I finally had to upgrade my old machine because the slow speed of it was driving me nuts!

This one is great - does exactly what I want and makes up for my slow download speed.

It's given me 2 mild heart attacks though by opening and presenting me with a blank screen and telling me it couldn't find the disc (or something was wrong with the disc). However I switched it off and back on and everything was fine. It could have been me as I'm not very techie but am inclined to 'mess' with things I know nothing about!

Updated to Windows 8.1 and like it!

So far I love this machine....

Well it all looked good. Nice and compact, great price, quiet, fast with its intel core i7. But it took a fortnight out of my life with its 'failure to read disk' messages. It also managed to delete six months worth of irreplaceable photos. Charming .

I contacted Acer who told me to send it to them for repair. I explained that it was new, I didn't want it repaired, I wanted it replaced. They told me they wouldn't do that. As you may imagine, I was steaming.

Happily, having bought it on Amazon, Acer were forced to give me my money back. Amazon even came to pick it up. I have now bought a Dell with a similar spec for a similar price instead. Good old reliable Dell, I should never have left you...

Fantastic computer,great value for money,beautiful design,however one problem; It went dead 24 hours after arriving on my doorstep. I then had the expense and hassle of returning it to Amazon. At the end of transaction I was 12 pounds out of pocket due to the discrepancy between Amazon's postage refund and real postage costs.this is the second defective computer Amazon have sent me. I will not buy any more electrical products from this company. I have heard simular complaints from other Amazon clients. So, Amazon if you want customer loyalty, do not send out defective products and provide adequate compensation.

i,ve given the product five stars, as it does exactly what it says on the tin, too many add ons & apps for me though, but when i get used to it i,m sure it,ll be superb. really i only need a basic no frills system, but things have progressed so much since i bought my previous one, but some tips on setting it up & using it would have been helpful, as i,m a bit of a technophobe, & i do sometimes find it hard to keep up with new technology

Size did matter to me over performance. Delivered as promised.

Would recommend these computers if you are doing mundane work, emails letters and spreadsheets. If you are wanting to play high powered games with mind blowing graphics or high quality graphic rendering you need to look elsewhere.

As long as it has plenty of air to breathe it should last the normal user as long as any other computer. Despite it's size it still needs to breathe enough air to cool the processor and hard drive otherwise it will fail.

Does what is says on the box and performs as expected but if it goes wrong not so good. You end up talking to people possibly in India who don't speak English well and when eventually you get authorisation to send the PC back they argue over things like serial numbers and model. Eventually it took over three weeks to get the PC back from repair. probably wont buy Acer again.

It's a decent all-round PC but I had two problems out of the box:

1. The VGA port was not active (and was covered up with a weird blocker). I had to buy a DVI converter and used that instead.

2. The PS2 ports do not appear to be active either, so the supplied the keyboard would not work. It draws power and the NumLock light flashes but no further response.

Had a look in BIOS but no joy yet - will chase up with Acer and see if any useful feedback comes of it . Other than that it's a good enough machine, although it comes with all the usual bloatware that most manufacturers stick on new PCs.

first one didn't start up, returned, second one, windows wouldn't update and so prevented quick start up, poor support from Acer, and so returned product. Would not buy Acer again, although Amazon was brilliant in handling the returns and refund
