Dell very poor customer service

by villaconsulting / March 26, 2012 12:17 PM PDT

I am posting to show my frustration with Dell support and I am wondering if this is how Dell wants to keep its customers.

I have a Dell XPS1300 and it suffered the video graphics overheat as is so common, and after much discussion with Dell they reluctantly repaired it, and after 3 attempts they repaired and returned it to myself. Then some time later the laptop went pop and would not power up and after inspection its been noticed that the previous repair was very poor and not up to what I would expect from Dell. There were loose wires in the inspection areas on the underneath of the laptop.

So with this information I contacted Dell support in India and they were very dismissive and actually argued with me that it was my fault for not reporting the shoddy workmanship from the repair. I have to say that after this experience I would not recomend anyone to trust Dell to support its Laptops if they go faulty and certainly not to have any faith in the Technical support in India, they were just reading que cards and then dismissing my concerns.

So for me never another Dell and as I am also the engineering director for a very large FT100 company no more Dell for the company either. There are much better and cheaper laptops on the market and I can;t beleive that their customer service would be so rude and dismissive as Dell.

I will NEVER buy a DELL product. The last time I bought a monitor from Dell, I wasn't given on my credit card the price told over the phone. When I called back DELL I was transferred from one agent to another and after 5-7 transfers I got back to the starting point. I explained politely the situation to the last agent, and told him it was simply wrong what DELL is doing.

He apologized but the only thing he could do to help was to transfer me....


I just bought a MAC, what a good experience. Being new to the MAC, I had questions about setting up iCloud. Went online to set up a call from Apple. Apple called at the very time I requested. The agent was kind and understanding, and I had everything running by the end of the call. What a welcome difference!

Dell Fraud

Why can't I get my $250 Dell eGift Card refund?

Dell received my returned (Garmin Watch) on Oct 16 and still no refund. Dell sent me a UPS shipping label, after I spoke to customer service to authorize the return.

UPS Tracking shows Dell received my watch on Oct 16, 2015, UPS Tracking #1Z3V713R9094254063

It has been 7 WEEKS since Dell received my authorized return, can someone at Dell this? I have already filed a complaint with the FTC for fraud and you should know during 4 chat session over the past month I keep getting told I will have my refund in 3-5 days. Nothing but lies from customer service each and every time. Twice I was told it was being forwarded to the Financial Dept and was being rushed since someone at Dell messed up. Just check the numbers chat logs under my profile...horrible way to run any business if you actually value repeat customers.
