Linus is absolutely right, there are customers out there with 5-10 year old systems that still work fine that just need a new GPU. I upgraded from a GTX 680 to a RTX 2070 12-18 months back. Now i JUST upgraded from a Sandy Bridge 3770K DDR3 built to a 5800x AMD build.

If you order online you can always have a copy of your conversation to make sure you don't get ripped off. There is no way I would let Dell get away with this.

Changing the entire SSD is stupid. That means you would have to do constant retesting of SSDs or all the reviews on the internet are worthless. They should at the very least label it as a new product. I remember buying a PNY SSD and it's read and write speeds were 300 when it was advertised as 500. I took it back and Best buy took it back. But, they tried to just tell me that 500 is just a projected speed. Crucial and Kingston SSDs actually give you what they say they do.

It seems like "misrepresentation". It gets retailer's knickers in a twist as you'll win in court. You're entitled to a full refund of the product.. You could get money back if you'd requested some sort of compensation.... I might be wrong but it worked for me when I bought a monitor that was advertised as having AMD freesync... it was high refreshrate but didn't support this feature.... I'm sure you sorted this anyways by now.....

I just bought the ADATA SX8200Pro, the synthetic tests i ran are nowhere near the promised speeds (IOPS/Random read/Random write/Sequential RW u name it). The real-life perf tests by moving/copying/reading 2.5gb zip files dont match near close the speeds promised. All tests done on a clean win10 pro installation with stopped unusual services. I swapped my samsung 960 evo for this and im really disappointed with ADATA.

@Gimi Bsk This drive is so strange, i cant seem to read any s.m.a.r.t. data from it, im running win10 on it, but no program can detect it and read information about it (hdd sentinel, hd tune, samsung programs, intel, you name it)

It started from Adata. Adata changed the controller with the slower SM2262G. Adata said that they are shipping the 2262EN and SM2262G at the same time. They intentionally gave reviewing samples which are the EN variant which are faster and now started to ship the G variant (which is slower and cheaper). The boxes are also the same.. So you play russian roulette when buying them. Edit: Also the SM2262ENG is the same as SM2262EN controller, so there might be still lucky guys Edit2: Also can you check your controller if it’s G or EN, I’m gathering data about that case.. Thanks if you can

The problem with such revisions is that *I've yet to see a hardware store that actually puts up any information at all* about hardware revisions -- so if you're shopping for a particular component, it's nigh impossible to get this information unless you can actually get at the device itself. Sadly, I've yet to see a shop that actually allows you to unbox a device _before you buy it_ and these markings are often only on the device itself. This ultimately means that you may end up searching for performance reviews, purchase the exact model indicated, and end up getting scammed (or, what it amounts to). Customers are *not made aware* of such revisions, and oftentimes searching specifically for them is also a pain. :/

sees cpu pillow, googles motherboard throw blanket, ram body pillow alot of people in my discord got into pc gaming by going to new egg and buying the 300$ "christmas" refurbs and tossing in cheap gpus, alot of of Low Profile 1050, 1650, users on older hardware, along with people who got cheap walmart desktops at some point and just tossed a gpu in it to play games with friends, these people even claim to never want to go back to console now that they have a computer, and plan on upgrading or learning to build at some point, the price of a pc is justified by its multiple application use set, it isnt just a gaming and streaming box hooked up to the tv, its a personal computer for just about anything you need. something i feel isnt said very often.

Well Systems have different degradation periods for each component - CPU - 5-10 years/Core upgrade from feature sets or breakthrough performance levels Mobo - When you either have to upgrade the CPU or new feature sets RAM - When it changes on the mobo, or there is a noticable difference in performance on a changed CPU GPU - Depends on how much you spend typically the Cheaper the more often you will be replacing it, a sub $300 GPU will be replaced most likely every 1-2 years when as $400-500 you have about 3-4 years, and $600+ depends on whether you are a prosumer or a consumer and want the freshness goody or make planned proper upgrades where you can get 4-6 Years when the arch changes enough to net you a huge performance increase as well as new features. Typically people should upgrade every other gen and just set aside money for the upgrade cadence. Storage - When you run out or it dies or slows to a crawl and gets changed to an external. So I mean its not uncommon for components to get swapped on an irregular rate.

Regarding calling in to sales for the secret shopper, maybe a work around would be to spec out something close online, then call in to ask if they can customize the computer after purchase. That would test their sales team as well as their online experience, plus you see how responsive they are to customer requests vs sticking to the assembly line process.

You absolutely should go back to Dell about it. You have weight because of your audience not to mention an actual AV recording of the order. If you don't report dodgy call centre staff it will never change. You complaining may actually make them do something if the right person sees it. Not saying you should sue, but certainly make Dell aware of it, even do a video to show how they handle the complaint/the complaint procedure. Could be useful stuff.

dude, do you even know attorneys or have any working for your company? Dell clearly committed fraud and small claims isn't the proper recourse - it's a class action. Obviously if that happened to you, it's probably happened to thousands of people. As much as people hate attorneys, they wouldn't even be necessary if people like you didn't ignore every time you get fucked over like this. You're exactly why companies like Dell aren't afraid to behave like this.
