    nice laptop but a few issues

    Posted

    I bought this after reading the prior great reviews and looking at the laptop on display at best buy store. its a beautiful, sturdy design. nice keyboard where the backlight actually has good visibility. great sound (with headphones). however, I have 3 complaints: 1. the power button is located on the front right side. exactly where you would naturally grab a laptop to pick it up/ move it, etc. so I kept shutting it off every time id reposition it on the desk. worst placement for power button I have ever seen. 2. when doing anything even mildy graphic intensive, the fans come on rather loud and then begin to cycle between high and extra high speeds almost rhythmically. sounds like you are in a wind storm fast-slow-fast-slow-fast-slow. very loud and annoying with the speed shifting every 1 second. 3. using the HDMI output for HD monitor intermittently cuts out for a second or 2 when using graphics intensive things. I was playing a 2D browser based game and the external monitor would go black and lose sound every couple minutes, then pop right back on. the main laptop screen is ok, doesn't flicker. just the external HDMI line. bottom line. I'm not happy. my HP envy from 2 years ago did a better job with the video than this does. computer passes all diagnostic tests. so I assume design flaws? returning it 24 hours later for something better

    Some problems...

    Posted

    This computer is lightning fast for its class, however I have had nothing but issues with anything multimedia-related. The sound drivers don't appear to be compatible with Windows 10 (volume turns itself down and mutes itself), and there is an issue with anything graphics-related. When playing games, watching videos, or using audio software, the screen goes black yet remains backlit while the computer continues to run. Tech support has not been able to help me fix the problem, everything is up to date, the computer has even gone through a factory reset (made the issue worse). It's currently on its way to Dell for a motherboard replacement, although that is not the guaranteed problem, but so many issues for such a new computer has not made me very happy with this product. A quick Google search returns a lot of people struggling with the same issue, and there's never a solution for it, so I'm hoping Dell can fix it for me. Also, I'm not a big fan of the touchpad, as it requires a two-finger scroll to scroll up and down pages, and there is no option to change it to one-finger scroll. This gets very confusing when going back and forth between this and my HP laptop, or any other laptop I've ever had (never had the option of two-finger scroll). Other than this, the computer really is fast, and isn't super loud... it's sleek and attractive, and I love the keyboard. It only has two USB ports, which can be an issue if you're needing to plug in a lot of extras or an external mouse and keyboard. But when the graphics actually run without going to a black screen, they are crisp and smooth.

    $900 Nightmare

    GrandSlam

    This was the single most expensive and disappointing tech blunder I've ever made. To be fair I didn't read the reviews before purchasing. I've had this laptop for 5 months and it's in worse shape than my 6 yo HP. 1) From day one the most basic processes caused the machine to freeze up. CPU usage would jump to 100% for no discernible reason on a hourly basis. Open the start menu? 5 minute wait as everything freezes. 2) The speakers randomly die. Sometimes rebooting helps other times I simply have to wait for them to turn back on which can be a matter of hours. I read on the Dell review page for this laptop that multiple people have reported this problem. No wonder it has been discontinued in less than a year. 3) The cursor sticks. By this I mean that a single tap to say; select a different open tab causes the tab to become stuck to the cursor. Scrolling the page highlights the page without the need for pressing anything at all. This happens regardless of the program I'm in or the browser I'm using. Interestingly enough the touchpad itself is not very responsive. 4) Blue screen of death 3 times now. On a 5 month old laptop. Enough said. 5) I should mention that the laptop will begin a dell or windows update, install the update, send an error message saying the updates did not install properly and then uninstall and reinstall the updates. I have to let it run its course while the fans get louder and louder and the machine gets close to over heating. 6) Who puts the power button on the left hand side of the machine at the front? You can't pick it up without turning it off. An absolutely absurd design. I've defragged, uninstalled and reinstalled, backed up, crawled through error logs, read countless message boards, ran scan after scan and nothing has been found that could fix the problems that continue to mount. So please, save yourself. Every problem I've had has been described in detail by other reviewers on this site and dell's site regarding this laptop. This is a lemon of a laptop.

    Not as good as the specs indicate

    I am a long-time Dell user, and they provide a lot of great products. This one would likely be better with different specifications, and the let-down with the model is probably partly my own fault. The screen is decent or slightly better, but I found that the touch screen was not as accurate as other models I use (13" and 15.6"); since I bought the laptop because of the touch capability, that is a bit frustrating. My model had a few dead pixels, but since I use it regularly, I could not take the time to send it back. The part that is worst, and my own fault, is the hard drive, and its impact on performance. The startup sequence is overly long, in my opinion. Despite un-installing a bunch of pre-loaded programs and apps, and removing all extra programs from the start up sequence, it still takes more than 5 minutes to startup. I have attempted to have Dell work with me over the phone, and nothing they can do has sped this up. It seems the main fault is the slow hard drive. When I purchased this, in January 2017, there were no models available yet with SSD or better drives. I am sure, based on my other laptops, that that upgrade would help solve SOME of the issues. Other than that, though, the computer just runs slower, and the fans turn on much more often than I am used to. It is an adequate laptop overall, and I still like that it is multi-mode; I just tend to use it for presentation now instead of production of any sort. Even Microsoft p[rograms take longer to load and save than I am comfortable with.

    I spent lot of time shopping for a new computer. This Dell 17 7000 was my first choice, but after reading a lot of negative comments I found myself doubting. However, I realized that most negative comments were about size, weight and other elements now I find to be either false or irrelevant. After one month of heavy use I don't regret my purchase at all. I replaced the 1TB HD with a 1.5TB SSD and added a 1TB M.2 SSD for boot and programs. Start-up with original HHD was relatively slow. This laptop is now very quiet (fan starts rarely), very fast and getting over 8hr battery time of actual work (mix of Word, Excel, PPT, email, browsing). The 17" screen is great; because I use it a lot for presentations, I wanted the largest screen possible. No problem processing videos or doing heavy work with graphic design. The weight is less than what I'm used to. I can have the laptop on my lap on a long flight and it doesn't get hot. What I find missing: VGA port, additional USB3 (has USB2, USB3 and UBS-c), swappable battery. A DVD reader would be nice but not essential. I got a USB-c to USB3-VGA-Ethernet adapter to compensate somewhat. All around, a great computer.

    Computer didn't work upon arrival

    Bought the computer on Black Friday for a Christmas gift, but live in Guatemala, so waited for a friend to bring it down at the beginning of the year. Didn't buy the warranty package because we don't have a Best Buy near us and thought, "It's a new computer! Why would we need it?" However, upon receiving the computer it didn't work from day 1. The battery won't charge beyond 52% and there are random black boxes that appear on screen while using the computer. Called Best Buy, told we needed to talk with Dell. Talked with Dell, told we needed to talk with Best Buy. Tried again, then Dell told us that we needed to step through lots of different procedures before they could accept it as a return to fix it. Skip ahead...had a friend take it back from Guatemala to the US and take it to Best Buy. He was then told that it needed to go to Dell. Call Dell and they say it needs to go to Best Buy. ARGH! Try again with Dell to then be told that we'll need to go through all of the processes with them AGAIN in order for them to accept the computer. Our friend that graciously took it to the US for us is now in the position of having to be on tech support for a long time. Won't be buying another Dell and will think twice about buying a computer from Best Buy again. I did get good service from Geek Squad, which might be their saving grace, but seriously, we're stuck between the pointing fingers and no one is willing to fix a broken computer that hasn't worked from the beginning. To make matters worse, because of the timing of all of this, we'll most likely need to pay to have it fixed. They started counting from Black Friday!

    Power Button Alert!

    • My Best Buy® Member

    I love many things about this laptop, the backlit keyboard, the numerical keypad, the big screen size, the super quick start up time. However, the power button is in the most horrible spot ever! It is right where you would naturally grab your laptop to pull it towards you or reposition it. I was super annoyed with it to start and accidently would turn it off several times each time I used it. I am getting used to it, only bumping it occasionally. Anytime someone else uses my laptop that is the first thing they say and it always happens to them within minutes. Otherwise, love everything about this. Oh also, I didn't pay close enough attention that it does not have a DVD but not a huge deal unless you have software to download (I just borrowed an external one). Note: I did pay the extra $$ to upgrade this to an SD drive and don't regret it! That may be one of the reasons why I have not had the fan issues that others have.

    I'm not a computer geek nor snob. My interests are simple whether there is a fruit emblem or lettering as the company logo: longevity and graphics. I game, not fanatically, but enough that I don't want glitching, stalling or lo-res. This computer runs an Nvidia card; not their top-of-the-line but more than enough to handle almost anything on the market at this point at half the price of a dedicated gaming computer. Beyond that it has seventh generation I-core i7 processing. No chip on the market is newer more powerful or faster, leading to some of the strongest longevity out there. I expect five years of keeping up with the Internet Joneses for both graphics processing and sheer power. Divided out that's about $200 a year or $17 a month, very reasonable given the capability of this machine. Beyond that it is very simple to use, quite slick. And, pound for pound, faster than any MacBook available today. So I understand the cachet and snobbery of Apple appeal, but in the end this unit just draws first blood. Beyond that when you look at the sheer capability of the machine given it's 1 TB hard drive and 16 gig of internal memory, it is easy to understand that the processor when paired with its memory processing capability can't be touched at any price. And for further consideration, the touchscreen and the flipability of the screen enhance its ease-of-use and overall family versatility. Highly recommended.

    good laptop for multimedia

    I bought this laptop for my wife who loves to stream videos and movies on it along with some take home office work. During the setup process with Windows, it took several hours to update itself. It then rebooted and seemed to work fine albeit slow. The hard drive on this laptop is abismal compared to others I have worked on. Knowing that my wife is somewhat impatient, I chose to add a Samsung M.2 500gig 850 EVO SSD to the laptop. This made all the difference in the world!!! It literelly changed this laptop from a " What a looser laptop" to a "Thank you Honey for getting me this fantastic computer!" Yes, I am the man.... so if you are contemplating purchasing this laptop, I cannot stress it any more firmly than to get an SSD to make it perform correctly. The laptop already has the M.2 slot on the motherboard and the screw and spacer for mounting it. It is very easy to install and transfer your data to it. I did strugle a bit with getting the computer to boot from the SSD but after about an hour I was finally able to figure it out. (Just had to find the right video on YT) I left the old hard drive in for extra storage. I simply reformatted the data partirion and left the hidden restoration partition alone incase I should ever happen to need it.

    I bought this laptop as a replacement for my four-year old laptop. So far, it has served my needs wonderfully. Pros: Although the hinge is quite tight, thus requiring some force to open the laptop screen, the screen can be rotated 360 degrees, allowing you to transform it into a tablet or stand it up. Once the screen is rotated beyond 180 degrees, the keyboard and touchpad disable automatically, so any inadvertent presses on them once you enable Tablet Mode in Windows 10 are avoided. The volume button on the side, next to the power button, allows the volume to be adjusted quickly. The IR Camera built into this laptop allows Windows Hello to be enabled, allowing me to use facial recognition to log into the computer (with the backup PIN enabled). The touchscreen supports 10 touch points, and the touchpad supports scrolling and zoom gestures. Cons: The laptop does not come with an optical disk drive, which means that I had to attach an external DVD drive to install some software applications (although Microsoft Office can be downloaded and installed online). The laptop only has a built-in HDD, which means that its startup time (OS startup and app startup) is longer, as it is only 5400 RPM, not 7200 RPM or SSD. However, it has a capacity of 1 TB.

    Size, HD screen was a factor.

    I wanted a laptop to replace my 7 yr. old desktop that died on me. I wanted something that could be portable if needed, but still be powerful. I waited until the price dropped below $1,000 and went for this one. It is worth nothing that this laptop does not have an internal DVD drive. When I made the purchase online, I got an LG external DVD drive for half the regular price from Best Buy. Also note that there is no place to directly insert an Ethernet cable. You will have to buy an USB-to-Ethernet adaptor. The 17in. touchscreen will seem a little big, especially if you have been using an iPad for awhile. I wanted a big screen because I knew this was going to be more of a replacement for a desktop than a high-end tablet, so the HD screen for me needed to be very clear and colorful. If the screen is big, then the rest of the body will seem huge. The full keyboard is easy to use and the keypad to the right of the keyboard comes in handy. There is enough space between the keypad and bottom edge of the laptop to place my wireless mouse, my preference over the touchpad the laptop comes with. The internal battery will last about 3 hours on the first charge and 4 hours after. The AC adapter will get very warm.

    This would have been the second one of this model for us but unfortunately its got some issues. Different batch from the one we bought first so I'm guessing they changed hard drive manufacturers or something. It was constantly using 100% Disk Usage. Now there is an error in windows 10 that can cause this but I went through all the trouble shooting steps for it and none fixed it. So I figured ok maybe something wrong with this unit. Exchanged it for a new one. By the way Best Buy you need better coverage at the customer service desk. Got the new one home and it had the same issue. Tried to use Dells trouble shooting service to see if anything could be done by them. They tried for a couple hours and couldn't get any results. They wanted me to wait for them to ship replacement parts to me to switch out but I wasn't about to do that when it was a gift for someone. "Sorry this was broken out of the box but Dell wanted me to wait on new parts to come. So maybe we can use it next week sometime." Sorry Dell but that doesn't work for me. Now I will say by time I got a higher up Dell rep he was more understanding of that part. Hopefully they figure it out its a decent laptop when working correctly.

    I purchased this laptop online and picked it up in Boulder after looking at it and having a less than satisfying experience at the Longmont store. I also bought the Bamboo Ink Stylus at the same time. I asked NUMEROUS times during the "looking at" in Longmont and the "pick-up process" in Boulder if the Bamboo Ink Stylus was the correct one for the laptop I purchased and every single time the response was "YES, the Computer has Microsoft Ink on it so it will work". Guess what, it doesn't. After 3+ hours of troubleshooting, loading and unloading drivers, I call Wacom, the stylus manufacturer who told me there are only 2 Dell laptops that the stylus is compatible with and mine is not one of them. I am disappointed that the "Experts" at Best Buy, including the one I spoke to in the Longmont store were not aware of this or just didn't care enough to double check. I would have purchased a different laptop that had an Active display versus Capacitive display had I known this.

    (After a month of use) Pros: Gorgeous finish.Very sleek and surprisingly light for a large laptop. I actually find myself using the touchscreen often because of the 360 bend. The display quality is great, the blacks are actually black and not an off shade of gray blue. Great for multitasking (i.e. chrome, krita, and a game or two plus skype can all be open and run smoothly all at once)Runs chrome smoothly. I can run games like gw2, witcher 3, overwatch, and outlast without a hitch thanks to the graphics card and processor reaching and staying at 56 to 60 fps even after playing for while. Con's: Does not have a DVD tray and only USB port ( but it includes a type C port). After an hour or two of intense use the fans tend to get loud enough to notice. It sounds as if there was a mini lawnmower powering up inside your laptop. To fix that just get a cooling tray so it doesn't have completely blocked vents. Over all as a past inspiron user, this is a good bit of a step up and worth what you pay for. Definitely happy with this laptop.

    I purchased this computer at Christmas time, the computer went south on me after the 30 day store warrenty, I took it back to Best Buy and they replaced it free of charge with no questions asked. I got the new computer home and ever since it works great.. This computer is FAST, Efficient, and very well built. I do alot of video making for youtube and this computer with the graphics card, i7, 12gb ram, makes it a breeze to do 1080p HD video making at any length, the rendering process is super fast and the finished movie comes out perfect! The downside to this laptop is the bulk and weight, for traveling, this computer would not be an easy haul, it's built like a tank, and you know it when lugging it around from place to place! Other then that it's the perfect computer for the money and compared to other computers in the same range of quality, this one is by far the "BEST BUY"!

    So we bought 2 of these - one for me and one for my daughter for Christmas. Mine, the motherboard crashed the first day. Had to be completely replaced. The second one is still having issues. It doesn't run very well. Jury is still out as to whether I am going to take it back or not. My daughter has had no troubles with hers, however, she doesn't run very much on it. I run World of Warcraft on it. For a $700 laptop, it should be able to handle this. I'm questioning whether it really can. I think it may be the cause of my troubles. My OLD laptop was just as much trouble as this new one and it was FREE. As for the specifics on it, I love the touch screen and the size of it is wonderful. I love the spacing of the keys (one of my biggest issues with laptops) and the overall size of the keyboard. It's a lot like a macbook. My daughter loves being able to fold the monitor back and draw on it like a tablet (she's an artist.) Lots of pros to it as long as you don't want to load anything too heavy on it. It obviously can't handle the load.

    Worst. Laptop. Ever. My consulting practice relies on dependable, high-functioning computer equipment, and this laptop is not it! As others have described, the on/off button is in the worst possible location; but that is the least of my complaints. After 6 months, the speakers stopped working (sound would fade away after 10-30 seconds), and the screen started going dark once a day. Geek Squad determined that the hard drive had failed, and they replaced it. One week later, the same problems started all over again. Really? My 7-year-old Toshiba (only capable of running Windows 7) is MUCH more reliable than this machine! I would not recommend the purchase of this model for business purposes or any reason where a reliable, functioning computer is a must. This machine has been a major drain on business productivity (not to mention the stress and headaches of reinstalling files, software, etc. after a hard drive failure). I've had good Dell computers in the past, but this one is a lemon.

    Dead after 45 Days

    Purchased the laptop from BestBuy NY on March 3, It broke for no reason on April 17 I was in the UK at that time working remotely, the warranty does not work internationally. Dell's Customer Service team is not very knowledgeable. I requested the transfer of ownership to the UK, which normally takes up to 10 business days. I never received it. I flew back to NY on May 23. Shipped my laptop to Dell on May 25 and they received it on May 31. Today I received an e-mail that there are parts needed for the repair and they will be received on June 14. I purchased the laptop for work and yet I have used it for only 45 days. A brand new laptop with a big name like Dell and all I get in return is that sorry for the inconvenience and the delay. I invested so much money on a brand name whereas I can pay less money and get better specifications from Lenovo. But I chose to go for a more trustworthy brand name. Bravo Dell! Never again!

    My previous laptop was old and quickly dying. I needed something quick. I found this in the store and purchased it. After bringing it home and setting it up, I realized quickly it needed a ssd. The hard drive that comes with it is just too slow to do anything with. I promptly upgraded to an m.2 ssd from Crucial and it's running much better. I then reformatted the drive that came with the computer and using it for extra storage. The RAM is quick and I love having a touch screen laptop in this size. I use it with Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, and Premiere Pro. It seems to handle those just fine. I don't do any PC gaming as all my games are for my Xbox One. Streaming games from the Xbox One to this looks excellent. I wish there were more USB 3.0 ports built in, but that's what USB hubs are for, right? I'm loving this laptop and will probably add onto the RAM once they come down a little in price.
