Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good on paper

 

It was fast, very quiet and had a ton of storage

With less than 9 months of ownership and very mild use as a second home computer... it completely stopped working. Won't boot up properly. And now it turns the monitor to sleep mode every single time it is booted up. I'm told this could be a video card...

It Works!

 

I don't have any good or bad comments. It works as it said it would. Got what I asked for. Didn't think it came with a keyboard or mouse, but it did.

Does what it's supposed to do...fast

 

I love this computer. The shipping was fast, the setup was fast and it runs fast. What more can you ask? Oh, and the price was more than right, too.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Awesome

 

No problems with windows 7 but tried to run my old xp on it and it would blue screen until I found out I had to change the SATA mode to ata in the bios. It booted, but had tons of problems and had to just reinstall XP. Then I had to find the drivers...

Amazing performance. Even with integrated video runs starcraft 2 at playable speeds (at min settings). Windows 7. The case is nicer than I expected. Fan is quiet except during boot

300 Watt PSU (pushes the limit if you get a vid card). No IDE or PS/2 ports. The keyboard/mouse feel cheap. Some bloatware

Smokin Second Gamer

 

Clean install is the way to go. If you put in a Double slot card be prepared to re-route Sata cables or get longer ones.

Scores 7.2 processor 7.5 on Gaming graphics. Installed 550 watt PSU and a 4870 HD. This will be my second gamer for teaming up on BFBC2 with my son. I did a clean install loaded the dell drivers from their support page and no problems with anything....

Excellent Machine

 

Back up disc doesn't come with drivers so make sure that you download necessary drivers onto a removable drive (just in case, better safe than sorry.) Since it's Dell, you can obtain all of these easily from their website for the exact model CPU - it's...

Handles most gaming quite adequately. Comes with Windows 7 (trumps vista like none other), handles all my gaming applications (including SC2) easily (I also added a video card, though) - which it picked up on and was simple to install the hardware and...

During intense applications like tabbing out of SC2 (which requires 3+ processors to run effectively) you hear the fan rev up when tabbing back into SC2. It sounds like an F14 Tomcat for a few seconds, but in my opinion, that's just awesome but...

Unwanted software...

 

Newegg had no graphics card info on this box (at the time?) ATI Radeon x4200 integrated graphics card. You can look that up yourself, not an amazing integrated, but not terrible, runs what I need it to. PCI Express slot was quickly filled up just in...

Quad 2.8 processors ; 3Gb DDR3 RAM ; QUIET ; Simple ; Fan attached to back of the tower, just below the power source for extra cooling. (Total of 2 fans including power source.)

Dell comes with their own software added in. the "Dell Dock" and other added pains in the rear. (Dell dock is very similar to Mac's dock) ; No graphic card info on Newegg! (See below for graphic detail) ; DELL - Known for screw ups ; First day, the...
