Ever since the fire consumed my old 19” TFT I had to get a replacement. And I found one thanks to suggestions from friends on the India broadband forum. It took them almost 20 days to deliver it to me but it’s finally here. And I love it!
When I placed the order for the TFT Screen… I was told that it would be delivered to me within a period of two weeks.
It’s already been 9 days that I placed the order. I was hoping to receive the delivery in the next couple of days.
And the company today decided to send me a mail that the order is now in process and it is now being processed for MANUFACTURING.
The delivery date is now scheduled for MAY 07. ONE FULL MONTH for a TFT SCREEN? WTF?
Still cannot pinpoint a rough figure. The LCD works but is definitely damaged. I don’t think my warranty on this panel cover accidents. I would check out with Dell if they would be able to fix it up. Would have to buy a desktop as a backup machine. Airtel is yet to connect me up.
One suggestion for everyone… Keep backups at a safe place and insure your stuff!
Update: Had a word with Dell Customer Support. The warranty of course did not apply in this case. And they do not offer any kind of repairs on the TFTs. So, I guess I would have to find a way to discard this otherwise perfect monitor and get a new one :(
