Warning: these guys are really bad.
- Only one phone option prompt works. The others hang up on you. You can't talk with anyone unless you punch in your credit card for $20. Not a problem for a new caller, but when you are just checking on the overdue status of a repair for the fifth time, it gets kind of annoying.
- The agent told me the reason the HDD failed was the fan came loose and hit the drive (no, but thanks anyway).
- Three different people assured me they would return my repaired unit and send the failed drive. The unit arrived, but no drive. (The broken drive was still under warranty.)
- The web site tracking system is totally useless. So is email reply.
- I sent them a system with a 120G HDD. They said "sure we'll fix it" but it'll cost $149 since the drive was so large. Then they returned a system with two 40G drives. Who the heck wants a two drive system with 80G total? (Hopefully everyone realizes that the probability of failure due to hard drive issues is twice as high on a two drive system as a single drive system.) I've had 3 TiVo failures in 5 years -- all due to the hard drives.
- Anyway, S2G is a really incompetent company. Only use them as a last resort.

You needed to spell out what S2G is. I did a Google search and I guess you are referring to the repair company. Which I had never heard of. :)

BTW, what did you send for repair?

Why didn't you come here for advice first?

yep. too bad. there are several companies known in here that are entirely reputable.

S2G totally ripped you off. I lost count of the items I would put in a civil suit to try and get my money back
