Summary: I got the tablet earlier than the estimated delivery date. It worked great for about two months, then turned into a brick. I looked online, and it seems this is a known problem with the A100 tablet. Acer nor the company I bought this from would help. Was a total waste of money. I have had great experiences with re-manufactured electronics and with Acer, but I won't mix the two again. Don't waste the money!
Summary: In early 2012 the A100 looked like a good 7" tablet deal. True, it was underpowered, it had a grainy screen, and battery life was too short. But it was useable, it ran a current version of Android, it was sturdy, it appeared Android operating system upgrades would continue, it had full access to the Android market, it had microUSB and HDMI connectors and two cameras, and it was somewhat cheaper than comparable 7" tablets.
Summary: This is the first Acer product I've bought and it will be the last. The warranty expired literally 10 days before the screen failed (which is just 90 days). They wouldn't accept it as an exchange, got it repaired and it failed again. Stay away.
Summary: My wifes tablet worked great for 14 months then locked up and would not get past the acer screen. I did some research and found this is a common problem with a bad motherboard. i contacted Acer and was told send it in and we can fix it for $200. Almost the same price for a new one. When asked why I should remain a acer customer they hung up on me twice. I would stay away from acer like the plauge.
Summary: I was very excited to get this tablet a year ago. However, it's been back to ACER twice for repair. The second time they replaced the motherboard when the system locked up. Yesterday the same lock up issued happened again and I'm out of warranty. My Iconia is now just a paper weight. I wouldn't spend a dime for repair so I'm purchasing the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 today. Sorry ACER...I'm done with you guys.
Summary: Iconia A100 Tablet. I'll keep this short. This tablet works well with Android 3.2. Applications are snappy and wireless works well. Pros: Snappy machine Droid 3.2, Solid specs. Great form factor. Solid, light, and very portable. Cons: The screen is somewhat hallucigenic at times. This has been covered here. No USB charge. Which made my last problem unbearable.

Summary: Do not buy this tablet it has a bad chip you can read my review. i loved it but 2 times in a year and a half the emmc chip has died. Look up Acer A100 brick. I wrote this review after buying this tablet for $329. I would still spend it a year later. I love this tablet. I had a Vizio tablet for a week and it crashed a lot and would not use most of the apps I wanted, not even the Facebook app . I returned it and got this one WOW the difference.
Summary: I could live with the limited battery life if it was easy and convenient to charge. I have mini and micro USB cables everywhere, even in the car. But this tablet charges from a proprietary mains adapter, I'm not going to always have that with me, that's a deal breaker.
Summary: I have had my Acer A100 tablet for less than three months. It died a few days ago. While it worked, it was great. But then, one morning and despite being fully charged, it would not boot up. I pressed the power button and waited for the tell-tale buzz. Nothing. I tried the standard reset. Nothing. I tried the factory reset (hold down the volume button as you switch on). Nothing.
