Review Acer Aspire 7745G Notebook

 

Multimedia delight & display frustration. Acer presents a 17.3" m

Impressive touchpad; Good application and gaming performance; BluRay-Drive; Long battery life; Adjustable graphics

Average display (contrast, limited viewing angle); Unstable notebook lid; Sensitive surface; No ExpressCard, Firewire & eSATA; Radeon HD 5850 only with DDR3-VRAM

A better display: The viewing angles are highly limited, the black value is too high and the contrast too low.

Acer Aspire 7745-5632

 

If the most important aspects of a desktop replacement laptop for you are a large screen and a good keyboard, Acer's affordable Aspire 7745-5632 may be the machine you're looking for. Its 17.3-inch display is easy on the eyes and its full-size keyboard...

Great screen ; Nice input ergonomics

Poor performance

Its overall performance is pedestrian, but otherwise this laptop offers you a lot of bang for your buck.

Acer Aspire AS7745G-6214

 

The AS7745G-6214 comes with a small battery (45WH), which drained the fastest in this group, only lasting 2 hours 32 minutes. You can make a case that media center laptops won't stray very far from an outlet, but that didn't stop the Dell Studio 17...

A fast quad-core processor. 8GB of memory. Good graphics performance. Likable typing experience. Blu-ray drive included

Small battery yielded an atrocious battery score. Using last year's design. Resolution maxes out at 720p

Acer makes great media centers, but it didn't put much effort into the Acer Aspire AS7745G-6214.

Acer Aspire 7745G review

 

The 17.3-inch Acer Aspire 7745G has many plus points, including its attractive appearance and decent performance. Its let down, though, by the poor vertical viewing angle of its screen.

Slick design ; Good overall performance ; Decent speakers

Below-average screen ; Not really suitable for gaming

The Acer Aspire 7745G may not be the fastest performer, but it's still got enough horsepower under the bonnet to handle heavy multitasking. We also like the classy, business-like design and the impressive keyboard and trackpad. Its Achilles heel is its...

Acer Aspire 7745G

 

This is a 17.3inch notebook, in fact quite a nice powerful notebook that verges onto a Desktop replacement. With that size of screen it is only really something to be moved for long distances by private transport unless you go to the gym a lot.

It is currently available from the first link below for £754.54 and this price includes free weekday delivery. Their site also offers a free full copy of BullGuard Internet security and not the McAfee trial on the unit that I had

This 2nd hard drive thing is STUPID!

 

Can't understand why they would put slow memory and slow hard drive in a system with a fast processor. Acer support is the worst, makes Dell look great, may return it just for that reason because would hate to have a real problem and have to deal with...

Fast Processor, decent video card,HDMI port, full keyboard. I like the trackpad although had to speed it up all the way for it to act nice

Slow primary hard drive and NO Acer support on second hard drive bay! 2nd bay is why I gave up having an eSATA port. Called them with the numbers from previous post and they won't even talk to you about the parts. Manual is worthless! If I can't get...

Awesome Laptop

 

Honestly i read some of these reviews and i am shocked at what people say. 5400 rpm hard-drive? well what do you expect, Look at the price of the unit. Shaggy video while gaming? That's probably because you have tons of bloatware that you have not...

Fast i7 CPU, Blue ray player, Supports up to 16 gigs of memory, Dedicated Graphics Card, 17 inch scree

How could I get the 3 parts from acer?

 

Does anyone have ideas about how to get these 3 parts?

The price is good

How could I order these 3 parts from acer to mount the 2rd hdd into the drive bay ; I just call the acer service, they say you should order it from there 3rd parties

Consumer review by:

Laptop OK, Acer cust. support BAD

 

Acer should not have advertised the 2nd hd bay as one of its features. Customers either have to be so lucky or is willing to go through the pain in getting the 2nd hd bay parts. So if you plan to buy this laptop because of the 2nd hd support, think...

Good price for these features. 4 memory slots. 2nd hd bay (see cons below though)

1) I am not as lucky as the other 7745 owners who got he 2nd hd parts for free. I notice that some 7445 owners got the parts for free from Acer. I called Acer cust support and they told me that getting the 2nd hd part is considered an upgrade, so you...

Got it for the wife

 

Harder than I thought to find a good case with wheels to fit the larger screen. I eventually went with an item not advertised as a laptop case, but looks and works the same; even better because it carries all the books too. Check out "Swiss Gear" luggage.

My wife needed a laptop for school, while this provides many functions not needed for school - She loves it! Easy to use out of the box, very little configuration needed, beautiful 17" screen shows Blu-ray movies with almost no CPU effort. Very good...

Blu-ray drive is a little noisy when it is first loaded, after that it does quiet down
