    Got a response from the Attorney General today. It was a waste of time filing the complaint.

    Go to the FedEx web site and you can pull a list of them there.

    Thank you for your thoughts, but the Asus would NEVER begin to suit my needs. It wouldn't run all the software I use for school/work, plus no optical drive to install anything anyway. Besides I payed $1,400 for a high-performance laptop, and I want it dammit!

    taken from Mr. Frank's new blog section (http://centerforclassactionfairness...howComment=1298553111135#c110196802592209708). lets hope the court approves the motion for an expedited hearing.

    once again, since things seem to be happening on Mr. Franks side, i would suggest NOT SENDING IN YOUR COMPUTER until we figure out what exactly is going to happen.

    i realize that some of you "want your computer now" instead of having to wait, but a little patience goes a long way and you COULD potentially be losing out on a better computer should Mr. Frank be successful and having the court orders enforced more effectively. imho, i would submit a claim and hold onto the letter if/when you get it until this whole mess is sorted out and we get more of an idea as to what the result of all this will be.

    patience guys, please.

    I received my approval letter yesterday. I will not be sending in my hp pavilion 17" dv9005us desktop replacement for a 15" compaq. I would gladly send in my faulty motherboard only for the 15" compaq, now that is an equal and fair exchange! I am going to wait this one out and hopefully Milberg and Nvidia do what they agreed to do in the first place.

    One would hope that the settling parties would treat all the class members fairly if the judge rules that class counsel and NVIDIA have not appropriately administered the settlement and orders them to provide a computer of similar kind and value. There is a risk, however, that NVIDIA will argue that, by signing the claim form and sending in the computer for replacement, a class member has waived his or her right to request anything more than the CQ56 that was explicitly offered.

    I cannot offer individualized legal advice, but someone deciding whether to send in for the replacement right away rather than wait a few weeks to see what the judge rules has to balance a few-week delay in getting a CQ56 against the risk of being stuck with a CQ56 instead of something better if the judge rules in favor of the complaining class members. (If the CQ56 is better than the computer you plan to send in, then the settlement probably isn't going to improve for you.) So long as your computer arrives by the July deadline, you'll still get your replacement.

    We've made a preliminary motion to get a hearing before the judge on March 14. Updates will be posted at Center for Class Action Fairness: Motion made in the NVIDIA GPU class action settlement

    Separately, I'm hearing stories that officials with the settlement administrator are telling class members that the judge explicitly approved the use of the CQ56 for all of the class members. This simply isn't true. Please share your stories about what the settlement administrator is telling you if you've complained to them about the discrepancy between what is being offered and what you were promised in the settlement notice.

    Although I can understand what Matt is saying, please review all available information and make the decision for yourself.

    If you are comfortable waiting, by all means do so, but if you need a replacement computer now for whatever circumstances you are in, you should get your CQ56 or Asus now.

    At the end of the day, you are responsible for making up your own mind and living with whatever outcome that may come out of this case.

    <rant>
    But keep this in mind; we all sit around and complain amongst ourselves how unfair the court system is and how greedy lawyers are, but we do nothing about it.

    At least for me, complain-but-do-nothing time is over; we have The Center for Class Action Fairness that is willing to put up a good fight on our behalf. Whether we win or not, we can at least give it a good try. If you can, join the fight and stand up and speak for what is right

    EDIT: Just realized tedfrank posted above about this issue. I'm pretty sure he knows more about the legality of the whole situation than I do :)

    We have waited this long. I'm for holding their feet to the fire; it's an opportunity to do something about injustice.

    The online form collection will close in 5 hours or so but I will keep it open a bit later if necessary to capture additional submissions.

    I suspect it will take couple of days to scrub and analyze the data and send out signature requests to a small subset population.

    To make sure that we have a closed communication loop, you will receive an email from nvidia411 (at) gmail.com stating whether or not your declaration has been selected for use.

    PLEASE DO NOT BE OFFENDED IF YOU ARE NOT SELECTED.

    If you haven't completed this form yet, please do so now.

    ** Tx1xxx model reviews needed **

    Ronk did an excellent job of summarizing key diff. between various models (click here for files and images).

    Can you guys review it for accuracy and if you found something to be inaccurate, leave a comment?

    thanks

    the tx2000 is not included in the settlement since it is an ati gpu.

    hmm, Im not sure on the specs since my tx1000 is a tl-58, but bottom is labelled as tx1000 with 2gb of ram. It seems there are so many variations of the tx series that they are configured all differently and not one will be the same

    I think most the information is correct, although I notices that for the TX1320 the bluetooth section is blink. I know that my tx1320us has bluetooth build in, so I think that all the 1320 model will have it as standard equipment. It is probably not a big deal, but just FYI just in case it is deem important.

    And Thank You for putting in the effort to get the website and data collection going. I haven't send my TX in in hoping that we get something fair as replacement.

    Even if i get a DM1z-3020us, I would be happy.

    The specs for the TX1410 seem to be correct. Too bad I didn't keep the first one I purchased. I purchased a "cheaper" model from Walmart, then took it back and paid the premium for the higher model at Staples. Silly me, expecting a product to live long enough to be worth what I paid for it. Now I'm told it's worth as asmuch as a low-end netbook. :eek:

    Just came back from traveling. Guys, like Matt said, please hold on and do not send in your computers even though you have got approvals. We promised to fight together. Then do not give up. Live together or die together -we need to fight against the unfairness!
