    Unsurprising. They have a habit of baiting people into shelling out money for "tests" so that they can advertise compatibility. That way they profit whether the card works or not.

    would they at least offer the hardware at a discount for the buyer taking a risk as a guinea pig?

    Usually yes, but not much Example: testing a new GTX 1060 they would discount the price to 500 instead of 650

    23% discount is nothing to sniff at though...

    But what if it doesn't work? Will they take returns?

    i guess not. only route to consider is to sell off the card. but then without the possibility of vouching / demonstrating its full functionality... quite the conundrum!

    No. You test for their profit at your own expense.
