Defective Machine, Bad Hard Drive - DO NOT BUY

Bjean, Amazon

  • Summary: My mom purchased this machine for me through amazon. This machine's hard drive failed after only 8 months of use. I am extremely disappointed with this product. There was absolutely no virus on the machine and luckily my data was backed up regularly. This hard drive showed signs of defectiveness from only the 5th month...until today when it completely failed. Do not buy this product. You will waste time and money!

  • Summary: I bought this from PC World for about £350 a year ago and it seemed ok at first but ive been so gutted by the blue screen and the crashes which appeared in just over a month. Ive heard this is a very common thing with acer computers. I will NEVER buy an acer computer ever again because of this experience. Price has gone down and will only sell for about £200 pre-owned so i'm stuck with this computer until I can fork up another £150-200 for a decent, non-acer computer.
  • Pros: Big hard-drive
  • Cons: Keyboard feels un-natural, Bad speaker, Low battery life, Blue screen comes up sometimes when I start, other times randomly when i'm browsing with Google Chrome, Only takes 3 hours to crash after playing TF2 on lowest graphics, Very laggy, Uncapable, Massive computer but why is it so big? It doesnt have any capability at all. What was all the size wasted on?
