    I got my dell since 2 years ago and I have had no problems until now. It just doesn't turn on, only the fan (hi-speed) turns on and there is no way to turn it off but unplugging the battery (and as you know you must remove the bottom cover case) or wait until the battery is fully discharged. But there are times (lucky ones) when suddenly is able to turn on and I can work as long as I have to turn it off again (restart, suspend, etc). Is there anyone who has the same issue? Can anyone help me.:confused:

    Hi guys, i thought i give you an update about mine XPS 15z L511z after 3 years of use.

    GOOD
    - the battery still lasts 3 hours, which after 3 years of heavy everyday use is great i think
    - screen still looks like new, no dead pixels and i can use it on 2nd or 3rd level of brightness, its that bright
    - no major issues, all components still work, nothing has been replaced
    - i installed 128GB SSD instead of the DVD drive and laptop is now quicker than when i first bought it

    BAD
    - after installing the SSD, laptop is getting much hotter than before, might be because the vents are a bit clogged with dust
    - the silver aluminium trim bezel which runs around it is getting rusty on several places
    - when the laptop is plugged in, it gives slight electric shocks when touched
    - the speakers are still very bad, my gf just bought cheap Acer laptop for 300USD and it sounds much better

    All in all im reasonably still happy with it, some time ago wanted to upgrade to XPS L522x but after reading about all the problems with wifi, overheating, throttling, i gave up on it. Now im on the hunt for the upgraded XPS 9530 from 2013 but there never seems to be any on the Dell Outlet UK.
    Wonder if anyone still using this laptop and what are your experiences?
