Power supply is heavy!

Sharky0818, Dell

  • Summary: The power supply is heavy! I am replacing my Samsung Series 9 NP900X4D which is very light and thin (notebook and power supply). So, it is a lot heavier than the Samsung. I was very happy with my Samsung but the monitor deteriorated after less than two years (don't get Samsung though!). I travel often so weight matters.

Great Unit Except Keyboard

cjallen, Dell

  • Summary: This unit is lightweight, fast and looks beautiful. The screen is bright and the main unit is quiet. There are some programs that don't do well with the super high-res graphics, as the text can be very small.

Sold as new but feels like refurbished.

Igor Sorokin, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: I just received the item. First impression: well designed and made. A little heavier than I expected but not too bad. The screen is not as 'shockingly impressive' as advertised. The colors and the range of screen adjustments are very good. However fonts look different in the system elements and in a browser (I used Chrome). System elements fonts look nice and smooth, in the browser they look really bad (maybe adjustment is needed). It's very fast (as expected).

Not what I expected.

Natalie Paniashvili, Amazon
19 August 2014
  • Summary: Let me be as clear as possible. Good things: 1) Full HD Display 2) It is not a 3230M Processor, it is 2.70 GHz Quadcore Inter i-5-3340M, which is better but please fix the description. 2) Not getting as hot as my previous Dell XPS Laptop 3) Nice backlit keyboard 4) Decent battery life Bad things: 1) From the day I bought this laptop - it had a serious Wi-Fi problem. I had to call Dell customer service and bring over a technician to replace the network card.

Good, but a bit disappointing.

Geyser, Dell
19 August 2014
  • Summary: I picked up the one with 512gb of ssd. The first one I picked up had some light bleed on the bottom edge but the next one did not. The second one is great, the performance is stellar in every way expect the over saturated screen. The color options didnt do anything to help with that so I had to resort to manually turning down the saturation while comparing it to a certain other computer that everyone online told me to get because I use it for photo and video editing.

Good laptop with one big flaw...

someguy254, Amazon
11 August 2014
  • Summary: This was my first laptop and I wanted solid performer all-around. The aluminum and kevlar chassis is beautiful. The computer starts up within seconds and day-to-day operations are fast enough for you, Old Timer. Battery life is a good five hours or so (much less than Dell claims it to be but not too bad, all things considered). The one big flaw is the coil whine. Do an internet search and you find an article and some forums on the loud whining sound this laptop makes.

Missing Teeth

Fred "Fred", Amazon
7 August 2014
  • Summary: While I like this Dell XPS15 in general, there are some rather glaring deficiencies that prevent me from giving it the full five stars it would otherwise have garnered: it's missing a wired Ethernet port and a DVD drive. OK, I'm being overly critical here--if I were being severe in my review, I would be reviewing Windows 8.1 which would have been good for docking one half star, at least. But Dell doesn't make Windows so that's another tale for another day.

No numeric keypad

Patrice54, Costco
7 August 2014
  • Summary: Great laptop, but this 15.6" laptop does not have a numeric keypad on the right of the keyboard, because Dell located the keyboard in the center.
  • Cons: no numeric keypad

A real disappointment

WesKiwi, Dell
31 July 2014
  • Summary: I have been a Dell consumer for a long time. Over the past 20 years I have purchased about 10 Dell computers for personal and business use. This is by far the most disappointing experience I have had, and that is saying a lot.

Overall satisfied

jack543, Dell
14 July 2014
  • Summary: Upgraded from my 5 year old Dell laptop. This computer is incredibly light. I enjoy everything about it except a coil whine heard when scrolling on the screen when the computer is fully charged and plugged in. This appears to be a known semi-common issue that hasn't been fixed. If the computer is unplugged after a full charge then there is no whine.
