Pros: Basic Specs are nice. i7 and the graphics are good. The price was right.
Cons: Others have talked about how fast the rubber bumpers fall off the bottom. They literally fell off as I took it out of the package. I checked and there was glue but it looked like it had already fallen off and had hair and stuff stuck to it and then was put back in so when I pulled it out it fell off. That is not new condition.
The crazy thing is that there are not screws under them, so you would just expect a really good adhesive. Maybe Acer would like to send me replacements to customers with this issue or start including replacements with the laptop, the way Samsung includes new tips for the stylus with their Galaxy Note Phone series.
Bloatware! Just soooo much bloatware.
The hard drive is a platter. There is only space for one drive so, it makes sense to use a large drive but the slowness is unacceptable. As many others have, I am cloning to SSD. That isn't the largest issue and it seems that does keep the price down.
That brings me to the next issue, you literally have to take every screw out of the bottom in order to open the case. The keyboard comes up and off instead of the bottom piece coming off, which is unusual. I have not found a video that actually looks like the model I got.
Other Thoughts: Acer should totally sell the base model of laptops and then provide accessories separately. I would but a back-lit keyboard at this point because it would be easy to put on. Maybe they do. I will check this before I assemble again because I know that the companies troll these reviews. (Like a fisherman, not a bridge troll)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Minecraft Bundle Foam Diamond Sword & Pickaxe
Pros: Apparently this is an item from a video game. Kind of cool.
Cons: The resolution on the pictures of this item are so poor I cannot tell what the quality of the product is. I still gave it 5 stars because it isn't the products fault, but the problem is that even in person the resolution is very poor. I'm not sure what is going on here but apparently, if you run into some poor resolution blocks you can smash them with this item.
I have friends who have a whole lot of these and they offered to share so I decided not to buy this.
I've heard that you need this item to ultimately train a horse. Can anyone verify that?
Other Thoughts: I hope that someone finds what I have said useful. Also, when I was a kid, I would not have been bothered by this low resolution.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BIOSTAR A960G+ AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Cheap... maybe too cheap.
Cons: Looks like more of a board than it is. When I was shopping for my next mother board I had a few things I was looking for. I wanted on-board video as well as the 9-series chip set. When I saw this board I thought I had found that. The fact that it says 960 in the name of the board. It was also the right price. I did look at what chips it could use and the FX series was there as well.
After I got the board though I found out that it may not work with the new FX series chips because they actually require a 9 series chip set. The board worked with all the FX chips that existed when it came out but since then new FX chips have come out that it does not support.
It is hard to say that it is the boards fault or Biostar's fault but I am writing this so that they can see why people hate this board. I would be I am not the only one who purchased to quickly thinking that it would work with all the FX chips.
Other Thoughts: When I was doing my searches this was one of only two boards that came up. There don't seem to be any 9series boards with on board video.
I know that most gamers are the ones buying super fast chips and they like video cards but I want to put this in a small local server capacity and I just wanted a fast chip set and processor so that it doesn't get bogged down. Video quality is a secondary consideration and I wish there was something out there like what I am looking for.
