"So disappointed with Dell. Got this laptop as a birthday present from my husband and I was so excited when it arrived. We ordered it with all the bells and whistles, as I wanted something I could use for a few years.
After over 2 hours with tech support (the first 23 minutes was just waiting for the next available tech), they still couldn't get this thing to work properly.
I am so frustrated with Dell. They still couldn't tell me what it was wront but it couldn't connect to the internet and every action was interminably slow. The tech got it connected once, but then the processor dragged and disconnected itself.
It wasn't the modem or router because we had other devices online and they were working fine, but we rebooted the router anyway. No help. The processor was hung up and took forever to move and the tech was talking about replacing the motherboard and other components as I got more and more frustrated. It was incredibly slow!
I spent over 2 hours of my time on useless troubleshooting with support and they didn't solve the problem. Is it too much to expect the laptop to work as designed when I unpack it and plug it in?
I am returning this lemon (luckily we got it at Costco), but I wonder what happened to Dell? A victim of their own success?
Don't they even test all these components before they ship the laptop? Sure it looks good, but if it can't perform it's useless. I am so disappointed, and my husband feels so bad that his gift turned out to be a lemon. He wanted to order a replacement of the same model right away, but I am honestly afraid to buy another Dell product. This was so disappointing.
We've been avid Dell users for years, and I recommended their products to friends, family and clients, but no more. I am sad to say that I'm looking at another company's laptops. The quality is just not there in Dell anymore."
"The unit ran for a total of 2 days before going out. After numerous calls to Dell's Technical Service Team, which I would rate as extremely poor mannered and ill equipped to handle anything beyond a simple battery exchange, I am returning the unit to Costco. Hours of frustration on the phone with Dell have shown me that the answer is to take advantage of Costco's return policy. That is the only good thing about this purchase. The sad thing is that I have a Dell desktop that I have yet to unpackage and power up for the first time. Quality control should never be foisted upon the public. It should be built into the product before being presented to the public for purchase."
