This review is from: DELL Latitude D630 14.1” Notebook Intel Core Duo 1.80GHz, 2GB Memory, 60GB HDD, DVD-CDRW, Firewire Port, Smart Card Slot, Type 1 / 2 PC Card Slot, Windows 7 Home Premium 32 Bit 18 Months Warranty
Pros: Works good when it does
Cons: - Onboard video chipset overheating issues (Dell is aware of this and only extends an extra year warranty for this problem)
Other Thoughts: We have had over 70% of these D630 with onboard video chipset overheating issues at work. Of the remaining 30% or so its probably just a matter of time before they start acting up. Don't waist your money on this laptop unless the issue has been addressed. And even at $230 your not really getting a good price, this is a very old laptop.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Inexpensive when on sale
Last a long time
Water sealed (no leakage)
Easy to clean
Cons: One clip broke after we tried to open it right after we took it out of the freezer. So if you use them to freeze something I would recomend that you wait a bit before unclipping. Despite having one broken clip it still seals good with 3 out of 4 though.
Other Thoughts: I bought 2 sets of these last year and so far I have been very pleased with them. I meant to give one set as a gift but kept them all for me hehe!
The seals are easy to take out with a small groove that allows you to take a butter knife to take it out easily without damaging them. The containers are easy to clean and after a year of usage they still look like new (unlike so many others I've used)
Just did a test last night by putting some water in it and then shaking it upside down and no water came out, thats after using them for almost a year so the seals seem very durable.
Overall I am very pleased with my purchase and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
Pros: Decent little laptop that works fine until you start experiencing video issues.
Cons: We've had a lot of these Latitudes D620 and D630 with video issues where we've had the motherboard replaced due to nvidia defective GPU chipset. Dell is giving a one year extended warranty only. It doesn't mention which video chipset is used on this one. It also states that it is refurbished which may or may not mean that the problem has been rectified. I have seen in some cases where the motherboard has been replaced with another identical motherboard with same GPU chipset with same issue so the problem is likely to reoccur. Most of the time the problem started after 2 to 3 years of ownership, laptop giving blue screen, freezes or obvious screen issues (lines accross the screen). So before you buy find out which video chipset is used, if its an Nvidia ask if its the same they've been having issues with in these model, if they can't tell you walk away.
Other Thoughts: Before you buy, find out exactly what it is that has been fixed (Refurbished). If its still got an nvidia chipset then find out exactly what model and google it for problems. If no known video problem then the price is ok.READ FULL REVIEW
