5 out of 5 eggsDefective DVD Drive

Pros: Excellent machine overall

Cons: Came with a defective dvd drive. Powers up but will not read or write. Sort of a pain in the neck to return the whole unit because of one defective part.

4 out of 5 eggsNIC Picking

Pros: Nice Deal, Good Processor, Graphics - Well....OK, Large HD. overall a sweet deal for what you get.

Cons: I took an egg off for the very reason of the memory. Who puts these systems together! 3 - 1 Gig sticks tells me its not Duel Channel and most likely not 800 either. More like single channel 667. Its got 4 slots, why they didn't put 2 matching pair of 1 gig sticks in 1 channel and 2 matching 512's in the other. Memory is not that pricey and seems they just slap in just any old thing to make it run.

Other Thoughts: For around 75 bucks, I'd pull these sticks out and put some desent G-Skill matched pairs in the 4 slots to run at Duel Channel 800. It would run alot smoother.

5 out of 5 eggsHigly Recommended

Pros: I love this machine. It's very fast and it's an amazing bang for your buck. I was expecting to hate windows vista based on all the reviews I've read, but it's really pretty good. Sure it's a little slower than xp but with this computer's specs it's not really a problem.

Cons: If you're into gaming at all, you really need to upgrade the video card. But I was pretty much expecting that when I bought it. Also the keyboard, mouse and speakers aren't too impressive, but I had a wireless keyboard and mouse I was using beforehand, and high end speakers as well. Some of the pre-loaded software will slow your performance down a bit, so I'd suggest removing whatever you don't plan on using.

Other Thoughts: I'm very pleased with this purchase. It's my second Acer computer, and I think they offer the best bang for your buck by far when compared to other companies. I'd highly recommend this computer.

4 out of 5 eggsGood value computer

Pros: A system with more than enough CPU power and RAM to run any business applications you might have.

Cons: Windows Vista is slower than XP. An XP system with these specifications would fly.

Included speakers aren't very good - they actually pick up a local radio station if I hold them at the right angle.

No Microsoft Office included - only a slightly old version of Works.

Other Thoughts: The first thing I would do when you get this is turn off the Vista Aero graphics to speed up the system. Then disable the pre-installed stuff you don't need. Basically a fair amount of tweaking will be needed to get it to XP-like speed, but don't despair when it runs slowly out of the box, it will run fine once you finish downloading all the Windows updates and cleaning up the stuff you don't need.

5 out of 5 eggsNot too shabby

Pros: For the general desktop uses, this computer runs great. I like how it is both fast and quiet. It works like a charm.

Cons: There have been no major issues for me yet. Though, the LEDs are bright, especially in a dark room. Hardware runs fine. I booted into Vista at first and there was a heavy load of bloatware, but some of it was integrated into the functionality of Vista. The hard drive would be better as two separate drives as 1 hard drive at 500GB is risky.

Other Thoughts: Right out of the box, I dropped an nVIDIA GeForce 7600GT, wiped the hard drive and installed Arch Linux. This is definitely a computer for running any Linux distro.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Sassified

Pros: This thing rocks right out of the box! Looks cool, runs pretty quiet, it's a solid box that you can easily drop a video card into for a nice boost (I know because I did it). As a big XP fan, I'm actually enjoying exploring Vista so far. I like the extra USB ports on top. I am still installing programs and transferring settings from the old box but no hiccups yet, knock on wood!

Cons: Not much from me so far -- the integrated graphics hurt the overall WEI (see below) and the included speakers are completely worthless. You can take or leave the keyboard and mouse. I would have preferred some more documentation included with the computer itself (mainboard), but I'm sure you can find the info online somewhere. The Acer bloatware has to go! I don't like how all four of the cardreader drives take up drive letters, but that's just me.

Other Thoughts: I installed a (not top of the line) XFS 8600GT video card and saw my Windows Experience Index jump from a 2.9 to a 5.2, so the integrated graphics are definitely the weakness with the box if you want to play higher end games. Better cards may yield better results, but the stock power supply is only 250 W. I paired this with a new 22" Samsung (thx Newegg) and I am blown away with the visuals. My wife couldn't believe what a piece of junk our old computer was until we got this one set up. As usual, delivery was super fast (2 days).

4 out of 5 eggsDecent bang for the buck

Pros: Everything works. Handy top panel. Bang for the buck for average home user who doesn't already have an OS handy to build a computer.

Good size hard drive let me create a new partition to dual boot Ubuntu Linux and find out it is much superior to any Windows product.

Cons: The multi-card reader is EXTREMELY SLOW. I have an external reader that plugs into the USB port on the same panel and it is much faster at data x-fer.

Vista is HORRENDOUS! If I had known how bad it was, I would have assembled a system from higher quality parts and ran Ubuntu Linux exclusively.

5 out of 5 eggsA real life saver

Pros: I live in africa and we have a real lion problem here. One day i woke up to find a dead lion on the floor of my room, and blood all over the case of my computer. If my computer haden't saved me I would be a goner right now.

Cons: Do not buy this computer if you have small children or pet lions around your computer area.

Other Thoughts: A good substitue to a firearm

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Deal

Pros: For the average Joe- It's ready out of the box. Awesome Acer Reliability. Shipping is CHEAP!
A steal. Quiet

Cons: To the novice builder it's not custom. However you can not buy the parts at this price.

Other Thoughts: I quit building computers because I get bored quickly and it's cheaper to buy values like this. I have owned 7 Acers back to back.
I have one purchased new P350 and it never needed repairs. The PS is silent and the hardware top quality. Not a dream machine- but respectable and a great value.
Other vendors charge $65-$90 shipping. Shipping is a great deal.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat System

Pros: I love this system. I bought it from another retailer in a bundle with an Acer 24" monitor. To say I love this setup would be an understatement.

Cons: The weak speakers that are included, and the typical Acer bloatware. I plugged in my own speakers, got rid of the bloatware and all cons disappeared.

Other Thoughts: Buy a new video card (I got an HIS 512 Radeon 2600 from Newegg) and you will have a system that can compete with the best of them.
