For me this PC is an excellent fit. My old machine was woefully short on memory and was running out of hard disc space. To fend-off the day when I would have to upgrade again I was happy to find this PC with 10 GB of DDRAM and a 2T hard drive. I also wanted an Intel i5 quad-core processor, for improved performance as well as to put-off the day for replacement. Note that there are different i5 processors available. The-3450 processor on this machine is better than many less capable ones; it's a 3rd generation processor. There are quite a few PC's being sold with the older, less capable, 2nd generation type, and worst yet, most are being sold with Intel i3 processors. None of the other manufacturers were offering a similar package as this Acer PC; at least I could not find one.

My Acer came with a Hitachi 7200 RPM, 6 Gb/s HDD which is connected to a SATA 6 Gb/s motherboard port, very nice. There are 5 more SATA 3 Gb/s ports on the motherboard available for other use. Internally there is room for one more HDD, so I installed a new Western Digital Caviar Green SATA 6Gb/s 2T drive to effectively match the existing HDD. As the remaining available SATA ports are all 3 GB/s I had to use one of those. As the 2nd HDD is for backup only, this is not that big a deal. The 300 watt power supply has sufficient cabling to make the connection to a 2nd HDD, but a separate SATA cable had to be purchased to connect the 2nd HDD to the motherboard.

The motherboard can support an additional 6 GB of DDRAM for a total of 16 GB. So it's unlikely it will be memory limited any time soon.

This PC comes with 6 USB ports on the back of the case, two are USB 3.0 and four are USB 2.0. It also has 4 more USB ports on the top near the front, two are USB 3.0 and two are USB 2.0.

Pretty nice, but:

There are two things I wish were not true:

Top mounted USB connectors are at the bottom of a shallow pool that will confine any spilled liquid and, a level shows, will direct the spilled liquid into the open connectors. That cannot be good for the machine, but is part of a quite attractive look.

The graphics for this third generation i5 processor is only HD2500, not the acclaimed new one I prefer (HD4000). This was not easy to discover directly from Acer nor from the machine itself, though it is confirmed by the low Aero "Windows Experience Index".

Windows shows the Acer has similar performance (7.5, 7.5, 5.0, 6.4, 5.9) to my second generation i5 machine from June 2011 (7.4, 7.6, 5.1, 5.8, 5.9). Both machines are quiet.

The new Acer has USB3 and USB2. Writing 8 GB from a new Toshiba external 3.5 to the Acer on USB-2 took 4 min 50 sec. Doing the same via USB-3 took 2 min 10 sec.

I wanted a spare Win 7 (64 bit) machine as I already know where all the Win 7 controls are and most of my old software runs under that version of windows. A local retailer had a big stock of these and Win 7 is about to be out of fashion. They suddenly dropped their advertised price from the high 600s to 499. That got me to buy this particular machine.

I got mine from tiger direct.
Pro's- Windows 7 Home Premium, The i5-3450 rates very well in benchmarks, Lots of RAM, Lots of USB Ports, Room to upgrade

Only 300W power supply, Amazon sells a 480W upgrade for the PowerMan fsu300-tha(1)
DDR3 1333 Mhz, when the board supports 1600 Mhz
Limited to one monitor and one TV. Not two monitors, but space to add a extra video card.

I plan on adding a better video card, upgrading the power supply and considering DDR3-1600Mhz, at the 16GB Maximum. For about $200 more this will be a top notch i5, and will blow away some of those low end i7's. Also If you want to upgrade to the Ivy Bridge i7-3770 you can.

This is how it rates in windows experience from 1.0 to 7.9

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3450 CPU @ 3.10GHz - 7.5
Memory (RAM) 10.0 GB - 7.6
Graphics Intel(R) HD Graphics - 4.8
Gaming graphics 1696 MB Total available graphics memory - 6.3

:UPDATE: a month in, still a great system. I did a PSU Upgrade, added a blu-ray drive, got 16GB of ddr3 12800, usb video capture device. A few other usb accessories. Will go with a 650 Ti CPU when it gets cheaper.

One thing to note, in the BIOS there is some graphics adjustments to be made for performance improvements. After those adjustments and installing the faster ram, my video performance improved quite a bit, able to have streaming video on both the monitor and tv as extended desktop, it was lagging a little previous to bios fix and ram upgrade.

Did more research on the motherboard & chipset etc. The B75 is a nice chipset with, as others said "some limitations". The B75 chipset usually doesn't allow for overclocking.

Bought this to replace and outdated Dell I had been running for 5+ years.

There are some great features here. Lots of USB slots where you need them.

It's FAST. At least 2x faster than my old box.

Massive 2 terabyte drive.


The first negative comment I have for this computer is related to the monitor hookup. I like to use 2 monitors and that's just not possible with this computer out of the box. That wasn't true of the last couple office computers I've purchased, so I didn't even think to look for it. Fortunately, I was able to take my video card out of my old Dell and put it in this one.

Secondly, there is nearly ZERO room for expansion. When I added my old video card I used the one and only expansion slot.

None of this is to say that I'm not happy. The computer seems well built and quiet. I've had it about a month now and I'm very pleased.
