Excellent Gaming Computer

My previous Acer Aspire lasted over 9 years and has only recently started to give me trouble, so I had no hesitations with trying this great brand again. So far everything has been amazing. It boots up in seconds with the 128GB SSD, and the massive 3TB hard drive allows for plenty of storage space. Set up was a breeze although Windows 10 had a big update to install which took a little time, but there were no snags or glitches. Everything has been working perfect since day one. Pros: -Great value if you pick this up while on sale. -Very Quiet -Super fast Cons: -Would have rather had a 240 GB SSD and smaller HDD, which I think they could have easily done at the same price point. But this is really just a personal opinion.

No Fan

Amazing PC but it doesn't come with case fans so I had to buy some because the GPU and CPU were always at max temp.

great roblox pc

I was skeptical about this pc but once i play minecraft survival mode on it i was fascindated with getting 61 fps. My old pc could only run it with 60 fps. Then I started playing ROBLOX jailbreak with over 62 fps. I had clicked a link that told me that i was getting free robux and the amazing robux giver accidently deleted my system 32 but gave me my robux. Even tho my computer is broken i got 2 robux great pc.

Great overall PC

Got this PC on sale. Just what I was looking for in a desktop PC. Super fast, lots of storage and a SSD although they could have put in a 250GB. Runs very smooth and quiet. Well built on the inside with room for expansion. Only downside is they could have put a better keyboard and mouse in this bundle.

Not happy with the service after screen scrambled.

Purchased for my home office and first needed to buy a bigger hard drive. After installing the 1 TB SSD and installing it worked great for the next 30 days then on 01 01 2018 the screen stared to scramble. After several attempts to resolve the issue, I contacted Acer support. Spent the better part of the afternoon and evening doing all the suggested fixes and finally an 11:00 pm received the authorization to send the computer in for repair. Started to process the shipping and found it would take 150:00 freight to ship. Called support and they are sending a shipping label in 1 business day, 2 days to ship, 7-10 business days for repair, then return shipment. So I will be without that computer for about 3 weeks. not very good customer service!!!! Would not stay in business for long if I was to treat my customers like this. Will definitely be looking at a different brand of computer to use while this one is being serviced, then putting this one up for sale. I would stay away from Acer products based on the service.

Great computer

I was a little worried after reading the reviews but this computer is a amzing. It runs low graphics games like minecraft at over 1000 fps. I can play rainbow six siege, csgo and rust on high settings and get over 120 fps. It has a really good graphics card. Only complaint it is a little loud at times.

Great PC for the price

Got this while it was on sale for Christmas. Plays all my games on 144hz matching my monitor and the speed is fantastic because of the SSD. Honestly, Acer does have a bad reputation but I inspected all the parts and nothing was really cheaped out on. Just standard bloatware software which comes with most modern day popular brand names. One BIG THING: the website mentions is that in the specs it says DDR3 ram but it is actually DDR4 running 2400mhz. HDD is running at 7200 RPM and the GPU isn't a knockoff cheap model. Case isn't the most beautiful thing, but this pc is a beast for the price. Definitely recommend it.

  • from Surrey, BC

  • from Edmonton, AB

Great PC!

I was skeptical to buy this computer after reading the reviews, but it has treated me awesome so far! I've had it for over 2 weeks now and there are no problems whatsoever. I use it for producing music and nothing has ever crashed or had random restarts as some other reviews have said. Plus it has great specs, and is super fast! Would recommend.

Excellent Gaming Computer

Great computer for gaming. Plenty of processing power for World of Tanks at 120 Frames Per Second in HD with no added latency. Parallel task are a breeze. The SSD make startup very quick along quick running of apps.Configuration and Windows 10 quite simple and user friendly (this coming from a Windows 7 user). Avialable in store and at home same day. Nice...

  • from Brantford, ON

had to exchange for another

purchased this at a great sale price but unfortunately it would keep shutting off/crashing. We returned to store and they exchanged for a new one, but same thing happened with the new one. No idea why it would keep going to black screen, so we returned to store and got another make.

windows 10 restarts randomly

I returned my first acer aspire that was preloaded with mcafee - they replaced it with another pc exact same model and look that has Norton installed - both these computers restart and freeze up randomly during web browsing either edge or google chrome - it is extremely frustrating

  • from New Westminster, BC

over priced

2017 Nov - Dec isn't a good time to buy into a gaming desktop. price too high, 2018 spring or summer might be better timing.

  • from Ottawa, ON


when i got this pc it works really well i love its a great computer really good for editing streaming and quiet

  • from Calgary, AB


a lot of people are saying that a computer that is the exact same but white and is from a different company its so good but why not chose this computer it has more storage and it seems better it I've seen the other one and its stats its a horrible gaming pc even my friend who has a pc from there company says that the computer sucks and he would not buy again first he said it overheated than it started crashing than it just broke and the company didn't even refund him or give him a new computer so take my warning and i advise all of you to just buy this computer instead

  • from Burnaby, BC

Buyers beware!!!

Do not buy this desktop. This computer restarts itself randomly on multiple occasions whether you are browsing the web or doing whatever. Also it freezes a lot when browsing the web as well.

  • from Surrey BC
