Garbage

trouzy, Amazon
21 January 2014
  • Summary: Dell BIOS just robs this computer of anything that could make it good. That said, for the price it isn't too big of a loss to buy a non-dell mobo to pop in it. Which is what I am doing. The system underclock's and limits the video card that comes with it. And crashed constantly when installing ATI's Software. Likewise Hyper-v fails to start for no reason (guessing also BIOS related) Also freezes when trying to run tools like PCWizard.

This is a very fast machine with lots of storage and little sign of wear.

  • Summary: This was purchased as an upgrade for my law office. I had no difficulty installing or booting up for the first time. File transfer was a breeze. I knew the XPS i5 w/ 8 gigs of ram would be faster than my old Dell 531 core 2 duo but I was not prepared for just how much faster. I like the two diagonally placed usb ports on top of the case - convenient for external devices that are only occasionally used.

not very reliable

Richard P. Collins, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought one in November 2011 (but not through Amazon). Was a reliable computer for about a year, then I started getting an error message (albeit w/limited info). Checked web for explanation and a few sites said this was not an uncommon problem for a Dell. Followed advice (roughly same on multiple sites) to address problem and error messages stopped. In mid-January 2013 (14 months after purchase), the computer would not start. Turns out the motherboard failed.

GREAT!

  • Summary: I really enjoy the Dell XPS 8300. It's as quiet as dead goldfish! It's very fast and can run many programs, like 3/4 video games at once. The graphics are well enough to have no problems playing a video or a favorite video game. Greatest of all it's not as expensive as most other computers out on the market, but can still do so much.

1st new system since 2003. Loving it.

Wiz Dood, Amazon

  • Summary: I got the Dell XPS8300 from Dell for $730. Core i7-2600, 8GB ram DDR3, 500gb 7200rpm HDD, Radeon HD6770, and I got a coupon for a Razer Blackwidow mechanical keyboard as well. I am very happy with the purchase. The only downside to Dell is all the bloatware they stick in it, but they're easily uninstalled. I've been playing Battlefield 3, and its been fast and fun. The machine is also quiet as a whisper. I can't barely hear the fans.

Fast Quiet Monster

R. PELTIER, Amazon
18 March 2012
  • Summary: This beast sits right next to me on my desk and is wisper quiet. If you aren't listening for it you don't notice any fan noise. It is also a thing of beauty a non-dirtying mat white on the sides and glossy jet black on the front which amazingly shows no finger prints. The power is extaordinary compared to my old sigle core P-4, The 8 cores barely show activity doing anything, My old single core Dell 8100 would quite often stop and take a time-out to think before...

  • Summary: Overall a good Dell product and a good Walmart price. Unit could use some sort of light in the front and back so you can see the various slots for accessories. My units is under my desk and its pretty dark. Its a bit of pain, but one I can live with. It should have had Micrsoft Home and Student 2010 pre-loaded.
