Great on -screen keyboard

Adorama
17 July 2014
  • Excerpt: The keyboard is as good as it gets. Have not tried the bluetooth. The tablet seems to be well designed and well built. It takes several minutes to boot and the screen may go blank any number of times when doing so. It is hard to believe that there is an I5 processor on board as it is very slow and the screen is most often unresponsive to repeated tappings of the stylus.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Long Battery Life
  • Cons: Limited Storage, Poor Software Bundle, Slow

Waste of money and time - Microsoft and Acer have teamed up for monumental screw job

Thomas W. Dean, Amazon
15 July 2014
  • Summary: This is a poorly conceived design. Because there is no product key sticker on the tablet and because I have not been able to locate the Microsoft Product Key in any of the packaging nor in order confirmation emails, I have been unable to reinstall Windows 8 via the Internet. Recovery and system DVDs are included but the tablet will not recognize my USB DVD player. I am A+ Certified and I have assembled many computers and performed numerous OS installs.

An expensive disappointment

Christian M. Mericle, Amazon
4 May 2014
  • Summary: Its Wi-Fi reception is weak, but I can deal with that. What I can't deal with is how amazing slow it is. Using the web (e.g., Facebook) and/or Word with a mouse connected (Bluetooth, USB wireless, or USB corded), the system is so slow that the pointer won't even track across the screen without pausing. I opened a ticket with Acer, and they had me return it to them for service. Their solution was to restore it to factory defaults, but that did not solve the problem.

Problem with the SSD hard drive

Davit Antadze, Amazon
4 February 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this tablet 5 weeks ago. It had problems with touchscreen and Bluetooth from the begging. The touch was not sensitive and Bluetooth devices were not working properly. However I was able to fix it later. Today, when I turned on the tablet is gives me a massage - No bootable Device. I tried many recommendations and it turns out that the SSD hard drive is dead only after 5 WEEKS of use! this is horrible!!! Hard drives should not dye after 5 weeks of use!!!

Poor tech support

Michael J. Clark, Amazon
30 January 2014
  • Summary: First of all I like acer products, I have 2 other computers that I believe work very well. I also like tablets, I have 2 android tablets, and even a touchpad, all work fine. This does not work well at all. The tablet freezes continually, and the touch response is so poor, I have had cheap phones that work better.. Then I found that the bluetooth audio did not work. I called Acer tech support, he sent me a link to update the bluetooth which I did.

Broken WiFi; Realy poor service

St Joe Mo, Amazon
6 September 2013
  • Summary: The WiFi on this never worked from Day 1. Do a quick Google search and you will see that there are literally thousands of posts about this known issue. They kept saying it was drivers.... well 8 months later I finally sent it in for service thinking the problem must be related to a loose antenna connection, etc. The notes to the tech clearly stated that it was not a driver issue. Two weeks later I get the machine back -- and the tech updated the drivers.

Dead on Arrival

Californian "joe", Amazon
9 August 2013
  • Summary: Tablet works fine as long as it is plugged in to the wall. After charging overnight, still would not work. Call to ACER yields, "Sorry, you have a bad battery. That happens sometimes." They suggested I ship it to them to be repaired. How about testing things before you ship them ?
