Toshiba, Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc. Product failure - terrible customer service Irvine California
*Consumer Comment: I agree with you...
I purchased my Satellite series laptop from Walmart. Toshiba only stands behind their product for 14 days. In that time period from the date of purchase you can return their product to Walmart. Shortly from the date of purchase the right click and scrolling option began to stick. Now less than two months of having the laptop I have no right click and no scrolling option.
I called the Toshiba "customer service" number. I was not dealt with professionally. These service agents were ignoring questions I asked so they could stick to their script. The customer service manager I spoke with couldn't explain to me why I could not have the replacement option versus the repair option that is written in the Limited Warranty booklet. She could not tell me how long to expect my laptop to be gone. She said that I may be charged for repairs. She said that from the day I was talking with her I would have 14 days to send my laptop to the service center or my work order would be cancelled. Why is Toshiba inconveniencing their unhappy customers?
They don't care. So much for their six sigma philosophy.
I certainly don't expect to be charged with repairing a product that I expected to work flawlessly for at least for 2 months. Also, why are customers responsible for paying to ship a laptop to a service center? Where is compensation for me while I wait for my laptop to be fixed and returned to me? I guess expecting a world wide corporation to really care about a customer who bought a $500 laptop is too much to expect these days. I will definitely spread the word about Toshiba's "limited warranty" and that they could care less about true customer satisfaction.
