This review is from: Dell Inspiron i660s-2308BK Desktop (2.7GHz Intel Pentium G630 Processor, 4GB DDR3, 500GB HDD, Windows 7 Home Premium) Black [Discontinued By Manufacturer] (Personal Computers)
Purchased this to replace my 12 year old Dell pc that finally went out. I shopped prices and features before buying this and found it to be a very good value. Set up out of the box was extremely easy, the quick start sheet included with it was very helpful. It is very fast and also very quiet, unlike my old Dell 2350 which was noisy. I have a wifi router and it established internet connection quickly. Only reason I didnt give it 5 stars was 1) the included instruction book is not helpful at all, and 2) the button that opens the cd/dvd tray was hard to find. That button is at the bottom of the two doors on the front of the tower and is very small. Over all I am very pleased and would recommend this to any one needing a fast pc at a very good price. Also Dell has packed it with loads of programs I am still exploring.

Hi Texman. I'm in Longview. I'm thinking about using this as a Home Theater PC to steam 1080i HD content to our TV. This PC shows 2 HDMI ports on the back, but there is nothing in the description that says what the capabilities of this PC's video are. Could you give me some info on that?

First I have an Inspiron 660s fast track 0202 with Intel Pentium processor G630 2.60 GHZ which has Integrated Intel HD graphics. There is ONLY one (1) HDMI port on the back as listed in my quick start guide and which I verified by looking at the pc. I am unable to tell if it does stream 1080i as I have it hooked to a monitor with standard VGA cable. Hope this helps.

Last one: What's the Windows Experience Index on this, and can you tell me what the weak link in the Index is?

What's the Windows Experience Index on this, and can you tell me what the weak link in the Index is? Sorry but that is so over my head I wouldnt dare try to answer.

LOL - Right-Click on your Computer icon (either on the desktop or find it from the Start menu), then go to Properties. The Windows Experience Index should be a number determined the LOWEST subscore of all the test that Windows 7 does on a PC to determine how good it is. (By comparison, my old DELL Latitude 630 shows a 3.1) If you click the Windows Experience Index text, it will expand to show you what component is the weak link (my D630 is from poor Gaming graphics).

Well you taught me something, lowest score is for graphics, desktop performance for windows -- 4.2, hope this helps.

That's much better than what I have now!

Hello, interesting comment on how the media (CD/DVD) drive is opened...you said the button is very small, etc. Here w/ my PC, I seldom use the button on the tower. What I do is this: right-click on the media drive icon I situated on the desktop, click eject, and it opens. Does it also work that way on Win7 (and 8 for that matter)? You might find it easier to go this route if pressing the button is a bit of a chore for you. I see it's black so I imagine it'd be hard to find in my room given the lighting in here.
