Screen to washed Out - Half the Viewability Of Say An Ipad

Summary: I love Acer products and have always in the world of laptop parity Acer products has the edge in quality. Not so with the Acer W510. The screen looks washed out no matter how you te=weak the Windows screen settings. Set up next to say the Dell Latitude 10 the screen appears dimmer (both on max brightness settings) and less color. It's important to have max clarity in a 10" screen if you're over 45.
Summary: Response is sluggish, using the tablet screen to navigate is clumsy and the links way too small. For the arm of the recliner for casual lookups and to keep track of my knitting, it's okay. But I learned that I am spoiled to superior performance and won't spend my money on anything less that a performance machine regardless of its form factor.
Summary: My first Windows Tablet, before i used ipad. Well let me say that it runs fine, quick, start up very fast, The only thing i dont like is Speakers are bit low value, and windows freezes sometimes, Other than that , its fine,
Summary: This Acer Iconia W510 is rather cute but I find it kind of wobbly where the tablet sits into the plastic slot of the keyboard. (other brands use metal contacts) Don't know how long that will last. The battery life is great at up to 15 hours or so depending on the kind of work you do. At 2 G RAM and 64 GB memory. it is adequate but not fast. The sound diaappeared a number of times when I left it for a while and I had to reboot from the very start to regain the sound.
Summary: the iconia clovertrail tablet pc has a great set of specs but it falls short in delivering a satisfying user experience. besides the win8 makeover the touch screen does not feel consistent. both touch location and sensitivity are variable depending on application and locatiion on screen. pretty annoying. could not do a radio button selection, instead it kept grabbing the text for copy selection. i had to magnify a lot to touch the selection.
Summary: I was surprised at the problems I have had with this machine. We have several Acer machines in the family, (my wife has an 10 inch android Iconia and a Acer Windows netbook; my daughter a 7 inch Iconia and my son has.a W500 with windows 7. All are doing just fine. So I had no problem ordering the W510 with Windows 8. I gave it three stars because I think, with the experience we have had with Acer, I probably received one that is defective.
Summary: Acer gave it a good shot. It's a nicely built device. Though the materials are not quite prime, but everything is done quite right. The plastic doesn't feel that cheat. The trackpad is not known for good functionality, but as a single-touch trackpad, it works 99% of the time. The tablet part is built solid, and you definitely don't hear clicks when pressing on the edges of the screen. The battery is fantastic.
Very happy with this tablet (EDITED - Downgraded!)

Summary: My W510 arrived very well packaged. After unpacking I powered it up and ran through the setup. My overall impression is that the W510 seems very sturdy. Finally a form factor that Windows 8 belongs on! The overall speed and reliability has been surprisingly good. This device has replaced my laptop for work and travel with great success. At home I still use my more powerful laptop. (EDIT) Well after less than a year I am unhappy to say this device no longer impresses me.
