  • Summary: Generally, this Acer Aspire V3-571-9646 has great features and plenty of disk space, but it also has two bad habits that prevent me from liking it as much as I should: 1) The space bar frequently doesn't work, and 2) about every hour I get a pop-up informing me I've already registered my Acer computer. (Note, it says "Your Acer product is already registered.") What possible purpose can that message serve? Both of these deficiencies are extremely annoying.

And I thought I was pretty computer savvy

J. DeLong, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this computer December 7, 2013 and it worked okay.This computer is average. After 4 months the battery wouldn't hold a charge then shortly after that you could only use the power adapter to run the laptop. We ordered a new battery, charged it up (or so we thought) and now the computer won't boot up/turn on with either a new battery, the old battery or no battery. It is a piece of junk. DO NOT PURCHASE AN ACER. And I thought I was pretty computer savvy.

Very tempting buy but do not be allured, this purchase is a mistake

  • Summary: I purchased this laptop on about 4/10 and it broke before I had owned it for three months. While I agree that it was an excellent computer for the time it had lasted despite several small issues, it is definitely a machine that isn't worth any money. Keep in mind, it didn't break via a drop or spill.

Good computer, crappy support

Matt Bohannan, Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: I've really enjoyed using this computer for the past year, it has met all my needs and I've never had a problem with it. As a matter of fact its been a fantastic machine for my needs. However, in the past week the power jack has developed an issue and has apparently come loose in the computer. So the only way it will charge is if I hold the power cord into the computer. This, as you might imagine, is far less than ideal. So I contacted Acer support.

NIGHTMARE

freddie, Amazon
26 April 2014
  • Summary: I don't know if I just got a "dud", but this machine crashed and went to blank screen either every day or every other day. I was really disappointed as I had previously has an Acer for 10 years and was happy......not this time. When I talked to the "help" line I was not very happy. They wanted me to return the machine and I wouldn't have gotten it back for several weeks.

Backspace key works inconsistently

Jen, Amazon
25 April 2014
  • Summary: I've just started using it this past week so I'm still getting used to the feel of the new keyboard. Everything seems fine so far except the keys are spaced a bit farther apart than I'm used to. I have to stretch to get to the backspace or return key which isn't conducive to smooth and fast typing (I use my 5th finger which is the norm). The most annoying thing which caused me to downgrade to 2 stars is the backspace key.

Not good.

Lee Ann Cogert, Amazon
8 April 2014
  • Summary: At the time i ordered the computer it had a different description of it on the Acer website which then forwarded me to the Amazon link of purchasing the computer. It was not the same graphics card as listed on the Acer website for that model. When i returned the computer and went back to check the description one day later on Acer, the description was changed to reflect the correct information.
