I am totaly happy with my T.V. I love it. I have never hade a flat panel before this. It's so nice hanging on the wall, out of the way. It has a great picture. It does alot of neet things. I can have up to 11 channels going at the same time, not that you would need that many. I am still trying to figure some things out, because of the fact that I didn't get a guide/owners manual with this purchase. That makes it kind of dificult. This television also has great sound with surround. You would be amazed how much it fills the room! Because I didn't get any type of paperwork with this television I give it a good rating.
I have had this Dell LCD now for about 6 months and I am still as impressed and happy with this product as when I first set it up out of the box. The capabilities are numerous. The picture quality with HD compability is like icing on the cake! I am currently deployed in Kuwait and use this LCD at work and have invested in a rather expensive case just so that I can take it back home. The Pic n Pic is super. I tell eveyone that if you had told me Dell made a product this good I woul have called you a BALONI artist! Without a doubt if you are in the market for a SUPER LCD I can not highly recommend this LCD enough! U will not be disappointed!
Ok i'll start with the positives by saying this is a good TV, it's sharp and clear picture coupled with the rediculous number of connectivity options made this the perfect choice for me as a second monitor and occasional TV for watching films etc.
So on the surface, this product isn't bad! .. Or so I thought.. However, the problem is that after just 4 years of ownership, it has developed the well known 'power on' fault. Essentially this means, that having paid £560.00 for this TV, it is now useless.. and has cost me £140.00 per year to own! Despite the well publicised issues surrounding this issue, Dell are rarely willing to acknowledge it's existance and many alleged 'reset' fixes, hardly ever help. So for most buyers, this fault will mean only one option, replacement! and that's an expensive pill to swallow if you paid top whack for the TV as I did.
So in summary, potential buyers have only one choice.. buy something else.. do not think for one moment that i'm in the minority, far from it, i'm one of the lucky ones as many owners report there W2600's lasting much less than the somewhat dismal 4 years that I achieved. Quite simply, the figures do not add up and its not worth the risk.
You really should buy something.. ANYTHING else, just *NOT* the Dell W2600!
Like the rest of you I agree this LCD TV is horrid. I hade mine for a good year and then it would not go back on. The power supply on these things are so bad. I could not return mine because it was out of warranty and after calling Dell 5 times and talking to so many different people I could buy a new set for $750. Don’t waste your time, buy something that works . . .
I'd looked for 6months for the perfect flat panel TV. Samsung was what I wanted, then I saw the Dell W2600 and fell in love. It sleekness and the technology is awesome. Picture quality is awesome. I puts out a lot of heat which I don't like. But overall, it's excellent, and I purchased it on EBAY for an exceptional price.
