No ownership transfer and problems early on!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
25 January 2015
  • Summary: The PC was initially a good system at a very nice price. However the ownership wasn't transferred to me as soon as I bought it and Tech Support refused to help me leading to the issue at hand: I have a desktop which is not even turning on, but Dell doesn't seem to want to help until the ownership transfer happens. I would have recommended them, but this has been an ongoing problem for a while.

  • Summary: Very disappointed this is the second computer equipped with Windows 8.1 this year and each has its individual quirk personalities that are more than mildly annoying. The Dell will go into the power save sleep mode and randomly will not wake up and must be restarted by holding the power button down this happens about one in five times.

DO NOT BUY IF YOU PLAN ON PLAYING GAMES.

Kellie Peterson, Amazon
17 December 2014
  • Summary: A honest review on this computer after having it for a few months. I got this computer and it worked fantastic. I used it for music production and digital art and it does the job perfectly and fast! But, this computer was advertised as a "gaming pc". This is not true and do NOT buy this computer even for light gaming or a MMO such as "World of Warcraft".

  • Summary: The computer does not work right after few months of light use. It keeps on frozen after every update! We have used four Dell computers in the past and would not buy Dell computer again. At this moment, we also have one 3 y/o HP, 6 and 4 y/o Toshiba laptops, and one 4 y/o laptop Samsung.

SHIP WINDOWS 8 (NOT Windows 7)!

Justin Pierce, Amazon
6 November 2014
  • Summary: I bought this specifically because it says it's a Windows 7 OS machine, as some of my vital programs aren't Windows 8 compatible and this had the specs that let me skip to 10. However, this ships as a Windows 8 machine and you don't know until you've opened the box. I'm debating whether it's worth the trouble of returning it. Buyer beware!

Product description is misleading :(

Anton, Amazon
9 September 2014
  • Summary: For this price it looks like not a bad deal, but I'm returning it. 1. It was stated in product description that it has 500GB SSD drive. Instead of that there is 32GB mSSD. Miracle didn't happen. 2. I doubt that it's a new item, most likely it's refurbished. At startup I saw that Windows wasn't shut down correctly. Next, service tag 96JSCZ1 says it was purchased on March 2014, so 1 year warranty will expire on March 2015. That's a bad news.

AA, Amazon
9 September 2014
  • Summary: Sound card did not work; I asked tech support, but they found that the computer is under different name [got computer from 'Laptop deals and More']. Other functions are working, but what is a 'game computer' without the sound! Awaiting to fix this issue of name transfer, followed by my call to tech support. I will update this later.

Bad apple!!!

hari, Amazon
6 September 2014
  • Summary: Item arrived after much anticipation, but for a disappointment. After painstakingly installing all the software including Dragon naturally speaking , which took 3 hrs to install, found out the system is very slow to respond and has a humming noise from the power supply unit. Also noticed the HDMI port on the graphics card is not letting me fit in HDMI cable.

Terrible operating system!

Steve Eshleman, Amazon
27 August 2014
  • Summary: I do not have any specific complaints about the computer, but the Microsoft 8 operating system is terrible. It is slow, unnatural , non-intuitive , and eats internet broadband service! Microsoft operating systems have been getting worse and worse since XP, the last good one. My next computer will be an Apple. The iPad works so much better than computers with Microsoft operating systems.
