Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5745DG
There’s no denying that NVIDIA’s 3D Vision technology works, although those who already wear glasses or struggle to remember to charge their phone will likely find the necessary 3D eyewear a frustration. The question we’re left asking is why Acer decided to cut corners on the optical drive, given you’d expect the company to want Aspire 5745DG owners to have access to as much 3D content as possible. With no Blu-ray option, that choice is seriously curtailed.

The 15.6-inch Acer Aspire 5745DG looks much like your common or garden laptop, but this machine has a pretty neat trick up its sleeve. 15.6-inch Acer Aspire 5745DG laptop offers an affordable way of getting into 3D gaming. A Blu-ray drive and faster graphics chip would be welcome though, helping you to take advantage of more 3D content.

There are plenty of reasons to like the Acer Aspire 5745DG, but probably only one reason to buy it; you've got to be won over by the idea of 3D content. If you happen to have a collection of Blu-ray 3D titles or a camera that can take 3D photos, a 3D notebook could be the perfect way to enjoy your media. But let's be honest, that's a pretty big if.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M: Successor of the GeForce GT 335M featuring DirectX 11 support and based on the GF108 chip.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
