Works fine, but needed a fix 8/12/2020 7:51:14 PM

Pros: Performance has been as expected

Cons: Unfortunately, there was a disconnect of the keyboard in the internals, and I had to go into it and reconnect it. From other sources online it seems as though this is a common problem.

Overall Review: Found that it is a great price for the quality, but you might need to be prepared to do your own fix or send it in for some maintenance.

It's what I hoped it to be 8/9/2020 8:43:48 AM

Pros: I bought this for gaming purposes. I'm old so my demands aren't too great, I want to run high detail settings and have 80+ consistent fps without major frame drops. It has done that well and I'm very pleased.

Cons: My only complaints are it runs hot but I solved the issue by under volting the processor. It only gets to 80 c on average.

The built in speakers could be a bit louder but only minor complaint

Overall Review: If you are old like me and still enjoy gaming, I think this is a solid laptop.

DO NOT BUY 8/3/2020 6:31:38 AM

Overall Review: 3 months in and I'm changing this review. DO NOT BUY THIS LAPTOP. I've had NOTHING but issues with it and because it doesn't come with a warranty I'm basically buggered.

- The AUX jack does not work, audio only comes from one channel.
- CPU fan makes a loud rattling noise when running at a medium speed.
- The power button does not function correctly, only works when the moon and the stars are aligned the right way.
- Putting in a hard-drive causes the airflow to become terrible, laptop now permanently runs hot.

Do not buy from Acer, their products are never good. I've never had anything but problems with them and I don't know why I risked it again.

Solid Laptop for a Good Price 6/2/2020 8:38:01 AM

Pros: Good performance
Expansion slots for another PCIe SSD and 2.5" SSD/HDD
Big screen
Adjustable fans
Backlit keyboard
Looks good

Cons: Sharp edges can agitate wrists
Upgrading requires the removal of the bottom of the laptop

Overall Review: So, far, so good. When I first opened the package up, I inspected the laptop and other than a couple of barely noticeable marks on the bottom, I would have never guessed it was refurbished. Solid 17" display and still maintains a rather light weight for its size.

While the aesthetics of the system are gorgeous, edges of the unit are angled rather than rounded. I've found it can rub on the wrists when using the keyboard. Also, the need to remove the entire bottom of the unit to upgrade the RAM or add in storage can be intimidating to anyone who isn't at least at an intermediate level of computer upgrades.

So far a great laptop 5/7/2020 12:55:18 PM

Pros: Bought this for my wife so she play some games, not typical AAA titles but I think this would be just fine for them too. Decent as a productivity laptop as well, handles all the normal every day tasks and can game.

Cons: The power brick is massive!! It is literally the size of a brick and as heavy.

Overall Review: We got this on sale so at the price we paid for it yes I would definitely recommend.

So far DOA, waiting for replacement 4/24/2020 3:15:06 PM

Pros: It looks really cool and sleek, very lightweight for a large laptop BUT that's all I can review so far because it arrived DOA even after a full 8 hours of charging would not power on so I guess it had a dead motherboard! I'm not one to freak out too easily on stuff like this knowing the great return policy so I just sent it back for a replacement and I am excited to try out the next one. It it lets me I will update my review once I get the replacement.
