Written on: 07/01/2010 by computercare (1 review written)

Design faults. I run an I.T company which have seen dozens of these machines fall over. Major concern is overheating and potential fire hazard. Do not touch if offered one of these units. We had long discussions with Acer who eventually replaced many of the mainboards however these also fell over. They will still not officially admit any design faults. Not fit for purpose END OF!… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/11/2009

HEHEHE I do not use gas anymore, this damn thing is attached to the top of my car, and the car is pushed forward by the fans. I just unplug the 2 cable when I need to stop. I was going to suggest to NASA that they could attach 10 of these around the space shuttle and do a vertical launch without SRBs or liquid tank. but however the PC is still operating, I am using it now, and thinking of replacing the fans with much quiter fans… Read Full Review

My Acer Aspire was a good computer while it worked, $600, its cheap, but it broke at 6 months, Acer repaired it under warranty, replaced the motherboard, 18 months later, it craps out again! won't turm on, won't even run the hard disk--obviously another motherboard problem--… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/01/2009

Good side is Acer made an awesome system! Bad side is (judging by reading complaints) Acer failed miserably to emphasize how vital keeping this pc cool is to its longevity. Some important instructions they forgot to tell customers were a) it must sit vertically not horizontally b) front door cover must be open at all times c) recommend that it operate in an area or room with good fresh air flow (not limited i.e small room/space) d) have dust cleaned professionally every couple… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/10/2008 by ecoworrier (1 review written)

I bought my L100 back in March, attracted by its elegant design and small size. It was a refurbished model, and just after the 6 months guarantee ran out, it started to have problems freezing up because of overheating. The fan seemed not to be working, because after the start light flashed a little, the thing would just hang. After several attempts using the recovery disk, I finally managed to get everything going again (although I lost all my data and had to re-install everything). Started… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/10/2008

I really want to like this computer, but it's a lot of work. I've had to develop a system with it laying on it's side, with Ice packs underneath that I have to swap out every 2 hours or so. If this Acer is meant to be somewhere cold, like a concrete basement floor, then go for it, otherwise you'll need something that lets the air in in my opinion therefore I do not recommend the Acer Aspire L100 PC Desktop… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/09/2008

Worked great at first. Liked the small size. HD had to be replaced before 1 year, then exactly 1 year later, complete failure. Needs new processor, motherboard (which acer doesn't seem to have) and cpu. 3 months after comp failure it still isn't fixed and it was suggested it won't be cost effective to fix, and I will likely get a refund… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/09/2008 by captain25 (1 review written)

As with everyone I think, sadly my Acer Aspire L100 has gone bust. Starts by over heating, freezing then generally stops, many people use extra fans to keep it going, the hard drive is far to big for the case I feel and on one occasion I took the outer lid off and burnt my fingers on the drive. The size for one thing and very quiet. Lots of usb ports, only found front ones by accident. Smooth design. Do not buy this computer. You will end up out of pocket. I have now had to buy a new normal… Read Full Review

We purchased four L100's for our office and three of them have now overheated catastrophically just out of warranty. Acer deny there's any problem with the product and don't want to know. Worst product choice we've ever made… Read Full Review
