I remember my first call to Dell Tech Support : (thick indian accent): "Hi thank you for calling Dell, my name is Roger how can I help you?" Me: "How am I supposed to trust you if you're going to start off the call with a blatant and obvious lie?" It's not that Indian Tech-Support workers are bad...but when Dell is paying them the equivalent of $3.35 an hour, they are (and by extension you are) getting exactly $3.35 an hour worth of tech-support. Which is to say NONE. You'd be better off standing on a street corner and shouting your problem at passing cars.

So has there been any public response from Dell on the issues raised in this video? I'm dealing with them on a laptop warranty issue, and after FOUR months of ongoing diagnosis, home visits, unanswered e-mails, and on and on...I can officially say: THEY ARE THE WORST. Seriously, how do they get away with completely unacceptable customer service practices? Probably because they deal in such bulk that a case like mine can be swept under the rug with literally zero consequence.

I bought two dell laptop a few years ago here in ireland, paid out right for the money taken out then they put both my orders on hold as they had to " check with my bank" if my account was real......... What I got was two laptops that were slower than my ibm thinkpad. And the specs they advertised was supposed to be better call them and all I got was brick walls. First and last time I use them.

The female Dell rep must be fired, if not prosecuted. Get it done, I do not think all reps are alike. Because they are not. She must face the consequences of her malicious behavior.

Dell is definitely the worst. Bought my laptop from them and I will never buy from them again. My laptop started having wireless issues about 9 months in. I contacted support to get a replacement under warranty, but it was a never end cycle of useless phone calls and copy-pasted emails. They managed to stall the last 3 months of the warranty and then basically gave me a "too bad, you're warranty is expired now" response. It's a terrible brand with terrible hardware and worse support.

I really like the iBuy setup. I'd really like to try building it, but as my first gaming PC is it better to go with their assembly/warranty/tech-support? I remember they had a low mark-up but just curious if building a PC is as easy and Linus and the crew make it seem? Also really like the Maingear, but what would you upgrade in order to compete with the iBuy performance?
saab92513584 7 napja
I hate how many large companies Dell has somehow convinced into only buying their products. Our younger IT guys at work game and love AMD stuff and when I asked about AMD powered workstations they said “not an option through dell so you’ll never see us buy anything AMD powered here.” They will go the way of intel by completely ignoring the consumer markets and resting on big corporate demand as if it will exist forever.

Dell were appalling. But if they change and offer the best bang for buck hardware wise, I'd still buy.
SportbikerNZ 7 napja
Your Dell criticism was appropriately harsh given how infuriatingly bad they were. I'm glad you didn't water down the verdict as that would have been extremely frustrating to stomach after how terribly the rep behaved. I was throwing my hands up in disbelief and, like you, anger at how terrible their constant financing and warranty harassment was. And that tech support was hopeless.

Also why the hell are you paying for a z390 motherboard and an AIO watercooler for a non overclockable CPU. A noctua air cooler would have been enough. That alone is 300$ or more. AT THE TIME THIS WAS SHOT.

I actively avoid Dell. The pc I grew up with was a dell desktop. I remember wanting to upgrade it when I was obsessed with pc components in high school, but was disappointed with the lack of that ability due to the proprietary components. I also remember calling their tech support and it being GOD AWFUL

The HP power issue also affects HP gaming laptops... It's a garbage performance experience... I have a 9750H that throttles to 0.79GHz immediately you load more than one core.

To be fair to HP, though their throttling issues are unfortunate, they still performed very comparably to CyberpowerPC (and not far off iBuyPower), with an overall difference of a couple of a few percentage points either way depending on the game. Great series - I think next time you might want to 1)try multiple different price points and/or 2)rank them on different use cases

I don't understand how this video series is accurate at all. It is literally impossible to contact ibuypower. I submitted an order with ibuypower based on the results of this video. They asked me to call them to confirm my shipping address. 3 days later, multiple emails, tickets, and 40+ phone calls and I was never able to call a line that wasn't busy. I don't understand how you didn't experience the same problems. Everyone I see on the forums are in the same boat as I am. Had to cancel my order through a form only available on discord. Crazy...

I bought a $2,000 Dell laptop, they lied to me about the processor. Going to device manager I found processor and graphics was not what I paid for. This Dell lasted me for 1 year, started burning at the power port. I had one of the first Sony Vaio Celeron processor and still running like new!

When I was young, the best company was Dell, they had the best computers and customer service, but somewhere around 15 years ago, they became pretty bad. My uncle was an electrical engineer, and he built PCs in his free time, and the only companies he liked that pre-built the computers was Howard Industries (A local company that makes transformers for electrical companies mainly) and Dell. That was almost 20 years ago, though.

I had an HP too and it should have been a toaster cuz it could get hot enough to have the case feel like a stove and the fans were not adequate in size nor control and all the innards were proprietary. They are like the McDonald's of Computers. And IbuyPower and Cyberpower are more Like Chic-fil-a... they just get things right for a bit more.

I would personally go with the Maingear. It performed well enough and the overall experience was the best. If you are that person who cares about an extra few FPS they wouldn't likely be buying pre built system. For a non tech person Maingear is worth the markup.
