Acer ICONIA A200 Tablet

The thing that seems to be overlooked- and really sets this tablet apart- is the “Full-Size USB 2.0 Port.” You wont find that in many other tablets and definitely not on a Nexus 7.

Great for watching video, moving files quickly or using an external controller. It mounts NTFS formatted drives (high capacity). There are some reviews showing use of external keyboards and even gaming controllers.

If that one is too long for you and you’re down for a challenge check out this video. Took me a minute to adjust to the accent but it’s pretty a good review.


I see that it has a USB 2.0. My wife travels abroad and some hotels only have RJ45 ethernet. Will a USB ethernet dongle work with this tablet?

Probably. Android is just an application running on an underlying Ubuntu Linux, so it works with whatever USB devices Ubuntu has a driver for. You’ll have to try it to be sure, but I have a cheap Android 2.3 tablet and it recognized everything I plugged into it so far, including flash drives, Bluetooth adapters and network adapters.

I’m not so sure about that. Discussion about that here:
Looks like it might potentially work with some adapters but can’t find any absolute confirmation.

Ok, let me see here, 7" vs 10", 8gb vs 16gb… i was only glancing but i am sure that is just the begining… got one last time it was here for my birthday, love it

If that was the case, why did you spring for the second. They do have guarantees for things like that

I bought one of these from woot. I love it! Great performer. I dont wanna drop 300-400 on a tablet, yep I’m a cheapskate. I was considering putting cyanogen on it, but ICS is smooth in and of itself.

I have several tablets (none are today’s deal though) and I will say that if you need something that can do most of what laptops/net books can do, but don’t need the harddrive space, then a tablet is a good, cheaper alternative. Tablets are also more robust than laptops/net books are, where kids are concerned.

I have this and a Nexus 7. I think that you should just go with the Nexus 7.

This was deal of the day about a month ago, purchased one, received it, set it up and then it froze and wouldn’t do anything. Called Acer and they wouldn’t honor 90 day warranty for this refurbished unit. woot refunded after two weeks. Buyer beware.

I bought a Motorola Xoom tablet from woot a few months ago, it is running Ice Cream Sandwich and I am able to move apps to the SD card.

This has a 90-day Woot warranty. If you have any issues, you should contact, not Acer.

(Sorry you had problems with your Acer. :frowning: )

OK, that’s just plain wrong, my friend. You absolutely CAN install apps to a removable sdcard IF you have one in the unit. The thing is, the Nexus does not have removable storage.

I contacted Woot and they said all they could do was refund as they didn’t have anymore. Acer called me a few days after I sent it back and said they were wrong and that it was under warranty. Since I had already sent it back I couldn’t get them to repair. Wish they hadn’t told me it wasn’t under warranty when I called them to begin with after woot advertised a 90 day manufacturer warranty. At least woot backed it up and refunded my money :slight_smile:

Is this manufacturer refurbished or seller refurbished?

I bought one of these about a month ago. It seems to be working just fine. However, while playing videos from YouTube it couldn’t keep up and I needed to watch the videos on my laptop instead.

$30 cheaper today at Ben’s Outlet, + free shipping–makes for a $35.00 savings.

[MOD: That is an 3.2 Android with 8GB. Ours is 4.0 Android with 16GB (TT)]

But 8GB at Ben’s. This one is 16GB.

Again, that’s the Android 3.2 model with 8GB. The one on Sellout is Android 4.0 and 16GB.
