Acer Aspire X3400

 

At first glance, you might notice a similarity between the $450 Acer Aspire X3400 and the $600 Gateway SX2311-03 budget desktop (prices as of September 24, 2010). But even though both budget desktops have comparably modest dimensions and a certain...

Great price-to-performance ratio ; Large number of USB ports for external connections

Internal construction limits upgrades ; External connection options lack diversity

Acer's inexpensive Aspire X3400 makes a strong showing for a reasonable price.

Acer Aspire X3400-U2012 SFF PC Review

 

It's a tough world for a consumer desktop PC. Laptops have stolen all the glamour; you need to offer something special if you're going to stand out among the rank and file of stationary computing. Acer's Aspire X3400-U2012 may not be a true portable PC...

We’d like to see a bigger hard-drive as standard, and obviously the GPU falls short of anything a semi-serious gamer might be looking for, but considering the $459.99 MRSP there’s plenty to like about the Acer Aspire X3400-U2012. Solid – if not...

Acer Aspire X3400 review

 

Part of the reason for the Acer system's low cost is its triple-core AMD Athlon II X3 435 processor, clocked at 2.9GHz. There is 3GB DDR3 memory and a 640GB hard drive.

The Acer Aspire X3400 is reasonably well blessed in terms of features and performance. It could use a little more storage capacity, but the the X3400 is very well priced. The X3400 also beats the only even cheaper category of desktop PCs: compact...

The Acer Aspire X3400 is a budget PC that's inexpensive enough to make it a compelling - but not perfect - package.

All in all, it's not the best machine on the market, but you could do a lot worse.

Good processor capability, runs as quiet as a mouse. Also has decent storage. I've got the terabyte version and I've only just filled quarter of it

Graphics chip tends to get hot very quickly. I voided my warranty by adding a couple more cooling fans. Also there is no built-it support for overclocking the CPU. I'ts not massively important, but it's a feature I would use if I could.The stock power...

Faster & easy to use than the ASUS

It works !!!! thats all i want, i replaced a ASUS piece of junk that would loose hard drive every month

Make sure you install the 64 bit drivers for your printer , i had a hard time with a lexmark driver until i found out it was a 32 bitNot ACER's fault Lexmark site is not too clear

Acer Aspire x3400 best value computer ”

 

I recently bought a Acer X3400-U2012. I have done much research trying to find the best computer for $500 or less. This is a hard price range especially with new technology. This did leave quite a few options actually. This computers main use was for...

Worst PC ever bought

 

I bought this PC back in march 2011. At forst the computer seemed ok, good speed, easy to use. Then the problems started. The PC used to switch itself down and when you went to turn it back on the power light flickered, the fans inside started up but...
