amazon Acer Iconia W3 reviews
If seen from a distance, you might mistakenly believe Acer Iconia W3-810 designed with metal shell, but actually it is the plastic shell fake silver. This actually causes the shell of the positive effect of visual stimuli users, the machine looks not feel cheap but thick black contour around the screen is a drawback of the machine. This problem makes the size of Iconia W3 pushed up quite a lot compared to other rival tablets 8 inches.
If you compare the weight and thickness of the Acer Inocia W3 (weighing 498 g, 11.35 mm thick) and “underdog” completely than the iPad mini (weighing 308 g, 7.2 mm thick) or Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 (heavy 338 g, 8 mm thick). Fortunately, Acer’s design W3 edges rounded section should hold the camera still gives the feeling of comfort despite the use with one hand is very difficult.
Acer Iconia W3-810 owns 8.1-inch screen for 800×1.280 pixel resolution with high sharpness, but the contrast and viewing angles are not good. Especially in conditions of use under room light is relatively strong, if you look at the screen W3 with 70 degree angle on the color has a lot of distortion.
Acer Iconia W3-810 use under sunlight is also relatively difficult. The cause is a machine with low screen brightness, we measured a maximum brightness level of 222 lux, 40% lower than the average brightness of the current tablets (364 lux) and only half screen brightness on the iPad mini (432 lux) or Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 (489 lux). Some other tablets Windows run Atom chips like HP Envy x2 (306 lux) and ASUS VivoTab Smart (292 lux) also have better brightness than Iconia W3.
Hardware keyboard and virtual keyboard
Iconia W3 is equipped with a virtual keyboard system and hardware keyboards. But to own a hardware keyboard dock the Bluetooth connection, you will have to pay an additional $ 79.99. First of all, the system of the virtual keyboard layout is pretty good, placed horizontally bring comfortable feeling to use, accurate typing and supports handwriting recognition.
Meanwhile W3 hard keyboard slim format, designed much larger than W3 to bring broad sense typing more comfortable and to users in general is a little hard pressed keys. Our real test, you can type 68 words per minute with error rates of about 3%. However, unfortunately this is not a hardware keyboard trackpad or touchpad equipped so you will be forced to adjust the cursor using touch screen should be slightly inconvenient for a while.

Iconia W3 not run Windows RT version that’s been cut more complete version of Windows 8 with features such as a real PC. However, if the more advanced Windows tablets equipped with Intel Core i5 or i3 powerful W3 only own the Atom processor Z2760 with 2 GB RAM. Therefore, do not be astonished when W3 average performance especially speed data read and write.
Besides, this tablet also takes about 15 seconds to boot into the operating system Windows 8, Similar Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2. Then, in the PCMark 7 test, which Iconia W3 score achieved is 1447, also equivalent to several products running Atom same type as HP ElitePad 900 or Dell Latitude 10. However, after a period of use W3, I found this product exists too many shortcomings.
First, configure the weak and small screen, so you hardly can be used to play games on the PC. Those who intend to use the W3 to “fight” BioShock Infinite or Sleeping Dogs will need to be reviewed. Meanwhile, Windows 8 operating system is also relatively little support for touch screen game. If the entertainment was not pleasant, the ability to work well in the form of W3, type text or Excel spreadsheets created relatively difficult because the screen is too small, users will have eyes Regulators continuously to be able to observe the word “tiny” on the screen.
Although performance unimpressive but Iconia W3 must recognize that battery life is great. In the actual test, the Acer Iconia W3 can play continuously 1 video storage built-in, pop Wi-Fi connectivity and screen brightness to 65% in 9 hours 21 minutes.
W3 can say is a very special product, it fills mini tablet segment that the Windows 8 tablet is not supported. However, there is reason to tablet manufacturers still open for this segment because the Windows tablet form is not suitable for operation with a small screen so inappropriate when working and entertainment platform pretty poor.
