I bought an Acer Aspire 5102 a little over a year ago. The first issue I had with it was minor, but I had to send it back to them. They returned it 2 weeks later and it was fine.

Then I kept getting a Blue Screen of Death. 5 subsequent returns via mail (albeit at their expense), I finally convinced them it would be cheaper for them to replace it. But it took 2 months for the replacement to come in.

I also have another 5202 and it works great. Maybe I got a lemon? But their service is awful customer service. You get what you pay for, perhaps?

I've got two Acer laptops both in the Aspire 3000 series. I've had them for over a year and the other for over two years. I bought both of them from walmart.com for crazy low prices. One laptop had a power adapter failure after about a year, but I would call that random failure.

My prior laptop was a Compaq and something else before that.

I never buy extended warranty on anything - except laptops. If a laptop fails the repair is more complex because of size and parts are expensive and proprietary. Walmart had the best prices on extended warranty wen I bought.

So, Acer laptops ... yeah, they are fine.

The only major problem would be that ACER is one of the only companies that require you to send them your computer for repairs. This can take anywhere from a few weeks to a month depending on the problem. I would say your purchase mainly depends on how long you can afford to wait for repairs if you end up with a dreaded lemon.

I've never heard of this brand before. I try to stray from brands of electronics or things that are more costly that don't have a familiar ring at all. I will tell you though that I have had a compaq since the summer of 2005 and I am still using it today. In fact it is my husband and I's main computer and we use it constantly. I got it from Office Depot for like $500 It is a great computer. :) happy hunting!
