Good while it lasted 2/1/2020 7:17:37 PM

Pros: -Cheap
-Dedicated GPU
-1080p screen
-Overall, great for the price

Cons: -HDD is very slow
-If you play an intensive game, battery life drain VERY quick
-Broke TWICE:
First, the a row of keys stopped. working until none of the keys worked at all and had to send it back.
Then, the backlight died not long after the keyboard incident and I was not able to ship the laptop back.

Overall Review: Overall, it doesn't sound terrible, but considering how many others have had issues with this laptop, I'd think twice and would reccomend others to choose a more reliable brand. There's no point in getting a laptop that sounds good on paper if it doesn't even work properly.

Nice laptop for the price! 5/2/2019 6:47:37 PM

Pros: Nice Keyboard, backlit
Nice trackpad, precise sensibility
Even though colors are a bit washed out, the display has HD quality
Laptop has a sturdy build
Upgradeability!!!! This is the best feature of this laptop

Cons: The brushed metal surface gets fingerprints stains really easy
It can be slow without an SSD (Usual HDD slow)
Battery Life can be better

Overall Review: At first I was really nervous about buying this laptop seeing some reviews in here about the screen, saying the laptop was extremely slow, and so on. I had my concerns about the performance of the laptop, since I'm a programmer and I need a decent machine. The laptop arrived today and I'm really happy with what I've seen.

The laptop has a sturdy build, I personally think a laptop it's not to be treated like a cellphone or something to move around like a toy, so the build is just fine, even if it's mostly plastic. The colors on the display seems a bit washed out, but it's because the matte finish. I have an HP 2018 laptop to compare and the screen of this Acer looks sharper. Viewing angles are okay.

I also installed an SSD too just because I had the chance to buy one beforehand, but out of the box, the HDD functions just normally. Yes people, HDDs are slow, they're mechanical elements and there's so much you can do to make a Windows system boot in less than 10 seconds with an HDD. That aside, yes, it's an enormous plus to install an SSD into this laptop. Seriously. I can't wait to upgrade the RAM too.

Battery life can be better, but hey, for a laptop like this, I'm okay. If you're one to do most of your work commuting or without having a power outlet near, then yes, you can seek other options with more durable battery.

I bought it under $500 and this one is definitely more than I expected for that price.

MUST UPGRADE TO M2. SATA SSD HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 2/16/2019 3:08:48 PM

Pros: -Laptop is way better after installing the Samsung 860 EVO 250GB M.2 SATA SSD, boots up in 7 seconds now. Rating after upgrade 4 Stars.
- Kept original 1TB HD in the laptop to use as disk space
-Decent enough Video Card for Gaming
-Decent Processor i5 7200u

Cons: -Very slow hard drive, boot up is painful (boot time over 3-5 mins)
-TERRIBLE MONITOR (I use a 24in Acer HDMI to my laptop way better quality)

Overall Review: Price for the Evo SSD on is $70 bucks shop around for prices, yes it is very much needed!.

Slow Laptop 2/2/2019 12:31:11 PM

Pros: Cheap, worked for a few months

Cons: Extremely slow, programs do not respond

Overall Review: I bought this laptop for college, I have very few programs installed on this laptop but it has started to get slower each day. It now runs worse than my parents 6 year old laptop that has about 8 functioning keys. Firefox, Microsoft word, and even Task Manager constantly crash. I get black screens with just my cursor at times. Conveniently enough, all of my problems started after the return policy has expired.

Acer Aspire 5 1/2/2019 8:20:23 AM

Pros: nothing really, this is a pretty poor laptop.

Cons: Buttons are falling off after 2 hours of use, computer is extremly slow on start ups (Does not have an SSD). The screen is backlit funny and gives a very soft appreance, not sharp at all.

Overall Review: This product, at the time, did not qualify for return shipping so now I got stuck with this pile of junk. Do not buy, research something else. Unfortunately most of the reviews were positive about this laptop and I got duped, I dont want this to happen you anyone else.

Very slow hd 12/16/2018 4:56:15 PM

Pros: Nice case and is thin and light. Display seems to be good for the price of the computer.

Cons: Terribly slow to boot and do anything. Couldn't even get all window updates. Hard drive is only 5200 rpm and very slow.
Replaced with a 1T ssd and it is now a decent computer.

Overall Review: If you buy this computer I would recommend you buy an ssd to install and reinstall windows.
