Good Laptop, cannot recommend

Riley N., Newegg
2 October 2013
  • Summary: This is my first own laptop and I only really have my brother's 17" MacBook Pro to compare to, but this Aspire felt less refined with fewer bells and whistles. Maybe my comparison is unfair, but it is what I have to compare to.
  • Pros: i5 pulls very well, but does not clock down automatically as much as I would like - lowest is 1195 MHz To save power and reduce temps, graphics are the HD 4000 on the CPU normally and switches to the 730M for more stressful applications Has space for a second 2.5" HDD/SSD as well as two more RAM ...
  • Cons: TERRIBLE vertical viewing angles - my biggest complaint Lowest brightness level is still very bright in a dark room Trackpad scrolling is choppy and not smooth This one is obvious, but it is big and was not intended to be very portable There are no Caps, Num, and Scroll lock lights so you don't k...

Fine, except one thing

David S., Newegg
19 September 2013
  • Summary: It's perfect except for the whole "wi-fi not working" bit.
  • Pros: Graphics card handles the games I play, screen is really nice, keyboard feels nice
  • Cons: Wifi card is broken, and it seems to be a common problem. http://community.acer.com/t5/Notebooks-Netbooks/Acer-wifi-limited-connectivity-issue/td-p/3405/page/9

SSD Fix

James P., Newegg
17 June 2013
  • Summary: I found a fix for the SSD "No Bootable Device" without sending it in to ACER. I got a Rosewill SATA to USB Cable Converter. I tried running it through USB, but that didn't work (the hard drive showed up in Device Manager, but was not listed under "Computer").
  • Pros: See my previous review for details.
  • Cons: See previous review

No bootable device.

Matthew C., Newegg
10 June 2013
  • Pros: Fast rig. Certainly not the fastest thing out there, but it's only $1200 so you get what you pay for.
  • Cons: The SSD. I've had to send the laptop off to Acer three times. No joke, THREE times! You'll notice that Acer doesn't list the SDD brand under the specifications. Intel 320 Series SSDSA2CW120G3 is the SSD you're looking for. This SSD has an very bad issue data loss issue. If power is unexpectedly i...

SSD Dead after 3 months

James P., Newegg
7 June 2013
  • Summary: For what it's worth, I bought two of these laptops at the same time, one for me and one for my wife. My wife's laptop is still going just fine.
  • Pros: While it worked, it's been great. Incredibly fast boot time. Great gameplay on modern games. Excellent connectivity to the internet. Great battery life. Great screen resolution and quality.
  • Cons: Windows 8 is stored on a solid state drive (SSD instead of a traditional hard drive (HDD). If your SSD dies, then you lose Windows. The laptop worked great until I opened today, and I noticed it had "0% Battery". It immediately died, and then I tried plugging it in and booting it back up. All tha...

Hardware is decent. Customer Service isn't.

J. Hunley Hurst, Amazon
23 May 2013
  • Summary: The computer itself is solid and it's understandable that you will occasionally purchase something that fails and it needs to be fixed. That being said, it's very irritating that their customer support center isn't located in the US and I have a very hard time understanding the CSR's I'm forced to...

1 out of 2

Aaron B., Newegg
19 May 2013
  • Summary: We ordered 2 of these machines. about a month apart. First one is working nice and is quite fast. 2nd on came DOA, the SSD drive is dead. Newegg is sending me a return label for shipping so that is good. I will have to wait another week for the replacement so that is bad.
  • Pros: Fast, HUGE
  • Cons: DOA SSD Drive, HUGE

Not Thrilled

Brian C., Newegg
6 May 2013
  • Summary: My last acer aspire was a tank this newer one seems less durable then the old one.
  • Pros: It has a good feature set
  • Cons: Keyboard stopped working after owning it for 8 months. Not thrilled that I have to ship it to acer at my cost, or that they want to format my drive to replace a defective keyboard.
