Deal Details

Last Edited by ccb3112 September 19, 2014 at 01:15 PM
Searched but didnt see this posted. For those who own a U310, U410 Lenovo laptop there was a class action lawsuit in regards to wifi not working properly (bad design).

This case was settled and you need to file your claim to receive compensation. If you do not respond to settlement you will receive Nothing.

The website is now live with online form available 9/20 (www.lenovolaptopwifisettlement.com), but below are the details from the pdf settlement document :

What does the Settlement provide?
All Settlement Class Members who submit a valid Claim Form (a copy of which is annexed) who have not
previously returned their Class Computer for repair of the wireless capability and who desire to have Lenovo repair
the wireless capability of their Class Computer due to persistent Wi-Fi connectivity problems shall be entitled to
return their Class Computer to Lenovo in order to permit Lenovo to repair the wireless capability of their Class
Computer, and the warranty period for any Wi-Fi related issue shall be: (a) extended for a period of one additional
year from the date of such warranty repair in situations where the original warranty has not yet expired; or (b)
renewed for a period of one additional year from the date of such warranty repair in situations where the original
warranty has expired. The entire cost of such repair, including all costs associated with insured shipping of such
Settlement Class Member’s Class Computer to Lenovo and the return of the Class Computer to the Settlement Class
Member will be borne exclusively by Lenovo; alternatively
All Settlement Class Members who submit a valid Claim Form and who do not elect the Settlement consideration
provided in the Paragraph immediately above, will receive one of the following forms of the Settlement consideration
upon electing one of the following two forms of consideration in connection with each Class Computer purchased:
(a) a cash refund in the amount of one hundred dollars ($100) paid by Lenovo; or
(b) a two hundred fifty dollar ($250) credit certificate toward the purchase of any product listed for sale on
www.lenovo.com.
The $250 credit certificate shall be issued by Lenovo and be transferable within the
Immediate Family of the original claimant and capable of being combined with any other credit, voucher,
coupon, sale, or other discount of any kind and shall expire no less than two years after issuance.
Additionally, the warranty period for those Settlement Class Members who elect to receive these Settlement
benefits shall be: (a) extended for a period of 120 days from the date of final approval of the Settlement in situations
where the original warranty has not yet expired; or (b) renewed for a period of 120 days from the date of final approval of the Settlement in situations where the original warranty has expired.


You must mail in your form indicating which option you choose with proof requested by: September 11th 2015

The hearing will be held at the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, 411 West Fourth Street, Santa Ana, California, in Courtroom 9B. You may appear at the Fairness Hearing, but it is not required.

Mine was a refurb, reading through the pdf, it does not say anything about refurbs excluded.

I am specifically posting this deal since i got my u410 through slickdeals as a refurb

I received the e-mail today as well. Our U410 was also a refurb purchased through their outlet, but it has never had any Wi-Fi issues. Looks like we would still be eligible for the refund or credit if we opt not to send it in to them for a repair that it may never need.
