Summary: Was terrible. Graphics carps keeps crashing, and is obviously on its last leg, though it was advertised as fully functional. Completely crashes and shuts down periodically. Should have been sold for parts. Reliable only in its unreliability.
Bought a lemon. Repairs on start up, and bsod's.Bios pw so can't install OS
27 May 2014
Summary: Computer works awesome when it boots up. For the most part I have been getting constant repairs and Bsods. I thought cool it came corrupt so why not try to just upgrade to win 8 or just re-install 7. Nope, the laptop has a BSOD password on it and the seller does not have it. I am unable to know load an OS install from boot because of this password. I am at this point with a lemon.
Summary: The laptop seemed to arrive on time and I unpacked it and turned it on. It did not boot up. after trying multiple times I went into the Bios setup to see what was wrong. There was no hard drive detected. I tried booting it up again and the same thing happened. I was going to use this laptop to travel with next week because I needed one to write papers with for my PHD classes.
Summary: I guess this is a refurbished or used computer. It had all kinds of problems including not connecting to the internet and freezing. I would have to force it off as it would freeze in the shut down mode. I tried tech support and rebooted it. I erased everything off of it but it didn't fix the problem. Luckily Amazon is great at returns so back it went.
Summary: this has been the worst waste of 400 quid ive ever spent. been breaking down since i bought it 2 yrs ago. im about to throw it out - im never buying from amazon again, all their stuff seems to break rather quickly. ive also heard acer made some serious mistakes in the build of this laptop. wont be buying acer again! disgusted with this purchase!
