  • The Dell Migrate or Transfer didn't do much more than transfer my files.
    Reviewed by JJ - June 21, 2021

    I could have transfer my files using thumb drives almost as fast - 2 hours vs ? Hardly any of the settings or programs carried over. I had to re-establish Outlook accounts and rules. My Start menu Full Screen - was gone and had to be totally rebuilt. Luckily I had save most Downloads so there was some time savings there but I had to reinstall almost every program, Re-build the Start Menu, and rebuild by Libraries. Started around June 12th and here on the 21st I am still fine-tuning the missing rules in Outlook. Bottom line skip Dell Migrate and transfer your own files and set-up your new computer with the expectation it will take some work.

  • Disappointing
    Verified BuyerReviewed by DonKedick - May 14, 2021

    I spent two hours with tech support on remote access to the computer to do everything they could possibly do. Updated bios, drivers, chipset, everything. I only play CSGO which this should be total overkill for that game. At 1080p you will be lucky to get 200 fps standing still. Averaging 90-150. My last computer was using an I7 4770k and a geforce 760 which was released in 2013. That ran maybe 20 frames less than this computer does. By comparison most of my friends are getting double the frames with much older and less powerful hardware. There is a problem here and Alienware should absolutely acknowledge it and offer a solution.

  • Abducted again
    Reviewed by maos - June 17, 2021

    I had an Alienware ages ago, before the Dell purchase. Great machine, great build, stunningly distinct case, and I upgraded it until the technology aged out. I've had a Dell XPS for 12 years, following the same pattern... and I hit the point where some creative tasks began to suffer from dated motherboard tech, etc. Glad to be back in the Alienware family with the Aurora R12, with the same great features and attention to detail. Order was easy to spec to my liking, shipped two weeks before estimated, and purrs like a kitten (vs my old machine's occasional jet engine). I've cracked her open, and love what I see - clean, tight components, room to grow.
