  • Summary: I purchased my Acer Aspire 5720z in Feb 2008 (6 months ago)and though generally happy with the laptop - I now find I have no Microsoft Office software available as unknown to me this software was only provided on a "trial" basis and has now expired ! the cost to install this now is 140 Euro (approx £115) had I known this at the outset I would not have purchased this laptop. Beware !

Acer Aspire - annoying touch pad

F. Melville, Amazon
8 April 2008
  • Summary: Recently purchased the Aspire 5720Z - my 1st Acer laptop (always owned IBM's and Compaq's previously). My biggest issue with this manufacturer and design is that the touch pad is too big and too close to the actual keyboard compared to other makes. The touch pad is so sensitive that when you hover your fingers in the typing position the touch pad picks up the cursor and you end up typing in another part of the document or email. It is SO frustrating!

Ofrecen mucho pero duran muy poco

11 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Por las navidades de hace 2 años compramos 2 portatiles Acer Aspire 5720Z, uno para mi y uno para mi hermano. Los primeros meses fueron de fabula, los mejores portatiles que haviamos podido encontrar, pero al partir del primer año empezaron los problemas: El mio tiene problemas de calentamiento. Se calienta mucho y se para. Al trabajar 2 o 3 horas seguidas con el programa 'Word' se para de golpe porque se ha calentado demasiado.
  • Pros: El primer año funciona de maravilla .
  • Cons: A partir del primer año tienen problemas de sobre calentamiento (se paran), y de baterias .

Bello sì... però....

  • Excerpt: ...tutta la linea gemstone di acer (quella con i tasti bianchi per intenderci). La prima cosa che risalta di questi portatili è il rapporto prezzo/prestazioni: Ottimo. Ma se questo parametro diventa prezzo/qualità diventa: pessimo. Il perchè è presto detto: la qualità costruttiva di questi portatili è SCANDALOSA. La suddetta serie ha conquistato la maggior parte dello spazio sui volantini pubblicitari dei vari centri commerciali e di elettronica proprio ...
  • Pros: Bella linea, prezzo basso
  • Cons: Qualità costruttiva, affidabilità
