5 out of 5 eggsWoohoo?! Free Acer Parts?!

Pros: So I have new two new things from my last review:
1. I added 4 gigs of ram when I first bought the computer and it was fast but games such as CS source, Left For Dead, etc would have a small (1-3 second) video/sound freeze every once in a while. This was a small issue that I have dealt with until yesterday where I bought an Intel M-25 SSD and installed it. WOW! boot time went from 30 ish seconds to 10ish seconds and games run like butter! I suggest this upgrade to all!
2. Since I installed a new SSD in my main bay and its only 120 gigs I needed to order the extra HDD parts for the second bay from acer. Just got off the phone with them and NO CHARGE FOR THE PARTS! Idk if it is because i am so charismatic but she said I would receive the parts in 3-8 days and never asked me for credit card or anything... I pray they do not call me back and ask for it but as of now its free muwhahahahaha

Cons: having to install a new HDD because the 5400 RPM they send with this comp is just too slow to deal with...

Other Thoughts: :)

5 out of 5 eggs2nd Hard Drive Parts

Pros: I change my review to 5 stars. Acer sent the parts for the 2nd hard drive bay. They are:
HDD Door =42.PUM07.004
HDD Bracket=33.PUM07.003
HDD Dip Housing=PUM07.001
I called tier one Acer support and they have the parts. I haven't had any BSOD's. Runs stable and really cool. I have played Crysis, Bioshock, Dead Space, Amnesia-The Dark Descent and they played fine. Did not get hot, and no lockups or blue screens.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsRuns well

Pros: 0 bsods
0 problems with hardware or software
lighter than I expected
My first laptop, and I am very pleased.
graphics card makes wow playable on mostly high settings

Cons: speakers sound muffled to me
unable to install 2nd HD
battery life is about 1hr even with brightness all the way down

Other Thoughts: I have built many desktops, but decided to get a laptop after lugging my pc's to hotels while on vacation. (Bellhops sure look at you funny when you make them cart up a whole desktop computer)

Very good price for the specs of this machine. I am happy and will buy Acer again.

5 out of 5 eggs2nd hdd installation "kit"

Pros: ...

Cons: ...

Other Thoughts: I was directed to this page via a Google search while on my own quest for these very hdd parts, i have a Gateway ID79C but it shares the very same chassis as the Acer AS7745G, i ordered my parts through Gateway for $7.22 ea.

btw the correct part # for the 2nd hdd cover is 42.PUM07.004 NOT .005

I hope this info saves others from wasting hours on Google.

5 out of 5 eggsToo add to my earlier review

Pros: See below

Cons: See below

Other Thoughts: Since my review, I have received in the parts. The Dip Housing and HDD Bracket is correct. However, the door is INCORRECT. It is the same door that comes with the laptop already which obviously does not work. I talked to tech support again about this and they are sending me a different door, with a different part number. As soon as it comes in and I test it, I will put the info online. Also, please note that you must buy your own screws to screw in the hdd to the bracket. Acer said that they do not send screws and will not sell them to us because they do not have part numbers and said that it is up to us to purchase the screws on our own.

5 out of 5 eggs2nd HDD bay info

Pros: Yes, the 2nd drive bay is useable!!!

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: I just got off the phone with Acer tech support. In order to get these parts, you must call tech support and then ASK FOR LEVEL 2 (THIS IS THE ONLY WAY YOU WILL GET YOUR PARTS!!!). DON'T LET LEVEL 1 GIVE YOU THEIR PARTS PARTNER PHONE NUMBERS! They asked me to register my laptop then it took the guy about 10 minutes to do the research and he confirmed that the 2nd bay CAN BE USED - and there are 3 parts to order.

33.PUM07.003 - HDD Bracket - $7.22 USD
20.PUM07.001 - DIP Housing - $7.22 USD
42.PUM07.005 - Flat Door/Cover - $7.22 USD
it ended up costing $35.02 for the parts + tax&shipping.

I am SOOO stoked - I just got the shellshocker 120gb SSD today, so now I can use this slow 5400rpm drive for storage in the 2nd bay!!! Now I just need 8gb of faster RAM and I will be future proof for a while! woot!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop

Pros: FAST...5650 ATI card, 4 memory bays*, 2nd HDD**, very quiet, doesnt burn up super hot, BluRay works well

Cons: Cannot comment yet officially because I havent had time to run it to its fullest yet.

Other Thoughts: I had to return the laptop because it came with a bad screen (lines in the middle because it looked like my shipping guy used it as a football)

*Make sure to check your memory installed. When I opened mine up, they had installed the memory in Single Channel Mode!!! Wasn't a big deal for me since I was adding an additional 4GB (2x2GB) to it anyways.

**Yes it does support the 2nd HDD and to help spare you the countless hours on the phone with support, here are the 3 parts you will need to order in order to get the 2nd HDD to work:
33.PUM07.003 - HDD Bracket - $7.22 USD
20.PUM07.001 - DIP Housing - $7.22 USD
42.PUM07.005 - Flat Door/Cover - $7.22 USD

When calling into tech support, you must ask for level 2 support and must register your laptop to order the parts. I am ordering mine now so that I can get it to work by the time the second laptop comes in.

2 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasts...

Pros: Bought this for college/occasional gaming. The specs are definitely great for its price. Can't tell much about it at this point (see cons).

Cons: After reinstalled Windows 7 due to loads of bloatwares, I got BSOD when I was trying to start up MS Office '07. Next, the wireless card somehow couldn't pick up any signals, even after I disabled and re-enabled it, but my blackberry can pick up about half a dozen different hotspots in that same area. Basically, it failed three days after I received it.

Other Thoughts: Sent it back to newegg for replacement. One week later, no response. Contacted a rep, she said that I will have to wait about five to seven business days for my RMA to be processed. Seriously?

5 out of 5 eggsI don't have this computer, but...

Pros: I just wanted to tell all of you people that complained that there wasn't space in the second HDD bay for an extra hard drive that you will probably have to order a couple extra parts for it to be able to use it. I have the Acer 6930 from last year and I had to order parts from an Acer retailer in Canada in order to get the right bracket and cover for the hard drive slot. The normal cover doesn't have enough space for a hard drive even if you break the pieces off. Just to save you some time. I don't know the website you need to contact, but do some googling, and I'm sure you'll find it. Hope this helps.

Cons: :)

Other Thoughts: I am now running an 80 gig Intel SSD in my primary drive as a boot drive, and a 750 gig WD Blue in my secondary slot, and it is smoking fast. I also upgraded it to a Core 2 Duo T9600, since I just missed the new i5 and i7 updates, but it's still faster than a lot of i5s. I also changed the graphics to the HD 4650.....pretty sweet now.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Laptop Great Price!

Pros: CoreI7 Processor, 17.3 inch screen, Full size keyboard, Blu-Ray. Dolby sound. DVI port.

System doesn't get hot.

Cons: No second HDD, 5400rpm stock HDD. (I was aware of both these before I purchased this laptop)

[Minor] no latch to keep screen closed. Have to make your own recovery disks

Other Thoughts: I ordered this laptop from newegg on thursday 10/7 around lunch with the standard 3day shipping thru UPS. To my delight it arrived friday 10/8 at noon! I had heard newegg was good, was not disappointed.

I spent alot of time looking into this laptop so I knew about the 2nd HDD bay not being usable and the stock HD being only 5400rpm so i didnt take of a star. If i hadn't known I would have docked a star.

I created my recovery discs when I first booted up and replaced the HD with 7200rpm WD HDD. Then re-installed the OS. The process went smoothly.

I read the comments on how cool this system runs and would like to confirm that point. The vent obviously blows out warm air when gaming for long periods, but not hot (def not hot enough to melt plugs or wires like other Laptops i was reading about)

There was a review about the screen not having a wide enough viewing angle and I don't see that, the screen looks awesome.

I would and have recommended this Laptop to others, WELL WO
