Crashing repeatedly within 24 hours of receipt and setup!!!!!! :(
Need manufacturers Warranty as soon as possible regarding the following product purchased on AlumiGogo on July 2, 2017. Received on July 5, 2017. Today is July 6, 2017
Computer is repeatedly crashing within ONE DAY of setup and use.
Acer will not assist.
We phoned Acer and they want us to take computer in to our local computer repair store. No. That's not acceptable.
The computer was JUST purchased!!!!
This is what I have to deal with within 24 hours for $1,176.59? Unacceptable.

This computer is fantastic, I have changed / upgraded a good amount already, but the stock setup is great, here are a few things to note:
- there is a m.2 slot on the motherboard and it DOES support NVMe
- The stock power supply was 450/500 watt that is really nice for a oem one
- The keyboard included sucked, just dont use it, the keys are really tell and have canyons or wells
- While it will be snug it will handle much longer graphics cards, I have a GTX 1080 from evga with the SSC cooler, and it seems to have a couple more inches that can clear, the issue is more with the power connectors almost hitting the case.
-The i7 is great, it has been running really well for me, I use it to encode movies and its encoding 1080p bluray quality movies with handbrake at 70-80 FPS. Its outstanding
- There are two big cons for me, I think this computer is really under powered RAM wise, this should come with 12 or 16gb, 8gb is really weak, for including a i7 and a 580, this should have a little more ram. The other issue was alot worse for me, I picked this computer because it had some great specs for the price AND it had a disc drive, I need a bluray drive all the time in my personal computer, I already had ordered a new bluray drive to replace this computers internal, I was sad to discover this desktops disc drive is a laptop drive, so I had to return the internal bluray drive I bought. Then I bought a laptop bluray drive to discover this case also needs to have a really narrow drive, so I ended up having to cut the front cover / panel to allow my laptop disc drive to work.

PC shuts itself off at completely random times, and their support is useless
At first glance, the specs of the PC appear to be a tremendous value for the money. However, excuse the cliche idiom, it is too good to be true. The graphics card and processor are subsidized by other, less reliable, parts. This PC shut itself off and restarted with the fans blasting while it was performing first time set-up (i.e. installing windows 10). After a call from their customer support, the PC did eventually get running. The next day, it shut itself off again. Whenever I tried to use it, it would shut itself off at completely random times.
I'm not an amateur with PCs, I just prefer prebuilts because I want a PC that works out of the box. Besides, I'd much rather spend an extra hour or two at work rather than spend several hours troubleshooting and building one myself. I checked the temp, the processor load, even plugged it straight into the wall. This PC would shut itself off while checking emails. I sent it back for repairs, where they kept the PC for two weeks plus the time for shipping before they shipped it back. Once I got it back, none of the problems had been solved. If you are going to keep my PC for that long it should be fixed by the time it gets back to me, unless your goal is to try and eat up time before I can request a refund.
Buy something else. I went to a local Best Buy and got an HP Omen instead once I got my refund.

The Preformace Of This Brand New Acer Is Amazing And Graphics Are Beautiful
My Return Window Closed On Feb 10, 2018, So I Feel That I Can Now Give A Review.
You Purchased This Item On January 8, 2018. Your Package Was Delivered On ( Delivered Jan 10, 2018 ). And It Actually Came One Day Early
Which Was An Excellent Surprise To Me. ( Thanks AlumiGogo For Excellent Service ). All Of This Being Said, No On To My Acer Reiew.
This Is My Second Acer Aspire. I Had My First On For Ten Years. I Only Gave $ 320.00 For It. Ten Years Ago Computers Were So Much More
Simple To Deal With. All I Ever Did With My First Acer Was Change The Graphics Card From The On-Board Graphics,
To A " AMD Saphire Radeon 5570 Graphics Card Which Ten Years Ago Only Cost Around One Hundred Dollars And Change. That Is All I Ever Did.
I Went On World Of Warcraft With That New Acer And Was Really Surprised As To The Performace Of The AMD Card. That Little Tiny Acer Was
Running At Around 150 FPS At High Settings. Not Bad Really For A Tiny Acer Computer Which I Really Did Not Have To Invest An Arm And A Leg
And Like I Stated, That Tiny Acer Lasted Me Ten Years. For A Four Hundred Dollar Investment, I Really Feel That I Got My Money Worth Out Of
My First Acer. But This Past Autmun After We Took Our Air Conditions Out And Put Them In Storage, We Here In New England Had A Really Hot
Heat Wave And My Apt. Got So Hot That My First Acer Simply Put Just Melted Down. It Got So Hot Inside Of My First Acer And The Plactic Housing
Turned So Brittle, That Plastic Was Falling Into The Housing And That's All It Took To Kill My First Acer.
This Happened While I Was On AlumiGogo Fire Watching A Movie, And I Never Saw " The Blue Screen Of Death Appear ". I Got Into A ReBoot And
Went Into The BIOS, And The Internal Core Temp Was Running At SomeWhere Between 120 Degrees To Around 150 Degrees, And We All Know
That Is Way Way Too Hot For Any Computer To Run, So My Ten Year Old Acer Just Melted Down And At That Point There Is No Saving Any
Computer After It OverHeats Like Mine Did !! So Stripped The Internal Workings Like Memory Sticks, 1000 GB Hard Drive, DVD Drive, And My
AMD Saphire Radeon Graphics Card Because My Old Acer I Already Know Is Heading For The Recycle Trash Dump And I Did Not Want To Risk
Anyone Getting A Hold Of Any Personal Information From My Old Acer. I Kept The Graphics Card, But Pretty Much EveryThing Else Was Junk,
The Hard Drive Was Damage, So I Figured EveryThing Else Was Damage Too. Today Ten Years Later Computers And Parts Cannot Be Found
For My Old Acer, Plus The Housing Was So Melted, The Plastcs Just Crumbled In My Fingers.
So What Does One Do When His Ten Year Old Acer Suffers " A Catastrophic MeltDown " Well One Junks It And Goes On His Long Long Search
For A New Computer. That Is Really One's Only Option !!
So That Was A Little History On My Last Acer And My Last Acer Just Sit In His Little Corner Near My 46 Inch RCA LCD TV ( This Is What I Use For
My Computer Screen ) And My Pioneer 7.1 Stero, And Near My AlumiGogo Fire. ( In Short, My Control Center For My Electronics ).
So Now To Begin My Search For A New Computer Which Lasted Around Two Months. Personally I Just Don't Buy The First Thing I See.
If I See A Computer I Like I Will Check Out The Target Computer For Weeks And Weeks, I Check The Good Reviews And The Bad Reviews. I Will
Go On YouTube And Watch All Of The Videos, And Will Do Google And Bing Searches. I Will Do EverThing Possible To Find Out As Much
Information That I Can On The Target Computer That I'm Thinking About Buying. For Me Buying A Computer Is A Serious Matter And These Days
A Person Has To Be Really Careful And Still There Is Really No Promise That A Person Still Won't Get A Bad Computer Even After All Of The
Information Collected On Just One Computer. In My Search I Must Have Looked At Over 30 Computers Maybe More. There Were So Many
Computers I Looked At That I Actually Lost Count. And Then I Came Upon This Acer Gaming Computer. The Other Two Acer Computers For
Around $300.00 And $400.00 Dollars Were Simply Just Not An Option. There Was Just Nothing To Them, And Came With Nothing To Speak Of.
Yes I Saw Almost Every Computer On AlumiGogo, Google, Bing, And All Of The Well Known Brand Named Stores. They Had Really Nice Machines,
But Their Prices Were Way Way OverPriced For The Very Same Computers On AlumiGogo. And Like I Started To Write,
( I Came Upon This Acer Gaming Computer ). Now After Looking At Computers On AlumiGogo For Weeks And Weeks, Hell Could Have Been
Months And Months. I Looked At Computers For So Long That I Simply Lost Track Of Time !! I Know For A Fact That During My Computer
Search That This Acer Was Nerer On AlumiGogo During My Computer, Or At Least This Computer Never Came Up On Any AlumiGogo Searchs, And
Then One Search After A Very Long Amount Of Time, ( We Are Talking About Doing AlumiGogo Computer Searchs All Night Long ) Almost 24/7
Around The Clock Searchs Until I Was So Tired That I Would Fall Asleep Holding My Mouse.
Now As I Started: This Acer Aspire Never Came Up On Any AlumiGogo Search For Months, And Then One Night I Finally Came Up On An AlumiGogo
Search I Preformed. I Was So Surprised To See This Acer Computer On My AlumiGogo Search. I Clicked On This Computer And Started Reading
The Stats, And Any And All Information I Could Cram Into My Exhausted Mind Of Mine. And After Reading The Opening Stats I Simply Could Not
Believe What Was Coming Inside Of This Machine. Everyone Already Knows What Is Inside My Computer By Just Reading My Review Title, So
No Need To List Any Parts ETC.
What Everyone Does Need To Know Is That In The Time I Have Owned My New Acer Is That " I HAVE NOT HAD ONE SINGLE PROBLEM "
Also : I HAVE NOT ADDED OR TAKEN AWAY FROM ANYTHING IN THIS NEW ACER MACHINE ". It Really Does Not Need AnyThing Extra.
My Fans In My New Acer Are So Quiet Even When I Running A Game On Ultra. I Am A Real " World Of WarCraft Fan " Actually That Is My Favorite
Game Of All Time. StarTrek On-Line Is My Second All Time Favorite Game. I Want To Play " OverWatch " But That Will Have To Wait Until I Have
More Funds To Buy " OverWatch " Next Week. I Havn't Really Played StarTrek OnLine Yet. I Reinstalled " StarTrek On-Line And Logged On To
Reset " StarTrek " Settings And Just Logged On The Reset Settings Just To See How " StarTrek On-Line " Would Respond To My New Computer
And It's New Settings. NeedLess To Say I Was Really Impressed. " Star-Trek On-Line Running At 180 FPS At ULTRA. That Is One Hell Of A Long
Way From What I Use To Get From My Ten Year Old Acer.
And " World Of WarCraft " Was A Thrill To Play. I Actually Spent One Week So Far Playing " World Of WarCraft ". My New Acer Runs
" World Of WarCraft " So Well It Is Amazing. I'm Running " World Of WarCraft " On Ultra At Also 175 To 180 FPS WithOut One Glitch. I Made Five
Avatars On " World Of WarCraft " Last Week And I Just One Week I Had All Five Avatars Up To lvl 20 So They Could All Have The Mount Riding
Skill That You Learn At lvl 20. The Game Runs So Excellent That All Five Avatars Made It To lvl 20 In Just 5 Days
And I Swear I Have Never Ever Been Able To Do That Before Or Even Come Close To Something Like That With My Ten Year Old Acer. I Was
Just Sitting Here On My Sofa In My Glory With The Fact That My Ten Year Old Acer Was Ready To Be Replaced And Just Never Saw This Fact.
So The OverHeating MeltDown Of My Ten Year Old Acer Was At That Moment A Good Thing Now That I Can See How This Brand New Acer Will
Perform.The Graphics On This Acer Are Really Stunning. That's To Say Beautiful Graphics. And This New Acer Responds To My WireLess
Mouse And KeyBoard Perfectly. So There Is Really Not Much Else I Can Add. Like I Said Earlier, No Need To List Any Parts Inside This Machine,
AnyOne Who Buys This Acer Will See For ThemSelves. The ReBoot And Start-Up Happens In Seconds. Unlike My Old Acer Which Seem To Take
Forever. Now My Second Computer A Dell Inspiron Is About As Old As My Ten Year Old Acer Was, And Is Starting To Have It's Share Of Problems.
This Tells Me That The Life Of A Computer Is Probably Ten Years Old. If AnyThing Bad Happens To My Dell And Needs To Be Replaced, Judging
From What I Have Seen And Experienced With This New Acer, I May Replace My Ten Year Old Dell With Another Acer Just Like This One !!
I Am Just That Impressed With This Acer.
Not Much More To Say Or Add !! Except
Have A Nice Day !!

Normally I build my PCs myself, but with the cost of good graphics cards being rather obnoxious right now this seemed like too good a deal to pass up. Plus I have an Acer laptop that has run like a champ for the past 6 years, so I felt fairly confident I wouldn't have any problems with this either.
For the last 3 months, it ran great, with no issues whatsoever, until yesterday when it died inexplicably. I've learned plenty of tricks over the years to get PCs running again after they do things like this, but nothing I've tried has worked. So now I have a $700 doorstop. I think I'll stick to building my own from here on out.

A FANTASTIC gaming PC value for the price
After a few months I'm happy to say she is rock solid!
Shipping: Fast and well packaged.
Price: Super cheap for what you get!
Components: On a high level, what you get for the price is fantastic.
Size: She is a tight little package!
Components: The RAM sticks are super cheap and do not have heat sinks. The CPU cooler is straight up garbage. When rendering light maps in Unreal Engine 4 my CPU gets up to 90 DEGREES CELSIUS. First upgrade will be a new CPU cooler for sure. The motherboard seems cheap and is really packed together tightly. I don't use DVD's so I did not test that aspect. The write speed of the SATA drive (of which there are 4 ports) is only 3 GB/S. I did not realize this when I purchased it. HOWEVER- I did purchase a 500 GB EVO SSD and even being capped at 3GB/S she has KILLER speed. (I can cold boot to usable state in around 18 seconds!)
Peripherals: The mouse and keyboard are garbage. I use my old set with this new PC.
Size: Her tight aesthetic makes her a pain in the neck to work inside of and upgrade. I had to take out the GPU just to get to the SATA ports for my SSD drive.
OVERALL: She is an amazing deal. I am a professional video game artist and for my needs, she well exceeded expectations and performance. I don't play a ton of games but she was able to play Witcher 3 at ULTRA at low to mid 50 FPS which is pretty good! PUBG on ultra was also very solid!

This PC deserves more 5 stars. It's way better than all the cyberpower junk amazon shoves in your face. Those computers are useless, this one is actually about the same price if you just bought the parts and built it yourself. You cant even buy parts for cyberpower cause they are so outdated. Would definitely recommend this PC to anyone new to gaming.

Runs Great! Easy Setup for Oculus Rift!
Runs Great! I received this desktop today and immediately began setting it up. After the normal, lengthy Microsoft updates, I updated the display drivers, downloaded the Oculus Rift software, and successfully setup the Oculus Rift headset & sensors without any hassle. The PC is running very smooth, and as for the sound, I can't even tell it's running because it's so quiet. I haven't tried any intensive gaming on it yet, but from what I've seen so far, it appears that it will have no problem handling it.
