My father just got a Dell 8300. The green led on the front panel is
very dim. Wouldnt be a very big deal to me but he can hardly see it.
Is this normal on all 8300 cases or did he get a dim one?? Thanks.

It seems to me that I have heard that comment before and I have a friend
with an 8300 which has the difficult to see LED.

The LED is small and depending on the viewpoint is hard to see. I suspect
it's probably normal as well.

It looks dim because it's constantly flashing on and off as the drive is
being accessed. All normal.

Thanks for all the replies. Dad was thinking about calling Dell about
this but I talked him out of it. He cant hear very well and the Dell
tech people cant speak english very well so that call would have been
a real trip! Again thanks all.
