Summary: I have had mine about 3-1/2 years. I immediately got wireless keyboard and mouse. The DVD drive broke after a couple years, had to buy an external one. Earphone jack went out about the same time, got a USB adapter. I hadn't realized it didn't have Bluetooth.
Summary: This laptop is a beauty. The screen is huge. I so wanted this purchase to work out. Except for the weight, this would have been the ideal laptop for my daughter, who is going to school online. I bought it because I have my own Acer Aspire, (model 5740-5780) and I love it. These are great computers.
Summary: This was relatively a fast computer with reasonable price two years ago when I bought it. But has had a number of issues in less than two years of very light usage. keyboard broke and hard disk failed and had to be replaced. just a lot of cheap plastic and poor build quality.!!!
Summary: Wouldn't boot, I got a message that said something like "check cable! No boot disk detected. Insert boot disk and press any key" Please comment if you have a solution. I have emailed seller and will update review ASAP if they provide solution.
Summary: PRO: AMD's FX Quad Core processor will definitely plow through your basic office tasks without hesitation. After a bit of adjustment, the keyboard works quite well under normal conditions, and the trackpad is better than most I've dealt with.
Summary: I found this laptop screen very bright and clear. For it's size I found it lighter than some 14" LCD laptops. The speakers were loud and clear with no distortion. It came with Windows 7 home premium, so setup was a breeze.
Summary: The computer cost me $369.00 refurbished. A great value. Almost everything works great. The speakers are junk. In most cases they are not loud enough. Other than that I am totally satisfied with the computer.
