Dell :: Beware! Display Quality On SXPS16 Not On Par With Reviews

Feb 11, 2009

However measurements conducted using a professional grade meter severe issues:Yes the colors do pop but green is widly oversaturatedMost colors have incorrect hueYes maximum luminance is very high but black levels are very poor, so the contrast remains below 580:1Color temperature is too high (greyscale suffers from a greenish tint)

Those issues cannot be solved:Calibrating the greyscale to a different color temperature (65K standard) reduces the contrast significantly. Adding some red will fix color temperature but also increase black luminance and hence reduce the contrast.The color saturation and color hue controls do not alter the green color in any significant way.

While the display may be ok for gamers who like nuclearly inaccurate colors, the display is very poor for what it is supposed to do: displaying Bluray films and other video content (after all this is a 16/9 HD media laptop)The poor black levels mean the picture looks flat and 2 dimensionalThe color inaccuracies lead to radiating grass and foliage as well as incorrect skin tones.

I am including the details of my measurements below, as well as examples of ow the color settings of the ATI Catalyst Control panel affect the readings.

Black Level: 0,48cd/m˛
White Point (maximal luminance): 270cd/m˛
Contrast: 560:1

Unfortunately, this is merely average, as most competing non LED panels have contrasts of 600:1 or higher. Also any good screen should have black levels below 0,3cd/m˛ .....

Dell :: **BEWARE** FYI XPS 16 I7

Dec 23, 2009

Bought a Dell XPS 16 i7 with te RGBLED a while back BEFORE reading te numerous postings on this setup.

My first issue was the OVER saturation of reds with the RGBLED monitor.
It WILL look fairly decent when watching a movie but if you're thinking about getting it for photography, you WILL NOT be able to CORRECTLY adjust the saturation levels...and also, the brightness is WAY too bright even at its lowest setting. Be cautious about 'reviewers' who say the extra $$$ is TOTALLY worth it to get this might be ok for gaming and multimedia (alto even during those applications, I found it rather distracting) but I NOT recommend this for professional uses...don't be fooled by 112% gamut. If you feel the need to purchase this laptop, stick with the 15.6 LED...but then that begs the question: Why buy a 16 inch laptop that as a 15.6 monitor??

Secondly, Ive begun find reports that the 90w power adapter is inadequate to power the laptop. Forum users have posted benchmarks showing decreased performance using the 90w adapter compared to the battery (lol). I think this may explain why my monitor was flickering every so often while plugged in. Very annoying. Ive read of people calling and calling and calling and calling Dell CS and finally calling getting them to ship out for free the 130w power adapter which seems to fix that problem. (pretty sure you can search here and find info on this)

Thirdly, Ive been researching DDR2 compared to DDR3 and, please, correct me if I'm wrong, but using 2 dimms of DDR3 is rather ineffectual since the i7 core is built to utilize a triple channel setup. So it seems the XPS 16 doesn't really get to sow off ALL its performance.

And lastly, the idea of a subwoofer in a laptop SEEMS like a cool idea, but considering the build quality of the XPS 16, all it really did on mine was VIBRATE the plastic seams...and I couldn't really turn off or lower the bass enough even as a workaround.

I guess since Im writing this, I might as well share about the 9 cell battery...again, seems great to get a larger capacity battery, but I found it annoying to have this BULGE coming out of my laptop bag. And considering I wasnt getting much more than an hours worth of battery with the RGBLED and an i7 cpu, I always had my underpowered 90w adapter with me. Im pretty sure they include the 9 cell b/c it adds some room underneath the laptop for extra ventilation. Im wondering if they've had some warranty returns due to overheating.

Dell :: Beware Of Outlet System Details

Mar 27, 2009

Well returned my E6400 today went quite smoothly. The system was great with the exception of sending it with the wrong display a CCFL not the LED WXGA as in the outlet Details and Order Confirmation.

I been looking in the Outlet several times daily since Tuesday for a suitable placement, Tonight I scored one similar specs as the one I sent back , now I’m thinking ” see persistence and patience pays off”.

Check the specs one more time everything looks good, click checkout and confirm. Soon I browse my email Order confirmed WXGA LED click on the hyperlinked Order Number for a detailed view of components installed ……Lo and behold CCFL !!!!!!!

I immediately contacted Dell and explained the problem and cancelled my order, the agent told me to stay on the phone as she would transfer me to a sales rep who then will make sure I’ll get a LED display on a comparable spec’ed machine. 30 minutes later the sale agent answered and questioned what system listed in the Outlet would I be interested in.

I explained I was told she would work that out for me and find something similar to my past orders but with an actual LED display, she then said all she had was what was listed and further stated that one cannot go by order confirmation of what the system specs were

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y510P HDMI Quality Output - Not Optimal Screen Resolution For Primary Display

Jan 1, 2015

I have a problem with hdmi output to my TV screen.

I have Y510P (i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz,  Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600

& NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M, Win 8.1 64-bit(6.3 build 9600), all with latest drivers )

My TV is Panasonic TH-L32B6. When I connect my laptop to TV it shows me awful picture quality and notification that “this is not optimal screen resolution for the primary display. The optimal res. Is 1280x720”. But with 1280x720 it’s still awful. It works fine just with 1024x768 res. I have no such a problem with my other TV LG 47LS570Y. How can i fix picture quality with higher resolution? I tried another OS like Ubuntu and a couple of hdmi cables…(see attachment)

Dell :: SXPS16, Latter Models Not So Hot?

Sep 29, 2009

I'm wondering if I am the only one, but I had 2 SXPS16, an original and a replacement,

both were shipped with A08 bios, both seemed pretty hot to the touch like everyone talked about (still not unbearable, just a little uncomfortable) but this new one that was shipped with A10 bios seems way more manageable,

so manageable i don't even think about heat anymore, in fact it has been on my lap for the past hour and a half and no more hot than my 3 year old toshiba

Dell :: SXPS16 WLED

Aug 21, 2009

Ok so my screen is faulty. The colors are messed up (Windows folders are green, snow is blue, etc). Dell (India) is being stupid is having trouble verifying my problem.

So I need your help to prove the them (or maybe to me) that I am telling the truth (or am totally crazy).

Here is a link to a picture.

It is my current background on my SXPS16, M1530, and PS3/Samsung HDTV. On both the M1530 and Samsung the rocky part in the bottom right is a definitive blue (with the slightest bit of red). On the my SXPS16 it is a definitive purple. As seen in these screen grabs below (hopefully)...





Now obviously viewing on my SXPS16 and M1530 every picture looks about the same. My question to you is this, on your SXPS16 (WLED 1080p) is the SXPS mountain picture purple-ish or something else and is the M1530 picture bluer? Are the folders in the SXPS folders picture green and faded or something else and are the folders in the M1530 folder picture more manila colored?

It is my understanding that the windows folders are manila colored like real manila folders... I could be wrong and they could naturally have a green tint but that seems unlikely.

Dell :: SXPS16 Right Laptop For Me?

Apr 6, 2009

I have been shopping around on the internet for the last week looking for a new laptop, and I think the SXPS16 may be perfect.

The configuration I am looking at is basically the base config, without the RGBLED display, but with the ATI card.

I used to own an m1330, that I really loved except the screen was a bit small and I always felt like I was going to break the laptop.

Something about the size - although I left it in my backpack and it never broke, I was always nervous about destroying it

Dell :: SXPS16 I5-540m Or I7-820qm?

Feb 11, 2010

With the i5, you can get the RGBLED screen.

With the i7, you get the 15.6" WLED FHD screen.

I need to pull the trigger within days. So which is better? Which will run cooler? Which will have better battery life? Which will be faster?

I do a lot of 3D modeling and Finite Element Analysis. Either will be spec'd with 8GB of RAM and the 256GB SSD.

Which one should I get? The cost difference is marginal. Will I regret not getting the i7? Will I regret not getting the RGBLED screen?

And why does not allow me to build an i7 computer with a Blu-Ray drive (says there is an OS conflict)?

Dell :: Hinge And Warranty (SXPS16)

Apr 10, 2009

my 1640 has a bit of a loose left hinge. I've read that a few others have had this problem as well. It's more of an aesthetic thing than functional, but it's worn on me, and I want to know if it's something I should be concerned about.

So, I set about contacting Dell via email. Turns out, my hardware support warranty has expired. Now, this is interesting, because I ordered it on 3/22/09, and received it 4/2/09. I have 353 days left of next-day business service, and 353 days of Premium XPS Technical Support (if that's what the P stands for on the warranty status).

I can't figure out how to contact this XPS Technical support...and, according to the website, I couldn't unless I ponied up some cash, anyway.

Dell :: SXPS16 Screen Color (WLED)

Aug 19, 2009

I got my Dell SXPS16 (1080p WLED screen) the other day and well I like it but there is something that I do not like, the screens color is WAY off. I have tried messing with the ATI catalyst thing and the control panel color adjustment thing and neither seems to fully fix the problem. I have checked other screens and my old M1530 for accuracy and the SXPS is off.

To give you and example of how the color is messed up the various links on notbookreview have a purple tint and are not the usual blue. The folders (a la my documents, sub folders etc), are quite green and faded as oppose to the normal tan color.

I reduced the gama in control panel but which makes the "purple link" appear a little bit more blue but the folders are still green.

Dell :: SXPS16 Brighter Keyboard Lights?

Mar 9, 2010

I feel like the keyboard on my SXPS13 was MUCH brighter than the keyboard on my SXPS16.

I also had an icon pop up on the RHS of the screen that told me the keyboard light level (it would pop up when changing intensity 'off', '1', and '2').

I don't have an icon pop up on the 16, and the keyboard looks much dimmer overall.
