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.
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 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.
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 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
