Summary: The computer was received configured as advertised, even a bit better, but with packaging issues. Bubble wrap and peanuts is not the best way to ship a heavy workstation class computer. It should've been packed in custom spray foam for proper support during shipping. As it was, I had to put the front bezel back on, untwist the case somewhat, and replace the side panel with a spare that fit and closed good.

Excerpt: This Computer will work very fast for you if you have enough memory for the tasks you perform. I have one with 12GB and it flies to the applications. I work with autoCAD 2011 in 3D and this machine is much faster than the predecessor I had. Like any dell is a reliable machine with good technical support that I have no need to use up to this point. I have only worked with it for a month but I am I fan now. I am probably getting a similar mode for home.
Summary: Ich benutze die Dell T3500 Precision Workstation mit einem Intel Xeon W3520, 24 GB ECC RAM, einer NVIDIA Quadro FX580 und einer FX3800, einer SanDisk Ultra Plus SSD mit 256 GB und wechselnden HDD´s für die Datenspeicherung. Das Betriebssystem ist Win7 Pro. Den Rechner habe ich nur zur Videobearbeitung gebraucht gekauft. Obwohl es sich um ein fünf Jahre altes Gerät handelt, gibt es im Workflow keine lästigen Einschränkungen bezogen auf die Performance.
