Good Value

ALFRED RILEY, Amazon
19 October 2013
  • Summary: For the price point this computer offered a bevy of features for a home pc. Easy to setup, incredibly responsive, while being ultra quiet.

Count Valentine, Amazon

Eiswein, Amazon

Good hardware, Windows 8 a letdown.

Sleepless in Sea Cliff, Amazon
18 August 2013
  • Summary: For the price, this is a powerful computer. It has a large hard drive, fast processor, and the video card can handle some 3D video games. There are plenty of USB ports for expansion, and there are PCI express slots and drive bays available inside the case.

Windows 8

jr, Amazon
6 July 2013
  • Summary: The Dell Computer is a fine box and works great. I wish it had Windows 7 in it, rather than, 8. It's a challenge to get up to speed and Windows 8 seems to be rather flakey besides.

Good buy, but poorly vented

Seaman "Mo", Amazon
13 June 2013
  • Summary: I like the PC and it's a good value, but it has horrible ventilation. My video card overheats like crazy. The fan supplies and venting are inadequate for the machine. I currently have the cover off and a small house fan blowing on the board! I have not had any freezes since taking it off.

Hate Win 8 but this system is okay

Moonrise "Berner Lover", Amazon
26 April 2013
  • Summary: System seems to be typical Dell. Runs fine right out of the box and was easy to set-up. But I hate Win 8 environment - needs major tweaks. If you get this system, try going to Dell and getting Win 7 loaded on it, if they will.

Dead on arrival

C. Coburn "Chris", Amazon
30 November 2012
  • Summary: This computer wouldn't even boot when it arrived. Only after a visit from a Dell serviceman to replace most of its insides did it work. Now it appears to be fine, but it was a very disappointing start.

Good specs, too much noise from the PSU fan

Meng Qi, Amazon
3 November 2012
  • Summary: Everything about the XPS 8500 is great, but I had to return mine because the PSU makes too much noise. And the PSU space is too small. My silent Seasonic PSU could not fit in.
