Review: 3D - are we there yet?

 

Acer Aspire 5745DG -5454G50Bnks comes with power, battery and communication LEDs. The LEDs are placed on the side and they’re clearly visible when the display is closed.

Once the battery is charged, the indicator will glow blue.

The picture below shows the large, round power button with a blue LED. Next to it are HDD, Num Lock and Caps Lock LEDs. The speakers are in the same row, and they’re pretty decent.

Optical drive is released via the button on the right side, above the numeric keyboard. Next to it is a button marked with P (P stands for programmable), for which we initially didn’t know what it does.

As you can see from the picture above, the power-in connector is on the right side of the laptop. The same side holds Blu-ray Disc/Super-Multi DL combo drive and three USB 2.0 connectors.

The fourth USB 2.0 connector is on the opposite side. Note that Acer Aspire 5745DG does not have USB 3.0 connectors.

Acer Aspire 5745DG comes with one HDMI and one VGA out. Multimedia enthusiasts will be glad to see 3DTV Play support, which means you can play 3D video on a 3D TV capable device via the HDMI. For that you’ll need Nvidia’s 3DTV Play software which is a free upgrade for 3D Vision computer owners (You can find the complete list of HDMI 1.4 3D TVs supported by 3DTV Play here).
