I bought this laptop back in summer and here's what the (good/thorough) review doesn't say...

* Out of the box it had to go in for repair since the keyboard was mal-functioning (space bar only had one contact working, various key did not work properley). After some hastles with the reseller - was sent to Acer and fixed.

* However a problem I thought was linked to the keyboard issue was not fixed ie: the Cursor keys cannot be combined !!! You can only go one direction at a time (which is a real problem if you play games no?!?). eg: when gaming if you go up and left for instance then suddenly whatever you were controlling stops dead in it's tracks (try playing any FPS with that!). I've tried sending it back, looking for updating the BIOS etc... nothing work so solution is WASD....

* Cursor keys are too small (ok that you could see from the pics in the review).

* The speakers are really bad quality (the worst I've ever had on any PC/laptop - really).

* Battery life really went crap in no time (I've only had it since summer) - only stay 2 hours max now.

Apart from those 'little' things it's not bad (light, quiet, powerful for gaming) - I let you decide....

I have to inform you that this Notebook is not capable of handling 3 disks. The controller can onyl handle 2 disks at the same time. So either one hdd and the mSata Disk or 2 hdds.

It is not possible to install 2 hdds and the msata disk at once. The system won't recognize them all at the same time.

Does it have keyboard backlight? If yes, what color?

No it does not have a backlit keyboard.  Seems they really focussed on hardware and performance for their budget on this beauty. There are still backlit keyboard upgrades you can get for it though

I have just bought one of these. I want to add an SSD to the second drive bay. Does anyone know where I can get a drive cage/caddy for it?

Does it have IPS panel or not?
"Aspire V3-772G IPS vs. Asus UX51VZ IPS"
"The only real drawback of the V3 is the missing IPS display,"

Yesterday i downclocked a bit the processor usin intel extreme tuning utility, CPU is not supported in Throttlestop 5.00.
After lowering the multiplier to 29x there is no more throttling and no significant performance loss (about 5%). CPU much cooler and fan is spinning much slower.

I just bought it. When rendering on 3ds max the cpu keeps throttling, slowing down pretty much the rendering process.
So far i haven't found any way to disable Turbo Boost, nor in BIOS nor with Win 8 power schemes (it doesn't work). Otherwise good laptop, touchpad is not very precise though. Battery will last 1hr 30 on surfing and watching movies.

the speakers are ok, the lack of a subwoofer is noticeable though. My greatest gripe is the keyboard and the small arrow keys + the touchpad feels imprecise.
