Dell :: Scratched During Manufacturing

Aug 4, 2009

(I've had the laptop for about a week and a half) but there is a scratch (actually looks like a burn/melt) on the top right of the screen, and it's nothing I could have done. It kind of looks like when you peel off a sticker and the glue is still there... I just found it because of the way my lamp is shining off of it and I'm wondering if I should make a big deal about it. Some may call me picky, but when you buy a new laptop, you expect it to be "perfect" and when you find a flaw...

Sony :: Crack On The Bottom, Manufacturing Defect-or Accidental Damage On NEW VGN Z690

Apr 28, 2009


I have had the same issue with 10 days old Z690.

I found a small U-like crack around the bottom near the AC connector and the hinge are intact with the bottom housing.

I did not notice it was there after 10 days of use. Once I found it, I called Sony Customer Service to discuss about it , and I was connected to Tech Support for Repairing this unit. (I decided not to return it for credit since I already returned 4 Z690s for keyboard lifting issue for two, high-pitched noise, cosmetic damage and I got sick and tired of returning the VGN Z690)

here are some pics for the cosmetic damage (it is small but noticeable) and keyboard.


Once the laptop arrived in the repair center, they gave me an estimate of $161.40 for replacement of bottom housing.

I should have sent it back for repair
but I gave the repair center one last chance and tried to save some time on placing new order.
I received the laptop on April 20th.

But high-pitched noise started to cry out for my attention...
which did not existed before the repair.. I sent it for repair on 22th and
it is still being diagnosed....

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Build

Jul 6, 2009

I will be using this mainly for 3D Cad work, presentations and some gaming and I have a few questions before ordering regarding the processor and then the optical drive.

1. Is it worth it to go to the t9550 over the p8700 for the processing power and dealing with increased heat issues and power consuption?

2. I won't do much blu-ray so is it better to stay with the 8x DVD since is faster at reading and writing in general?

3 I ask because of the wonderful dell-hell I'm in. I have to order with one of these upgrades to keep my price up (over 1504)and get the restocking fee back from a previous order. (Processer +$125 and blu-ray +$150) Which one would you choose if you had to?

Config as of now is (cost $1554):
Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T9550
4GB Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1067MHz
FullHD Widescreen 16.0 inch RGBLED LCD
ATI Mobility RADEON™ HD 4670 – 1GB
320GB 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drive
8X DVD+/- RW(DVD/CD read/write)
Intel® 5300 WLAN Wireless-N
Dell Wireless 370 Bluetooth
9-cell Battery .....

Dell :: E6410 Build Quality

May 25, 2010

How's the build quality on E6410 compared to Thinkpad T410? Creaks, flexing, etc? I'm almost sure this month my next purchase won't be a Thinkpad and Latitude seems to be a good choice. Our office use them.

I currently have a 6-year old T41 and 2-year old T61. I'll miss the keyboard and trackpoint but i can live with that.

I have an utrabay HDD adaptor on my T42 does E6410 have the same? I can only see a travel lite module.

Dell :: Does Build Computers On Weekends?

Jul 27, 2009

I was just wondering and this may have already been asked, but does Dell build laptops/desktops on weekends?

I would think with so many orders they get they would have to, but I am not so sure.

I placed an order for an XPS laptop to be built during mid-week last week, and my thought process is that they

will build as much as they can for the customers machine during the weekdays, but will set it aside until the next week comes around and take the weekend off?

Dell :: Better Build Quality: E6500 Or M4400

Sep 16, 2008

I am in the markey for either an E6400 or an M4400. I like the power of the M4400 and the looks but I have heard some stuff about the lid not being as sturdy as it looks.

Is it made of metal as the lid of the E6500 is?

Which is a more durable laptop in yor opinion?

I went from the official Beta 1 build 7000 to build 7022 last night, and so far I am very pleased. Greatest benefit so far has got to be the vastly improved stability of IE8 RC1, as well as overall system stability. Anyone else make the switch?

Dell :: Studio XPS 1645: Build Quality

Dec 4, 2009

I received my Studio XPS 1645 this Monday. My Specs:

-I7 820
-8G Ram
-128g SSD
-RGB Screen

The machine runs beautifully and the screen is amazing but I am having what seems to be an incredible amount of build quality issues. I wanted to know if others have had the same issues and how they resolved them...

-The tech is coming for a second time to fix my screen. It came out of the box with a large scratch. The second screen has several dead pixels.

-Above the keyboard, in front of the screen, the batter (9-cell) doesn't fit flush

-The Sound is uneven. It is FAR louder coming out of the right side than the left. The settings in the control panel seem fine.

Sony :: Build Quality Of VPCCW27FX

Apr 16, 2010

I'm looking to buy a laptop for programming, gaming, and everyday tasks. Right now I'm debating between the VPCCW27FX and a 15" MBP. The price difference is huge (almost $1000 more for roughly the same machine) but there are two things that are making me consider getting the Apple.

1. The ability to do iPhone/iPad programming. Hard to put a price on this. I'm not positive I will have the time to do this but it is nice to have the option.
2. Build quality - everyone raves about how well Apples are made and my general experience observing friends makes me think they are decently made as well.

how well put together their VPCCW27FX is? Have any components needed replacing/how timely was the repair work? Any more general nagging complaints about the machine (wobbly screens, bad keys, loud drives, etc)?

Also, if people have more general thoughts on comparing the 15" MBP vs the VPCCW27FX that would be great. It's pretty amazing the price difference between the two but if the MBP is must better made and will be supported more quickly then that's something I'll have to take into serious consideration.

HP/Compaq :: HP Envy Build Quality

Mar 29, 2010

I received my HP Envy 15 today (I was excited). As I proceeded to open the contents of the box I was impressed with the presentation and packaging of the system. After I got the laptop completely out of the soft-cloth cover case, I sat it down and began to inspect around the system. Looking around the laptop, before opening the screen lid, I start to notice black marks, scratches, and smudges on the case.

Some of these were production dust but some were actually scratches. Next, I open the lid to inspect the screen and noticed more smudges and a few hair-liner scratches on the lower part of the screen. At this point I am like ?!?! Upon further inspection of the screen, I noticed that the rubber screen spacers were peeling off. How did these issues pass the final Q&A check? Lastly, the bottom part of the plastic shell covering the screen was warped, as it was rubber-banding out instead of sitting flush against the screen.

I am disgusted, to say the least, to receive a $2000+ laptop in this condition . Since this is HP's high-end model I expected near perfection. So, after trying the Dell XPS 16 and now the HP Envy, I have to say that I am not impressed with the build quality of either system. I guess Apple or another PC brand will get my money. So long to Dell and HP!

Acer :: 6930 / 6920 Build Quality

Been looking at getting a mid range media / gaming laptop and it seems that Acer with the 6920/6930/6935 range seem to have the best range of affordability and good specs in the laptops.

But I was wondering about build quality, I had a shot with one of them in Carphone Warehouse and it seems very cheap and breakable is this the case or are the good quality built laptops?

Acer :: Aspire 6935 Build Quality

Nov 14, 2008

Are Acer laptops one's that I could rely on for 3-4 years to come?

I've been planning on buying a new laptop this month or at the beginning of December. I was considering Dell's new XPS, when they come out, but so far no luck on that front.

The Acer Aspire 6935 has caught my eye, but it seems dangerously cheap for the specs. (T9400 CPU, 9600GT GPU, Blu Ray, FullHD screen etc - and that for only 1299.- euros).

If users who have the 6935 could post their opinions (I realise that it won't be after a year or so of usage, but still) and maybe some benchmarks, or gaming results?

So all in all - is the quality up for it, is it up for 3-4 years, with out me going to the warranty service every now and then after a year or so?
