Excerpt: The thing I like about Dell is that you can customise your computer to your own requirements, for example adding a DVD Re writer media card, etc, etc. I've had little trouble with mine (touch wood!). The only problem I had was upgrading to Windows Vista.
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.
Pros: Well ventilated, easy to work on, has pci - express
Cons: To much crap installed on initial boot, inadequate power supply .
Excerpt: This was the first PC I have bought from Dell, as I usually build my own, but at the price I couldnt resist it. I purchased one of these back in April from Ebay for under £200. I am very impressed with it. Mine came preinstalled with Windows Vista Home Premium.
Pros: Good Quality, Fast, Reliable, Upgradeable
Cons: Only comes with a 1 year return to base warranty as standard
Excerpt: I was really excited about getting a Dell as they always looked fantastic on the television adverts. When it came and we set it all up it looked great, however it was really noisy. We just thought it was maybe cos it was so big and hada dual core processor so needed to stay cool, - silly us!
Pros: Looks great . Dual core processor
Cons: Freezes . Dell technical support a nightmare ! !
Excerpt: I bought my Dell Dimension E520 from ebay, I had no opertunity to upgrade any of the components but i understand that they are quite easy to do yourself. I decided to buy this particular model as i did not need a monitor and it came with no monitor.
Excerpt: Has pretty much all you need, except i have seen better looking products. This is the only let down. There are many features which make the whole product even more impressive! I would highly recomend it to anyone that is interested in buying this type of product.
Excerpt: The dell dimension E520 is so easy to set up, with straight forward instructions, there is hardly any software to load up as it is already loaded on there ready for you to use, as soon as you switch on.
Excerpt: I have just brought my Dell Dimension E520, directly of Dell's website. The reason I decided to go for Dell was that I could pick and choose what spec I wanted and i knew from previous experiences with the company they offered great reliability and value.
Excerpt: 10/24/06 - Despite Dell's decision to also offer AMD based PCs they continue to sell primarily Intel processors. The Dimension E520 budget system is based around the older Pentium D 805 processor.
