Pros: Purchased directly from Dell, however, it makes sense to post my experience here, since the unit is sold here as well. This is an expensive unit intended for professional use and you'd expect that, at this level, quality control is paramount. Wrong!
Cons: Stopped working within a week. Banding like it was less then 8 bit color and scintillating pixels all over the screen. It took two full days, 3 separate chat sessions and 8 toll free numbers which generated 3 more for a grand total of 11... to get someone to determine that the unit was defective and needed to be exchanged. Impressive right? Then came the second wave of passing the buck! No concrete information of the actual delivery date for the exchange and 3 emails, 2 chats and 3 toll free numbers later, I still had no answer. It was in the near future, just not sure when.....Very impressive indeed!
Other Thoughts: Dell customer service and support departments are totally disconnected and that translates into a reality of endless hours in both phone and chat queues, to inevitably be redirected from one number to another and so on and so on. Clearly, Dell has no clue how to integrate customer service and support in order to help their customers. For this reason, I would strongly advise you to stay away from this or any other Dell product unless of course, you don't mind getting the short end of the stick.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
Pros: Eventually... directX 12 but that's way down the road....
Cons: This product is really a Beta version at best. How else can you explain the issues with Nvidia cards and drivers? Secondly, it's riddled with spyware and I find that truly offensive! It also omits your right to select which updates you want on YOUR COMPUTER. Another issue that irks me is, why the heck are they reinventing the wheel with the behind the scenes interface? The previous layout of the control panel worked so why change it? Being familiar with any given software makes us more productive, change for the sake of change is just dumb!
Other Thoughts: I initially installed it over WIN 7 Ultimate and when finished, the Nvidia driver and the card settings were all wrong, so after fixing that issue, the very next reboot the response was "Windows has encountered an error" and "standby while Windows looks for a solution" then: Windows could not resolve the issue but rebooting your system often resolves the problem" REALLY! Then on the next reboot: "Windows has encountered an error" .....the dreaded infinite loop....Good thing I kept an image of my system with trusty Macrium software and my machine is back to WIN 7 with no issues.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Exceptional Speed. Windows experience max score 7.9
Cons: Although half the price of what it was when it first came out, it is still expensive in my opinion. This of course is true of all SSD offerings. New technology = $$$$
Other Thoughts: Had to upgrade from Intel 510 250GB as it was getting full with apps. Now unhooked and kept with mirror image (compressed) of drive C for back up.READ FULL REVIEW
