Summary: The main reason I got this tablet was, because I wanted it for my dslr monitor app and read that it worked fine on this, plus not like other tablets this actually has a full USB port. Yes it's two years old, and yes it's probably slower.
Summary: I've had the A200 for 2 years now. I bought it because my laptop crashed and I needed something immediately and for business purposes. A year ago I started using it exclusively for home office/business use. A few months ago I purchased a keyboard case for it that has all but transformed it into a netbook/laptop. PRO: It only needs 2 hours to charge and discharges for 6-8 hours. Wow! (Constant Use) CON: Did you read the PRO?? Android OS has its problems, but dang!
Summary: I would choose this one over again. I love it! Rented a black one from a well known own to rent store prior to purchasing the Metallic Red. Had absolutely no problems with it. (Knock on wood) I haven't had a single problem with this one in the year I've owned it. I'm not technologically intelligent so I cannot go into specifics for that area. What I can tell you is... Its easy figure out, easy to use. The only thing I do not like is there is no back camera.
Summary: After researching several 10' tablets I decided on the Acer Iconia A200 based on it being priced within my budget. Let me first say that this tablet albeit on the heavy side, feels very strong & sturdy in the hands & has a nice rubber back casing for easy gripping. The battery life is decent & comparable with other tablets i've used, often going all day with moderate to constant use without dying, ofcourse this depends heavily on the type of activity you're engaging in...
Summary: I am configuring 6 of these tablets and while doing so I have not found an issue or problem with any of them. The only drawback I can see in the unit is the weight and no back camera, both of which were not requirements of mine. I researched a long time for a "name brand" 10" tablet that would have available accessories, supported apps, and which had been on the market long enough to get a large number of good and descriptive ratings.
