Samsung horrible customer service

My samsung series 7 NP700Z5C-S04US broke after 2 months. I've had 3 different ticket numbers over the last 2 monts: 4116527112, 4116737683, and 4116826626. None of them have been resolved.
Heres my story:
10/8/12: Call customer service for problem with Chronos laptop, won't charge properly. I was told to send it in for service and it would take 2-4 days after it was received.
10/15: UPS confirms that computer was delivered to samsung
10/16: Samsung claims they received the computer
10/17: The repair center receives the computer. (i've already lost 2 days)
10/24: Call samsung since i've received no updates. And am told to call the repair center. The repair center informs me that they are fixing problems my computer never had and won't listen to me about the real problem. They also tell me they are going to order a part that will take 1-2 weeks to arrive.(They've had my computer for a week already, why haven't they ordered it)
10/25: Call samsung back to see if this can be resolved another way as i don't want to be without a computer for a month. They offer a replacement and tell me someone will contact me in 1-2 days to arrange this.
10/30: No one has contacted me and when i call in they just say to keep waiting.
10/31: After having been lied to about their replacement office being closed and then receiveing a lower replacement offer from the "closed" center the same day i asked for a refund. They agree to start the process on that.
11/3: After continually being contacted about a replacement that i no longer want i finally talk to someone in the refund department that says she'll start the refund and that i will receive it in 10-15 business days. (Why did it take them 4 days to understand that i no longer want their product)
11/17: No updates so i call to check in, they say they're still waiting on my computer to be sent in( it was sent in back in october). They also inform me that they will not refund the almost 100 dollars in sales tax. After fighting this for a while i agree to their ammount because i'm tired of dealing with it.
11/24: Their 15 business days are up and they have made no progress. Everyone i talk to gives me a different story. It's already been mailed or we're waiting on one more approval. Then i find out the truth. They messed up somewhere and restarted the 10-15 day process on 11/15 and never told me. They claim there is nothing they can do to speed it up even though it was there mistake. I'm given multiple promises on when it will arrive and those dates come and go.
11/27: The check is supposedly finally in the mail.
12/6: Still no check. Is someone walking the check from their office to texas.
Moral of the story, never do business with samsung. I had a working product for 2 months and they've had it back for 2 months and i have nothing. As a student who needs a computer to do school work this has been horrible. Luckily in the past two months i've been able to turn several people away from buying a samsung product. The few thousand dollars it's probably cost them might not be noticed but it makes me feel better. If you enjoy being lied to and stolen from then go ahead and buy a samsung product, if you want a product that won't break or will at least be fixed go elsewhere.
