Disappointment in Customer Services offers at Megalink Systems Singapore

To it may concern, 

This is to bring to your notice that I am greatly dishearten by how LENOVO’s customer service and the technical team who handles the client’s follow-up.

I’ve recently gotten a brand new laptop (Thinkpad E420) which was sent to me as a gift from the US to Singapore for the use of my studies. Given that, I’ve been relying on it heavily due to school’s coursework.

To my disappointment, after a month of use, the laptop gave off weird sounds and soon after, was completely switch off. To my horror, it was unable to boot from then. As I needed it to be repaired urgently, I sent it for servicing immediately on 1 September 2011 and was told that it would take no longer  then a 1 week for it to be done. To my despair , up till today, 17th September  I have yet to receive any call or updates on my progress of my laptop.

 To top it  off, no calls  were made by the customer service centre on my delay which I remember clearly that I  was told that follow-ups will be notified to my attention.

I hope that you take this complaint serious and investigate this matter as soon as possible.

Hi, jasloh

I am from Singapore too and I myself heard some negative feedback from my friends and hardwarezone about Megalink Systems Singapore. Sorry for hearing about your disappointment.

Since you are using ThinkPad instead of IdeaPad, I would recommend you to bring your ThinkPad E420 to either 

Lenovo Service CentreNo 9 Changi Business Park Central 1, The IBM Place 2.


Lenovo DropOff Center600 North Bridge Road #16-01 Parkview Square


for your next repair if necessary. Most probably, send your machine to IBM or Lenovo to repair directly would be better than sending to 3rd party Authorized Service Centre.


What you can do now is to calm down and email to one of the staff in the forums or call Lenovo Support (800 6011 343) to discuss about your case.

Best practice is to talk / complain in a friendly manner

Best Regards :smileyvery-happy:

Lenovo in the USA has poor customer service also, they never respond to the issues I have had even when I call them and get case numbers, they take my information and then I never hear from them again, I will most likely never buy a Lenovo again, I have an E420.

Re: Disappointment in Customer Services offers at Megalink Systems Singapore



I'm glad that finally a lenovo staff got back to me on the forum.


As a suggestion to lenovo. Thinkpad E420 is a fairly new laptop advertised, and it could be due to it is new, thus the services center located all over the world have no parts. And I understand that, thus, the QC of the laptop shouldn't it of another higher level. So could have reduce all this extra work? Alternatively, shouldnt the services center offer a replacement laptop for services of laptop that take longer than 2 weeks?


It could be my misunderstanding, but if it keeps up with the current defect rates, and the services level, it will be a damage to the company reputation. Folks like me wont want a defect PC after all.

Re: Disappointment in Customer Services offers at Megalink Systems Singapore

I've had a similar experience to you. I'm a new Lenovo customer. In Oct., I purchased a Thinkpad E420 from an online retailer. I had heard good things about the product and felt good about the purchase. That ended very soon.  About three weeks later, the laptop would not start up. Rather than try to return the computer through the online retailer, I opted to contact Lenovo as the computer was still under warranty. That was a big mistake! I should have tried to return the computer and get a refund as soon as trouble started brewing because dealing with Lenovo's customer service and trying to get my machine repaired/replaced has been a long journey of frustration, disappointment, and anger. Although my laptop was brand new, customer service would not replace the model and made me wait over three weeks to return the computer (keep in mind i only had the computer for three weeks). After the machine was returned, I had it for about a month before the same problem occurred again!!! I contacted Lenovo and demanded a new computer, as I had completely lost faith in the defective one I had purchased. They refused saying that one repair service was not enough to replace a computer. My computer was 3 weeks old before it malfunctioned!!! The computer has been inoperable longer than it has been operable, and Lenovo did not give a s@*t!  I wish I had never bought this Lenovo computer. It has been one of my worst consumer experiences.

Re: Disappointment in Customer Services offers at Megalink Systems Singapore

In the earlier days, ibm/lenovo, were very good, but just like everyone, they are finding shorcuts to get around things, making inferior products and wanting more money, its all a big money game, i wish that the quality and customer care would come back into play but it cost them too much so they cut corners which is stupid.
