I'd say save the bucks and get a better quality one.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: AC Adapter/Power Supply and Cord for Dell Inspiron 1318 1545 1546 1551 pp41l (Personal Computers)
So I purchased this to replace for a Dell laptop I was working on for a family member. It so happens that the one that went out on me was identical to the one I had purchased. Only when I received the new power supply, the wires were a lot thinner and flimsy. Plugged it right in and immediately becomes hot to the touch. Eventually got so hot, I couldn't hold it in my hand w/o burning myself. Its working so far but have a strong feeling this thing isn't going to last very long.
I hate rating it at three starts based on an assumption but the previous AC adapter had bulkier wiring but of course that one eventually went out as well. I'd say save your money and purchase a decent one or better yet buy a Dell brand AC adapter. Even the photo showed an three prong AC cord that connects to the actual adapter but mine was only a flimsy two prong cord.

Did you get it replaced? The product details says 12 months warranty

You know Ira, I haven't heard anything from my family member about it going out so I guess thats a good thing. I'm sure its still getting hot but we haven't had to replace it. If your on a budget and this thing says it has a 12 month warranty, go for it!

I agree and am also upset about receiving a product that is not the same as the one pictured. The photo does show a three prong AC cord and the one I received only has two. That should be against the rules, to provide a picture that is different from the product you're actually selling. I will not buy from them again.
