Acer Iconia W3 (64GB)

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Acer Iconia W3 is the first 8-inch Windows 8 tablet, offered at an affordable price, but this little tablet falls short.
  • Pros: Smallest Windows 8 tablet on the market. Small form factor is portable and convenient. Long battery life.
  • Cons: Sub-par display. Shoddy accessory keyboard.

When I first picked up the W3, I was immediately surprised by the weight of it. At 500g (just over a pound) it's much heavier than the iPad mini or Nexus 7, and it's a lot chubbier too. The entire screen is encased in cheap-feeling plastic, with a black bezel around the display, a white casing, and a gray rear. The colors complement each other to make the device look less cheap, but even though it looks okay, it doesn’t feel that great.

  • Summary: There’s no way I can recommend the W3 right now, at all. It’s the first 8-inch Windows 8 tablet, but the hardware sucks. Acer can do so much better here, even for a budget device.
  • Pros: Windows 8 works well in portrait mode, Good battery life, Windows 8.1 update coming soon
  • Cons: Terrible display, Bulky and heavy, No Windows 8 app snapping

Hands-on: Acer Iconia W3 review

Pocket Lint
4 June 2013
  • Excerpt: With the Iconia W3, its new 8.1-inch Windows 8 tablet, Acer is hoping to put a fully-functioning desktop in the palm of your hand and wipe out the need for the iPad mini or Nexus 7 at the same time. It seems it might well have achieved exactly that.

Acer Iconia W3 review: Windows 8 op een 8 inch scherm

5 November 2014
  • Conclusion: Het beeldscherm van deze Acer Iconia W3 is al direct een dooddoener. De kwaliteit is niet goed genoeg om in aanmerking te komen voor ook maar een kleine voldoende. Hoewel de prestaties goed te noemen zijn en de accuduur verrassend goed is kunnen we niet tevreden zijn over het eerste kleine schepsel...
  • Pros: + Goede geluidskwaliteit, + Prima prestaties, + Goede accuduur (vs. andere Windows 8 tablets), + Microsoft Office 2013 (Home & Student – touch), – Relatief dik en zwaar (vs. andere 8 inch tablets), – Enorm slechte beeldschermkwaliteit, – 32 GB-versie is te weinig opslag, – Te kleine iconen in des...

Men, siden dette er en ikke-vektet gjennomsnitt, Vi forbeholder oss retten til å finpusse den totale poengsummen hvis vi føler at det ikke reflekterer vår generelle vurdering og pris på produktet.
