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) .....

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 :: Problems With Extended Warranty

Feb 25, 2010

I have 3yr extended warranty with accidental damage, onsite next buisness day service including weekends.. I called on Tues Feb 16 to have the motherboard(card reader and head phone jack) dvd drive, and blown speakers fixed. The tech didn't show up till Monday the 22.They didn't send the speakers so the tech called to reorder the speakers and a another item that he noticed. He called back on Weds to tell me that the other items arrived but no speakers. He called Dell back and called me back last night saying Dell wanted to ask me about depot service. I have a newborn so I didn't get a chance to call till today. They said they would resend the speakers that they failed to send 2 times in a row. I'm mad because I paid for next day service and 10 days later it is still not fixed. What should I do?

Dell :: XPS 1530 Graphic Card Extended Warranty

Jan 5, 2009

This has been discussed in a few threads but I cannot find anything on dell website.

I tried the chat and the rep I talked to played dumb with me, saying he never heard of any problem with the graphic cards.

Could you guys tell me how I can figure out if the graphic card does have an extended warranty? Will I get any documentation mentioning it

Sony :: Vaio Extended Warranty

May 18, 2009

Last august i purchased a vaio sr from sonystyle with a 3 year express ship extended warranty w/out ADH. I assumed that this warranty would be automatically linked to my laptop serial and i would just be able to call up sony and initiate a repair after the 1 year manufacturers warranty expired. However,

from reading forum posts it seems I was supposed to have received warranty documents and I was supposed to have activated the warranty within a certain time period. However, these documents weren't included with my shipment

Dell :: M1530 UKDo I Qualify For 1 Year Extended Warranty For Gpu?

Mar 18, 2010

Hello, sice the news about faulty 8xxx gpu's I have been hearing that Dell is offering 1 year extended warranty for gpu faults.

Example:

http://www.zdnet.co.uk/news/desktop-...ault-39463022/

I have bought M1530 on 28th of April 2008, together with 1 year warranty. It expired on 28th of April 2009, however from what I am reading I qualify for 1 year extra GPU warranty, am I right?

But when I phoned Dell (it was when my AC adapter broke and needed replacement) on each occasion I asked about this extended warranty and they were always telling me that they never heard of it.

Am I being lied to? Or are they right? When I check the servicetag status of my laptop it says that warranty has expired and there is no extra warranty there (if there was it would apply till 29th of April 2010).

Please can someone explain it to me?

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.

Sony :: Post-Purchase Extended Warranty

Jun 2, 2009

Just received a Z610y as a college graduation gift, but it was not purchased with an extended warranty. I'm accident-prone, and am interested in a 3 year extended warranty with ADH.

I talked to someone at Sony Style who said I could purchase the warranty up to 30 days from the date of sale. I noticed newegg.com has one for sale, but when I talked to an associate there, they said it was only for sale with the purchase of a new laptop.

Sony :: Credit Card Extended Warranty

Apr 21, 2010

Just an FYI. I recently bought a Vaio NW from Best Buy using a credit card. I always use my card to pay for day-to-day expenses to collect the miles. I called the card company and they told me that they automatically extend the manufacturer's warranty for an additional year (effectively doubling Sony's) and if the computer is damaged due to mishandling or some other unfortunate incident, they will repair or replace for free. I did not pay any additional money for this.

Now, I don't know how good their repair services will be and I hope to never find out.

But I am glad that I did not spend the large amount to extend the warranty through Sony or Best Buy. Food for thought for you. It may be a good idea for all of you to check with your card company to see if they cover you.

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)?

Dell :: Sleeve For Studio 15 With Extended Battery?

Dec 5, 2009

My aunt has the same laptop as I, and I have her name in our family drawing for Xmas... and she's wanting a nice sleeve.

She already has a laptop bag, she just wants something smaller for a quick "up and go" where she doesn't need her accessories, charger, etc.

I've looked at a few and I think they'd be close -- it's just that the extended battery makes the back end awful thick, which worries me.

Soooo I was wondering if anyone has actually purchased or used a sleeve with their Studio 15 with the extended battery, and if so which brand/model.

Dell Studio 1749 :: Extended Battery Life Gone

Jan 6, 2012

I had to reset my Studio 1749 to factory defaults and now the option for "Dell Extended Battery Life" within the Dell Battery Meter is gone. I don't know what needs to be reinstalled in order to get it back.

These are the changes that might affect the issue:

- Installed a different WiFi-Card (Dell 1520)- Installed a different Tuner Card (Yuan, provided by Dell)- Installed Service Pack 1 for Windows 7- Flashed BIOS to A08- Updated all Drivers and Utilities from the Dell Homepage except for the ATI-Driver

I think it is a useful tool if you use your notebook on battery, because it is able to control a few options that are not available in Windows 7 default power plans.

HP/Compaq :: Extended Batteries

Speaking of batteries, has anyone found a good outlet for extended batteries. I can't seem to find one for the HDX 18. You'd think manufacturers would make them readily available for these desktop replacements. Even in economy setting I barely get 2 hours before my regular battery runs dry.

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.
