WEST CHESTER, PENNSYLVANIA -- Hi everyone. I ordered my 16" notebook a couple of weeks ago. Soon after I ordered the product, I was told it was on back order. That's fine with me, I called customer service because I was trying to find the product description. When I clicked on the product in my order status the product description didn't show up. I think that's peculiar and a little unsettling. Well, customer service couldn't even find the product description at first.
When they finally pulled it up, one item, the size of the lithium ion battery was changed. DARN! I'm usually pretty good about copying the description onto a word document for my own records but that's something I didn't do this time. I know the original product description for "E208516-Toshiba Satellite A505S6997 Core2Duo 500GB 16" Notebook with Windows 7" included a 12-cell lithium ion battery. My son, the computer whiz, helped me research this notebook and remembers the description as having a 12-cell lithium ion battery too.
When I called customer service, the description they gave me included a six cell lithium ion battery. I feel helpless now. I still want the notebook because I think it's a good deal for the price even with the lesser battery. I just think there should be some sort of regulation here. If you go into a Best Buy and a product description is different than the product itself, they need to live up to the description otherwise it's considered fraud, yes?
The disappearing product description shouldn't exist with QVC. It's one thing to take the product off the list when it's on back order. That I get. But if you've ordered the product and are waiting for it, the product description should continue to show up with your order status. It seems too easy and just not right that a product description can easily disappear and then change according to the whims of either QVC or the manufacturer of the product after its been purchased by a customer.
The upshot of this message is that when you order a product online, make sure you copy the description for your own records and make sure to include the entire page so there's no question as to the validity of the page you copied. Is there anyone out there that ordered this particular computer? Did you get the 12-cell lithium ion battery? I'd appreciate it if you'd let me know. Thanks!!!
I've been a QVC customer for about 20 years, and I've seen the quality of many of their offerings, especially clothing and bed linens, getting crummier and crummier. I purchased an item a week ago (Citiknits crop pants) I was really surprised at the quality of the fabric - it was really thin and cheesy, and certainly not worth the $40+ I paid, so back it went.
I tried to post a comment about this item, and was notified by QVC that my comment didn't meet their criteria, and would not be posted. Guess they really don't want honest criticism, and I can't see that I'll be purchasing much more from them. I've returned the last few items I purchased, simply because the quality was not there any longer. Sad...
WEST CHESTER, PENNSYLVANIA -- I purchased this pre-lit Christmas tree from QVC in November. When I assembled it for Christmas, I found a naked bulb harness hanging off one of the strings of lights. There's no way the light string should have passed inspection before it went on the tree, and there's no way the person wiring them to the tree didn't see them, which means they were too lazy to take them off and start over (made in China, of course). I complained to customer service (they do not have a straight-up email you can use, just a web form, first of all), and I wrote a bad review explaining all of the above, and suggesting that QVC and their supplier might want to review their quality control.
My review was turned down because: a different product is also mentioned in the review, content is inappropriate or unrelated, information focuses more on a service issue rather than a product...all of which is bull, because it DID focus on the product, DIDN'T mention something else, and certainly had no bad language in it. Obviously, criticism of QVC and their supplier, Bethlehem Lights is not accepted. I've written another review just stating that the tree is a fire hazard and I would not recommend it. If they turn THAT one down, I KNOW they're filtering their reviews, and are trying to make their shoddy Chinese products look better than they are.
DO NOT buy anything from these people, I've never gotten anything from them (all gifts, I assure you, because I'm NEVER buying anything from them again myself) that didn't fall apart, was bad quality, broke after a few months use, etc., etc. I sent their Customer Service department another email complaining about the tree, and flat out informed them I was going to rip them one everywhere I could find a website to do it.
WESTCHESTER, PENNSYLVANIA -- Yes, if you don't pay your electric bill, it gets shut off. However, when you do pay, it is turned back on. QVC on the other hand NEVER forgives a financial problem or mix up, even mix ups that occur because of their employees. QVC handles such issues by banishing good people forever!
DETROIT, MICHIGAN -- QVC is the worst company I have ever had an experience with. I ordered this item for my boyfriend for Christmas two weeks before Christmas. The item was not even ready to ship until 3 almost 4 weeks later. Then they wouldn't ship the item because I used a debit card card instead of a credit card. This was the worst situation I have ever been in. I will never order from QVC, ever again. There are better sites than this overpriced garbage!
NEW JERSEY -- I was a customer, now and then but because of this thing and the stupid stand you have taken I will be going elsewhere for items. Not my choice but your stand has forced me and my fellow sr's to walk away from you. I would hope this would cost you many monies, but we could be so lucky Paula Dean was on set for that. You did what you did you are (I'm a lady). Words should never come out of a 73 year old's mouth, you are ** and I mean every word.
1200 WILSON DR, PENNSYLVANIA -- I ordered two skin care products and returned both. QVC products are expensive and shipping is VERY slow. I thought I was getting high end quality, but I was wrong. The ratings on my items were 5 star. Skin tanner streaked, yes I followed directions. Philosophy's newest body cream smelled like plastic. Still had 5 star rating, but if you dig way back into reviews I found a lot of one star ratings on the bad smell. Honest rating would be nice. Disappointed.
