Original review: Jan. 1, 2021

My very first home computer was a Dell and to this day I have remained a Dell owner. The computers and peripherals have stood the test of time and I've never been disappointed with their products and support when needed. Techs always seem knowledgeable and happy to help with any problem or question no matter how big or small. Would recommend them whole heartedly, in fact I did just yesterday to a home appliance person that came to my house.

I use to go through computers like wildfire. Everyone that I had had would do a fatal crash, hard drive burn up, motherboard no longer working, etc. Finally purchased an all in one Dell. I've had this computer for over 6 years now and it is still running great! Certainly got my money's worth out of it. Had expandable slots for memory also. Very pleased and when the time comes to buy another desktop I will only look at Dell!

I have had at least three Dell computers, including laptops and desktops. My present laptop is sturdy and travels well with little if any trouble. My present desktop is actually a small, shelf size model that fits nicely on the shelf of my desk. It not only performs well but only takes up the space of a fair size book. I am very satisfied.

I Got an all-in-one computer and it just has a computer screen that has all the components of the computer in it. My grandsons and my granddaughter who's still going to school they're having trouble with it, take the long time to load up. I wished I had a gotten the computer screen and the hard drive are separate because of all the issues.

Purchased a Dell desktop when I retired. The computer guru where I worked recommended it and said it was a great price. Only downside was I had to purchase a new monitor as my old one was really old. It has been trouble-free. My grandson uses it for his gaming and is happy.

I have used my touch screen all in one Dell desktop for 9 years and it is still going strong. This pc has outlasted my expectations and keeps on working. I will buy another Dell when the time comes for replacement.

Spoke to an extremely rude representative, Robin **, from DELL who refused to connect me with a "supervisor" or someone else who could help out with my situation. Dell had supposedly cancelled my order because of an issue on their end. Order was placed successfully as initial email from Dell acknowledged. Tried returning email but no response. Now my item had be sold, and even though Robin suggested there was a "similar" item available, it would now be an additional $200 that I would have to pay.

The web cam was not working so I called Dell after confirming that I had a valid warranty in full force. Very long, frustrating, stressful story that stretches over 3 weeks and is still open-ended, my computer has been diagnosed with a faulty hard drive and a non-functional camera. This is after over 20 hours on the phone and a ridiculous number of pointless emails with "support" (and I use the word in its lightest form), "level 3 technicians", "Customer Care", "Escalated Customer Care", and over 17 Dell representatives (all in India), and the replacement of the hard drive and web cam.

The computer is in the same condition as when I originally called Dell. Technicians were incompetent, supervisors/managers rude and aggressive and chauvinistic, and useless. Absolutely no respect for confidentiality or privacy. Beware of the fact that if a part is replaced under warranty they will either demand the original part be returned or you have to pay additional fees. Terrible company with horrendous employees and unreliable product.

I ordered my Alienware desktop through Dell website on October 16th. They said that the order will be delivered around November 2nd. I contacted them a week after I ordered it to see what is the status of the order and to see if it would be late. They emailed me back saying the product is in production and he moved it to expedited shipping. Which is really nice for customer service to do that. That is why I gave another star. They did send me another email after I gave them the customer service review. I gave them five stars because they expedited or they will expedite my order instead of having it go through standard shipping. The next email they sent me was right after within 24 hours.

The customer support said that sorry for the inconvenience it will be sent November 9th instead of November 2nd. I don't understand why it takes almost 4 weeks to ship a computer when most of the components you just snap it in. I understand the China virus crisis but you have to not rely on the customer to give you sympathy because you can't figure out a way to get the product out faster, even before the pandemic they had a month before they would ship the item. I am reading and watching on YouTube and Facebook and Twitter Etc. The company really needs to work on that because it shows that they don't care.

I looked at the Google reviews and it shows there positive which is not right when you look at other websites for the company reviews. The other review websites tell that they are severely lacking in shipping times and price. That's why I'm reviewing this on this website, I very thankful for it because of Google somehow has rigged reviews. I hate to say that but it's fishy, if anyone goes through this with their bad shipping times bad review them so they can work on that. I and others that I talk to it's not fair. I read about on social media and reviews except Google. When you read the reviews they explain it like it was okay that it was 4 weeks late or two weeks late Etc and that's not okay to us consumers AKA customers.

I bought a new Dell 7470 (all in one) in March 2020. Just a couple of months later I faced the following problems with this device: 1. The mouse stopped responded regularly, 2. The whole system was freezing often, 3. I couldn't open photos, etc. I contacted official Dell service department in Athens, I spoke with two technicians, besides they were not supportive and rather rude, they did not solve the problems, they denied to send a technician to check and repair the device even guaranty was and is still in force. Additionally while buying this pc, from the shop they told me that this five years guaranty in case of any malfunction includes presence of a Dell technician in my working place for repair and further that, the replacement of the damaged device for as long as its repair is needed.

In few words: Unacceptable service by Dell in Greece.

I bought this computer on November 25, 2019. It is a real disaster: Extremely slow, when trying to work it stops and restarts. The sellers could not repair it (VComputer Factory S.A.). At this time, is useless and I cannot even give it away. Never again a Dell product.

Purchased an aio computer from Dell 5 weeks ago, it arrived 3 weeks later and when opened I found the computer stand missing without which I cannot use the computer. Made a service request and reported fact and urgently required they post one to me. That was 2 weeks ago and all they keep telling me that it is in progress. This is not good enough on a purchase that cost over $2000. This will be the last time I purchase a Dell product, they have proved unreliable and their call center is as bad, now not answering emails and cannot phone as I was on the phone for 2 hours before I had to give up.

Terrible. Stay away from this overrated by their own people. Their so called best customer service is only based on talks. No action in reality. Their prices are always a few hundred dollars more than other computer companies. I ordered 17 inch 2 in 1 Inspiron laptop and it has been delivered fast enough to make me happy but laptop had defects like a gap between the cam and the frame 8. Have been refunded fast. Also for the second chance I wanted to give them I built online r11 alienware gaming desktop. Cost 2500 Canadian and it has been delivered fast again but this one didn't even turn on to transmit the picture to my screen.

I called technical help on the phone spending 50 minutes with a girl in India asking me to do all different moves. They try to fix it on the phone cluelessly. We decided to return it in the end .. Don't believe those marketing promises and just buy locally. This is what one of their super wisest told me on the phone named Mohammed.

I ordered a Dell Alienware desktop in March and received finally received a delivery in July, which is missing the monitor, mouse and keyboard. Called twice a week for the last 3 weeks and am tired of empty promises from Dell staff who reassure me they will ring back with an update within 24hrs. Still waiting- so disappointed, frustrated and worried I will never receive the remaining items.

Overpriced and claims of exceptional quality that are overstated and usually end up with mediocre ratings. Extra charges for almost everything. Pricing all products higher than most competitors. Constantly trying to force use of company websites in order to force-feed overpriced extraneous accessories that are not needed in order to inflate pricing.

I've been a Dell customer for years. I had gone away from Dell in the past because I was no longer happy. But my last 2 desktops have been a Dell. I need them for work and they have been the best desktop computers I've purchased in years. The quality was wonderful and the prices of both desktops were very affordable for my at-home-business.

DVD, Cd, player/recorder is incessantly noisy. Even had them replace the drive but it is still noisy enough to not hear the sound over the player noise. :-( All other parts seem to be working well. I ordered extra connectors front and back and they all seem to connect with all devices I wish to attach to the tower.

The computer is reliable. When it breaks however, and I call Dell where I have a service contract, it is another story. I am dealing with India. I have difficulty understanding the person. It usually is a 2 to three hour production. They try, but in many cases they are not knowledgeable. My second issue is the price of the service contract. I think it is high. When you renew they treat you like you are a new customer. The price is higher for the first year. A ridiculous policy.

I purchased a Dell Inspiron 3671 through their Certified Refurbished store chat, and explained that I must have the ability to install a secondary Dell 4TB drive with any system recommended. After a long discussion in which I was talked into also purchasing their "Premium" Support Service, I received my desktop that was not only very cheaply made (the entire computer weighed less than 8lbs.) but did not include a required power cable in which to provide power for my 4TB DELL drive, but also lacked the required mounting bracket for it.

I was assured by their customer service that it was included in the purchase price and would be shipped with the unit, however no their "Premier" Service Representative is telling me that I would have to pay extra for the cable and bracket that I already paid for!! Needless to say I am going back to HP and will not be using Dell for my home or business in the future, as they refuse to honor their agreements or support their product sales. BUYER BEWARE!

The size is perfect for my tiny workspace, the monitor is ample, providing the clarity of a larger unit. With practically NO WIRES! The mouse and keyboard chip make connection simple. It does everything I need with ease and the tech support from Microsoft is awesome.

Never buy here. They frauded me. Told me I can exchange or trade my computer at any time - no fees, no limitations, no problem, no restocking fee and can cancel at any time no problem. This was a lie to grab my card number and when I phoned in to get a better deal they try to give me the deal but refused to cancel my products that were agreed to over fraudulent terms and refused to support its end of the deal that I made over the phone to the agent before giving my card number that was the terms I agreed to. This is fraud.

It's own by people that don't care how they get the card number and they won't take the computer back. They shipped the computer even tho they said they reroute it back they didn't reroute the computer. They didn't hold up to the terms I was promised and they still trying to make me take this computer that I didn't agree to. Warning for every one - Dell has been taken over by other people and all they do is scam like the irs scam but for dell now they bought it over bc they guys frauded me just as bad and refuse to do anything about it.

Dell Desktop has been a go to for me for many years. It is reliable and a work horse. Most last for many years with little to no issues. Set up is relatively easy even for the non geek and CS support is also good. The trick is to make sure you have enough memory and hard drive storage to meet your needs. Speed is good with the right processor. I opted for Webroot as protection as well as system mechanic to help me keep everything working as it should.

I've had it for 2 years and heartily recommend it. I haven't had any problems with it. However I did take out one of their overpriced contracts but did not renew it. The contract sales are high pressure.

I have had my Dell desktop for over three years and have yet to have a problem. I love the speed and clarity from the hard drive and updates are very easy. Dell's customer service is outstanding and I've only had to speak with them one time. This was about registration, not computer problems..

The XPS 8930 i5 is now a fairly powerful and reliable computer. At one time it was suggested that you get an i7, but that was pretty expensive. While it may be the necessary for someone that does extreme gaming or calculations, using it for a home office with W10 and Office, watching videos or streaming, and reading emails does not require that kind of power.

I bought my computer 10 months ago along with 4-years of full tech support. The tech support is awesome. I thought sales was too pushy and I would suggest you be ready to push back if you are just going over specs and want to think about it. Get the Killer wifi. I am happy that I did as there are never any connection issues. Computers are always expensive, but my last Dell lasted 10 years and don't see why this won't last that long. However, I wish I had sprung for the solid-state as that could make a difference. Get an APC battery backup so you don't have to worry about surges and lightning strikes damaging your motherboard or disc, or losing work as you get time to finish what you were working on, saving, and shut down.
