    Default Acer Iconia A1

    Hey all so my mum bought my sister an acer iconia a1 today, for 150£. I wa just wondering if this will be ok for her to listen to music, go on faebook, take pics, general web browsing and watching a few vids on youtube. I looked at the specs and assume it is, just wanted a second opinion, thanks!

    It should be fine. Acer makes pretty solid tablets, although don't expect an amazing camera. Their screens also tend to be a little on the mediocre side, but for a budget tablet, they should work well for what she's going to use it for.

    Brilliant, thanks. I thought it should be fine, specs aren't much different from the galaxy tab 3 7" which was 40£ more.

    I have had my acer a100 for over a year now. Love it still! Works great. I don't get what some say about the screen. Mine is just fine. I don't look at a screen from sideways or off angles, who the heck does? I download movies, streamed netflix, listen to music both stored and streamed. Have installed a 32GB memory card. Picked up a cover from amazon and a spare ORIGINAL charger. Do not use an aftermarket charger! It will fry your motherboard! I learned that the hard way! This is a great tablet!

    Just a bit of pocket fuzz!

    I agree that the A100 was, at the time, an overall good value. My problem with the screen's viewing angle was that if I looked at it from an angle of about 20-30 degrees from perpendicular, the image would actually start to look like a film negative. This would be a problem if, for example, I was lying in bed and holding the tablet on my chest trying to watch something.
