Review Dell Inspiron 15-3521-0620 Notebook
« on: June 12, 2013, 10:11:56 »
Tough cookie. Outside of the mainstream models 15R and 17R we discovered the basic version of the current Inspiron 15. It presents itself without alu-finish but in bare plastic. Technically speaking, the cost-cutting Inspiron is even a bit better than the polished R sister-models. Roughly trimmed plastic for an overcharged price of 540 euros or a well concealed bargain?

Buyer beware! I had a terrible "customer service" experience this afternoon, and really feel that I need to share it with you:

My son received a Dell laptop, as a gift while he was training at Fort Benning this summer. After returning home, he excitedly set-up his new computer. He only used it a few times and the screen went BLANK. We called the store, and they directed us to Dell support. After working with a Dell tech, they decided the screen was defective, and they would replace it. The next day, the shipper showed up with a call tag, we packed the laptop up in the provided box and sent it off to the repair depot. Today, I received a call claiming WE damaged the screen and that they would fix it for $258. I explained it was not damaged when it left here. And that the screen quit working BEFORE it left here, and it was under warranty. But, the technicians and supervisors would not believe me, nor support the product. After multiple phone calls, to various departments, I was always transferred back to repair department, with the same results. I'm VERY disappointed in Dell's service, or actually, the LACK OF SERVICE. Dell's support had no other response beyond the script, and no solution. So, now we will be getting our DEFECTIVE computer returned to us BROKEN, and unusable after using it just a few times. I will NEVER buy a Dell product again. In my opinion, Dell support and customer service are UNACCEPTABLE! If you are looking for a new computer, laptop, monitor, etc., I would recommend looking elsewhere.

What does your shitty Dell experience have to do with this laptop *specifically*? Are you just trolling forums to bitch about Dell's support? Big deal - you got poor support. It happens to everyone. Your post has NOTHING to do with this specific laptop.

I bought this laptop days ago, I think the battery test is incorrect!.. I upgraded to windows 8.1 and downloaded all updated drivers that took me over 6 hours.. The battery excelent.

Dell Inspiron 3521: Do not buy this laptop! It is not good. It is ok at best. I had a Sony Vaio for 4 years and I only switched cause it was starting to look a little worn and I gave it to one of my employees for work. However, I am now on the verge of trading her. This thing is always slow, has hangups, and the more annoying things about this laptop are the little things and adjustments.
1. Windows 8: this is not their fault, but I miss windows 7 so much especially cause it ran smooth on my previous cpu. Windows 8 is for tablets and phones, not for laptops or desktops. With this laptop, it takes an extra step and time now just to find a document or start excel instead of the previous win 7. Even after getting better acquainted with W8, it is still annoying, does not work well with the slowness of this machine, and the touchpad is too sensitive for all the new "tricks" of W8.
2: Unnecessary changes: Conventional headsets no longer work. Only a headset with a single jack for mic and speakers. After 4 months, teh jack no longer works, so now I have to purchase another headset (USB) to get it to work.
Speakers are not good. They are ok at best and high volume sounds worse as it gets higher.
No VGA connection. They moved right to HDMI so you will have to get an adapter. Even my old Vaio from 4 years ago had both connections. Now it is a pain since I try to watch youtube videos on my monitor, but I can't use the speakers. I have to plug a headset into the HDMI adapter. Clicking the buttons is loud and annoying. It is not easy to work in a quiet environment or with my girlfriend in the room who is napping or trying to concentrate so I always bring a mouse.
Pros: Battery is pretty good, the screen is nice, Its good for watching movies with earphones, and its laid out well with its size/ functionality.
However, I would not purchase this laptop again. Too many issues too soon and I'm just not impressed with it.
