Reviews for the Acer Chromebook 514 CB514-2HT-K0FZ
Source: Laptop Mag
The Acer Chromebook 514 makes a convincing case for itself with fantastic battery life that lasts 14 hours, a solid set of speakers that truly impressed my cynical ears, and passable performance wrapped up in an inexpensive package. However, while this Chromebook runs fine, it could perform way better. Its faults persist with a display hindered by poor color range and low nits of brightness. I also wasn’t particularly impressed by its frictionless touchpad, which constantly forced me to fight against it when getting work done. However, if you can look past these faults, the Acer Chromebook 514 is a great Chromebook with record-breaking battery life that’s more than worth its cost.
