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.

Acer W500-BZ467

6 December 2011
  • Summary: The Acer Iconia Tab W500 works in several potentially good ideas, undone by half-baked physical design that makes it needlessly frustrating to use.
  • Pros: The Acer Iconia Tab W500 has a clever design that allows you to detach its Netbook-like screen for use as a standalone tablet.
  • Cons: The keyboard dock is a pain to connect or disconnect; you can't simply fold it shut like a laptop; and there's no touch pad, only a trackpoint stick.

Acer Iconia Tab W500 review

Pocket Lint
9 May 2011
  • Excerpt: How do you make a Windows tablet usable? You include a keyboard. That's not actually a fair description of the Acer Iconia Tab W500 (which is nowhere near as ungainly as its name), but the Tab doesn't manage to solve all the issues with using Windows on a tablet.
  • Pros: Bright, beautiful colourful screen with excellent touch resolution and excellent sound make this a great little media tablet, and the C-50 processor is a step above an Atom
  • Cons: The price and the battery life are only good for a Windows tablet - not compared to iPad or Android, the keyboard dock is an excellent idea poorly executed
