    I disagree. After a fresh install of Windows 10, with the latest drivers and .19 firmware (Factory default immediately after flashing), AHCI mode with no Intel RST driver, my system is 100% stable. Cpu thermals are top notch, idle between 28 and 32c and quickly back there after peak performance, with stock voltage and no repaste.

    This is a great laptop if you have the patience and persistence to get all the drivers installed correctly.

    Weird, I have the same ones as you including version (except I only have the one Intel, not the whole list of composite devices underneath but I suspect this is what you've plugged in the XPS itself)...
    But none of the USB devices I've plugged in are triggering anything other than charging or powering up...

    Is the Ethernet adapter listed under the network section?

    I've got a strange issue. If i'm playing audio (through speakers or headphones) and change the screen brightness, the audio starts to crackle. Does any of you recognize this problem? Or is there something wrong with my system?

    Just tried Linux Mint (since Ubuntu really doesn't wan't to boot), here no disortion of the sounds. Apparently Windows is to blame

    Hi xps users,

    I'm about to purchase a refurb XPS 15 (FHD, i5, 32g+1tb) on ebay, but I'm a little worried because of numerous QC issues that are reported on the internet. I really want to buy this laptop, but I don't want to mess around with a defect unit out of the box. So is this true that Dell's QC is horrible and I'm likely to get another defect unit? I just wanna know your personal experiences. Thanks!

    It's hit and miss. I am waiting. For 4th replacement from Dell. If you buy that refurb, I am pretty sure you won't be able to exchange it.

    Really? I've heard that ebay sellers are authorized dell resellers and the machine itself comes with the standard Dell 1-year warranty.. I hope that it's not true.:(
