Very bad HCL after sales support

Hi !,

I have purchased a HCL ME U2 Tablet (No. 113YFD027120) on 14.07.2013 and after around one month of usage it occurs a line on the screen.

After consultation with support centre, I went to authorized repair centre ‘Image Service’ 17AX, Model Town Extn. Mkt. Ludhiana, Ph : 9356040095 and deposited my tablet for under warranty repair on dt. 23.08.2013.

I was told that it will get repaired with in 4 to 5 days, but when I contacted after 3 –4 days, I was informed that there is a problem in display and requirement has been raised to HCL for procurement of part and will take another 10 to 15 days to receive the material and better I should take back my Tablet and start using till receiving of mentioned part from the company. But I didn’t picked the Tablet and it is lying at the service centre.

Now even after more than 24 days of followup with service centre and HCL Help desk, i was told to wait for another 7-8 days.

No one is there to hear / help, i bought the HCL product not because of performance but for after sales support. Now i think i should have bought Chinese Tab, which is better in performance and for any issues i can rely on local market immediate repair without looking for any gurantee / warantee.

Very very bad experience.

HCL Tablet: Request not to buy HCL products

My experience with HCL TAB Y2 (Serial Number:512EDR019171) :

I have HCL Tablet Y2 and faced logo hanging problems.The tablet used to hang at ME logo on power on.
The software upgrades thrugh SD CARD didnot work and then I went to service center at Andheri(E),Mumbai.
Since my tablet was out of warranty , I paid INR 650 for repair. HCL service center loaded firmware and said now this MUST work.In 4-5 hours I again faced HCL logo hanging issue and had to go back to service center again.
HCL service center again installed new firware (they said so, I dont know if they really installed new or old) and said now this should work. It worked for 1 hour & the problem was again seen.

When I reported this back to the service center ,they said "Sorry you need to change hardware and it will cost INR 7000". What a bad support HCL has ?
I assume service ceter was very well aware that this probelm can not be resolved and unnecessarily they made me pay for repair.

Frankly I feel HCL is nowhere competitive in this market and with choices of Lenovo, Apple, Micromax, SAmsung ,& many chinese players noone should take risk of HCL.
Not only the products are bad but their service is further frustrating. They charge you huge amounts for such useless products.

Please donot buy HCL products.

HCL tablet "U1" _ Pathetic Product, worst company and Rude People

date: Sat, Sep 7, 2013 at 11:10 PM
subject: Re: URGENT - Complaint - HCL Tablet - Serial No. - B12STN009701
mailed-by: gmail.com

Dear Mr Shiv Nadar and HCL Team,

I am writing this mail after giving up with the worst product and pathetic service HCL has given me. I bought
a HCL tablet "U1" in late July 2013
and since then my life has become hell and majority of my time since then is spent in either going personally to the service center of HCL or calling the untrained and rude customer care staff of HCL. This tablet did not worked even for few days and we registered complaint ( Receipt # 20744) back on 10th Aug 2013 and since then my tablet is with service center folks. I have been to the service center personally thrice since then but the experienced and skilled executives are not even able to tell when they can fix the issue and give it back. I have called numerous times to customer care but i only feel frustrated after talking to someone at customer care. One of the great staff member of HCL asked me "if your tablet does not work, whose lose is it" ... I told its your lose...i only spent Rs 5000, but i will spread the word to 5000 people and it will impact your business many folds then my loss.

Is there any kind of SLA for this ? or customers are supposed to wait till eternity ? I did not expected this from a "branded" product like HCL but the product and the service is worst till date. I also wrote to the nodal officers and the official complaint email ID's but looks like entire company staff is on leave or sleeping that no one even care to respond me. I can only say "Pathetic product and worst service" has been rendered to me so far.

Can i expect a positive response from the management team of HCL. Product is in warranty at least in papers and i will definitely approach consumer court if i am not heard even by HCL's management team. Looking forward to get my issue resolved at the earliest.

I am sorry if i sound harsh but thats the voice of a frustrated customer.

Thanks & Regards,

All office bearers of HCL,

I feel sorry to be one of the frustrated customer of HCL wherein i did the mistake of buying a HCL tablet "U1" in late July 2013. This great product did not worked even for few days and we registered complaint ( Receipt # 20744) back on 10th Aug 2013.

Since then, we have not heard back anything from HCL. I went to the service center twice since then but i am unable to get any response from the service center. I have been calling regularly after that but most of the times phone is busy which exhibits that HCL is producing low quality products and seems most of the customers are all the time calling to get rid of the product.

Is there any kind of SLA for this ? or customers are supposed to wait till eternity ? I did not expected this from a "branded" product like HCL but the product and the service is even poor then a chinese product. I appreciate this issue to be resolved within 48 hours from now OR i will have to file complaint with consumer court as i am clearly cheated and feel frustrated.

Looking forward to hear back soon with a positive note. Attached is a copy of service complaint receipt.

Thanks & Regards,

Subject: Query/complaint no 8502783176

Dear Executive

I have purchase my HCL ME TABLET Y1, Bearing HCL S/N:- A12MYS000940, and
IMEI No:- 911246000009404.

I have reported the complaint of USB not readable with Query/complaint no 8502783176
on 1/5/13, and have visited HCL gallery at Mobile point, Thane, Maharashtra
on 13/5/13.

The mobile point person told me the USB isnt working and you need to replace the
same and will charge me Rs 650/-, which i agreed, he told me he will repair
the Tablet in 1 to 2 hours and told me to wait.

As i need to go for some other urgent work, i told him i will come tomorrow
morning. When i visited next day (14/5/13) at the gallery the person told me
that they have send the Tablet to Vashi Gallery for repair, and told me that
they will give me a call. Again i visited the Gallery on 16/5/13

Since then its now 31/5/2013. They havent called me neither they pick up the
phone numbers mentioned in Mobile point invoice.
(As from the gallery ambience i have a feeling that my tablet
will also be thrown in garbage, which they have done for others tablet).

At last i received my tablet which was not fully repaired on 13/6/13,

Again the problem increased so i visited HCL Gallery, Andheri, Mumbai, Maharashtra on 27/7/13 and with service order no. 8400232877

They told me it will take a week, but now its again almost a month with
today date 30/8/13.

Tell me what should i do, The mobile phone galley is almost 2 hours distance from
my residence, and so its not possible for me to visit their gallery every time.

Can you help me out from this.

Now i am some what having a feeling that, i have made a mistake
by purchasing HCL ME Y1 TABLET

Dear Geetesh

I dont think you are going to call me.

Because its not the first time i am receiving this sweet emails.

As today after confirmation from Mr Pradeep, HCL Gallery, Andheri, Mumbai

for consecutive 3rd time my person is sitting in HCL Gallery and they are

saying that HCL ME Y1 TAB is still not ready.

Its simply ridiculous.

Dear Geetesh

At last i got my tablet at 5.00 pm

but now there is a new problem, its not getting charged
and Sim card (network)is not detecting.

In such scenario what should i do now. Should i again
go to gallery and get complaint/ service order so that i
again need to wait for 1 month to get the problem solved.

In 5 months my tablet is with HCl gallery for repairs for
nearly 2 and 1/2 months.

So obviously it was a defective piece which HCl has given me.

I think the customers are beggars we dont have any option
other then begging as if we are buying the problems by paying Rs 11000/-

Kind Regards

Hanging problem of Tablet

My Complaint ID 8400215978. Complaint was that the tablet went in Hanging mode with display showing only ME logo. I purchased the tablet some 4 momths back. It worked OK for few days and then suddenly it started to hang. When contacted the service centre in Goa i was told to hand over the tab for repairs as engineer was not available for which i was reluctant and hence i took my tab without repairs. When i contacted the HCl service online i was guided by them to reset the tab and tab started woking for few days and again went in Hanging mode. So i decided to lodge a complant with service centre and handed over the tab on 3rd july. I was told that it requires one google link for updating. It took one week for them to get the link. but still the problem was not solved. They were list concerned to give me feedback so i dropped in for the fourth time in their office at panjim shelling out diesel for my vehlcle and was told that its PCB requires replacement and it is ordered. One month i was not given feedback about the status and hence i took back my tab and still my problem is not solved. I contacted regional head, country head but nothing has been set right.

HCL ME Tablet. Worst Service by HCL

HCL ME tablet was brought by us on 18-Jul-2013, we had problems since the day one with the touch and other issues while trying to communicate with the PC. After struggling for 10 more days, we had given it for service and its been more then 20 Days there is no proper response from the service center of HCL.

Issue has been escalated to the higher people where we did not receive any response from them. They neither have repaired the faulty one nor replaced with the new one.

Experiencing worst service.
