Acer Aspire AZ3-615 all-in-one PC review

 

The Acer Aspire AZ3-615 is a mid-priced all-in-one PC with decent features including ten-point multi-touch, discrete graphics, great sound and much better than average performance. As such it makes a good family all-in-one PC, although there are...

Acer Aspire Z3-615 review

 

The Acer Z3-615 has good internal components but it's ugly and its peripherals are hopeless

The centrepiece of any all-in-one PC is the screen, and the Full HD touchscreen panel on the Z3-615 is reasonably good. Our calibration hardware measured sRGB gamut coverage of 88.9 per cent, which is about what'd you expect from a relatively cheap...

Acer Aspire Z (AZ3-615-UR15)

 

The Acer Aspire Z (AZ3-615-UR15) is a solid desktop that delivers most of the features that we want on a midrange all-in-one PC.

Nice price. Snappy performance. HDMI-in port. DVD burner. Good tilt on screen.

Lots of bloatware. No 5GHz Wi-Fi. Mushy keys.

The Acer Aspire Z (AZ3-615-UR15) has more bloatware than rivals and a couple of other nits to pick, like a lack of 5GHz Wi-Fi and a mushy keyboard. However, if you can get past those relatively minor issues, the system is a solid and nicely priced...

Acer Aspire Z3-615-UR15 Review and Ratings

 

With its bright, touch-enabled display and middle-of-the-road components, the Acer Aspire Z3-615-UR15 is a fine entry choice for families who don't demand blazing performance.

Big, bright touch screen ; Wireless keyboard and mouse ; USB 3.0 ports

Reflective display ; Mushy, small keyboard ; Finicky mouse ; Lack of Blu-ray

If you're seeking a home computer for casual use, or you have kids who like to play casual, kid-friendly games, or you believe in the Windows 8 touch ecosystem, you have plenty of reasons to invest in an all-in-one like the Acer Aspire Z3-615-UR15. If...

An excellent purchase

  (Rating Hidden)

I wanted a replacement for an aging desktop and took myself down to Currys/PC World. I had seen an all-in-one at a friend's house and had been impressed by the screen size and simplicity of his set up. In the store, the Aspire Z3 stood out from similar...

I bought this on the strength of the web site images and it looked fine. When it arrived however the panel turned out to be clunky, blocky and cheap-looking. I know it's not the most expensive unit in the world but it should at least look as though...

Nice wide screen and font size. Handy desktop replacement

 

I am finding this a pleasure, in most respects, to use though I have retained my previous keyboard and mouse with which I am very familiar and have not unpacked the ones which came with the set. It was easy to unpack and install. It operates under...

Poor Hardware and software

 

It took me 2 weeks to get this PC running properly. First there was a rogue Windows update which caused the procedure to fail and this was only resolved when Microsoft re-installed Windows 8.1. Secondly I kept getting warning messages that 4 drivers...
