Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5 A515-51G-509A

81.5% Acer Aspire 5 A515-51G-509A (8250U, MX130, FHD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Boon or bust. A GeForce MX130? Until now only two laptop manufacturers have built this pared-down version of the MX150 into their models. One of them is Acer who uses this rare combination of an i5-8250U and the MX130 in their 15-inch Aspire 5. Among other things we will find in our test how large the difference in the graphics performance really is and whether the Acer is mainly suited for work or also for gaming.
Ревю на Acer Aspire 5 (A515-51G) – един от най-добрите бюджетни лаптопи с мултимедийна насоченост
Source: Laptop Mag English
В заключение можем да кажем, че 15-инчовият Aspire 5 осигурява почти същото изживяване на потребителя като 17-инчовия модел с едно изключение – екрана. Очевидно Acer са направили някои жертви по отношение на качеството на екрана и вместо висококласен IPS панел са включили дисплей от среден клас с ограничено sRGB покритие и малко над средната максимална яркост. Въпреки това не можем да се оплачем, тъй като в този ценови клас панелът има много повече смисъл. Дисплеят на 17-инчовия модел беше бонус. Все пак липсата на ШИМ над 22% яркост и изключително високия контраст трябва да се вземат предвид.
Positive: Solid workmanship; comfortable keyboard; nice display; good price / performance ratio; long battery life. Negative: Mediocre touchpad; no backlit keys; overheats while using.

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


81.5%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
