Firstly, it took weeks to get the package, to many.When we received the Acer it had already been "used" by someone, likely an Acer installations person. It was set-up to work with voice instructions and there was NO instructions manual with the tablet? (How stupid is that.) I had to find the system on the Acer website, also not an easy item to find as I'm guessing this was a special build for the Shopping Channel, download the User Manual and only then, after I formatted the system did it boot up in any way that I could start to use it and set it up to my needs.Also, I made the assumption this would be an easy system to use to temporarily store photos to as we were heading out for a 3 week vacation in Europe. Well, it's not so don't be fooled by the hype. You have to download Apps (free, at least the ones I tried) and then figure out how to move the photos off the 32GB microSD to the tablet. Again, not an easy thing to do but it works, somewhat!The tablet itself provides great image quality off the screen and as we're getting used to using it it's becoming more easy to use, at least for those Apps we want to use.I would recommend this but only to someone who has a good user knowledge and download the User Manual and review before you get the system. Note: The user manual isn't all that helpful for product usage other than the basics of the tablet.
Absolutely love this tablet.It is everything I expected and more.

By Shop locally
from Port Hope, On
I have had the acer iconia in my home for 21 days.I have hardly used it because it came without startup instructions. I use a computer and smartphone regulary but am unfamiliar with android. Just got the manual downloaded yesterday (with tech support) and hoping it will help. Tech support also hard to understand and not too patient.I have not been able to use any of the the free stuff like security and language learning. That will take more lengthy phone calls.I think this tablet will be amazing when I learn to use it, if I learn to use it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Very nice tablet
from laval, quebec
Very nice tablet, long delivery time though. No user manual. Had to print it from the acer site. Also have to buy more security protection, have not done that yet. All in all a good purchase!
Good Product, But no "User Guide"
from Fort Erie, Ontario
Good Product. But no "User Guide" ( I see other clients'comments below had same problem). -Acer Tablet HELP Line difficult to both locate & connect to and also for them to understand my need for a "USER GUIDE". -Acer's Help Line did finally e-mail the User Guide's lengthy web address, but they reported that my Acer did not have the capability to download the USER Guide (strange)? -So to download, the Help Line person had to e-mail the web address to my older HP computer. -The User Guide still not the best, but my connection with the Help Line support people has improved greatly, so its also a learning trend with me. Final issue, the Shopping Channel stated that my Acer Tablet to come by Canada Post to my lock box, but UPS delivered & left the computer outside in the rain for two days on my front porch.But I love my Acer & its price and I would recommend to others.
Would have loved to have a quick install included with this tablet. Finally found the manual on line to be able to print. Took a very long time to get here. Still learning how to use it.
Some computer savvy required ... but fun
from Red Deer, AB
This is my first tablet. It is fast and fun to work with and very easy to function. HOWEVER, there were no initial startup procedures upon arrival, and without some I.T. experience, I could see this being VERY frustrating.The tablet itself is very slippery, maybe by design to encourage you to buy a cover/case/prop-up device. I know I will.As others noted - the security protection was minimal.
Not What I Expected
The product was delivered very late, and Customer Service at the Shopping Channel was not able to give me accurate information. When it did arrive, it came without a user guide. Since I have never used an Android driven product, I had a great deal of difficulty getting it up and running. (It didn't just start up right out of the box like the promo said.) Acer on-line was not helpful at all. If you have a lot of time and patience, you can probably get what you want from it. Otherwise, stick with an O/S you know.
