Acer Aspire AU5-620-UB10 review

 

Calling Windows 8 a "tough sell" is a bit of an understatement. Microsoft's re-imagining of the classic desktop as a touch-centric affair threw many of us for a loop, especially those of us accustomed to PCs with large monitors, managed via a keyboard...

The Acer Aspire AU5-620-UB10 offers good performance and an attractive IPS display at a budget price.

The 5,400 RPM hard drive results in slower load times for applications, and peripherals can eat up the five USB ports quickly.

The Acer Aspire AU5-620 is a great entertainment PC, pairing an attractive display and strong media-streaming performance with a wallet-friendly price.

Acer Aspire U5 (AU5-620-UB10)

 

The Acer Aspire U5 (AU5-620-UB10) is a good all-around home PC, and a reasonably priced all-in-one that doesn't require much compromise.

Reasonable price. Decent performance. Spacious 1TB hard drive. Large, 23-inch full HD display with touch capability. Stable design. HDMI input opens up other uses.

Integrated graphics only. No Blu-ray drive.

Conclusion All told, the Acer Aspire U5 (AU5-620-UB10) is a good system for the home, offering a solid mix of design, features, and performance for a reasonable price. The Editors' Choice Dell Inspiron 23 (2350) is still our top pick for midrange...

Acer changed the look of its all-in-one line, but this machine's performance leaves much to be desired.

Handsome industrial design ; HDMI in and out ; 802.11ac Wi-Fi adapter

Unattractive price-to-performance ratio ; Slow hard drive ; No Blu-ray drive

Acer's Aspire AU5-620-U10 is a good-looking all-in-one PC. But at this price, gamers and anyone with serious computing needs should look elsewhere.

Acer Aspire U5 AU5-620-UR51 Review

 

It's clear that Acer's Aspire U5 is an older PC line. The company has integrated newer hardware into its Z3 line, and the performance differences are considerable. In these sorts of situations, we expect manufacturers to drop their prices on the older...

The Aspire U5 has an integrated DVD drive but is still one of the lightest, easiest-to-move all-in-ones on our lineup.

Its older processor doesn’t hit the minimum benchmarks we expect from a modern computer.

When you can get a different, better-featured Acer all-in-one for about the same price, there’s no reason to buy the Aspire U5.

Acer Aspire U5-620 review

 

The Acer Aspire U5-620 is a well-specified multimedia machine, but clunky software and so-so design limits its appeal

The Acer Aspire U5-620 is a good all-in-one PC for media consumption and a bit of light gaming. While its built-in TV software is clunky and its bundled keyboard and mouse could do with improvement, the U5-620 is a well-specified device which should...

Acer Aspire U5-620 review

 

A promising high-performance all-in-one, but the dim display and uninspiring design leave us wanting more

In the main, though, we were quietly impressed with the Aspire U5-620. Acer has done a great job packing a gaming-capable, multimedia entertainment centre into such a compact chassis. However, its biggest rival, the £1,199 Apple iMac 21.5in, is an...

Excelleny Purchase

 

A machine that does what you want without any problems. Fast, clear screen, plenty of USB plugs and a very simple initial start up. The i7 Processor makes it easy to multitask without slowing down. I use mine as a recording studio and it does...

Acer Aspire U5-620

 

Space saving all-in-one design. Large screen size. Wireless keyboard and mouse. Free update to windows 10. Good wireless connectivity.

Unfamiliarity of windows 10....but quite easy to adjust to.
