Acer Iconia W510 Review

 

The hybrid tablet-laptop segment is getting more exciting by the day. Here's a deal: If you find blowing up almost a lakh on a fancy high-end hybrid Windows 8 device ridiculous, how about a sweet-looking mainstream device for less than half the price?...

Unlike larger hybrids with 11.6-inch and 12-inch displays with full HD resolution, the Iconia W510 sports a 10-inch IPS display that has a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. It isn’t as crisp, but not too bad either thanks to the smaller display. On the...

Review Acer Iconia W510 Convertible

 

Keyboard tablet. Tablets together with a keyboard dock are curren

Long battery runtimes with dock; Bright IPS screen; Solid keyboard, wide letter keys; Solid workmanship; Dock can be used as a stand

Partly cramped keyboard layout; Noticeable heat development during load; Wobbly touchpad; Danger of toppling when docked; Connectivity

If you are content with a separate Bluetooth keyboard or only the on-screen keyboard, you might consider a conventional tablet design, such as the iPad Mini or Google's Nexus.

Acer Iconia Tab W510-1422

 

Hybrid laptop and tablet designs can work by either shifting between tablet and laptop modes, or separating the tablet from a docking keyboard. The Acer Iconia W510-1422 is the latter, a 10-inch tablet running Windows 8 (32-bit), with a docking...

Seriously long battery life. Immensely portable. Windows 8

Atom processor is slow. Webcam lags. Limited storage space

The Acer Iconia W510-1422 goes all day long and most of the night, with a highly portable design, and a docking keyboard that lets you choose between laptop and tablet.

Acer Iconia W510 review: Wide-screen tablet with a clever dock

 

Acer's Atom-based Windows 8 tablet is great for video, if not books, and the docking station models are serviceable as netbook-sized laptops.

Clever docking design allows use as tablet or laptop ; Widescreen aspect ratio great for video viewing

Tepid overall styling ; Not optimally styled for reading

The W5's widescreen display will appeal to some, but kill the deal for others--a major conundrum for those eyeing the Surface and other Windows 8 tablets as well. In the end, eying those others might be a good idea--the W510 is a decent product, but...

Acer Iconia W510

 

The Acer Iconia W510 offers very long battery life and a useful keyboard dock, making this Windows 8 tablet-notebook hybrid a solid but somewhat pricey choice.

Lightweight design; Long battery life; Comfortable keyboard dock; Useful Acer Ring app

Poor graphics performance; Slow flash memory; Sluggish camera

Click to EnlargeThe Acer Iconia W510 is a fairly attractive tablet that can double as a notebook, offering a design that makes it easy to change modes, plus a comfortable keyboard and very long battery life. The fact that you can get more than 15 hours...

Acer Iconia W511 Review

 

Windows 8 hybrids are a relatively new breed, but it seems like a whole lot of tech companies have one on the market already. That includes Acer with its Iconia W511 tablet, which we are about to take through its paces. It is a 10.1-inch slate powered...

3G connectivity ; Full-blown Windows 8 with legacy app support ; Decent battery life ; Cheap for a Windows 8 hybrid

Bland design ; Dubious build quality ; Touchpad is uncomfortable

The Acer Iconia W511 is clearly aimed at tablet buyers on a tight budget, or simply people who aren't willing to spend too much on a Windows 8 hybrid device. It may look a bit uninspiring, but it's light, affordable and offers an adequate set of...

Review: Acer Iconia W510 just keeps going and going

 

After my middling feelings about Acer's Iconia W700, the Iconia W510 comes as a nice surprise. It's in roughly the same vein as the HP Envy X2: a tablet PC that docks into a keyboard, with batteries in both the keyboard and main unit. The Envy is...

Apart from adding a keyboard and second battery, the dock provides a full-sized USB port and a sturdy hinge that allows the whole unit to fold open and shut like a regular notebook PC. The dock is made of ABS plastic as opposed to the Envy X2's...

Acer Iconia W510-1432 Tablet

 

Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

Very nice, but....

 

I bought this tablet because it had full Windows 8 so I could use Office Pro with it. It works great, but the after market stylus doesn't work well with it. The capcative tip is so fat that you can't write normally or naturally. If you want to write...

Light ; Full Windows 8 ; Fast

Stylus doesn't work well ; Poor choice for writing
