Acer Complaint - Do not by Acer products
I strong urge anyone buying a lap top to steer clear of the Aspire line and away from Acer all together. I purchased this thing from Wal-Mart around the end of last year as the result of a promotion the store was having. I do understand that the low price meant that I was not getting a top of the line machine, but I did expect something that worked better than some of the 3 year old lap tops that I have as back ups.
This has turned out the be the slowest and worst performing machines I have ever owned. My biggest problem is that I cannot use any multimedia capture card with this unit. I have tried several different brands and none of them work.
They work on every other brand but this one. So far Acer has not resolved the problem and I may be forced to go out and get a new lap top for the sole purpose of running the external multimedia cards.
I have been getting a lot of feedback that buying an Acer product was a huge mistake and I can say that I fully agree with the comments.
Avoid Acer like the plague.
