Dell Inspiron 15-5558 Notebook Review

 

Dark screen. Dell sends a 15.6-inch all-rounder into the fight for buyers' favor with its Inspiron 15-5558. The laptop pleases with an IPS screen that, however, has a much too low brightness. Dell could have been a bit less tightfisted with the GPU.

Matte, high-contrast Full HD IPS screen, Plenty of storage, Barely heats up, 802.11 ac dual-band Wi-Fi, Maintenance cover

Dark screen, Fast Ethernet only, Comparatively low gaming performance

Dell has a 15.6-inch all-round device in its lineup with the Inspiron 15-5558. The installed processor offers enough power for routine use. The GeForce graphics core allows gaming at least to a certain degree. However, we would have expected a stronger...

Dell Inspiron 15-5558 review

 

Few laptops at this price offer the all-round goodness of the new 15-5558

The Inspiron 15-5558 straddles budget and midrange laptop camps, depending on configuration, asserting excellent build quality and decent performance as you’d expect of a £500+ design. The screen is one of the best you’ll find on a laptop around this...

Great Value

 

Great machine for everyday use. I bumped up the RAM to 16GBs (GSkill 8GBs x 2 slots) and swapped out the HDD for a SSD (Samsung 850). Machine runs excellent for everyday office use, streaming videos (Hulu, Netflix, YouTube Red, etc) and social media....

Excellent everyday value machine RAM Expandable to 16GBs Easy to access upgradeable parts Nice texture on the palm rest

Glossy lid, shows fingerprints easily

Might have different CPU model

 

Overall for the price its a decent spec'd notebook with nice features. I sent my first one back as my first review gives it bad mark for having a different CPU then what spec sheet says. But when my replacement came with same issue. I contacted Dell...

Study and good build quality but not too heavy for a 15"

Can't adjust lighted keyboard, somewhat of a flex in keyboard in middle. Dell does appear to substitute the 5200U CPU for a 5250U which has similar performance but a slower base speed 1.6ghz vs 2.20 ghz. Turbo speed same.

Some bad some good

 

I'm OK with the notebook until I found I had a slower CPU model then indicated on box. Is Dell doing a sly swap and putting different chips in? Or was this a manufacturing error? Otherwise I'm trying to decide if to return it, have Dell fix it or deal...

Nice study laptop, good Keyboard like the subtle back light

Mine came with a slower albeit slightly slower CPU model 5250u in it then indicated on box which was a 5200u 1.6Ghz vs 2.2 Ghz base frequency. So this is a fluke or is Dell pulling a fast one??

Great Product, but...

 

I usually wait several weeks, if not months, before posting a review on a product because I truly believe it takes that long to properly get the feel of a product. However, there is one fact I simply could not overlook and felt other customers might...

Windows 10, backlit keyboard, great RAM, processor

Windows 10, limited functionality of drivers due to Windows 10

DELL i5558-2144SLV

 

Definitely would recommend this machine to anyone looking for a decent computer on a budget.

Solid laptop, perfect size. Backlit keyboard with numpad. Specs are the best on the market for the price. I replaced the stock 1TB hard drive with an SSD for performance which (not surprisingly) made this thing FAST. Great multi-touchpad (reminds me of...

Not sure I'm a fan of the rubbery finish around the keyboard and touchpad area. (dust and dirt tends to stick to it) The LAN port is standard 10/100 fast Ethernet, which isn't a big deal but come on Dell, the standard for the last 5 years has been...

Well worth the price

 

I've never been enamored with Dell products, but this machine had all the features I was looking for at a very reasonable price. So far, after removing the Macafee software. I have to say this one's a winner. I don't use it for much other than email...

Decent CPU, AC wireless, lighted keyboard, very limited bloatware.

Only one USB3 port; can't make it boot with numlock on.

Worst Purchase EVER

 

NONE

Computer is un-useable with popup adds, not wanted installs and full of software bugs and crashes with Win10

Extremely Happy!

 

This is my first laptop computer and I am extremely happy with it. The only reason I'm not giving this a 5 star rating is because the battery doesn't seem to last as long as I think it should, but I haven't had a laptop before so I'm not sure how long...
