Acer Iconia W4 review

24 July 2014
  • Excerpt: While PC market heavyweights have shelved their Windows RT tablets, the new Acer Iconia W4 joins the growing number of new compact x86 Windows models. But in this group at least, the W4 comes with the highest price tag of $449. The 8-inch screen delivers the same basic specs as the Toshiba Encore – standard TFT LCD and 1280×800-pixel resolution. Both also use the same quad-core Atom Z3740 processor.

Acer Iconia W4 Tablet Review

20 March 2014
  • Conclusion: As one of the key selling points on a tablet, the display – save for the low resolution – is among the stronger points of the W4. I do wish it would get a bit brighter to help with readability under bright lights and when outdoors but otherwise, there isn’t much to complain about. Viewing angles are excellent and color reproduction is very pleasing. I also didn’t run into any touch screen-related issues as everything worked as it should.

Acer Iconia W4 Review

28 December 2013
  • Summary: If you are comfortable with Windows and are open to the idea of getting yourself a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, then the Acer Iconia W4 will make a good buy. However, if you're looking for a pure tablet experience that will give you optimal portability, you'd be better off considering the new Nexus 7 or the iPad Mini.
  • Pros: Good performance, Solid build, Comes with Windows
  • Cons: Windows 8 isn't a very good tablet OS, Needs a Bluetooth keyboard+mouse to achieve full potential

Acer Iconia W4 review: Affordable 8-inch Atom-based Windows tablet

25 April 2014
  • Summary: Summary: This affordable 8-inch Atom-based (Bay Trail) Windows 8.1 tablet has a nice IPS screen and delivers all-day battery life under light usage modes. Limited screen size, internal storage and processing power will prevent it from being more than a companion device for mobile professionals though.

  • Cons: Ergonomics for business productivity could be better, Short on internal storage, Not suitable for demanding workloads
