Acer Iconia Tab A210 review: great value plus a USB slot
8 March 2014
Excerpt: Although it’s still the iPad and, to some extent Samsung’s Galaxy lineup of tablets that grab the headlines, the future looks brightest for good value 10-inch tablets. The Google Nexus is perhaps the front-runner for now, but Acer’s Iconia A210 – a 10.1-inch tablet recently upgraded and now running...
Conclusion: The Acer Iconia Tab A210 is an affordable 10-inch tablet, carrying a price of $350. It has one key advantage that will appeal not just to geeks, but all users - a full-sized USB 2.0 port that allows you to hook up a flash drive, a keyboard or a mouse. Practical and versatile.
Pros: Has a full-sized USB port
Cons: Too thick and heavy to hold for long, Display not on par with competition, Sub-par battery life
Summary: Jelly Bean-toting 10.1-inch tablet with a great value spec - and a USB 2.0 slot
Pros: USB 2.0 slot, microSD card, Acer Ring, Good value, It might be built to meet a price, but we found the A210 solid and much more rugged than most, and with a mottled back that's soft and easy to grip. Its design is somewhat uninspiring, but the A210 stacks up pretty well against the competition: i...
Cons: Lacks HDMI output, Data-only microUSB, No rear camera, Average screen, There's no rear-facing camera, no HDMI output, the pixel density of such a big screen is almost archaic, and the general look and feel is rather industrial. The screen isn't quite as sharp as we'd hope We were also slightly al...
Excerpt: The market is flooded with several forgettable Android tablets but the Acer Iconia A210 aims to be not just another 10-inch slate. Reviews point out that despite its budget pricing of $300, the device boasts of a quad-core 1.2GHz Tegra 3 processor, a beautiful and sturdy design, and a neat array of...
Conclusion: The Acer Iconia Tab A210 is a tablet that exists in an awkward place. It doesn’t have the big name appeal or premium features of a £499 iPad or Transformer Prime, but it’s £65 more expensive than the equally powerful and overall more impressive Google Nexus 7 – it’s just this low-priced 10″ tablet.
Pros: Good build quality, Inexpensive for a 10″ tablet, Tegra 3 is as strong as ever
Cons: Uninspiring screen and speakers, No video out capabilities, Proprietary power connector
Excerpt: Fazit: Unter den 10-Zoll-Tablets ist das Acer Iconia eines der günstigsten Modelle und zeigt im Test ein gutes Handling. Als Zugeständnis an den Preis muss der Käufer allerdings einige Schwächen in den Bereichen Ausstattung und Mobilität hinnehmen.

12 April 2013
Summary: Das Acer Iconia Tab A210 ist ein günstiges 10 Zoll Tablet mit einem eher durchschnittlichen Display, ausreichender Performance, sowie flüssiger und schön angepasster Android Oberfläche. Praktisch ist der vollwertige USB Anschluss, dafür muss man auf einen Videoausgang verzichten.
