Summary: Do not buy this computer. I was a happy owner for about two years, until the thing broke. Since then, I've found out how hard it is to get repaired. Local repair people couldn't fix it, so I sent it back to Dell. Initially, they told me they couldn't fix it either (what?) and were sending it back.
Summary: Almost a year to the day I bought this model and the hard drive failed. This is a very unreliable computer so buyer beware. The more I learn about this DELL computer the more I'm surprised they ask so much for them.
Feature rich product but the wireless card is terrible
Amazon Customer, Amazon
17 February 2014
Summary: The product has a lot of great features, but if you're going to use the wireless card for connectivity you're in trouble. Dell wireless cards 1703 and 1704 do not work well. I stopped using my xps one after countless unsuccessful service calls. It's a very expensive paperweight.
Summary: I loved it, (not Windows 8 part of it), but the computer itself... Maybe the monitor leg is a bit too big and lacks of flexibility in number of ways you can adjust it, but for my desk as a desktop computer was OK. Then it started...First on one occasion..
Summary: Windows 8 sucks. Touch screen is a ridiculous feature - 27" of smudges, fingerprints, grease smears - WHY? Windows 8 sucks. Buggy system in general. Then, I got the multi-colored flashing screen of death - no safe mode, reboot or bios access. Dell sent a tech to replace mobo.
Summary: Like most of the reviewers, I was tempted by the specs on the computer and the form factor of an All-In-One. I bought the $2,699 ($3,000) version. Received it quickly in two days, set it up with the user accounts, watched it lock on the Dell screen after the first reboot. That was a Tuesday.
