Excerpt: I have owned many computers and laptops. I HATE this one. Vista is a nightmare. No tutorials on the display. The book is useless. The machine has a bluray player the book has no mention of it or how to connect it to your HDTV. this is one of the reasons I purchased it. Thinking about returning it
Summary: My last laptop failed on me due to power problems I then decided to invest £599 on an acer aspire laptop at the time. It looked attractive with a inbuilt webcam. Little did I know it would give me more grief than the first laptop I had. The laptop got sent away over 6 times for overheating and power problems. It is getting sent away to the tech guys on Sunday and getting written off. When my insurance money comes through on it I am investing in a Mac Mini.
Summary: I though it was a good deal buying this product on-line. It was at a better price compare to high street shops, although it didn't come with the office package, antivirus and any type of assistance. I had one year guarantee, but guess what, immediately after the year the laptop started to suddenly switch off. I was asked 230 GBP to repair it. I ended up to buy a new one from a shop!
Very Poor Quality Item and Customer Service is Rubbish
18 April 2010
Summary: When i purchased this item i though, i was buying a very good laptop, i was excited and couldn't wait for it to arrive. 6 months after, purchasing the laptops, i had a few problems, but i solved them, after about 9 months however both the battery and the power supply gave up in close sucession, i called up as i thought i was covered by the 1 year guarentee, however according to acer, the warrentee is only up to 6 months for the battery and power supply.
Summary: This notebook may seem fine, but after having it for less then 4 months the casing holding the power input socket broke internally. It appears that this is almost impossible to fix as I have now had it repaired twice and it is broken yet again. I will never buy a budget Acer again.
Summary: What a flaw this machine is. Acer have tried to win over consumers by adding on all the extra specs and to begin with it won my husband over so we purchased one on 15/10/2008 but by 21/10/08 it was returned to the store faulty with a MAJOR boot problem where apparantly is a common fault with Acer machines.
Pros: All the added extra specs including blu ray
Cons: Large, Heavy, Poor battery life, Not Value for Money at all!!
Summary: Acer tech support has got to be the worst i have EVER experienced. They are rude, send machines back with faults they never had in the first place and will take for ever to fix faults. I would NEVER recommend anyone to buy ANY Acer equipment!
Summary: I bought this laptop after seeing a friends in use for 3 months. My friend had no problems, but the one I bought (and its replacement) both had faults and were returned. Amazon's returns policey was very good and I obtained a refund without any hassle. The moral is, IF YOU BUY ONE - CHECK IT OUT THOROUGHLY; especially the functions that you don't use so often.
Summary: Just to remind buyers that support for HD DVD is now being cancelled and no new films are being released using HD-DVD as Blu-ray has won the format wars- you will probably have to replace the drive if you want to continue to watch HD films on this laptop
Excerpt: Ho un Acer Aspire da 3 anni. L'ho comprato da Mediaworld, era l'ultimo rimasto. Ho avuto problemi sin dall'inizio con la tastiera rotta - l'ho dovuto inviare in assistenza ma solo dopo aver scritto una marea di mail di reclami, chiamato diverse volte il servizio clienti - mi chiedevano di formattarlo per verificare se era un altra causa... A parte il servizio clienti scadente, quando me l'hanno riconsegnato la rotellina del volume non funzionava. Poi ...
Cons: meccanica, affidabilità, plastiche scadenti, servizio clienti esilarante
