This Tuesday Legit Reviews looks into why ATI Technology reduced their warranty from three years to just a single year on many of their video cards.

ATI silently lowered its warranty from three years down to a single year on the majority of their desktop graphics cards, which has created some upset and confused consumers. The warranty change was found by consumers who visited the Warranty Service and Repair page on ATI's website.

If you are confused yet don’t worry as we will try to clear things up for you. Read on over here.
