Not sure what people think of this in comparison to the Dell XPS series. I ordered a Dell XPS and will now vote it cold since their USB ports don't work properly and in 6 months, Dell haven't released a fix!

Anyway, a powerful high spec laptop here. I'm not sure what people think of Acer Aspire in general!

For my part, I try to leave my Logitech nano receiver connected in one of the two rear USB 3.0 ports. If I connect something, say an external HDD to this port, and try to copy files, the ports disappear. Sometimes the mouse just stops working on its own as well. It's a common problem, Dell still haven't fixed it, leaving me very annoyed as I waited a month for this laptop, and now it's back to hunting again!

It's a cOmmon USB 3 issue my transcend USB 3 card was the same just download the new nec firmware and drivers it fixes all the issues.

I've done that, had no luck, unless you want to link me to one please, maybe it's a driver that I haven't tried!

I recently purchased a laptop from saveonlaptops. Customer services are impressive as far as i am concerned. Although, I received a laptop with faulty trackpad but they arranged for collection from home and delivered new within five business days.

Alright, cheers. I've heard a few who have received a faulty laptop to start with so I wondered if they were "seconds"?

Usually I wouldn't go harping on about screen resolution, personally I don't think you need 1080p on a laptop. However, this laptop has one of the better graphics chipsets that'll play quite a few things on high settings at good resolutions. Therefore, isn't it odd they didn't give this a 1600x900 screen? 2GB of dedicated graphics memory and you'll never have the Resolution to take advantage of it. Damn shame.
