User Review

ughhhhh, Walmart

  • Summary: I should have known better. Acers are terrible computers. I have the smaller Acer Aspire with Window 8.1 and touch screen. It is so slow that I can't use it. It seems to get slower the longer you have it turned on. This model is not much faster. And it is terrible with internet connections. It takes forever to load a site... if it loads at all. Sometimes I have to power off and then back on to get online. That doesn't always work though. I've tried more than one server.

  • Summary: Description is wrong. This Acer does not feature a touchscreen. Seemed to be an ok computer but not really worth the money for me now. I returned it the same day. Didn't bother to test the speed with the SSD cache.

DOA

Eileen C., Newegg
9 May 2014
  • Pros: The computer did start up and I was loving the backlit keyboard. One minute later, the screen dimmed and the battery light started to flash. 30 seconds later I lost the power. I'm getting a replacement sent. I'll update review when I receive it.
  • Cons: Wish the machine would start.

Save time and money - don't become Acer user

Campbell, Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: I am a computer professional with a lot of years of experience, I have bought many many computers both for work and for my own use. I have never had such a piece of low quality, below par computer as this one. For the first six months or so, the computer worked beautifully (and I was reasonably happy, though the high price was a bit of concern). And then suddenly, the laptop would not boot, because of a hard disk failure.

don't buy it

Mr. Victor Leong, Amazon
22 March 2014
  • Summary: It's possibly the worst product from one of the worst company on the market. This is the second acer laptop that I purchased and I regret both purchases. I should have learned from my first mistake not to try an Acer product again. I thought maybe if I choose my component well that it would get a great laptop. Even with an i5 chip with a window 8 touchscreen, it's virtually useless. At this moment it just doesn't even open up.

Acer Laptop Is Useless

Daniel A., Newegg
13 February 2014
  • Summary: When I first received my laptop I noticed the computer would only charge when restarted. That was issue number one. Issue number two was that even at 95-100% battery level the computer would just die as if I pulled out the battery. This was due to bad hardware because even in the boot sequence my laptop would sometimes die, meaning its not a software issue. Normally the warranty is there for this reason but here is where things take a turn for the worse.
  • Pros: Absolutely none. Does not perform as accepted, warranty that came with it is useless too.
  • Cons: Everything
