Great Computer but Horrible Operating System

Ldog, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: I was talked into this computer and Windows 8. I needed a new computer for work/business and wanted something light that I could travel with. I got the computer and I've really nothing bad to say about ACER but holy cow Windows 8 is simply not an option for anything close to business. I acknowledge that I am no computer guy at all, I just use them.

If you don't need wireless, this may be the laptop for you

jrose@att.com, Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: If, in the year 2013, you expect a brand-new laptop to hold a wireless signal for longer than several minutes at a time, do NOT buy this laptop. I can't even download the latest drivers, since it drops the connection before it completes. I have two other laptops, an iPad, two smart phones and an internet TV that somehow don't have a problem with the signal my home router broadcasts.

Keyboard defective

  • Summary: Right out of the box, half the keyboard keys didn't work. I consider it lucky this happened soon enough for me to box it up and send it back without the warranty hassle.

  • Summary: I took this laptop back because the Walmart ad said it was Windows 7 and that is what I needed for work. When I got the machine it was Windows 8. Walmart needs to update their website. I decided to simply go to the Toshiba website and buy direct.

  • Summary: 1st return - it crashed 2nd return - corrupt operating system. it was returned 10 days later with no operating system attempted to repair online (3 hours) crashed again returned again for 3rd time and is now on its way back. Owned for 100 days and company had for 40 days. Company policy is only to repair. If this was a car, I would have a new one in my driveway. I have had to buy another computer because Acer is constantly gone.

Disappointing

afhealy, Amazon
15 February 2013
  • Summary: Against the advice of friends, I bought the Acer Aspire after reading PCMag and other reviews suggesting it as a good replacement for a PC. The laptop arrived, looked ok, powered up but the screen was black. Spent quite some time trying to figure out what went wrong. Was told that it was most likely a failure in the mainframe, battery or power cord - all of which would need to be replaced.
