Dell Inspiron 15-5558 Notebook Review

Sascha Mölck (translated by Liala Stieglitz), 07/03/2015

Dark screen. Dell sends a 15.6-inch all-rounder into the fight for buyers' favor with its Inspiron 15-5558. The laptop pleases with an IPS screen that, however, has a much too low brightness. Dell could have been a bit less tightfisted with the GPU.

For the original German review, see here.

Dell's Inspiron 15-5558 is the newest scion of the Inspiron 15-5000 lineup and is a 15.6-inch all-rounder. The laptop only has something in common with its precursor in terms of processor. Both models are furnished with Broadwell processors. The 5558 comes with a new casing, and the AMD graphics core still installed in the precursor has now been replaced with a GPU from Nvidia.

Laptops like Acer's Aspire E5-571GHP's Pavilion 15 and Toshiba's Satellite L50-B count to the Inspiron's rivals.

Case

The Inspiron's casing is no stranger to us. Dell also used it for the recently tested Vostro 15-3558. Differences are found in the color and surface finish. The casing is completely made of plastic. The lid's back and base unit's sides feature silver-color plastic, and the lid's back is structured. The display bezel and base unit's underside feature black plastic. The base unit's upper side has a dark-gray rubber finish. A maintenance cover is on the laptop's underside. The Inspiron's battery is easy to remove.

The laptop does not display any serious manufacturing flaws. The material only protrudes a bit on the lid's sides. As to stability, the base unit exhibits the usual shortcomings that we know from most laptops: The base unit can be dented lightly on the keyboard's left and right. However, it could be stiffer; it is too easy to warp for our taste. That is also true for the lid. Pressure on the lid's back leads to image distortions in some places. The hinges keep the lid firmly in position and rock slightly. Opening the lid with one hand is possible.

 
 

Connectivity

The diversity of interfaces will not impress anyone and can be described as standard fare. Of the three USB ports, only one supports the USB 3.0 standard. We expect more these days. Furthermore, Dell has only installed a Fast Ethernet port in the laptop. Gigabit Ethernet is standard nowadays.

Communication

Surprisingly, Dell has only furnished its Inspiron with a Fast Ethernet chip. We would expect a Gigabit Ethernet chip nowadays. After all, other manufacturers also manage to install such chips - even in the low-cost laptop sector. It looks better with the Wi-Fi module, which is an Intel Wi-Fi chip (3160). Positive: In addition to the Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n standard, it also supports the high-speed ac standard. Bluetooth 4.0 is also incorporated on the module. The connection to the Wi-Fi router was always stable. We did not ascertain any reduction in connection speed within a radius of 15 meters around the router.

Accessories

Only safety information and a quick-start poster are in the laptop's box.

Operating System

The operating system is Windows 8.1 (64-bit). A recovery DVD is not part of the included accessories. Users can replace Windows 8.1 with Windows 7 if preferred. Dell provides the necessary drivers.

Maintenance

The maintenance cover can be opened after releasing both fixture screws. The user can then access the hard drive, working memory banks, Wi-Fi module, and BIOS battery. Replacing the hard drive is throughout possible. 2.5-inch models with a height of 7 mm can be installed. The laptop features two working memory banks. Each bank is filled with a 4 GB module. The fan cannot be accessed this way. The casing would have to be opened for that.

Warranty

The laptop is shipped with a one-year warranty by standard when bought directly from Dell. Otherwise it comes with a two-year standard warranty. The warranty can be upgraded in both cases. A three-year on-site warranty, for example, costs 220 Euros (~$243).

 

Input Devices

Keyboard

The Inspiron features a chiclet keyboard that includes a number pad. Our review sample does not offer a backlit keyboard. The flat, lightly roughened keys have a short drop and clear pressure point. The keyboard yielded slightly while typing on it, but we did not find that distracting. The keyboard will not win any awards, but the buyer nevertheless gets a decent keyboard for home use.

Touchpad

The multitouch ClickPad in the Inspiron has a surface area of approximately 10.5 x 8 cm. The laptop's owner thus has a lot of room for using gestures. The single gestures can be turned on and off in the pad's configuration menu. The base unit's rubber-coated upper side is not continued on the ClickPad. The latter's surface is lightly roughened, but that does not prevent the fingers from gliding. The pad has a short drop and clear pressure point.

Display

The review sample that we were provided with had a matte screen with a native resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. The Inspiron is also available with an HD screen (1366x768 pixels). Both the contrast (1180:1) and black level (0.15 cd/m²) of the Full HD screen are very good. However, its brightness is disappointing. A rate of 175.7 cd/m² is no longer up-to-date. We expect a minimum rate of 250 cd/m² here. Curiously, the brightness increased by a good 30 cd/m² in battery mode.

The screen cannot reproduce either the sRGB or AdobeRGB color spaces. The coverage rates here are 61% (sRGB) and 39% (AdobeRGB). The screen's DeltaE 2000 shift in factory state is 8.52. A rate of less than 3 would be desirable. The screen does not exhibit a bluish tint. However, a light reddish tint is visible.

Dell furnishes the Inspiron with a viewing-angle stable IPS screen. Consequently, the screen remains legible from every position. Outdoor use is difficult to impossible due to the screen's low brightness. Its preferred application site will be shadowy surroundings.

Performance

Dell's Inspiron 15-5558 is a member of 15.6-inch all-round laptops. It has enough computing power for everyday use and allows playing computer games to a limited extent. Our review sample is available for approximately 700 Euros (~$773). Dell also has other configurations in its lineup - with and without a dedicated GPU. The currently lowest-priced device costs around 430 Euros (~$475).
