Crap!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
8 June 2013
  • 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!

Do NOT buy the A100

Peter Brawley, Amazon
24 May 2013
  • 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.

Horribly made

Buddy Smith, Amazon
4 April 2013
  • 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.

it was nice until it broke

Irine Gibilisco, Amazon
29 March 2013
  • Summary: the tablet was nice in the beginning, and the price was about half of its competition. the 7" size was perfect for my pocketbook. and then.... it started to slow down. and then when ICS came out and it updated itself it started disintegrating. first the wifi stopped working, so I sent it in for a warrantee repair. It came back with new OS, but still no wifi. So I sent it back again, and it then came back with fixed wifi and even more software updates.

Bad motherboard, Worse customer service.

Randy, Amazon
22 March 2013
  • 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.

ICONIA A100 8GB-maintenance nightmare

@Mead57 "mediomonti", Amazon
26 December 2011
  • 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.

Don't Buy

Levianan, Amazon
4 December 2011
  • 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: Product would not play any mp3 files or videos either. Rest of device was actually pretty impressive but not playing any media is a monstrous bug.

Read This If You Are Considering This Tablet

J. Garcia, Amazon
29 November 2011
  • Summary: Right out of the package it looks and feels nice. Instantly upon turning it on you notice that the screen has an awkward effect on your eyes no matter what angle or orientation you hold it in. The viewing angle of the screen sucks. Holding it in portrait gives small variances in contrast and color in each eye and if you turn it to landscape you have to hold it at only one exact angle for the picture to look descent. Performance wise, it seems to be pretty fast.

Horrible Device

Kshitij Shukla, Amazon
20 November 2011
  • Summary: Received it and returned it within 24 hrs of receiving it. Not sure if it was my specific device, but it bricked on me in less than 8 hours of use. Didn't really care for the Android skin that is specific to Acer either.
