don't buy shit from dell

Recommended Posts

a while ago i figured i needed a new laptop. so, i bought one. from dell.com.au.

 

we sent the order on sep 5. they said they received it on sep 6. they say the estimated delivery date is 7-10 days from the order received date.

 

10 days past the order received date, and they decide it'll be a good idea to change the date that they received the order, now claiming they received it on sep 12. i'm not even sure how that's possible, so time to ring up and complain.

 

we now get an estimated delivery date of sep 26. annoyed, so time to ring again to find out why the bump.

 

apparently they don't have any hard drives to put in, so the estimated delivery date is now oct 5.

 

oct 3 - laptop arrives at local carriers.

 

they're meant to call you beforehand to organise a delivery date. oct 5, 6, 7 rolls by with no call. time to ring up and complain again.

 

lot's of yelling later, and they don't know what's going on. they say it will now be delivered oct 12. oct 11 they call and say it will be delivered oct 15. oct 12 they ring up and say it will be delivered oct 16.

 

oct 16 rolls up. to be delivered between 1pm and 5pm. this has been one long awaited day. sitting at home, doing homely things, but nothing comes. nothing. time to ring up again.

 

now dell think they're so smug because it's not their fault, it's a problem with the local carriers. fucking cunts. after yelling at them and telling them it's their problem, they agree to call the local carrier to organise delivery, and give a one hour notice on oct 17.

 

and then it finally comes. got a free printer with it, but could've done with more.

 

don't order shit from dell. don't.

i could have told you not to order from dell before you went and ordered from dell and you would have avoided the whole issue.

Dude I deal directly with Dell shit changes with them daily they miss stuff constantly. They tell the customers what they can v.s. giving the customer something they need. We have had all the companies we sell too turn back to HP after dealing with dells bullshit.

 

Fuck Dell they suck fucking ass this is coming from a corporate dealer standpoint...
