Summary: Right around the time the warranty ran out, the fan started having issues. It will seize up and cause the unit to overheat and shut down. Upon examining the inner works, it is obvious that the fan is placed too close to stationary parts and cannot turn freely. And there is no fix for it.
Summary: I was quite happy when I first got the computer.About 30-40 days later, started having issues with the wireless mouse and keyboard. Called co. a few times. They sent me a new keyboard, mouse and transmitter. Not working at all. Latest call to them, they ask me to send computer for them to check, mind you at my shipping expense. You would think that they would at least absorb that, being that it seems to be a defective product.
Summary: Sent this machine back 3 times in the past 4 months. Each time I was without a computer for 1 1/2 weeks. I kept describing a loud sound and sudden shut down (sounded like a bad fan to me). The first couple of times, they refused to check the fans but replaced the hard drive twice. I finally convinced them to replace the fan. Now it's quiet but it keeps freezing and the screen is doubling and tweaking out. At what point should they replace the unit?
Summary: Major design flaw on this unit. The adjustable arm it rests on is spring loaded and the glass over the monitor is thin and shatters. I had mine set up completely vertical and while touching the screen it slightly rocked back causing the spring to slam closed. This unit is so heavy when the spring closed on the arm it sent it flying forward toward me with great momentum. It landed on my arm and shattered leaving glass in my arm.
Summary: Great design, Windows 7 is ok with a few of the usual Windows problems, but cruising the web is very slow, often not possible to get to a webpage. The green bar gets about halfway to the end and stays there. I don't know if it is the Mcafee security program or what, but the seven year old Sony I replaced with the Acer was much faster. I'd like to know if anyone else has this problem. I am a pretty technical user and don't know what to try. Thx.
Summary: I got this computer about a month ago it, great machine all around and it looks wonderful, I would definitely recomend this computer to any one with a small space and a need for a big monitor with a touch screen that once you get to know you have one, you would love. The keyboard is the only part of the package than lets it down but still very usable.
Summary: This computer is excellent in design the clarity is very good onscreen it has excellent speed all round very easy to access the ports also loving the large display of all items you need to view onscreen the webcam is excellent the sound is very good even though at times it makes this screeching sound as though trying to pickup signals i love the idea of the flashdrive for use, windows 7 is excellent I have not tried the touch music yet but it should be ok the touch media...

Summary: This ACER all in one is truly a pleasure to work and play on. I upgraded from a 5 year old PC and this is worlds apart. The screen is huge, the colors beautiful, the touchscreen is fun, etc. Set up was a cinch even for a novice like me. The wireless, clutterless aspect sold me. Even the speakers and web cam are built in. Only the power plug and the modem line, that's it! I haven't explored everything yet but what I've used I love.
Summary: I am very pleased with this unit and really enjoy the 23" screen. The clarity is excellent; its speed is very good; it is super quiet and I have not run into any snags since installing it on February 2nd, 2010. The touch screen is sensitive and you need to beware of old habits of touching the screen to point out something to someone else or to even brush lint from it as you will activate its ability to move things around.
Summary: Had advice on which make and computor to order, absolutely delighted with this model, I have to be dragged off, otherwise I would be operating this computor all day, just love it, wonderful 23in screen. I can't give you loads of technical words, I just can't get enough of this machine. I suppose if I could find any fault at all, its the keyboard, its fine, but a bit on the small side, compared to my last computor. But I'm getting used to that now.
