Great Product

By The Shopper

from Ontario

I am familiar with Acer products and it's products are tried, tested and proven again and again. Easy set up and quick to navigate. Screen is just the right size to look at movies. This has HDMI capability. Great if you wish to connect it to a big screen. The cost is also competitive and worth it when compared to similar devices/tablets. This tablet is worth the money.

Great Product But Too Long Of A Wait

By Darsy1

from Vancouver (BC)

Bronze Reviewer

When my tablet finally arrived, I loved it, which I knew I would in spite of the long wait. It's faster, it's lighter the sound is superior and the resolution seems to be a lot more clear. I ordered this as a Showstopper but now that I've done more research, there wasn't much of a savings. At least Acer made up for everything by throwing in some freebies such as the anti virus program. I really feel for those shoppers who ordered this as a gift and expected it to arrive in a timely manner.....I thinks we were somewhat misled. Regardless, it's a great product as far as tablets go but only at the Showstopper price. There's no way I would pay full price.

Very Happy once I Finally got it



All Star Reviewer

I wrote an earlier review before the product came - and feel I need to do an update now that I have had it for a couple of weeks. I am keeping it. I was fully expecting to return to sender the day it arrived without even opening the box .. I was so upset about the time it took and the price I paid - not much of a deal I thought - BUT - I decided to open the box and at least give it a fair try. I had purchased another tablet - Nexbook - and was not happy at all with it - The day they showed this Acer Tablet it looked amazing compared to mine. So now that I have had it for a couple of weeks I AM KEEPING IT . It is 10X faster than my other tablet ... the video/movies/tv shows are in HD LED - better quality than my 46" Sony TV ... The battery fully charges in less than 4 hours and it will stay charged for 2-3 days depending how much I use. ... Yes it was a pain to wait all this time and Yes it might not be a major deal but Yes it is an amazing little tablet and for that reason I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars. I LOVE IT :-)

Disgusted with the wait

By bodi2609

from Oromocto, NB

Love this product. Its fast clear and does everything I need. However was so disgusted it took 3 weeks to get it. Was not told that it had to be ordered and I think that is very deceptive. When I called to find out where my product was the person I spoke with really didn't care. Offered nothing to ease the situation. Just said its on order. Not impressed.

It's a decent product, but....

By Bob a geek

from Vancouver

Helpful Reviewer

I was under the impression that we would be getting the product before others (in Canada), but it turned out to be pre-ordered. I received it Mar 25th. I also found a cheaper price elsewhere and as such, although it is a decent product, I would not recommend this here.

The Next Issue product and the other bundles are over-rated.

All the products need registration and the emails that action produces!

I get lots of use-handy Android tablet

By Kat

from Edmonton, AB

I have enjoyed my Acer Android tablet since it arrived last spring. (It has a March manufacturing date, must have had more demand than stock in Feb.) Acer is a good name, so no issues with updates, etc. It works as well today as it did when I first charged its battery.
(I had a learning curve, not owning an Android or iPad device before! LOL)
The battery life is good, the images are crisp. I read magazines on it, multi-task with a few apps open at once, and download whatever quickly.
Too bad the Fitbit app I wanted to run on it has its Android blue-tooth limits, oh well. But I take this little tablet with me everywhere! It serves me well!

Delayed Delivery but OK product

By Mel

from Halifax, Nova Scotia

It took a few weeks to arrive. I almost cancelled the order having to wait so long. Once I got the product I didn't see anything for the extra month of subscription that was promised so didn't end up gaining anything from that. The things I did see to sign up for needed a credit card to keep charging me after the free period is over and I am not game for those deals. The tablet itself is fine for using apps etc. I am pretty sure it is cheaper elsewhere though.

a long wait

By Don

from Simcoe Ont

I finally.received my order a week ago First disappointment was the long wait,second I do believe it is priced higher than some retaile stores will be charging.On the good side,it is very easy to set up and use,most APS are already installed....may be thats the bonus..very clear screen and takes good pictures...I"am glad I got the cover for it... I will keep this tabletl...but not sure about the service fromTSC...the Acer name sold me on this product.

Not sure how good a deal this was



All Star Reviewer

I too have read that this tablet would sell in the USA for around $149.00 and in Canada for $199.00 once it arrives here. Like the other comment by Skylo, I don't see a bundle. Everything listed comes in the box - nothing extra - I have not received mine yet - not impressed as I think the price listed is way to high and even the showstopper price we purchased it at is over the market value .. not sure what happened here but I don't see any special deal either ... would love for someone to correct me if I am wrong because I hate to think I made a bad choice and also that I trust the shopping channel when they tell me it is a good deal.

returned product

By grandma, but fairly computer literate

from Calgary (Alberta)

I was really looking forward to this product. Firstly it took a month to arrive, it did not have an instruction booklet, I found it did not do what had been promised - could not load my own e books from either my reader or desktop computer, took tablet to a computer expert (???) to get help - $50 later was no more aware of the use, but he had added Skype for me. So I sent it back and purchased a 10" tablet from a local store and it comes with lessons.
