Dell's service was good in that respect as the computer detected the problem ...

Kindle Customer, Amazon
8 January 2015
  • Summary: I always went with budget e-machines and had no problems. I upgrade my computer every 3-4 years. This time around, for whatever reason, i went with the Dell XPS 8500. What a piece of junk. Within six months I had catastrophic hard drive failure.

Computer OK but...

Thumb, Amazon

  • Summary: I usually build my own computers but when my 10 year old XP box started to go on the blink I didn't have the time to research and build another one so I bought this Dell. Although the computer works well, the smartphone look and layout of the OS(Windows 8) is just horrible.

Beware of what is inside.

Cowswithguns, Amazon
28 November 2012
  • Summary: I bought this on Black Friday, thinking that I had got myself a bargin, and a decent platform from which to upgrade... Before it had arrived, I already had in my mind that I would upgrade the video card, as even my old video card could out perform the GTX 640.

Dell XPS 8500 Desktop with Windows 7 professional

woofpac Ldr, Amazon

  • Summary: 12:20PM 09/05/2012 First I wish to state that I gave this product only 2 stars because I do not like what I saw or what little I know about the Dell XPS 8500. I have just, today, opened the boxes that contained all of the hardware I ordered from Amazon on the sixth of August.
