Summary: is a good looking device but not reliable or durable at all. The headphone jack doesn't work, The corner keeps popping up, and also where the on/off button is there is a crack. I haven't dropped it or banged it anywhere it just happened when i was opening the screen. Also the silver stuff on the outside is popping off as well and i have to push it back on.
Summary: I own this "Notebook" since March 2011. The short comings of this notebook are keyboard does not have ambient light. The keyboard it is spongy at times. The maximum RAM is not 4 GB. The battery only last 3.45 hours. The keyboard it is great for super big fingers; hence, the keys are a little big for average hand size. Nonetheless, I rather bigger than so small so I will not end up with hand cramps.
Summary: after about 4 months of using it, the plastic that connects to the monitor broke off. SO my monitor is now loose. I sent it in to Acer repair center for repair. They claimed that plastic casing is not part of the warranty, and said that external force might have been applied for the damage. I heard "click" sound whenever I opened my laptop monitor (I guess that "click" sound is coming from that broken plastic now).
laptop died in six months. Will NEVER buy Acer laptop again.

Summary: I purchased this laptop (Acer Aspire 1430Z-4677) six months ago and mainly use it to connect to TV to watch Netflix. It was running fine during the six months but all of a sudden stopped working a few days ago. Basically it became a dead black screen with light on. Since it's still under 1-year warranty, I've been calling Acer Customer Service over the past few days. So far I've talked to four Acer customer representative.
Summary: I love this notebook. It is only six months old. Yesterday, my keyboard started typing in a bizarre way. Any solutions? It types two letter for some keys. I don't think it is a vifrus. When I type f it types fr. Only about six keys are effected. I am not happy about having to ship it for repairs. Is it the keyboard, software, etc?
Summary: This laptop is very good for the $379 price I paid a few months back. I was skeptical at first thinking that this might be another disgustingly slow netbook, but boy was I wrong. This thing is nothing like a netbook and is very zippy. It does tend to lose some frames on HD videos, but as far as youtube videos are concerned, videos at the default 320p run just fine even at full screen.
Para cualquier tipo de trabajo menos juegos o videos HD.

Summary: Excelente laptop para trabajos, excel, word, navegar, sin embargo para ver videos y usar el cable HDMI no es muy recomendable ya que la tarjeta de video no es buena y con cualquier video muy pesado se traba o no lo reproduce bien.
Summary: I bought this product for my boyfriend who needed a light laptop to carry around his stuff for work: the first impression is good, it seems to be doing what was promised and it is indeed light and compact. Personally, I would have bought an iPad: a lot lighter and more compact and with the same capabilities, but in our case the final user is not too conversant with computers.
