Dell Studio XPS 8000 Value PC Desktop Review


Good general and gaming performance ; Bundled 120Hz 22-inch LCD and 3D goggles

Limited internal expansion options

The XPS 8000 is a solid all-around performer with good connectivity and a bundled 120Hz Samsung LCD and nVidia 3D glasses. Just don't count on making upgrades.

Dell Studio XPS 8000-2361JBK review: Dell Studio XPS 8000-2361JBK


Dell Studio XPS 8000-2361JBK

Strong performance for its price; impressive power efficiency; better deal than the same configuration on Dell's Web site.

All-black exterior in this retail model looks bland next to the multicolored models available directly from Dell; midtower design would benefit more from a better graphics card than wireless networking.

The retail version of Dell's Studio XPS 8000 desktop might lack some of the charm of its direct-from-Dell counterpart, but its strong price-performance offering makes it easy to overlook the minor cosmetic deficiencies. That and its admirable power...

Dell Studio XPS 8000 (SX8000-1479UWH)


Dell has also removed all the usual bloatware you find on PCs these days, which frees up hard space and can improve performance. The only nit I can pick is the system only comes with a 30-day subscription for the included Norton Internet Security...

Speedy quad core performance. Large hard drive. No Bloatware. Small items tray with USB ports. eSATA port. HDMI port

Short Internet Security subscription. Graphics card is video rather than gaming oriented. Retail gets the "older model

The Dell XPS 8000 (SX8000-1479UWH) is Dell's multimedia powerhouse desktop. It's a little light in the 3D performance, but it's got Core i5 power you need to get your video and photo projects done quickly. That said, there are other choices.

Expert Review


Dell combined great performance, an attractive design, and noteworthy extras to create the Studio XPS 8000. We only wish it were slightly less expensive and had better upgradability.

Very good productivity, gaming performance, Attractive design, Two-year onsite warranty

Limited upgradability, Somewhat pricey

Dell Studio XPS 8000 Review


Dell was one of the first mainstream computer manufacturers to break out of the mold and strike new territory in terms of interesting designs and attractive cases.

Great design ; Integrated charging tray ; Blu-ray drive

No wireless ; Plastic top

Dell has come an awful long way from their boring grey boxes of yore. These days, they have some of the most innovative and attractive desktop cases that mix powerful features with modern design. The Studio XPS 8000 is just the latest in a recent line...

Dell Studio XPS 8000 desktop PC


A decent Dell PC for the home or small office

Fast performance, Blu-ray drive, 23in Full HD monitor

Upgrades are expensive, internal layout is cramped and the hard drive mounts are inconvenient

We're a bit down on the overall design of the Dell Studio XPS 8000, especially its insides, but that shouldn't take away from the fact that it's a fast machine. It can be used for almost any task, except for high-end gaming, and it's suitable for the...

Dell Studio XPS 8000 review


The Dell Studio XPS 8000 case has been designed so that you can place the PC on the floor and still access its USB ports and memory card slots comfortably. They are easy to access because they are angled slightly upward.

We like the speed of the Dell Studio XPS 8000 and think it's a potent PC for home use or for a small office. However, its design isn't as good as we'd we're used to seeing from machines that brandish the XPS letters. Its internal layout is cramped and...
