Acer Laptop Aspire E5-421G-88JF AMD A-Series A8-6410 (2.00GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD AMD Radeon R5 M240 14.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Got this in one day from newegg, great price. Discrete graphics, 1 tb hdd, quad core, with 8gb ram under 500. Looks nice, bright display, fast booting. This little laptop is quite impressive for the price tag so far. I have been able to play wow on fair/good at 30-70 fps, and other games like Heroes of the Storm flawlessly on medium or high.

Cons: A bit annoying to get the switchable graphics to agree with everything. A lot of preinstalled bloat, which I will have to deal with soon.

Other Thoughts: I like this little laptop so far, and I am considering changing out the hdd for an ssd and maxing the memory at 16gb. I suggest getting the latest amd driver if you want to play games as well, My fps in games went from very shaky to solid and higher with just a driver change so far, still on the lower side but for this price I cant actually complain about it.

Rosewill RNX-N300X IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE 802.11n Draft 2.0 (PCI Interface) Wireless Adapter (2T3R) Up to 300Mbps Wireless Download Data Rates 64/128-Bit WEP, WPA PSK and WPA2 PSK (TKIP and AES)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Similar speed to wired connection for me, connects fast, solid connection

Cons: Seems to be quite sensitive to case placement, heat and other factors can cause it to drop network repeatedly.

Other Thoughts: Im writing this to recant the previous negative. I decided to move this card in my case to my very bottom pci slot and my network issues for the time being have ceased. So if you own this and have issues look at the proximity of this card to your graphics card or other hot hardware inside your case.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Bought this three months ago. Spectacular speeds, solid, easy install.

Cons: In the last month has begun to drop connection. I thought it was due to some of the games I played as they had previous bugs that would cause wireless to drop. Now it does it randomly with or without a game running.

Other Thoughts: I just had to re-install the driver for this, off the disc as the one on the site would not work, the windows provided would not work. I also had to physically relocate the card, this may or may not be the cards fault. I will give it a try before buying a new/different brand though.
