Decent machine for the price

My only issue with this laptop is the screen is lacking my 5 year old Hp seems to have a better quality screen that I paid half the amount for I'm going to tinker with it for a few days but If i can't get it to at least look as good as my old laptop or better I will most likely return this considering the price I paid

Horrible quality

Bought this laptop, turned it on and the trackpad was totally broken. So I brought it back and exchanged it for another. Trackpad worked on this one. However this one was MISSING the 1tb hard drive out of it. Even the staff at best buy were shocked! Best buy was amazing at getting me a different laptop all together as I obviously lost all confidence in this Acer laptop. Spend a little extra and go with a better quality brand. Cause all these acer laptops were obviously assembled on a Friday at the end of the day on a long weekend.

Tested 3 Gaming Laptops - Returned 2 of 3. Love this 1.

I tested 3 laptops from bestbuy and returned the first 2. The first one was the 17" ASUS ROG 16gb ram, 128 ssd, i7 7700 hq, it was solid, cool looking but too heavy to be a portable laptop. I decided to switch it for the 15" version, the problem was this didn't have an a ssd it had an ssHd which is a hybrid drive and had 12gb ram instead of 16. This laptop performed poorly, not only was it slow to start, it lagged between processes and when I tried to play pubg the fan noise sounded so loud it made me nauseous. The fan noise was unbearable, although the ASUS looked really cool I couldn't handle its slowness or its loud fan noise. Enter the ACER Nitro 5. I decided to switch my asus rog 15" for this laptop. i7 7700 hq, 16gb ram, 256 ssd, 1tb hdd, 1050ti video card. POWERFUL. I love this laptop in comparison to the previous two models i tried. so much that I'm writing a review on it here! Its not as cool-looking, but its super fast. Im using it for programming applications (mySQL, R, Weka...) it handles these programs with ease. I also use it to play PUBG on low settings and it runs smoothly! If i switch it to medium it will lag but low is good enough for this game. The fan noise is BEARABLE unlike the Asus ROG 15" . It kicks in when im playing but the sound doesn't leak into my mic like it was with the asus. All in all, if you want a great gaming laptop go with this one. I mean Ive only had it for about a month now but so far so good!

bad battery and sound had crackaling noise

I bought this computer @ boxing day sales. It seemed like a good deal as the acer virtual reality head set came with it free and it had strong specs. The computer seemed fast and worked very good until I had two problems. The battery would only last about an hour when using after a full charge, and the sound started having a crackling noise. This noise happened both with the speakers and while having headphones plugged in. Laptop was returned.
