[Head-To-Head] ASUS Transformer Prime Vs. Acer Iconia Tab A510
9 May 2013
Summary: I'm not going to call on overall winner here, because I don't think it's fair to name one "better" than the other. Much like with smartphones, the way each individual uses their tablet constitutes which one is the "best" one for them, and both of these tablets are absolutely fantastic devices.
Acer Iconia Tab A510 Review: 10.1 Inches Of Grade A Android Tablet
27 April 2013
Summary: After spending several days using the A510 full-time, I can honestly say that it offers one of the best tablet experiences that I've ever had. It's fast, fluid, feels great, has good battery life, and Acer didn't overload it with custom crapware.
Summary: May 7 2012 - The Acer Iconia Tab A510 offers some impressive performance and battery life in a 10-inch tablet thanks to the new Tegra 3 processor from NVIDIA. Usability and stability have also improved thanks to the new Android 4.0 operating system.
Conclusion: The story of Acer's tablets is that they were decent enough tablets, but offered very little additional value over its competitors. The price of the Acer Iconia Tab A510 is below that of the Eee Pad Transformer Prime and above that of the Transformer Pad TF300, both by ASUS.
Excerpt: Acer has built something of an empire hawking inexpensive wares, and its forays into the tablet market haven’t been much different. The Iconia Tab A510 looks strikingly similar to its predecessor, the Iconia Tab A500 .
Pros: Inexpensive, for a 10-inch tablet, Decent display
Cons: Thicker and heavier than the competition, Mediocre cameras, Awkward speaker placement can muffle the sound
Conclusion: As we do with every tablet that passes through our labs, we tried hard with this one to find something not to like. And we didn't find much. Here in 2012, lots of pretty good Android tablets are available, and choosing among them all is an exercise in balancing fine points.
Pros: Tegra 3 processor, Latest version of Android (ICS) preinstalled, Excellent performance, Well-built
