Acer :: Aspire 4315- Repair Review

May 15, 2008

I sent my Acer Aspire 4315 notebook to their repair center in Texas. I had a problem with the jack input for the power. It wasn't responding and found out that it was broken (Update: it wasn't actually broken it just felt very loose to the point were it might break). Also the left corner of the notebook was loose. In order to send in your notebook you have to use there online acer depot repair request system. So I sent it in using UPS ground which cost me $40. After 3 days I received and email saying it was received. 2 days later I receive another email saying it was fixed and will be shipped back using Fedex. Then 4 days later when I got home I received a "door tag" saying i wasn't there to pick up the package and sign for it. It came at 11:30 A.M and I get home a 4:00 P.M. So obviously I couldn't sign for it. Because of this problem I called and requested that they ship it after 4:00. They said they can ask the driver but it doesn't guarantee that will be shipped at the time you requested. So the next I come home I get another "door tag" saying I missed my package the second time. This time I asked them to leave it at there facility and let me pick it up. They said I would have to wait until tommorow to get my package. Tommorow arrives and I pick it up. Finally I have my notebook. I now drive back and open up the box. It came with a paper saying it was fixed. So I now get my AC adapter to plug it in. And guess what? They didn't fix the problem. I carefully looked at the paper and it said that they fixed problem stated which in there mind was the loose left corner of my notebook. WTF? They didn't even bother to fixed the important problem, the POWER JACK! That's horrible service! I then call them saying they didn't fix the problem. after being transferred 5 YES 5 TIMES! The support person said they will pay for the shipping to send it back. Which means that I will have to wait even more to get it back AGAIN and actually have it fixed. The only good part about it being shipped back is that they are going to use Fedex priority overnight. WOW WHAT A TREAT!

UPDATE: I havn't shipped the laptop back. I was about to until I decided to take one last "explore" inside of it. I found out that the power jack wasn't directly attached to the motherboard, just a wire leading to it. So with a little superglue or epoxy it would be fixed. Now that I know what to do. There will be no need to send it back and wait another horrible week!

Acer :: Aspire 4315 Audio Drivers

Jul 26, 2008

Been trying to get some audio drivers for a 4315 with XP Pro OS.

One's tried so far are,

Audio_Realtek_v6.0.1.5413_R167_XP_Vista

Audio_Azalia_v.5.10.0.5443

downloaded these from the acer site still not working, pretty sure it needs a realtek driver, is there a patch or something else needed?

Acer :: Cpu Upgrade On Aspire 4315-2963

Feb 17, 2009

A while back I an Acer Aspire 4315-2963 from Microcenter.

Here are the specs...
[url]

I stumbled on this forum and read a few posts about how some of you put a dual core processor in it. I noticed that the Core 2 Duo T7100 was used and I had some questions.

My first question is...

The current processor is a Intel Celeron 540 with a FSB speed of 533 MHz. The ram is also 533 MHz. However, the T7100 I want to use has a 800 MHz FSB. If I use this processor, won't I get problems with the processor having a faster FSB than the ram?

My second question is...

If anyone has done this processor upgrade, can you see a difference in the battery life? Currently, with the Celeron processor, I get 1 hour 45 minutes of battery life. Will the T7100 extend the battery life?

Acer :: Aspire 6920 Review (After 2 Years)

Apr 8, 2010

Hey folks. I wrote a review for The Acer Guy back when I first bought my laptop (Aspire 6920-6621), but it's time for an update.
(Link to my original review [url]
Here's some basic specs:
Windows Vista Home Premium
Two 140gig HD's
1.83GhZ Dual Core Intel Processor
3gig RAM
And some dinky graphics chip.

Well, after two years, I have to say it has held up but not as well as I think it should have.

A few months after writing my first review, I had to send my Laptop to Acer. Admittedly, the customer support was fantastic. They took care of me.

HOWEVER, I'm not pleased with how my computer came back. It wasn't put back together, and I didn't want to send it back to them again.

Regardless, the build quality is a bit iffy. Not sure if other people have had this issue, but cracks are forming in several places. The first time I sent the computer back, it was because of cracks on the bezel. They replaced it, but after a few months the cracks came back. There is also a crack on the bottom cover.

Keyboard flex is there but not too severe.

When I was dusting my keyboard, the sharp end of the spacebar snapped off, so now a good few mm's are missing. I sanded it down and it looks fine, but still.

The express card placeholder doesn't stay in well, in fact, if you aren't careful, the thing will come out.

In terms of performance, it's still holding up. I've not had any problems with Vista, and I game as well as code. Steam has given me a few C++ errors, but meh.

Audio quality is acceptable. The left speaker is crackling and the "subwoofer" adds a nice effect, but overall it's disappointing. Should be better for all the hype.

Screen quality is actually pretty good, much better than most computers I've used. The only thing that I've used that compares is a Mac.

Acer :: Aspire One AOD150-1165 Review

Mar 1, 2009

I had seen these and similar units available for some time. The Acer models caught my attention the first time I came across them browsing through hardware for an order I was placing. They are sleek netbooks with a nice clean paint job resembling a showroom sports car. Ultra portable, thin and lite, these are the best balance of functionality and extreme mobility.

Like I said in my introduction I had seen these online for some time but never bought one. I thought they looked attractive but doubted there efficiency for office use. I didn't want to spend $300+ on something I wasn't sure could meet my needs. I had used a HP mini and hated it. Found the screen too small and unstable. Noticed some flickering with the HP units that turned me off from the netbook PCs. However something about the Acer units kept me curious.

The wife must have noticed how curious I had grown, and surprised me with one for Valentines Day. This was the best gift I could have gotten. This PC is awesome and totally destroyed my skepticism.............................

Acer :: Aspire 7720-6395 Review

Dec 15, 2007

I've uploaded my referenced screen grabs here since I ran into difficulties last night. This seemed like the logical solution.

I bought the Acer Aspire 7720-6395 yesterday. I couldn't find any reviews other than those on Best Buy's website (a couple are okay, but none comprehensive), so I hope to contribute to anyone else who might be considering it but unsure. I live an hour from the nearest big city, so any additional details would've made it easier to make the drive.

Forgive me if there are details you don't need or none that you do. I'll do my best.

I won't repeat the specs that Best Buy gives on their website, but I'll shed light on a couple that aren't clear through writing or screen grabs.

It seems that a number of people bought it thinking it had a Blu-Ray writer (BB had something on their site saying so, apparently), but be sure you note that it is only a Blu-Ray ROM drive. I say only...

Oh, and it is also a dual layer DVD writer and CD writer.

It has an integrated webcam and microphone if you're prone to video chatting.

The speakers are in a strip directly under the power and accessory buttons. It boasts "DOLBY DIGITAL LIVE" above the mesh, but they sound like most other decent laptop speakers. Not great, but pretty good all things considered.......................

Acer :: Aspire AS5740g-6454 Review And 1st Impression

Feb 27, 2010

I am a big Asus g-series fan since getting a g51vx-a1 gaming laptop needless to say i sold it and have a g73 on preorder and an m11x due both next month.
In the meantime they keep pushing EDD on both so I need to game right? and since I sold my beloved G51 (early Feb) and was currently using either a vaio fz470 OR an asus f3sv to game.
I wasn't happy with the results i was getting raidwise in WoW ,basically all settings set to low

I looked around for a cheap laptop with these specifications:

better than average cpu, gpu with dx11 support, HDMI and cheap

I looked at other offerings from Asus but many i was looking at N61/N71 were also on pre-order sad times indeed.

surfing the local comp store web I decided to search for something with the ati 5650 which i read got great reviews for gaming.
up pops the 5740 and its big brother 7740
since i wanted cheap i opted for the 5470:

Acer :: Broken LCD Send To For Repair Or DIY

Sep 29, 2009

I have a 4 month old Acer Aspire 6920G laptop with a cracked LCD. It happened just by catching the corner of it (the plastic surround, not the lcd) with the back of my hand (it was just a tap for god's sake!) as I went to plug in a memory stick. Brilliant. I guess the screen was weakened for some reason.

Anyway, I know the screen isn't covered by the warranty so I was wondering how much Acer charge to replace the screen? I've looked around and can get a new replacement screen for about 95 and fit it myself but I assume that will void the rest of my warranty? I'm happy to go the DIY route if a screen is far more expensive from Acer.

Acer :: Sent Laptop For Screen Repair, Harddrive Wiped

Apr 3, 2009

What is the point of sending a laptop to repairs if they do more damage than good? I could put up with the dodgy screen. I have months of work, musical compositions etc. stored on that laptop. This is a disgrace and I can't imagine what would possibly compensate for it. I'll have to see what I can get off my old laptop that I gave to someone else and look through my emails for stuff I sent people.

Acer :: 4740G Review (Malaysia)

Apr 13, 2010

Intro

"Talk about your first impressions. Reasons for buying."
Its for work. Price point was actually as low as I could find in a proper branded laptop in stock YET with dedicated video. Initial impression was positive although I most of my history is with Dell. Primary thing is keyboard since for ME I prefer US layout vs UK which sometimes happens here.

Specs:
Primary items include the i3 and Nvidia 310M. 500GB drive, bluetooth, and 3USB ports were also notable items during my comparisons

What's in the Box:

Warranty card/info
90W power brick
battery
laptop (of course)
NOT included: media CD's

Design

"What do you think of the aesthetics of the notebook?"
Quite pleased so far but do not care for the fingerprint attracting surface on the back of the LCD (viewed when closed). The flush mounted look of all the buttons and power are nicely done.........................

Acer :: Ferrari 1000 Review

Jun 13, 2009

Acer Ferrari 1000

Introductions

The Acer Ferrari 1000 is the fifth incarnation of the Acer Ferrari line. The Ferrari line was brought as a joint effort between Acer and AMD. The Ferrari part comes into play as both Acer and AMD are sponsors of the Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 racing team. First impressions of the Acer Ferrari 1000 notebook brought about an impulsive need to purchase. This notebook sets itself apart from the crowd with performance and styling which will get it noticed on your trip to the local coffee house or anywhere for that matter. The Acer Ferrari 1000 is typically categorized as an ultra-compact notebook being that it is only a 12.1 inch notebook. This was one of the primary reasons that this reviewer had for purchasing the Acer Ferrari 1000. At the time this reviewer was looking for a notebook the primary concerns were small, lightweight and the ability to support 4GB or memory. The Acer Ferrari 1000 met all these needs and even delivered more. However, the Ferrari 1000 did not come cheap at an MSRP $1999.

The Ferrari 1000 was the first Ferrari to feature a 12.1 inch chassis, where previous generations were either a 15 or 15.4 inch chassis. Acer meticulously was able to engineer all the style, performance, and quality of the Ferrari line into a small 12.1 inch chassis. Furthermore, they just about got it right on the first try.

SpecificationsBrand Acer
Model Ferrari 1000
Processor AMD Turion X2 TL-60 Dual Core 2Gz, 1MB L2 cache (512KB per core)
Video Card Integrated ATI Express 1150 with Shared Memory up to 256MB
Display 12.1 inch 1280x800 resolution (WXGA) (16:10 aspect)
Chipset ATI Express 1150 (ATI RS485M + ATI SB460)
Memory 4GB DDR2 PC2-6400 800 MHz Memory
Disk Storage 500GB 5400RPM SATA hard drive
Audio 2 speakers
Media Bay 5-in-1 card reader (SD, MS, MS Pro, MMC, xD)
Battery 2 Batteries included 3-Cell 2000mAh & 6-Cell 5200mAh
Weight 3.7 lbs..........

Acer :: 4810TZ & A Small Review

Oct 19, 2009

The design looks simply beautiful. The silver lid and the gun metal color inside is awsome. The dark colors inside will help in not causing any strain for your eyes even after working for long time.

The touchpad too has a matte finish, making it easy to use. It is very responsive. The scroll and zoom gestures helps a lot in reducing the effort though am not convinced with the third gesture, would be good if this gesture could be used for something better.

Option to turn off/on the bluetooth and wifi via the buttons/touch buttons is really good, I had trouble with some other laptops trying to find out how to do this.

The option to turnoff the screen helps conserve energy, while listening to music or doing some activity which do not need any human intervention. The screen is bright enough. I keep it at the lowest brightness while working, without any issues...............

Acer :: Ferrari 5002 Review

Dec 13, 2007

First of all I have been thinking that why here is no such Review Available for this computer up till now. Anyhow I got this one but I was expecting it to be 5005 with 2.2 Ghz but anyhow I got better price too. I got this one for around 1000 US $ where 5005 was around 1800$.

My computer Specificaitons are:

Processor: AMD Turion (tm) 64 x2 Mobile TL-50 1.6 Ghz
RAM: 2GB
HD: 120 GB (5400RPM) SATA
VGA: ATI x1600 (512 with 256 Hyper Memory
Operatting System: XP Media Center

Other specifications can be requested. I was really very much willing to have review of this laptop over this computer that i hardly found. Though I did found nice pictures of this computer in the pictures section. Uptill now I am not able to get any nice score form this comptuer as I was expecting due to which now I am thinking I should have gone for Aspire 5920G as it comes with Nvidia 8600GT and having Ferrari was not a good choice as I am casual gamer. But its appearance and overall outlook is very attractive. Specially the name: FERRARI though Ferrari is not performing upto its name. My old system was.
Acer Aspire 5651 AWLMi
Core Duo: 1.73 Ghz
RAM: 2GB
HD: 120 GB (5400 RPM) SATA
VGA: Nvidia 7600 (128 MB)......................

Acer :: Timeline 4810t Initial Impression And Review

Jun 7, 2009

Just purchased the Acer Timeline 4810T from Staples. This is is the 14.1 inches variant, thought I might post some initial impression for all who are interested.

Spec
Intel Core 2 Solo SU3500 1.4 ghz, 800 Mhz FSB, 3MB L2 Cache
4GB DDR 3 ram
320GB 5400rpm Western Digital
DVD+RW super multi
Wireless A/B/G (Atheros)
14.1 in 1368 x 768 LED (720P)
Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bits

HARDWARE
Contained the Acer Timeline, small form factor adapter/charger, 6 Cell 5800mah, 63WHR battery. manual and the usual documentation. No operating system dvd nor driver disc were included, however, the laptop did give me an option to create recovery discs.

The initial inspection of chasis was favorable, as you can see in the picture, it is thinner than a white macbook, roughly same thickness closed as the aluminum macbook. Chasis was rigid with no flex, the only part of the laptop that exhibit any kind of flex is the keyboard. Should you type hard, you can see the center of the keyboard being compressed downward. The chicklet style keyboard however, remained very usable and responsive.

Sound is loud and clear unlike tinny netbook speaker.

Mine comes with 3 USB port, 1 VGB, 1 HDMI, 1 ethernet port and 1 DVD+RW super multi. It also has a 5 in 1 memory card reader towards the front. 1 headphone output and 1 microphone input..........................
