New friggin Dells

Heads up if you havent seen them, I just opened a bunch of new systems and set them up on the rack to begin prep work, to my suprise the RIGHT side of the case is the side that opens now

theres no ps2 connectors anymore either Bye-bye KVM switch

So now I have to re-arrange my whole work are for these things, since this is what we build all our systems from.

I was able to reconfigure things so I dont have to move my chair anymore so I can be lazy and get fat all winter but at the cost of 7 keyboards and 7 mice all around me

Re: New friggin Dells

Except for me. They are total crap and I have a client with over 100 defective units sitting in boxes in a room waiting for return authorizations (some may actually go out of warranty before that happens). So far they are approaching a 25% failure rate within the first 10 hours of use. This isn't isolated to a single production run either, as this has been "the norm" for over three years now.

Re: New friggin Dells

That is incredible.

Is it a particular model?

Re: New friggin Dells

Main problems I've seen have to deal with the ones with the small form factor case. Those are CRAP.

Re: New friggin Dells

Man... I've recommended and deployed hundreds of Dell desktops, laptops, and servers over the years. Very few problems. We had a laptop die after about a month, and someone came by with a box the same day we reported the problem. We shipped it later that day, and it was returned FIXED the next day! I have seen a lower failure rate with Dell than any other other brand.

'Nuff said. Not to mention all the DOA stuff You couldn't PAY me to take any of their systems no matter how cheap they are. They have nice monitors, I'll give 'em that but that's probably because they don't build them.

Re: New friggin Dells

my laptop has provided me with years of faithfull service, up until a month ago-ish I didnt have a problem with it. I bought a dell refurb monitor so I could have a FP in my college years, just hoping it would last til I graduated and that still works great. The systems I build serve as secuirty system DVR's and most of the systems work rock solid. So I like the quality but these new systems are so hard to work inside.
