Reviews around product (3.87 of 5)

  • Amazon is falsely promoting a more expensive product that will not work with this laptop.
  • The product is great for gaming, the only issue which i have faced as of now is the Laptop getting hot.
  • Amazon support really neglected on this matter, this product wasn't delivered as I was expecting, and all Amazon could do was give me a promotional $5 for the inconveniences, no actual resolution
  • This is a major issue that Amazon needs to be aware of because without this fix, everyone here has a faulty product.
  • Sadly, a product that is good but lasts 1 month is worth no more than 1 star

  • buyed this laptop from panama, like it so far, feels pretty solid and no problem so far, the screen isnt very bright but not a big deal and the sounds quuality its pretty good, saw all the negative reviews and i got none of those problem, the keyboard works fine, updated nvidia software throgh geforce experience, runs most game on the highest setting, laptop get hot when gaming so recomend to buy a coolerpad
  • After reading in 100 reviews that they didn't like the dim scree, I was expecting a horrible dark screen like some cheap chinese tablets
  • Ignore any reviews about the screen brightness and color not being the best, because I found everything about this Laptop to be first class
  • It could change this year if you want to see for yourself!- Potential upgrade required for BIOS, or incorrect version of GeForce programs: I saw a couple reviews complaining about this, and just like the most helpful review here, I did not have any hiccups or errors regarding the BIOS problem that another reviewer had

Reviews around fan noise (1.98 of 5)

  • The only problem I would say is possible heat constraints and or fan noise when gaming at max settings
  • Unit is also pretty quiet during regular use, I can’t hear any fan noise at all in the office
  • Fan noise did kick up quite a bit as expected (just like my desktop 970) but the pitch from the laptop is a bit higher so it more noticeable but not distracting unless you have game volume very low.
  • (Acer Aspire E 15) was a noob compared to this beastly computer

  • Also the windows....even with updates , bios, etc it gives MAJOR stutter, it gives 1 sec freeze when doing UAC prompt, when i click on battery icon, so basically the windows gets messed up when u have BOTH intel and NVIDIA display drivers on, If you turn off one of the displays windows works wonderful, When i spoke to Acer they told me disable intel driver permanently... got to be joking right
  • 2.there are usual windows 10 problems, bloatware, unneeded features, and driver and other things not be up to date
  • Had my unit about 2 weeks, and after a totally clean windows install (I recommend NOT using the drivers on ACER's site, I got notably worse performance and over all useless resource drain, I tried many combinations and as is with a clean install yielded the best results
