RE: Instructions for adding a second and/or third Western Digital SATA HD to my new Dell XPS 8910
So, I decided to 'chat' with DELL customer service today to inquire about how to utilize this feature that they marketed when they sell the XPS 8910 SE.
- Spend 48 minutes with chat first, then on phone hold only to find out I was talking to sales people not technical.
- Another 15 minutes on phone only to find out I was directed to a software person not hardware.
- Finally get redirected to a hardware technical person who after 20 minutes tell me I need a 6Gb/s cable but I need to call customer service during install to guide - FOR EXTRA $$ since I only have a basic warranty on this brand new computer.
- I asked the last guy then to email me his findings on the cable specs... NOPE he can't do that either.. I need to call customer service to guide me through the install (for extra charge $$$)
So, basically DELL markets and sells a computer with features that you need to pay extra to utilize... I think there is two words for that.. DECEPTIVE PRACTICES. They market a feature, when selling you a product, and then deliberately omit any info how to use it unless you pay extra. PATHETIC is my opinion... DELL is NOT what it used to be ... anyone remember Gateway 2000 ... they'll follow the same fate.
