As a side note, one of the reasons I dislike purchasing computers as opposed to building them, is all of the bloatware that manufacturers load up on them. And while this system had just as much as I expected, it was easy to remove it. I was particularly surprised at how easily it was to remove the included anti-virus software as that often times is the biggest pain.
I've got this PC connected to my 46" Samsung LCD HDTV. If I set this computer to run at the highest resolution (which would be 1080p) the windows desktop goes beyond the display of the TV. So the edges of the image are cropped off. My TV doesn't offer any setting to fix this, which is frustrating. Additionally frustrating is that this higher resolution is the only one that my TV will allow adjustments on. Meaning that, if I select the next lowest resolution, the TV will not allow me to make color modifications, or turn on the 120hz option. This is a tad frustrating, but in truth, I think this is a TV issue, not a PC issue. But if you intend to connect this to a Samsung TV you might encounter similar problems.
Also, if you want to be able to install additional RAM, this IS the model you want. On the purchase page Amazon had a link for an Acer which they claimed was the newer version. It had a faster processor, and the same RAM, but it was limited to a maximum of 4GB. This PC is upgradeable to 16GB according to the Acer website. So that's a plus in my book. And while I didn't install more RAM, this was something I considered as a selling point. This is information you can really only get from copy and pasting the model number into Google and finding the link to the manufacturer page.
The plethora of (8) USB ports, 2 of which are USB 3.0, should be enough for most people. The included HDMI port is great for attaching to my flat panel TV, which I plan on doing in the near future. There is no built in wifi, but for the price point, you can easily add a card or USB adapter (just hope you have better luck than my initial try!).
Bottom line, I am glad I bought it and love the smaller form factor and am getting used to the vertical DVD/CD ROM drive. It has burned several DVD movies with no problem, as well as music CD's, so I'm guessing it is as stable as a regular horizontal device.
I had a long webchat with Acer Customer Service to pin down the aforesaid memory expansion modules which was I am quite sure an international dialog and which became amusing at times with respect to repeating the question several different ways to get the point across. In the end, the tech couldn't really pin down the details of the required modules by suggested part no., but did tell me the current installed configuration and how it could be expanded. Bottom line - at least there is someone to talk to regarding service with respect to this PC.Read more ›
