Purchased an Acer Iconia A500 yesterday and took it back today. One of my main objectives with any tablet is HD video playback. It failed miserably in this respect only having 262K colors and a non ISP screen. Was bummed because other than that, it is truly a good tablet, just wasn't able to do what I wanted. Also compared to the IPad 2 the battery life fell way short. My son has an IPad 2 and the clarity and colors are amazing and it's ability to play HD movies flawlessly along with everything else, makes it a winner for me, so begins my wait again to get one.
