Recommended Posts

OK So seems like were gettign out fo the cylce of send in, break, rinse, repeat.  Rhiannon R
HTC Vive Social Response Team
has finaly contacted me through twitter and has my case.  They have intercepted the package from the RMA facility and will be reviewing the case.  I still don't know where this puts me but its better than where I was headed it seems.

It shouldnt ahve taken what I did.

 

Total time spent with Support so far for this RMA process is nearing 8 hours on chat and email.

Fun fact: My headset has been out of service for 2 months and 16 days now... This whole thing started July 30th.

 

Edit: For those wondering as well.  Thats 2.5 months of the 6 ive owned the thing for.

I'm blown away just reading this.. I had issues with customer support a month ago and it appears no forward progress has been made. Very disappointing, I don't plan on sending anything to HTC or buying another HTC product after reading your story. Seems converting to Oculus is the way to go.

Yeah Its unfortunate that its been like this.

I finaly have my headset back as of friday.  They finaly replaced the entire HMD.  The ordeal is over.  if it breaks again, ill just take it out back and blow it away with a shotgun.  I wont be going through this again.

 

The solution was to not work with chat support but complain and drag support enough through social media to get them to respond.  once they did start responding my issues got resolved.  but not until then.

No compensation for my issues or time, just the product.  Which I don't mind because I got what I wanted. Its just seeing how HTC has caused me so many problems for so long a time.  You would think they would want to make it more than just OK.

Mind you at least 8 hours of my time was spent with support during this ordeal.  At my pay rate thats the equivelant of $200 of my time.  I dunno about you but HTC shoudl value their customers more than that.

6 total shipments, 1 initial RMA request,  Total Cost in all parties involved and expenses for shipping is prolly reaching close to $800-$900.  Just interesting aspects you wouldnt expect.

My issue is now closed until it breaks again which I fully expect it to.

Dredging this back from the dead.  htc is a planned obsolescence company.  be prepared for your lighouses to die 2 months out of warranty.  this was by far the absolute worst investment ive ever made.

so if you want to know what blew up it was the laser diode on the lighthouse.  Realy?  Cmon guys...  Ill get another diode and replace it but i guarantee.  this will be the last HTC product I ever buy.
