          Comments about Acer 16GB Iconia A1 8" Tablet (Pure White):

          I just bought my first tablet, and after a huge amount of research, decided on the Acer Iconia A1-810. So far, I have not been disappointed with the quality, the amount of "do'dads", weight, ease of holding, etc. The only problem seems to be with the lack of a hands-on user manual. None is shipped with the product. The on-line version seems a bit lacking in being user-friendly. It seems as though some info is just not there. More explanation is needed, and forget about clear and informative help from the phone customer service. The agents seemed to be very impatient and in a hurry to go home. My suggestion is talk to others who have an Android operating system for tips and just play with the tablet. It won't break. I think I will love it after I become more familiar with what it will actually do. I love all the apps; there seems to be tons of them available, and many of them are free. The other problem is that it has been almost impossible to locate a purple cover with a handstrap that will fit it! This is a bad time of year to be trying to order something specific. Other than that, I think it is a terrific product and value for the money. I hightly recommend it.

              Tablet sent out quickly and arrived earlier than expected. Good battery life. Ordered a 32gb microSD card for additional storeage. It loads apps quickly and streams netflix and other streaming services without a hitch. It holds a 135mb/s connection to my N router. Lots of great apps, and it had at least 2 firmware updates which came in without a hitch. The speaker leaves much to be desired so plan on using headphones if you really want to enjoy sound. I installed a file explorer and stream video from my windows share directories without a hitch. Very nice. Good job Acer!

                Overall, this tablet performs very satisfactory. It comes with plenty of preloaded apps, it is fast, its battery life is excellent, very customizable, and has many other positive features. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable, quality tablet. It was delivered 4 days BEFORE the scheduled date. It comes with a basic Startup Guide, and the full manual -- 53 pages in .pdf format -- can be downloaded from Acer's website.
                I will buy a second one for my wife. She stopped cooking since I do not let her to use mine.

                          It's perfect for ebook reading, and while it's not quite as fast as I'd hoped, it's considerably faster than my old tablet (a Samsung galaxy tab 8.9), and 16 GB + a 32 GB SD card gives me all the space I need for books, movies, pictures, comics, and music. The one downside is that the speaker is not very loud, but since the only time I listen to movies or music on it I use headphones, that's not a problem.

                              It makes a good first tablet. I ordered it as a gift to my nephew but I bought another one for myself after I used it as trial. Some times the touch screen is not responsive to the clicks, but the overall performance of the tablet is worth the price I paid. I mean, we can't expect ipad like performance for half the price. The screen size is ideal at 8 inch.

                                  For the price you can not find a better tablet. What can I say? It's faster than my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. The touchscreen is more responsive. It's just the perfect size. The screen is bright and clear. The battery seems to go forever. Oh, and it has a memory card slot.
                                  The only negative I can think of is the front facing camera isn't so hot.
                                  If you're in the market for a budget android tablet, the Iconia is the one.

                                        People like to compare this tablet with the iPad Mini, and I think that is rather pointless. Both share the same size and screen resolution, but the Acer Iconia is superior in every way I'd say. It is a top quality Android product with more features and functionality than the iPad Mini, but at about half the cost.

                                        I use my Acer A1-810 primarily for entertainment. I watch videos on it, play games, listen to music, podcasts and radio programs. The size is just right to hold in your hand. I did buy a case to protect it when I travel, and the case becomes an easel for easy viewing when I don't want to hold it.

                                        I've had this tablet for about two weeks now and am delighted with it. I did a lot of research before I bought it, and I feel I made the perfect decision.
