    It was by a live rep on the phone. Newegg seems be a cluster ****. I'm still waiting on mine to ship and I paid for expedited processing. Need it by Thursday for a trip and they are probably going to miss the delivery after I was guaranteed by 3 people I'd have it by Wednesday. Order from therm at your own risk. If they miss the delivery it's going back to them and I'm ordering from Donald from HID Evolution once I return from my trip. I'm very disappointed in newegg...

    It seems the news about this new Aero 15 recall is starting to become viral - several technology reviewers have published articles relating to the recall and urging new customers to return the units immediately for new stock replacements from suppliers or contact Gigabyte relating to the matter.

    Still no word from Gigabyte about this yet though, I wonder if they're keeping this as quiet as possible and only notifying the re-sellers to alert their customers of this to keep this to a minimum - giving the fact that all suppliers are willing to exchange the affected units for new replacements.

    Liam.

    All the articles I'm seeing are simply quoting the reddit post so it's still possible that the recall is an isolated event. In any regards, I hope GIGABYTE would put out a statement soon addressing our concerns...

    Just got a call from Newegg saying that their stock had been recalled by Gigabyte because the batteries may explode

    I canceled my order from Newegg. They gave me a $200 discount on an Aorus x7 v6 which brought it down to the sane price as the aero 15. Still not happy and I may return it but we'll see
