Review: Acer Aspire 5738DG 3-D Notebook

 

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

Super-cheap, with overall impressive specs for its price level. Outstanding performance, even as a gaming rig

3-D technology, as implemented here, is years away from prime time. Bafflingly stupid design choices. Dim screen backlighting. Heavy

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 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.

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.

Acer Aspire AS5738DG Review: 3D On the Small Screen

 

Acer, I see right through you; you meant this $800 3D PC for the college stoner.

the experience for viewing non-3D images? A well-performing budget notebook the Aspire AS5738DG is, but as a 3D theater and gaming console it leaves a bit more to be desired

Acer Aspire 5738PG - 15.6in Touch-Screen Laptop

 

Is adding a multi-touch display to an ordinary laptop a gimmick or an inspired move?

Acer Aspire 5738PG notebook

 

Acer's Aspire 5738PG is a touchscreen laptop with a difference. Unlike the previous machines we've seen with touch-sensitive displays, this isn't a Tablet PC – so the screen doesn't rotate at all. Instead, the multi-gesture touch panel is intended to...

A well-specced and powerful laptop, good keyboard, responsive screen

Poor screen hinges, glossy display is a poor choice, touchscreen doesn’t actually add that much to usability

The Acer Aspire 5738PG is a good laptop, offering decent performance in a semi-portable chassis. The stand-out feature here is obviously the touchscreen, and it’s a tricky call as to how much it actually has to offer.
