Problems and Issues with Dell 7560

#1 Dell 7560 Display

The Dell Inspiron 7560 is a nice looking premium laptop from Dell. The bezel-less Full HD 1080P TrueIPS display is amazing. These Thin Bezels really adds beauty and look to this laptop. But there is an issue with the display itself. Many users commented that their 7560 is having color bleeding issues. This was not with me until one day I noticed it just after 3 months of usage.

You can see color bleed when you turn on the PC and when the screen is completely black. You need to turn off room lights or get in the dark, only then you will be able to see color bleed. It’s not good for people who are into photo editing or designing. Due to color accuracy, this display offers.

#2 Dell 7560 Battery Backup

Another part is the Battery life of Dell 7560. It gives around 4hrs to me on an average which includes surfing the Internet, downloading content and watching videos on Youtube, Netflix etc. Please note that my Chrome browser stays open with at least 7-8 tabs, which consumes both RAM and processing. But that backup is seriously not impressive at all.

I don’t do video editing or run heavy apps on battery power. I always use power adapter while using Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects and while playing games some times. The good thing is Dell provides a dedicated software called Dell Power Manager Lite which protects the battery from overcharging while on adapter mode. This software intelligently uses the power from the adapter to run the laptop at its full speed while improving the lifespan of the battery. So a big thumbs up to Dell for that.

#3 Graphics Card (940MX 4GB DDR5)

Although this Dell Inspiron 7560 comes with a DDR5 4GB graphics card that still is a 940MX which has a very poor performance while gaming. So if you think that you can play games like Witcher Hunt or GTA, You can but at low frame rates that too on low graphics setting.
The 940MX is not good at handling graphics and it has its limitations. It’s a low power Graphics card specially designed for laptop and ultrabooks to save power.

Dell 7560 Gaming

While on battery power the 940MX runs at 25-40% of its power. But as soon as you connect the Dell 7560 to a power cord the system starts performing at full speed and at full power. But still, it’s not a good option for gaming even if you are a casual gamer.

#4 Coil Whine and Heating issues

The laptop is very quiet and that’s a good thing but soon you will realize the effect of quietness when the system starts to heat up quickly when you play a game or work on software like Premiere Pro and After Effects doing some serious rendering tasks.

The fan starts running at full speed which is obvious but doesn’t produce much sound, it’s quite. This system has a single cooling fan which is a little inefficient in cooling the GPU and the CPU when required. The keyboard area gets very warm if you play or work for long like an hour or so. So that’s another issue with this system and performance obvious goes down as it heats up but that’s not significant.

For example, when you play a game like Witcher hunt, you get frame rate around 40FPS MAX but as you play the fps starts going down and drops to 30-34 FPS and I am talking at the low graphics settings. This could further go down as you play for longer. While working on premiere pro I don’t feel any major issues. It works really well even when it’s hot.

#5 Storage and RAM

This laptop is equipped with a 1 TB Hybrid SATA HDD with 8GB Cache and 128GB SSD from Adata. It’s an M.2 SSD drive, not a PCIe or NVME, it’s called MSATA. I received many questions related to SSD on Dell 7560. Guys, It’s an M.2 SSD drive, not a PCIe or NVME, it’s called MSATA. I got a lot of questions regarding the SSD, Guys it’s an M.2 SATA SSD which supports speed up to 6Gbps only. The boot time is around 10-12 seconds. I too feel that there should have been an NVME or PCIe slot for SSD instead of MSATA.
The performance could have been significantly better with PCIe slot.

Dell 7560 RAM

Dell 7560 RAM Frequency

RAM which comes with Dell 7560 is a Hynix 8GB DDR4 RAM CLOCKED AT 2400mHz but the system utilizes the RAM AT 2133MHZ. And I have talked to customer support both on call and email and believe me guys they have no idea about this. You can see in the BIOS it says 2133 MHz but when you look inside Dell 7560, you will find the RAM which is clocked at 2400Mhz. This is a big issue with this laptop but I hope this will be resolved soon with a new bios update from Dell.

Conclusion

So those are the issues and reasons why you shouldn’t buy Dell 7560. But still, I am pretty happy with my purchase. The laptop looks really nice and weighs 2kG, little heavy but that’s OK. It’s a 15 Inch model. Other than that The system performs well, I purchased this for video editing, not for games. If you want a gaming laptop, do consider Dell Inspiron 7567 with Nvidia 1050TI Card which was recently launched in India. It’s one of the best budget gaming beast available in the market. so do check out 7567, the links are given in the description.
