HAS NAGGING PROBLEMS

B Ardell Young, Amazon
1 January 2013
  • Summary: My Dell Studio configuration is similar to Vincent Martin's Studio (other review). The differences are more ram (8GB) and different wireless card (Dell 5620). PRO'S Screen size, back light, like having a portable desktop. CON'S Not enough USB ports (2 plus one that is part USB/SATA)which sometimes will recognize a USB device but other times, it will not. I use USB hubs but one of the ports has failed and the other is failing.

I will never purchase a Dell Laptop again!

  • Excerpt: I purchased this laptop less than a year ago online in the green color.  I got one of the higher end models (RAM, etc.) with it.  I was hoping after what id paid for it, the computer would be in excellent condition for at least the first week.  The day i got it, everything was perfect, all manuals included and all.  About 2 days later my eject button on the touch buttons would constantly try to eject, but nothing was in the drive.

The dell studio 17 pc notebook is a disaster

  • Excerpt: The quality of the actual laptop is extremely cheap I have had this computer for a little over a year and because of the cheap quality my computer has had many physical damages, one of which i just opened my computer and there is some kind of damage and I was told it is due to heat. My computer stays in my room, but I do live in arizona so the heat shouldnt affect how my computer looks. My mouse pad has stopped working and the color to my computer is fading.

Big disappointment

EUREKAKNEW, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: What can I say about this computer? A huge disappointment!! I was excited when I first purchased this laptop, but I was quickly disappointed and shattered after taking it for a test drive. Despite its i5 processor, the laptop was not running as zippy as I had expected it to be.The computer is also much heavier than other laptops with the same screen size. I wanted a laptop for its easy portability not a desktop to carry around when I am traveling.

Dell Studio 1735-Some cool features, lots of not cool problems.

  • Excerpt: Dell Studio 1735 Laptop.  Good Stuff - Looks cool, has nifty media buttons above the keyboard. Love the number pad. Lots of USB ports and all ports and hookups are on the sides rather than in the back.  Clear, well lit large screen.  Now for the Bad - No physical eject button for the disc drive, if you are having software issues, you can't get the dang disc out.  Comes loaded with Vista which is a huge problem in itself.

  • Summary: I bought this laptop 2 and half years ago and when I first ordered it I was super excited because it looked like a fantastic laptop and I thought if a laptop was going to cost £450 I would be great. Oh how I was wrong, within 4 days of having it I had to reinstall the O/S and I had to manually install all the drivers from about 5 separate discs. I'm not sure if you have to manually install the drivers, but it was very tedious and took hours.
  • Pros: The screen is nice, keyboard is the best I've used and the touchpad has a nice feel.
  • Cons: The build quality is awful.

Attention hyper fragile !!!

  • Summary: Bonjour à tous, Attention ne vous laisser pas abuser par l'aspect engageant de ce portable. Il est certes d'un bel aspect avec de bonnes performances malgré la lourdeur du système VISTA d'origine. Mais surtout,il est extrêmement FRAGILE. Une simple ouverture/fermeture de la partie supérieure sur la partie inférieure 3 fois par jour ,entraine au bout d'un an d'utilisation , une fissure accompagnée peu après d'une cassure,au niveau des charnières de rotation.
  • Pros: aspect engageant de ce portable . Les performances correctes,le graphisme ( même sile son laisse à d
  • Cons: Grande fragilité méccanique  +  cordon d'alimentation hyper fragile  !

  • Summary: Bonjour, cela fait maintenant un an que j'ai un ordinateur dell studio 17. J'étais vraiment déçue par la qualité de cet ordinateur portable. Au niveau du système je ne me plains pas mais cet appareil est extrémement FRAGILE. Le plastique de l'alimentation s'est cassé au fil des semaines par conséquent il était impossible de recharger mon ordinateur, de plus la "coque" de l'ordinateur s'est également abimée sur les cotés de l'écran Le son est très mauvais (contrainte...
