Acer Aspire 5920 G1 - Cdiscount

    I was wondering if anyoone has taken delivery of this laptop from Cdiscount that is on offer for £399.

    I am seriously tempted to buy this but i have a few reservations regarding the perceived poor build quality of Acer laptops.

    Comments both positive and negative about this laptop deal will be gladly received.

    Also any recommendations for alternative laptop deals around the £400 mark will be more than useful.

    Thanks in advance.


    i'd never recommend an acer to anyone
    have had only terrible support experience from them!

    that said, i've boycotted them for the past 3 years... maybe things have changed?

    i've ordered one but it's not arrived yet, My current laptop is an acer which i've had for 4 years and it's been fine

    Thanks for your comments.

    1 plus.
    1 minus.

    Anyone else?

    Make sure you're in when they say they're going to deliver, cdiscount use HDN couriers and they are absolutly rubbish. we ordered a sony vaio on the 17th of december, on the 22rd it still hadn't turned up so we called cdiscount, they told us it had been left with a neighbour on the 20th of december but no card had been left so no way for us to know which neighbour, they said it had been signed for aswel

    we asked the man 1 door down from us and he said they asked him to take it but he wouldnt be around and that a little while later he saw it left on the floor outside our door (which every tom dick and harry walks past)

    we phoned cdis again that evening and they said they would email HDN (who have no contact phone number whatsoever, the only way of contacting them is through the company who can only contact them via email)

    HDN emailed back saying they would interview the driver to find out which neighbour he left it with on the 23rd,
    they still havent found out where he left it (now the 29th, how long does a 2 minute phone call take to make??)

    all in all cdiscount is a great site with excellent customer service, using HDN lets them down big time though, make sure you use next day delivery and that you are in otherwise you might have to share our misery
