    Are Dell PCs faulty?

    Just curious if Dell has a track record for faulty computers? I'm thinking about getting one.

    not as far as I know, I have a dell workstation with win2kp and its only crashed maybe five times in a year...which considering how much I use it is damn amazing. Every dell I have ever used worked just fine.

    I'm on a dell optiplex gx100 right now at work. We use them for workstations and havn't failed yet. They use win2kpro and have an uptime of near.. oh .. 4 months? Without a glitch.

    Dell's are excellent computers! Don't get a [pong]Hewlett Packard[/pong] or [pong]compaq[/pong] get a dell or build your own it's much cheaper and fun!

    My experiences with Dells as desktops computers have been fine. They seem to make decent comps.

    Hope this helps!

    Dell computers have a good track record, and if something is wrong they have an even higher record for fixing the problem. By fixing I mean making the situation right.

    But... building your own is cheaper
    The more I deal with people, the more I LOVE my computer.

    If you're looking for consumer PCs, Dell has the best track-record around, at least according to many studies over the past few years regarding the purchase and support of new PCs. I know PC World has been raving about Dell in their annual reviews of PC manufacturers for the last few years, and I have seen other magazines with the same results. Personally, I love Dell and would recommend them to anyone planning on getting a new system. I know the TechieChick has had some problems with Dell support, but, if you look long enough, there will always be people who have experienced problems with any system. Just my 2 cents.
