Acer Aspire V 15 V3-572G-543S 15.6-Inch Laptop Review

I was recently looking for some good gaming laptops for our Blog and came across the Acer Aspire V 15 V3-572G-543S 15.6-Inch Laptop. It comes very well equipped with the right gear to make it a good cheap gaming laptop. After giving it a quick look for the Blog I decided it deserves a full review.

The Exterior

The top cover of the Acer Aspire V 15 V3-572G-543S has a shiny brushed aluminum finish with a silver Acer logo in the middle of the left side of the cover. On the inside we find the 15.6-Inch Full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel display. A Full HD display is still pretty rare in this price range and is a big plus for this Acer. It is enclosed by a black matte plastic rim that contains the Webcam on the mid top edge and a silver acer logo on the bottom.
The inside is finished in a contrasting silver black finish thanks to the black full sized chicklet keyboard and the silver brushed aluminum finish of the rest of the surface. The keyboard comes with a number pad and has large well spaced out keys.
The very big gray touchpad is very well positioned underneath the spacebar off center. This is the ideal position to not interfere while typing. Most manufacturers don’t move it so much off center and it does get in the way.
The power button is placed in the upper left corner just above the keyboard.
The final small design queue is a small Aspire V in the right side of the palm rest, just underneath the keyboard.
The Status-LEDs and the card reader are located on the left side of the front lip of the laptop.

The Connectivity

The Acer Aspire V 15 V3-572G-543S has mostly all expected connectivity options out the box, but not all. It comes with the Kensington Lock-port, VGA-out, Gigabite Ethernet Lan port, HDMI-out, 1 USB 3.0 port and the Mic/Headphones Combo-jack. The power connector, DVD-Writer and 2 USB 2.0 ports are available on the other side.
On the inside it features Wireless WiFi 802.11 b/g/n/ac connectivity. The only thing missing from this device is Bluetooth. I always find this strange as most Bluetooth modules are integrated in the WiFi module.

The Performance

The Performance of the Acer Aspire V 15 V3-572G-543S is the thing that first caught my eye in the first place and for a good reason. It comes with the new 5th Generation Intel Core i5-5200U processor running at 2.2GHz and also with a Nvidia GeForce GT840M graphics card. The GT840M is a midrange graphics card from Nvidia at it can run most of todays games on high to medium settings.
The combination of good processor and good graphics card make it a very good affordable gaming laptop.
Here you have someone playing Titanfall on a laptop with the GT840M:

On top of this it comes with 8GB DDR3L RAM making multitasking a non issue and with the 1TB HDD you won’t be getting any low space warnings any time soon.
This laptop gets a 6-cell 4700 mAh Li-Ion battery which promises up to 7-hours of battery life.

Who is it for? discussing who would benefit most from this laptop...

  • Student
    The Acer Aspire V 15 V3-572G-543S has the trappings of making a very good dorm room companion. It has the battery life you need for a full day of courses and comes with enough storage space to store your favorite series you can watch on its Full HD screen. If that gets boring you can always fire up your favorite game and enjoy your day. I think this package is ideal for a student and is much better suited to the task than other laptops in this price range.

  • Power User
    The thing with the Acer Aspire V 15 V3-572G-543S is that if you don't need the graphics card you still end up getting a decent processor and 8GB of RAM. The RAM can be upgraded to 16GB by the way. If you do any 3D renderings or GPU intensive work this will work for you. Most other laptops at this price point have basically the same specifications without the graphics card and as such it is a useful bonus to this package.

  • Gaming
    Gaming is where the Acer Aspire V 15 V3-572G-543S shines. The Nvidia GeForce GT840M is more than capable of running anything you throw at it. For the more demanding games out there you will end up having to play around with the quality settings, but the important thing is that you can play the game. The good processor and high RAM will keep loading times low and the big 1TB HDD gives you enough storage for your needs.


The Acer Aspire V 15 V3-572G-543S is a very rare laptop for the 600 dollar price range as it has all the trappings of a good Multimedia Laptop with its Full HD Display and the on Paar RAM and HDD, but the big bonus comes in the form of the Nvidia GeForce GT840M graphics card. This turns this allready very good laptop into an amazing gaming laptop. I am very impressed with what Acer has been able to pull off with this laptop.

The list of cons for the Acer Aspire V 15 V3-572G-543S is basically just the lack of Bluetooth connectivity.


When I first decided to take a closer look at the Acer Aspire V 15 V3-572G-543S it was after I saw it's basic figures. It has not disappointed, and has come to show it has more than just a good graphics card. The fit and finish are good, it comes with a relatively rare Full HD display and thanks to its 5th Gen. i5 it also has the batterylife to keep it running for hours.

  1. Very nice review. I feel like youve actually tested the machine.Majority of the others I”ve read (trust me I’ve read a lot of them) all say the same things. Like they just rewrote Acer’s product page for the computer. You mentioned there’s no Bluetooth connectivity. I’ve seen elsewhere that its Bluetooth 4.0 compatible. I have a few questions also; is the battery user exchangeable? Also where are the vents located? Does it produce excessive heat? I had one more but seemed to have forgotten it. I’m interested in getting this laptop. After 10 days of searching I’ve narrowed it down to this one. Hopefully you’ll respond as quickly as you can. I wanted to order it tonight, but I’m still reading up on it. I’ve yet to see a mention of a replaceable battery. That was why I asked you about it. It may seem trivial to most, but its important to me. Who wants to be a wall hugger, lol! Know what I mean? Look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you!

    1. Hi Robert,
      Yes the battery pack can be removed. Here’s a photo of the underside: Underside Acer Aspire V3.
      I didn’t have a photo at the time of writing.
      The cooling vent is located on the left side and based on my experience with Intel i5s I think it will start getting hot only if you do prolonged gaming with it. A cooling pad is always a good idea for a laptop, no matter what brand/model, if you intend to do long gaming sessions. Mine has good cooling and still can lose performance without the cooling pad.
      As for the Bluetooth, other models, i.e. other product codes V3-572G-xxx may have Bluetooth, this one doesn’t.
      If you have other questions feel free to ask.
