After seven months use, tablet is giving me problems.It completely died, took it in to Mississauga for repair. Told it was a problem with the screen not responding. Got it back and it worked for 5 days and then the same problem. Must now take it back in for repair. Certainly hope this is not going to be an ongoing problem. I was going to get another Acer product but am changing my mind. Too bad, I originally was very pleased with my purchase. Just finished paying for it on easy pay and this happens.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Purchased this last fall and put it away for my son for his 15th birthday. I just gave it to him Monday, and the screen is cracked by Wednesday. It slipped between the pillows on the couch, and he sat down not aware of it being there. I have contacted Acer, and they will repair it for him for $249.00 + tax + shipping and handling, so total it is going to cost me another $300.00. Not happy at all with the quality!!!! This should never have happened this easily and now I have a very upset child with no birthday gift.

I was disappointed in this tablet. On the good side it was fast and fairly easy to use. On the bad side the screen is poor. Doesn't compare with my Blackberry Playbook (bought at TSC). For those people looking for instructions you can go to Acer and download. I would recommend this tablet for a first tablet or it would be excellent for students.

I only rated this tablet as good because while it is responsive and fast the voice to text feature is disappointing and inadequate. If you ask a question it is fine but if you want to dictate text it does not recognize commands like period, comma, new paragraph etc. It appears that this problem originates with google but still when so much of the product advertising time on TV is spent on this feature it should work! So if you are looking for a standard android tablet this one is good but if you want more you will be disappointed.

Acer 8" Tablet
from Ottawa, Ontario
It took forever to receive the product (5 weeks ) but all seems well except for a few of the free apps that come in the package. Any of the music apps will shut down the tablet to a crawl. User manual was easy to find on line but it takes time to 'play' and find things. Overall happy but will think hard before buying fro TSC again.

Second Review on this..
By Box Lady Di
from Woodbridge, Ontario
While I originally rated this a 4-star, I am submitting another review / update. It has been less than 30 days since I received this item, and it will no longer charge. It is completely dead and is going right back!! I only used it 20is times and it was not abused in any way. Such a shame but I refuse to waste my hard-earned money. Ive become very disappointed with TSC of late.. too many products either not as advertised or not up to par where quality is concerned. I Will be doing my shopping elsewhere in the future.

Love my Tablet!
I was concerned at first about not having a manual, but started playing with it and have learned on my own. I love this tablet! Just like anything else, you need to play with to gain an understanding. I have had no issues with it whatsoever. As for a cover, I was Googled it, and found one from another website for about $22.00 which I received in about a week.
