Solid product
Very happy-shipping was prompt & product worked out of the box.--have only had small issues w/Windows 10, after experience w/Windows7 & Chrome (wife still prefers Chrome) Wehave found Cortana the voice Assistant to be very helpful, when neither of us thought it would matter. Screen picture quality is fine-really don't know what people expect, especially at under $400.. SOUND IS WAY BETTER THAN EXPECTED, & WE BOTH LOVE OUR MUSIC.. Everything works & is well laid out. The speed is like greased lightning, compared to our old equipment I appreciate the ease of serviceability offer by Acer on the bottom-only 3 screws.
On the downside : it took us about 2 weeks to remove almost all the "bloatware", once we knew what some of them were-we kept very little. Simply too much time was involved here & would appreciate a cut of at least 50%.
Even tho we don't need it yet, we would have appreciated 2 gb more ram, & a backlit keyboard.-we would have been willing to pay more!
I am 69 & the wife is 62-and we are NOT techies, but folks who consider a computer to be a necessary evil/

Exceeds expectations for the price
Bought this as a gift for my dad.. he just needed something to surf the web and play videos. I bought this along with a 256GB ADATA SSD ($55) that I immediately installed with no issues. The panel at the back has 3 screws that need to be removed and has a notch on one side that can be used to pry it open, it requires a little pressure to pop out but not too much. You will find a m.2 slot to pop in a SATA3 ssd. The retaining screw is included.

Once the SSD is installed you need to go into disk management (Start > type "Disk Management") and format the new SSD drive as NTFS and it will assign a drive letter etc.

After that plug in a USB flash drive and download Windows 10. I created installable media on the USB flash drive, then went into the BIOS (press F2 at the Acer logo) and changed the boot order to USB, restart and follow the prompts to install on the new SSD. When you are ready to reboot remove the USB and it will boot into the new Win10 on the SSD, you may get a menu that gives you the option to choose the boot drive. To remove the mutliple boot options start msconfig (Start > type "Msconfig") Boot tab and delete the HDD boot option. Then you can reformat the HDD.

Quick observations -
Display - I think it's fine, has classic TN panel issues but that is fully expected at this price point. If you're looking at the display head on then it has a nice picture, brightness is average but overall it's acceptable. For an entry level laptop I would say the Display is acceptable. Pics of direct and off angle are attached in low light indoors conditions.

HDD - Do not even think of using this laptop with the supplied HDD, it is a slow as hell... using an SSD makes the performance increase about 1000% so the only way I would use this is with installing an SSD. The boot time with the HDD is about 1-2 minutes, with an SSD it's about 5-7 seconds so I make my point!!! The Crystal Diskmark scores for the SSD and HDD are attached to see the difference.

Trackpad - I just use an external mouse, my favorite is the M187 wireless from Logitech, mini mouse that costs $10... I hate all trackpads even on laptops that cost 4 times the price of this so just get an external mouse.

Build quality - I would say that it is really nice, a bit flimsy may be but laptops are all flimsy, I have a $1000 surface that I don't think I would want to test it's toughness by dropping it so I think it's silly to debate toughness on a laptop, they are all relatively delicate - the Acer is well put together and looks nice.

Battery life - pretty great, I got about 8 hours of continuous use which is phenomenal.

Given the price this is a crazy good deal and most definitely exceeds expectations.
