Some customer reviews of Dell XPS420 Q8200

Most helpful reviews

Wajid, Bedford

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good Value for Money.

Quad Core processor and 3GB RAM, 1TB hard drive and GT 8800 Graphics Card. Can't go wrong.

Very quiet when up and running.

You also get the VGA to DVI connectors, for those of you who still use VGA supported monitors.

Bad points:
You only get Office Works.

I had to reformat the whole drive as I could not allocate any drive space using the disk management, but the restore cd allows you to reinstall the operating system. One thing to bear in mind is do not use partition magic to install other operating systems as this will mean reformatting the drive. Trust me I have done this.

The LCD display could have been better made with more features.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I am very impressed with the XPS420. Being a Dell product it is of exceptional build quality and appearance. The piano black finish is an added extra that wouldn't detract in any environment. The amount of features on the XPS420 are better than on most competitors. All-in-all a very good purchase, especially with the 20" wide screen flat panel monitor.
