The one I've been waiting for,
This review is from: Dell Inspiron i3847-5078BK Desktop (Windows 7 Home Premium) (Personal Computers)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is my first time owning a brand new desktop that wasn't "used" in some way. I've got to say that I'm impressed!
The included quick start guide is pretty basic, but I was still however able to get everything connected with almost no issues. It might be my lack of experience but this desk top has no VGA port for the HDMI cord.
Since the Asus monitor that I bought had an HDMI cord with a VGA port I had to use a double sided HDMI. Luck would have it that I already had one but if you don't you'll need one. There is also an included wired keyboard ( which is actually pretty nice) and wires mouse ( I use my wireless Longitech instead) so you don't have to buy them if you don't have them.
The size of this desktop was surprising to me. Its pretty big but actually really light. Which makes it nice for anyone who may have heavy lifting issues.
I was easily able to burn cds, and dvds, upload video footage from my GoPro, as well as hook up my wireless printer. The included games were my kids favorites even though there aren't that many. We were easily able to put a few computer games on there via disk.
I uploaded all my wedding pictures (1,000 +) and the music played during the reception (hours and hours) in very little time. It was very easy to install my virus protection and start my free trial of Microsoft Office.
So far this computer has preformed every task with no problem and at a speed that is delightfully quick. There is also an included warranty which offers a little peace of mind.
Overall I'm completely satisfied with this desk tops performance, and would recommend it to anyone in the market.

Where can I sign up to be a Vine reviewer and get a free PC too? Granted, Amazon, you do identify these two reviewers as being Vine customers, but isn't this shilling the product? I want unbiased reviews, by paying customers. Now if I see a highly rated Amazon product, I am going to have to double check for the boosting of the star rating by Vine customer reviewers. Your review system is losing its value to me as a long time Amazon customer.

Amazon Customer says:
You should email amazon directly with your comments or questions. Yes I received this item to review, however I'm not required to give anything a 5,4, or even a 3 star review. I'm always honest and this is honestly an awesome desktop whether I paid for it or not.

It is interesting that you stopped with "or even a 3 star review". How about a 1 or 2 star review? You are already showing a bias by stopping at 3. Sorry, but this is the best place for me to directly make comments on reviews.
Also, where do you find a statement on a 3 year warranty? I read 1 year.

Amazon Customer says:
So your right on the warranty I changed it, the monitor I bought locally is what had the 3 year. Thank you for that. In your first comment it sounds like your attempting to address amazon directly. What I meant by my comment is that I could give any star rating I want and it doesn't need to be 3 or higher. Sorry for any confusion.

that is what a potential buyer is looking for; honesty in review!
