Written on: 10/03/2008

Have owned my Dell Inspiron 2650 since 2002. Has been extremely reliable with no issues, except the OEM Dell battery it came with. Replaced it with a generic battery about 2 years ago that runs amazing. Very durable and well-made laptop overall. Major limitation is the maximum 384MB of RAM that I was able to upgrade it to… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/02/2008

I have had my Inspiron 2650 for nearly five years now. I received it as a graduation gift and have been more than happy with it. I had a bit of trouble two years ago and had to reinstall Window , but the problems I was having were due to a virus- my fault, not the computer's. I would definately recommend to someone needing a basic laptop. I would recommend upgrading the RAM from 256 mb- it made a world of difference for me and was very easy to do… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/05/2006 by wickedwizard (1 review written)

The first laptop I owned, I bought the Dell Inspiron 2650 in Dec of 2002 and am selling it in May of 2006, did not have one problem with it, I am in the military and believe me when I say it has been all over the world. Great laptop I did no upgrades and replaced nothing. Once again this laptop has more miles on it than I can explain and on top of it all it looks brand new still. All in all it just depends on how well you take care of your stuff… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/03/2006 by aekola (1 review written)

I've had this laptop maybe 3 or 4 years. After one year of owning the Inspiron 2650 the power cord got really messed up and twisted on the inside and so the wires were frayed. I wasn't able to find a new cord on Dell's site so I had to buy it from some other website. That lasted me about another year. But then where I inserted the cord I guess got loose. We tried to get it fixed at a local place. That was a bad idea and waste of money. Within a month it was loose again and we had to send it in… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/02/2006 by eaglesight (1 review written)

I've had the Dell Inspiron 2650 laptop computer for about 2 years. It is my third and last Dell. The power cord is having to be replaced for the third time, and I've had to have the motherboard and the CD player replaced, despite no heavy use or abuse. Thankfully they were covered by the three year warranty. The latest cord is not, and Inspiron 2650 didn't even show up in the parts list at Dell. Myself and my daughter have spent hours trying to get assistance from the support service, which… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/02/2006 by wildgurrl (1 review written)

My Dell Inspiron 2650 Laptop was great when I first bought it. However, a year after I had purchased it the plastic at the hinges started to crack, and now the screen won't support itself. Also, I have had to replace the hard drive twice. Beware! Has anyone else had this problem? Dell claims that it isn't responsible for it, and I am talking to the local BBB chapter for representing me and some others if this is a frequent problem… Read Full Review

I have bought a dell inspiron 1525, had it for 6 months and I am having the same problem with the hinges, the right one has cracked and doesnt support the screen, I am worried the left one will go the same way. I was just wondering what happened with yours? Did they fix it? I will be gutted if they won't as it is still new to me!

I am doubtful. They were complete jerks. Their customer service is awful. Try to get them to. Keep a log of when you called, who talked to, and what was said. It is excellent for submitting to the Better Business Bureau. That was my mistake when I had filed a complaint. I did not keep tabs on the number of times that I was on the phone with problems.

Written on: 30/12/2004 by NotforDell (1 review written)

I am thankful that I purchased a 3 year warranty for the Dell Inspiron 2650. I am also thankful that I have lots of extra time to spend on the phone with Dell tech people, and that I have the ability to follow their rather technical installation and repair instructions. I have had the LCD replaced twice, a complete overhaul once, and just replaced the optic scanner. Dell representatives advised that they, too, would be upset with such poor performance. They are certain, however, that if I… Read Full Review

I've had the Dell Inspiron 2650 for two years. For the price, it has been much better than average. Counting the resale value it has cost me about $1.10 per day. It is still going strong and will last a couple of more years. Wish you could add more than the 512 ram… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/09/2002 by Jay. (1 review written)

Had my Dell Inspiron 2650 Laptop for 3 months and it has performed very well. The 16mb graphics card nvidea geforce 2 is good enough for most games today (plays return castle wolfenstien very well). Overall performance is quite good, i chose the dell over the sony viao pcg-fx701 which had a similar spec (+ a few extras like infra red port and tv-out)
Build quality is good but not excellent as the screen does make a creaking sound when you close it. The LCD display is good, but looking at the… Read Full Review

I agree with most of your comments on the laptop, haven't had your problems with the printerports thoo...
<br>
<br>A few points... the angle of the screen... yes that is a limitation of LCD technology, it usually has a recommended wieving angle of about 30 degrees or less, and a maximum angle where it goes completely dark.
<br>
<br>Also ALL DVD players have a region code set at sale and then 5 OR LESS times to change it, though your should have been set to region 2, as you said.

Just leave the region set at region 1. That way you will be able to watch all DVDs and never worry. Imagine the horror of buying a DVD only to be unable to watch it because your drive is set at region 2!
