    Best Android tablet for your money--hands down.

    Posted .

    This tablet has been an absolute pleasure to use. Snappy interface, easy to navigate, and trumps the I pad in virtually everything but the app market. If you use an android phone and have a google account, all of you contacts, email, calendar items, and even apps can be syncronized between your android devices for free. I believe Apple charges $100 a year for this service through Mobile Me. Great build quality and very aestetically pleasing. Functional MicroSD slot, full size USB port for flash drives means you'll never be locked into a finite amount of storage. Micro HDMI out works beautifully and without the need for special adapters. Only one reason to go with the pricier, more plastic-y Motorola Xoom: Acer's bootloader is currently locked, preventing you from installing custom ROMs and recovering the software if the unit won't boot. If you plan on experimenting with different OS'es, go with the Xoom. In the meantime, I've got my fingers crossed over Acer unlocking their bootloader. All-in-all, you will absolutely love this thing. Not much to hate. Now if Best Buy can just get some accessories for it, I'll be all set.

    great product, buy without reservations!

    Posted .

    I have been waiting and reading up on tablets for months. I was thinking to buy the Iconia A500, but after reading about the Asus see transformer, decided to wait for that product thinking that it be the best quality and value. I ordered the Asus after it finally became available and got it this week. I spent one night with it and was really disappointed. If you are looking for the Asus because of the keyboard-dock functionality then perhaps it makes a little sense. I found it to be cheap and flimsy feeling and actually had a audable creak along a side seam. The sound was terrible and it was uncomfortable to hold. I returned it the next day. I then purchased the a500 and let me tell you I could not be happier. The quality feel of the tablet is so superior. This is an awsome device. The screen also has gorilla glass in case you didn't know! The sound from the speakers is vastly superior to the Asus eee. The only concern I had in buying the a500 was all the talk about weak wifi performance. I can say the wifi works strong and clear both at home and at the office. BUY IT!

    Bright Screen,9Hrs Battery Life and Love the PRICE

    Posted .

    I recently switch from iPhone to Android world... and I have to say it has been a pleasant experience. I love the options of different devices and the interface of Android has been fast, easy and meets my needs; That said, I was skeptical about Android Tablets given limited applications on the marketplace, however there is NO doubt in mind that it will evolve very very fast just like the smartphones did; Not to mention Android tablets BEATS HANDS DOWN iPad 2 on features ( except weight :) which I don't care as much... Motorola is just too expensive and not mention it has sharp edges.. which makes it hard to hold for long period of time.. Keep this in mind as Acer is actually pretty easy and comfortable to hold. I also looked as Asus.. which just feels CHEAP with the plastics.... and all the ports are on the DOCK.. which I don't intent to carry. That's why I have my notebook ( HP 14.1' DV Series) Dock is too expensive and a way to pay us more! Make sure to get a tablet with built-in ports.. trust me it will a long way; I been reading all the reviews from publishers in Iconia and decided to purchase on Monday... I have to say, I see myself holding on to the tablets throughout the evening.. ( maybe honeymoon period) but, it is definitely more natural to update my facebook or send a quick mail while I am watching basketball ... great thing about this tablet is not ONLY the stylish design ( very nice metallic look and feel) but, also the bright screen and great battery life; I been on and off YOUTUBE, Facebook, playing Lets Golf etc, and it has been great to get 8~9 hrs of battery life; Acer did a good job in making sure a FULL SIZE USB PORT ( bad for Apple), and SD card for expansion. Also, they have some nice applications like Social Jogger which helps my keep update my social networking accounts. I do want to buy a case, but Best Buy said they will get more Acer cases in few weeks. OVerall, very happy with Acer and love the features of HoneyComb. GO ANDROID!

    EXCELLENT ANDROID TABLET!

    Posted .

    Did a lot of research before buying this tablet, and found this tablet to have the most features for the money, without compromising quality. I even got a $50 Best Buy gift card with my purchase! This tablet feels very solid and sturdy in your hands. It recently updated to Honeycomb 3.2, and although a lot of people say there are no benefits for larger screen tablets, I find it more stable and faster when transitioning between applications with this update. I have not experience hangs or lock ups like some other reviewers say, but then again, Android OSs are a work in progress. The sound is amazing when compared to other tablets. Screen resolution and display are excellent. But even though the Aconia has better resolution than my IPad 2, the Ipad still looks better. The Acer is way faster on Wifi than the iPad2, though, and best of all, it plays flash. It also recently updated to Flash 11. I have not encountered a website with flash that I can not access or play media from. the full size usb is a definite plus and other more expensive tablet don't offer it. I will be adding 32gb of memory soon, so I can carry all my movies with me. If you are looking for a tablet to lay around the house or take on the go and look at your email, surf the internet, play media and games, read books, etc.. this is definitely the way to go.

    Awesome

    Posted .

    It really was a toss up between this and the new Eee Pad Transformer for me. They didn't have the other one in stock so that made it an easy choice. I am thoroughly satisfied. I can't wait to root it! XDA already has forums for this device so if your like me and like to customize it completely you'll be happy to know. Pros: -Android 3.0 Honeycomb -$150 less than the Motorola Xoom -Lighter than the Xoom -Nice screen -Did I mention Android 3.0? -Fully customizable, unlike iPad -Google Docs and Navigation for free -Can already root the device for Superuser permissions -HDMI -You can use your rooted Android phone to tether your 3G/4G connection to it wirelessly and use this to charge the phone -Adobe Flash -Awesome Graphics Cons: -SCREEN GLARE GALORE!! -No others at the moment. Overall this device is extremely good for the money. It is the same thing as the Motorola Xoom just without the hefty price tag. $50 less than the lowest priced iPad. You will not be disappointed in this.

    Seems like a great tablet!

    Posted .

    there Are lot's of reviews already out there, so I doN't want to repeat them. pros I like: - gooD scReen: it dOes have an auto brIghtness feature which can aDjusTscreen brightness bAsed on amBient Light - fast and rEsponsive uniT - decent hd video - you can Shoot time lapse movies (woo-hoo) - gps (little problematic but hopefully there will be a fix) - usb port (anD it actually dOes work!); once plugged in, The uNit automatically rEcognizes picTures and movies. If you want to copy files to/from the usb drive you need to download a file manager app. - hdmi port (although I don't have any plans using it) - apps that are optimized for honeycomb look really good - sound is pretty decent via the speakers, but it is much better using headphones. cons I don't like: - short power cord. you will need an extension cord if you want to charge it and using at the same time while you are sitting at a desk, or laying in bed. - volume button at top is very hard to press - this is not device related, but there are only about 155 programs out there which are optimized for android/honeycomb tablets. you can actually search and find the list (i'm not supposed to post links here). however, the list of apps will probably skyrocket soon since there are more and more hd tablets are coming.

    Great Tablet

    Posted .

    I was torn between this, the Transformer, and the Ipad2. Well this is the only one I could actually find. But the fact that it has a micro SD slot, a USB port, and HDMI out right on the tablet along with built in GPS were the main attractions for me. This is my first tablet. I wasn't sure how much I would actually use it. I have had it for a little more than 24 hours at this point and I am having a hard time putting it down. I keep hearing that Android doesn't have many apps. Well maybe they don't compared to the iPad, but there are plenty and many of them are free. So far I have installed the Kindle app (free), Google maps (free), Google Earth (free), The Weather Channel app (free), a free drag racing game that is highly addictive... and there are plenty more. I can't really think of anything yet that I can't do with this tablet and the apps that are available for it. This tablet is fast and runs very well. The only issue I have had so far is that I have had a few app crashes; the browser a few times and the market multiple times. Obviously Honeycomb still needs a little work, but that isn't to say that it's bad. It's actually quite good already. I am also pretty impressed with the display. It isn't nearly as bad as a few reviews would lead you to believe. The only potential issue I have with it is that the viewing angle could be a little better. But at this price range and considering the other features on this tablet I don't have an issue with it.

    Great value and performance

    Posted .

    It's not a laptop ... if you look at it as a laptop, you'll be disappointed. On the other hand if you look at as a portable media player/reader, I think you'll be happy. Anyone who thinks they can replace a real computer with a tablet, doesn't do much with their computer! The Iconia stands out from the other Android tablets by it's connectability: full size USB, HDMI, Micro SDHC, Blue Tooth, etc. I was able to hook up one of my 500 GB external drives and it worked just fine - as soon as I realized that external storage really needs to be hooked up when you power up the tablet. There are four built-in folders that come with it and I wish you could add more. They are helpful for organization because you can drop apps and widgets into them and they behave like folders. I HATE the screen full of icons interface that most Windows users like, so this was a plus for me. Down side - you have to clear the screen and start over if you want to add something - otherwise the new icons step all over each other and cannot be moved. Performance is crisp. Screens write in a blink and you never seem to be waiting for anything. The WiFi "N" performance is excellent. Email and web sites load quickly, even large attachments take almost no time. The difference between this and my Motorola Droid on WiFi is huge. If there is a downside for me, it was that I could not find any movies that would download for viewing off line, and Netflix does not yet have an app. Streaming movies ran just fine from Blockbuster and Amazon, but that did me no good on an airplane or the cruise ship during a recent vacation. Also, file management connection with my iMac (Lion) is marginal, even with the Android app that runs on the desktop that's supposed to take care of that. iSyncr WiFi (Apple Version) works great with iTunes (music only) and you can use Cloud Print (Google Chrome) to print most documents most of the time. Astro works great for file management (how can you have an OS w/o a file manager built in?). There are a lot of apps available, but many are written for phones and don't really work well. If you buy one, try it immediately so you can dump it if you're not satisfied.

    GREAT TABLET!!!

    Posted .

    THIS TABLET IS AWESOME. But there are things you should know before you buy any android tablet. First this is a great release of the New android Honeycomb Tablet operating system. Its not going to be prefect right out of the box, so If you cant handle that this still has a few bugs dont buy it. I have been using it for about a month. It runs very smooth and is very fast, you get a few forced closes once in a while but its not really a big deal. The graphics are great and the fact that you can completely customize it to the way you want it is even better. HD VIDEO: It still is very choppy to play HD videos that are downloaded on it, If your getting HD video from youtube it runs great. FLASH FLASH FLASH: The flash support is excellent, runs really nice and smooth. APPS: The android market is still lacking NEW tablet apps, there are more available than before and are growing steadily, I say in 3 more months the amount of apps for this thing will be incredible. IN THE END: If you are looking for something that very soon will be an IPAD killer, runs really great, still has minor bugs, but is very fun too use buy this product. If you want something that is already established, has almost no bugs, has tons of tablet apps available, buy and Ipad

    Awesome first-gen Honeycomb device!

    Posted .

    Like a couple other reviewers, I started out dead set on the Asus Transformer, but after no luck in locating one, and no real need for the keyboard dock, I decided a $50 premium for the Acer product was worth it to me. I definitely love my decision. After using an iPad for about a year, I was sick of the flashless websites and the giant iPhone feel. Honeycomb is light years ahead of iOS on so many levels. It is incredibly smooth and delivers a fantastic user experience. The availability of home screen widgets is something I've fallen in love with. The tablet itself has a fantastic display and decent camera quality. Its edges are smooth and very comfortable to hold (unlike the sharp-edged iPad). The touch screen in wonderfully responsive and battery life has proven satisfactory. The stereo speaker quality is as good as I'd ever ask for or expect on a tablet. They are plenty loud, but not real bass heavy. Mix in the full usb and HDMI out, and you've got a multimedia monster. All the cons I see are with Android itself. There's not a lot of dedicated apps, and sometimes the web browser has some quirks, but usually only on flash-heavy sites. On a side note, weight on this thing isn't as bad as it appears on paper. For whatever reason, it may weigh more than an iPad or XOOM on paper, but in use, it's better balanced (at least that's the only way I can explain it), and not noticeable by any means.

    Iconia is the Best of the Android tablets. Period.

    Posted .

    First I want to let you people know that this isn't my first tablet or android device. I owned many and I mean many tablets. eLocity A7, Galaxy Tab, Dell Streak 5 (can't really call it a tablet), Dell Streak 7, Huawei tablet. None of them gave me what I was really looking for. Huawei and eLocity being to me the worst and the Dell Streak 7 being the worst in Battery life. I also have an iPhone 3Gs so I have experience with iOS as well. Acer Iconia Tablet so far superiour to any of the devices I've used so far. Android market is great as normal and it feels so nice in the hand with the Aluminum on the back...it actually feels like you get what you paid for. one thing not to many people in the Reviews say is that the Sound on this thing is very good for that it is; I really enjoy the speakers they put into it. The Tablet is a bit heavy but I really don't notice it too much, only when I lay on the sofa and kick my feet up to read Comics/Mangas but I didn't buy this just for Books. and nor should you IMO if you want a eReader just get a Nook. Its super fast!! I will not lie it is very responsive. one thing I hated about the eLocity A7 is that when you Hook it up though HDMI the processor SLOWS way down as if it can't handle Mirroring. Not this thing its simply amazing HDMI works just as you would want it to work. no slow down at all for me when I play old school Emulation games or any other game. NVidia Tegra 2 can handle it trust me. I was debating at first to get the Iconia or Transformer. besides this not having some peripherals you might want (keyboard dock) this thing is still very good. The price point is way better then Xoom but $50 more then the transformer. both are good tablets it just all depends if you think you need a Keyboard/Extra battery life (at the cost of $150 more for the Dock) get the Transformer but if your just looking for an all around good tablet that's solid get the Iconia. Oh and by all means the Iconia has good Battery life 8-9 hours, I just wanted to clear that up. At this point in time, The ASUS Transformer is also sold out on Best buy not sure why but I will be getting that as well to really compare it to, So far ACER Iconia is a great machine buy one and you will enjoy it.

    Best iPad2 Alternative!

    Posted .

    I wanted to upgrade from my iPad1 - looked at the iPad2 so many times at Best Buy but it is the same old iOS and no expansion. Then came the Acer Iconia Tab - It has everything I wanted on a tablet Micro SD slot (works right out of the box!) mini usb (works great!) and a standard USB (works great!) HDMI to tv (have not tried that yet) The Honeycomb OS is a pleasant change from the iOS and with LIVE wallpaper screens and widgets makes your user experience your own. Do not get me wrong, iPad2 is awesome! However, it does now allow the configuration that the Honeycomb OS does nor does it have the expand ability that the Iconia has. I have had my Iconia for one week now and I just love it. The only CON I have for this tablet is not the tablet at all. The power cord is far too short and requires me to move my power strips higher on a wall then expected. Not sure why they did not go with the standard USB power blocks. I yearn for accessories like cases and car adapters. I highly recommend this tablet!

    Finally ...... a real tablet

    Posted .

    Like others i was waiting for the Asus Transformer but got sold out before most of the world woke up. Glad it happened. I have had several e-reader/tablets but nothing like this. I knew from reading the specs when Google launched Honeycomb it would be killer. Graphics is very smooth thanks to nvidia chip (no flaming now even though I am an AMD fan), dual core cpu and 1GB of memory is perfect. All others I have used were 256MB and some 512MB but started running out of memory. The screen is bright and easy to see from all angles unlike a lot of others. The weight is not as bad as others make it out to be - you going to rest it on a desk, your lap or case that doubles as a stand. it has a solid feel to it. More and more apps are being released and those already on the Market meet my needs. Now that I have found the perfect tablet and OS I will start buying apps for it. Battery life is pretty good - I get about 8 hours so far. Unfortunately there are somethings that Acer could have improved on like the ridiculously short power cable and the fact that you cannot charge it with USB connection. Where are the accessories too? I see a port for docking station but nothing is really mentioned about it nor can you find any covers specifically for the Iconia. Acer needs to also release the source code some devs like me can starting making ROMS - they are required to under GPL.. I was on the fence with getting this or holding out for more tablets to arrive, but glad I got it.

    This Tablet Rocks!!

    Posted .

    Before I bought this tablet I read tons of reviews for different tablets out there and settled on the Acer A500. I can say it was the right choice. The A500 has everything you will need in a tablet. HDMI port, FULL SIZED USB PORT!!, Micro Usb port and Micro SD Card slot. All these extras do make it a bit heavier then other tablets, but it is worth the little extra heft to it to be able to slap a flash drive or external hard drive on it... or keyboard.. or ps3 controller. Its fast and responsive, and the price point cant be beat. For those of you that are scared away a bit by the fact it is made by Acer and not some other big name, dont be. It is quality all the way around. They have also just dropped the Honeycomb 3.1 update on it so its running the most up to date OS as well. I've been using it for a few weeks now and you cant pry it out of my hot little fists. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a tablet.

    Very impressive Tablet

    Posted .

    I went into BB to buy the ASUS Transformer but with the delay in shipping I was left other options. I reviewed the A500 and decided to take the plunge. This being my first tablet as an owner I did not know what to expect. I got a lot more than I expected. I have to say I love this thing! It is fast and feels good in my hand. It feels solid not like other tabs I have used (not owned) I am not disappointed with my decision to pick this up. Fast touch response time I have not run into any calibration issues. A few force closes and lock ups but nothing compared to my EVO or Hero. The cons: Well first and foremost I am disappointed with the lack of accessories available for it. While it is sturdy I don't like it exposed to the elements of everyday use. 2nd is that after about 4 days of use I noticed when I was reading an ebook via the Nook app that the pages started to refresh themselves, that Angry Birds (yes I play Angry Birds) would pause for no reason, and that while in sleep mode the tablet would all of a sudden come out of sleep mode and the screen would dim itself and then brighten (I assumed it was the auto lighting was messed up). I performed a hard reset and and it has appeared to fix the issue. I have not read of any other issues like this so it may be unique ... if it starts it again I will trade it in for another. I was going to get the Flyer but the lack of Stylus made that decision for me. I am happy with this Tablet and my livescribe pen Over all I am very satisfied with this product

    A great choice for entertainment or business

    Posted .

    I did a ton of research before pulling the trigger on a tablet and could not be happier about my selection that I made more than a month ago. The set up of the device was really easy as the screen prompts tell you exactly what to do and when to do it. The real reason that I chose this is because of the media flexibility: microSD, USB 2.0 and hdmi output. Using the full version of documents to go I am able to edit documents on the fly and while I am still in front of my customer, I can update the quote in word and email it to them from the Iconia (I have hotspot service for my Thurderbolt). Web access even using 4G is good. After I leave a customer location I have to update my CRM website and now I can do it from the parking lot. The Iconia is also fun to play on with access to the market the possibilities are endless. I have bought tech products for 15 years and have never written a review but I am so excited about this device that I just want to let everyone how great it is.

    Great for the price

    Posted .

    I was pretty hesitant to buy Acer because they don't make great computers. However, the guys at Best Buy ensured me that this tablet was great for the money. After using it at the store for a while, I was sold. The main thing that got me was the USB port. As a student, I live and die by my zip drive and it's incredibly convenient. I have all my power points on my thumb drive and can open them with the tablet (if you want to view word, excel or PowerPoint documents, you have to get an app but it's free. I believe a different app let's you edit them). Another awesome feature is the microSD memory card slot which almost no other tablet on the market can offer (especially with a USB port). I bought this for school and couldn't be happier. My brother owns an I pad and I honestly cannot believe that for the same price, I got my Acer Iconia AND the two year protection plan with Geek squad AND a $100 Best Buy gift card because it was a special offer for the tablet. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a tablet for anything, especially school. I am beyond impressed with the product and have converted a few people to consider the acer Iconia or at least a tablet with a USB...you never know when you might need to look at a document you have saved on a thumbdrive.

    This thing is awesome

    Posted .

    I had gone into BestBuy this past weekend intending to pick up a 10" netbook when I saw this sitting there for just a little more money than the netbook. I had looked at the IPad's previously and decided against them because of the lack of Flash compatibility and USB drives. This guy here had both, was $50 less than the IPad and I love the Acer Name so I decided to give her a try. I have to say I am not disapointed. It is slightly heavier than the IPad but who exactly intends to stand there holding the thing out in front of you for hours at a time. It has a lot of speed and the touch screen is very sensative (almost to sensative). Although it only plays MP4's currently, it does play them flawlessly with awesome graphics. The sound is good and loud too which eliminated the need for external speakers unless I'm in a noisy invironment in which case it does have a headphone port. It does take a bit using it to remember where all of the apps are located at as there are a lot of screens that can be accessed but if you want everything in one central location you can do that as well very easily. It offers 3 different ways to transfer your files on and off of it which is just wonderful. I took it into a couple of meetings with me the other day and it was awesome tohave all of my information at my fingertips. And the battery lasts a good long time with normal use. I would recomend this to anyone!!!

    Amazing

    Posted .

    I can't believe a tablet with all these features are on the market. The OS Honeycomb 3.0 is great. Does it get fingerprints? Yep! But what tablet doesn't? The case is a dust magnet, big deal. This thing works. I have a Mac book Pro, Apple TV, Droid X, and several PCs. If you have an android based phone, then you need this tablet immediately. If you have all Apply products, there is a way to sync your itunes with Honeycomb OS, but who knows how long that will be available before Apple updates I-tunes to prevent this capability. What sold me on this tablet was the expandable memory slot, two USB ports, two cameras, and price. No need to buy another tablet with larger memory just buy a bigger memory stick. And if you max out the memory stick, YOU CAN HOOK UP AN EXTERNAL. Good luck trying that with an Ipad.
