Big Design problem
The computer is good for my needs specs and all in all is a good product.
BUT, there is a big issue with the design, the keyboard is silver and the characters are white with a back lit that make things worst. I can't not even type because I can't see the letters in my keyboard.
I still do not understand how this computer was approved to go to production.
Do not but it, you won't be able to see or type.
love this computer but had to immediately update the Ram as it could not run my embroidery software programs fast enough. Love that the keyboard lights up so you can type in the dark. Sorry I didn’t look close enough at the keyboard as I don’t need the extra numerals area on the side, which has made the laptop just a bit too big. Found that dealing with Dell themselves with queries was a long drawn out nightmare but sorted out finally. Also finding that I have to charge the battery daily as it doesn’t seem to last long enough. Running the free Classic Shell program as I hate Windows 10. Works very well.
DON'T BUY. Laptop is the slowest I have ever seen in my life, even if the configuration are the highest, this doesn't mean it will work any better. Chrome can barely open, pressing on things take forever, internet keeps dropping, laptop keeps heating up. I already asked for a refund. This is one of the worst products I have ever bought in my entire life. DON'T BUY!
Purchased in December 2017 for $1,080.00.
At first the laptop looks good and is light weight as well, but within 3 months of use the internet connectivity drops out every 10mins, or sometimes in 3 mins. This is a bad choice for online working environment . I bought this for my university assignment but never allow me to upload something because of the connections dropping problems . Waste of money and time . Never buy this , this laptop seriously has problem with wifi connections .

Great laptop great price up to 1 Terabite of memory
This dell laptop is a great price and does everything you will ever need in a laptop . With 1 t rb of memory. Extraordinary for a laptop
Easy set up i love the screen size and the picture clarity is superb. Windows 10 is the perfect os giving you every option you will ever need..
I had to purchase norton antivirus separately which i feel should be built in,
Also Very heavy would be my only negatives
I love the card reader slot making it very user friendly when viewing photos, videos etc and the picture quality is vibrant.All in all, A very good price and a breeze to use.. Whether for home, study or work i highly recommend this Dell laptop
I purchased my Dell after loving my previous Dell. When it arrived it had no sound, so Dell arranged a tech to repair, hey were efficient with that. However the laptop performance is absolutely terrible. Slow to turn on, start up, takes literally minutes to open a photo, it's so unbearable I barely use it. The newer models feel cheaply made too compared to my previous one. I won't buy another one that's for sure!

Download sometime is very slow
My Dell Inspiron 15 5000 laptop computer download is very slow (about 70% time is slow) if compare with my 8 years old Dell Vostro desktop computer (about only 10% slow) both use the same internet provider, the other operation is reasonable ok, the help service from Dell's agent is quite good.

A Huge Disappointment
For the 4 years prior to purchasing this laptop (5567), I had been using an Inspiron 17R. Having been so thrilled with this machine (I had previously attempted to replace it with another machine that became a dust gatherer, it didn't compare), I decided on another Dell. Even though the machine was on sale, I still paid significantly more for this than my 17R. What I received was, I'll admit, was rather attractive looking, but that's where my praise runs dry.
The trackpad in enormous - it's larger than my fist. The trackpad buttons are integr...ated into the trackpad surface, and the algorithm that determines whether you are rolling, or clicking, is lacking. I would say 20-25% of my mouse-clicks are not detected (even though I can hear the "click", and while I am rolling around and clicking a lot, my screen is constantly expanding/shrinking/scrolling/rolling in random directions. I quite enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles on my computer, but it's impossible on the 5567. I was also off-put to discover that the trackpad feels dusty, a sensation that no amount of wiping, rubbing, or any other action, could remove. The keyboard, not wanting to be left out, does not always accurately transmit my keystrokes - every so often, perhaps 1 in 5 times, while I am entering and exiting screens to check figures, I'll hit alt+c or alt+s to exit (using the left alt button), and the exit command will be performed, but and additional "alt" press will be transmitted, triggering a call to the file menu. This means that when I press down to move to the next record, I'm actually opening the file menu. I have noticed similar behaviour in excel with the right ctrl button. The numeric keypad is not made up of full sized buttons, they are slightly smaller. As I do a lot of data entry and work with numbers a lot, this is a significant issue for me. While I am pleased that the have added a context menu button, I'm disappointed that there is still no light indicating whether Num Lock is active (again, I work with numbers). Even from day one, the performance of the operating system (W10) has been flaky at best. The laptop has been known to randomly fail to start, or turn off as soon as I log in. The unit does not hold a charge very well, and seems to consume power at a rate higher than it anticipates. I'll check the icon which will tell me I have 37 minutes left, only to have the machine shut down after 15-20. I have spent way more time arguing with Mcafee - software I never wanted - than I care to admit, and control panel crashes a lot when I ask it to do basic things, like adjust the mouse settings, or uninstall unwanted bloatware. If my 17R hadn't finally given up the ghost, this thing would be gathering dust with my other failed replacement, and as it is, I'm thinking of trying something else, this machine is just simply not built to be used with any enjoyment.

impressive quad-core performance. If it is with a ssd its performance is great. COmes with reasonable price and tablet-morphing abilities make it a compelling—and powerful—mid-range ultrabook.
The Dell Inspiron 15 5000 is an affordable 15-inch laptop with solid 8th Gen Core performance, but it's hindered by a horrible display and brief battery life
Just dont buy Dell
I bought an Inspiron 15 5000,,, paid top dollar,,, it had trouble from when I first turned it on...
After 2 weeks it refused to turn on,, 2 weeks later I'm still battling with Dell for warranty.
They admit over the phone they have a problem with this Laptop,, hence no replacement parts are available..
I have spoken to Dell in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, India, Sydney and Melbourne,,, but just get pushed off..
They dont have an answer
Happy with this computer so far...
Just bought one of these and so far I can say that it is a little ripper. My son uses auto cad at work and has loaded it on. Runs beautifully. So far a great unit, love it!. I love the backlit keyboard and also the lack of weight, my old Acer weighed a ton.
Locked down computer with terrible driver support. Cannot get Windows USB drivers to work. Good lick with WiFi.... Intel chip sets are probably to blame locking down the system. Very unhappy with this frustrating piece of crap. Regret having to get a dell. Overall performs poorly. Such a dodgy practice.
I changed twice! First the computer presented a bitlocker bug. Second the Bluetooth doesn't work and also appeared a strange message always when turn it on. I tried to do a lot of things to correct the problems but DELL Inpiron 13 / 5000 series seems to be worst all the time. In short, the computer never worked.
Basic everyday laptop.
Good laptop for your basic everyday use - emails, letter writing, web surfing. Not overly impress with the screen resolution and encountered a major problem with the laptop as it would not turn on one day because I did not have it charged, the battery went flat and I could not boot it up. Considering the fact that I had just recently bought it when this happened I went into panic mode and stayed up till 4 am to try to google fix it successfully. I have always used Dell but I think for its price, there could be better mid-range models out there.

Review for a model 5567
I was looking for a replacement for my six year old ASUS laptop and settled on a Dell. Have never owned one personally but had used them at work and found them to be generally reliable and of a good quality. Dell was running a sale which put it at a distinct price advantage over a similarly specced ASUS.
As well as having 1Tb of drive space it also had a FHD 15.6 screen of 1920 x 1080 which was high on my list of requirements.
Initial impressions were good when unboxing. The unit was delivered in a reasonable time by Dell, was well packaged a...
Very poor performance and issues with charging
This laptop was a bad purchase. Although it does have an adequate amount of internal storage, that is about the only positive I can say for this laptop. The most annoying feature is the charging cable. From the first week the laptop has failed to recognize the cord as a Dell product, and therefore does not charge the battery. This makes the performance terrible, to the point of basically being unusable. I have tried updating the BIOS, bought a new cord and tried all the other suggestions online to no avail. This product should not have been released due the the major issues it clearly has. This will definitely be my last Dell purchase.

It is about 2 yrs I got Dell Inspiron. The first year of the purchase, I had a Keyboard problem and replaced with the refurbished one. Now, again some of the keys stopped functioning. In the second year, I have a battery problem. Now, it is not a laptop but is a desktop. The battery won't even last for a 10 min.
I had a Sony VIO from 2009 to 2016. In terms of money, I paid nearly half the amount of Dell laptop I have. Battery life, it was excellent and even in 2016 before the laptop screen broke, it had a minimum of 1 hr battery backup. Never had any keyboard issues.
