Arrived quicker than it said it would and was pleased that this is exactly the product I ordered--- and buying a higher wattage, since this one is 90 watts and my last one was 65 watts, I thought this would be way larger but it's flat and compact. I've gotten other replacement power cords for my laptop and for some reason the "authentic" Dell charger isn't always authentically Dell, which means they never work and only hold my 0% battery rather than charging it like they're designed to, causing me to have to buy yet another one. I guess buying specifically from Dell would improve that experience, which I went for this time, and it was literally a breath of fresh air when I plugged it in and it immediately charged. Hopefully I won't have to buy another one for a long while, but if I do, I'm coming straight to the source next time.
I looked at all the replacement adapters in the $8-$12 price range, but was leery. I went ahead and splurged for this one in the hopes that it would be okay, and I actually like it better than the one that came with the laptop. It doesn't look or perform like a generic knockoff, seems like it stays plugged into the back of the computer better than the original and even has a little light on the end so you know it's getting power and it makes it conveniently easier to find in the dark. Happy I spent the extra $20 or so on this one.
Bought 2 of these. One of them stopped working in under 2 months. Other one is still working after almost a year.
