Acer Aspire V3-574G-1ZI review

 

At under £600 the Acer Aspire V3-574G includes all the essentials to make a great everyday 15in laptop

For under £600 the Aspire V3-574G is easy to recommend. It's a commendable balance of virtues from the IPS screen, to the precise trackpad and highly regarded CPU. Nvidia graphics allow fluid gameplay up to 720p. The five-hour battery life, while half...

Acer's Aspire V15 is a technical achievement, but an aesthetic disappointment.

Acer Aspire V3-574G Notebook Review

 

Tight is not always right. Acer's new all-rounder catches the attention with its good connectivity, fast SSD, and an IPS screen. The battery life, however, is only average because Acer has slimmed down the battery significantly compared with that of...

Matte IPS screen, Decent application performance, Gaming suitable, Swift SSD, Good input devices

No maintenance cover, Middling battery life, Reduced screen brightness in battery mode

Acer's Aspire V3-574G has more than enough computing power for routine use, and renders computer games smoothly. The installed solid-state drive ensures a fast-running system. The laptop does not produce much noise during normal use and barely heats...

Acer Aspire V3-574G-77X8 Review

 

Good materials and construction quality High-end specifications at a reasonable price Good overall performance

Not enough USB 3.0 ports Keyboard and trackpad could be improved

The specific version of the Acer Aspire V3 we tested is not available in India just yet. A variant with all specifications the same, except for a step down to 8GB of RAM, is priced at Rs. 71,999 (MRP). We expect the one we tested to be priced...

Acer Aspire V3-574G

 

Very fast laptop, capable of running even the most demanding software.

This laptop is NOT Windows 10 compatible! Sold as compatible, very deceiving. Makes the computer very very slow and apps are unusable. I repeat DO NOT install Windows 10 as it is a waste of time and effort

Acer Aspire V3-574G

 

Good looking laptop which feels solid. Processor speed is very good. The display is crisp and clear. Great keyboard, and touchpad seems fine, so far.

I had a couple of problems upgrading to Windows 10. I didn't go via 8.1 but straight to 10 so don't know who to blame! Got things sorted pretty quickly. Not overly impressed with the speakers but using decent headphones makes up for them.
