Sister-in- law has a 2 month old XPS that cost close to $3000 with all the
bells and whistles. The hard drive dies so she called Dell service. They
said they'd bring a new drive and motherboard on the first attempt. Showed
up with no drive. On the 2nd attempt, they physically installed drive and
left. No testing (could have been done before install I guess), no system
install, nothing else. Not much of a service in my opinion especially
considering the cost of the system. The good news is that she has been able
to dell with US support. Hope my 4600 stays trouble free!

They dont reinstall the os as it is hardware warranty (ie replace the
drive)
not a software warranty. Does not seem fair but is no different
than most other major companies.

I just thought it was odd. Then again, I've never bought a new computer from
anyone before so my expectations were off a tad. Thanks for the info!

replaced.

Keep in mind that Dell DOES NOT actually control the companies that do
the work. They contract it out to other outfits. The problem then is if
those techs have a clue. Dell may have sent the service a notice to
replace the HD and MB but the tech decided that the HD wasn't likely the
problem. OOPS.

Not a good idea to post comments when you dont really know, Dell has a
standing instruction to all 3rd party repairers to fit all parts ordered,
if Dell had ordered both parts and the Engineer had only fitted one Dell
would have marked to call down as a failed SLA,
with regards to the O/S install on a failed Hard Drive in the UK and I cant
speak for anywhere else in the world but Dell Tech always ask the customer
if they require an O/S install as well

Not really true Fixer. I only needed a little green lever to hold down
my pci cards. The catch wouldn't hold. Well the email tech said I
needed a motherboard replacement. When the tech got to my home he
agreed I didn't need the motherboard, called Dell and ordered a new
little green lever (whatever it was called) and came back the following
day to install it.

Regardless, it is Dell that is ultimately responsible for the quality(or
lack of quality) of the service provided.

Where can I find the data to back up this statement?
The only survey that I am seen recently was by Consumer Reports and they
don't seem to back up your claim. In fact they rated Dell about the same as
most others. Apple was clearly the "leader of the pack" when it came to
Technical Support.

Not right - the technician is a... technician, not a dumt part
swapper. If it's his oppinion he doesnt have to replace one of the
parts ordered, he doesnt do it, and he isn't blamed for not doing it!

Wrong again---we have three Dell computers.

And, not to start an argument, but I have as much right to be in this group

Now I understand why you believe that Dell Tech Support is still of the high
quality that it used to be. You base your opinions on asking of your "best
friends". >g<

My question was and still is; where do I find data to support the statement
that "95 out of 100 customers are happy with their
on site service from Dell" ? Not 95 out of 100 of your best friends. Had
you originally stated that "95 out of 100 of my friends were happy with
their on site service from Dell", I wouldn't have asked where I could find
the data to support your statement.
Just to refresh your memory about what you originally stated:

Anyway, I get the point. You can't support the statement that
95 out of 100 customers are happy with their on site service with data,
because you pulled it out of you know where and therefore there is no
supporting data that the rest of us can view.
Unlike, the Consumer Reports evaluation that can be read by anyone who takes
the time to pick up their magazine and read the article.
