Overpricing Issue at UMart and other Retail Alternatives for MSI GeForce RTX 3080
The team at MSI Australia and New Zealand responded diligently to a customer’s query. The complaint was regarding the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 GAMING TRIO set being sold under an overpriced tag. MSI confirmed that their GAMING X TRIO shouldn’t cost more than $1469AU. On the Aussie website however, it was priced at $1699AU. To most customer’s annoyance, the offer price was still not to the benefit of buyers at $1598AU. Unfortunately, MSI’s hands are tied as the Taiwan brand has no authority to control these sales under the Australian Law. The company suggests to look for alternate retailers that demand not more than $1469 RRP. The VENTUS 3X model from MSI is priced at RRP $1379AU.
