Summary: Purchased the Iconia W3 32GB version at Office Depot for $349 (64GB was $379). Tested for 8 days - During the 8-day stretch; never shut it down, created 3 users and downloaded apps, used MS Office frequently, used the camera frequently, tested video and sound quality frequently and installed/tested legacy programs frequently, nothing seems to slow this down.
Pros: Pros: Small - fits in the palm, Fast - for an ATOM, Awesome Battery Life, Can use Legacy Programs, Storage Expansion and bluetooth devices, such as keyboard(s) work fantastic.
Cons: Cons: Front and Rear cameras could be better and no camera flash.
Summary: The screen size and weight is great. The network connectivity is great. Screen is almost impossible to use around edges. So browser tabs, url fields are nearly unusable. 2gbs of ram is simply not enough tobrun the full windows 8 or 8.1 os. These two factors turn a great tablet into a frustrating nightmare.
Summary: I picked one of these up at a heavily reduced 'clearance' price after looking at some larger screen variants. It's the 64gb version which is advisable as Windows takes up a significant portion of the space. I'm not going to focus on specifications and the screen as this has been well covered in other reviews. I will say that while the screen is not great compared to other current tablets, it is perfectly usable and adequate.
Summary: I own 2 iPad's and 1 iPad Mini. It became more and more frustrating to me how restricted these technically perfect tablets are. Everything has to be handled through iTunes on a PC. So, you need to have a PC too. Secondly, the iPad's are very restricted with regard to movie formats. And thus, very frustrated, I decided to buy the Acer which was on offer to test the Windows 8 environment. Here are just a few of my observations: 1. The Acer came with 64 GB on board.
Summary: The clue is in the specs. Intel. Windows 8. Anyone moaning about the screen quality has to realise how cheap this tablet actually is once you factor in the Win8 and MS Office Home and Student licences. I've got several Android tablets which stay in the cupboard now. And a desktop PC which gets used less than it did. The W3-810 lets you do virtually anything you want.
Summary: I'm very happy with this tablet. It's a present for my son's 15th birthday, and he has hardly put it down since having it. He does his home work with it and keeps in touch with friends. As I only brought it a short time ago, I can't comment on it more but its seem sound.
Summary: I wanted a portable computer for me to take to and from university with me to save carrying my laptop and this was the cheapest Windows tablet that I could find. I really like the Windows 8 interface and there are plenty of apps installed on it. I was very impressed that a full edition of Microsoft Office is included with the tablet, you just enter the product key that comes enclosed in the box and you're ready to go.
Summary: If you need a small well built built windows tablet with great battery life this could be for you but it has such a crap screen. We have other Iconia tablets which are great so I have no idea why this is so useless. Apartment from the screen it's really good.
