11 July 2012

Acer Iconia Tab W500 review

12 June 2012
  • Summary: Hybrid designs are not new in the world of tablets, but they aren't exactly common either. The Acer Iconia Tab W500 tablet is a slate-style machine--all of its guts are behind the screen, and it can stand on its own as a tablet--but it also comes with a keyboard dock for occasions when you want a laptop-style experience. Unfortunately, rather than offering the best of both worlds, the W500 presents you with a lot of compromises.

Acer Iconia W500 Windows 7 Tablet Review

18 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Not too long ago it seems I was itching to get my hands on an iPad. And I did, and I loved it and I use it well. But soon there were other options out there to check out in Android tablets, and then Windows tablets.  With the mass of tablets on the market today it may be hard to decide which one is right for you.

Acer Iconia Tab W500-BZ467

PC Magazine
28 August 2011
  • Conclusion: The Acer Iconia Tab W500-BZ467 has the best Windows experience we've seen on a tablet, thanks to its docking keyboard. Lose that and the Iconia Tab loses a lot of its appeal.
  • Pros: 10.1-inch screen that supports 720p. HDMI with 1080p output. 32GB SSD is speedy and silent. Docking keyboard returns functionality to Windows.
  • Cons: Weak processor. Small SSD. User experience diminishes without the keyboard.

Review Acer Iconia Tab W500 Keydock Notebook

20 May 2011
  • Summary: Tablet-book. A tablet that you can transform into a netbook without much ado is what Acer has created with the Iconia Tab W500. But not only the design causes a rage, the technical innards also attract attention with AMD's C-50 CPU and HD 6250 graphics chip. We checked the performance in comparison to the standard configuration of comparable netbooks and tablets.
  • Pros: Contrast rich, viewing angle stable and bright display, Large scope of functions, also due to Windows 7, Fairly good application performance, Good battery life, Almost silent use, Good workmanship quality, Stable case, Good value for money ratio, Separate keyboard, including port replicator, The docking concept with its extended possibilities. Windows 7 with its usual large functionality and the well suitable display.
  • Cons: Partly instable docking construction, Fairly high weight, Reflective display surface with visible grid, Small mass memory for Windows 7, Little support for finger control, No stylus input, A modified surface that would be better for finger control. A stylus option and the resulting alternative use option. A matt display surface and faster interfaces.
