  • Excerpt: I've dealt with many computers in my life but the acer takes the cake.  its a sleek, slim model.  the cd port is hidden and so is the power switch.  you would not even think this was a computer if not for the screen and type pad near it.  its light-weight and goes fast.  The Acer Dimension E520 desktop computer is above the rest.  Even my kids under the age of 5 are having fun learning how to use the computer and mouse pad.  It beats Compaq and Dell 100 percent.

Not Too Bad of a Machine

  • Excerpt: It's a good computer, easy to use and is pretty fast.  The only downside I found is when updating the computer, it takes forever on mine.  The last upgrade took just over 36 hours.  It gets slow during this time, but other than that, it is a nice computer.

  • Excerpt: The Dell Dimension E520 is a good buy.  Pentium D proccesor, and 4 GB of Memory makes it a good investment.  Good Graphics.  Good case design and really quite as well.  If you're looking to buy your first desktop computer this would be your best choice.  For all the simple tasks like email, word processing, listening to music and surfing the internet.  Best of all, I think that when it comes to basic multitasking this machine is an excellent choice.

  • Excerpt: When my old custom built computer was getting tired after eight years , I looked around and decided to go with a Dell. I chopse the Dimension E520 which does not have a ton of bells and whistles but suits my needs perfectly .  I like Dell because they always have a lot of coupon codes or deals around that are pretty easy to access.

Dell's Dimension E520 does all I need

  • Excerpt: I have had my Dell Dimension for over 2 years. Getting used to the Vista was a challenge, especially the Word and Power Point.  But now I do very well with them and prefer this version over 98.  I have 98 at work and I don't have the versitality that Vista has. It was hard at first to navigate and find everything.  This computer is very fast which is great for me as I am impatient. I like the game features that came installed.

Easy to Upgrade

  • Excerpt: My husband got this as a mid-level gaming computer several years ago. It came with Vista, and we upgraded it to windows 7 ultimate-- nearly trouble free. It hasn't needed any parts replaced thus far, although we did upgrade the video card and install an extra disk to make more room, as well as upgrading the RAM.

The dimension E520 is the best Dell I've ever purchased!

  • Excerpt: When I purchase a new computer, It's always a Dell.  I currently have 2 Dell desktops and 1 laptop and so far I like the dimension E520 the best.  It's about 2 years old now and I've used it for programming, web design, logo design, photo editing, email, and an infinate number of other things. I have had one major issue with it which was the hard drive malfunctioned and needed to be replaced.  It was in such bad shape that I wasn't able to get my files off of it.

  • Excerpt: We ordered our dell dimesion e520 over the phone and talked with customer service to make sure we got what we wanted. They were very nice and helpful. The computer is nice and comes with a nice flat screen monitor which I love. It has a cd player,burner,and dvd player on it. You can easily save all your files and pictures and it loads things pretty quick.

  • Excerpt: "I was strapped for cash but needed a newer system so after some searching and weighing other systems I chose the E520, I opted for the 2.8 ghz Pentium D since the new core duo's only cost more than anything. Once I got it i threw in a new video card. Here was the only problem i ran into with the whole system. There was only a 305 watt power supply, yeah 305, not 350. The thing is it has pretty good ventilation and space internally so I'm going to ...
  • Pros: Well ventilated, easy to work on, has pci - express
  • Cons: To much crap installed on initial boot, inadequate power supply .
