Hinge broken on U410 and U430T. I request an explanation

2016-03-20, 0:06 AM

Hi, I'm writting to Lenovo witht the last drop of patience I have left in me after trying to figure out a way to get in touch with support... this "callback" thing does not work my friends... I suggest contract a company to perform a deep Service Design do over in all your sites and methods.

That being said, I have 2 Lenovo laptops that have become 2 very thin and very expensive bricks for me now.

- I got a U410 a while back and right after the warranty year expired the hinge broke making it unusable. Support told me I pretty much had to suck it up allthough I have seen an excesive amount of your customers complaining about the same problem, I'd think that it is a design issue and LENOVO should have made a recall for all of them...


- I decided I'd move on and bought a U430 Touch. I first verified that the hinge system was not the same as the other for obvious reasons, then proceed to buy. Today 1 month after warranty expired, the hinge of this new laptop decided to copy cat the other model. Yes a second laptop, same brand decided that it would become usless right after warranty expiration once again.


As usual, support is impossible to contact and honestly at this point I am doing trying to contact you. I expect LENOVO to contact me ASAP to start by giving me a good explanation on why the two latptops I bought for hundreds of dollars are now less than a construction brick and continue to give me a solution to this situation I've been put on for the second time. I will not conform with a "Send us your laptop to China and we'll let you know what happends in 2 months". I need the laptop to work.


Fool me once, shame on you...
I will not be ashamed again.

Thanks for reading,


Alejandro Castells


PS. You have all of my contact information in my Lenovo account.
