    Bought an HP and then purchased the accidental protection for well under $100 then after buying the same caliber Acer the extended warranty for the same amount of time was double the price. They sent a 20% off discount for the warranty but it would only apply 10%. After an hour of tech support I gave up. Hopefully it will hold up well but I don't see how they command any better value than HP with the same processor.

    I bought a brand new acer predator laptop from Best Buy. About a month later the motherboard died. Their repair center then lost my laptop and they refuse to replace or refund me. They are thieves and are forcing me to take them to court to get my money back. It’s an unreliable product and the worst customer service I have ever experienced.

      I bought laptop Acer Nitro 5 a month before and having problems like sometimes laptop is not turning on just showing the lights in keyboard and not turning on. I have my all data in laptop and sometimes I feels like I will lost all the data. So think more to buy Acer laptops because the quality is not that better. If you're buying laptop and after 1 month it's having issues then it's waste of money and time also.

      Bought Acer products for my office, switched to newer windows software, lost the Drivers needed for Acer products, contacted Acer, Acer would not give the drivers or online manuals unless I purchased something else from them. It is their product, they should support it, simple logic. IF I had known this before, I would NOT have purchased Acer products.

      My Acer Swift 3 is less than two years old. The battery will not charge. I called Acer to see if they will help me. Because the warranty expired they refused to talk to me directly and sent me to a 3rd party person. The gentleman was EXTREMELY rude. Never even asked any questions. He told me to seek a private computer tech and hung up. I called sales and they were very sweet and he gave me a number to call. When I called that number - again they were very rude and refused to assist me at all. I asked for an email to personally contact Acer and he told me to search the website. Until this purchase all laptops were HPs - I regret not staying with them.

      Have ongoing issues with Acer laptop a good percentage of the time is when there are Microsoft updates. This last one is loss of microphone use for Google, apparently not an easy fix, shipping is required. Microsoft prefers the use of Edge over Google. Last issue was loss of taskbar, now 1-launch keeps appearing out of nowhere, consistently. Then before that was loss of volume control. It's free shipping for the microphone repair but I will live without the microphone use. Let's just say I'm getting paranoid of what the future holds.

      Problem with a computer keyboard that was only 2 months old. The seller could not provide warranty as it was under manufacturer's warranty. Understandable. Acer posted a warranty claim phone number that I called several times because the call was dropped each time they transferred the call to their third party technical support department.

      When I was asked to provide the SNID number that was requested from their automated system, I was informed that this unit was out of warranty which was disappointing to hear on a 2 month old purchase. This message should not have been presented because it was not accurate. It was later confirmed in a conversation that this was NOT out of warranty.

      I simply gave up on pursuit of a claim and will purchase another keyboard to work with Acer product I purchased. Acer needs to revamp their customer service from a customer ASPECT in terms of streamlining their process in making it more user friendly thru the process. If Acer wants to to contact me regarding this review, I welcome their call. Dave

      I have a Acer monitor that is less than a year old that is showing a white flickering banner through the middle of the screen, when I call to see what needs to be done so that this problem they will send me a shipping label, but I have to figure out or buy a box to send it to them, pack it myself, find a fedex near me and drop it off, it then will take 3-5 business days for them to see what is wrong and repair it and then ship it back to me. Why wouldn't they have it where you can take it to like UPS and they pack it and ship it, or if I can pack it then the shipping people can pick it up from my home why do I have to all the work for them to repair a product of theirs that don't work less than a year later. They don't make it convenient for the customer at all and they do not care in the slightest.

      I sent this Chromebook back twice for warranty repair. The 2nd time it still wasn't fixed - and it was returned with visible damage! Acer won't repair or take responsibility. Hasn't worked right since day 1. Piece of garbage, in my opinion.

      Bought a desktop computer from Acer (Acer Aspire) about 9 months ago. Worked ok, last month it would not power on. Contacted Acer and since it's under warranty was told to return it so we did. I called to follow up and was told they are NOT going to repair because they found a roach. They sent a picture of the inside of another computer with a roach on its back.

      1. I haven't seen a roach like that not even in the neighborhood so no infestation issues from my end.
      2. The roach looked like it recently died and was adult size so how would that crawl into a computer?

      3. The picture of the inside of the computer they sent was not ours, it looked very old. We know this because we have 2 Acer same model. So we sent them by a picture of the one at home which is about 2 years old and there's no comparison.

      The repairs department is lying. I believe they just didn't want to fix it. I would not recommend buying from Acer, find a more reputable company.
