Please let me know the veracity of the above mentioned company and the courier company. It seems that that they are making a fraud in the name of the similar courier company.
Sun Shape Troy, Michigan.
Pulled into have my windows tinted with my brand new car, so new that it wasn’t hard to remember that it only had 564 miles on the OD. After reviewing the work and as I drove onto Maple road in rush hour traffic I was shocked to see 580 on the OD. I was already late for a client meeting so I called about it the next day. Getting the response I guess I would have expected from a company that drove my brand new, sporty not another on the road sports car. “We wouldn’t do that”. So thats what I’m telling you—Don’t do that. Don’t go to Sun Shade, Troy location. Because smart people, “wouldn’t do that”. This Sun Shade store is privately owned and isn’t affiliated with other stores. Don’t let Sun Shade—block out better judgment.

I Have had my Xbox for about a year now (one of the Infamous). And I received the Three Red Lights, like...
When I purchased my E-Machines (Gateway) computer from Best Buy in December 06, I was told I would receive a...
Last week, I called in to see if I could get a power supply that works in India as I am planning to pack that for my son who is going to India. Call 1 (4/8/2007): In the first call the person said something to the effect that I need to purchase the whole system for India, when I was trying to see if I could but the power supply and Power cord, I got disconnected (my bad).
Call 2 (4/8/2007): So I call up again and explained that I had lost the connection and I was looking for a whole power supply kit that will work in India. The person responded if I needed a power cord or just the brick, I check the price and said send me both.
Today (4/13/2007): I received the prower supply only (not the cord and does not seem to be new, this is not the issue). When I checked the power specification, it is the same as the one I have (shipped originally with the console), so I call up the call center and say that I did not receive the correct power supply. After explaining couple of times and being on hold for several minutes for couple of time the person, told me that I will need to buy a transformed in India. (Initial this person did not even know the voltage in India). On which I said, I wanted to return this power supply as it is of no use to me. He tried to convince me to keep it and take it India, I said I do not want to carry two power supply as they are bulky and do not solve my problem. He then transfered me to his supervisor (I believe Allen), who after understanding my issues put me on hold for server minutes and came back with a answer that he has escalated it to Microsoft and it will take 5-8 day and I should hang on to this power cord. Then he said something that was troubling me.
He said that my request to use in India was made only today. This is ridiculous as the whole purpose of the call and to get the power cord was to use in India. He also added that he has reviewed the calls I have made and said that I have not told them that I wanted to use in India. When I asked him if he could replay my conversation for me he declined. I even confronted with him that I had a conversation regarding PAL and NTSC system on the first call.
Now, I have two question as a Microsoft customer what are my options.
1) Microsoft is selling XBOX 360 in India and don't they have original power supply that work in India.
2) Don't I as a consumer have a right to return an item that I have just purchased with a certain time period.
Son bought Xbox360 on the first day available 11/05. It has had two hardware failures since then, both outside of 90 day warranty. Both times we have insisted that MS replace unit at no charge due to State of Maine law prohibiting limitation of implied warranty/merchantability for up to four years of coverage. Incidental and consequential damages are also NOT disallowed.
MS customer service is an oxymoron. They constantly try to get you to think there is nothing they can do and that you have not choice but to pay for all repair costs. Yet, I have them picking up my defective unit at their charge and have them replacing it with a new one. It DID take six phone calls and much time on phone on hold and non-English foreigners AND emailing the VP for MS Customer Service and Support.
PLEASE check you state's 'consumer protection' laws - either on web or by calling - because MOST states have laws on books giving you BETTER warranty than that stated in owner's manual. GET a copy of the law and BE persistent and UNWAVERING in your demands. The place where you purchased it is ALSO EQUALLY responsible to the buyer! Bring it back for a new/replacement unit and BRING THE LAW copy.
IF you had items delivered - they MUST pick up at their cost or repay you for shipping back (incidental and consequential damages/costs).
DO NOT EVER EVER EVER PAY FOR EXTENDED WARRANTY unless you already know what your state covers. These RIPOFFS are the biggest part of the store profits for a given item - check out www.consumerreports.com to check this out!
