Summary: It's not an Ipad or a Samsung, but it gets the job done. We did have to send it back to Acer about 6 months after we bought it because the Hard Drive completely died, but Acer's customer support was great. Sent it back within a few weeks with all fixed. it seems to get bogged down and frequent reformats are neccessary to keep it running smooth, but I can't argue with the screen and audio clarity. WiFi works well.
Summary: it worked for a while. after so long the whole system became very slow and sluggish. had to do a factory reset, reinstall some apps, and it was fast again. the device doesnt support all apps which is dissapointing, but it never says what functionality exactly causes that issue. after almost a year the power button, the ONLY button on the device, stopped working. i could not power on/off the device, or put into or bring it out of standby mode.
Summary: This is my first tablet and I love it, I got it at a great price. I would say $250USD or less is a reasonable price for this tablet. I don't think spending twice the money for an I-Pad. Is worth it plus Android has more free apps than Apple dose in my opinion. The only con I have about this tablet is that its little heavy the battery is good its last about 8 hours and that is from watching movies and shows on Netflix.
Summary: I have only had my Acer Iconia for about a month but so far, I love it. It is just a little heavier than other tablets but I bought a case for it and it works fine. Lots of good apps on it and with some 'experimenting', you can navigate on it really well. I would recommend it to anyone. Great price too considering others on the market. It is also Android so you get alot of things that you can get on the other pricier tablets.
Summary: Very nice construction and slick operation. But I'm a computer geek and I seem to be having trouble adjusting to the 'simplicity' of this operating system. Trying to click on a small link or virtual keyboard is somewhat tedious. Its hard to beat the accuracy and preciseness of a real keyboard and laser mouse. I may just be too 'old school' for this technology.
Summary: I got this tablet a couple weeks ago and I've used it every day since. I did as much research as I could before picking which one to get and this one seemed easily one of the best deals for the money. Especially since I got the refurbished version and saved $200 over new. I've never had a tablet pc before so I really have nothing to compare it to personally. It feels heavier than it looks, but I might just be a wimp.
Summary: I bought the tablet in January, had to send it back twice to the Acer repair center. First because it would not get past the welcome screen. The second time because it would not pick up a wifi signal. Warranty covered both issues. Works fine now. Not a bad tablet for the money.
