Please boycott Acer Products... please...

This call is not because of bitter feeling with regards to the brand or a particular model... I'm just saying this straight and clear... with actual expertise, knowledge, and experience... Acer products are considered EPIC FAIL products and are not worth being an investment computer and peripheral devices.

I've been dealing and encountering numerous Acer products (here in the Phils.) for the past 4 years, and yes, even before I started working... ranging from Desktops, Laptops (beginning with the gemstone series), and other peripherals like mices and LCD Monitors. There are all good and all in terms of price and specs... but just wait after 6 months or upon approaching the end of warranty period... you'll really experience 1st class crap after-service in your whole life.

Apart from the poor after-sales servicing and warranty, their products are not that reliable in the long run. The products that are above the price range of Php 90,000 are actually good, but the rest, which is their main product line since they target the mid-range price category and market... that is where their crappy products lie... most especially the first few versions of their gemstone series laptops and core2duo aspire desktops. They really tend to break down within the 1st year of use, and it is quite hard to ask for support or repairs in their service center.

Just to list down the Acer products I have been able to get my hands on, for personal or work use... here is the following...

Acer Aspire E560C - later downgraded by Acer service center due to lack of parts
Acer Aspire 5580
Acer Aspire 4710 - crap lifespan
Acer Aspire 4720 - display really tends to breakdown and wifi issues
Acer Aspire 4520 - same case of failing lcd display and wifi issues
Acer Aspire 4920 - performance issues
Acer Aspire 4730Z
Acer Aspire 4736Z
Acer AL1916W LCD Monitor
Acer P223W LCD Monitor - some breakdown issues
Acer X233H LCD Monitor - one of the previously new models that suddenly became EOL
Acer Aspire One SSD-variant - utterly fails whatever you do to it

I'm sorry to those who have Acer products right now, especially to those Acer-loyalist... and hope that the models you have purchased will last long... because when it comes to the point that they do break down, just remember to not purchase the same brand again... I just see that they are not good quality nor advisable to purchase...
