I recently got the HC 3.1 upgrade and the tablet has performed even better. I will admit I had some issues with force closing of certain apps in HC 3.0 but it is not the hardware. Honeycomb still needs to mature and if you are an early adopter then you have to live with it and experience its other benefits like USB host capability. Can Apple iOS do that??? I have been able to add many apps to the tablets and more apps are becoming available. We have Netflix on the tablets but at this point only allows instant queue management. Netflix is in process of delivering "play" capability.
The Iconia works great with USB wireless mouse and keyboards, detects all flash drives or drives (formatted as FAT or FAT32 - limitation of Honeycomb). Connected them to our Samsung LED HDTV and worked like a charm.Read more ›
It also has a great bonus in that even though it is a WiFi only model, it actually has a built in GPS, which can be used with Google Maps, and an add on voice navigator.
It has a standard USB port which allows for plugging in extras, such as an external memory stick, which I found for allows the playing of video files directly from said memory stick! A microSD memory slot for additional storage, a HDMI port for video/audio output to an HDTV, and an additional micro USB port for connecting to a computer.
Bluetooth allows for using extras such as a bluetooth keyboard and printing to a bluetooth enabled printer.
The display is crisp and sharp and in HD and it has front and rear facing cameras that take crisp and sharp images and video.
Overall, I am really happy with my purchase and do recommend that if anyone is in the market for a 10 inch tablet, they should take a look at this one.
If you're overly picky and unwilling to put up with imperfection this isn't the tablet for you. If you're more laid back about tech and more interested in flexibility than smoothness of use it may be just the thing. I love the way I can drag and drop files from my computer and put them right where I want them right out of the box. No need for syncing software although there's that, too, for those who want it. The Win 7 version might be a good compromise and it gives you a physical keyboard for more extensive typing.
But I'm loving the ability to sit around the house and check email or facebook, read books, play games, surf the web, watch videos or what have you without dragging around a laptop. It's also great for .pdf knitting patterns and taking into the kitchen with recipes! My kids love it, too. My 4 yr old calls it the robot tablet :-)
The image appeared fine at first, but the next day the display was blurry with pixels and lines flickering. The unit immediately downloaded updates after doing initial setup - I'm thinking this could have caused the video problem. However, even after doing a factory reset (per Acer support) it didn't resolve the issue. It appeared all was fine after the reset, but that didn't last long. I thought that the updates would download again after doing the factory reset, but it says no updates available...and the Android version shows it's at 3.2, so apparently the updates are still loaded.
I now have to ship it in for repair. Not happy about having to do that - I could have saved money and originally bought refurbished...if that's what I had wanted. Now, I've bought new and will end up with a refurbished unit.
Although I am very disappointed at this moment, I beleive I'll like the Tablet when/if it comes back and has no other problems....
Decided to cancel the repair order and get a replacement from Amazon instead. This will be my first experience in returning something to Amazon. Just couldn't see having to send something in for repair with a problem that developed within 24 hrs. I'll get the replacement in a few days - faster than the turn-around time for repair. Here's hoping the new one works without any problems!
I'll update the rating based on my experience with the replacement.
Replacement from Amazon arrived quickly. All looked good.Read more ›
