    Works great! Fast response

    Posted .

    The tablet was actually a gift for my wife. It has a beautiful screen, works with a number of thumb drives (haven't had one fail yet), is easy to navigate, fast response, and has beautiful graphics. Good points: No memory issues (at least not yet) Very responsive multi-touch controls Adapts well to changing orientation Fast Excellent sound quality, with good volume Bad points: Battery life not quite what I had hoped, but is fair Sometimes a little too responsive when trying to configure the desktop (Probably an Android issue, not the tablet) Automatic updates should be more configurable Should include a file browser (I had to download from the Android Market).

    better then ipad2

    Posted .

    I have had this for about a week now and all I can say is wow i'm glad I took back my ipad2 and got this. Now don't get me wrong the ipad was nice but I have really never been an apple person and to find something that is't an apple and can do everything I want it to for less I was sold. The only thing that I would love to find to make this tablet even better would be a case but haven't found 1yet. So if your looking for a tablet I would really check this out first and if you don't like just get the ipad. Oh yeah and 1 last thing the Iconia does not do netflix as of right now and top Res is only 720p but there is going to be an update in june 2011 for the support of 1080i.

    Superlative

    Posted .

    This is by far the best tablet out there in my opinion. I've had the Ipad 2, and while it was a smooth experience it was very limited in its functionality. This thing does it all flash drives, thumb drives, external hard drives, flash, hd video, the list goes on and on. Ive rooted it, flashed a custom rom, and not to mention that its overclocked and running at 1.6 ghz. This thing absolutely screams. It has replaced both my desktop and laptop as my go to device. All pros no cons.

    Better Than Transformer

    Posted .

    It surprises me that Acer has made the best Android tablet to date. The full size USB port and its build quality of aluminum metallic makes it a better choice than the Transformer. The Asus does not have a full size USB port and is made of cheap plastic instead of the aluminum metallic like the Acer is. This is why the Acer is heavier.

    Incredible tablet

    Posted .

    Pros: portability, price, cameras, Android Cons: weight, charge cord length, no USB charging Originally went out to take advantage of Verizon's fire sale on Ipad1's, when I found that my local branch was out of stock I went to Best Buy to see if they had any. When I saw this I just had to look. This pad is incredible. Great resolution, screen is very nice and bright, touch screen very responsive. I love the fact that the cameras are way better than iPad2 (5mp back/ 2mp front) Biggest downsides are the very short AC charge cord (only 3 feet), the lack of ability to charge the battery while connected through USB and the weight (1.7 lbs). So glad Verizon was out of stock. :-)

    Perfect

    Posted .

    Love this tablet, one thing to think about when purchasing all these android tablets coming out, most of them are tegra 2 so performance wise its going to the same mostly. That aside the build quialty is great nice solid feel in the hand perfect bezel size is just right, so while holding it thumb does not interfere with the touch screen Full sizes USB port on the tablet is nice for files and charging your phone too. Acer has been good with updates(not as fast as some enthusiasts would tell you) Dolby speakers is a big plus makes the sounds loud enough to hear and not have that over amplified sound( I.e distortion and cutoff) Holds up to a 32 sd card which can be found else where for a good price All in all great tablet

    Good

    Posted .

    This is a neat tablet that combines price and features very well. The battery lasts long, screen looks great, cameras are high quality, and most importantly it comes with a MicroSD slot to expand the memory cheaply and easily. Surfing the web, checking email, and watching videos is easy and seamless for the most part. But this tablet suffers from being very large and heavy. Tablets are meant to be more portable than tablets, and here the Iconia Tablet struggles. Also a lot of apps downloaded from the android market do not work and crash sometimes. The Acer Iconia A500 is a great balance of features, value, and price. Despite being a little bulky it is definitely worth it and is one of the most underrated tablets on the market.

    Nice Tablet!

    Posted .

    I've owned several IPad's including the IPad 2. No doubt they are awesome and easy to use. I decided to save a little money and read the reviews on the A500. BB had them on sale for $349.99 so I took the plunge. Nice tablet! Quick response with the right app playes any movie format I throw at it. I belive this is a Ipad competitor. With the android market growing everyday you have plenty of choices. I would not hesitate to pick one of these up!!!!!

    Tons of fun, Easy Setup, Does Everything!!!

    Posted .

    I purchased this tablet a few days ago. As soon as I turned it on it asked me to connect to Wi-Fi and then did a system update. I integrated my existing Google account that is shared with my Droid X2. Everything moved over perfectly. I was able to link up my corporate email with no problems. The screen is big and bright. The touch responsiveness seems a little slow at times compared to my Droid phone but maybe I’m just not used to it. Not a big issue at all. Web browsing is awesome. Looks just like Chrome on my computer. The honeycomb OS is pretty slick. It literally took me like 10 minutes to figure it out compared to gingerbread on my phone. The look and feel of the tablet is awesome. It is a bit heavy but it feels sturdy and well made. The microphone is terrible. I have taken video holding the tablet narrating and I can barely hear myself on play back. One final thing, I plugged my Logitech keyboard and mouse combo receiver and both worked within seconds. I attached it to my big screen TV using an HDMI cable and was web surfing from my couch via my wireless keyboard and mouse. Very cool!!

    Excellent Tablet

    Posted .

    This tablet delivers as advertised and for a great price. Have had it for 3 months now; battery life is great, it's lightening fast, does everything I've wanted to do from gaming to accessing web sites & email accounts to home-office tasks. The apps it comes with will get you started and there are plenty to download to meet whatever your needs/desires are. Wouldn't trade it for 3 iPads ... this is much, much more versitile ....

    Great Tablet, Love the USB, Storage, Flash & PRICE

    Posted .

    I own the Glaxy ( samsung) seven tablet and what a difference! I have to say HoneyComb is awesome! I love it already ( just got it this evening) Acer did the right thing to price it below ipad! Love the metalic look... and all the ports! I have Acer's AspireONE and it has been a great buy as well... they did a good job in packing all the great features and pricing it below ipad; I happen to see the Asus Transformer and it looks cheap and the whole keyboard thing is awkward ..... not to mention all the ports is on the keyboard and NOT on the tablet; I hope Acer comes up with the 4G option soon! I can hand this one to my wife! Get one you will LOVE IT. BTW, Best Buy said they will have the Acer case soon, don't forget to get a case.. or you might damage the screen!

    Excellent tablet regardless of price

    Posted .

    I bought this tablet after owning and trading in 3 other tablets. I never kept any of the other 3 for more than a week before their limitations frustrated me. I have to say this tablet is the best I have used, hands down. It is responsive, has plenty of storage, the keyboard is outstanding, and the whole unit feels rock solid. Although Acer is known for distributing sub-par laptops, this tablet is worth far more than what you are paying. I would and will reccomend this tablet to all of my friends and clients!

    Guess who's back, back again

    Posted .

    Acer's back, tell a friend Guess who's back, guess who's back, guess who's back, guess who's back, guess who's back, guess who's back, guess who's back... This is by far the best tablet on the market. I work in IT and I get to test all kinds of tablets, and this is the best one yet. For the price you can’t beat the hardware and the Android Honeycomb OS is excellent with the apps building up every day. The advantages to getting an iPad 2, which is a thinner and lighter device, are nullified by the superior hardware and OS of the Acer Iconia A500. Pros: Better price, better hardware, better OS (Android Honeycomb). Cons: Heavier than the iPad 2, but you get the iPad OS which is nothing more than a giant iPhone. Thicker than the iPad 2, and again with a poor OS and poor hardware specs.

    pleasantly suprised

    Posted .

    It's a very well built tablet. For the most part it's easy to setup, dl applications, and setup wifi and email. The screen is nice and bright and very clear. As far as tablet goes, this is as good as any. One of the first things I tried to do was to sync up with my work's exchange server. It comes with Android 3.0 and after banging my head trying to get it to sync with my work's exchange server, I gave up. Later that day it asked me if I wanted to upgrade to the latest version of Andriod 3.1 - once I did that it would allow me to sync up with with the exchange server. I also noticed that devices like the Motorola Xoom will have Andriod 3.3 - not sure what advantage that has. I also realized that a tablet is a very cool toy and a great way to access information. However to distribute information you really need a keyboard. Tapping out emails isn't efficient. It takes a while and there's many more misspellings. It's not a laptop replacement, the technology isn't there yet.

    great tablet, great value

    Posted .

    I did quite a bit of research prior to buying this tablet. I am a googlite and know that the market is likely to see many new android tablets in the next 6 months but could not resist the chance to get in the game. The Acer A500 fit the bill, good config, good flexibility, great value. I have had a few minor glitches and have had to reboot twice in 1 week, but am very happy with purchase. If you do not need 3g or 4g, this wifi only option is a strong contender. Only downside is battery life but I have not felt that pain too much yet.

    Acer A500 review

    Posted .

    Pros: best hardware you can really get these days (as of release), $150 cheaper than the xoom and only $50 more than the asus transformer, it's not the most affordable model available but still very competitive. It's fast, gotta love honeycomb, bluetooth usb and hdmi support all essential. usb port can handle fat32 formatted drives. Honeycomb's browser is very similar to chrome and can be sync'd with a google account. I now only use dolphin when I need a "desktop agent" Cons: doesn't charge from USB (not sure about competitors), and the available power cord is less than 3 feet long. Some existing android apps seem to have difficulty with honeycomb but this incompatibility should fade over time (Astro file manager's samba plugin for instance). Only 1 USB master port.

    Great price, great build.

    Posted .

    I have had my A500 for about a week now and it has been wonderful. I can honestly say I have not had one problem with it. I was torn between the Moto Xoom and the iPad 2, well I decided on the Xoom until I arrived at my local Best Buy store. See that's when I saw something different next to the Xoom. Everything was nearly identical on the inside, but there was the outside with it's brushed aluminum finish. Oh yea forget the rubber and plastic feel. I also love the fact that most of the widgets are navigated with your thumbs. Ok then there is the price yes $150.00 less than its lowest competitor. That alone should be the deal maker. All I can say is give it a try and you will not be disappointed.

    Great tablet:-) :-) :-)

    Posted .

    I've had it over a week and so far so good. It does almost everything that I want it to do. Only problem so far is they don't have a lot of the good apps for honeycomb yet but that shouldn't take to long. Remember honeycomb is pretty new. Battery life is good and the screen looks nice. Only one case is out that I can find which you can get at Staples. Power cord is very short. 3 feet long. Pop in a 32gig micro SD and your all set.

    Good tablet ..

    Posted .

    I have had this from the day it got released. About 3 to 4 weeks now. CONS: - Short power supply cable. Really short!!! - Volume rocker button is horizontal. For me, the "up / down" intuitive is a norm & having to go left / right is cumbersome. Plus adjusting it when in landscape mode is an inconvenience - Lack of accessories - cases, dock, etc. There is close to ZERO eco system surrounding this product. - The above inhibits the ability to extend the value prop of this product thereof. - MY BIGGEST GRIPE: WiFi. --- I keep losing my WiFi signal & hence had to set up a bunch of APs across the house from my very old wireless routers in my electronic discarded pile. (Knew I would have some use for them someday!!!) --- I have changed the settings, but no avail. - NEXT BIGGEST GRIPE: Unresponsive screen @ start up --- Several times over the past 3/4 weeks, upon hitting the power button, i get the "unlock' screen; but completely unresponsive. --- I need to 'power off" and recycle - which takes about 10 to 15 seconds to cycle and get online. --- The above, imho, is not a *true" tablet experience - since one of the key attributes is the ability to be instantly on. - GPS: It is there & works. But not the greatest. I was @ the Boeing Air Museum over the weekend, sitting outside and it took 4ever to get a GPS lock. Hence don't trust the GPS if you are walking about. - In built offline maps to cater for GPS. Sure you can DL mapdroyd - but why would it not be already installed? - Distribution of weight. It is a heavy tablet and you cannot hold it any single position for long. - Camera is so-so. Tried to take pix @ the museum (inside & outside). Blurry. PROS: - Installed apps - Clear.Fi - Installed games - Fit / finish of the product (even tho' some members claimed as if the product was slipping away from their grasp) - LOVE LOVE LOVE the USB. This was a HUGE selling point. - Price point ... again a plus CONCLUSION: I'm not sure. Even though I gave it 4 stars, I'm leaning towards 3 stars. Or 3.5. On the price, $449/.- is a good price imho; but with the deluge of android tablets, this price point is slightly high. The ASUS transformer @ $400/- or the Huawei S7 (older model) @ $250/- seem like a better deal. (FWIW, I have the older S7 & still loving it, even though it has resistive. I upgraded the OS to 2.2 and see a huge improvement.) Is this a keeper? I don't know - I will test the ASUS this weekend, with the keyboard and see the delta. Is the $50/- (tablet only) worth? Time will tell. Plus the Toshiba is also around the corner with removable battery (A SIGNIFICANT PLUS) and their proprietary display which makes images more vivid.
