23/7 : The laptop is sitting in a box, still unusable. Basically an expensive paperweight. Report has been filed by Amazon engineer to provide with a replacement 24 hours back. Amazon has mentioned it will take upto 48 hours for a replacement order to be generated, so need to wait more time.
24/7 , 1:11AM : Still no update from Amazon and no return order has still been generated. Today will be Day 8 with a very costly paper weight and severe loss of production due to non availability of a working laptop. From the comments, I can see that there are many other happy customers who have bought this apparently so awaiting Amazon to sort this out so that I can post something positive.
24/7, 9am : Still no replacement order found in my profile. Again need to chase Amazon.
26/7 : A replacement was provided by Amazon for the faulty product after endless amount of contact and painful waiting period. The replaced product worked perfectly out of the box. The defective product was handed over to Amazon.
5* for the product overall
1* for the horrible experience
Also, now the product is selling for the same price it sold during the "sale" days, so no real benefit.
After one week of use, I found this purchase a value of money as -
Design : Lightweight (easy to carry) with aluminium finish, gives a premium look (refer image). Keyboard texture design is silky, figures slips on keys which is a little weird. Keystroke is harder than usual. and yes, it has back-lit keyboard.
Display: crisp and good visibility even at low light ( which increased battery life)
Sound: wow .. nice clear and loud enough for music with a little drum beats. Mostly i kept sound at 60-80%. TrueHarmony tech really does its job very well. But in case of movies/ you have to put headphone or external speakers.
Battery: It deliver about 6 hours of battery with office work, with music and work its about 5 hrs. Actually I didn't feel need of charger for office sitting.
Speed: With OS in SSD, IT boot within 5 secs which is ineradicable. No hate to wait to view desktop, just click the power button and VOLLA. HDD is slower compare to available in market, but as most of files and software can be put on 512 SDD, HDD is only being use for songs and movies thus speed doesn't matter
Only one USB 3.0.
5400 RPM HDD
NO Recovery OS Media provided
NVIDIA GeForce MX130 (Could have been mx150 or mx250)
But at this price and 512GB SDD we can't complain much.
Verdict: Overall recommended to buy. As what i was looking in a laptop :- portability, storage and battery in 15" laptop segment, I got more than I demanded within price. This is not a gaming laptop but a perfect work laptop.
Tip: Make sure you make system image after first boot as per instructions manual from ACER which will be usefull in system recovery if anything bad happens as no separate recovery media is provided.
Cons-built quality, sound, display quality.
Display is too bright and bluish. Not worth at this price point.
Display, Sound and built quality ruined the quality of the device.
* Sleek design
* Light weight
* Good specs
* Less price ( no laptop at this price range with the specs)
* Fast boot, thanks to ssd.
* Low sound even at full volume
* Only one usb3.0 port
* Bad keyboard layout and not sturdy. ( Has backlight which is not mentioned in the specs)
* Though the display is full hd. It is not punchy and less viewing angle.
Verdict: if u are not a serious programmer or gamer. Then opt for it.
