    Proof of purchase IS required.

    ADMIN – Hi Ta,

    The form reads as follows:

    I DO NOT have a Proof of Purchase number, but I would like to file a claim online.
    I DO NOT have a Proof of Purchase number, but I would like to download a personalized claim form, print it out, and mail it in. (You will only be asked to supply contact information.)

  2. Courtney says:

    Admin, it says threw out the claim form that you can file without the documentation, but there is a glitch and if you try to proceed forward, even after selecting the choices stating that you don’t have a document to upload, it will not let you through this site and it tells you that you have to upload documentation first before proceeding. It is a glitch

    ADMIN – Hi Courtney,

    I will send a note to the class action admin to let them know.

  3. Courtney says:

    It still asks for uploading proof of purchase, no matter what online filing option I select 🙁

  7. chris says:

    Proof of purchase documents are still required, no matter which option you selection

    ADMIN- Hi Chris,

    I am looking at the no proof of purchase path and it reads “I do not want to upload documents”

  8. Andy L says:

    I have purchased 2 units, with receipt proof. Do I have to submit twice?

    ADMIN – Hi Andy,

    I think so. I looked at the form and it seems to be designed for single item submission.

  9. Emily says:

    You are required to upload documentation (Proof of Purchase). Please choose the Upload option in order to continue with your claim.

    after I clicked on “no I do not want to upload documents”

    ADMIN – Hi Emily,

    Please reach out to the admin of the settlement to let them know about this problem.

  10. Patty Tillman says:

    I lived in California during the claim period and purchased a Vaio. I no longer live in Cali, I moved to Texas. Am I still able to file a claim?

    ADMIN – Hi Patty,

    You are a Class Member if you are a California resident…
