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.

perfect gaming laptop

Pros: fast, 1060, has space to add 2.5" sata drive. Comes with mvne drive which is good. great screen.

Cons: Only cons are it is HUGE and the default function for the F keys is the special functions. you need to go into the BIOS to change the F keys to act as F keys by default.

Overall Review: Really glad Newegg had this laptop available for the price. Was looking for a good laptop that could still play games and this is definitely fitting the bill. While not the most powerful for gaming it will still get the job done.

DPC_Watchdog_Violation

Pros: - Fast
- graphics card

Cons: Had it for about a couple weeks before getting the watchdog violation, tried numerous online explanations. on the phone with Acer. We'll see what happens I guess.

Overall Review: Get it if you're on a budget. Don't get it if you can afford better, as is with EVERYTHING in a capitalistic society.

This laptop's cooling is trash.

Pros: It has good specs

Cons: You can not manually control the fans, and the fans cannot handle the heat that this computer puts out.
This computer has a sticker on it that says it is "VR Ready" but if you do anything in VR, your computer will heat up a lot.

The computer starts lagging badly when it starts heating up. Then your FPS goes back to normal when the fans turn on. But once it cools back down, the fans turn themselves off and your computer starts heating up again, and it just keeps cycling like that over and over again. It shuts itself off as soon as it reaches 100 degrees celsius.

If you want to play with v-sync off, your computer will over heat.
If you want to connect an external monitor with higher hz, it will probably over heat.

I had to buy an external cooling pad and repaste the components with Arctic MX-4 to play regular non-vr games without getting FPS throttled.
It still gets too hot playing VR games. I'm really unhappy with this thing and would've just not bought it if I had known what a hassle it would be to try to play anything on it.

It BSOD's a lot too sometimes when coming out of sleep mode with "DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION" but it never saves the logs, so I can't troubleshoot the problem.

Overall Review: DON'T BUY THIS. I wish I would've just built a whole new desktop.
