Review Acer Aspire 5920G Notebook

 

Acer goes gaming? We had the chance to review one of the currentl

Attractive new design ; Very stable and robust case ; Well equipped with interfaces ; User-friendly keyboard ; Bright display, measured parameters alright ; Passable performance ; Good sound ; Excellent battery runtime

Partly disadvantageous order of ports (USB, Audio) ; Noisy touchpad buttons ; Display reflects heavily ; Unsteady fan, high surface temperatures

Aspire 5920-6954

 

The Acer Aspire 5920-6954 just slips under the $1000 mark, at $999 (as of 2/7/08); it's worth every penny. Except for business applications, which it lacks, this Vista Home Premium laptop has just about everything home-office buyers could ask for in a...

Exceptionally nice keyboard Good graphics/gaming capabilities

On the heavy side

The cost of applications will make the Acer Aspire 5920-6954 spill significantly over $1000, but if you can afford to splurge a bit, it brings a little extra panache to your home office

Acer Aspire 5920 User Review

 

After looking for a desktop replacement notebook with gaming capabilities I found the Acer 5920-6313 offered unparalleled specs for the money. At the time of purchase it beat even the Inspiron 1520 when compared in a spec-to-spec analysis. Acer: 1,...

Best bang for the buck

LCD bright but not brilliant ; No sufficient CPU/GPU throttling ; Annoying fan

Despite its many flaws the Acer Aspire 5920 is one of the best buys today thanks to its rich specification, wealth of features and relative low price. I believe a proper new bios would solve the fan issue and CPU management, and a new Nvidia driver...

Imagine if you stayed awake for 96 hours straight with only Jolt Cola, Southern Comfort, and Corn Nuts for sustenance. Now imagine that after those...

Respectable features and solid performance. Decent battery life (2 hours, 20 minutes). Very loud speakers. Packed with high-def features

At 7 pounds, the heaviest 15.4-inch notebook we’ve seen all year. Webcam on spring-mounted lid latch (meant to resemble a car door) is just a bad idea. Slow hard drive. Integrated video/media suite as clunky as the hardware. A 0 price cut would make...

Aspire 5920

 

Armed with a fast processor and solid speakers, the $1999 (as of July 24, 2007) Acer Aspire 5920G is great for both work and entertainment. It bears Acer's tritone "gemstone" case design, which looks stylish without being overly ornate. The screen is...

Shortcut-loaded multimedia keyboard Subwoofer-supported speakers

Screen has slight glare problem Short battery life

This Windows Vista Ultimate home notebook lacks bundled applications, but it has power and style to spare. Short-list this one if you're on the prowl for a trendy home desktop replacement

Though it's bulky, the Acer Aspire 5920 makes a great choice for buyers who want both a media-friendly laptop and a portable HD DVD player that plugs into their home theatre.

High-end features, including HD DVD drive, HDMI-out, S/PDIF, and Dolby Home Theatre sound, Handy media controls, Decent speakers, Lengthy battery life, Comfortable keyboard, Easy-to-use system management software

Heavy, Native resolution not as high as we'd like, Display wobbles easily, Glossy screen finish results in distracting reflections, Lacks a fingerprint reader

Acer Aspire 5920 review:

 

When we reviewed the Blu-ray-equipped Sony VAIO FZ180 a few months ago, we wondered how big the market for 15.4-inch, high-def laptop could really be. Apparently, the market is big enough to warrant an entry from the other side of the fence: the Acer...

Acer Aspire 5920G

 

Acer includes a comprehensive bundled media software package in the Arcade Deluxe. The DV wizard lets you capture video directly from your camcorder or from the webcam. VideoMagician sorts and organizes all your media content, similar to what Windows...

Affordable HD media center. Built-in HD DVD-ROM. HDMI-Out port. Dolby 5.1 surround sound. High-quality webcam

Acer's Arcade Deluxe doesn't play back HD DVD titles very well. Screen resolution could be a little higher

The Aspire 5920G is one of the most affordable HD DVD media centers available. It's also pleasing to the eye, thanks to its new Gemstone design.
