Dell :: Precision M90 And Accidental Warranty

Jul 17, 2009

Been lurking around these forums for sometime, unfortunately it seems my first post is slightly depressing.

I had an accident with the M90, cola spilt all down the back of the M90, and what made it worse is that it was done while i wasn't there, had left it to render. So don't know how long it was sitting in this puddle of coke, (I suspect the cat or toddler as culprits!).

Anyway, turned off straight away, phoned up dell as I wasn't sure if I had accidental warranty, bought item second hand, however I did transfer warranty successfully, shortly after point of sale.

Now it was only then that I found out the warranty included complete care, (my heart started beating again) and the service rep arranged a pick up for the following business day. Even though the machine had a next business day warranty, he said it could take up to a week as spillages often require long diagnostic tests. I wasn't fussy, I just wanted a repaired machine

Sony :: Accidental Damage Warranty

Jan 7, 2009

I'm sure this has been covered, but is this warranty offered in Canada? I can't find anything about it on the Canadian site, and the people in the stores don't know anything either.

Dell :: CompleteCare Accidental Damage Protection WITHOUT Extended Warranty

Dec 26, 2009

When I bought my laptop, I was offered 5 years of Dell Complete Care Accidental Damage Protection even though I only had ONE year limited warranty. This was all over Dell Chat online support.

The representative assured me that I did NOT have to extend my warranty past one year in order to take advantage of five years of accidental care.

In other words, I would have no coverage on manufacturer's defects past the first year, but if I dropped my laptop four years down the road, Dell would replace or repair it.

Dell :: OT: Is Extended Warranty Worth It For Desktops?

Aug 13, 2009

I know warranty is absolutely vital for notebooks, but is a large manufacturers warranty necessary for a desktop?

Usually the individual parts have their own warranty and you can replace defective and broken parts by yourself with the know-how (unless its a huge issue like a surge, etc) .....

Dell :: Extended Warranty Worth It? (3 Years Extend To 5)

May 3, 2010

I have 6 days to decide whether to extend the warranty on my Inspiron 9400. The laptop cost me 1200 ($1800) when I bought it. The extention will cost me me 109 / $166.

This will take my warranty from 3 to 5 years NBD onsite response. Anyone think this is a good idea? I am happy with the performance of my laptop.

Dell :: Accidental Coverage

May 20, 2009

I was thinking about the Dell Accidental Coverage.

What happens if you have a 3 or 4 year coverage plan and something happens to your machine in, let's say, the third or fourth year? Do they give you the same system again or do you get the "current" version of your old system.

Dell :: M1330 Accidental Damage Coverage

Dec 7, 2009

My M1330 recently took a spill. I accidentally knocked it off the cabinet when I tripped over the cord. Anyway, physically it is quite messed up, but it is still barely ticking.

Luckily I have accidental damage coverage on my system. If I were to file a claim, would they just completely refurbish my system, swap out my current system for a new m1330

Dell :: Square Trade Warranty Or Warranty?

May 16, 2009

I just recently placed an order for a Studio 1737 (replacing an Inspiron E1705). It comes with a 1 year warranty.

I'm debating whether it's worth spending $200+ to upgrade to a Dell 3 year warranty or should I get a 3 year Square Trade Warranty for less than $150 (I can get one for around $120 after a coupon)?

Sony :: Crack On The Bottom, Manufacturing Defect-or Accidental Damage On NEW VGN Z690

Apr 28, 2009

[url]

I have had the same issue with 10 days old Z690.

I found a small U-like crack around the bottom near the AC connector and the hinge are intact with the bottom housing.

I did not notice it was there after 10 days of use. Once I found it, I called Sony Customer Service to discuss about it , and I was connected to Tech Support for Repairing this unit. (I decided not to return it for credit since I already returned 4 Z690s for keyboard lifting issue for two, high-pitched noise, cosmetic damage and I got sick and tired of returning the VGN Z690)

here are some pics for the cosmetic damage (it is small but noticeable) and keyboard.

[url]

Once the laptop arrived in the repair center, they gave me an estimate of $161.40 for replacement of bottom housing.

I should have sent it back for repair
but I gave the repair center one last chance and tried to save some time on placing new order.
I received the laptop on April 20th.

But high-pitched noise started to cry out for my attention...
which did not existed before the repair.. I sent it for repair on 22th and
it is still being diagnosed....

Dell :: Xps 13 :: Would The SSD Be Worth

Jul 14, 2009

Would the SSD be worth the extra money on this? Can the GPU handle games coming out like Diablo3 and Starcraft2?

Is the heat issue fixed on this model? How is the battery life? Is there anything else I should recommend or take away from this let?

Any help or tips would be appreciated. He plans on buying next week. I'm still looking but this sleek design looks WAY better than the HP..

Dell :: SSD In A M1710, Is It Worth It ?

Feb 21, 2010

I've searched the forum but could not find a definite answer.

My wife is using my old m1710 mainly for photoshop and i have noticed that it's very very hdd intensive. She complains that it would freeze sometimes when working with a lot of files or with large files.

I decided to upgrade the HDD to SSD, but after reading here and there i saw different opinions.

Some say i will not see any increase in performance because the bottleneck is the SATA support of m1710 mobo, some say still there will be increase in performance.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 Worth Getting Now?

Mar 8, 2009

A Dell Studio 1737 OR the Dell Studio XPS 1640? The Studio 1737 has been out longer for any problems to be fixed and whatnot and comes at a lower price. The Studio XPS 1640 has been out for just a couple of months and there are dozens of reports of BSOD's, heating issues, etc...

I would like to get the Studio XPS 1640, but generally I wait about 4-6 months after the product has been released before buying. There are talks about a built-in TV Tuner, but I haven't seen that on the Dell website. People are also saying Dell is going to upgrade the video card .....

Dell :: Vista Ultimate 64 Bit Worth It From 32 Bit

Mar 31, 2008

Just recieved the copy I ordered from market place.

I've read that I can use the serial on my system (which is 32 bit) and it will go through, but was wondering if it's worth it to go 64 bit.

I currently have about 11 games installed on my M1730, and only thing that's stopping me is all the game saves.
