    Default How long did it take DELL to build and ship your order?

    I ordered a Studio XPS 3/8/09 and i'm not supposed to receive it until 4/13/08. To me that seems like a really long time.... I was just wondering how long it took to receive your custom orders.

    Default Dell time to build and ship Studio XPS?

    Don't know if this is usual or not myself. I ordered a Studio XPS desktop on 3/22/09 and it is scheduled to be here on 4/23/09.

    yea a month just seems like a really long time....especially since it was advertised to much you'd think they'd have parts on hand.

    They had the XPS sale event recently. I called to cancel my order a week ago and they wrote down "customer didn't want to wait." I priced out a better machine for almost the same price but the 435T model instead of the MT. The ship date was scheduled for 04/16/2009. Ordered 4/2/2009, shipped, and received on 4/9/2009!

    I will have to post about the 435T after some testing, so far it looks great. I read the 45+ page thread on the dell community forums and there are lots of people waiting on their XPS 435MT and 435T orders - some from back in February. I don't know why or how mine got sent so soon, but I am happy to have a new machine.

    I got my xps the 4th as quoted. I too was looking at the 435t
    but at the time i oredered it my 435mt was a much better deal...by the time of the XPS event it was too late to think about canceling. Either way i think both computers will be good. After a week i've have no problems setting up the computer but will wait a little longer to write a full review. End in end i submitted my order 3/08/09 adn received it 4/4/09.

    Just a quick update - Dell forgot to ship the monitor on my order (boo). I didn't get to open the box until yesterday and the monitor wasn't shipped. Quick call to Dell and they expedited a new monitor shipment. Looks like they will hit their initial estimate of shipping after all.

    Shows as ordered 4/14/2009 and shipped 4/15/2009. Hopefully I will get it tomorrow or Friday. Then I can finally see what this computer is about with the SX 2210 as the display @ 1920 x 1080. Currently it is hooked into my old CRT running at 1024x768 (boo)

    There probably is a FAQ on how to review or bench new desktops on here somewhere. I will try to find it and post some information on it.

    I too am happy to have a new machine finally, well most of one anyway.
