Review of XP 8300
 
This is my 4th computer from Dell and I was satisfied with the previous computers but not this one. It has repeatedly crashed on me (4 times in 4 months). Customer service has been mixed at best (appears that everything has been outsourced to India). For example, the computer needed a new disk and I asked that it be overnighted to me, the customer service rep refused and said that it would take 3-4 business days. It took several phone calls and online chats to get it overnighted (several day...

Defective construction
 
Ethernet network connectivity issue started in two months. Two remote fixes and motherboard replacement were useless. In past I bought many Dell machines. Will never buy again without checking for opinions.

Powerful system, great value, but not without bugs
 
I purchased the new Dell XPS 8300 to replace a four year old Dell Inspiron desktop. I have both laptops and desktops, but prefer desktops for things like ripping music, storing media and photo / video editing. I purchased the desktop with the following configuration: i5-2320 processor, 8 GB of DDR3 RAM, ATI Radeon 6450 Video Card with 1 GB Memory, 1.5 TB 7200 RPM Hard Drive and DVD +/- RW burner. The desktop is very quick - it can rip a DVD in about 1/3 of the time of my old desktop (Intel Co...

Dell XPS Desktop
 
I've only had this for a week, so it's hard to say if there's any major problems with it. But so far, it's been awesome! It's a refurbished item, for a discount, which is great, runs quietly, really fast and perfect for what my wife needs, couldn't be any happier.

Everyone seems to be having problems but I
 
have not had any problems with mine that were due to it being built or set up improperly. Maybe the reason is because the first thing I always do is back up the drive, reformat it, and load Linux on it. I have seen so many blue screens of death in my life that I have become allergic to Microsoft products. Microsoft = garbage. This computer is now running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and it's so frickin' fast it's incredible. With 8 CPU cores available I simply cannot stress the processor.I di...

DELL IS SLIPPING
 
This computer is a headache. I've owned several Dell Computers over the past 15 yearsand all have worked very well, but I cannot say the same for this one. The biggest problem is thatit hangs 5-15 seconds at a time and during that time there isn't much to do but stare at the screen.I've been on the phone with the India Dell technicians at least four times for at least an hour per timeand try as they may, they cannot solve the problem. The last time we did a total restor...
