Acer Aspire V5-121 - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

With lot of positive reviews from the customers, Acer Aspire V5-121 (NX.M83SI.005) Notebook - Black (AMD Dual Core / 4GB / 500GB / 11.6" / 256MB Graphics / Win8) has been caught in the act. This small device is a unique piece incarcerated with 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD and Windows 8 packing all together at a lower price point. Basically, the Acer Aspire V5-121 (NX.M83SI.005) is a NetBook packed with slimmer dimensions and lighter weight. The Netbook comes with 1GHz APU Dual core processor from AMD clocked up with Turbo Core Technology 1.33GHz. To augment the performance, the laptop has been provided with 4GB RAM and 1MB Cache memory. Further, with much of surprise, the device has been landed up with 500GB storage which is more than enough for such 11-inch Netbook. The main point of attraction about the device is the Windows 8 OS which creates smooth and stunning Metro interface on the 11.6-inch screen. This HD LED Backlit TFT LCD Display has been empowered with AMD Radeon HD 7290 GPU with 256MB dedicated memory so that all the RAM could be allocated for doing pure computation while the graphics handling can be done separately. Besides, one more astounding feature at this price point is the USB 3.0 interface. Moreover, Acer Crystal Eye Webcam, Multi-Gesture Touchpad (Supporting Two-Finger Scroll, Pinch, Rotate, Flip), Standard Keyboard, VGA and HDMI, Multicard slot,  LAN, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are all handy for daily requirements. Finally, the Acer Aspire V5-121 (NX.M83SI.005) Notebook weighs just 1.20kg and measures 285mm x 202mm x 23.5mm which makes it a delight to carry the device.

Design

The Design is one of the main or we can say an attractive point about the Netbook. The Acer Aspire V5-121 (NX.M83SI.005) Notebook - Black (AMD Dual Core / 4GB / 500GB / 11.6" / 256MB Graphics / Win8) boasts with shining black dark color all over its cover and frontal area. Starting from the front, the netbook has got alluring 11.6-inch HD LED Backlit TFT LCD Display which has been deployed with CineCrystal Technology for offering a vivid and eye soothing view to users. Although, the keyboard is somewhat problematic due to its smaller size. For those regular users who spent their time debugging the programs or playing games with Function and array keys may find it bit difficult to use those congested keys. Anyways moving ahead, the laptop or Netbook whatever it be, procures Multi-Gesture Touchpad which supports Two-Finger Scroll, Pinch, Rotate, Flip operations compatible with the Windows 8 gesture controls. The device also gathers two Built-in Stereo Speakers which have been deployed to deliver HD surround sound but overall their performance seems to be lower than expectations. None the less, the good point to notice is its compact dimensions and weight which stands as 285mm x 202mm x 23.5mm and 1.20kg respectively.

Performance

Acer Aspire V5-121 (NX.M83SI.005) Notebook - Black (AMD Dual Core / 4GB / 500GB / 11.6" / 256MB Graphics / Win8) has been powered with APU Dual Core processor that has a low frequency and this invites some performance problems. Although the Netbook is not ideal for multitasking, it can still handle applications with easiness when used wisely. The 4GB of RAM is adequate for smooth rendering of games and applications. Reportedly, the Netbook has been criticised in terms of playing HD videos however our suggestion is that you may close all back ground applications and then run in some good media player for enjoying at maximum convenience. Windows 8 has been preloaded in it which is of course good feature at such a low price. You can easily find settings for appearance vs performance in the control panel tab and then set the Performance to maximum level so that you can enjoy apps, games and multimedia devoid of any dreadful hang-ups. A DOS option would have added stars to the machine and price point could have been further reduced. Anyways, still a good choice for those trying out with light-weight, slim Windows 8 based device in an affordable price tag.

Gaming

Acer Aspire V5-121 (NX.M83SI.005) Notebook - Black (AMD Dual Core / 4GB / 500GB / 11.6" / 256MB Graphics / Win8) has been allocated with 256MB separate graphics memory under AMD Radeon HD 7290 GPU for handling graphics smoothly and this means games are going to come along effortlessly. The Netbook can easily handle entry to mid level games but for HD or modern high-end games, it’s a big NO.

Connectivity

Acer Aspire V5-121 (NX.M83SI.005) Notebook - Black (AMD Dual Core / 4GB / 500GB / 11.6" / 256MB Graphics / Win8) has been loaded with all essential connectivity set expect a DVD Drive. The device comes with USB 2.0 and Super speed USB 3.0 port that lets you transfer data with high rates. The VGA and HDMI cable gives you full freedom to move away from the smaller screen to a big HDTV or Laptop screen or a projector view. With LAN and Wi-Fi, you can seamlessly connect to the web world and enjoy unremitting Internet services. Finally, with the Bluetooth, you can connect wireless peripherals to enjoy data transfer over the air or access your laptop remotely.

Screen and Sound

As we have discussed before, Acer Aspire V5-121 (NX.M83SI.005) Notebook - Black (AMD Dual Core / 4GB / 500GB / 11.6" / 256MB Graphics / Win8) comes with a 11.6-inch HD LED Backlit TFT LCD Display (CineCrystal Technology) whose LED back light gives crisper and brighter view at the same time consuming lower battery power. There is nothing so special to report for the sound or speakers.

Comparisons

Asus 1015E-CY041D Netbook (CDC/ 2GB/ 320GB/ DOS) has a DOS option and lower price compared to our subject. Acer Aspire V5-131 Netbook (CDC/ 2GB/ 500GB/ Linux) (NX.M88SI.001) comes with a 1.5GHz processor and Linux preinstalled.

Pros

Acer Aspire V5-121 (NX.M83SI.005) Notebook - Black (AMD Dual Core / 4GB / 500GB / 11.6" / 256MB Graphics / Win8) is one of the rarest pieces offered with 4GB RAM, 500GB hard disk and Window 8 pre-loaded in a real low price. The Netbook is much lighter and has compact dimensions.

Cons

There is no support for extreme gaming. Further, you will have to counterbalance performance and graphics. Finally, the congested keys might make work difficult for programmers and gamers.
