Summary: I really like the Oxonian, it does everything you could ask of it and never misses a beat. Only downside I can see is how much this thing gets finger printed and the flash washes out photos completely. Its a bit heavy too burning see that as a non~issue.
Pros: Lowprice, expandable, upgradable to 3.2, Dolby audio, good build quality and materials
Cons: No update to is 4, screen finger prints like there's no tomorrow.
Summary: I purchased mine used, using Amazon for the payment system, just in case :) Arrived quickly, and after looking at it closely, I truly couldn't tell it was refurbished. Everything works and I tested it very, very closely for defects. Only Issue so far is GPS is very, very slow to lock on, but when it does it works perfectly.
Summary: The good: -The case is metal, which gives it a nice feel. -USB (micro and full-size) - If you're so inclined, you can plug a USB hub into the USB port and then connect a keyboard and mouse. A cursor appears on screen when using a mouse (if you're using Android 3.2), so it feels like a regular computer. I make regular use of this feature. -HDMI - You'll need a micro HDMI-to-HDMI adapter to connect it to your TV, but those are cheap. The HDMI output works as advertised.
Summary: Pros: USB port for storage/keyboard - Allows for massive amounts of movies/music/photos unlike 90% of other tabs without adaptors. HDMI port - Watch movies/play games on a big screen from your tab. Plenty of power for most tasks, will run 3d games such as dead trigger and need for speed shift no problem. Cons: Software sometimes buggy (usually ok). A little heavier than some tabs. HDMI is a micro cable, harder to find than say a mini HDMI as used with camcorders.
Summary: The product arrived two days late, not because of the vendor, but becuase Amazon used 'Home' delivery service who drove past my house three times taking it to every depot in the West Midlands to get it delivered to my house (apparantly nothing to do with Amazon, which I can't work out). Anyway, the product is great. Very well built and sturdy which is what I expect from ACER.
Summary: Excellent tablet. Came up to all my expectations. Apple I pad is no match to this tablet. Only slight difference is in the rather slower start when switching on the tablet. In that department I pad is faster but the a501 has many more plus points over I pad such as the USB port, HDMI facility, availability for Adobe flash etc. The Acer is slightly heavier than the I pad which is also slimmer but I did not find that to be a problem.
Summary: Weighty, conveying a sense of quality. Easy to set up. OS is robust with a polished UI. Comes with enough pre-installed software to satisfy most end-user requirements. Charges quite quickly after first time. With 3g you can pop in a SIM from a mobile broadband dongle and you're up and running. You should set the WIFI disconnect policy to "Never when plugged in" so that the WIFI takes precedence over 3g.
