Consumer review (



i purchased this unit back in 2004(5?). Since then i only added a new video card, memory and hard drives. it was running pretty much 27x7 all these years ; Last year i decided to clean up the dust inside and ending up dropping the CPU. Thus i had to...

This is a good package


I'm hoping that Acer will redeem itself from some previous bad experiences. Seems like they are making a comeback.

The previous post did not notice that the AST160-US322H actually does have a firewire port, located in the rear panel of the box. This is a well-rounded box for the price, with excellent upgrade potential, as stated by the first post

No S-video or Composite output, unfortunately

I find the fact that the HD is divided into FAT32 and NFTS a bit confusing. I never seen a computer with the HD slipt up in to two like this before.

Quite nice, lots of upgrade potential. Good value and price

Nothing really, haven't used it often enough

Not Bad Computer


This computer is suprisingly good. It's not going to blow you away, but it runs Adobe Photoshop cabably. It came with a year subsription to NAV 2005. The 9-1 multi-format card reader is a nice bonus.

Great for entry level computer. 9-1 card reader. Vista Capable sticker. Runs quiet. Fast hard drive

No monitor. No Fire Wire

Price will drop on this machine in a month or two

Highly recommend this computer for either starter or advanced applications. NewEgg is consistently tops on price, delivery, communications, and support.

Flawless out of the box, computer has good, current spec at a very competitive price

Including speakers would be helpful

Clean, Simple, Fast


We ordered two of these systems, added 512MB of memory to each in a dual channel configuration, and installed a SUSE Linux 10.0 / Windows XP Pro dual boot configuration. Everything just works, and the build is simple and easy to work with.

Expandable - PCI express slot for future graphics updates, 3 empty slots for memory. 3 free SATA ports and screwless drive mounting system ; Fast

Hard drive access louder than other systems (no vibration isolation). Load controlled fans keep fan noise down to average levels

Great System


Overall I really like this system. Very fast for the price, easy to upgrade memory if needed. Great for office use.

SATA Seagate Hard drive. 512mb dimm in one socket - three empty. Not junked up with tons of demo software to uninstall. Overall a fairly quiet system. LG dvd burner. Optical mouse

200gb hard drive partitioned into (2) 100gb partitions. No original disc's, must burn your own, however this is popular amoung many of the manufacturers. No case fans, although this helps make it quiet
