Nice laptop, but flickering screen issue means that it has a short lifespan

Amazon Customer "peterfromhorwich", Amazon
23 May 2011
  • Summary: Good looking laptop with decent sound, but the screen flickering issue means I'll need to buy a new laptop soon, even though it otherwise still meets my needs well enough. Probably best to avoid.

Dodgy screens, cheap construction, poor display and loads of firmware. Otherwise excellent!

Mad Dave "Always looking sharp and cutting th..., Amazon

  • Summary: I ended up despising this machine. Yes, I was a victim of screen flickering as with many other Acer purchasers. The problem is unsolvable; either you need a brand new computer OR to send off and wait for repairs. It starts gradually, but eventually you will only be able to get a still screen at certain angles, and even then only for a few seconds. Frustrating to say the least. The display is nothing to write home about either.

flickering screen a pain

  • Summary: Within a year the screen had started flickering. I sent it back and Acer had a good system to do so but still a pain to be without the laptop and shouldn't happen.

Good Value for Money if it Works.

  • Summary: The laptop is a good price with great specs but the build quality is very poor and mine only lasted 5 months before the hard disc drive failed. I also had problems with a badly flickering screen (if you look up Acer screen flickering you will see this is common problem - the screen cable wire needs replacing). If you are in your warranty period don't put up with it as it progressively gets worse and eventually makes the screen unusable.

Lack of technical support

Alexander White, Amazon
21 June 2009
  • Summary: When my Acer 5920g arrived it would not play Blu-Ray discs. I contacted Acer and was sent details for changing region settings. It didn't work. I rang again and was told in in a very offhand manner to ring software support. As this is an 090 number I can't ring from work and I am not home in time to ring them. So I emailed, this was acknowledged but six weeks later no reply. I've sent the machine back and had it replaced by Amazons excellent returns system.

Excellent spec but faulty BIOS

Mr. O. Taiwo, Amazon
15 May 2009
  • Summary: I liked this product whilst it was in use for the first 2 months , then vista crashed I sorted it out with the very handy acer recovery cd , re installed everything , after windows installed a few updates the laptop will not start the power and light comes on but its a dead screen and after 5 seconds nothing loads not even windows , this is because the bios has failed to start, some other people have has bios problems before.

Faulty Design

Mr. F. Laffitte Peinado "Gamusino", Amazon
14 May 2009
  • Summary: This laptop is brilliant and good value for money, brilliant specs for it's cost... ... except that it has a design failure and within months of use the screens cable gets damaged due to hinge use, causing the screen to flicker, freeze, blink, go blank, etc. Acer repairs it just changing the cable therefore you will have the same problem again a few months later. If yours doesn't have that problem you will enjoy a great laptop. Good luck.

Apparently solid but lifetime dubious

Robert Mcauley, Amazon
2 March 2009
  • Summary: I bought this for my daughter, Christmas 2008, and she loved the laptop but unfortunately, less than two months later, it would not power up so I've had to send it back. Very disappointed and Acer laptops appear to give too many problems.

Beware Spec is not quite as listed !!!

J. Naylor, Amazon
12 November 2008
  • Summary: This is a very good value laptop for the money with great spec for the price, however it has been listed here as having a ATI mobility HD 3650-512mb graphic card, which is a mid range card well capable of gaming but does in fact have a ATI mobility HD 3470-256mb, which is a lower class card & isn't really capable for gaming at descent frame rates.So if gaming is not your thing this is a very good spec laptop but if you were purchasing this for gaming with the illusion...
