Acer Aspire M3400


It's tough to find much direct competition at the Acer Aspire M3400's $600 price point (as of September 24, 2010). More-expensive systems tend to offer stronger features and speed, as you might expect. Systems in the budget desktops category,...

Above-average general performance ; Excellent case design

Underwhelming storage capacity ; Internal wiring inhibits upgrading ; Lacks diversity in connection types

Acer's Aspire M3400 budget desktop puts up a good fight--but in terms of features, competing (and similarly priced) systems are just a bit better.

This $649 tower can handle office tasks and dabble in gaming. It's well-rounded for families or anyone seeking more power than most budget desktops.

Fair overall value, Sensible component selection, Handy case features for a budget PC

Finicky eject buttons, Wired peripherals, Limited gaming performance

Acer Aspire M3400


Machine is OK, but would never buy another one.


Vertical CD-DVD drive and lower switch to open it are not convenient. It should be noted that Acer will not allow warranty registration or recognize a warranty for seven days. In my case the CD-DVD drive would not recognize CD's. Instead of waiting...

Not bad for a prebuilt


Bought this for the spouse so she would keep of all of my PCs. I was too busy at the time to build her one.

I didn't have to put anything together ; Has everything already needed out of the box to hand to the wife so she has her own PC

Lasted a few years then the PSU started to fail. pulled it and replaced it but the damage had been done. the motherboard failed a month later. Replaced the motherboard with one off this site for 23 bucks

Nice & cheap, but is there no QA?


Advice to Acer: Test the dang thing before packing it in the box.

Cheap, fast, machine. Great newegg pricing/shipping

Would not boot 1st time. Windows could not find the hard drive. I opened ; The case to find the power was not connected to the hard drive (that's ghetto). Then when I powered up there was no driver for the Ethernet controller (equally ghetto). Any...

Great Deal


I can't build it this cheap with quality parts. It runs nice and cool, very quiet compared to some of my rigs. I sometimes forget it's on, and reach down only to see the glowing lights!

Out of the box, it was great. Runs really quick. On day to day tasks it's as fast as a rig I built with a Phenom II X4 965. It's not breaking any benchmark records, but it plays games well and is incredible for multitasking CS5 and M$ Office 2010

None yet. There's no room for expansion really, but it's good enough as-is

Great computer


Fast, extremely silent. For the money it is faster than any other computer I've seen. Plays games with high graphic requirements nicely

None that I know of yet

2nd Time Around No Charm!


Poor Quality Control...You think that they would at least plug the machine in to see if it works before they send it out!


RMA- the thing twice! Recovery disks would not work because computer could not find the Hard Drive. 2X
