are emachines any good?

Acer emachines / Kav60

Specs: 7

E-Machines (made by Acer) have had many very bad reviews. They are poorly made and the warranty is not worth the paper it is printed on - they have a history of poor after sales service and are well known for citing warranty exclusions and charging excessively for repairs to certain hardware malfunctions. The screen for example, should it fail, is not covered.

eMachines started out as it's own company & was then bought out by Gateway. Then Gateway/eMachines was bought out by Acer. The only major problem that seems to be brought up regularly in these forums is the fact that they use low quality Bestec power supplies that have a higher than average failure rate.

Why are you asking about the quality if you already have a negative opinion?

Is there a question in there somewhere?

Like everything in life, you get what you pay for.

It was not a question, it was a reply to the previous question/topic 'Are E-Machines any good?'. It is my opinion that they are very poor indeed, and anyone considering buying one should be warned that there is a very good reason why they are commonly known as 'the worst computers in the world'.

If it fails you 'it is the worse computer in the world'. Based on the failures I've seen the worse rank would be HP, Compaq, eMachine, Packard Bell, IBM, Dell. I've have bought eMachine, Dell, & Acer laptops and most have been running for two to three years without problem. I have machines that have run for more than 10 years.
