My first tablet after much research

Comments about Acer Iconia Tab Tablet:

I wasn't ready to do the iPad due to the cost. After searching around based on reviews and prices, I thought this was a good choice. So far, I am very pleased and the tablet meets my needs.

Weight
I wish it was a little lighter, but it compares to other tablets in regards to weight. I tend to use it at home though. I take it out of the house when I need t for when I am at meetings by using the keyboard case I bought for it. That works great!

App Availability
I have tons of apps, and I have had been exploring with downloading some TV series. It's nice to be able to just click and download something to watch. I am not a huge movie or TV fan, so it's nice to be able to pick what I am interesting in and watch it when I feel like it. I think the screen clarity for movies/ TV could be better but is sufficient for me. The screen is otherwise fine for the other apps and games.

Design
Sleek, shiny, attractive. A little heavy but not really a problem. The screen is pretty and has been resistant to scratches.

Durability
It seems fine, and I am comfortable sharing it with my ten year old. It seems study and well made. I have not had any issues with scratches, cracking, or other hardware issues. It still looks brand new to me.

Great Tablet!

By 

from Johnstown, NY

Comments about Acer Iconia Tab Tablet:

I've had this tablet for awhile now and it has been great!
My children have also used the tablet and it has been very easy for them and held up wonderfully. While it is a bit heavier than a more portable Iphone, I haven't had any problems toting it along with me and I appreciate the larger screen and having my books and many features available at my fingertips.
The camera also works well and has taken several nice pictures for me. I appreciate the long-lived battery as I am often forgetful to charging it.
I have found it very useful for quick look-ups on the Internet when I don't want to make the big deal of turning my laptop/computer on. I can quickly check the weather or my email.

Acer Iconia Tablet

By 

from Lake Dallas, TX

Comments about Acer Iconia Tab Tablet:

My husband bought me this tablet for my birthday to replace the Apple Ipad First generation. It is not a propriety program. It is compatible with other programs. For the price and the compatibility this tablet is the best way to go. There are many free programs or apps and is more flexible. I can create my own programs for the tablet.

Great Tablet

By 

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Acer Iconia Tab Tablet:

It's not the newest tablet out there, but it gets the job done with no hassle. It even has a usb port, super useful for making transfers of photos, videos, etc. I like the layout and the app drawer, similar to the ipad in that sense. Good size for playing games and watching movies. The one thing I don't like is hulu doesn't play on it.

Battery Life
I honestly haven't noticed, as I don't use it outside the house much.

Processing Speed
I've never had an issue with processing speed/streaming/tasks.

Weight
Not the lightest but it wont break your wrists.

App Availability
No contest, android has great apps.

Design
One thing I would say is I've never figured out where the microphone is. I took a ridiculous video saying nonsense while turning the tablet every which way, it all sounded the same. In a way I suppose that's a testiment to the microphone.

Durability
I haven't dropped it or anything, but i'm pretty sure my dog has walked all over it, no issues.

Great tablet and great price

By 

from Elizabeth, NJ

Comments about Acer Iconia Tab Tablet:

I bought this tablet because it was the cheapest one out there. I was a little worried since the price was so low but I was pleasantly surprised. It works great, picks up wifi easily and the battery lasts a very long time. It is light enough for me to carry around easily and it fits nicely in the pocket of my lab coat.

Durability
I dropped the tablet and the screen cracked a little in the corner. It still works fine but there is a crack in the screen.

I wouldn't trade it for any other kind.

By 

from Griffin, GA

Comments about Acer Iconia Tab Tablet:

I have had my tablet for over a year now and it is still going strong with no problems at all. I knew I didn't want an Ipad because I wanted to be able to use droid apps. I compared samsung, asus, and a few other brands. Acer gave me more of what I wanted for a lower price. I have the 16GB that has a micro SD card slot and USB slot. I have taken it on business trips and vacations. As far as an e-reader it works great. I like the size even though it can get a little heavy after holding for a long period of time. I bought a cover that has a stand so works out. I love my tablet and am glad I picked Acer!

Battery Life
The battery life is good for normal activities. If you download some apps that won't let the system shut down automatically when not in use then that can drain the battery quickly.

Processing Speed
Not much on wait time for things to run. I like the speed.

App Availability
It runs on driod apps which I love. I can find almost anything. I can read books through my barnes and noble app.

Design
Easy to get to things you want.

By 

from Anaheim, CA

Comments about Acer Iconia Tab Tablet:

When you don't need all your programs from the laptop or desktop this is perfect.

I haven't dropped it yet at least not on purpose and I do have a leather hard case cover for it so I don't imagine it would be easy to damage
