ACER Aspire 5738 3D Laptop

 

This year is the year of 3D. It will be featured in every product, including laptops. This new laptop by Acer is no ordinary model, the simple addition of a letter "D" in the model name has added another dimension to the viewing. Ok I'm bored of that...

At an MOP of Rs. 43,506 this laptop comes priced at a decent mid point in the market, as the internal system is better than average, the aesthetics and ergonomics are superb, and the 3D is not a gimmick, it's just a fun thing to use, something that...

Review Acer Aspire 5738DG 3D Notebook

 

The third dimension. Acer's 3D notebook is aimed at lovers of fil

3D effect for films; Robust casing; Cool surfaces; Good touchpad and solid keyboard

Poor graphical performance; 3D effect strongly dependent on viewing angle; No eSATA or Firewire; Poor sound quality

A 3D notebook for 800 euros is a first. Serious gamers should watch for the Asus G51J 3D in the next few months. This uses LCD shutter glasses and Nvidia Vision for a 3D experience.

Inexpensive, Powerful Notebook Gains Nothing in 3-D

 

Horrendous 3-D technology almost masks this notebook's virtues, which include impressive specs, excellent performance and a low price.

Acer Aspire 5738DG - A Review of the Acer Aspire 5738DG

 

Attractive design, Fun 3D screen for movies and mainstream games, Above-average graphics performance, Loud and clear speakers

Struggles with the most demanding games, Hard to find 3D-enabled apps, Below-average battery life, Limited tech support hours

The wide base of the 5738DG affords a roomy and comfortable keyboard with firm, chiclet-style keys that made it easy to tap out documents, e-mails, and URLs. We appreciated the large Shift keys and full number pad. Using the touchpad, we could...

Acer Aspire 5738DG-6165

 

The Acer Aspire 5738DG-6165 grafts a 3D panel onto a mainstream laptop. It's a gimmick, a feature that caters to maybe 1 percent of the computing population--and at first I was completely skeptical. People are offering 3D as a crowd-pleasing extra in...

3D LCD panel works well on some content ; Good value

Touchpad button feels a little cheap ; Poor battery life

The Aspire 5738DG-6165 is a good all-purpose laptop that also happens to slip in a very cool, but very niche, little feature.

Acer Aspire 5738PG - A Review of the Acer Aspire 5738PG

 

Attractive design, Good graphics performance, Easy touchscreen navigation, Loud and clear speakers

Crude, glitchy Acer touch interface, Below-average battery life, Limited tech support hours

The wide base affords a roomy and comfortable keyboard with firm, chiclet-style keys that made it easy to tap out documents, e-mails, and URLs. We appreciated the large Shift keys and full number pad. Using the touchpad, we could two-finger swipe...

Acer Aspire 5738DG-6165

 

It's not as bad as you think, though, particularly with a third-party tool and conversion times. There's no waiting involved for the conversions to happen—they're instantaneous. The only action required is that you have to open your photos, videos, and...

TriDef's 3D screen delivered a worthwhile 3D experience. Speedy despite using a budget processor. Discrete graphics. Plenty of USB ports. Inexpensive

Adding 3D depth to videos is a work in progress. Plain design ; Watch our Acer Aspire 5738DG-6165 video review

Acer's Aspire 5738DG-6165 is a very good budget desktop replacement to begin with; the fact that it offers 3D rendering is just icing on the cake.
