I order a HP Photosmart 5520 Printer. The paper got stuck wit the 1st printer. The 2nd printer, the cover fell off when flipped opened.
On April 22, 2016 I purchased the HP Photosmart 5520 Printer which came with the ink, instruction booklet and CD. I purchased it from and costs $127. I ordered it online. On May 3, I received the Photosmart Printer. I emailed because every time I try to print something, the paper kept getting stuck. Mary Mendoza contacted me approximately at the end of the week. Ms. Mendoza informed me that they will replaced the printer but I needed to return the printer I had. She stated that a prepaid return label will be emailed. However, this was not the case. I paid $55 to sent the printer and its contents back to I addition, I purchased a second box to put the printer i. Ms. Mendoza contacted me on Thursday, May 26, stating that there was a HP Photosmart 5520 Printer but it the box was opened. Someone returned it because he/she apparently brought the wrong printer. She asked if it was okay for them to send this one. I told them yes. Apparently, I was refunded $17. I received the second HP Printer on June 1, 2016. When I flipped the cover opened, it fell off. I emailed Compubizusa and requested a RMA Number.

Desired Settlement
I am seeking a full refund for the HP Photosmart Printer, a prepaid label from to cover the cost of returning the printer back to a refund of $55 to cover the cost of returning the first HP Photosmart Printer, that I had to returned, and $150 for my frustration and for my time wasted in which I could have been doing something else than waiting in line at UPS.

Business Response
We regret that the both the original unit and the replacement did not meet Ms. *********' expectations. She was given a couple of options how to proceed: (1) the replacement will be sent to her right away by placing another order then getting the full refund on the original transaction or (2) to send the first unit back and the replacement will be sent to her when we receive the defective unit which takes longer. She chose the latter option and opted to send the defective unit back.

According to our shipping department, a label was created and was sent. Normally, the label is attached to the email sent to her with the return instructions. Had we known that the Ms. ********* did not receive the label, we would have gladly sent it over again and there wouldn't have been any need to ship it herself. Shipping cost for this unit is approximately $10-$15.

When our warehouse received the defective unit on May 26th, another unit was tested and shipped out to Ms. *********. As we have informed her before shipping out the replacement unit, it was tested and was deemed working by our technicians. She agreed; we then issued the difference in price ($17). The replacement was sent in the same day via FedEx tracking # XXXXXXXXXXXX and was delivered on June 2, 2016.

According to Ms. *********, it sounds like there is physical damage on the printer. As mentioned, the item was checked by our technicians before this was shipped out. This damage could have been due to shipping.

This will be a complete remorse on our part. However, at this point, all we can do is issue a full refund for her order at the amount of $110.00. There is also no need to send the replacement unit back.

I received a Defective BenQ Gaming Monitor, that was not as described on the website. They refused to send me a return receipt & money back
I received a Defective 1 of: BenQ ******* 24-Inch Screen LED-Lit Professional Gaming Monitor. Order #: XXX-XXXXXXX-XXXXXXX purchased on on October 12, 2015. within the 30 days return policy and they refused to send me a return label by UPS or USPS. They are forcing me to keep the defective monitor that they sent me, and do not want to give me a full refund to my Amazon Credit Card for the amount of $336.50.

Desired Settlement
I want the business to send me the return label to return the BenQ gaming monitor, that they send me that was defective and not specified as it was described in the product description. I want a full refund of my monies back to my Amazon Credit Card.

Business Response
The order was placed on October 12, 2015 and was delivered on the 17th via FedEx tracking # XXXXXXXXXXXX. It was 30 days after the transaction occurred when we received his request on November 12th. Even after the 30-day policy, we were willing to make a 1-time exception and we reached out to him and spoke on the same day. We offered to replace the unit but he declined. In which case, we asked for photos of the unit - serial number and another that demonstrates the issues he is having as he claims the unit to be defective. The product has manufacturer's warranty - all the customer needed to do was register it and BenQ will assist him with the issues he is experiencing with the monitor.

On November 17th, we still hadn't received any photos or additional information and followed up with the customer via email with a date to respond by (November 20th) as it has been more than 30 days. We had given him enough time to respond even when our policy states we only have 30 days from date of purchase to accommodate his request yet we extended it through November 20th. The case was then closed on November 24th due to the fact that there was lack of response by the extended due date.

It was on November 25th, after the case has been closed, when we received the photos. By the looks of the photos, it seems to be a setup issue. However, the customer was adamant to return it even after 13 days pass *** policy. We have given him more than enough time to make his case but he did not comply nor cooperated with us. We understand that there may be an issue with the product - this is where the manufacturer's warranty comes in. Surely, BenQ will be more than happy to assist the customer and stand by their product.

Consumer Response
(The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)
I order the BenQ Monitor on Octuber 12, 2015, and it arrived on Octuber 17, 2015. I gave them numerous phone calls to report and request a return label before November 12, 2015 which they ignored. On November 12, 2015, I requested through amazon a RMA return label, which they refused. (Before Nov 17,2015) Because my computer power supply was damaged and I had to replace it. knew that I was within the 30 days return policy, they refused to give me a full refund of my money back and sent me an email, telling me that their return policy was of only 20 days, which is totally false. Why do I have to be responsible for defective comnputer monitor in behalf of CompuBizUSA? Then I will have to pay for shippling and handling charges. Purposely, ComnpuBizUSA have ignored all my request since I explain in great details the problem of the defective BenQ monitor, there was no need for me to take pictures of the monitor, since I already sent them through email system all the details of the problem with the monitor and they knew the serial number, and all the details of the product in their inventory, because it is in the label of the box. My configuration of my computer was perfectly fine and worked perfect with one of my Asus 1080p monitor. except with the BenQ gaming monitor that they shipped out to me. Also I am a computer technician and I contacted BenQ technical support and they confirmed that the monitor was shipped to me defective. As a courtesy I sent them pictures from my cell phone, but was unable to send to them, because the megapixels was too big for hotmail to send to them, but there was no need I explained to them with great details the nature of the problem, so they already knew and ignored my request. I still want a full refund to my credit card of my money back, because this brings me further damages.

Final Business Response
We stand by our original statement. We have given Mr. ***** ample time to provide the information we requested after our return policy had expired. It was only when we reminded him days after that we will close his request due to lack of response did he complied and sent us the photos. By then, he had also filed an A-to-Z claim with Amazon on November 24, 2015. After the investigation launched by Amazon, the claim was denied.

As the photos indicate it to be an issue with the product, the unit has its manufacturer's warranty. Any problem and concerns will surely be assisted by the manufacturer - BenQ.

We wish Mr. ***** all the best and hope he has a happy holiday.
