Consumer review by: Garry (reevoo.com)

Acer Aspire X3960

 

Very easy set up and so far very good performance. I have an Acer laptop and as I was impressed with that I decided to buy this as a desktop unit.

the construction of the mini tower does appear a bit flimsy but I guess as long as the internal parts are quality thats the most important bit.

Acer Aspire X3960

 

Solid metal case, small footprint, good performance for the money, especially including a monitor.

Monitor resolution is a little low (900 lines I think) which is fine for our use, but too low for HD content. Monitor speakers lack power.
