Massive HDD Failure

Pros: Netbook is much faster than the model I was replacing. Was fast and powerful enough to play a few older games like Morrowind or low tech games like Terraria without problem. Plenty of space for word projects, images and a few video files.

Cons: Started having problems first with it's power cable then with it's HDD about a year into use. Now I'm at the two year mark facing a massive hdd failure.

Other Thoughts: It was a good netbook while it lasted disappointed that the netbook I was replacing with this one, still fires up and works after being on the shelf for two years, while this one is in a constant bsod hell. Though two years is about how long I figured the hdd would likely last to begin with it's still a little disappointing.

temperamental, but worth it

Pros: nice wide keyboard and keys. number pad. great graphics capability. nice large hard drive to store all my movies and games. slim. the auto overclocking is a very nice addition. relatively low power draw. dual display, built in webcam and mic that work pretty dam good. love the texture and the color(why i went with this one and not some of the other acer models of comparable specs)

Cons: overheats freakishly when playing TDU2, FO:NV, so hot it has burned me in the past. brightness function buttons lock up frequently when removing power and then closing lid, left side of the board under escape button sags slightly(i suspect due to overheating). had some issues with net adapter in the beginning, but also had problems with dsl at the time. only 3 usb ports. volume is not very loud at max, goes great with a music bullet though. big thing that urks me is the power button is in just the right spot where if i grab it with my primary hand (left hand) it is quite often in the way and shuts the computer down. memory card reader doesnt work with all types of sd's

Other Thoughts: dropped it twice, once from a height of 3 feet onto solid rock, once from 4 feet up onto a sparsely carpeted floor, cracked the exhaust grate and scratched the cover, but still runs strong. this was my first laptop ever, after swearing to never own one. this baby changed my mind, and now i wont go back to desktop ever again. it does everything i want it to do, from gaming to streaming, torrenting to browsing. i pretty much never go anywhere without it.

gave it 4 eggs because most of the cons are minor in my opinion. would rate at 3.5 though. still think it was well worth what i paid to replace my aging self-built desktop.

Great laptop

Pros: Great speed, memory, HDD space, video, and audio. Installed Linuxmint and it works great. All works out of box ( webcam, mic, speakers). Reasonable price.

Cons: Came installed with MS Windows :(.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace my slower acer netbook. I haven't found any issues running Linuxmint. Skype works great ( the netbook had mic issues). Will be trying fedora Linux soon.

Bad ventilation; wireless adapter overheats

Pros: somewhat inexpensive. has decent graphics adapter.
Sending your laptop to Acer's repair place is free. You don't even have to pay shipping.

Cons: Acer really should issue a recall on this device.

The wireless adapter stops working, whenever I use the computer for a few hours. The adapter overheats, and then the driver shuts the adapter down to keep it from burning itself.

I've tried to get this problem fixed twice, by sending it to Acer's repair place. They failed to reproduce the problem (because they didn't use the laptop like I do, so it didn't warm up, so it never overheated for them).

I am currently dealing with this problem by setting the adapter's output power to 50% of its maximum wattage (using the driver software features), thereby keeping the adapter from overheating. This is an unacceptable solution, and because it decreases my Wifi range and throughput.

SO WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?
I think the real problem is that this device has a design flaw that lets the laptop overheat, but, only the wireless adapter overheats, because it is not designed to withstand the same amount of heat as the graphics adapter and CPU.

Other Thoughts: Sending your laptop to Acer's repair place is free. You don't even have to pay shipping, but if they can't diagnose the problem correctly, you'll quickly find yourself sending your device to them over and over, while never getting it fixed.
