Non-Howard Technology Solutions Branded/Third-Party Products

HTS makes no warranties for Software, or Non-Howard Technology Solutions branded products. HTS provides such product "as is". If you discover what you believe is a product defect for any third-party product, you may contact HTS within 21 days of receipt of the product for assistance. After 21 days from product receipt, warranty and service is provided by the product manufacturer and not by Howard Technology Solutions. Please note that products sold through the HTS website that do not bear the Howard Technology Solutions brand name are serviced and supported exclusively by their manufacturers in accordance with the terms and conditions packaged with the products. Howard's Limited Warranty does not apply to products that are not Howard-branded, even if packaged or sold with Howard products.

Dead On Arrival (DOA) Products

A Howard-branded hardware product is considered DOA if, within 21 days of receipt it shows symptoms of a hardware failure, preventing basic operability, when you first use it after opening the box. If you believe that your product is DOA, please call HTS Technical Support at 1-888-323-3151 within 21 calendar days of the invoice date. HTS Technical Support will determine whether the product is DOA and will process the request by either:

  • Replacement: HTS, at its expense, will ship another of the same product.
  • Service: A pick-up will be arranged with the end user for return of the warranty repair unit. The warranty repair unit will be repaired at an authorized HTS depot facility.

If HTS Technical Support determines that a returned product is not DOA and you have misrepresented a returned product's condition, a handling fee may be imposed.

This DOA policy does not apply to third-party products that do not bear the Howard brand name after 21 days of receipt. You must call the product manufacturer directly with any third-party product issues after that time for assistance.
