Acer Aspire Z3-605-UR22 review: An all-in-one with a sleek look and slow performance

 

The Acer Aspire Z3-605-UR22 may look sleek, slim and streamlined, but it's only skin deep—it lagged far behind in our benchmarks.

Comfortable mouse and keyboard ; Slim, space-saving design ; Quick startup

Weak performance ; Oversaturated display ; Poor price/performance ratio

Acer's Aspire Z3-605-UR22 is an attractive machine, but its performance leaves us wanting.

Acer Aspire Z3-605 review

 

Though the Aspire Z3 offers a beautiful display and functional design, below-average performance hampers its value is.

Acer’s Aspire Z3-605 is not the kind of product people will swoon over. No detective dramas will feature it in the background; no spenders will buy it to impress their friends. But that doesn’t mean the Aspire Z3 is undeserving of respect. Simple,...

Acer Aspire AZ3-605-UR23

 

The Acer Aspire AZ3-605-UR23 has a lot of intelligent features we'd like to see on most if not all all-in-one desktop PCs in the future.

Front-mounted I/O ports. 10-point touch screen. HDMI-in. Spacious hard drive.

No Blu-ray. Some added software/bloatware. Wonky gesture control.

The Acer Aspire AZ3-605-UR23 is a very good media consumption device. It looks nice, has well-thought out features, and has a nice price tag. If you need a moderately large screen to view online videos in a bedroom or a dorm room, this is your system....

Acer Aspire Z3-605-UR21 Review

 

Affordable ; Vivid 1080p touch screen ; Comfortable full-size keyboard

Muddled audio ; Oddly positioned webcam ; Sluggish performance ; Excessive bloatware

The Acer Aspire Z3-605-UR21 offers a 23-inch 1080p touch screen for just $729, but other family-friendly all-in-ones provide a better value.

Gorgeous 1080p display, Quiet operation, Audio output from Harman Kardon speakers impresses

Drab design, ULV processor holds back performance

If the Z3 offered a price incentive against similarly configured all-in-ones, we might recommend it for budget shoppers looking for a basic, space-saving system for dorm rooms or cramped home offices. As it stands, we prefer Acer's better-looking...

Acer Aspire Z3-605-UR23 Review and Ratings

 

It's all right as a media consumption device, but if you've got a $1,000 budget for a 23-inch touch-screen all-in-one desktop, you can find better-looking, better-performing options than the Acer Aspire Z3-605-UR23.

Gorgeous 1080p display ; Quiet operation ; Audio output from Harman Kardon speakers impresses

Drab design ; ULV processor holds back performance

The Acer Aspire Z3-605-UR23 features one of Intel's ULV processors in the form of the 1.8GHz Core i5-3337U. This ultrabook chip is more efficient than a standard-voltage desktop CPU such as the 3.0GHz Core i5-3330 in the Asus ET2300INTI, as well as a...

Acer Aspire AZ3-605-UR23

 

The Acer Aspire AZ3-605-UR23 is a solid all-in-one desktop PC that's great for playing games and watching movies.

It comes with an HDMI-in connection that allows you to use the PC in a variety of ways, even as just an extra monitor

It doesn't have that many USB ports, so you can't connect that many devices to your PC at once

The Acer Aspire AZ3-605-UR23 is a good all-in-one desktop that has plenty of space to store your movie collections and music.

Acer Aspire Z3 review

 

This all-in-one PC is built for looks, not power

Gorgeous HD touchscreen ; Loaded with features ; Affordable price point

Seriously underpowered ; Lots of screen glare ; HDMI-in works unreliably

While the Acer Aspire Z3 has a beautiful screen for watching video, this underpowered PC isn't good for much else.
