Pros: Very light weight design in a slick package. It's half tablet, half laptop with a physical keyboard and wireless mouse. The touch screen is fantastic.
This is the future of ultra-books and it's here now.
Every Acer I've purchased has been solid, this looks to be no different despite its fancy design aspirations.
This was bought for a travelling executive who doesn't do much more than read email and browse the web, but needed a real Windows laptop just in case he needed to do some real work.
This device takes the best of both formats and it absolutely kills. I recommend this as a lightweight, travelling computer without reservations.
Cons: Windows 8.
Costs three times as much as a cheap laptop that will do everything this machine will do, albeit with far less style points and twice the weight.
Other Thoughts: Despise Windows 8 on a desktop computer all you want (I do too) but on this it works.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Decent features at a pretty good price. Fits in nicely as a fax machine with some capability as a backup copier/printer.
Cons: The unit I got was defective. It's had problem handling paper from the first day. I had to constantly fiddle with it so that it would print. Incoming faxes got lost because the printer held it waiting for someone to fill the already filled paper tray - then it got powered off and dumped the faxes in memory.
Now it has a broken sensor inside that has convinced the unit there is a paper jam inside of it. It has stopped printing completely.
I called Brother tech support highly skeptical that it would get anything accomplished. I got a very polite, well spoken technician after answering through 60-90 seconds of automated menus.
She walked me through about 10 minutes of scripted steps -despite my assurances that I'd already tried everything she was instructing me to do. After jumping through all the hoops, she conceded and checked the warranty.
Brother is mailing me a refurbished unit to replace the defective one I got. Annoying, but Brother did make this right.
Other Thoughts: The unit was broken. Their tech support wasn't efficient, but it did get the job done at the end of the day.
I'm a big fan of Brother for their features to price ratio, but previously I've always thought of their products as toasters. Toss em when they break.
Their tech support actually earned kudos today for performing to acceptable standards. Apparently they've made progress improving what had previously been a complete waste of time when calling Brother tech support.
Pros: solid, reliable, heavy duty stand with height, swivel and tilt, built in speakers.
I bought 20 of these and haven't had a problem with a single one. The stands are so good I'm recycling them onto other monitors after mounting these onto Planar dual screen stands.
Cons: Um, I dunno. The audio in jack is colored blue and doesn't match the light green cable that comes with the monitor?
Other Thoughts: Buy these in large quantities with zero regretsREAD FULL REVIEW
