Acer Extensa 7620Z review

 

An outstandingly large laptop for this price point that sadly lacks performance

Low price ; Good screen ; Well-built

Limited performance ; Budget spec

A good quality desktop replacement for those on a budget

Completely Satisfied

 

I am in no way wanting to downgrade newegg, this was the one and only time I have had trouble with them, and I really think it was the automated system not the customer service. This machine is a great buy for the average user, or just someone wanting...

Big screen, quiet, no dead pixles, lots of settings, clear web cam, tons of extras, office 2007 trail is nice, gadgetts are cool, speakers are ok, touch pad is not too crazy, doesn't seem to run hot, power management settings are nice, e management...

Neweggs ordering process was botched all the way through. Never had this problem with them before. They said they would upgrade shipping for all the problems they had and did not. The web cam has to have outside software added for video chat and video...

Excellent Laptop!

 

It uses Vista 32-bit edition, so you really don't need to upgrade the memory (you can, but an extra gigabyte is useless to 32-bit). If you are looking for XP drivers, search Acer's European website for 7620 drivers; they are all there. The memory, and...

17" screen, 3gb of memory, 250gb HD! Acer tools and software that are actually useful! Nice extra useful shortcut buttons on the left side of the keyboard instead of above keyboard. Vista doesn't run like garbage on it. Oh and full size keyboard

No backup media, and I was a bit confused on how to produce backup media. Has a Bluetooth switch, however no Bluetooth module is installed. There was no fingerprint module on mine

Great Laptop !!!!

 

Glad I took the plunge. Newegg is on my favorites list

Great customer service. Ordered on Monday am, was unwrapping the box Wednesday afternoon ; I searched high and low for a great buy on a 17" laptop and this is it. We will be using it as our main home computer. Set up was easy and fast. Not a lot of...

Sound is a tad tinny, but hardly worth talking about

I was wondering if anyone had compiled all the WINDOWS XP drivers for this product. The Acer website does not list all the XP drivers. Please contact me at darshahlu@gmail.com if anyone has information/drivers for Windows XP. (I do not want to kill...
