I got this PC 2 years ago with vista pre-installed. Vista was killing my PC making it noisy, and sluggish. Have now upgraded to Windows 7 and surprisingly it is fast and the hard drive has stopped making noise. I would recommend this PC to everyone, only with Windows 7 though. (read more)

This machine has a very noisy and overactive hard drive that scratches away all day, and is fatiguing to listen to. There is a very low amount of ram in the machine, just 512. Three slots are free!.You can't even up grade the BIOS system from the ACER offical site. It seems to be able to handle photo well and has a four biscuit insert panel for camera memory cards at the front of the machine. But that's all you can say for it on the positive side. I would give it one and a half stars only. A... (read more)

About the Acer Aspire T180 Desktop I have had the usual problems but it was all down to my inexperience.
I have mine open at the side and I have upgraded the graphics card to a NVIDIA 7600 GS plus and I installed a new fan.
I play call of duty modern warfare 2 and its great.
I have only installed one ram memory card and I am going to upgrade it to a 2gb I have two spare slots and will seek advice on whether I could put more ram in.
It was running a bit slow so I bought Regcure and blow me... (read more)

Bought this about 2 years ago with 1Gb ram and 160gb memory. Since easily upgraded to 4gb ram with no problem. Agree graphics is slow but plan to upgrade soon. Good basic machine with no problems with MS Office or with most photoediting software. Also added second DVD RW for ease of copying discs. With regular maintenance and clean up this is a good basic level, economical PC which is easy to upgrade if needed. (read more)

There is one place for this pc - in the bin.
Why did they sell it with Vista installed? The machine is gutless. Upgrading the ram is full of pitfalls and I'm not going to attempt it.
I really hope mine has a fatal error soon so I am forced to buy, or better build, a new pc.
The only thing that Acer can make is monitors. (read more)

The Acer Aspire T180 system was very sluggish and had problems opening word and excel, took a very long time to launch these programs.
When I tried to request a recovery CD from customer support it became a lesson in the ultimate frustration. I got referred back and forth between their website and call center. Each referring me to the other.
So no recovery disc poor performing system. I feel like I was robbed. Price made me take the risk on this system but to anyone out there looking... (read more)

A solid, reliable machine. I've had no problems with it for over 2 years so I'm quite happy with it. Although the graphics card which it has to start with is kind of old, and isn't really up to the standard of modern pc gaming. Overall a great machine, worth the money, and a free upgrade to vista.

In case of reliability and service I recommend - don't buy this machine. After paying a lot of money and waiting a lot of time you get recovery cd's which don't work. The support service tell's you, you should try partitioning first with a win98 cd (maybe) or with any another boot-floppy (there's no floppy drive integrated).
And the video-drivers on the acer-website for this pc also dont work. (read more)

I bought the basic machine a couple years ago:
512MB DDR2 RAM
AMD Sempron 3200+ processor
you know the rest
Anyway, I installed a proper graphics card first, as long as you make sure the games you buy don't require a processor higher than 1.8GHz, you're fine, although I do have a couple of games that require 2.0GHz but seem ok.
Also I bought 2x 1GB memory (which I installed alongside the original 512MB) this drastically improves the computer's performance and I highly recommend... (read more)

Bought as a cheap-n-cheerful upgrade to an older machine, and for the purpose of at least familiarising myself with Vista (although I haven't used Windows for more than five years now, but I need to keep my MS skillset reasonably up-to-date!)
For the money, it's quite a good machine - I've been perfectly happy so far. (read more)

Unhelpful, reliability I thought was poor, hard drive failed after a couple of months, just long enough to have loads of data to lose!
Acer couldn't have been less helpful in getting it repaired if they'd tried. The worst customer service I've experienced in many many years. (read more)

I got what I payed for. I have found the T 180 to be reliable and relatively trouble free. Most of the problems being related to the operating system and drivers. By regularly performing maintenance tasks on the computer I have found it reliable and forgiving of my sometimes heavy hand. Having owned an HP before this is cheaper, better and recommended.

Keep locking up and Acer very very unhelpful in producing a recovery disk in my experience. I do not recommend Acer Aspire computer systems due to my experience, as I can not think of one positive thing to say about Acer. (read more)

I've found the performance of the Acer T180 to be very poor. In addition, I've had numerous problems with the system locking up when it goes into power saving mode. The sequence to restore the system to an active state is unreliable. Disabling power saving mode appears to have improved the reliability of my system. (read more)

I find the general performance and reliability of the Acer Aspire T180 PC Desktop very disappointing indeed! If only I could have afforded to spend a little more, I would much rather have purchased a Hewlett Packard, a Packard Bell or even a Futjitsu Siemens PC. I would not recommend this Acer Aspire T180 to my worse enemy let alone to any of my friends! (read more)
