Great Price on this Computer


This computer works very well; it has plenty of power for my home office. My only complaint is the noisy fan. I can stop the noise buy tipping the computer top to the left a little and back, but it start again after a while. I replaced an Acer with a...

Great HTPC


Unlike the other reviewer, I didn't have any network issues. After it posted, it required user to press a key since the checksum for the OS failed due to serious clock skew. Once this was fixed, it worked flawlessly! It's extremely silent, encodes...

Great condition. Lacked network Adapter


Computer was recieved. is in great condition, but it did not come with network driver which made the comp useless. Forced to call Manufacture and wait another 7-10 days to get the adapter installed. Not satified what. so. ever.

Very Nice


I bought this for one reason only: to play or stream hi-def blu-ray rips. It plays hi-def content wonderfully. I read that the integrated i3 graphics could not properly play back 24p hi-def content, but I have not encountered this issue. It will also...

QUIET! Nice packaging, 6 gb RAM, 1 TB HDD. i3 is not a powerhouse but it is zippy enough. 1080p blu-ray rips look perfect; it WILL process 24p correctly when using the latest Intel drivers

Windows hesitates to boot for some reason--doesnt quit, just stalls for a minute or so on Windows logo screen. No wireless built in (not a big deal for me, I have a hard line close by). Blu-ray reader and wireless keyboard/mouse would have been...

i checked cmos jumper configurations and nothing is out of the ordinary, this PC is just DOA. additionally the RMA page says this product is not eligible for RMA. yeah we will see about that during call hours tomorrow.

I wish there was some pros

Dead out of the box. plugged it in, pressed the power button & nothing happens, no sound no fan spin up no light

Mini ITX


Acer's fix would be to ship the entire unit to a depot for PSU replacement--they don't consider a power supply to be an end-user replaceable part. Acer America support seems to lack knowledge of their product line (they kept referring ot my 'notebook...

Core i3 and Intel HD graphics are plenty to handle web pages and household use. Boatload of USB ports. Win7x64 is a huuuuuge improvement on Vista. On time delivery in good condition--good packaging. This thing fits most anywhere with the Mini ITX form...

Mini ITX means an oddly shaped power supply that would be difficult to upgrade. The Delta Electronics 220 that ships seems underpowered, and mine is very noisy. Not NewEgg's fault, but Acer America support still costs an egg because that's where NewEgg...

High expecations until I turned it on.


I love newegg, I recommend them to the world however this is just unacceptable. I'm pretty sure it's not newegg's fault but when you turn on a computer you just bought you want it to at least get to desktop. Maybe it's Acer, maybe it's MSFT. Either way...

I was looking forward to testing out the i3, the 6gb of ram, etc. however I wasn't granted the pleasure of getting past the boot logo

power button pressed ; Boot logo, followed by ; Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause ; Info: Windows failed to load because the kernal is missing, or corrupt ; Not even safe mode boots. Enough said

Awesome pc


I installed a sapphire 5570 video card and it runs beautifully most newer games. I'm installing a core I7 in this baby and hopefully it will run with this small psu. I also installed an asus wireless card and it made this pc perfect

Hd playback strong processor good amount of ram. I don't understand why anyone would complain about the ram slots being full. Pc can be upgraded easily to be a decent gaming pc

Low wattage power supply and not being able to install a double slot low profile graphics card only capable of single slot
