This unit provides me everything I need for my photos and music

  • Excerpt: This computer provides all the power I need for my extensive use for photo images and all my downloaded music. It comes with Norton security which has not let a virus etc in in the 2 + years I have been using it. It is also a decent gaming computer and has been able to handle any games I have attempted to play. As far as doing Dockuments the works program handles all that quite well.

  • Excerpt: I enjoy playing games, and writing, so for my uses this is a great computer. I do think there could be a better system to the Vista, I do not think it was better then XP or in fact windown98 special addition. I am someday looking forward in trying windows 7. I love making cards, using the web. I still find the computer slows down a lot, and too manything are made to run right of the bat.

  • Summary: would have given 5 stars but mine came with a 128mb graphics card and not the 256 like stated in add. it did come with a keyboard and mouse and vista 64bit disk which i didn't know i was getting but glad i did . As soon as i got it i wiped the drive and did a fresh install of windows 7 home prem. 64 bit "I had NO problems what so ever" my base score is 4.1 which would be more if i had the graphics card that i thought came with the unit. my top score after installing win.

  • Summary: The computer was received with the card reader cover floating around inside the case which was easy to fix. Starting up the computer failed because the hard drive had been formatted improperly. Thankfully, they included system software, Vista Home. Reformatting the hard drive and installing Windows and supplied software was time consuming but went smoothly. Once all this was done the computer performed beautifully.

Dell Dimension XPS 420: A quick review after two years of service

Review_writer, Dooyoo
6 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought a Dell XPS 420 over two years ago, and I have to say I have been very pleased with it overall. After all of this time it is still working like new, and still has the performance to rival many newer computers. The Dell XPS 420 comes with the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system, which I personally have never had any problems with and have found to be a quick and efficient operating system.
  • Pros: Powerful, good value when bought second hand, decent graphics, customer service
  • Cons: Needs a bit of updating now, slow start up
