"This tablet is hard to beat with everything built in."5.0 starson by tsecreto
Pros: Solid build quality with a very slight weight gain.
Everything works really well and now with the latest update 3.2.1 the full USB supports the NTFS file system including my 640GB external drive (shows the FULL drive space and uses it well).
Cons: Wish the "N" WiFi would connect at the full 300 speed but the 72 I get is fine.
Power Cord really should have been longer, had to buy a car charger to get the extension cable but only $10 on eBay.
Summary: Really hard to beat the Acer A500 if you want all of the connectivity without having to add dongles or funny cables. As an Apple Mac user I was surprised the iPad2 just could not match the Acer. At the time of purchase there was only a $50 difference so it was not cost, the iPad was really nice & cool looking but it just kept loosing points to the Acer until choice was obvious. Even the Dolby stereo speakers was a big surprise.
Also note that this is with Android still young and it is very user friendly unless you really do not want to learn anything. The flexibility of all of those ports built in and the memory expansion of the card up to 32GB AND a thumb drive or hard drive plug in no contest.
