Not sure I would buy again!

WineCountryLover, Amazon
10 July 2010
  • Summary: Bought this item 1 year ago and after 9 months of careful use the motherboard failed and now I have to find parts for a computer that no is longer made. It's been a real problem. Otherwise it was good for my home use and worked fast for me. However, I'm left with the impression it's not well made.

Dual Monitors is a pain...

Rick C., Amazon
21 February 2010
  • Summary: The computer has 4 video outputs... 2 are disabled.. and in order to output to multiple displays you have to remove the wireless modem and install the extra VGA cable (comes in the box). You have to plug it into the Nvidia card.

Falls over like a drunk

Mark D. Curran, Amazon
22 January 2010
  • Summary: This computer was fine -- till it fell over few times. It's not built so it's safe as it stands. You just barely bump it, and over it goes. Now it wont send a signal to the monitor. Im sure it's doing great computer stuff -- you just can't blooming see it. Dont buy this monster.

Priced right

DDLB, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this as a refurb for $300. Three VERY important things to perhaps save you a lot of time and grief. 1. Mine did not come with a dvi to vga adapter. This item is a must to set it up with your computer monitor as Acer had disabled the VGA port on the back of the computer.

Very Pleased

  • Summary: The computer is fast and suits all of my needs so far. I do not care for the Vista OS,perferring the XP, but that is not an issue with the ACER. Overall, I think is is bargain.

ACER is crap, utterly and completely

T-Bone "T-Bone", Amazon
14 August 2009
  • Summary: Acer has to be the WORST brand ever. If Goldstar made computers, they would probably be better. I actually created restore disks only to not have them work when I needed them. I would steer clear of this crappy Chinese/Taiwanese crappity crap crap. And -that's- the poop on this company!

Acer warning

A. Ogino, Amazon
8 August 2009
  • Summary: A warning to anyone thinking about purchasing an Acer. There is no way to contact Acer other than their outsourced tech support. My desktop's motherboard failed under warranty, I took it to a repair shop to get it assessed, a few days later I was told my motherboard had failed.

Good for it's price!

SOGWAP "Pistikos", Amazon

  • Summary: I would have given only three stars but I thought that unfair because the only computer I feel is really worth buying is a MAC. Still for the money, this one is not bad. I bought it for my son. He's a musician and uses it mostly for recording.
