Review Acer Aspire V5-573G-54208G50aii Notebook

Notebookcheck
14 August 2013
  • Summary: Compact gaming notebook? A light, powerful and inexpensive office notebook is always interesting. The Aspire V5 is equipped with a frugal Intel Haswell processor and an IPS display to satisfy multimedia users. And if you prefer gaming on the go, you will be happy with the GeForce GT 750M graphics. Are we dealing with a gaming notebook in an Ultrabook-disguise?
  • Pros: Very thin construction, Matte display with high contrast, Full HD, Very good color presentation, The thin case in combination with the bright and high-contrast display.
  • Cons: High temperatures, Limited performance on battery power, No SSD, An SSD to improve the system performance.

Review Acer Aspire V5-551-64454G50Makk Notebook

Notebookcheck
27 April 2013
  • Summary: Too noisy, too slow. Acer's 15.6-inch Aspire V5-551-64454G50Makk is a slim and light notebook selling for less than 400 Euro (~$520). The power-efficient AMD A6-4455M APU should guarantee a long battery life. Find out here if the new notebook can deliver on that promise.
  • Pros: 24-month warranty, USB 3.0, Display offers good contrast, The high contrast ratio and the 24-month warranty.
  • Cons: Fan always audible, Hard drive is slow, Not easy to maintain / expand, Battery life not very good (low-capacity battery), The notebook is in desperate need of a faster hard drive. We would also appreciate a less obtrusive cooling fan.

Acer Aspire V5-171-6675

LAPTOP Magazine
26 February 2013
  • Summary: Acer's V5-171-6675 offers speedy performance, a comfortable keyboard and great portability at a budget-friendly price. You won't find a more feature-rich 11-inch machine for $449. However, unless you plan on using this Acer mostly in your living room or near an outlet, we don't recommend it. Less than 4 hours of juice is just sad. If you're willing to spend a little more, we'd get the $499 ASUS Q200.
  • Pros: Compact design, Crisp display, Impressive overall performance for a budget price
  • Cons: Very short battery life, Inconsistent touchpad, Low-grade speakers

Acer Aspire V5 Review

SlashGear
18 January 2013
  • Conclusion: All things aside if you are in the market for a quality 11-inch notebook this is certainly one of the better options available. Given the impressive price/performance ratio and specs you'd expect to see in a larger notebook you'll love the Aspire V5. Of course all that in a tiny package gets quite hot, and if you're going for an Ivy Bridge and 500GB hard drive you might as well pick up something with a 14 or 15-inch display.

Acer Aspire V5 review

Techworld
11 December 2012
  • Summary: The Acer Aspire V5 is a pretty sleek laptop at first glance. But don't be fooled by its silky-smooth silver exterior - there's not a whole lot going on inside this laptop. Sure, it's got its strengths: the touchscreen is responsive and smooth, and video looks and sounds pretty good. But it's got a heck of a lot more weaknesses, such as poor overall performance, lower-than-average battery life, a strangely loud fan, and a noticeably low screen resolution.

Acer Aspire V5-171 Notebook Review: The Death and Rebirth of the Netbook

AnandTech
21 November 2012
  • Conclusion: While I try to approach my reviews without much bias, or at the very least leave that bias checked at the door, I'll admit I haven't had the best impressions of Acer's products when I've reviewed them, and I certainly never imagined I'd ever buy one for myself. When I read about the Acer Aspire V5-171, I approached it with a heady mix of skepticism and optimism: I was pretty sure there would be some dealbreaking problem with it (I'm incredibly picky when it comes to the...

Review Acer Aspire V5-431 Notebook

Notebookcheck
28 October 2012
  • Summary: Ultrabook flair. On a limited budget - but drawn to stylish and thin notebooks? Those not wanting to spend the money for an Ultrabook might be interested in Acer's new 14-inch Aspire V5. Price point: 400 Euros (~$520).
  • Pros: Chassis sufficiently sturdy, Optical drive, Dongle for VGA/LAN, Removable battery, Quiet during every-day use, Low power consumption, Large & very functional touchpad
  • Cons: Noisy keyboard, Short battery life, Glossy TFT, Hardware not easily accessible, Power just sufficient for office-type applications, Gaming not really possible, Noisy webcam

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: Of course, that's assuming your computing needs include Windows and a built-in keyboard. Otherwise, you may be tempted by a tablet—or by one of the many hybrid, convertible, detachable, or dockable tablet/ultrabook combos expected to arrive with the advent of Windows 8. Your number of 3-pounds-or-less, $600-or-less choices is likely to increase before long, but that won't diminish the Acer's slightly retro appeal.
  • Pros: Core i5 processor and 500GB hard drive, Sharp, bright screen, Light weight, Full set of ports, Removable battery
  • Cons: Humdrum design, Crunchy keys, Short keyboard deck, Fan noise, Brief battery life
