Not half the computer the 64 GB was - Half DOA

Kenneth A. Patterson "The Haunted Studios(tm)", Amazon
22 December 2014
  • Summary: This one is a loser. I had purchased the 64 GB version of this tablet and thought it was great - I still use it every day as a desktop replacement in one of my offices. But this one was a loser out of the box. I could never get it to fully initialize, so I can't review all the features but I can tell you that I was never, ever able to get the Bluetooth to work at all.

The tablet can't access the internet and is just a useless piece of trash now

shem, Amazon
21 November 2014
  • Summary: I've reset it using the recovery disks that came with it (System DVD, Recovery disks 1 and 2). Since the recovery, the tablet hasn't been able to connect to WiFi AT ALL! Windows can't activate because it won't connect to the internet. The WiFi signal is strong and will connect to any other device I use and so the tablet is definitely the one having problems. It's excuse is that it doesn't "detect any wireless hardware".

Sad experience

Krishna Prasad, Amazon
10 October 2014
  • Summary: The touch screen has failed within 10 months of purchase. Unfortunately, it is not covered under warranty in India (I knew that it got only Travellers warranty at the time of purchase. But I had taken a risk as I wanted a 10+ inch full HD Windows 8 tablet with i3 or i5 processor which was not available in India).

Awful... Waste of money!

ichfsdich, Amazon

  • Summary: This tablet is terrible, it doesn't recognize plug ins and the touch screen is unresponsive. This is the worst tablet / computer I've ever used. Maybe this is a manufacturer defect on mine, but I hate it! I've had it about 6 months and factory reset a few time hoping for better results. I've tried every possible way I can think of tho improve usage...

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.
