing process can also be found. Contamination results in a dark "stain" covering one or several sub-pixels. They are not pixel or sub-pixel defects per say. No contamination is allowed under HyperX policy.
Dark sub-pixel defect - In this image, a dark spot on a white background results from a green sub-pixel, which is in the "off" or dark state.
Bright sub-pixel defect - In this image, a bright spot on a black background is caused by sub-pixels (in this case, a red sub-pixel) in the "on" state.
Debris trapped within the LCD structure can result in dark spots, but under magnification these are distinguished from an "off" sub-pixel, as the shape of the contaminating particle is visible.
Understanding HyperX Pixel Policy
The following policies apply during the HyperX limited two-year warranty period:
Bright sub-pixel defects
Dark sub-pixel defects
Total combined bright and dark sub-pixel defects
Full Pixel Defects pixel defects
In order to avoid the risk of charges for issues not covered by your HyperX Limited Warranty (issues that are not due to defects in materials or workmanship on HyperX Products), you will be asked to assist HyperX, or the HyperX authorized service provider as follows:
Provide true, accurate, and complete information when filing a warranty claim.
Provide an environment that meets HyperX requirements, including protecting products from corrosion, contamination, and spills. For example, to meet HyperX corrosion requirements, the environment must not cause more than 300 angstroms of corrosion per month on silver and copper.*
Verify configurations, load most recent firmware, install software patches, and run HyperX utilities.
Implement temporary procedures or workarounds provided by HyperX while HyperX works on permanent solutions.
Cooperate with HyperX in attempting to resolve the problem using online chat, email, or telephone. This may involve performing routine diagnostic procedures, installing additional software updates or patches, removing third-party options, and/or substituting options.
Remove any external options or accessories that would be subject to loss during the replacement process.
Perform additional tasks as defined within each type of warranty service described below and any other actions that HyperX may reasonably request in order to best perform the warranty support.
* HyperX's requirements are based on ISA G1 (mild) requirements as described in ISA-71.04-1985 Environmental Conditions for Process Measurement and Control Systems: Airborne Contaminants. This ISA standard is available at http://www.isa.org. When products are used in ISA G1 (mild) environments, corrosion should not be a factor in equipment reliability.
