4.0 out of 5 stars Acer A500, December 29, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Acer Iconia A500-10S16U Tablet,10.1IN HD Multi-Touch display-Refurbished (Personal Computers)
Purchased as a refurbished device as a Christmas present for my girlfriend. She is a Science teacher for an local ISD northwest of Houston. So far, I have zero complaints and shes loving it too. She has the Android WiFi version; Data resolution and moving video look great.

I used the Acer myself for nearly a month. I used it to "redline" system AV drawings in .pdf format which were originally in CAD or Visio. I highly recommend the Documents To Go & PDF Reader app which permits the pdf file to be saved as a new file with annotations over the original pdf data. I can then email the annotated file, or upload to Google docs for storage in the cloud. My boss saw the results and I believe I have pursuaded him to implement the Acer in our business for Project Managers, Lead Techs, Programmers and myself while in the field.

During this Christmas break my girlfriend will be exploring ways which she can implement her curriculum and lesson plan material into the classroom. She is better able to document various tasks within in a deadline to one of the administrators who isnt nearly as detailed or accountable. This "digital trail" allows her to CYA (Cover Your @ss) so the principal, and parents can better understand where the difficiencies in the education process really are.

Still need to get an extended warranty with drop protection and HDMI to VGA converter (see HP website) so she can connect to her ISD's provided analog VGA projector.

She has the highest overall grade average of Science Teachers and the true metrix will be if she can improve upon her current success.

I hope you do not have any problems or need of service. Since this is a refurb unit, I've learned the hard way that ACER will not provide any kind of support or repair services, even if you are willing to pay for them! Very disappointed and will not buy an ACER product again.
