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.
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.
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.
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 !!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
