5 out of 5 eggsAcer Purchase

Pros: A great machine that is well built and is very stable and reliable, especially since it is a "Family" user computer

Cons: It would have been great if it had come with additional internal hard drive storage.

Other Thoughts: I'd buy another tomorrow if it was the same price and came with a Windows 7 product. Otherwise, you can't go wrong with this unit!!!

Cons: We'll see later on.

Other Thoughts: This is the first acer product that I bought and now acer's on my buying list.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent buy

Pros: I must admit I've never contemplated buying an Acer computer. Working in the tech field for decades I'm very familiar with Acer and never heard bad things, I'm just a Dell fan.

However when looking for a Windows 7 preloaded system, this computer stood out. So I figured I would give it a shot and I'm glad I did. I've had the computer up and running for awhile now and it's been solid. Loaded up all my personal stuff, no issues. This computer is very fast and truthfully quieter then any Dell I've owned.

Acer used quality internal components and it's a nice looking tower. I don't anticipate adding hardware but there is room to grow. The motherboard has 4 memory slots and having HDMI on the motherboard is a nice addition. Also being able to have dual monitors, using only motherboard video is a great option. 12 - USB2 ports and 2 - USB3 ports, more then I would ever use.

Created the restore and driver disks without issue.

Cons: While I gave this computer a solid five stars, there are a couple things to mention. Acer went cheap on the keyboard and mouse. Not a big deal as these are inexpwnsive things to buy but unfortunate that they choose to save a few bucks on the two things a person uses daily.

I'm pretty spoiled using Dell and IBM/Lenovo websites on a daily basis. Acer's support website leaves alot to be desired in comparison for self help with configurations, drivers etc. Time will tell how that plays into the Acer experience.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a solid well priced Windows 7 computer, look no further. The Intel motherboard with the core i3 processor is awesome. Haven't confirmed but I believe it's also upgradeable to the i7, should it need a boost down the road.

Acer has been around for years and having used their products in my work world, I have no complaints with the company. I would have no hesitation recommending this product.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Customer Service Bad Computer Stay away!

Pros: It has no pros, its all Cons, very bad memory and bad customer support

Cons: Unit Failed memory after 2 days from arrival, and because I installed all my development software then was hard on me to try replacing it, so i tried to to ask ACER to send me replacement for 2 sticks fails of 3, the customer support took the SNID number and he says he will ship a replacement and that is about it, he never mentioned that i have to ship the defective one, and he never provide and return address for the bad parts, after waiting 2 weeks i find out that i have to send the defective and it because almost 3 weeks and he never mention or provide any such info, so i throw them away last week, now i can not get any replacement at all. very bad customer service, i will never buy any Acer product any more, be aware, you will have a big problem if the unit has any defective even its covered under MLW

5 out of 5 eggsgreat deal

Pros: Good construction, extra memory slot open in a new box (which seems to be rare these days), Win7, quiet and fast. Plenty of horsepower to run multiple and fairly intensive apps at the same time.

Cons: I'm used to a traditional keyboard but this one is more like a laptop with a lot of the keys that are usually separated by some space all jammed together. No big deal considering the price I paid and the cost of a better keyboard.

Other Thoughts: I was amazed at how quickly I was able to get this machine out of the box and up and running. I like that it has Win7 with the $15 upgrade to Win8 after all the crash test dummy customers of Bill Gates are done doing his bug testing for him! This machine handles multiple, fairly highly intensive, applications running at the same time. I'm a ham radio operator and do a lot of digital radio communications and it's great to be able to do that at the same time that I am running a video conference.

5 out of 5 eggsFast desktop computer for the price! Great quality!

Pros: Runs fast! I was pleasantly surprised! Even though it has no graphics card i'm impressed with the performance. Full screen HD runs great with no stuttering. The machine is very quiet (especially compared to the old desktop I replaced). It has TONS of USB ports. NO BLOATWARE! I love this. Very few things I had to uninstall (McAfee Virus being the main one). I like the looks of the computer (glossy black). Might attract dust but it's hiding under the desk. Knowing that I can upgrade this is great (PCI graphics card). The price was cheap! Try to find an intel core I3 with 6gb ram and 1TB hard drive for under 500 anywhere else. WINDOWS 7! Not packaged with 8 so I enjoy that!

Cons: Integrated graphics (it was under 500 bucks so can't expect high level graphics card).

Other Thoughts: It's nice to work in the quiet. This computer is already serving me well. I use it as a work computer and it can do everything I throw at it. It's a great little machine. You can't go wrong for under 500!
