    Amazing Computer - Or Is It?

    Here's the deal: The Dell XPS 15 9560 is probably one of the best--if not the best--computers currently on the market. Or, at least, it should be. From my experiences with it, I'm not so convinced. The GOOD: Hardware-wise, this computer is phenomenal. Build quality is exceptional all around. The aluminum and carbon fiber work very well together, creating a laptop that not only looks and feels good, but is incredibly strong. The 4K infinity display on the model I got is amazingly vivid and sharp, and is one of the best screens I've ever looked at. Most programs scale correctly with this resolution, though I sometimes experience windows that are either way to small or are very pixelated. For the most part, though, the screen is great. For everyday users, I'm not sure it is worth the extra cash, but for users that need that resolution or color accuracy, there's nothing out there that can match this package. The BAD: Out of the box, this laptop was extremely buggy. After a load of updates, it is only marginally better. I still experience, quite often, audio dropouts, display driver issues (I'll explain later), and other small issues that are likely a result of poor optimization for this hardware by Dell. Possibly the most annoying of these issues is the display driver issues. In everyday use, there's no sign of anything being wrong. However, when I open Adobe Photoshop and try to edit an image, it says that my monitor profile "" appears to be defective, and it will not allow me to edit an image without disabling the color profile, which skews the colors. This is extremely disappointing, especially since there is no real fix for it. I found a workaround that works for one session at a time, but after any power cycle I need to redo it. Another issue I have with the computer is the audio. Not only the audio drivers that occasionally decide to drop out, but also the speakers themselves. They are straight up BAD. One of my speakers suffers from distortion at almost any volume level above 10 (out of 100!), which further decreases the sound quality. I would love to try to get it fixed, but there's no way to get this fixed without sending it back to Dell, which would be a huge hassle. The speakers are already so bad that I use external ones most of the time anyways. The SUMMARY: To conclude, I would have to say that the XPS 15 really should be one of the best laptops on the market, but it isn't. Maybe if Dell would actually provide customers with a bug-free experience. Fortunately, I am reasonably tech-savvy, so I have been able to diagnose and solve most of my problems with this computer so far. If you're not good at that kind of thing, I would actually suggest that you pass on this computer, even though you really should be buying it. It pains me not to be able to recommend this, but I really can't because of my terrible experience with it so far.

    Great Laptop, near perfect linux campatibility

    I picked this laptop up via another retailer since they were running a black friday deal that got me 32GB of ram and a 1TB SSD for about the price of this config with 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD.... but as the other components are the same: * Display - 10+/10 -- The display on this thing is quite simply gorgeous. The only "flaw", if you can call it that, is that powering all those pixels means you get less battery life than you would with the 1080p version. * Trackpad - 9/10 -- The trackpads on Apple laptops are better... but this is the best trackpad I've used on a windows laptop. * Keyboard - 7/10 -- The keyboard is good... but I've typed on better ones, and this is a premium price point. That said, I don't have any trouble typing, and it doesn't feel bad, it just doesn't feel great. * Performance - 10/10 -- Hard to not get top marks for an i7-7700HQ in a productivity minded laptop. The thing is quite snappy... no complaints. * Gaming - 7/10 -- This isn't a gaming laptop, and my primary use of it is to leave the machine in linux with the nVidia card turned off, but it's capable of playing casual stuff at 1080p. This is obviously scored on a curve, because if you're a hardcore gamer you're not even looking at this machine. * Build Quality - 10/10 -- This thing is absolutely gorgeous, and sleek, and feels great to hold. Its also built of aluminum and carbon fiber, and is rock solid. * Battery - 8/10 -- also graded on a curve. I am seeing about 5-6 hours of battery when using the laptop for web/writing code. This is not "great", but it's also above average when compared to machines in this class. I mean sure, an Atom netbook with a dim 720p screen can last for 10 hours with a much smaller battery, but that machine is also (to state the obvious) just not nearly as powerful. Value: 7/10 -- this is a premium build machine, and you are paying a hefty price for that. You can get similar specs for MUCH less in the Inspiron 5000 gaming and 7000 gaming lines. Those machines are very capable in terms of "function", but they also skimp a bit on the "form". My son has an Inspiron 5000 gaming laptop that he loves, but it's much bulkier and more plasticy, and generally not as solid -- and it certainly doesn't look as sleek and professional. That said, compared to a 15" Macbook Pro, or an i7 Pixelbook, the value comparisons fare much better. * Issues: none. I have not had any of the issues that I've often seen reported with this laptop. I also have not run much in Windows, so that may be why, but at least for my one laptop, it seems Dell got it put together right. Notes: I got this machine to be my linux workstation, and for that it is delivering and then some. Basically everything just worked out of the box, and a simple howto on turning off the nvidia card (since I don't need it in linux) got me set, although I could have gone for setting up the nvidia driver and either bumblebee or prime setup to switch it on and off as desired. Everything, including the function buttons just worked in xubuntu. One of the smoothest laptop setups I've ever done. (This is also somewhat expected since Dell sells basically this same machine branded as a Precision workstation with linux pre-loaded). The only thing not working in linux is the fingerprint reader... which would be a nice touch (HA!), but hardly something I'm hung up over. I've been using this for about a week doing software development on it, and this laptop has been a joy to use. The screen is just a feast of candy for the eye. It's gorgeous to look at, and after setting up the hiDPI settings, text is just silky.

    Shoddy quality and dismal customer service

    Posted
    William

    I gave it one star because negative ratings are sadly not possible. After being a loyal Dell user for over 20 years, both at home and in my different businesses, I regret that Dell may have finally lost my business after spectacularly failing to live up to the "high-end" product and "premium" service they sold me. This may have been the last money I ever spend on a Dell product. Six months ago I bought an XPS 15 for my son's use at school. At the time I also paid for Dell's "premium-next day" technical support. For starters, the "high-end" XPS I bought 6 months ago has required repeated service and part replacements and seems to be a lemon. In the 1st month alone technicians had to replace first the motherboard and then the sound card module. Now, after only 6 months, the laptop won't turn on and requires two more part replacements, including yet another motherboard. After 3 days talking to Dell support by phone, I learned that a technician cannot be here until the first week of january, 3 weeks from when I first called them, EVEN THOUGH I PAID FOR "PREMIUM NEXT-DAY" ON-SITE TECHNICAL SUPPORT. Apparently, for Dell, "next day" means "three weeks from today". Leaving my son stranded without a computer at school for 3 weeks is simply not an option (which is why I bought "next-day premium support" to begin with). It has now been almost a full week since I first called and I have spent over 3 hours on the phone with customer support, and still no resolution is in sight. Since Dell is apparently unwilling or unable to fix this laptop anytime soon, my reward for being a loyal Dell customer is that I had to urgently get another computer for my son, while the "high-end" incredibly unreliable XPS sits dead at home like a $2,000 paper weight, waiting for Dell to get their act together. Do yourself a favor and stay well away from Dell products or their alleged "premium" technical support.

    Great laptop for a great price!

    Long story short, the Dell XPS 15 9560 is a beast of a machine! Pros: - Thin bezels, makes the footprint of the laptop considerably smaller - Port selection is good (2 usb 3.0 type a ports, audio headphone/microphone combo jack, HDMI 1.4 out, sd card reader and a thunderbolt 3 port) - Dazzling 4k display with 100% Adobe RGB color space - Upgradeable ram (2 slots up to 32gb ddr4) and m.2 ssd - Fingerprint scanner (quick and easy way to login via Windows hello) - Latest i7 processor (brings a marginal increase in performance over the previous 6th generation i7 along with better power management which equals longer battery life, I usually get a little over 7 hours of use before needing to plug in) - GTX 1050 (allows for gaming with playable frame rates for demanding games and great frame rates for most games) Cons: - Thunderbolt 3 port when connected to either my 4k monitor or 4k tv both shows signs of lag even though I have set both displays to be 60hz in the Intel HD options (the lag is most noticeable on the external 4k displays when playing 4k 60fps content from YouTube) - not sure if it has to do with the fact that it only has 2 lanes vs 4 - HDMI port is not 2.0 (basically means it can't output 4k at 60fps unless you use the thunderbolt 3 port which is buggy) - Last but not least, the darn placement of the webcam (be prepared for a lot of up the nostrils and chin cam angles Only real issue so far that I have encountered with this machine is the Wi-Fi dropping every few minutes but I updated the drivers from Dell's website and have yet to see the Wi-Fi drop since. Would definitely recommend this laptop to anyone who needs a portable quad-core CPU laptop that has great battery life and can do some light to medium gaming!

    Excellent, versatile, powerful PC laptop

    I purchased the unit despite reservations considering the number of negative reviews I found. The machine was perfect to replace my older MacBook Pro, if it worked. I went ahead and gave it a try based on: Best Buy return policy, my own PC technical experience, and having a professional IT staff to turn to during evaluation. Upon receiving the machine I first performed a physical inspection finding no issues. Excellent build quality. Then powering up machine I checked for light bleed from screen, no issue. However I did note color uniformity issues in testing that are not noted in normal use. I then ran all MS updates, updated Dell utilities, then used said utilities to update Drivers and firmware. After that I manually updated any drivers the utility missed (or perhaps had not been approved by Dell yet) such as nVidia drivers. Then performed hours of stress tests that maxed out device performance to heat it up and try to make it break. No issues, everything operated as expected, in fact better than expected. After initial checks above I began loading all my SW and Apps. Performance has been uniformly excellent so far. The 4K screen is indeed gorgeous and the machine runs 4K video files without a hitch. It'll knock your socks off (if you're not wearing socks you're likely to lose a toenail or two). The short version based on my experience is to buy with awareness of what issues to evaluate for so you can check for them promptly. Buy from a vendor with a friendly return policy. Based on my machines performance I would say highly recommended. Hope this helps some of you eyeing this machine.

    Fast and Awesome Screen

    I chose the quad core version with 16GB of ram and a 512GB solid state hard drive primarily for the value over the “new” Dell XPS 15, which is even faster with 6 cores and newer technology. This is a great laptop and very fast. A serious gamer might consider the “new” XPS with the faster chip and video card. The quality is obvious. Despite some negative reviews out there, I have had no technical problems with mine. The 4K screen is stunning. I am not bothered that the new model has a similar screen but with an anti reflective coating. You will love this screen. I did buy and adapter plug for direct Ethernet connection to up load and download big files and for streaming. Best Buy delivered to my local store before the promised date. Overall a first class laptop.

    I just returned this laptop due to the mic being broken. I did everything I could software wise to fix the issue then when i was done got in touch with dell and troubleshoot for 2 hours nothing, dropped off at geeksquad and they couldn't make the mic work either so I returned and ordered a second one. I'll be reviewing the new one once it arrives. Guys whitjinf your return period test everything, make sure every port works as intended, the screen etc. It's an awesome laptop, fast and a good value but there's definitely some quality control issues with dell that need to be addressed. I will give it a second chance and see how it goes. In the mean time, it will be 12 more days without a laptop until the new one arrives. Smh...

      @Amedina, We're sorry to hear that the microphone on your recent laptop purchase wasn't working the way that it should. We're glad that you were able to get in touch with our Dell support team and hopefully the microphone on your second device will work as it is supposed to. It is unfortunate to hear that you needed to spend some additional time without your laptop but thank you for your patience. Dell

    Good computer; open-box packaging risky

    I purchased this laptop in open-box, excellent condition, and it was shipped to my home. The laptop was shipped loose in just its original outer box, with the original inner, padded box removed and no outer boxes, bubble wrap, or anything protecting the laptop from being harmed or dinged during transit. It was left rattling loose in a large box with just a thin layer of cardboard (not typical brown corrugated cardboard thickness, but fine black-faced corrugated cardboard) holding it. I returned the laptop without opening the box, since it may have been harmed during shipping. I am familiar with the model, and it performs well, has an excellent screen, and is the best consumer computer I am aware of for productivity and computationally intensive non-gaming tasks.
