M. Choi, Amazon

  • Summary: One day, I turned it on, and just black screen appears. All I can see is the cursor sign. I can only run it in safe mode, and I haven't even used it that long. I'm appalled by how short it lasted..

Terrible Customer Service

J. Kramer, Amazon
14 June 2011
  • Summary: I bought a Dell XPS 17 directly from Dell. It came with a defective screen. So I called Dell. The screen replacement was on back order, but they said they could ship me a replacement computer with identical specs immediately. I received the replacement computer just two days later.

could've been great - things keeping getting worse

Alex "average joe", Amazon
22 May 2011
  • Summary: My old Dell 8600 was on it's way out so I was looking for the next machine to replace it. I keep my computer for a long time, so I wanted to get the best I could get. I also didn't plan on carrying it around, so I wanted a large screen size. This machine looked like it fit the bill.
