Hands on Use
After the benchmarks and the dust has settled, it's time to get into the hands on portion of the review. The thing that will draw most users to the Acer Aspire 5738DG-6165 is the notebooks 3D screen. The coolest part about the Acer Aspire 5738DG-6165 is that normal 2D video and images can be turned into 3D video and images on the fly. The 3D effects are very cool and while not as good as you will see in theaters, they are eons better than the early at home 3D content we saw in games and on movies. This is actually real 3D and the effects are very enjoyable. The screen is very glossy so glare is an issue in many instances.
The keyboard on the Acer Aspire 5738DG-6165 is a chicklet style keyboard that has good typing feel and a good layout. The keys are full size and everything is where it is supposed to be. The keyboard sports a full number pad as well, which is important if you work with lots of spreadsheets. The track pad is a multi touch unit that supports gestures. With the track pad a single finger moves the cursor, two fingers acts as scroll and you can zoom in and out with pinch gestures.
The notebook has a decent sound system with Dolby technology built in. There is not a huge amount of bass, but plenty of volume for listening to movies and music without headphones on is available. If you are a gamer, you can play some 3D games on this computer and thanks to the TriDef 3D screen, those games can be turned into 3D fun. You can't expect to play the highest end titles with all of the visual goodies turned on, but the Acer Aspire 5738DG-6165 can play most games at lower settings. The machine is portable, but portability is not the notebooks main feature. Battery life is not that great, but for a desktop replacement the Acer Aspire 5738DG-6165 is a very good machine.
