“Acer Aspire Idea 510”

Having built two Media Center PCs previously and after one of them being damaged, I decided to buy a ready built system with the insurance money. I was offered a limited choice by the insurance company, and eventually settled on the Acer Idea 510 as this gave the best value for money, or so it...

I've owned one of these for 18 months. It's brilliant. The only negative is that it is just like a PC insofar as it needs maintenance. Reboot it weekly and generally don't use it as a PC but as a media centre (after all isn't that why you want one?) and it'll be fine - so long as you don't expect the shear simplicity of a dvd player. If you already own and successfully use a PC, buy one. Expensive - yes - but worth every penny. TV, TV recording, Music, Photos, Internet, Films and games all in one place - unsurpassed.

Excellent product I have owned one since it was released and this unit has been switched on for months on end with no major issues. I have just (May 09) swapped out the power supply and upped the memory to 4 gig and I am going to load Windows 7 release candidate. Other positive qualities the quietness of the fans. The range of inputs on the rear. Near silent running of hard drive The concealed front panel including card reader. 10 out of 5!

Not for me

Apart from the bluetooth never working the machine was OK for six months, if you can put up with having to reset every other week. Then it went wrong. I returned it to Acer and it came back a week later apperently OK. 24 hours later the same fault returned. Once again back to Acer who did nothing for 3 weeks. Finally I insisted they return it to me and I have taken the problem up with the retailer. Acer were worse than useless in this matter. Buy one of these at your peril!!!!

First, let me tell you I DON'T like complimenting the competition. I build, and service computers. Have since 1984 when I assembled my first "IBM XT clone". Right before Dell, Compaq et al. Having said that, I give kudos to the Acer Group. The Aspire 510 is one we can place in our customers homes...

Unreliable, poor support from Acer

The Acer Aspire iDea 510 did a good job for a couple of years, providing the family with a single centre for playing DVDs, music, CDs, a photo library and even performed adequately on some low end PC games. However, the front display packed up after a couple of years and no-one seemed to have a...

I thought this was a great piece of kit, play xvid divx no need for codecs, record 2 channels and watch a movie without flaws, had thsi for 20 days then switched on one day NOTHING on screen so waiting on reply from my supplier for a replacement, and like the previous poster, its an expensive risk.
