I had never really heard of Acer brand. We were always DELL people. After talking to college Computer engineers who were all staunch supporters of Acer, we were convinced. So now we have been proud Acer owners for 7 months........and we have 3. We are very happy with the
Acer. It is a very reliable computer for all home business needs. This webcam is above average. It is clear and in HD. We are very happy Acer owners and will be for the unforseen future!
I have had 2 of the 17 inch Acer Aspires. The first one was a gift and I must admit I was skepticle never owning anything Acer. The first one I had for three years and lighting hit and we had a power surge that wiped out one wall in the house and the motherboard was fried. I'm using the 2nd one as we speak to write this review. 1 1/2 years and still going strong. Great for the value. I'm looking to purchase 7 laptops for my office and I'm going with this computer. Great value. I can't speak on customer service because I never had to use them.
great option! I am thinking of buying 2 more, great price, great speed....and great monitor!!! I bought it last year (oct 2010 - nov 2011 and going) and still in great shape, hasn't given me any problems at all, it has a great feature; that in case you download something that slows your pc, (i.e. an application), you can reload the latest version that worked fine before you made changes, so with this you won't regret you made a mistake downloading something. GIVE BRANDS A CHANCE, THERE IS ALWAYS WARRANTY....
I've been working on this computer all week. This is what I've observed so far: It runs cool. I will reevaluate when the Florida summer returns. It is very lightweight. It is faster than lightning compared to my old computer (Toshiba with Vista and Intel Pentium). The screen is very clear and easy to read. The plastic is textured--no fingerprints! Touchpad makes your fingers glide. It 3 USB ports. Mic and earphones are on the right side. I usually plug in speakers. With my Toshiba it was in the front, and it poked me when I used it on my lap. When I tried to download some programs (Java, etc) I needed to return Internet Explorer to the default parameters. For some reason it had been changed. I have yet to get up to speed on the wonders of Windows 7. I've had trouble loading my Printer software. I understand a visit to HP to try to download something is in order. I own an Acer Netbook also, and the keyboard has inadvertently been drenched twice, and it still works perfectly. (Don't try this if you can help it!) So far I'm very satisfied with this computer. I did buy the service pack. I hope I never have to use it. One warning: When I bought this computer, my credit card was frozen for 6 days because of fraud problems at Walmart.
I bought this Acer laptop for my wife onsale for $399. It's a great machine. Very fast with dual core processor. Big screen (17.5") Full size keyboard. 500 GB SATA Harddrive. 4 GB of RAM. Very easy to set up and found my wireless network in seconds. The only con I can think of is the DVD/CD tray. It's a bit flimsy. You have to be very careful with it. It could break easily if handled roughly. Other than that, an excellent machine.
I am no stranger to Acer, but I have to admit I strayed because I was curious about the dell, well lets just say the grass isnt always greener on the other side and I returned the dell and purchased another Acer. I will never stray again. I will always be a faithful Acer user
I had never owned a laptop before so shopping for one was a bit difficult..I found this one on the Walmart online store. It had everything I thought I would need! I decided on the bigger screen so I wouldn't have to strain my eyes and I am happy I did. I haven't had this computer long but I love it! It is perfect for what I need it for...
I would be cautious about this brand. I bought an Acer a year ago and it just stopped working. I called Acer and they will not fix the problem. My only option now is to purchase another computer. I will spend a little more and buy a better more reliable brand.
I highly recommend this product. My 14yo goddaughter needed a computer so that she could do her classwork. It definitely exceeded our expectations. She uses a lot of multi-media and this laptop has more than enough memory and ram speed to accommodate that. I also bought it at a good price during Christmas time. I know someone who bought the same type of laptop for $300 more elsewhere.
Fast, Large screen size is a bonus, excellent value
So far this products works as advertised and the price was best found.
I used to have alot of faith in Acer. I bought a model similar to this one. Worked great till the end started to come
apart. Called customer service and they were great. Other companies do not cover this kind of damage under warranty. I was not told the shipping is covered by them. I shipped it on my dime. I got the computer back. It did not work correctly. The mouse was bad. It is called a wondering mouse, when you are typing it goes wherever the courser is at, it also highlights everthing. I called Acer and sent it in. It still has the problem with an addition, ti does not save any cookies. This means that no password or history is saved ever. I called Acer and they recommend to restore to original settings. So no I do not recommend this brand anymore.
Bought 12/15 hard drive failed 1/10. Luckily returns were extended for Christmas and was able to get refund from Walmart. If not, would have had to mail to TX and let them fix and return. Did not want it fixed and returned. Less than 30 days and had major system failure. Lost all info and software on it. Will not buy another Acer product.
I had this computer 6 days and the motherboard went out. I was very disappointed and took it back and got a HP
Had been reviewing other laptops but found this one to be the best price for everything that it offered. I am very pleased with this purchase.
Was looking for a cheap but good laptop to replace the one that my two year old tried to use as a trampoline. This laptop has a huge screen and has every feature that I need for my personal use. So far, I'm very impressed!!
I am very happy with the purchase of my acer lap top
The computer I purchased meets my needs in every way. The ship to store option was exceedingly convenient, and the product arrived in a timely matter.
This laptop has everything I wanted in the price range I needed. It arrived in a timely manner and has a big, bright screen. Very fast processor also. I am really satisfied with this laptop so far.
Value for price outstanding, has all functions and memory capabilities of expensive laptop I use for business. Ease of installation. Need to get used to keyboard with number pad on right side if you are used to normal laptop keyboard. A good feature if you need to use numbers a lot.
Walmart shopping experience good. Free shipping- delivered in less than 5 days
