Yeah, it's an amazing system. I unboxed it Friday night, then after imaging the included 1TB hard drive, I migrated my Intel 80GB SSD over from my existing tower as well as my GeForce 550 Ti video card and XFX 560-watt power supply. Once I got past the learning curve of working with a UEFI boot (instead of BIOS), I installed Windows 7 SP-1 + all the updates. Then I formatted the 1TB hard drive for secondary storage (hint: because it's a GPT disk and not MBR, use DiskPart.exe at the command prompt instead of Disk Management in Windows).

Windows Experience Index now reports 7.7 across the board with the exception of the "Graphics: Desktop performance for Windows Aero" being 7.6. This thing is stupid fast compared to my former Q6600 home-brewed tower.

For kicks, I installed Half-Life 2 on the SSD. The game loads in just a few seconds, everything is set to "Max", and game levels load in less than 3 seconds. OMG
Where did you get all the Windows 7 drivers? Did the ones from the disk work or did you find it off the website? I couldn't find the website myself, but that may just be poor searching on my part.

Using my laptop, I downloaded the driver for the Realtek Ethernet Controller (network card) from:
https://www.dell.com/support/trou...t/xps-8500
and put it on a USB Flash Drive. ( I am using Windows 7, 64-bit.)

From there, I installed the driver on the XPS 8500 and was then able to get online. I went back to:
https://www.dell.com/support/trou...t/xps-8500
and then downloaded and installed the rest of the drivers.

After I thought I installed everything, there was still an unknown network card sitting in Device Manager. So I looked over my Dell order and saw "Module,Card,Network,DW1703,Consumer Notebook,World Wide".

So I downloaded and installed the "Dell Wi-Fi+BT Driver" which says "provides driver for Dell DW1703 BT4.0 + HS Driver and is supported on XPS 8500". All is good now. Big Grin

Thanks and repped! I tried out W8 and it was just too much work to learn, so this really helps.

Meh, I just sent them an email about my R4. I know about some scratches on each side, and it arrived with a lot of dust on the exterior, but when I opened it up the other day I was surprised to find that even one of the interior panels was scratched up pretty good.

FFS. When they said scratch and dent, they sure meant it! Grr.

That, and it had no wifi even though it was supposed to. Haha. Oh well. Do you think they'll try exchanging it? Or fixing it? Or a credit? I'd kinda like to go the fixing route and maybe a credit. Smilie

Hey everyone. Was wondering if I could get some feedback on a certified refurbished I purchased last week for the 30% alienware sale. I got an M17x, 750GB SATA hard drive (7200 RPM), 1920x1080 60hz display, intel 3g i7 3630QM processor, 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1600MHZ, and a Nvidia Geforce GTX 675M graphics card.

Got it for $1,241 including the 30% discount. Good deal? Thanks in advance.

This might be useful to those of you trying to cancel the warranties.

I just received a couple of e-mails from Dell with the terms and conditions about the warranties. Specifically, the in-home repair warranty has a paragraph that states:
You may cancel this Agreement for any reason at any time. Please
contact the Administrator at (877) 293-1197. If You cancel Your
Agreement within thirty (30) days of receipt of Your Agreement,You will
receive a full refund. If You cancel after thirty (30) days of receipt of
Your Agreement,You will receive a pro-rata refund based on the time
expired less a twenty-five dollar ($25) cancellation fee, or ten percent
(10%) of the purchase price (whichever is less), less the cost of claims
paid.
Unfortunately, the premium phone support terms do not state anything about letting the buyer cancel that service. It does talk about when/how Dell can cancel the service, though!

If anyone calls this number and tries to cancel their warranty/warranties, please post back and let us know how it goes.

Hey, what software did you use to image your 1TB hard drive? I'm thinking of using clonezilla...

I'm planning on doing the same as you but I've got a Crucial M4 64GB SSD I'm going to put in there...

The post above by anonymous may explain some of the difficulty we have been having getting these warranties cancelled. Were taking relatively high end systems and buying then for what, $400-$650?I don't know how long that 10% thing has been in there but that wouid mean a minimum of $1200-1400 spent to get the $140ish back that some have gotten. ..ust a thought I had.

I use Acronis True Image. It allows you to create a bootable media CD. That's what I used. I then backed up the factory hard drive to an attached USB external drive.The resulting file was 9.3GB.

Finally got this:

This is in reference to the credit request 165XXXX for your Order Number 3763XXXXX. The credit of $130.31 has been posted to your original mode of payment and will be reflected in the next billing statement basis the billing cycle you have on your account.

Looks like they refunded some tax as well.

Just had a fail with chat. Frown They had the 'its a bundle' line. Checked with manager and quoted the terms of the accidental service contract even.

Will keep trying.

I got a laptop for my dad with this sale. Has a regular 1T hard drive and a 30gb ssd. The OS (win8) is on the regular hd. I want it on the ssd. I tried to use the included windows 8 disk to reinstall the OS on the ssd but it did not work, gave me error when I tired. I downloaded a utility from cnet to transfer the OS but it says that it can not because the regular hard drive is GPT. Any help as to where I can go from here without getting having to buy and OS for a clean install?

its probably because its setup as uefi in the bios. What error did you get? Is the ssd blank with no partitions?

Also that little SSD may not be setup to appear as a drive. It's intended to be used via intel srt raid in combination with the hard drive, to be a speedy cache. kinda like having a diy hybrid drive.

the windows error (without more specific info) may have just been windows looking for the raid driver so it could see the drives. I downloaded mine from intel,but del has them as well. download and put them on a flash drive for use during your install. without accounting for that I wouldn't blame uefi yet.

look in setup and see what mode the drives are in. Raid? There's your problem. Take it off raid and your drives will be exposed. This confused me when I first did it, trying to dig deeper into how srt works.

I can't spend any more time on this, so I called Dell again and after again speaking to "Customer Care" who said that can't do squat, I got the "Returns Dept." who was able to issue a 10% ($50) credit. Tack on another 30-minute phone call to do this.

So, while I couldn't the XPS 8500 down to $351 like others did earlier, $450 delivered instead of $500 is still very good.
