[filmscanners] Re: Multi-coloured lines in images...


I can't blame you for being upset.  I would be as well.  If I might make
one suggestion.  Before totally giving up on HP (and you'd have every
right, to based upon your experience) you might want to try something
that might help both HP and yourself.

As you might know, HP is in the middle of a battle right now regarding
getting shareholders approval for their tentative merger with Compaq
Computers.  There is a large dispute taking place in the US over this
matter between Walter Hewlett (son of William Hewlett, one of the
founders of HP) who sits on the board and is opposed to this merger, and
the rest of the board spearheaded by Carleton (Carly) Fiorina the CEO.

Anyway, HP is in a very sensitive position with the public right now,
because this very public display of infighting is not helping them, and
their stock price is reflecting this.

I realize you are in Italy, and you normally would deal with HP Italy,
BUT, I suggest you write an email directly to Carly Fiorina's office,
via the internet.  I believe if you look at HP's website in North
America you will find the link for her office. I wonder if Fiorina is an
Italian name-- maybe you could use a few choice words in Italian :-)

Express to her what you stated in your posting below. (she probably
won't read it, but they are pretty good about getting customer
complaints to the right people).  One of the reason HP wants to merge
with Compaq is because HP has a mediocre reputation in Europe while
Compaq's is better.

Let them know that if they should merge, you won't by either brand's
product because you were poorly treated by HP Italy.  I can't guarantee
you'll get any satisfaction, but you might.  HP here might kick up a
little dust at HP Italy, to get some service for you.

Probably worth a try.
