Acer Aspire V5-171-6675 Review

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.

Acer Aspire V5 Touch Review

Digitaltrends
21 November 2012
  • Conclusion: The Acer Aspire V5 is only competitive as an entry-level laptop. Jacking the price up to $730 without addressing battery life or performance has predictable results. Touch is the justification for this model’s unusually high price, yet Acer hasn’t made any effort to integrate the touch experience into the laptop. The screen is too far away to reach comfortably, and the laptop is too large and heavy to constantly move about. Using it proved a chore rather than a pleasure.
  • Pros: Low power draw, Inexpensive for a touchscreen laptop
  • Cons: Unpleasant keyboard and touchpad, Touchscreen use seems an afterthought, Short battery life, Lackluster performance, Poor hardware value

Acer Aspire V5 review

TechRadar UK
4 October 2013
  • Summary: A touchscreen and decent build quality can't rescue this budget laptop
  • Pros: Touchscreen, Affordable price, Good keyboard, Attractive design, Light and portable, As a Windows 8 machine, the Acer Aspire V5-122P sets as a goodish example. It's small and light enough to be carried around, but still packs in a touchscreen to make use of Microsoft's new UI. The LED-backlit display is sharp and responsive and, thanks to the TFT coating, boasts a good contrast ratio for consuming media. We also found the chassis to be well built and reasonably good-l...
  • Cons: Annoying touchpad, Poor battery life, Mediocre processor, Lacking connectivity, Limited storage, We really felt the battery should be better in a machine like this. A three- or four-hour battery life is ultimately what we would expect, and the Acer Aspire V5-122P falls short. We felt the biggest usability issue was the unresponsive trackpad that, on occasion, failed to register movement or mouse clicks. It can, to some extent, be circumvented by using the touchscreen,...

Acer Aspire V5 Touch review

TechRadar UK
6 February 2013
  • Summary: A budget Windows 8 touchscreen laptop
  • Pros: Trackpad, Touchscreen, Smooth in use, Good price, As far as Windows 8 interaction goes, this is a top laptop. The trackpad is excellent, and the touchscreen works perfectly. It's rather larger than your average touchscreen, of course, but if that's what you want, it's hard to fault. It all responds smoothly and works well. The screen quality itself isn't bad for a laptop of this price, though the resolution is a let-down. The main thing here really is getting the touc...
  • Cons: Keyboard, Low resolution, Not a lot of power, Battery life not great, You can really feel the price-point groaning here. The lack of high-end power isn't a problem in light use, but it does mean a bit more waiting around, and it means there's not much room to get into something like video editing. But the real issues are the low battery life and the soft, bendy keyboard. Both are easily improved on by other machines without spending much more money at all. And the wei...
