Package and Contents Inspection
Some people, in their excitement to start using that great new PC, peripheral or component they just received, forget an essential first step: inspection. It is important that you thoroughly inspect everything you buy as soon as you get it home, to ensure that you got what you expected and that nothing is missing. If you don't do this and later on discover a problem it will make it harder to get the proper corrective action.
Here is a list of specific items you should cover when doing an inspection of a new PC or component order:
After you are done with your inspection, set aside all the packaging materials, as well as any receipt or invoice. These should be retained for 30 days or the length of the vendor's money-back guarantee period, whichever is greater. If you don't save these materials it may complicate any efforts to return products to the vendor, should that become necessary.
