  • Summary: After recieving the it it looked really good for being a refurbish tablet but can`t say much more then that because I was never able to to get past the internet login screen the touch function did not work I did soft reset as well as hard and never even got back to the internet login screen. So it had to be returned and I am now waiting for a full refund.

  • Summary: The tablet is a pretty good system. Like all the others though, it has it's ups and downs. Nice surprise was the OEM Acer case. The screen is really nice and very clear. The games it comes with show nicely on the display. I haven't watched a movie on it yet since it can't play AVI, which is a huge headache. That's all I have currently for electronic movies. I'll have to look for another player app. The wireless is where I seem to have issues.

Just get a laptop.

  • Summary: If you have a smartphone with android you have one already. There isn't alot of aps made for the android pads yet and the regular android phone aps crash on this. The worst part is that this doesn't support netflix which was one of the main reasons i bought it. It really isnt a good value considering you can buy a decent laptop in this price range that will do all of what this can do and more.

good, but it is just not quite ready....

  • Summary: This is a great product, the hardware is solidly constructed, specs are great (albeit identical to all other android tabs). Screen is bold and bright- at least when its not covered with prints. The problem(s) I've had are with the software: honeycomb is a little jittery... I've a had a few system freezes and lots of flickering transitions. The Android folks will work these thing out- just like 2.2 was much less polished than 2.3, but waiting sucks.

  • Summary: Yes its a bit weighty and yes the screen is great but the real issue is Android Market, which for the Acer is absolutely hopeless. About 90% of apps (free and paid) can't be downloaded and all you get is an error message saying "Can't be downloaded in your country" or "Not available for your device". There is said to be a work around using a free app, but guess what, you can't download that either.
  • Pros: screen
  • Cons: andoriod market

  • Excerpt: bonne tablette pour du multimédia/web, un peu moins pour les jeux gourmands en ressources et les vidéos en full HD selon le lecteur !
