4 out of 5 eggstemperamental, but worth it

Pros: nice wide keyboard and keys. number pad. great graphics capability. nice large hard drive to store all my movies and games. slim. the auto overclocking is a very nice addition. relatively low power draw. dual display, built in webcam and mic that work pretty dam good. love the texture and the color(why i went with this one and not some of the other acer models of comparable specs)

Cons: overheats freakishly when playing TDU2, FO:NV, so hot it has burned me in the past. brightness function buttons lock up frequently when removing power and then closing lid, left side of the board under escape button sags slightly(i suspect due to overheating). had some issues with net adapter in the beginning, but also had problems with dsl at the time. only 3 usb ports. volume is not very loud at max, goes great with a music bullet though. big thing that urks me is the power button is in just the right spot where if i grab it with my primary hand (left hand) it is quite often in the way and shuts the computer down. memory card reader doesnt work with all types of sd's

Other Thoughts: dropped it twice, once from a height of 3 feet onto solid rock, once from 4 feet up onto a sparsely carpeted floor, cracked the exhaust grate and scratched the cover, but still runs strong. this was my first laptop ever, after swearing to never own one. this baby changed my mind, and now i wont go back to desktop ever again. it does everything i want it to do, from gaming to streaming, torrenting to browsing. i pretty much never go anywhere without it.

gave it 4 eggs because most of the cons are minor in my opinion. would rate at 3.5 though. still think it was well worth what i paid to replace my aging self-built desktop.

5 out of 5 eggsVery great

Pros: IF YOU ARE LOOKING a machine that can play games and do work on the go

5 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop

Pros: Great speed, memory, HDD space, video, and audio. Installed Linuxmint and it works great. All works out of box ( webcam, mic, speakers). Reasonable price.

Cons: Came installed with MS Windows :(.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace my slower acer netbook. I haven't found any issues running Linuxmint. Skype works great ( the netbook had mic issues). Will be trying fedora Linux soon.

5 out of 5 eggsAcer Aspire 5560

Pros: Decent Graphics card, Nice quad Core, Very nice laptop for the price

Cons: not many, screen feels a little flimsy but thats minor. had a minor software issue right out of the box but got that taken care of pretty painlessly.

Other Thoughts: very nice laptop for the price. bought the max amount of ram and this laptop handles all the games i throw at it.

1 out of 5 eggsBad ventilation; wireless adapter overheats

Pros: somewhat inexpensive. has decent graphics adapter.
Sending your laptop to Acer's repair place is free. You don't even have to pay shipping.

Cons: Acer really should issue a recall on this device.

The wireless adapter stops working, whenever I use the computer for a few hours. The adapter overheats, and then the driver shuts the adapter down to keep it from burning itself.

I've tried to get this problem fixed twice, by sending it to Acer's repair place. They failed to reproduce the problem (because they didn't use the laptop like I do, so it didn't warm up, so it never overheated for them).

I am currently dealing with this problem by setting the adapter's output power to 50% of its maximum wattage (using the driver software features), thereby keeping the adapter from overheating. This is an unacceptable solution, and because it decreases my Wifi range and throughput.

SO WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?
I think the real problem is that this device has a design flaw that lets the laptop overheat, but, only the wireless adapter overheats, because it is not designed to withstand the same amount of heat as the graphics adapter and CPU.

Other Thoughts: Sending your laptop to Acer's repair place is free. You don't even have to pay shipping, but if they can't diagnose the problem correctly, you'll quickly find yourself sending your device to them over and over, while never getting it fixed.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: This laptop is awesome.. It will do everything you want it to.. I have played World of Warcraft on it for 6 hrs straight and it runs like a dream.. As long as you have a good utility program to get rid of unwanted stuff this computer runs like a pro.. I have no issues with it at all... Going to purchase 2 more for xmas presents..

Cons: Only 1 con and not really because I don't like mouse pads anyway.. mouse pad isn't all that great so you will need a mouse if your going to game on it.. Otherwise mouse pad is fine..

2 out of 5 eggsjust OK

Pros: nice looking. not expensive.

Cons: beep-beep sound appeared within a couple of weeks after getting this laptop. Now it's getting worse. Anyone has any suggestions on what the problem might be and how to fix it?

Bad touch pad, cursor jumps unexpectedly.

2 out of 5 eggsMy first and last Acer laptop

Pros: Low price. Beautiful design. Easy to set up for me. Speed OK.

Cons: Low battery life like some already posted. When it's new a 100% charged last less than 3 hours. Now after only 5 months, the battery last around 1 hour. I have to use it as a desktop now with the power cord plug in most of the time.
I did have the problem of web site went back and forth by itself like others posted but not much. The problem that I'm worried the most is it automatically shut off by itself. First it happened when I used the keypad so I thought because its keypad is so sensitive. But since then I used the external mouse and it happened again 2 times one time when I pick the laptop up, the other time when I touched the keypad. Not sure it is the hardware or software problem since it happened only 3, 4 times so I have not had time to troubleshoot the problem yet.

Other Thoughts: Other than the cons I mentioned so far the laptop works OK. This is my first laptop ever that I bought (I'd been using some at work before I bought this) but probably my last one with Acer.
