"Nice at first, but not worth the hassles."0.5 starson by BluegorillaJA
Pros: Big battery, decent sound, sleek look.
Cons: Poor quality LCD- Failed early, Sound issues that forced restart, overheating, flimsy lid/LCD, Only 3 USB, LCD contacted the Palm Rest and scratched the LCD, and the fact that Dell support is off shore.
Summary: I received this Studio 1555 as a system exchange and Dell did give me several upgrades, but given all the issues, I would have rather had my old one. After only 2 months the LCD panel developed a line from top to bottom, it took 3 hours on the phone with dell to convince them that it was a bad panel. They fixed that, but the new panel gets scratched when the lid is closed. There was always a sound issue, first a Motor Boating sound as you closed the lid and the sound would stop which would freeze the system. I would not recommend this for anyone simply because for that kind of money, you can buy a much better quality unit and have peace of mind knowing it is not problematic.
