really disappointing

  • Excerpt: I was really excited to make this purchase. I always wanted to get an XPS because of the small size (I needed something portable to carry to class) and because it's a gamer computer. I wanted to a computer that can handle my gaming needs. Cosmetics wise, it looks pretty slick. Mine came with Windows Vista, which I don't really care for. At first, everything seems to run fine. After a month, however, things started to fall apart.

Dell 1330: Great until it dies.-And it will. Get a good warranty

  • Excerpt: Before I had problems with this laptop it was great. It ran fast, and quiet. Unfortunately it also ran pretty hot (as a lot of laptops do). But the issue with this model stems from a design flaw. I assume there isn't proper heat shielding as my motherboard died after a few months. Dell was pretty great about having a tech come to my home and replace it. A few months later, the same thing happened. And about a year after that, it happened again.

Problematic laptop.

  • Excerpt: I bought this product three years ago and within a month, there were problems. I have a lot of compatability issues with their drivers and windows vista. Later on, I have gotten problems with the screen going bright and extremely dim during certain times. Their customer service was great since they responded to fix my computer really quickly.

  • Summary: While for the first few months it works fine, problem start to evolve after more than 6 months. Screen is getting dimmer, can't read it outdoor. The startup speed also getting really slow, despite using it only to read news and surf the net. Experience dvd drive collapse more frequent too, Dell Media Direct software keeps popping up.
  • Pros: Nice cool design, cool colour - red. Light and portable.
  • Cons: Sluggish.

poor build quality and incompetent service

  • Summary: Basically the machine is okay, but beware 1) build quality is not good, and 2) technical support is chaotic at best. I originally bought the machine 2 years ago. Within a week the machine had locked completely - malfunction of the finger print reader. Dell's own advice was that I should avoid this function as it was not particularly stable. After some argument Dell agreed to replace the product. This is the laptop I know use, regularly but not frequently.

Dudas sobre una Dell XPS M1330 con la q estaba muy contenta de la compra

PATVIA, MercadoLibre
24 November 2011
  • Conclusion: No sé qué pensar, por que el afuera y alrededor de la máquina está muy bueno, pero casi me muero cuando no podía accionarla y pensé que había perdido todo lo hecho.y tirado mi plata a la basura. yo la precisaba ya,pq la mía anterior era una xps m1330 también y me la habían robado y Dell no vende aquí. por eso no compré esta nueva- ahora no estoy tranquila, o sea q le pondré un disco rígido que tengo y espero todo siga ok y la compra al final me resulte..

problemi di scheda madre

linas65, Ciao
6 December 2009
  • Summary: Posseggo un dell XPS M1330, bella linea, leggerissimo, ma c'è un ma!! Acquistato a fine 2007, ad oggi ho cambiato ben 2 schede madre e due masterizzatori. Da quello che ho capito è che le caratteristiche fisiche dei componenti non sono ben studiate per poter stare all'intero dell'involucro, essendo sottilissimo! Ultima scheda madre cambiata un mese fa e da qualche giorno ho problemi alle porte USB !
  • Pros: pratico
  • Cons: riscalda troppo

Problème de dispersion thermique

luc.alquier, Ciao
3 November 2009
  • Summary: j'ai acheté le Dell XPS M1330 avec la carte nVidia® GeForce® 8400M GS et une batterie 9 cellules, il y a 2 ans et Dell m'a changé depuis : 1 fois la carte mère 2 fois la carte graphique 1 fois la dalle 1 fois le chargeur Lors du deuxième changement de carte mère je pense qu'il ont changé le bios afin de mettre en route plus souvent le ventilateur, fort bruyant au demeurant. Heureusement je bénéficie de l'assurance complete care ce qui permet d'être un peu moins impacté.
  • Pros: Puissance, poids, encombrement, full hd, hdmi
  • Cons: Chauffe

No me resulto

  • Conclusion: La compre con mucho entusiasmo, la pague 5000$ hace casi 2 años y a los 6 meses de vencida la garantia dejo de funcinar. El servicio de reparacion es tedioso, burocrtatico y cariiiiisimo. Casi 2500$ para reemplazar la placa madre (hoy la maquina cuesta 3500$). MAQUINA NO RECOMENDABLE.
  • Pros: Bonita, compacta, de excelente calidad de "plasticos", con buen equipamiento, buena definicion de pantalla
  • Cons: Son conocidos los problemas de calentamietno que posee esta maquina. Se calienta y quema la placa madre. El costo de reparacion vuelve inviable la misma., Una vez vencida la garantia estas muerto, con el tiempo se fue poniendo cada vez mas lenta para arrancar y cargar los programas.
