The correct one would have been better

Patti L Garber, Amazon
23 April 2014
  • Summary: Only after the PC was setup for me did I discover it was the wrong one. I ordered one with 2T and 16 Ram along with windows 8. I got 1T and 12 Ram along with windows 7. I really didn't want to clear this PC to send it back and the vendor did a good job at making sure I could make do with his additions. I am satisfied with the solution.

Product or customer service?

Frederick K., Amazon
25 January 2014
  • Summary: The first day I received the PC, I was excited so the first thing I wanted to do is crack the case and inspect the goods. Only to my ignorant dismay I didn't see a 32GB SSD as mentioned in the description not only on the sellers page but on Dells. This was one of the sole purposes I purchased this PC. So I inquire to the seller as to the whereabouts of the drive only to not get a response whatsoever, which left me perturbed.

Wrong computer

Gary L. Berry, Amazon
2 January 2014
  • Summary: Between the computer I first purchased, which is the one in the picture and the one I received, which was the same number but not the same computer. The computer I purchased was supposed to have a 1TB hard drive, 16GB of ram and a combo Blu-ray/DVD burner. The one I got had a 2TB hard drive, 12GB of ram and a DVD burner only. I also purchased a 3 year warrantee plan which I haven't received yet. Eventually I might have the computer I ordered.

Would Be Great if!

Phacial, Dell
28 December 2013
  • Summary: I got the computer on 24 December 2013. The USB ports were not functioning properly. On one of the USB 3 ports it ran extremely slow and took several minutes to even recognize my 1 gig passport USB device. While another USB port was much faster. So I called tech support and showed them the issue (they took control of the computer for this) They sent a new cable assembly and a new motherboard. A tech cam on 27 Dec 13 and replaced my motherboard and assembly.

New Dell computer

almost retired "Bob McConnell", Amazon
24 December 2013
  • Summary: Looks pretty, is fast but it has windows 8 in the thing. Didn't know how different 8 is from 7 or even earlier programs. Can't find a darn thing. Will take some getting used to.

Overall Fast Computer

Lucian Loh, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: Good product but it runs at 3.4MHz by default... note in advertisement processor is up to 3.9... a little misleading. Also window index score (w/ AMD 7870 I took out the NVIDIA OEM 645) is around 8.0/8.1 but disk is only at 5.9 (probably due to the older slave 1TB I added). I also have a XPS 7100 & 8700 is much faster...

A little disappointed

Sean O'Skea, Amazon
5 October 2013
  • Summary: I work with CAD drafting and 3D modeling and felt that my old Sony Viao 2.4 was getting a little tired. I considered a BOXX or a major brand workstation but was taken aback by the price tags—most starting in the 2k+ range. After a lot of research I decided to go with the Dell 8700.

New XPS lack build quality

W. Barton, Amazon
4 August 2013
  • Summary: This is the third Dell XPS PC I have bought. I have always been pleased with these computers but this one seems to be cheaply made especially compared to the Dell XPS 8500 I bought a few years ago. The case is flimsy and no where near as easy to access and close as the 8500. It is also about 2/3 the size which makes it more difficult to work inside the case.
