For a First Time Computer, Great

Pros: I got this on a sale way back when.
To be honest, it served its purpose well.
It could play modded Skyrim decent enough, Elite: Dangerous easily enough, and I could record CS:GO at a reliable 30fps 720p.
But it was never the best at multitasking.
It couldn't render videos, switch quickly between apps, and after its years of service, takes forever to download things or start up Microsoft.
I'll keep it, and use it for work, while I begin on building my new Ryzen 1700.

It's a great computer, so long as you know what to expect.

Cons: ^

Other Thoughts: Would recommend, just like my friend once recommended to me-

It was alright, bought this in 10/3/2014, so i've been using this pc almost 2 years

Pros: It is fine for normal activities, such as browsing and some mild gaming except for some games

Cons: This pc will crash on certain games, such as the tomb raider, black desert online, and Overwatch (Usually on Hanamura map), and the game bully on steam and hitman absolution. I don't know if I have a faulty laptop or what but this laptop just does not run on these games for long. I have over 80 different games that I play and am able to test on, but it is a real bummer when you can't play some of your favorites. It will run well on games such as GTA V, Shadow of Mordor, COD BO3, and advanced warfare, Far Cry 3, 4, and Primal and you'll get about 27-47 fps or so playing Rust as of 8/26/16 on low settings. But if you plan on ever playing the games I said in the beginning, do not buy this laptop. I kinda regret it, and will have to shell out more money for my next laptop. I have reverted and updated my graphics drivers, asked blizzard for support and followed their directions, and factory resetted the laptop, nothing works. I have then taken it apart and cleaned the fan, and made sure nothing was wrong or cracked somehow, and download overclocking software on steam and lowered the clocking many times to different levels(not too familiar though), and uninstalled and reinstalled many different programs such as Skype and etc. Went to device manager and updated everything there, and tried to update the intel drivers as well. This laptop was a disappointment overall, since I still play Overwatch, and have to get used to the crashing.

Awesome little laptop!!!

Pros: ZERO issues with wifi etc and NO lag like others are complaining about. Uninstall all the proprietary Acer software and it'll be 40% faster and none of that Acer junk is needed anyways. Also, swap the internal 5400 RPM 1TB Harddrive for an SSD and it'll be faster than it comes new. Put the old harddrive in a caddy where the Blank DVD plastic holder is and you'll have SSD and a second drive to use as storage. There's 3 ribbon cables to remove when taking the bottom off so pull it off slowly and release them so you don't damage something. All the screws you remove from bottom are the same size so don't worry about mixing them up.

Cons: Not many cons other than I wish the keyboard was a lightup one. I use a very tine 3" usb led flex light I found on A.M.A.Z.O.N which is awesome. It's just short enough to do the job but not too long that it gets in the way like many others out there.

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend this for anyone on a budget that still wants a great little machine especially since it has 2GB dedicated video memory. I can actually play Battlefield 4 on it quite easily by simply turning down the texturing an a few other things but not much...it's very playable.....I use a usb laptop cooler under it when gaming but the fans don't even startup that often, this thing runs very quiet considering Battlefield 4 is a pretty machine-taxing game. I think it has to do with me having an SSD in it so everything loads fast and plays fast so it doesn't tax the machine like the old 5400RPM drive did but I've played for hours and the laptop barely got too hot for my lap but I used the cooler anyway more to keep it cool than to protect my legs from heat, it simply didn't get hot enough to burn them like most laptops would have. All around an awesome machine.

Good general purpose laptop

Pros: Bought for around $550, which is an absolute bargain.
The i5 is more than enough to handle homework and browsing.
The 840m isn't the strongest by far, but can run minecraft, the sims, cities skylines, and even arma 3 reasonably.

Cons: Screen is what you'd expect for a low mid tier machine, viewing angles are okay, and colors are washed out.
The harddrive is slower than other 5400rpm drives out there.
The biggest con of all is the way the internals have been packaged. Removing the bottom panel to upgrade or repair is way more trouble than it needed to be. If carelessly dissembled, its quite easy to damage the ribbon cables that are strewn across motherboard to the keyboard and screen.

Other Thoughts: The Atheros wifi hasn't been any trouble as some have mentioned, but I've had issues with Atheros cards before.
I highly recommend the replacement of the internal HD with a SSD. Before the upgrade this machine would lag and freeze at times, and now with the SSD it really flies! As I mentioned it is tricky to upgrade but well worth the time and cost.

Acer's customer support is almost as bad as their laptops!

Pros: Dedicated graphics

Cons: Acer customer support is garbage, I have had to send it back for factory repairs 2 times after owning it for 6 months

Average performance low-end gaming laptop

Pros:
- Sometimes on sale for $529 - 549
- Arrived neatly packaged from the Newegg warehouse
- Thin and light; doesn't feel like 5.6 lbs
- Great sound with Dolby Digital Plus Home Theater
- Battery small and light, lasted 5 hr 35 min until 10% power. Used low brightness while browsing Internet/ watching videos
- Trackpad gestures (two finger scroll)
- Runs reliably and quietly for the most part

Cons:
- Computer feels slow. Not sure if issue is CPU, HDD or Windows 8, but sometimes the desktop doesn't show newly downloaded items unless I refresh. Simply typing in MS Word, Facebook or Steam lags. Opening Windows Explorer seems slower than it should be. After a week of using the laptop, I encountered freezing after signing in (wouldn’t load my taskbar) and after trying to shut down (had to rip out the power cord)
- Windows 8, but no touch screen = useless apps. Win 8 = dumb "user friendly" settings that are the opposite, i.e. NumLock doesn't automatically turn on at startup
- Trackpad off center towards the left. Easy to accidentally click something when your palm rests on it
- Right mouse click is less responsive than left; best to use fingers to tap trackpad

Other Thoughts:
- Purchased in Oct 2014, updated review Jan 2016: Laptop still runs at the same level and only gets warm when propped on the lap and used for 3+ hours. Still has good battery life, though I am usually plugged in using AC adapter and prefer a dim screen
- Chiclet keys not as flat/low profile as other laptops
- Adapter port seems loose, but it’s not. Though the plug fits snugly, you can jiggle it up and down
- Eject battery mechanism is difficult if you don’t have long nails, but at least it does it’s job of preventing accidental battery removal. You have to shove your nail in to pull the slider, which is a circular-shaped hole. It’s a little uncomfortable; maybe it’d be better if the hole were rectangular
- Bloatware (to be expected imo)
Here is a list of games and settings for playable fps (30 fps & under):
- League of Legends: medium character, low environment, low shadow, and low effects
- MMO Vindictus: lagged badly no matter what setting; might have been Nexon servers being bad
- MMOs Continent of the Ninth and Neverwinter: low to medium settings, had to tone down effects
- Left 4 Dead 2: bilinear filtering on, antialiasing off, medium textures, low shader and effect detail
- Dragon Age: Origins: medium graphics and textures, 2x antialiasing
- Outlast: high effects, textures, and shadow
- Metro 2033: low video settings
- Alan Wake: medium to low settings (eventually completely switched to low)
- Fallout 3: low settings (lag most likely due to incompatibility with Win 8)
- Bastion (no customizable graphics)
- Transistor(no customizable graphics): a little laggy w/ tearing issues
- The Witcher: mostly low advanced settings. Haven’t played Witcher 2 yet.
- Possible issues for made w/ Adventure Game Studio engine (I know there are probably other factors involved), e.g., Gemini Rue runs 100% fine, The Cat Lady terrible lag

Mouse Pad Torture

Pros: You get a fairly solid machine for the price.

Cons: Why oh why is the mouse pad to the left side of the laptop. It should be centered on computers body not to the left. It's very annoying to the left as a right handed person. Perhaps this is just an issue for me, but it's pure torture.

It runs much faster with an sd drive. Super slow with the built in HD.

The best computer I've owned, when it works

Pros: - Dedicated GPU that's surprisingly good for gaming - I've had no issues with running GTA V at full speed with medium graphics settings.
- Great balance of performance and battery life
- Surprisingly good speaker quality for a laptop - The Dolby Digital really made it shine when using it to watch movies.
- Great quality screen - I don't do any serious multimedia work professionally, but I play with Photoshop and Premiere Pro

This computer worked great for everything I needed to do with it (note the past tense, this is explained in the Cons section). I've had no issues with any development work, running multiple virtual machines, multimedia work including video editing, and some gaming. For the sale price of $629 I got it at, I couldn't have asked for anything better.

Cons: - For the first month after purchasing, I dealt with the built-in Atheros wifi card continuously dropping my connection, an issue that persisted upon multiple driver installs and multiple clean formats and reinstalls of Windows. I gave up and bought a Broadcom chip instead, and still never got the same connection speeds I could get with other devices on the same network, which made me think the issue was motherboard related rather than the network adapter or software.
- Adding to my suspicions of the motherboard's quality, it later developed a new problem where typing too hard in a particular spot (around the T key) would instantly crash the computer, with "too hard" meaning normal typing pressure. As a programmer, this was infuriating beyond all belief. It turns out that a metal 'foot' on the underside of the keyboard in this spot had scratched away and exposed a copper connection on the motherboard, shorting it out whenever they came into contact. I remedied this with a piece of tape over both the 'foot' and the spot on the motherboard that was scratched, though the multiple times this happened may have contributed to the last two issues.
- Undeterred in its plans to infuriate me, it later developed an issue where it would power off in my backpack when left in sleep mode and refuse to turn back on. The power lights would come on and the fans would spin, but the screen remained off and the hard drive would click and stop spinning after a few moments, after which it turned off and tried again to boot. This problem could be fixed by removing the keyboard, which makes me think it was still shorting out somehow because it would then boot normally with the cover unscrewed and removed. It didn't do this often at all, and it's survived many other trips in a bag with no issues.
- The final straw occurred with the same problem as the last point, except that time it failed to come back to life. I didn't even get a power light or fans, either with battery or AC power. The repair cost would have been over half of what I paid, presumably for a motherboard replacement as it could not longer even charge the battery either. I'm opting for an ASUS laptop instead this time, rather than paying the repair cost for it to inevitably find a new way to break.

Other Thoughts: This is a very good computer. Really, it is. It handled everything I needed it to like a champ. I don't know if I'd buy it again though, and certainly not at the current price it's at now. I don't know if my issues were due to a manufacturer defect or because of clumsiness during all the times I had to poke around with its insides (which were purely to fix the problems it was giving me to begin with), but I later read that Acer is somewhat known for its reputation in failing laptops and low build quality. This died in under a year and a half. I can't entirely blame Acer as I should probably have gotten the thing looked at or replaced earlier on, but a design where the keyboard support 'feet' could scratch at and short the motherboard should never have been able to pass quality assurance in the first place.
