Acer Iconia W510 review: Windows 8 finally does good
8 March 2014
Conclusion: The Acer Iconia W5 is a shockingly robust lappitablet. It’s comes with a great battery life, a class-leading screen, USB 2.0, an excellent optional keyboard and much more. It’s a great device for daily use thanks to its instant-on startup and HD-streaming capabilities.
Excerpt: The brand isn’t exactly synonymous with slimline tablets, yet the new incarnation of the Iconia Series sees an effort at making the tablet line more in the mind presence. For starters, they move away from the early chunky heritage, topped with the aluminumish touch seen across their Windows 8...
Pros: Design curvature, 360 degree hinge, Battery life
Conclusion: All told, the Acer Iconia Tab W510 is a very capable Windows 8 tablet that can handle light x86 Windows app use and is more than capable to run Live Tile apps that are built-in or downloaded from the MS app store. For those of you who love the MS Surface RT form factor and weight, the 1.3 lb.
Pros: Affordable and highly portable tablet that runs x86 Windows 7 apps. Lovely display, excellent battery life. Lots of value for tablet's price (keyboard dock makes it somewhat pricey).
Cons: Modern UI runs fine, but the Windows 7 desktop mode and apps lag. Optional keyboard is cramped.
Excerpt: This Windows 8-powered convertible tablet has the ability to twist up to 295 degrees in its keyboard dock so you can easily share what's on display. The Iconia W510-1432 has features like AcerCloud for sharing your files between your devices and Acer Instant Connect to link to Internet hotspots...
Pros: Very large screen for its size, Light for its size, Many connectivity options, Fast system speed, Consumer testers loved the home button placement
Cons: Consumer testers did not like the keyboard layout, Below average resolution, Subpar audio quality
Summary: The Acer ICONIA W510 is a tablet of good quality even if not excellent, Whose main feature is the detachable keyboard docking, Which Allows to use similar to that of a laptop, but the price that also increases compared to other tablets.
Pros: Windows 8; HDMI port; Autonomy, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, Design, detachable keyboard docking; Front Camera.
Excerpt: After my middling feelings about Acer's Iconia W700 , the Iconia W510 comes as a nice surprise. It's in roughly the same vein as the HP Envy X2 : a tablet PC that docks into a keyboard, with batteries in both the keyboard and main unit.
Summary: If you’re on the lookout for something which lasts a lot, then Acer’s Iconia Tab W510-1422 might just be what you need. This hybrid of a gadget is also great if you want a product to be used on the go. However, its processor isn’t fantastic.
Excerpt: It might not be quite as cheap as the most affordable Windows RT tablets but Acer is definitely aiming for thinner wallets with this Windows 8-powered hybrid. Bought without the keyboard it’ll set you back around $700 putting it right in line with Apple’s iPad 4 and other Windows RT devices with the...
Pros: Fantastic battery life very portable solid performance.
Cons: Not a lot of storage screen bounces when docked no GPS.
Excerpt: It�s hard to put into words the impact that mobile technology has had on the computing industry thus far. We�re clearly in the middle of an enormous shift, moving from a time when desktop machines and notebook computers dominated the landscape to what�s commonly referred to as the post-PC era.
