This review is from: Laptop keyboard for Acer Aspire V7-582P NK.I1717.0C8 US layout Black with backlit
Pros: Drop in replacement for busted keyboard.
Cons: Original keyboard was lit blue, this one is lit red, I did not see any identifier of the backlight color in the description (assumed all of them were blue). Now trying to check the BIOS to find out if this is configurable.
Other Thoughts: Installing this keyboard can be a pain, but it is because of the design of the laptop. There are many plastic tags that are actually melted in place in order to hold the keyboard in. I could not figure out any way to remove the old keyboard except by snapping off these plastic connectors.
In replacing the keyboard, I had to use a soldering iron to "re-melt" the tabs for the keyboard to sit at the correct height in the laptop chassis.
Pros: plug and play, USB
Cons: easy to lose
Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these 3 years ago. Used them about 3 times between then and now to send faxes. Need to send a fax today and I can not find the things. I KNOW I will find at least one as soon as I order a replacement.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, quiet, long lasting battery, Windows 8.1 is not that hard to get used to, excellent screen.
Purchased for under $600.00 so my other review needs to consider this fact. I tried to update the original review, but could not find a function for it.
Cons: Touchpad is sensitive, price has increased dramatically since my original review. Fear of refurbished unit caused me to purchase a 1 year NewEgg warranty.
Other Thoughts: I've seen this model of laptop advertised on the Acer website for more than $1400.00, so the current price still seems like a good deal. However, I purchased my laptop for less than $600.00, and the price is much higher now.READ FULL REVIEW
