  • Summary: Within a couple months of buying this computer it started going nuts. Turning off all the time, needing to be updated ALL the time...as a student it drives me nuts cause I have lost work more times than I can count. The touch screen is crap.

Disposable Laptop

  • Summary: We bought the Acer Aspire V5 for our son to use at school last year. 3 weeks ago, the hard disk crashed. We installed a new disk, then discovered Acer does not have a Win 8 download. We got a Win 8 install on a USB drive, only to find the Microsoft product key is on the hard disk that crashed.

Not good value

Sacha V, Amazon
13 March 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this to use solely as a word processor. I cleared out all the bloatware and installed MS Word 2013. The 1GHz processor is impossibly slow and couldn't even handle a single document. As soon as I loaded a 50k word document, it crashed. Re-boot, opened Word, opened document, crash.

worst piece of junk

Amazon Customer "rdm0818", Amazon
7 January 2014
  • Summary: worked just OK for a few weeks, then noticed a big slowdown in processing speed....took to Best Buy Geeks and they said the processor shares with video or something like that and that slows it all down....now I'm past the 30 day to return deadline and I'm stuck with it....DO NOT BUY THIS JUNK !!!!

This may be the last Accer I buy

Driver Bob, Staples
2 January 2014
  • Summary: They need to have good tech support and don't. Having trouble setting up Accer ID. On-line support basically sucks. Try to get through to the call center is hard to do, especially for someone working during the day.

A $400 MISTAKE!

Nathan King, Amazon
1 December 2013
  • Summary: TOO SLOW! Bought it for my son, he hated it! Gave to my wife she hated it! Both say it's too slow. It takes about 2 mins to start up. I waited too long so I can't return it. I'm guessing the processors not powerful enough to run the new Windows. I'm an Apple guy so not up to speed on Windows.

It sucks

drillit2, Amazon
14 November 2013
  • Summary: This is the worst computer i have owned. If you want to multi task this is not the computer to get. It is very slow, and windows 8 just sucks. It does not have an hdmi port as stated. Overall its not worth the money.

Way too complicated and delicate

ODIE, Staples
11 October 2013
  • Summary: actually, I thought that having a touch screen would be a very awesome thing to have. I looked forward to learning how to navigate the touch screen. The PC came with no instructions. I found that it was my worst nightmare.
