Acer ICONIA Tab A500 10.1" Tablet PC - Tegra 250 1 GHz - Silver
Best Featured Tablet
This tablet is the one with the most and best features out there. It's fast, has a full sized USB for hosting everything from keyboards to mice to gamepads to thumb drives to even full-sized hard drives. I frequently connect my DSLR camera to it for a quick dump of photos. Netflix is 100% working on this tablet, and even when it wasn't that was Netflix's choice/fault -- not Acer's. The best way to watch quality HD movies is to convert or download them yourselves -- streamed movies stink on any device, and is something made available for iOS devices because you can't put your own converted movies on those without jailbreaking or jumping through iTunes hoops. Acer provides excellent support for this tablet with quick OS updates (faster than other manufacturers), and the tablet is extremely well-made, including the screen being Gorilla Glass. Reviewers have complaining about the weight of this tablet since before it was actually released. It's a few OUNCES heavier than others because of its aluminum casing --OUNCES not pounds. Anyone claiming there aren't very many Android tablet apps available is probably an iPad owner who is still upset their browser doesn't support Flash. There are plenty of tablet designed apps, and unlike the iPad, Android tablets can run phone apps, which do not cause any problems that the other reviewer alleges. Best electronic device I've purchased in a long time and I even paid full MSRP when it first came out. Absolutely ZERO regrets.
Best of the best atm.
First off, this tab DOES support Netflix (although I don't use it, but a 10 second Google search will show you how).It can be overclocked to 1.6 ghz and 1.7 ghz very soon via flashing a new rom.It is slightly heavier than other tabs in its class but it has an aluminum shell. Also has a full size USB port,others don't. You can flash all kinds of roms, basically making it a xoom, transformer, etc. Highly recommend this tab versus a laptop.
Better than the XOOM or SAMSUNG for the price
While others are buying iPad's this device is great for everything. We all want a tablet for surfing the internet and catching up with Facebook and this does it perfectly. Those of you looking for a tablet that does everything a laptop will do your going to be disappointed in this or the iPad. The HD games are cool but my XBOX is my choice of gaming platform so no tablet will hold a candle to any gaming console. My biggest gripe about this tablet is the weak and sometimes dis-functional WiFi card. But hey if your an elitist and have money to burn buy the more expensive brands.
Just get a laptop.
If you have a smartphone with android you have one already. There isn't alot of aps made for the android pads yet and the regular android phone aps crash on this. The worst part is that this doesn't support netflix which was one of the main reasons i bought it. It really isnt a good value considering you can buy a decent laptop in this price range that will do all of what this can do and more.
