Summary: I bought this for my wife to run her Windows office apps for work and do some media streaming on the side. If you absolutely need to run Windows applications on a tablet this will do, but definitely invest in a stylus and some higher quality bluetooth speakers or headphones.
Pros: Runs Windows applications including flash-enabled browsers, quick booting SSD, good screen size & HD, decent battery life, USB 3.0 port (singular)
Cons: One of the heaviest tablets on the market, multiple bugs & dropoffs streaming video (using both Windows8.1 apps and multiple browsers with multiple streaming services), cheap onboard speakers have some of the worst audio quality of any tablet (extremely weak & tinny), poor touch response with fin...

Summary: I wanted to love this tablet so much. I had the Lenovo twist and sold it and decided to try this out. Straight out the box I was very happy with my purchase. I have not had it for a week now and I am going to sell it. It is impossible for me to do continuous work because it constantly freezes.
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.

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.
