Acer Aspire 5738 3D

CNET
19 April 2014
  • Summary: The Acer Aspire 5738 3D is capable of delivering a passable 3D image, but, in most cases, this functionality is ineffective and gimmicky. Don't let that put you off, though, because -- gimmicks aside -- it's actually a very good machine
  • Cons: Graphics card is mediocre; 3D feature is mostly a gimmick.

ACER Aspire 5738 3D Laptop

Tech2
6 July 2010
  • Excerpt: This year is the year of 3D. It will be featured in every product, including laptops. This new laptop by Acer is no ordinary model, the simple addition of a letter “D” in the model name has added another dimension to the viewing. Ok I'm bored of that pun too, so let's get down to seeing what is really on offer here, in the Acer Aspire 5738 DG model, with 3D capabilities.

Review Acer Aspire 5738DG 3D Notebook

Notebookcheck
4 July 2010
  • Conclusion: Acer's approach to the 3D notebook made a good impression on us. It was able to render DVDs and photographs with an attractive new perception of depth . The better the quality of the starting material, the easier it was for the TriDef software to create a stereoscopic image from it. In games particularly, the 3D effect is excellent and could find some followers despite being strongly dependent on viewing angle.
  • Pros: 3D effect for films, Robust casing, Cool surfaces, Good touchpad and solid keyboard, A 3D effect that is as good as promised - as long as you're not a gamer.
  • Cons: Poor graphical performance, 3D effect strongly dependent on viewing angle, No eSATA or Firewire, Poor sound quality

Acer Aspire 5738DG

LAPTOP Magazine
9 November 2009
  • Summary: Acer has beat other notebook makers to the punch with the first affordable 3D laptop. Not only is the Aspire 5738DG a well-rounded notebook that provides plenty of style and power, but it offers a next-generation feature for less than $800. Gamers may want to hold off until laptops arrive with Nvidia’s more robust (but more expensive) 3D Vision technology, but overall the 5738DG is a good first stab at 3D entertainment.
  • Pros: Attractive design, Fun 3D screen for movies and mainstream games, Above-average graphics performance, Loud and clear speakers,
  • Cons: Struggles with the most demanding games, Hard to find 3D-enabled apps, Below-average battery life, Limited tech support hours,

Acer Aspire 5738PG

LAPTOP Magazine
14 October 2009
  • Summary: The $799 Acer Aspire 5738PG is a well-rounded notebook that provides plenty of style and power, as well as touch capabilities at a wallet-friendly price. For $80 more you can purchase the Sony VAIO NW, which includes a Blu-ray drive and nearly half an hour more of additional battery life, but less graphics muscle. If you want to save some chips, the $599 Gateway NV performs well, but foregoes Blu-ray and gaming capabilities—not to mention a touchscreen.
  • Pros: Attractive design, Good graphics performance, Easy touchscreen navigation, Loud and clear speakers,
  • Cons: Crude glitchy Acer touch interface, Below-average battery life, Limited tech support hours,

PC Authority
4 July 2010
  • Summary: A lot of 3D movies have appeared on the big screen over the last year. Though some argue it's merely a gimmick, 3D is also now appearing on small screens - in this case, the Acer 5738DG 3D laptop.

Acer Aspire 5738PG

GadgetSpeak
22 February 2010
  • Summary: This is a 64bit Windows Notebook that does not cost the earth. The first commercial (rather than an upgrade) product I used was an expensive disappointment, this however should made the juices move, and for an added touch it has touchscreen technology.

Acer Aspire 5738PG notebook review

Pocket Lint
29 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Acer’s Aspire 5738PG is a touchscreen laptop with a difference. Unlike the previous machines we’ve seen with touch-sensitive displays, this isn’t a Tablet PC – so the screen doesn’t rotate at all. Instead, the multi-gesture touch panel is intended to be used alongside the regular interface, speeding up navigation.
  • Pros: A well-specced and powerful laptop, good keyboard, responsive screen
  • Cons: Poor screen hinges, glossy display is a poor choice, touchscreen doesn’t actually add that much to usability
