Review Acer Aspire 5552G Notebook

 

Structured. Simplicity is convincing. The mainstream 15.6" all-ro ...

Quiet and cool; Resistant surfaces; Good touchpad; Low idle power consumption

Short battery life; Poor 3D performance; TFT not AR coated; Poor contrasts; TFT too dark (outdoors); Spongy keys; Few interfaces

The courage to use a plastic look without aluminum or aluminum imitation

A bright, vibrant screen and strong usability can't mask the weak performance

Good screen ; Usability ; Connectivity

Weak performance ; Battery life ; Ugly chassis

Acer Aspire 5552 review

 

If you're looking for an inexpensive laptop you don't have to limit yourself to a netbook's small screen and keyboard. There are plenty of more powerful and flexible laptops available for not a huge amount extra. One example is Acer's Aspire 5552, a...

Fair performance and a reasonable price make this a fantastic alternative to a high-end netbook.

Acer Aspire 5552G

 

Decent port complement ; Good performance

Battery life suffers due to dedicated graphics ; No Bluetooth ; No 5GHz radio ; Mono speaker

The Aspire 5552G provides a decent package and a good whack of performance. We'd love more battery life and a 5GHz radio in there, but for the price it does reasonably well.

Great student laptop

 

Battery life: around 3 hours.

Good price for quality. Light and durable - has served me for over a year. Plays current generation games at low graphics settings

After about 3-4 months, the hard-drive would unexpectedly fails to be detected at start up. Resetting the computer usually resolves within 2-3 tries. Speakers are quiet and low quality, but nothing a headset can't fix. The biggest con is the keyboard....

Horrible Heat Management

 

Fast, efficient

Extreme heat issues, even with a notebook cooler. Horrible customer service. Hard drive crashed at 11 months of ownership, and Acer hasn't responded yet. Bought a replacement hard drive here out of my own pocket just to get the laptop up again. I am...

Absolutely Perfect

 

If you're looking for a cheap computer, there is no comparable laptop on the market, with that processor and graphics card you are getting the greatest bang for your buck, most complaints are due to people not understanding how little they paid. It is...

I can't imagine a better computer for the price. It has a powerful processor and a decent graphics card to back it up. Bought it to play Skyrim and Fallout NV and it sure as hell did that with only minor lag. Not sure if I'd buy it for gaming, but it's...

Most people claimed it overheats. I only recently started monitoring its temperature. With a cooling platform it idles around 45-51 Celsius and during intense gaming for several hours it can hover around 70 Celcius, but that's not really a problem...

would buy again

Very good price, Great for just surfing the web and watching youtube came with everything that said in the ad ; reinstalled windows 7 on this and is a pretty good laptop

not really a con as this laptop is made for just surfing the web but if you plan on buying this for anytype of gaming then your gonna be a sad panda this laptop is for business people and or people who just wanna do facebook and youtube

Awesome Acer

 

Great Laptop, Especially for the price. Great performance nice specs, looks awesome, long battery life

It gets kinda of hot during gaming, had it shutdown once due to this, built myself a cooler for it and hasn't happened again. The built in graphics are a bit limited

Intermittent Freezing

 

Would be an excellent buy if wasn't for the random freezing. Will explore the manufacturers warranty.

Does what a laptop should do, web browsing, email, etc ; Price ; 4 Gb RAM ; Windows 7 ; DVD DL Burner

It gets pretty hot ; It freezes randomly during use. This is inconvenient when streaming movies, music, etc. as the whole system freezes for about 20-30 seconds and some applications are forced closed. The heat may be the reason ; Struggles when there...
