“1st and last DELL”

Written on: 06/04/2012

Bought Nov 2008. Great to start with but battery has been dead for last 2 years. New ones very expensive so I just use mains. System gets hot and crashes occassionally. Issues starting to creep in with loading. At time of writing I've been trying for over an hour to boot the thing up! Seriously thinking of getting all my stuff off this laptop and putting it onto a Samsung, which my family have… Read Full Review

“The Inspiron 1525 is THE WORST laptop I've ever had...”

Written on: 09/12/2010

The Inspiron 1525 is THE WORST laptop I've ever had the misfortune of being screwed out of my hard earned money for. Nothing by misery from day one - The wireless card was never compatible with Windows apparently and things just went down hill from there. I replaced the keyboard whilst still under warranty but it crashes regularly despite being kept up to date with anti virus and windows updates etc and I've never installed anything untoward on it. To summarise - THE WORST LAPTOP IN THE… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/08/2010

As a teenager I mainly use my laptop for school work and social networking sites and this laptop has been very good in doing all of that. The hardrive did break after a year but Dell replaced it free of charge :) . The computer also has enough memory for the Sims 2 plus 4 expansion packs which is an added bonus. And after 18months of pretty much constant use the battery life is still pretty good. Overall a great laptop for the price… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/08/2010 by nigelashley (4 reviews written)

I got this "Free" with AOL broadband/phone deal. However after about 18 months I unplugged it from the power and it went off. Put it back on charge, for a while, same thing again. Bough new power supply £40 Maplins, same problem. Found problem is power socket centre pin, put 1cm very thin wire inside centre hole, bent over to an L shape, suddenly charging works fine. However original battery is worn out. Bought new battery (not Dell original much cheaper, better capacity ones out there if you… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/04/2010

Had this laptop for 18 mths. Not a sniff of a problem.
Dell allows you to customise which I did, increasing the ram and processor. Programmes load fast. Much better than my previous Toshiba Satellite, which needed to be sent back after 3 months, due to cooling probs.
I'm very pleased with this laptop and would recommend another to anyone… Read Full Review

My 2 year old laptop has just started freezing and it needs a new hard drive which is being replaced tomorrow. I'm wondering if it will be worth it. Maybe i shoul dhave bought a new laptop instead?!

Written on: 01/12/2009 by dannygordon (8 reviews written)

I only ever used this laptop for about one month before my Aunt became the sole user. The get straight in there, the battery life is, well, its absolutely awful, would last say, 1hr fully charged, just browsing the internet and chatting on MSN. However, i must admit, the touch pad and keyboard is fantastic, much better than my Acer. The processor on the Dell is "faster" but my Acer appears alot faster, maybe it utilizes the hardware alot better. For about £400, i think i would with hindsight… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/08/2009

well, i've bought this Dell Inspiron 1525 only 2 days ago, but i had some experience from my sister's dell inspiron 6400 which resembles to a large extent the inspiron 1525...
i think from my experience that 1525 has very strong keypads(better of course than hp) and it has very modern look not found in other dell models. It is quite great and the only thing that can bother is the sound, but just a pair of subs can fix it for sure. I will write here my review after somewhile to get sure whether… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/08/2009

well, the dell inspireon 1525 is a very good laptop, in general. The graphics card is not very good, so I wouldn't recommend this laptop for gamers. But the battery is fairly good and I personally don't think the fan is that loud, So, overall, this laptop is very good for the money you pay. The best part is that it can be customised to meet your specifcations. I recomend this for studying and working… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/06/2009 by panther01 (1 review written)

This laptop is shockingly bad. About a month after purchase we first had problems with it. First it was the CD drive and memory card slot not working. Since then we have had numerous problems with it. It is also very slow, in fact my 8 year old computer (not a Dell!) is faster. Now after the waranty has run out the laptop is barely useable. The battery life is awful. Beware of this laptop, I certainly wouldn't purchase another Dell computer again… Read Full Review
