Re: When and where the USB Host Cable for Ideapad K1 comes out?

I no longer care about this brick. The cable being one issue, software updates to fix problems a bigger issue. I have been taken, so I will take my licks and move on. Lenovo you have lost a customer over your sales and service. Lenovo, many company have problems with people feeling ripped off due to the speed of technology moves. This is not the case this is just  case of mismanagement and false advertising. If you plan to keep your customers happy maybe you should offer all the posters here a free cable no charge and free shipping and a minimum of $200.00 off any other Lenovo product.

 

 

Just a thought.

 

 

P.S.. Even if you did do this for the posters here. KEEP MINE, LENOVO IS NOT WORTH IT.

 

 

Prove me wrong

No need to apologize. Do appreciate your efforts. Great product. Price is right. But will not buy or recommend Lenovo products anymore. This is just unfortunate.

I'm curious to see if something shows up tomorrow, there's an estimated ship date from provantage for March 20? Maybe they know the release date that lenovo is being vague about!?

I'm just going to wait until Friday, since Mark said that the part is to be released sometime this week...

We can't take any actions, that's what so frustrating. We are at the mercy of this company doing what's right by us the customers.

I doubt the mass emails sent to the executives with links to this thread have gotten any replies. I would be surprised if it did!

Some people have posted the same question we have here in the best buy forum, and there's an employee answering questions. Look at the difference in communication...

seems that bestbuy uses the same forum system that lenovo but without strange icons to select on profile :D

it's sad that nobody can make this cable available and sell it to us.
Because the k1's propietary format, lenovo have the monopoly to sell this and still can't do it available, then...we have to pay the price :(

When a device is popular enough, the "chinesse labs" usually replicate cables and sell it, but I not think that this happens with this cable, it's not popular enough to be replicated by one of those "cloners",

We have to pray louder and hope that lenovo ear to us to make this d@mned poor-stocked host usb cable available :(

 

----------------------------------------------
I have to buy a new tablet or device, it will not be a Lenovo.
I not have decent post sales support for a simple and essential cable of my ideapad K1 tablet for more than 3 months and counting

Guys,

 

I truly appreciate your frustration and feel a fair measure of it myself .

 

Other than posting internal email chains on this I don't know what else to do to demonstrate to you that we are working on this.

 

The IT issues are resolved, but we can't put an item on the web until there is a minumum level of inventory in the system.  We have some (limited) inventory of this cable and it is being flown by air.  I hope that this can be enabled on the web sometime this week, but it is difficult to make a commitment for things that are outside my direct control.

 

I'm glad to see best buy was looking into this for you as well.  Will be interesting if they list the part and are able to place inventory demand on the part - that could only help.

 

Mark

Is it that limited that they have it air freighted? Candidly how many stocks of the usb host cable have been found and shipped-to the us?
