Great Product, Runs a bit hot

Pros: Graphics are amazing,
screen size is huge,
backlight keyboard is nice

Cons: it is a bit big and bulky, makes it a pain to carry anywhere
it also runs extremely hot. I have bought 3 seperate cooling pads and none of them will do the trick.

Other Thoughts: I love this computer, however I would recommend something more sleek and thin if you travel or take it anywhere.

Excellent

Pros: -Packs an insanely great punch for the price
-Power up to log-in screen from a complete shutdown is about 5 seconds
-2.5" drive tray is unoccupied, easy to upgrade.
-RAM easy to access, altho 16gb should be fine imo
-Fingerprint reader on the trackpad is instant
-Runs cs:go max 180fps solid while streaming and on discord, with 1060/i7 it should perform well in other games as well.
-The keyboard isn't atrocious like some laptops in this price range.
-Build quality is nice
-Nice screen

Cons: -Battery life is very weak, even when just web browsing. For me personally, this isn't a real problem but expect 3-4 hours max just with chrome. If you are gaming on battery you are not going to be using the 1060 and your battery life will be barely enough for a comp game in csgo.
-Bit of bloatware that is annoying.
-Webcam is the generic low quality standard that the entire industry is using. Honestly looks about the same as my old hp pavilion from 4 years ago. (Seriously, the entire industry could use an upgrade in this department).
-Gets HOT
-Fans kinda loud but not a problem for me personally

Other Thoughts: Definitely would recommended this laptop to anyone looking for a mid range machine to do some gaming/school/productivity tasks on. It's competing a few hundred dollars above its price and lately its been going on sale, making it even better.

Would purchase again

Great gaming laptop and solid build for the price!

Pros: - GTX1060 plays any game at high resolution without a hiccup.
- CPU Intel Core i7 8th Gen 8750H fast! Handles multitasking with ease.
- 16 GB Memory 256 GB SSD adds needed speed for load times.
- 17.3" IPS 1920 x 1080 Full HD Display is beautiful, crisp and rich colors with very good angle views.
- You can adjust refresh rate to 90hz, virtually no issue while gaming even with default refresh rate.
- Fans work quietly (unless gaming)
- Materials are good quality.
- Not as heavy as I thought for its size.
- Good quality audio from speakers.
- Easy to upgrade and add additional storage
- Great buy at sub $1k (bought it at $969) and came with free Fortnite bundle and free Acer gaming mouse.

Cons: - Wish for more than one HDMI port.

Other Thoughts: - Gets hot around the upper and lower back of the laptop. You can use Intel Extreme Tuning Utility for voltage adjustment and turn on Cool Boost on Acer Quick Access
- Bios does not give any customization for adjusting multipliers and voltage for cpu and memory. But, you really don't need it as the hardware is more than enough to handle any multitasking and gaming.
- Fans being loud is normal for a gaming laptop as laptops are limited in cooling space vs desktop. Buy a cooling pad if you like. .

Bricked

Pros: - Amazing specs for the price
- I bought two, and one still works, but that's expected so not really a "pro"

Cons: - Device bricked after less than 60 days of light, gentle use. No drops and no ridiculous or sketchy usage demands.

Other Thoughts: Right now I'm pretty frustrated with trying to get it fixed. I've had barely too long to just return to Newegg, and now I'm having trouble getting a warranty service case with Acer. Full tilt.

I'm getting increasingly closer to just throwing the laptop away and trashing Acer on every platform I can think of. I've never bricked a Dell or IBM, but family members have had issues with other Acers in the past, so maybe the garbage is just where this product belongs.

I think it's a dead motherboard, so when I say bricked, I mean like superdead.

Great Laptop For The $$$

Pros: Quick boot times
Display is very bright & clear
Good backlit keyboard & touch pad
Overall build quality is good
Fairly thin & not too heavy
No lag (yet anyway)

Cons: Does run a little warm but find a laptop that doesn't. Battery life is middle of the road but that is expected with a bigger screen size. Other than that not many flaws I have found with it.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great laptop and highly recommended.

Great Laptop; high price/value ration

Pros: - Great performance overall from all components: dedicated gfx card and i7 are most welcome. The stock SSD is also lightning fast being a PCIe
- Great IPS screen with fantastic viewing angles
- I was looking for a decent desktop replacement when I go either traveling or to my cottage and this is perfect. I was not looking for portability and will therefore not deduct points for size and weight.
- Up-gradable/expandable: I ordered a samsung 500 gb SSD and installed it within minutes. Apparently the memory can also be upgraded so I will look into that and edit this later. I will also look into the possibility of upgrading the GPU, which would be awesome.
- Great keyboard with numpad; possible given the size.
- Amazing value: for what you are getting, it is hard to beat, although there are some caveats

Cons: - There is bloatware. Not a pillowing amount, but enough for a little sigh. No points deduced because it is not really a hassle to remove.
- The build of the laptop is fine, however the screen feels a bit hollow when pushed on from the back. This is perhaps my greatest complaint; that and the fact that it is all plastic. But hey, that's how they get the cost down. Definitely do not want to drop this.
- Very large and heavy and is therefore not portable. No points deducted because I knew this prior to buying and knew I wanted a desktop replacement and not a portable driver; I have a surface for that.
- GPU gets quite hot: I played about 3 hours straight of stellaris on this at max settings at 1080p and it gets very hot. No actual performance drops, but be warned.

Other Thoughts: - I recommend this to anyone looking for a portable desktop. Does the job very well!
- Runs hot, so I recommend a laptop cooler to keep it lower. This is probably the biggest drawback
- Overall very satisfied with my purchase.
