very bad customer service

meena, Amazon

  • Summary: it is not a good quality one, very slow and shut down problem, each time we need to pull out the battery to shut down. I have bought the computer before 3 months and I can't do anything with this now. not good audio also.

abysmal

STKS, Amazon
8 February 2013
  • Summary: If I could give a "0", I would. I ordered this for my brother. No sooner did the return window close than the operating system began to fail, first randomly blue-screening, and then announcing the OS was counterfeit. Now he's stuck with a $360 paperweight. Next time we'll go to Best Buy, they actually have service. Edit: Acer finally agreed to take it back and redo the OS.

wifi no good

Irish Mom of 3, Amazon
21 July 2011
  • Summary: Out of the box I couldn't be further than 10 ft away from the router for this to connect to the wifi. I went to Acer's website and downloaded all the updates. I could then be further away from the router, but I kept losing the connection even though the signal was excellent. Three days after I bought it, I returned it.

Terrible laptop

Billie, Amazon
28 June 2011
  • Summary: Bought this for my granddaughter at walmart and she had nothing but problems with internet connection. She took it back and exchanged it thinking it was faulty then she called tech support when the same problem happened and they really did nothing. This lap top is not worth the money it took to make it! If you are looking for a good laptop dish out the extra $50-$100 for a higher quality one.

Very Poor Wirless Adapter

las, Amazon
26 June 2011
  • Summary: Very dissapointed! Wireless adapter made by "Aerothos"...never heard of them.... Can't be more than 10 feet from the router...., whats the point of it being wireless? Even went and exchanged it for another duplicate lap top because I thought the first one must have been defective... Nope! the second one was the same....I even called tech support at Acer....tech admitted it must be a poor brand of adapter...no fooling....dont waste your time or money on this one!

You get what you pay for...

Ms. L. A. Stone, Amazon
15 August 2012
  • Summary: Despite the "get what you pay for" title I have only given this product 1 star because I think you can get better for this price. I owned an old Acer for 6 years that served me faithfully but it was time to get a better one as Intel Pentiums are a bit old hat and 512 MB RAM is just impossible these days,LOL! I *thought* I did my research properly to find a laptop with the best value for money and I still believe in the Acer brand.
