“I am very happy overall with the Dell Dimension 8200...”

Written on: 04/01/2007 by JulioF (1 review written)

I am very happy overall with the Dell Dimension 8200 computer itself. Delivery was prompt. The internal layout is fine, with drives being held by easy-to-use clamps rather than screws. The bootup time gradually increased, with boots taking typically 3 - 5 minutes, but this is a WinXP issue. I found that the bootup time became much faster after I deleted ALL the files in the /WINDOWS/PREFETCH/ folder, then modified this registry setting:

Written on: 26/05/2003 by walwel. (1 review written)

Dell sent part of the system via a commercial carrier (very good) and sent the rest via United States Post (very, very bad). I complained and complained and Dell didn't give the impression that they gave a rip… Read Full Review

“If you are in need of a small, quiet, fast, pre-made...”

Written on: 11/11/2002 by Grandpa. (1 review written)

If you are in need of a small, quiet, fast, pre-made computer, look no further. This is a very nice machine. It uses only one case fan, which doubles as a cpu cooling fan. I have trouble telling if it's on! I went with the faster RDRAM and upgraded the monitor to the P1130. Terrific in every way. Very satisfied… Read Full Review

Needs an average price for the review to have proper meaning.

8200 Series is in fact the quietest machine I have ever worked with.... the hard drives and the monitor are the only indication that this thing is conscious. If possible I would have designed this device with more conventional memory. If you can afford to, MAX out your memory for best performance....that's a comment for Mr. Bill more than Micheal D. The box accepts additions very nicely and is well designed to do so....fifteen minutes after getting delivery my machine has no space left, 2nd CD, 2nd and 3rd HD, 2nd ethernet, special cam board. Runs like a champ.

“Having built an AMD 1.2 ghz pc my wife and I both...”

Written on: 27/08/2002 by Grandpa. (1 review written)

Having built an AMD 1.2 ghz pc my wife and I both realized we would never be satified with the final results. The AMD processor runs hot. That means you must use "adequate" cooling. In other words lots of noisy fans. To make it worse, the VIA chipset is very unstable. One day she said "Oh F__k it, why don't you just buy a Dell". I happily agreed. Today I am a proud owner of the fastest and quietest PC I have ever owned or seen. I would order another one in a minute. Guess I'm a Dude now :-)… Read Full Review
