4.0 out of 5 stars Useful, good, but one thing to watch..., May 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: AC Adapter Power Supply Charger+Cord for Dell 0DF261 la65ns2-00 Latitude D400 D420 D500 D505 D510 D520 D531 D600 D610 D620 D630 X300 (Electronics)
I purchased this when I saw the price was as low as it is - original Dell power supplies cost seven times more than this one, and I've had two of those burn out on me. This one works, and even if it had burned out in six months, it would have been better value than the original Dell piece. The one thing to watch for that this heats up, so don't set it on anything likely to be damaged by a spike of heat. It doesn't become hot enough to set things on fire, but it is something to watch.

The one advantage that I discovered unexpectedly here was that I bought an after-market battery for the Dell laptop (Latitude D620) and the original Dell charger wouldn't recharge the battery (online postings say that Dell claims that is due to a safety issue -- however, the after-market battery was similarly only 15% the price of the original Dell replacement battery, so chances are they don't want to support their competition for parts). The original Dell charger wouldn't recharge the battery, but this power supply will. A definite plus!
