Summary: Purchased 44 (eventually more) to use as interactive informational kiosks. The units work well for this because they have no exterior buttons that people can press to mess with the display settings. The unit looks sleek and nice but they are very reflective and the typical fingerprint issue, but that isn't really surprising. It is annoying that they don't make the intel core i7 and Nvidia branding stickers easier to remove, since they leave behind sticky residue.
Summary: I bought this product when it was relatively new hardware, in direct contrast to my usual practices. From experience and theory, new hardware and software are bad buys simply because final beta testing/charley testing--is consumer based. I however had experience with Acer as a seller of sophisticated hardware and actually had faith in them, which is something I generally deride. This has more input ports than the competition. It has two HDMI in and one HDMI out.

Summary: We purchased in early 2013 through Amazon. I wanted to write this review as one of our family members is researching/buying a 27" all-in-one and saw few reviews on Amazon. While touch screens aren't new, 27" all-in-one's aren't that common yet, and I suspect others are reluctant to make sizeable purchases without being able to see in person.
Beautiful machine, good performance, slow startup.

Summary: This is a small footprint all-in-one with a very large screen. The machine itself is very attractive and performs very well. I run finite difference Fortran simulations in the background while running Outlook, Word etc actively and notice no lag. For what you get as regards technical specs, it is expensive though. But for the whole package, the price is decent.
Nice for a mounted or desktop kiosk - windows 8 sucks!

Summary: We are using these as kiosks - mounted on the wall in a wooden frame we made. We purchased the mounts with them. Unit is made real nice and made well - desktop stand is slick - made of metal! Works well other than the crappy windows 8 which is so much more hard to learn with than 7 and back - so different. Why screw up a good thing?
Summary: PROS: Great package, visually appealing. CONS: Very slow set-up. Would not power up without complete reset and power cord plug/unplug. ACER tech support was somewhat helpful but told me the system reset they walked me through would take 45 minutes and it took 6 hours. Clearly, my 7600 was defective...however, I will not ever buy another ACER and am requesting a return right now. I had this in operation for all of 15 hours. Very disappointing.
Summary: I was unhappy w/ the documentation that came with the computer. Some of the actions on the main page were wrong. BUT the small document about the power pack and the ac hookup were the worst. The power pack is indicated as beng on the back of the computer.However there is a notation that the mounting brackets are not included nor is there any indication of how to mount them on the back of the computer.
