Hi,\n\nI have been in touch with Acer Service/helpDesk manager in two countries\nvery frequently on quality issues.\n\n803LCI (and basically all 800 series, and applicable to 600 series).\n\n1. 4A12\nDoes sometime hang your system, and can't be rebooted for few hours.\nThought hardware issue, but upgrading to lower or higher version, never had\nthe problem. Acer didn't know what's wrong.\n\n2. Blurry external output.\nI read archive of this news about updated driver being the answer, THIS IS\nBULLSHIT. Get your unit to the service center, ask for inverter change. If\nthe engineer didn't know what it's all about, ask them to ask Taiwan\nengineer. By this time, it should be available on their internal knowledge\nbase. Took me forever to convince them, it's a hardware issue.\n\n3. Battery weak\nSeldom use the battery (on A/C, battery unplugged). battery has lost 15% of\nit's maximum charge in 6 months. My Dell, still has 100% full charge\ncapacity after 18 months.\n\n4. Wireless can't be regonized in supplied ProSet (Intel)\n\n5. Bluetooth module (added by Acer in 803) can't be recognized in Launch\nManager\n\n6. Rapid charging is a BIG LIE. 1,5 hours to reach 80% not to 100%\n\n7. Wireless range sucks. What you can expect of cheapo quality\n\n8. Paid premium price for 803LCI and saw 800 USD decline in 3 months.\n\n9. No driver update except those that come from Intel so far. Compared to\nother vendors, by 1 year, there should be few patches for display driver\netc. Acer known to be very lazy at updating drivers.\n\n10. Cheapo CDRW drivers - Quanta ....\n\n\n650xxxx\n\n1. USB 2.0 (VIA Chipset) is a nightmare.... many external usb 2.0 storage\ndoesn't work\n\n610, 600, 420\n\n1. O2micro needs patch before work perfectly with PCMCIA USB 2.0 cards and\nusb2.0 harddisk. Again Acer lazy at looking, had to liase with o2micro\ndirectly to get updated patch. Many people spent countless hours to get\nfixes directly, and acer just get money from new notebooks.\n\nSmartcard in 6xx, 8xx\n\nHa.. what a joke, outdated software, can be bypass, no documentation, weak\nencryption. What can you expect this to secure your system.
