Acer Iconia Tab W500-BZ467

PC Magazine
29 June 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.
  • 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 ...
  • 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 us...

Acer Iconia Tab W500

Pocket Lint
9 May 2011
  • Conclusion: The Iconia Tab W500 wants to be the best of both worlds; in the end it's one of the nicest Windows tablets we've seen so far (barring the small size of the on-screen keyboard) and that's both praise and complaint.
  • 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

Acer Iconia Tab W500. ¿Tablet con teclado o netbook convertible?

13 August 2012
  • Summary: Estamos ante un equipo muy bien realizado. Si estamos de acuerdo con su concepto de combinar entretenimiento y productividad mediante el sistema Windows 7, no nos defraudará. Sólo se lamenta que sea un poco más pesada que el resto de las tablets del mercado y que el almacenamiento no sobrepase los...

Acer Iconia Tab W500P-C52G03iss

27 November 2011
  • Conclusion: Acer Iconia Tab W500P oferuje znacznie więcej niż standardowe tablety z Androidem. Jednak to wcale nie znaczy, że jest od nich lepszy. Windows 7 nie sprawdza się w tabletach. Jeżeli jednak nie możesz przekonać się do Androida to Iconia Tab W500P będzie dobrym wyborem.
  • Pros: Stacja dokująca z klawiaturą, Pełnowymiarowe gniazda USB i HDMI, Duży ekran
  • Cons: Wolna praca

Acer Iconia Tab W500: Hybrid med imponerande skärm

18 August 2011
  • Summary: Test Acer Iconia Tab W500 är den felande länken mellan minidator och surfplatta. Skärmen och nederdelen sitter ihop enbart med en usb-kontakt.
  • Pros: Bra prestanda, Praktisk konstruktion, Mycket bra bildskärm
  • Cons: Högt pris, Fortfarande bitvis segt med Windows, Buggig dockning

Test: Acer Iconia Tab W500 (Tablet)

CHIP Online
15 August 2011
  • Conclusion: Die Idee, die hinter dem Acer Iconia Tab W500 steckt, ist eigentlich ganz gut: Mit Windows 7 und der Docking-Station dient es als Tablet und Netbook zugleich. Doch die Umsetzung überzeugt nicht: Erstens ist es dafür mit rund 650 Euro (
  • Pros: Optionale Tastatur, Sehr gutes Display
  • Cons: Windows 7 reagiert sehr träge, Zu schwer, Durchschnittliche Akkulaufzeit

Acer Iconia W500 im Test: Windows-7-Tablet mit Ansteck-Tastatur

13 April 2011
  • Summary: Tablet oder Notebook? Vor dieser Entscheidung dürften derzeit viele Käufer in Spe stehen. Tablets sind mit ihrem kompakteren und leichteren Formfaktor einfach praktischer und machen rein optisch mehr her. Aber wenn man längere Texte tippen möchte, führt einfach kein Weg am Notebook vorbei.
  • Pros: Multitouch-Display mit guten Blickwinkeln, komfortable Tastatur
  • Cons: zu langsame CPU, Windows 7 ist für Fingerbedienung ungeeignet, nur 32 GByte SSD-Speicher, spiegelndes Display
