Acer Aspire 5

2.5
Verdict: The Acer Aspire 5 is a 15.6-inch desktop-replacement laptop that gives you a lot for your $629, but tops it with something you should never settle for at this price: a 1,366-by-768 non-IPS screen.
Pros: Ample memory and storage including SSD. USB-C port. Great battery life
Cons: Dismal display

Acer Aspire 5 A515-51 review – an excellent and affordable mid-range 15-inch laptop

4.0
Verdict: The Acer Aspire 5 is one of the best budget full-size laptops you can find in stores today. It checks most of the right boxes: well built, slim and fairly light, gets a decent keyboard, an IPS screen and modern hardware, performs well, runs cool and quiet and lasts for a long while on a charge.

Acer Aspire 5: An affordable laptop with some key flaws

4.0
Verdict: The Acer Aspire 5 sits in Acer's ‘everyday computing' range and it's the epitome of the no-nonsense laptop. It's a little on the chunky side, not especially attractive to look at and, yet, it delivers the goods when it comes to performance and usability.
Pros: Good value, Great performance at this price point, Nice keyboard
Cons: Awful display, Chunky design

Acer Aspire 5 A515-51G-53V6 Review

Verdict: While it's thicker and heavier than we'd like and it suffers from an iffy display, the Optane memory-equipped Acer Aspire 5 delivers impressive quad-core performance for hundreds less than its ultraportable competitors.

Acer Aspire 5 Review

3.0
Verdict: Build quality, lightweight gaming performance, and productivity chops are what separate the Acer Aspire 5 from some other budget laptop alternatives. The display sets it back, though, with a dimness and lack of contrast that makes using it far less pleasant than it would be otherwise.
Pros: Solid processor performance, Low price for a solid state drive, Decent build quality for the money, Plethora of ports
Cons: Screen is dim and seriously lacks in colors and contrast, Battery life could be better, Keyboard isn't backlit

Acer Aspire 5

4.0
Verdict: The Aspire lineup is Acer's everyday, middle-of-the-road range of laptops. Available in 15.6-inch or 17-inch variants, these models aren't as thin and light as the company's Swift laptops. Nevertheless, they offer good all-round performance, at prices ranging from £470 to £850.
Pros: Smart design, Good all-round performance, Keeps cool and quiet
Cons: A515 version has poor screen, Cramped cursor keys, No keyboard backlight

NO BACKLIT KEYBOARD!!!

5.0
Verdict: So, upon purchase it worked like a dream. Epic render distance and low everything else worked at 60 fps on Fortnite. Took 5 minutes to set up. But one thing was wrong. We noticed that the backlit keyboard was missing. After searching we found out that it no longer comes with a backlit keyboard.

Slow Laptop

5.0
Verdict: I bought this laptop for college, I have very few programs installed on this laptop but it has started to get slower each day. It now runs worse than my parents 6 year old laptop that has about 8 functioning keys. Firefox, Microsoft word, and even Task Manager constantly crash.
Pros: Cheap, worked for a few months
Cons: Extremely slow, programs do not respond

Great piece of kit for the price

4.0
Verdict: I chose an Acer model as I'd had one previously that served me extremely well for 10 years before purchasing this one. Setting up was easy, no issues at all. It's light, very fast and the battery lasts a good few days on medium use. Definitely would recommend

Year and half

5.0
Verdict: Well it was great for the year and a half it worked. Was watching a video on it and it made a crazy sound and shut down. Will boot to bios sometimes and some times not. Had it checked and was determined the motherboard was bad. Can't say I'll be buying an acer again.

In CinemaBench, I got a 75.08 on openGL and on Cpu stress test I got a score of 526. The build quality is very sturdy. a bit of a fingerprint magnet inside but feels super premium.

Good specs but not great in reality

5.0
Verdict: Works well for office or general use but there are a couple of issues: -It doesn't sleep properly. Often it was on after sleep was selected -There isn't really any way to fix screen bleed -It doesn't explain when the graphics card kicks in (or if it is on all the time it is a battery waste)

So far so good

4.0
Verdict: After a week's worth of use, no problems to report - I removed all the bloatware right away to help. I'm not a techie, so these comments are based on "regular folk" usage. I prefer big screens in laptops even though this makes them less portable aka not exactly lightweight.
