    Hows this for service....

    I own a Logitech Freedom joystick which has been playing up for the last month or so. It keeps reconnecting itself when it's not in use and therefore goes through batteries extremely quickly.

    Yesterday I'd finally had enough after it ate through another 3 AA's in a week so I rang Logitech. As the stick is over a year old and I no longer have the receipt, I expected the usual "take it back to the place where it was purchased."
    Instead I was given 2 possible fixes and a ref number in case I had to call back. A few hours later I did call back, ran through the problem with the guy on the phone who in return gave me a Cust Serv address for Logitech in Switzerland. He said you can't send the joystick to us as it will cost too much so you need to send the receiever and the battery cover. In the meantime, Logitech will ship you a brand new Freedom joystick.

    Hows that for customer service !

    I can imagine they'll request you send your G7's feet if your RMA'ing one of those!

    It seems they just want parts from the device that would render the remains useless, or hard to operate.

    Every time I hear of Logitech customer support, they are consistently excellent. Definitely makes me want to buy their products!

    That is class :eek:
    I too hear nothing but good stuff about Logitech customer service. Most people tend to only mention the bad cases; there's very few companies that people specifically mention about being good but Logitech is definitely one of them :)

    Guess that explains why there are so many logitech products on a certain auction site with missing usb connectors!

    Logitech did the same for me when I contacted them with 'issues' on my almost 3 year old bluetooth dinovo desktop. All they asked for were the numbers off each piece and they sent me out a brand new updated dinovo laser set. I was shocked they didnt even want me to send anything back to them. They told me I was free to do whatever I want with the dinovo I had.

    It was the most hassle free and helpful customer service I have ever recieved. Makes me glad that I have purchased quite an amount of products made by them because this kind of service and quality is unparalleled.
