Customer ratings and reviews for HP 2 y Premium Svc w/Accident Damage Protection 3 day Onsite LoJack 3mo SmartFriend Select Notebook

Rated 3 out of 5 by Update Disaster HP sends updates on a regular basis and I follow their recommendations and update. The last update I received (still flashing a notice to me as we speak) was: Goya/Balen 1.2 System BIOS Release. I updated and it crashed my computer; stated my BIOS was not ASPC recommended and I was to contact an authority. HP refused to honor the in home repair I purchased: See Below for cost/purchase date 09/19/2012 04/13/2013 $300.94 Not one of 3 different techs in India could assist me with getting my computer back up and running and the US manager I was eventually transferred to said she could not help me and I would have to send my computer into HP as my warranty I purchased only covered hard parts! In any case after I took a day to readjust I went on my computer and reset the BIOS to the "previous", before update setting and there it was all in order. I have purchased 6 computers (desk top and laptop) and 6 HP printers over the years and they have lost a loyal customer. January 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Update to Previous Negative Review Written Changed My previous review ended with leaving a message with The Escalations Team. Within the hour, after I had already written the previous negative review, a case manager Cindy called and I went over my case in detail. I was told I would get a call back in 48 hours. For a second I thought I was being brushed off. A little over 48 hours later I received a call back, and I was told my laptop would be replaced. The replacement would take time to build; 7 to 10 days. The one thing I was provided with is a contact #, case # and one person to deal with. That meant, not having to go through the bureaucracy of being switched from person and repeat my story over and over again. If HP had people like Cindy, then the customer service would always have five stars. January 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absoultely get the Care Pack I am a Software Developer with 40 Years of experience. Having said that, I must admit that while I am "proficient" with Windows OS, my area of expertise is on the Unix OS. I recently purchased a HP Envy 17" 3D laptop and installed BitDefender Security. To make a really long story short, if it wasn't for the Care Package and the expertise of the HP Support people who assisted me, I would either still be having problems or I would have returned the Envy. I have been in the Computer Industry for a long time, and have interacted with many Support groups and individuals. The HP Support team is one of the best I have encountered. They in fact DO HAVE all the "qualities" that most support groups only claim to have. Knowledgable people who LISTEN, friendly, willing to help, patient, and their open 24/7. I highly recommend the HP Care Package. You will not be disapointed. February 2, 2012
