Acer Laptop Aspire E1-572-6870 Intel Core i5 4200U (1.60GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4400 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: If this machine didn't fail after only 2 months, I would be more willing to write down the pros.

Cons: It is absolutely ridiculous that these days a laptop cannot go more than 3 months without having some sort of critical error, I do not appreciate burning my hard earned money on a product that will die out only a few days later. This is Acer, a manufacturer that I used to believe was quite decent. I've used their laptops before, which is why I decided to purchase this one. Big mistake.

Other Thoughts: So I am on the Acer tech support website, filling out the request for a system repair. After spending a lot of time answering all their stupid questions, I get close to finishing. I take a simply break to take a picture of the problem so Acer has something to use as reference and what happens when I return? My request has "timed-out", meaning I had to go through the whole process again.

Seriously, a time-out period on a system repair page? Yeah, no. I'm not going through that bull again, I will keep my broken system and they can keep my money. I thought Acer was a decent company, not anymore. I will never purchase any product with the name Acer on it again, they can all go screw themselves. Way to not only make bad, piece of shoot products, but also also slap clients trying to do the right thing.

Xbox LIVE 12 Month Gold Membership Card

5 out of 5 eggs Great deal 07/20/2014

This review is from: Xbox LIVE 12 Month Gold Membership Card

Pros: I got this on a sale, $45 for a year. Very good deal, the code worked and immediately I was able to sign in and play with friends online.

Cons: None, cheap and it worked. What's there to complain about?

Other Thoughts: The price is the regular $60 now, maybe it will go down to $45 again some day. I'll be waiting for that, I don't mind paying the full price but it's always nice to get discounts.

5 out of 5 eggs MBAM Pro Lifetime 07/04/2014

This review is from: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro Lifetime - 1 PC

Pros: As an IT professional and network engineer, I have tried various different types and brands of anti-malware software whether it has been the basic free edition or the corporate editions. MSE, AVG, Avast, Avira, Norton, Kaspersky, ClamAV (for both Linux and Windows), Vipre and NOD32 are among the programs I have experience with. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, or MBAM for short, has definitely been one of the best.

I love AVG Free and always recommend it for anyone looking for a free anti-malware program for basic personal use, however I will recommend MBAM for anyone who is willing to pay for it. Compared to AVG Free, this version of MBAM has better features. The virus definitions update constantly, which is good as virus definitions are what "tells" the program exactly where to scan and what to look for when scanning for malware. They updates sometimes as much as three times a day, the scanning options are more varied, detailed, and precise and the scanning is very thorough.

I got this version of MBAM on sale for $20 each, a very good deal for something that is going to last me a very long time, I'm happy with this purchase.

Cons: While this version of MBAM is a "lifetime" edition, the operating system that I or anyone reading this uses is not, especially if it's from Microsoft. I believe this will last me for a lot of years, eventually though I may have purchase something else. No big deal.

Another "con" of mine was Windows 8, MBAM seemed to love Windows 7, no problems at all. It did not like Windows 8 and it hated 8.1 even more, re-installing it using compatibility mode worked for me. If anyone needs to re-install MBAM, make sure to download their clean-up utility and run it before trying to re-install.
