Sweet specs, Hot temperature.

Pros: Will run ALL of games you throw at it SMOOTHLY.

Cons: Temperatures are very high. I even got 95°C sometimes when playing AAA games.

Overall Review: Witcher 3 ultra settings temp averages at around 87-90°C. (Air conditioned room)

I think the problem here is aside from the built (They decided to put the GPU and CPU beside each other), Is the fan. It idles. Even the laptop is at its peak temp, the fan will not run its maximum rpm.

good laptop

Pros: Most everything works great

Cons: Lame wireless.

Overall Review: Lame wireless. Keeps on dropping, then connects. Only device in the house that does this. Worked fine for the 1st 2 months, then started getting worse. Would stay away from this model, let alone possibly acer.... Kinda sad at this price, that they would put inferior parts inside...

Incredible value for a desktop replacement, with a few caveats

Pros: - Price! A hexa-core processor and GTX 1060 for less than $1,000 (on sale)? Yes please.
- IPS display offers fantastic viewing angles.
- Generous I/O with USB Type-C, HDMI, Ethernet, and an SD card reader.
- Windows Hello support (via fingerprint reader).
- 2x2 Wi-Fi provides vastly superior speeds to 1x1 implementations common on "budget" systems.

Cons: - The IPS panel has a bit depth of only 6-bit! Incredibly disappointing.
- Keyboard area gets very warm under load.
- Only includes a 256 GB SSD. A 2.5" HDD for game storage has to be purchased separately.

Overall Review: If you're living in a dorm, RV, or just move around frequently and are looking for a desktop replacement that won't cause you to go broke, Acer's got a pretty solid offering. The 6-bit color panel is incredibly disappointing to see, but at least it's IPS. Just make sure to pick up a HDD for your games.

5/ 5
Great machine for the price!

Pros: - Fast
- Price
- 17" monitor
- Monitor has a great picture
- Doesn't overheat and throttle back like many other i7-8750H laptops (I can get it to throttle under stress tests but not under normal use)

Cons: - No external Mic jack for my HyperX headset - no biggy but slightly annoying
- HUGE and heavy but I didn't buy this for portability unless you count carrying it upstairs
- The Dolby sound isn't great but the Hyper X's make up for that
- Only one external monitor port - again no biggy and I knew it when I bought it

Overall Review: I got this on sale after returning another brand to another company that had some issues. The one I returned as a little more sleek, had a RTX 2060 and a mechanical keyboard. But again, it had issues. I got this for almost seven hundred less and I'm so glad I ended up with it. It still does exactly what I want it do just as fast I the other one.

Came with a faulty battery

Pros: Great machine. Very clean display and great gaming experience

Cons: The battery won't charge of you wanna play a game or download anything it'll keep beeping and won't charge for more than a second before disconnecting. It's a real disappointment, it's a great little laptop but I can't get the full experience because it won't stay charging. Even though it's plugged up. Idk if it's the battery that they put in it regular or if mines just defective. Either way its really irritating and disappointing coming from Acer

Overheating

Pros: Great specs. When it ran it was a beast

Cons: Thing overheats like there's no tomorrow. It runs above 50 degrees Celsius constantly.

Overall Review: Laptop no longer stays turned on unless it's plugged in. Even when it's plugged in it will shut off when in a game. I'm only talking about World of Warcraft, which has really low reqs.

Contacted Acer and was told to send it in for repairs. Will post an update here when repairs are done.

Specs/price sound too good to be true? They are.

Pros: The specs are terrific. 1060 6gb, i7, 16gb of dd4 ram.

Cons: Horrible. Asking for a refund after 3 days of ownership.

Requires a tremendous amount of work to keep it running smoothly. This thing will hit above-90 degrees temps while gaming, especially in VR. Yes you can undervolt it and do a lot but it's so much effort just to keep things *kind of* working. You're so much better off waiting for another laptop with similar specs to just go on sale.

Some programs just won't run.

Unlike previous Acer products I've owned, this one feels cheap and flimsy.

Overall Review: I love Acer, and I've loved my previous Acer Aspire. I was so disappointed by this.
