Working great for me 11/10/2019 4:16:13 PM

Overall Review: This laptop has been working like a champ for me. It games no problem. Most of the time I have it hooked up to my 4k TV that I use as a monitor using the HDMI out port. So it's just like playing games and working on a desktop that way. I honestly wouldn't even know it was a laptop running if I wasn't the one who set it up. The processor and video card working together make for a great powerhouse in a compact form.

When you first get it make sure to remove any bloatware though and change any settings to have it running as efficiently as possible. Ran great after doing that but I eventually reinstalled windows for a total clean install. They add to much junk software to this machine. Once it's all gone it'll be smooth as silk.

The audio is the best onboard Audio I've ever heard. I'd say it rivals high end sound cards. BUT only if you have efficient high end headphones. It won't put out enough power for harder to drive headphones. And even with efficient high end headphones there will be some songs that are mixed lower and you'll wish you could turn up the volume more. But that is how it is for any 1/8" jack and big headphones. Normally you're supposed to use those headphones with headphone amp. Your average headphones and earbuds should work awesome. So if you have efficient high end headphones, you'll get sound clarity that is absolutely incredible. (I'm using the AKG k702). Oh yeah make sure to remove and disable all the Audio software junk they provide. Just use windows for that.

This laptop could use more exhaust vents. It only vents at the top, it's easy to block. The fans can be loud too when it gets going. I ended up putting something under the top area so the whole laptop has a rake to it. Just an inch or two. That way all the heat rises and naturally flows out the top vents. I've found that the fans hardly ever come on anymore unless I'm doing something taxing. And it overall just runs cooler all the time.

So I'd imagine and it sounds like a few of the bad reviews are from people that didn't properly remove the bloatware and know how to efficiently set up a laptop and operating system. And also they are allowing the machine to overheat and possibly are blocking the vents or facing the vents angled down a little. If you tilt it up just a tad, don't block the vents, remove all bloatware (or just reinstall windows), and dial all the settings in, then you have one powerful little machine that runs like a champ.

So all the cons:.
-That is fair to be bothered by the bloatware. It is a problem, but can be remedied.
- The fans and heat and small vent is a legit concern but also can be remedied, it's a powerful machine you can game on, it has to vent all that heat some place, this isn't some weak video card and processor. But again they could have had more vents.
- The clam shell hinge is way to tight. But I guess better tight than loose.
- I have some back light bleed through, more apparent in the corner. I only notice it on black backgrounds in a dark room. So not often, but not ideal. That is craps shoot with all laptops on how much or how little bleed through you'll get. Overall the picture quality if fantastic. Really good angle viewing too. No weird affects going on.

If you want more battery life you can change some settings on when to use the Nvidia card or onboard in windows and I think Nvidias panel. Look you wanted the power you need to know how to make it all work and make adjustments for how you want to use it.

So yeah it's a heck of a good machine, you can't ask for more at this price. I'd say quite a bargain comparing prices to others with the same specs. You can easily overcome any of the main issues listed above and have a fantastic mobile gaming and work machine. I added another 515 gig SSD to mine. Just plugs right in after you unscrew the hatch. This thing feels as fast and snappy as any desktop I've owned.

Do not buy ANYTHING from ACER!!! 10/31/2019 11:07:45 AM

Pros: None!

Cons: Everything about this laptop is just wrong. Heed my warning. You get what you pay for. I have owned this laptop since December of 2018. I have never seen such restrictions and total lack of options for a computer you purchased. BIOS is pretty much locked to where you have little to no control over your settings. The bloatware makes this thing crawl slower than a snail even with an Nvme SSD. Very very disappointed about everything concerning this machine (if you can call it that). That is just the machine and not customer service. Customer Service is a joke at best. I explore (NOW) everyone to never purchase any Acer product. Trust me they earn that negativity. Never ever again will I purchase an Acer product!!!

Overall Review: This machine is garbage.

Unstable model, these should be recalled. 10/30/2019 10:15:48 PM

Pros: We purchased four of these laptops for our developers because they had a good spec on paper and the price was good.

Cons: We purchased four of these laptops. Three of them crash several times a week. Our IT staff has spent hundreds of hours trying work arounds. One of the laptops crashes with blue screens. Another one loses video and has to be powered off by holding the power button until it powers down. The third laptop crashes on boot up while trying to load the OS from the SSD.

Overall Review: I would not recommend this model if you need stability.

Decent Gaming Laptop When it Works 10/12/2019 3:58:31 AM

Pros: -GTX1060 Graphics Card
-Can handle pretty much any game I own on high settings running around 60fps
-Large screen for movies/media consumption
-Fingerprint reader
-16GB DDR4 Memory
-Can add another SSD/HDD for extra storage

Cons: -Runs pretty hot when running games that are graphically intensive
-Battery life isn't the best so you'll most likely be keeping this plugged in if you plan on doing anything like gaming or processes that utilize a lot of system resources.
-Crashes A LOT

Overall Review: I really have to take off a few stars on, what I consider, a pretty high end system for my needs. I've had this for over 5 months now and when I run Windows 10 it seems I can't run it for more than a few hours without it crashing on me. Even if I'm just watching videos or web browsing I will get a BSOD which I've tried to troubleshoot but to no avail so far. The only fix I have found is to get rid of Windows and install a distro if Linux like Ubuntu which works pretty well. However with Ubuntu there are challenges such as not having being able to utilize all the features that this laptop offers. For example I love having a fingerprint reader for fast logins but with Ubuntu there is no support for the hardware so I am unable to enjoy this feature. Thankfully I can still enjoy playing games on Steam thanks to the recent updates with Proton.

This system offers a lot of great features for the money but the fact that WIndows has so many issues running on it makes it hard for me to recommend it. I don't have a problem with installing and running Ubuntu on here but it should be a choice and not out of necessity in order to make the system work.

This thing is a beast 10/9/2019 4:35:00 AM

Pros: FAST. FAST. FAST. Screen is bright and beautiful. Has extra drive bay for another SSD or hard drive. Storage is done on an Intel Optane M.2. The specs here aren't clear about that.

Cons: I hit the Windows 10 time zone bug when setting it up, no fault of Acer. Delete your Windows "cloud cache" registry key if your Start Menu tiles keep getting messed up after changing the time zone.

Overall Review: Love it. Couldn't be happier.

Sweet specs, Hot temperature. 10/9/2019 1:29:56 AM

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.
