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)

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 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 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)

This laptop is not worth the money. I have had my laptop for more than a year. The button has worn down and no longer works right so I've had to get a mouse which is a hassle when trying to have it portable. The picture is dull and the crystal eye webcam doesn't even come with a program to make videos or anything of the sort, which I was looking forward to instead of having to go online and download editing programs. Unfortunatly for me, I bought a 4 year warranty, but I can not find the... (read more)

my acer laptop had to be returned within three months as the hard drive was broken, within another month it was sent back because the screen has broken. I have now been told that it was dispatched four days ago with dhl who have no knowledge of its whereabouts. So at present i have no laptop and am £400 out of pocket. Acer are not interested and nor is the retailer. Please do not buy an Acer, the quality is dreadful and matched by the service. Never again!

Has worked OK, although the "B"-key did not work when I first got the laptop - managed to fix that on my own, sending to Acer for repairs seemed too complicated. Also, the battery worked OK (2hrs lifetime) for the first year, but now it dies after 5-10min without any warning; goes from 90% to dead in a couple of seconds. (read more)

But two weeks after I got it the screen has been getting like water spots all over it and I complained to Best buy and they said there was nothing they could do about it since I didnt contact them within the month of purchase.

My Acer Aspire, was bought for me just over a month ago, and i dont regret spending £380 on it at all. I bought it from Tesco.com and it was very very fast. As fast as the laptop. I got 4GB of ram, Dual Core Pentium Processor and excellent Dolby speakers. I have to admit, the keyboard does allow in alot of muck and hairs. The battery life is fantastic, compared to Dell Inspiron, this could easily do a marathon while the Dell would struggle to get out of bed. Overall, if you are considering... (read more)

I bought an ACER5735 from Comet UK (476) brand new. Negatives are (-1). The keyboard popped off even in first 5 days, I sent it back and (-2) Comet UK refused to refund my money, and sent the machine to Acer, where it took 1 month to repair. (-3). It always creates an electric spark whenever I plug it to power supply. So I am always scared to plug it. (-4) Power indicator light is too bright, can obscure keyboard visibility, so I used a dog-tape to cover it. Positives (+1) high RAM 4GB, and... (read more)
