2 out of 5 eggsNot sure if defective or I'm just seriously spoiled..

Pros: Construction seems solid. Elegant look.

Cons: SLOOOOOOOW. I purchased this for use at a client's office (word processing and internet browsing). Out of the box it is ridiculously slow. After setup and booting into windows my first task was to install chrome. It took 2 minutes from the time I clicked internet explorer for the window to load and be ready for input. It took several minutes more to actually navigate to the page and start the download (my internet connection is fine, it was just the laptop loading). When I tried to update windows, the machine froze 2/3 of the way through installing updates, I gave it 4 hours just to be sure..

Maybe I'm spoiled from using a workhorse desktop and I'm out of touch with capabilities of economy machines, but the freezing seems to suggest a defect.

Other Thoughts: I'm hoping that this sluggishness is just due to 1st time use/not having anything cached, and that finishing updates and optimization will resolve some of the issues. Otherwise I'll be returning this machine.

1 out of 5 eggsSLOW

Pros: Cheap, but that is the only pro.

Cons: Bumped it up to 8GB of ram and it is still sluggish, forget an SSD it will only run at standard drive speed and the touchpad is absolutely horrible. With a mouse you may get by but doesn't that defeat the whole laptop thing.

Other Thoughts: I have bought Acer for years but for the past 2 I have been disappointed more than happy.

2 out of 5 eggsDoes your motherboard need to be replaced?

Pros: Only 2 weeks time for shipping, replacing motherboard,
and returning laptop to me. Acer paid for all of it
(But, they recommended insuring the shipment, which
customer has to pay).

Cons: Motherboard had to be replaced.

Other Thoughts: How to test for the problem: Make sure clock is set
accurately; unplug AC power; remove battery; wait for
around 10 minutes or more; reconnect power; and check if
clock is off. If clock if off, you have a problem
and in my case it was not just the CMOS/coin battery,
the motherboard needed to be replaced.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat value

Pros: Does what it should for the specs you agreed to purchase. Those who complain about performance should buy an I-7 laptop. It is about 30% faster than my four year old Acer 17" Core-2 Duo with 4GB. Immediately cloned a SSD drive and works just great. You get what you pay for and it compresses files and edits video with ease. Almost no Windows 7 new machines left. Get one while you can!!!!

Cons: Only thing I can think of is only 3 total USB ports. My four year old had more.

2 out of 5 eggsACER limits SATA device speeds to half their potential

Pros: Except for ACER's SATA support, the laptop works well.

Cons: After further assessment, I'm dropping 1 egg because the
laptop falls below the average entry level laptop in the
area of SATA speed "potential". You will only be impacted
by this short coming if you replace the provided hard drive
with a SSD. But just like adding memory, replacing a
hard drive with a SSD has become common place to improve
performance and extending the life of a laptop.

ACER technical support says they provide no way to
override this limitation (even though the included
Intel HM77 southbridge supports the higher speed).

ACER, please explain why you did this.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid machine

Pros: Nice screen, runs cool, comfortable touch to the keys, WIN 7!!!, 17' screen, has 2 slots for ram, pop another 4 gig stick in and you're good to go.

Cons: Very poor speakers, no backlight keyboard, touchpad is a little jumpy

Other Thoughts: For the price range, you just cannot beat a 17" screen that runs win 7.

3 out of 5 eggsProblem after replacing hard drive with SSD

Pros: I only have one notable disappointment with it.

Cons: After replacing hard drive with SSD problem of
keyboard key pressed without actually pressing key.
Chkdsk trying to run at boot gets immediately cancelled
because it allows abort by pressing any key.
Circumvention is chkntfs /t:0
Circumvention does not work for other software that
allows abort at boot.
ACER technical support first suggested fix of draining power did not help.
Same problem occurs using different manufacturer SSD.
So, problem must be in ACER provided laptop parts "when SSD used instead of hard drive".

ACER technical support second level says they will not help fix it
because laptop came with hard drive, not SSD.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Snappy, bright beautiful screen, buttons aren't part of the touch pad, Windows 7, inexpensive.

Cons: SATA3 instead of SATA6.

Other Thoughts: Not worth knocking an egg off, but I was disappointed when I cloned the drive to a Samsung SSD and the Samsung utility informed me I wasn't getting full speed from the drive because it was running on a SATA3 interface. Realistically the machine still runs great, looks great and hopefully will last. Also very nice having buttons not integrated into the touch pad (personal preference).
