I love my computer!!!! Acer is a new product for me and I did not think I was going to like it at first. The only thing I do not like about it is the time and sometimes the date do not keep correct. This has been a problem since day one but yes it was worth the price and I would and do recommend the product. Thank you Acer!
I recently purchased an Acer AX3300-U1322 (PT.SBX02.013) PC Desktop and have been very satisfied. I am always hesitant when purchasing computer hardware but I was overdue for an upgrade from my earlier desktop - a Dell - which had worked well but was starting to show its age.
The new Acer I purchased is so fast and has all the features that I felt like I needed. Here are the details:
* 2.6GHz AMD Athlon II X4 Quad-Core Processor 620z
* 4GB DDR2 SDRAM Memory
* 1TB Serial ATA Hard Drive
* Microsoft Windows 7 Premium 64-bit Edition
* 16X DVD _R/RW SuperMulti Drive
* 9 2.0 USB Ports (5 Front/4 Rear)
This is a slim, compact computer that is perfect for small, cramped quarters. Even though I have plenty of room, I appreciate the smaller size as it allows me to place to computer right on my desk rather than on the floor. This make access to the ports, DVD drive, etc. much easier.
Set up was very easy and didn't present any problems. It does come with some trial offer software and other programs that aren't needed. You will probably want to spend a few minutes cleaning these things up when you go through the setup process.
My biggest complaint with the Acer is the blue power indicator light. It is rather large and wraps around most of the top and some of the side of the computer tower. It is a thin strip but when your computer goes into sleep mode the light blinks and it is bright enough to be a distraction in a dark room.
My only other complaint is that the DVD drive is an upright, slot style and it will not run the mini discs that some smaller electronic devices use for their drivers and/or installation software. For example, my Philips MP3 player came with the installation software on a mini-disc and I had to figure out a way to get the software onto my new computer in order to access all the MP3 features. There are a few different ways to work around this problem so it isn't a huge negative but I thought it was worth mentioning.
Over all this is a nice computer with lots of storage and plenty of speed for the average home user.
