Everything works great except the SSD

Emily B., Newegg
5 May 2015
  • Pros: Good specs, it boots quickly, graphics are pretty decent for simple games, the HDD size is nice. Speakers are decent.
  • Cons: Firmware issue with SSD. Every time the battery get's low, we get the "No bootable device, hit any key" message. Occasionally I can get it started by moving around the boot order with F2 or sticking in a USB with a bootable version of ubuntu and restarting. Other times it just won't boot and we j...

Horrible product

David S., Newegg
16 June 2014
  • Summary: The SSD started to not read all the time after 8 months. The display just started to display lines in the screen that come and go. The laptop hasn't moved in months and nothing was placed on the screen. So I know its not cracked.
  • Pros: Quick Good display
  • Cons: Windows 8

Not worth the money

Thomas W., Newegg
25 August 2013
  • Pros: Started out as a nice purchase, but as time has passed, this machine has had more and more issues.
  • Cons: This laptop was supposed to be my gaming/school laptop for my final years of college. It started out great, running games like Skyrim at Ultra High Quality. Only issue I had with gaming that hard was that I would torch whatever I sat next to from the heat it produced from the vent. Over time, tho...

Harddrive has failed twice

Tiffani W., Newegg
25 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought my laptop on 2/26. I had to send it in to Acer because my battery stopped actually charging - no problem I pretended it was a desktop. I went to carefully change the battery. I turned my computer off properly, opened it up, took out the battery to check, put in a new one...
  • Pros: Beautiful graphics, whisper quiet, runs incredibly fast
  • Cons: This is the second time my motherboard has failed and I am sending it back for repairs

Good laptop but died quickly

Jamey B., Newegg
17 May 2013
  • Summary: Dear Acer, I understand components fail. I'm an engineer, and I see it in my own projects. But when a customer has a product for only 2 weeks, you don't repair it, you replace it. And you don't even think about having them pay shipping. This is a nice computer at a nice price.
  • Pros: Great display, not 1920 but saved some money on this 1600. Very fast, boots in seconds. This is my development machine and it runs quickly. Large but not bulky. Everything was working so nicely, until.. See cons.
  • Cons: The backlight in the LCD died after only 2 weeks. Acer said it had to be repaired, not replaced! It will take 7 to 10 days for repair, and they wanted me to pay for shipping!!! They finally agreed to pay for shipping if I provided a proof of purchase. This is my business computer. I'm a software ...
