  • from St Albert, ON

Exccellent for the price

I have bought four of these over the last year. Replaced all the hard drives with SSD's. Grandkids have used (abused) them constantly for their games and whatever else kids do. They all have run perfectly and fast with absolutely no problems If you want a good computer on the cheap - This is it!!!

  • from Burnaby

Bad mobo

Unreliable! It's fast when it boots. The mobo wouldn't startup after 4 weeks. Geek Squad said mobo failed. Needed to ship to depot for repair.

Terrible Computer

I purchased this computer the day before Christmas. It kept shutting down on its own at random times. Took it back to Best Buy about 25 days later. They replaced it with another. That one started shutting down also. On average it shuts down and restarts about once a day. Sometimes shortly after starting, sometimes it runs for a few hours and then shuts down and restarts. Very frustrating. Best Buy says bring it back and look at a different model. Problem is every time you have the data transferred over, you have to register for all the software and different programs you have through other companies like Steam or Microsoft. That all takes time and I don't have a lot of time to waste. Plus you lose your computer for at least 24 hours while they transfer the data over. My last computer I bought was a HP at Staples. Maybe I have to go there for a decent computer.

Very good computer, quiet and fast

After returning a HP computer I bought on boxing day, I bought this Acer computer on Dec 30, 2017. It's been a month, so far very good. Installed some software (such as photoshop, office) and some games, it runs perfectly. I also tried the 4k Video on youtube, no lagging at all. This generation of i5 processor is much much better than the early generations of i7. Quality/price ratio is very high. I am very satisfied with it.

Whatever you do avoid this computer. There is something seriously wrong with this machine. My cat walked past the front of it and all of a sudden I have green screen, I never seen green screen before and I have been working with computers since the 70's. There is something up with the case and chassis, as the only thing I can figure is it is not bonded to protect from static electricity. This computer also has a nasty habit of crashing and freezing. It also, every once in a while likes to take it's time doing tasks. This is not easy for me to write as I have always liked and had no problems with the 2 Acer laptops and 1 other desktop that I have owned over the years. Even friends that I have recommend Acer to have not had problems. But, from the look of the comments and my own personal experience with this machine, all I can say is never again.

good and quiet computer, Poor Canada post delivery

I have three Acers now, all good. Current Acer used for 2+ years and still as fast as new. So when I want to add one more desktop, Acer is my first choice. Got this new one during black Friday for daily office use. Specifications are very similar to my previous Acer. Though this new I5-7400 is a little slow than I5-6400(I do not know the reason), but it's still very fast and good. Besides fast, it's super quiet. So far so good. The headache is not from this product, it's from Canada post delivery. Not all delivery persons are responsible. The delivery person in my area at that time did not deliver upstairs. He left a notice card without what time it will arrive the post office. I have to pick it up at a post office. Finally, I got the big box after two attempts at the post office on the next day. This is my first purchase online at BB and it might be my only online purchase with BB. Go to BB store or purchase from other retailers with reliable delivery saves time.

never agaun acer

do not get acer. all i can say. garbage

  • from Montreal, QC

Just terrible

Bought one during the black Friday. Received and the tower wouldn't even boot. Returned it without issues to a local BB to get another one. The this time it booted but kept getting critical errors after ACER splash screen. Return it for a refund. First and last time I get an ACER computer.

  • from Medicine Hat, AB


This one was a great purchase. Just an excellent all around computer. I don't game at all but it works perfectly with you-tube, neflix and world cam streaming. Very fast and none of the lag or jitters that I used experience on my 3rd gen i7 HP laptop. I've had this computer for 3 months now and not one issue. Highly recommend!

  • from Toronto, ON

Horrible Computer

THis computer freezes and shuts down and I'd rather buy a new one than pay to ship it back to Acer. This is the worst performing PC I've ever had and I've had many. It's complete garbage.

  • from Orleans, ON


I had HP, Twice and both last 10 years, i decided to try ACER last year, and its slow and cra shes, tuen off when it crashes, DO NOT GET ACER TRUST ME,

  • from Ottawa

Very poor graphics- unpleasant to read text

I would be happy with this computer, but display of text bothered my eyes and gave me a headache. I was not able to set it to clear, crisp display. There was no problem to return it. Before you buy it, check display in the store if you are ok with it.

Excellent Computer!

I got this computer about a week ago. It works flawlessly. The CPU is quite fast compared to my i7 from a couple generations of CPUs ago (more than twice as fast as my laptop with an i7-740QM CPU). The system is very quiet. I have not noticed any significant lag or hiccups throwing any software at it. All my Adobe products run on it fast and smooth. I have installed 100+ software on it since I got it and every one of them work exceptionally well. The inclusion of WiFi adapter was a pleasant surprise though. I was not expecting a desktop tower to have a build-in WiFi adapter, but this system does have a WiFi adapter that works out of the box. It comes pre-loaded with Windows 10 Home edition, which is a great OS. I have tested all of the USB ports and other available hardware on this system and all of them work as expected. In conclusion, I am happy with this purchase and can certainly recommend this machine to anyone who needs to do lots of office work and light to medium loads of graphic design (you can always add a dedicated graphic card to this machine later if your work becomes more graphic and video editing intensive).

Just perfect

I did nor have any problem with this computer since I got it one month ago. I plugged it and he is working since then. :) I keep him on to get access to it via TeamViewer, so one month without turning it off. So far, so good! If you need a good and reliable computer, go for it! I like it. It has everything I need for my office work. I use on it: (Photoshop, Acrobat, Maya, all MS products, etc.) It is quite, it is nice like design, it is not a gaming computer, of course, but it is just perfect for what I need. No issues with the WiFi, Bluetooth works perfectly! No problem with drivers, perfect acquisition. To cut the long story short, if you need a computer, not a station to send rockets in the space, buy it without any hesitation. Bluetooth offers me the possibility to connect my BT mouse, so I just saved one USB port. In front there are 2 USB 3.0 ports which are always free. The integrated WiFi is just perfect, it also helps me to keep my USB plugs empty. Before I was using all my ports for Bluetooth, WiFi dongle etc. So, a good computer for a reasonable price. Just check on internet how much is a 7th generation of an i5 processor. And by the way!!! I was expecting the delivery much later than I received it. So BestBuy was correct, and offered me a good service and a good product. I will definitely recommend this product and will definitely come back for any other acquisitions in the future.

Nice Desktop

I am very satisfied with my desktop.

  • from cambridge


amazing, love this cpu. just like all the bad reviews I had the same problem it kept restarting every 1 min. I DoD some research and found out it's because the wifi driver is not up to date even when you do a Windows update. so I downloaded it directly from Intel and problem was fixed immediately.!!!!!!

  • from The Dump (where acer belongs)

Bad Product With Terrible Customer Support.

I got this computer in store and it kept crashing so I called the customer support and they told me it was my anti virus' fault even though the crashes started before I got the anti virus. They tried to sell me overpriced anti virus even though I knew it would do nothing so I said goodbye and pledged to never buy another acer desktop.

Steals fam

Throw a GPU in the system and boom... a gaming pc.

  • from Waterloo, ON

More than fast enough for every day use

You will not be able to add extra hard drives into this case because there are only two SATA ports on the motherboard. One is for the DVD drive. The other is for the hard drive, which is fastened to the side of the case. The only practical upgrade would be to install an M.2 2280 SATA SSD into the slot on the motherboard. I did that, after starting up the system, by 1) creating a recovery USB stick (16GB required), 2) installing the SATA SSD, and 3) booting from the recovery usb to install Windows onto the SSD. Thereafter I used the original hard drive for extra file storage, including for Windows "File History" backup. With the SSD installed, the system is phenomenally fast for everyday tasks.

  • from Vancouver

Absolutely pathetic motherboard.

This tower has only 2 SATA slots on it and both are taken by the HDD and DVD. It will not allow for an additional internal drive to be installed. Also you can say goodbye to the ability to upgrade the optical drive to Blu-ray. This PC lasted an hour in my house before being packaged for return.

  • from Toronto, ON


Every time I used it, it would encounter a problem and needed to switch off. I just had to return it.

  • from Canada

It's OK computer.

So far it is working well but HDD is very noisy. The system property is showing WD HDD so I think HDD is reliable but some structure inside of the box is probably not good. If you plan to use this computer at quiet room, you may need to consider this issue. Box is huge but it is not going to be a big problem for me. Audio output is great. If you rip CD's with loss less quality, and listen music by good head phone, you will find something special.

  • from etobicoke, ON

Latest processor and fast

The case is too big. Other than that it's fast, wifi works great. On sale under 600.

  • from Drummondville, QC


Had to return to store 2 times and finally exchange. It shot down 2 ou 3 times a day by itself.

  • from Vancouver, BC

works well

I replaced my 7 year old desktop with this and it seems to work well. Set up was easy although windows 10 activation needed some effort. This computer is quiet and seems fast although I don't do challenging applications like games. CG

  • from Calgary, AB

Worth the cost

Got this on sale and I do NOT regret it. Awesome machine. Threw in an SSD as well as a graphics card and I'm highly impressed.

  • from new york


it sucks

  • from Charlottetown

Very good computer

It's a very good and fast computer does everything I need and much more:)

  • from London, ON

Ports not as listed

Has 1 HDMI and 1 VGA. there is no DVI port-not a problem with the computer, but with the specs that are listed for this computer.

  • from Toronto, ON


i bought this pc yesterday and so far so good. It is definitely a huge step up from the pc i had before but my issue i can't seem to install my graphics card in this pc. every time i put it in i can't get a display either from the integrated graphics or when i try to connect to the graphics card. the pc just stays powered on. but other than that i would recommend this pc but i give it a slightly lower rating due to this issue.

  • from Ottawa, ON

No DVI Output

I bought product yesterday and at first use, appears to be a great product. Unfortunately, when I checked the online specs, it states that there is DVI output as well as VGA and HDMI. The DVI Output was one of the features that made me choose this product. When I opened the box, I realized that there was no DVI output. I live over 100 km from the nearest store and I chose not to go back and keep this computer. BestBuy please verify the specs you put for your product because they can be misleading. I will rank this product 3 of 5... It is still a great product and Acer has proven to me to be an extremely great computer with its after sales service. But frankly, when choosing a product online, we should be able to trust the validity of the details stated... Thanks !!!
