Good product from dell
by Prantik Biswas on 2015-07-24

I was surprised after using this product for about a month. Even after vigorous use of more than six hours, this device never gets heated up even entire full sized keypad remains cold as it was before using it and only the exhaust area warms up out of the entire laptop. Even I was surprised by the efficiency of the laptop as well as the adapter that was provided, even the adapter remains to room temperature after long heavy use.
At present I'm running windows 8.1 pro alongside ubuntu 14 LTS, in windows at moderate use, I get backup of more than 6 hours, battery remains more than 30% in this moderate usage after around 5 hrs (I twicked power saving settings a bit to my own needs).
Although dell says that processor is 1.7 GHz, but it is actually down clocked at 1.7GHz, and I had never faced any lags or issues because of low clock speed.
Screen colour reproduction and contrast is good but viewing angles is just okay for this price range.
So, if you are in a very tight budget you can go for it. If you want this same specification with i3 5th generation, then you have to spend few more thousand bucks & I think you have to buy it form dell official website as I failed to find it in flipkart.
Please remember it is not gaming device although it can handle high graphics games like call of duty black ops, but if you want to play games then instead of integrated graphics please opt for discrete graphics version.

Update: 30th Dec 2015
----------------------------------------
With free upgrade offer I upgraded to windows 10 pro, now there is mysterious problem with realteak audio, dell audio, touchpad and Intel rapid storage technology driver. I needed to uninstall both audio driver as either volume is too high or too low. Touchpad sometimes freezes but fortunately most of the time it works fine. Yes, intel Rapid Storage Technology driver has a huge bug as it prevents complete shutdown in win 10, it makes all other things shutdown except processor and power to peripherals, since cooling system is shutdowned it gets hot like a toaster, problem was solved by dell later by uninstalling this drver.

Meanwhile screen got some dead pixels over here & there, Dell replaced this chinese screen with one lg product. Now it is working fine.

Good build quality, performance, easy typing
by Prahlad Yeri on 2014-09-30

Update on 13-Aug-2015: As of today, I stand corrected. Dell, India turned out to be a big sham. The charging connector of this laptop is extremely fragile and inferior. Part of the connector port got stuck in the laptop while I was taking out the charger. And thanks to Dell's pathetic technical support, they are denying me the accidental warranty, saying its my fault. So, I'm sitting sitting on a broken, unusable laptop just within an year of buying it - Never go for Dell :-(

------------
Inspiron 3542 arrived today by Flipkart. Very satisfied by delivery and service, I got it promptly within a day since I'd opted for the one-day guarantee. Now coming to the product, here is what I felt after an initial usage:
Pros:
1. Solid performance (i3+4GB-RAM rocks!)
2. Good overall build-quality.
3. New chicklet keyboard rocks (Typing is smooth like a butter with this. Having used a Toshiba Satellite for a long time, I was positively surprised)
Cons:
1. Touchpad surface is a bit uneven on the right-edge compared to the attached assembly. Though it is usable, they could have done it better.
2. Some issues with brightness and usb dongles. Though, in all fairness, this is a con of ubuntu rather than the Dell machine. The first issue I faced is that brightness setting is not saved upon restarts (unless you do some geeky stuff like edit the /etc/rc.local file to set an initial brightness). Second issue is frequent disconnection of my tata-photon dongle. This could be resolved by upgrading to 14.04 as it doesn't happen there (I really feel that Dell should have opted for 14.04 instead of 12.04 as their base OS here)

very bad service from flipkart-could not register the laptop for warranty
by Sidharth on 2015-05-10

flipkart totally messed up the warranty registration process. even after following up with flipkart for more than a month, there was no proper response.
finally had to return the laptop after around 40 days because flipkart failed to help me in registering the laptop for warranty.
this entire interaction with flipkart has left a bad taste in my mouth and I will most probably not be spending another penny on flipkart (except for the existing balance in my flipkart wallet).

And yeh, flipkart, i know you wouldn't publish this review :-)
