"Performance spoiled by LCD"3.0 starson by Dragon_Myr
Pros: Very fast; great in games; audio is exceptional; graphics top of the line; heat management very good; quiet; good wireless
Cons: sparkles on LCD
Summary: I was very very upset to find a sparkly LCD on my system. It's hard to look at although there is no light leakage and no dead pixels. When doing coding C++ and photoshop the sparkles get on my nerves and bother my eyes. I'm about to return the system for this problem because it's too much money for a poor quality screen that sparkles. Maybe if this system were cheaper it'd help. Performance is top notch especially in games. The weight is light (compared to competitors) and this thing tears apart my desktop! The LED's and build quality get the attention of other people near me and there's a lot of connectivity. I recommend unless you're going to be doing office and graphics work.Updated
According to the Nvidia website they claim I should be getting in excess of 12,000 3dMark03 points. I'm on a fresh install and I'm getting only 11,043 points! On 05 I get 4903 points. That is far lower than what was advertised and reviewed for this system by places like Tom's Hardware. I've come to find out that Dell DOWN-CLOCKED the consumer XPS2! Mine is not clocked at the same speeds review sites have been testing in! I will be on the phone monday (or tuesday if they're off) to complain and demand a return or compensation. This is a rip off. I like this system but I've been lied to and the LCD sparkles cause too much eye strain. It's just not worth it people. Go buy something else. I thought this would be the one, but it doesn't look like it unless they make me happy.
