Acer Aspire V3-572G Laptop Review

 

Acer's new Aspire V3 laptop is designed for casual gamers. The laptop looks cool with its brushed metallic finish on the top of the body. It is packed with features, which enable you to use the device for both work

Build quality, brushed metallic finish looks beautiful, bright display, performance, features

Noise visible in webcam in indoor or low-light conditions

This beautifully crafted laptop is built for both works and play, backed with powerful hardware that makes it the right machine for running different apps simultaneously and games like Thief. It can easily handle heavy software or games without any...

Awesome little laptop!!!

 

I'd recommend this for anyone on a budget that still wants a great little machine especially since it has 2GB dedicated video memory. I can actually play Battlefield 4 on it quite easily by simply turning down the texturing an a few other things but...

ZERO issues with wifi etc and NO lag like others are complaining about. Uninstall all the proprietary Acer software and it'll be 40% faster and none of that Acer junk is needed anyways. Also, swap the internal 5400 RPM 1TB Harddrive for an SSD and...

Not many cons other than I wish the keyboard was a lightup one. I use a very tine 3" usb led flex light I found on A.M.A.Z.O.N which is awesome. It's just short enough to do the job but not too long that it gets in the way like many others out there.

One problem after another

 

Tl;Dr: not happy about Wifi and sound! Given the cons weighted against the pros, I would have been happy. A solid 4 Eggs. But there have been so many problems. I have intermittent connectivity issues ( every 30-45 minutes) where I loose internet...

Pro: - It's pretty quick. Decent boot time for an HDD.

Cons: - Display is ok (At Best!). - I don't like the feel of the keys or track pad. I've used worse, but, I've also used better.

Good general purpose laptop

 

The Atheros wifi hasn't been any trouble as some have mentioned, but I've had issues with Atheros cards before. I highly recommend the replacement of the internal HD with a SSD. Before the upgrade this machine would lag and freeze at times, and now...

Bought for around $550, which is an absolute bargain. The i5 is more than enough to handle homework and browsing. The 840m isn't the strongest by far, but can run minecraft, the sims, cities skylines, and even arma 3 reasonably.

Screen is what you'd expect for a low mid tier machine, viewing angles are okay, and colors are washed out. The harddrive is slower than other 5400rpm drives out there. The biggest con of all is the way the internals have been packaged. Removing the...

Acer's customer support is almost as bad as their laptops!

 

Dedicated graphics

Acer customer support is garbage, I have had to send it back for factory repairs 2 times after owning it for 6 months

Looks like the only good thing Acer is good at is their motherboards

 

I would recommend the product for the specs, but I would not purchase it due to the problems. I would not purchase this product again. I have had WAY too many problems. If I could change something about the product it would be that the people that work...

Good specs for the price at the time

You won't ever be able to use it. I've sent this product back so many times that the warranty ran out. The only thing that they did was reset my OS after selling me a laptop with hard drive failure. 11/10 would not buy again.

Average performance low-end gaming laptop

 

- Purchased in Oct 2014, updated review Jan 2016: Laptop still runs at the same level and only gets warm when propped on the lap and used for 3+ hours. Still has good battery life, though I am usually plugged in using AC adapter and prefer a dim screen...

- Sometimes on sale for $529 - 549 - Arrived neatly packaged from the Newegg warehouse - Thin and light; doesn't feel like 5.6 lbs - Great sound with Dolby Digital Plus Home Theater - Battery small and light, lasted 5 hr 35 min until 10% power. Used...

- Computer feels slow. Not sure if issue is CPU, HDD or Windows 8, but sometimes the desktop doesn't show newly downloaded items unless I refresh. Simply typing in MS Word, Facebook or Steam lags. Opening Windows Explorer seems slower than it should...

Sufficient Laptop. Faulty Hardware.

 

I got this computer because of it was cheap for what I needed. Since then, the price has significantly increased. It is definitely worth investing more money to get a better machine all around, but if you can't, this was sufficient (not anymore due to...

- Graphics card was good enough to play every game in my steam library - Works fine as a general purpose computer - Track pad is not the best but not the worst - Has UEFI

- SHIPPED WITH BAD RAM. After about 2 or 3 months, one of the sticks of RAM went defective. I used this as an opportunity to upgrade the RAM to 16gb. Note to future upgraders - The RAM is on the back of the motherboard. It is extremely inconvenient. -...

Mouse Pad Torture

 

You get a fairly solid machine for the price.

Why oh why is the mouse pad to the left side of the laptop. It should be centered on computers body not to the left. It's very annoying to the left as a right handed person. Perhaps this is just an issue for me, but it's pure torture. It runs much...

The best computer I've owned, when it works

 

This is a very good computer. Really, it is. It handled everything I needed it to like a champ. I don't know if I'd buy it again though, and certainly not at the current price it's at now. I don't know if my issues were due to a manufacturer defect or...

- Dedicated GPU that's surprisingly good for gaming - I've had no issues with running GTA V at full speed with medium graphics settings. - Great balance of performance and battery life - Surprisingly good speaker quality for a laptop - The Dolby...

- For the first month after purchasing, I dealt with the built-in Atheros wifi card continuously dropping my connection, an issue that persisted upon multiple driver installs and multiple clean formats and reinstalls of Windows. I gave up and bought a...
