I have had this laptop for around 4 to 5 years now and it has just completely fallen apart. My battery life lasts for around twenty minutes at the most, it overheats which then causes the mouse pad to keep taking me back to the last website I was on. Two of my friends have the exact same laptop but for a shorter amount of time than me and its happened to them as well. Its just not at all good and should not be advertised as an amazing laptop!

Firstly I would definately not reccomend this laptop to anybody. There are many things bad about this laptop like the battery life when fully charged is 39mins there are also lots of other things. I have had this laptop for roughly 3 or 4 years now and the fan is making noises, the laptop gets slower and slower, things dont respond and parts are braking and falling out like the card in the side I have had to put blue tack on it to stop it from falling out. If you are looking for a good... (read more)

Had problems originally as awful Vista was installed. Once this was removed and upgraded to Windows 7 I haven't had a problem since! I would recommend this laptop BUT only if you ditch Vista (overheating and shut down will occur if you don't - the problem is the software not the hardware). Its great being larger with the proper calculator on the side (studying accounts so was a selling point). Keep an eye out for great deals, I got one so am very very very happy! great for students and... (read more)

The internal or external microphones do not work. There is evidently a design or manufacturing fault with this laptop. (read more)

This laptop was only good for about the first few weeks then I ran in to so many problems.
It overheats and turns off - not great when you are working on assignments.
It's become extremely slow and lags when trying to do anything. So frustrating!
The power cord has split and falls out of the laptop constantly. Which is very annoying as the battery doesn't last long at all.
The hard drive is extremely small - made even smaller by Vista saving everything twice on the hard drive.
I will... (read more)

Buying this laptop was a huge mistake. It worked okay for the first year.
But as soon as the guarantee ran out that's when all the problems started happening. My battery lasts less than an hour now, which is frustrating. The worst thing is that at least two times a day it overheats and turns itself off. Do not buy this laptop!! I should have known not to trust acer, they havent exactly got the best reputation..

Owned my 5735 for over 18 months and it hasn't missed a beat. Im surprised at some of the other reviews. Battery, charger and speed have not been an issue. Works as well as the day i bought it. Would recommend this laptop as one of the best value for money laptops out there. Can only assume there's a batch of faulty laptop from manufacture. Great laptop. (read more)

Charging unit died at one year mark just when heavy snows came at Christmas 2009. One year warranty ended on 26 December and couldn't get any help for days so finally bought my own replacement as had end of year work. Now the battery won't charge - which began at the 17 month mark. Love the integrated number pad (am accountant), weight, size of screen, etc. I find touchpad a bit unpredictable in use. My computer in travels has fallen over a few times in its case (not dropped) and it still... (read more)

I`ve had this laptop for just over 2 years and, although its got a good quality screen, a few months later (5-6 months) the battery was so bad that as soon as it booted up the battery just goes and its still doing it now. (read more)

I bought this laptop (Apsire 5735Z) for use with our digital camaras. Whilst initially fine, we started to have problems with it booting up. Eventually just before the expiry of the warranty it refused to power up at all, despite many attempts I could not get Acer to accept responsibility for fixing this unless we paid approx £250 to fix the fault. It took them 3 weeks to ship it back and well over a month of conversations with customer service. Thank god I bought it from Tesco, who took on... (read more)

the switching off problem is common in a few laptops ... my acer aspire 5735 was good for the first 6 months then the fan started coming on, the machine would overheat and switch off, not even a shutdown ... i got a hoover and a match, took the back off, cleaned and hoovered the fan out ( be careful not to let the fan spin while you have the hoover extension over the fan, hold the fan with the matchstick ), easy to get to, its at the back, i pulled lots of fluff out and ever since then its...

I have had mine for about 16 months and cannot really complain about it.
It is easy to use and has a good charge even after this long. Lightweight compared to some, very good value for money
I haven't had any need for repairs etc and I would certainly recommend this laptop to others. (read more)

I find this laptop to be extremely good, extremely quick, easy to use, good disk space.
I have had a couple of issues however, my left click is a bit temperamental, but I use a logitech marble anyway so that's no real issue, my battery can no longer hold charge, but I permanently leave it plugged in so it is probably my own fault, and I have just broke my 2nd charger, again mostly my fault.
So while it can be a bit prone to breakages, if you look after it well, it is an amazing laptop. (read more)

Acer Aspire 5735
this laptop is very good, i have read the other reviews and i am so suprised that they had so many problems with it.
my battery lasts for 2 hours, just as long as if it was still new. you shouldn't keep your laptop charging when it has battery, because it
will become dependent on always being charged, so when you want it to last for over an hour, it will only last 20 mins or less.
it is really easy to use, the webcam is good. it has lots of memory. however when you have... (read more)
