Tigerdirect.com Complaint - Tigerdirect is selling refurbished/used laptops as new!!!
After spending $36,000 at Tigerdirect, giving them chance after chance, this time they really did it! I purchased 5 top of the line laptops this year alone. The last order before this one, a Toshiba at a cost of almost $2000. The laptop was a different model than I ordered, and came with a broken wireless network adapter. I am a computer engineer at the highest level so fortunately, I can diagnose my own problems. I also paid for a warranty that I never received, and after calling, they removed it from my invoice. My evidence is in my creditcard statements.
The other day was my birth day and awaited delivery of the top configured Toshiba Qosmio (the 505-880 model) with a total price of $2100. the box came beat up, and when opened it was not wrapped like Toshiba typically does. I turned it on, and no setup or anything. I went to the log, and saw that Windows was already registered and had been getting regular updates for a year, and there were many boot failures dating back all the way to a year. I contacted Tigerdirect and they hung up on me 3 times, and gave me a UPS return label to an address no longer in existance. The one manager Bernard, told me to never call back again, that I was not a Ph. D. in computer science, which I am, and they weren't going to give me my money back nor would they let me speak to the sales manager, Tony(in charge of all other managers). After all the money I spent with them, I had never been so disrespected. I will be taking them to court in spite of if they refund my credit card. I contacted Microsoft and Toshiba, both in shock. They are a complete fraudulent company. Date of purchase 6/11/2010
