    "Great ad on for Dell PC's"

    November 22, 2010  |   By cjcotterill

    Version: Dell Dock 1.50c

    Pros

    Conveniently hides at the top, side or bottom of your screen and allows your desktop to be free of icons. Also can house all program icons inside folders allowing you to easily find them

    Cons

    None to report

    Summary

    I love Dell laptops. Every laptop I have owned has been a Dell and will continue to be. These little free programs that they come with are one of the reasons i choose Dell. The Dell Dock conveniently hides away all your icons away leaving your desktop free of icons. It also divides icons up into folders so even large amounts of icons can always be found easily.

    The interface of the dell dock is also very smooth and colorful It allows you to change the color of the dock and change how the icons interact with the mouse. It fits in perfectly with the Windows Aero theme.

    You would also think something like this would take allot of your memory to run, but that is not the case. I have tried running with and without the dock and found that it left no imprint on my overall laptop performance.

    In conclusion, I can find nothing wrong with this program and have found it to be more then useful on my Dell laptop.

    March 5, 2010  |   By uwdoug79

    Version: Dell Dock 1.50c

    Pros

    I love this product. It's cool and an easy way to organize your applications and clean up your desktop.

    Cons

    Shame on Stardock and Dell. I have 3 dell computers at home and use this product on all of them. I have work computer that it not a dell and had the product running on... UNTIL TODAY!!!.

    Summary

    Shame on Stardock and Dell. I have 3 dell computers at home and use this product on all of them. I have work computer that it not a dell and had the product running on... UNTIL TODAY!!!. I received a reboot alert from my xp machine. Imagine my suprise when it rebooted and would not load DellDock because it was not a DELL PC. Not only that, to further the frustration the message appears on every reboot and it appears when trying to remove the program. That's not cool.

    "Programs grouped by task, easier to locate programs"

    September 21, 2009  |   By misitio

    Version: Dell Dock 1.50c

    Pros

    Having the programs in one place make means I don?t waste time between the start menu or the desktop icons looking for specific programs.

    Cons

    You can create as many categories as you want however, it has a limited number of useful icons.

    Summary

    While I like the dock concept of organizing programs into tasks I would prefer for the dock itself to be more streamline. In the interest of saving a click, it would better if when the mouse hovered over a category the drop down was automatic.

    "Not a bad application, duplicates existing features."

    September 10, 2009  |   By kreibling

    Version: Dell Dock 1.50c

    Pros

    Pretty graphics

    Cons

    Though it works well, it is a duplication of the Windows Desktop Icons, and has no other benefits.

    Summary

    The application works flawlessly and very attractive, but since it duplicates existing features only, it becomes just another program running in the background on your computer. I disabled the application on my (Dell) computer.
