Acer's 18.4-inch Aspire 8920G laptop gets reviewed

 

First things first: just in case that headline didn't really sink in, this is an 18.4-inch laptop. In other words, those of you with even the slightest of back problems should probably just pass this one right on by. If you're still with us, ...

Aspire 8920

 

The $2599 Acer Aspire 8920 is a whole lotta laptop, crammed with so many features that we kept checking for a kitchen sink. It has a humongous screen, a Blu-ray drive, six speakers, a giant hard drive, a top-flight processor, and a gadget-laden...

Giant-sized screen Huge hard drive

No FireWire port Display could be brighter

If you need a basic, workhorse desktop replacement, you have cheaper, more sensible choices than the Acer Aspire 8920. But if flashy looks and big-screen entertainment are your goals, the 8920 deserves a spot on your short list

Acer Aspire 8920G

 

The Acer Aspire 8920G has the performance tools and a big, honkin' screen to wow home-theater aficionados.

Unprecedented 18.4-inch widescreen. Top-notch performance scores. 4GB of RAM. Resolution is precisely 1080p. Blu-ray burner built in. Relatively light considering the screen size. CineTouch controls are intuitive. Excellent sound quality.

Design induces yawning. Feature set is underwhelming. Pricey. Sub-par battery life. ; Watch the Acer Aspire 8920G Video Review!

Acer Aspire 8920 review: Acer Aspire 8920

 

Acer Aspire 8920

First 18-inch display we've seen; true 16:9 aspect ratio; inventive media control panel mimics a remote control.

Higher-end model is twice as much as lower-end version, despite minimal specification differences; minor Blu-ray control issues; we expected better bass from a system with a subwoofer.

With Blu-ray and a true 1080p display, the 18-inch Acer Aspire 8920 is a movie fan's dream, but we'd go for the cheaper of Acers' two preconfigured models.

Review Acer Aspire 8920G notebook

 

Mobile living room.We reviewed the bigger 18” 16:9 notebook aft

Felitious, attractive design; Good stability and processing of the case; HDMI port and BluRay drive; Bright 16:9 HD display with good contrast ratio; Acceptable 3D performance with Geforce 9650M GS graphics; Very low temperature of the case

Keyboard is getting used to; Volume control via CineDash Media Console very unprecise; Very heavily reflecting display

The maximum battery runtime of this notebook is up to 3 hours, but the laptop is made for stationary usage.

Invasion of the large-screen notebooks: Bigger really can be better

 

Entertainment and business multimedia go hand in hand with these three big notebooks, but which one is a true blockbuster?

Great performance and battery life, multimedia controls, speakers, articulated arm hinge

Slow TV tuner, Media Center software problems, no FM radio

On top of the usual array of benchmarks, I added several tests to gauge the multimedia and entertainment abilities of these notebooks. After measuring, weighing and examining every nook and cranny of each system, each was given a thorough workout.

Review: Acer Aspire Gemstone Blue AS8920-6671

 

The Test Center's look at the Acer Aspire Gemstone Blue might be summed up in a word: Wow.

Acer Aspire Gemstone Blue (8920G)

 

Big screen, Blu-ray player, HDMI, digital TV tuner, space for a second hard drive

HDMI output can't be scaled by the graphics card, CineDash panel is awkward to use, bright power LEDs cannot be dimmed, no FireWire

With an 18.4in high-definition screen, a 5.1 speaker configuration, a digital TV tuner and a Blu-ray player built-in, the Gemstone Blue is almost like a complete home theatre setup. It's fairly easy to use and it's a good performer, so it's a good...

Acer Aspire 8920G 18.4in Blu-ray Notebook

 

Is this the ideal Blu-ray notebook? With a Full HD, 16:9 ratio screen and Dolby Home Theatre audio it certainly sounds promising.

Acer Aspire 8920G-934G46Bn notebook

 

Acer has never shied away from cramming new technology into their notebooks. With an impressive spec sheet, the Acer Aspire 8920G, from the Gemstone Blue series, falls distinctly into the desktop replacement, offering a dedicated range of media...

Screen, Blu-ray player, HDMI

Weight, fusion of colours and materials a bit much, backlight bleed, Fn volume controls removed, sound not up to its billing

The design offers some interesting features: the CineDash, that you either love or loath, certainly takes a chunk of space and if you don’t use it often, could seem like a waste. Removal of the Fn volume option seems an unnecessary move. The fusion of...
