Re: W-series shipping thread - 2011 edition

[ Edited ]

Date Ordered: 11/20/2011

Estimated Shipping Date: 11/30/2011


Everything seemed fine until I checked the status today. It still reads "In Process," but now the Estimated Shipping Date is blank. No date is listed. What should I do?

Contacted Lenovo, they said it would ship by the end of the day yesterday. Checked again today, Shipping info was updated. Now it's not going to ship till 12/23/2011, more than 3 weeks after their original estimate, 11/30/2011. Is anyone else having problems with delays? Should I call Lenovo again?


Edit: Contacted Lenovo again, representative confirmed a shipping date of 12/3. Hopefully he'll be right.

I ordered another W520 in the third week of November but because I specified the 500GB HDD the expected ship date was pushed to the middle of March 2012.


Lenovo, fix your purchasing process at  Let customers know up front about delays.

Re: W-series shipping thread - 2011 edition




I agree Lenovo should provide more accurate shipping details, à la Dell.  I am sure they lose customers due to long shiiping estimates, perhaps they are being over cautious. 


btw I don't think the 500gb drives are in short supply, esp the Seagates that Lenovo uses.


I had ordered mine with the same 500gb drive on Nov 11 and received it in about two weeks, please see my config here.


PS  I am quite happy with the drive, it's fast and very quiet. I have the same model (but 320gb) in a Dell for a past two years that runs continuously for days at a time with no issues. I am waiting a few months to eventually install an msata as a boot drive once prices come down or they are available in a larger size.
