Some heating issues, but otherwise just as advertised.

Summary: I'll try to be brief. Pros: - Wide, pleasing screen size, good heft to the tablet itself - Acer Ring works as advertised, love the Lock Screen shortcut - New update to the Settings has made life easier, especially the ability to turn Bluetooth on and off with just a tap - Love the graphics, has taken and chewed up every game and movie I've thrown at it - Decent sound; wasn't expecting too much on this end, but it was clearer than my old laptop - I love the function of...
Summary: It's a good product and since my cellphone is an android too, I'm familiar with the system. However, it occasionally freezes and I have to wait for it to unfreeze. That's why I didn't give it 5 stars.
Summary: I waited anxiously to purchase this back in April after seeing its specifications, such as the quad core processor and Android 4.0. To my dismay, I was sold an awful tablet. Apps crash on it all of the time; the volume and power buttons cause the speakers to crackle when pressed; resuming from sleep takes about 5 seconds (which happened after an Acer repair); factory reset fails, as well as other issues.
Summary: Well, this is the 4th, yes 4th, tablet I ordered from Amazon in 3 weeks. The first 2 were supposed to be brand new and were obviously used. Neither one worked properly (crashes, freezes, started doing stuff on their own). In addition, the 2nd had multiple cracks in the screen. The 3rd one never powered/charged up even after charging over night! I was ready to give up when I decided to try the Asus Iconia A510. Very glad I did!
Summary: I own three Kindles including the original Fire, four laptops, and one desktop computer. I kept putting off buying a tablet until I was sure the features and pricing made since. I visited Best Buy and a few other electronics stores to test drive a variety of tablets that I thought might do the trick, including the Apple Ipads.
Summary: I was so glad to help my dad purchase an android tablet after impressing upon him that there are other options out there than a limited ripoff ipad when he saw how much more capable my Asus tf700 is with slots, ports, and connectivity. Lucky for him I had done so much research on these tablets before when I was torn between Acer and Asus products as my top choices. In particular the A510 for better performance since it runs at lower res than the A700.
Summary: So, I've got a Nexus 7, which I never see anymore, because my stepdaughter confiscated it months ago. I was waiting for the Nexus 10, but a price of 4 big bills and mixed reviews, I thought I'd look for a 10 inch Android tablet alternative elsewhere. My mother-in-law bought an Acer Iconia 500 over a year ago and seemed pleased, but at the time I thought 5 bills was a bit high and pre-ICS was not so attractive.
Summary: I purchased my Iconia a510 a few days ago, and I have to say it's been pretty awesome! And that battery life is just amazing. Design: Pretty comfortable to hold. Rounded edges with a kind of rubber coating and a perforated plastic/rubber backing. Display: Good TFT LCD screen. Very good viewing angles. Can be very bright! I only use it at 50% or less. As other reviewers have pointed out, if you look very closely (1 ft away), you'll notice a grid effect.
Summary: I have been researching tablets for a month. My brother has a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, and my kids have a IPad 1. I played with the Samsung for about 3 hours one night, and it seemed decent. However, the Samsung was like the IPad..... only one "do all" port at the bottom, no expansion possibilities, and accessory dongles that you need to purchase for USB or HDMI.
Summary: I've read some of the other reviews. Seems a few people have had legitimate tech problems, sorry to hear that. I have not. I have not had a single issue with this thing at all. I've had it since release date, preordered it here on amazon. Since then I've put it through its paces. Its never frozen, never went "grey screen", never gotten too hot.
