I used my W500 for mostly for browsing, watching media on the go, ebook and some minor office work so I'll be making comparison on those area first.
General Win8 Metro experience:
Many apps already have update waiting when I got my unit(over 30). I'm fairly new to Win8 metro having only spent a few days with touch enabled Win8 devices in the last few months. Touch response is very good and smooth. Have not notice any slowdown even with apps downloading and install updates in the background. Rotation have a little lag compare to iPad but still pretty good.
One of problem with the W500 is that Netflix HD have very poor performance and even SD is not quite smooth at times so that was the first thing I tried. In desktop mode, after installing MS Silverlight. Things seems OK for a bit but then video starts to lag but audio kept going so they are out of sync after a few seconds. Turning off HD however produce a perfectly smooth SD playback.
I was quite dis-appointed by this but then I notice the Netflix app on the Metro interface so I decided to give that a try. Turns out there is already an update so I logged into my MS account and updated the app. It seems that removing the need to run in a browser plug-in environment is all it needs for smooth HD playback. I watch 2 episodes of BSG without any problem. Playback is perfectly smooth all the way through.
Next up, I tried some HD video from a Patriot USB 3.0 Flash drive (although the unit only support USB 2.0). The drive mounted with no problem and I start playing a 4.4GB 2hr 720p .Read more ›
To sum up the experience so far: This device is what I have been waiting for a long time. This is my 4th tablet in last few years. Two are/were Androids. And one Window-based Acer W500. So I am not unfamiliar with tablets. I also know that there can't be one tablet which will fit all needs for all users. But this one is perfect for me, despite minor issues, to the point of giving this device a 5-star rating here.
Here are my reasons for the rating:
1) A very long battery life! I have yet to push this to the claimed 18 hours but I can already tell that a 'normal' daily use of email, Office, some You Tube, some web surfing etc should not be a problem--10 hours should be easy to achieve. This means a full workday without carrying power cords etc. Certainly can't say that about my Acer W500.
2) Light weight: The tablet portion is only 1.3 lbs. Adding the keyboard doesn't make it much heavier--this is essentially along the lightest of the ultra-books but significantly cheaper AND with a stellar battery life which no ultrabook can match! Also, not many ultra books are out there which have detachable touch-screens.
3) Full Windows experience. Yes, that is important to me and probably to the roughly billion PC users who may be considering an affordable tablet in the Windows environment. Forget about the negative reviews of an split OS--switching between Windows Metro and desktop is not a big deal especially considering that you can do so much in the desktop environment until Metro applications catch up. Microsoft has just given us two Operating System in one device without extra charges.Read more ›
