Computers: Feedback: Screen gem
Friday 12 November 1993
After a galvanising letter from me to head office which mentioned the word 'journalist' not at all, Philips's monitor division last week sent a friendly support expert round with a number of different screens for me to look at until I found one I did like. The company then pocketed the difference in price between the two.
The previously unobtainable customer services department has also been strengthened as a result of my complaints. In my experience of 10 years' of buying computer equipment for a home office, this is the first time any manufacturer has willingly replaced a piece of equipment purely on the basis of quality, even if it took a little time to get them going.
It is also the last time I buy a monitor without seeing it working beforehand.
