I love my a100 and with ICS I'm even more inlove with it. Now that we have full ICS root I can use GL to SD again and also just incase theres the SD swap mod that also works for it. And ICS a500 build.prop change. Best $250 investment I've made

I am a construction inspector for a major oil company and I use mine to fill out reports in excel and MS Word in the field. Before I got this tab for $250, I would jot down all the info in a tally book and type the reports when I got back to the office. It saves me tons of time transferring info to my computer and it fits in my back pocket while in the field. All of my code books and spec books are now at a touch of my finger and instantly accessible ands reports are forwarded to my computer via email attachments. The battery is sufficient enough for me to make it through a 10hr shift without having to look for a charger.

Well worth the price for me! Loving the 7" tablet right now running ICS.

I bought it for my daughter to replace the terrible Cruz 101 thing I got her. I got for $189 and it has been superb. We watch movies, read books, surf the web, play games, get yoga videos, etc....

I am more than happy with this purchase and very impressed. Android really never impressed me before. I hope the non leaked ICS upgrade works just as well or better.

My only gripe is not being able to charge it through the usb port and wondering if I'll be able to put Windows 8 on it later!

This is the 3rd 7" tablet I have tried. I returned the previous 2. I tried the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus (twice) and the Archos 70b (Honeycomb). Out of the box this beat both from my perspective. The Samsung's main problem was TouchWiz and proprietary ports (for me...ymmv). I am glued to e-mail and Samsung's TW mail app would not stay in sync...had to re-do my account frequently.

The Archos was dog-slow and many Market apps (Facebook, for example) were "not compatible." I could have side-loaded but given it was so slow, chose not to.

My only real grip is with the viewing angle...but that was well known before I bought it.

ICS definitely was a big improvement...if you haven't put that in, I recommend it.

Still happy with my a100, number of books is growing, more mp3, more video and photo I don't worry about storage space since I got additional 32g and might get 64g later. I also sign up with box.net and got 50g cloud storage for free.

Planning to just wait for the OTA official ICS update from acer.

I love my A100 too, especially now that I have ICS on it and with ICS my previously non working gps started working great finally so I started using it as my gps navigation device too.

I've recently purchased a 32GB SD card for mine, I haven't had this much storage since my Creative Zen days! Loving the stock ICS music app, even managed to get some Gundam on here too. I'm not sure but does the A100 support cards of that size, 64, that is?
