I wanna jump in on this, I have had a couple of problems with Dell over the years, but between this forum and tech support, problems have ALWAYS been resolved.

Re: Dont buy Dell computers,save your nerves!!!!

It's kinda funny: Posting "Do not buy a Dell" on a Dell forum.

Usually members of the Dell forum bought their Dells before coming here, so, it's too late.

In Fact, I Got my first Dell Mar.29, 2002, and thanks to a link in the AOL screen, I found Dell support, and joined in June. Of course, I don't have AOL anymore, and am dropping Earthlink as my IP, because I got Verizon DSL.

Without bothering to say what type and model I can neither agree nor disagree.

However SFF means to me SMALL FAILS FAST.

I have never had good luck with low profile systems. They overheat and in general are a problem for me.

I do not work for Dell. I too am a user.

The forum is primarily user to user, with Dell employees moderating

In my experience, 99% of the complains like that are completely user error. Granted, sometimes people will get defective units, but more often then not people simply aren't using them correctly.

I get at least 2-3 people a day that come up and complain about how much they hate their dell and most of the time if they're willing to tell me the problem it turns out they were doing something wrong and are able to fix.

Re: Dont buy Dell computers,save your nerves!!!!

A couple weeks ago, my son was talking to a friend about Dells. His friend had an 8400 and complained it was the worst computer they'd ever owned. After asking why, he told my son their system was very slow, IE wouldn't open or run properly, etc. My son graciously offered to take a look. It took him three hours to remove literally hundreds of viruses, trojans, spyware programs, etc., then he installed AVG, Zone Alarm and the usual spyware programs.

Now suddenly they love their Dell.

Re: Dont buy Dell computers,save your nerves!!!!

I get lots of calls from people who complain of slowness.  Invariably, they either don't have antivirus or firewall software.  One dude had 1800 processes running!  A quick glance at his temp internet files showed that he was apparently browsing every porn site ever created.  Great places to pick up drive-by trojans and viruses.   I agree, users are usually the primary cause of system instability.
