Dell Inspiron 660

 

Dell has been selling mass-produced desktop PCs for years, so you'd think some of this experience might rub off on its low-cost PCs. Alas, with flimsy build quality and a tacky-looking reflective plastic frontage, its Inspiron 660 feels cheap and...

Decent upgradability, but the Dell Inspiron 660 is let down by poor performance

Very Good Value In An Inexpensive Package

 

I purchased this model as refurbished with Windows 7 (64-bit, SPI). Since I have been building computers in the past so I knew from the start that the total cost of parts and Windows 7 DVD in this unit is almost $200 less than building the same myself....

Ok, but not great if you're a long time Dell user

 

I've owned 2 previous Dells desktops at home and have purchased dozens more for the office. Pleased with all those purchases. The recommendation is for someone who would never buy a PC without customization...or open up the chasis to add a...

good value (inexpensive), dell financing...easy a can be

cheap looking, cheap feel to it, cheap components particularly the dvd r/w, awkwardly placed & unneeded tray for card and usb, cheesy button to open dvd and no activity lite

New Inspiron 600 hasn't worked more than two days in two weeks

 

Pros: New computer was fast and I liked the software that Dell already had installed. It worked great right out of the box but soon crashed.

Good but not great

 

I'm still learning to use the computer and like many features but I have problems with Windows 8. overall, however, I'm satisfied with the dell Inspiron 660 and would recommend it to others.

Windows Defender

 

I just got a Dell Inspiron 660, 64 bit. It came loaded with Windows 8 but the Windows Defender doesn't seem to work on this computer. I don't know why Defender came with a computer it won't work on.

can't run defender

I learned my lesson- only Dells from now on

 

I must say I love this PC. I use it for gaming, the complete Office suite, watching videos (sometimes multiple players at the same time) and having three different browsers open at one time. It never crashes! As people have mentioned it is incredibly...

quiet, fast, almost never crashes, can run many programs at once

none so far

Worse than my old one

 

Computer doesn't work very well. McAfee keeps popping up that I'm not registered. Can't download anything including Adobe Reader. May have to reconnect my old computer to get anything done. The only plus is that it is fast at what it does, which isn't...
