I placed an order for an HP laptop dv6t quad edition on the 22nd of march 2011. HP graciously charged my card and took the money out on the 24th of march. The tentative shipping date they gave me was for the 5th of April. I waited till the 6th and since there was no movement on the order status, I decided to call and guess what. The highly (in)competent customer service team couldnt answer why the order was delayed and since the phone line was so choppy I asked them to call me back. They however did not. I had to call them after 30 mins and again request the same information. After learning that nothing was going to happen to the order for the next few days, I requested them to cancel. Now the fun starts, The claim that they can raise a cancellation request but cannot confirm it, There is a possibility that the product might be shipped soon and if it does, it becomes my responsibility to ship it back to HP. More over as per the customer service, it will take 24 to 48 hours for final cancellation and another 3 to 5 business days to refund my amount. Well that is not the end of it, I get another email that evening informing that the shipping is delayed by a week and it might take a maximum of 10 days and if I choose to cancel it, I need to call the customer service team and raise a request. This ticked me off and I called them again to confirm why my order hasnt been cancelled even after they knew that the product was not completed. They go on yapping for half an hour and finally I lost my patience and requested to speak with the manager. They would not let me speak and kept telling me that they will try and find the manager but they cannot confirm if the manager is available. Well after me standing on my ground the manager finally gets on the phone, Introduces herself and then gives me the whole attitude again. On top of everything the manager tells me that HP has not charged my card and its on hold with my bank, Fortunately I did check with my bank and they did inform me that the amount was deducted on the 24th and it was not on hold. After I mentioned this to the manager her story changed and she agreed to expedite the cancellation but still it would take 24 to 48 hours. I seriously think HP should stop advertising for products that they cannot produce and ship on time. Unfortunately I did work with HP and its sad that this company is going down south, way down. Pathetic.. that is all I can say.
