The tablet isn't for someone who wants a fast tablet.

Summary: This tablet was a nightmare, it started off being EVERYTHING I wanted, it was quick it was easy and it was cheap! Except it became slow, it went from being fast to being very very slow, it's i5 processor couldn't even handle basic games and everything took forever to load and it was just not nearly as quick and snappy as it was out of the box. I will never buy another Acer product and am SO happy I got the surface pro (my original pick).

Summary: I own several tablets Surface Pro 2 Iconia W3 Iconia W700 Dell Venu 8 Ipad 3 Ipad mini This tablet (W700) was my pick over the original Surface Pro due to a better battery life. The machine is very fast and scores very high on the winmark test scale. Not as fast as my Surface Pro 2 512GB, but fast enough to play many Windows PC games.
Summary: Here are the following problems that I have to deal with on a daily basis due to windows 8. Bluetooth power options are not there. I've tried all the power settings, services.msc, wifi max performance, and the keyboard and Bluetooth mouse still disconnect after 2-3 mins of not using them. very frustrating!!! I have to power off and on the tablet which means I lose any virtual desktop I am connected to. the keyboard on its own is crappy and feels very cheap.
Summary: The Charge of the battery only lasts 4 hours. The stylus stopped operating on the third day of use. It's hard to push the small icons with the fingers. The advertised Acer Ring was not installed.
Summary: I have read the reviews from here before buying it, but you know what, I don't believe any more in this reviews, specially those long reviews here.. that just doesn't make sense, they even upgrade the reviews, obviously they are working for Acer, That being said I RETURNED the tablet (thank you Amazon for the hassle free RMA) why? well here is why: 1.
I wish I could rate the hardware and software separately...

Summary: I ordered this tablet right here from Amazon and received it a few days ago. Here are some things about it that stood out to me right away: 1. It was very nicely packaged in a sturdy box and all the components had their own cardboard compartments and fabric sleeves. Again, very nicely done. 2. Acer provided a lot of very nice extras that I didn't really expect when first looking at this tablet.
Summary: Bought one of the first released tablets. Absolutely love it except for the fact that the Wifi connectivity is terrible. Any wall between the CPU and router will cause it not to connect, and if I get it to connect, will only stay that way for 5 minutes tips at a time. Even tried updating/repairing driver.
Great for the normal features, as long as you don't need to use the built in wireless

Summary: I let the tablet other than the wireless connection. It drops out very frequently. I have the latest driver and still no luck. This seems to be a know issue based on the search for "Acer Iconia W700 Wi-Fi Problem" on the Acer forum. I would recommend a different tablet if you want more reliable wireless connection.
