Slick new laptop 3/28/2020 2:44:58 PM

Pros: Really impressed with the display quality and overall performance of this rig. A lot faster than my wife's older HP, slimmer and easier to tote around. The touchpad is remarkably good compared to other laptops I've tried.

Cons: Only thing this beast could really use is a built-in SD card reader. I knew it didn't have one before I ordered it so it's not really a con but a wish.

Overall Review: Initially wanted a portable for supporting my digital camera, working with my union, and giving me a lot more flexibility than my cell phone alone offers. Even though the keyboard is a little cramped I have no problems typing with my medium sized hands. With 8Gb RAM out of the box it runs browsing, documents, Youtube videos and all my usual tasks easily. It will need more RAM and storage for photo/video editing which it is ready to accept when I wish to upgrade. So far I'm very happy with this new Aspire 5 laptop.

Like most things; You get what you pay for 3/21/2020 3:41:35 AM

Overall Review: This is the first laptop computer I have ever owned.
I am not a computer novice however; I have been building my own PCs for years.

As with most things in life; You Get What You Pay For.
It is easy to see that this laptop contains many features not available in other laptops of the same price range. How did they do that? Magic?
No, not magic. Simply by cutting steps in other areas. As you read the other reviews; you will see a the same things mentioned several times; this is no fluke.

The 'craftsmanship' or 'quality' of this laptop is clearly Sub-par - cheap plastic throughout. As many others have said, it is nearly impossible to flip open the screen. There is absolutely nowhere to grab or grip, turning something that should be almost automatic (opening the laptop) into a chore, and something you must spend 10 seconds thinking about before actually doing.

Also, as many have said -- The screen quality (once you are finally able to get it open) is horrible. HORRIBLE. It is technically a 1920*1080 display; but it is clear to see why fullHD is not standard at this price point.

As almost EVERYONE has said, the charging port is horribly flimsy, and I have no doubt it will break very soon.

No one has mentioned the Ethernet port; which I find odd. The Ethernet port is not 'full size'. That means, the port expands to the full size (physically) when you insert a cable into the port. The problem with this is, the "designers" of this notebook thought it would be a good idea if the port expanded down, and not up. That means your notebook will NEVER be able to sit level on a table or other surface when you are online -- The left side of the notebook will be raised in the air because that is where the Ethernet port is located. Poor Design. Very Poor.

The speakers do work, but they are horribly tinny and hollow.

The track pad is off center (mentioned in other reviews) and horribly inconsistent as far as movement and 'clicking' go. If your intention was to use this laptop with the track pad and not a USB mouse, you will be sorely disappointed. It is almost unusable.

Many people complained about the keyboard lighting timing out after 30 seconds. I did notice that at first, but the Keyboard Lighting on mine stopped working COMPLETELY after an hour, so I no longer notice that. And as said, Caps lock and Num Lock do not have an indicator. You can download a 3rd party app which will add icons to the start menu; but you will still never be able to see those keys while gaming; which is odd on something marketed as a Budget Gaming Laptop.

I could sit here and nitpick every little thing about this laptop (it is very very poor quality throughout); but the fact of the matter is this should have all been evident before I purchased; so this is my fault.

I wouldn't recommend this laptop to anybody; except perhaps a child (but a child would surely physically damage this very easy as flimsy as it is).

If this is the money you can spend; you would do far better purchasing something else and missing out on some of the features of this laptop. In my opinion, the extra features are not worth the trade-off in quality.

I am going to save up a little more; and purchase a quality laptop like MSI.
Then I am going throw this Acer Junk to the bottom of a lake.

Defective Charge Port 3/12/2020 11:10:36 AM

Pros: Very good computer for the price. Would recommend upgrading the RAM.

Cons: The charge port started dying within about a week of the computer arriving.

Overall Review: Newegg will give me a complete refund, but it's just waste of my time. I also bought an extra hard drive and USB reader specifically for this, from a different place, which I have to see if I can return. Thankfully I didn't even have time to install the extra hard drive before the computer started to break.

So far so good? 3/6/2020 7:54:33 AM

Pros: As expected, fast performance, slim and stylish. Nice resolution.

Cons: The short keys are to be re-programmed, to match the windows traditional short keys.
The keyboard backlight - only 30 seconds. Irritating!

Overall Review: Good product for its price.
