Conclusion: There's no denying that NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology works, although those who already wear glasses or struggle to remember to charge their phone will likely find the necessary 3D eyewear a frustration.
Summary: With or without 3D, the limited viewing angles and mediocre audio on the 5745DG make it somewhat disappointing as an entertainment laptop. A similarly configured Dell XPS 15 without a 3D display offers better performance, sound, and design--plus Blu-ray for $100 less.
Summary: The 15.6-inch Acer Aspire 5745DG laptop offers an affordable way of getting into 3D gaming. A Blu-ray drive and faster graphics chip would be welcome though, helping you to take advantage of more 3D content.
Pros: Immersive 3D effect; great keyboard; slick design; decent processor.
Cons: No Blu-ray drive; 3D gaming sometimes overpowers the GPU.
Summary: The Third Dimension. Next to the Asus G51J and the Asus G53JW, the Acer Aspire 5745DG is among the first notebooks with a 120 Hz display and Nvidia's 3D Vision technology. But can the GeForce GT 425M stand the test of demanding 3D-picture rendering? You'll find out in the following review.
Pros: Great Application Performance, Good Touchpad, Bright Display, Good Battery Life, Blu-Ray Drive, Large Hard Drive, 3D Picture Rendering
Cons: Modest Variety of Ports, Uncomfortable Port Arrangement, Low Contrast; Viewing Angles, High Heat Emission, CPU Throttling under Heavy Use
Summary: Touch me. Touch is in, not only for tablets. The Aspire 5745PG is a 15 inch multimedia machine with the brand-new Nvidia GeForce GT 420M graphics (Optimus), which also accepts inputs over its display.
Pros: Good input devices, Touchscreen as a gimmick, Quiet and cool, Optimus for automatic graphics switching, The latest technology in a notebook - who wouldn't like that?
Cons: Glossy display with low brightness, No eSATA or USB 3.0 port, Interfaces in the front areas, A fast interface for data transfer.
Excerpt: High definition may have been the buzzword of recent years, but the two letters that best define the 2010 multimedia experience are undoubtedly 3 and D. Having appeared to have peaked in the '80s, 3D technology is now back in the limelight and seemingly destined for mainstream domination.
