Review Dell Latitude E5540 Notebook
« on: May 07, 2014, 09:08:58 »
Moonlighter. The new generation of Dell's office workhorse, the Latitude E5540, is at the start clad in a black, 15.6 inch suit and with an economic Intel Core i5 processor. Is it a must for the office?

You put the wrong image for viewing angles. It's URL is:

So it obviously comes from Asus review.

After using this computer for about two months I can conclude that it gets blue screen very frequently, the screen flickers when you move it and is very fragile, the graphics card is weak and sound doesn't transmit through a HDMI connection unless the connection is made while the computer is off / in sleep mode. I would not recommend this computer to anyone.

Decent corporate laptop but hate how they mounted hard drive so it requires some PITA disassembly to change it. If you have a corporate Windows PE image to add to the already installed Windows 7, it's a pain as the license key is no where to be found, except on motherboard, and it is OEM locked. This can make deployment of multiple laptops in a corporate environment a bit more difficult than it has to be. I do like the I7 processor, and have found the laptop to be a stable. I don't think the laptop is as rugged as some of the past models. but it has a bit better heat management, speed, battery life, and weight advantage compared to the e6500 series we were using.

After 3 months, the screen was full of scratches from the key board. Connection in dual screen randomly unstable. Do not buy this computer.

 I bought this computer because of the high end Intel processor. The hybrid disk was junk - so I replaced it with a Samsung EV) 256GB SSD. The system is amazingly spiffy with the SSD and the 8GB RAM.

What the laptop severely lacks is quality. The keyboards are extremely flimsy (the left Shift is sticky, and no, I did not pour coffee on it). The speakers are not only abysmal - volume and quality wise, but of late (6 months after purchase), when I go from power to battery, it has started cracking and popping. I have found a workaround - pause the output a few times and it rectifies itself. But it looks like the audio controller may just  break soon. It cannot be a software glitch because it emanates decent audio from Netflix when it wants to.

■ I have a second-hand Dell 6440, which is one step up from the reviewed machine in terms of robustness - unless you need HDMI; this is a much better option for road warriors because it is built like a tank. The only downside is it is a bit heavy.

■ Another alternative (again without HDMI but with Display Port) is the Lenovo ThinkPad (410, 420) with can be had second-hand for under €200. Again, another very solid option that is better than forking out for the reviewed Dell model.
