My girlfriend wanted a tablet after using my Nexus 7. I was going to buy her the same as what I have but then I came across the Acer Iconia B1. After looking at the spec I didn't expect much in the terms of speed, performance or quality but for what she wanted to use it for it seemed to me to good to be true. I am very tech minded and will only be happy with top quality electronic items. But this is where I was very pleasantly surprised! This item is actually very very good for the price, the screen resolution isn't the highest but is bright, reasonably sharp, graphics look clear, photos look very good. The processor seems fast enough for general use including games, browsing and having a good few apps running at the same time in the background. Touch screen can sometimes be fractionally slow when typing but really this does not pose as a major issue to the functionality of the tablet. Battery lasts about 4 hours when in constant use, when left on standby and used moderately lasts around a day which is perfect for the girlfriend. Games run well and smoothly, Google Maps with navigation using the built in GPS is a great bonus. Sound from the speaker is very good when watching catch up TV or YouTube.
At £100 you really can't go wrong with this device, you get a tablet which is made by a reputable manufacturer, it might feel a bit plasticy but if you get a case for a fiver you won't even notice and definitely won't be disappointed. And don't forget this is running Android Jellybean. Very few tablets are updated to this version of Jellybean and the quality of other uncommon brands in my own experience don't come close to how good this device is.
Overall I have a very happy girlfriend, I am very impressed and I'd say this device is suitable for any age and anyone who wants a good tablet at a very reasonable price.

I didn't buy my Acer Iconia B1 from Amazon as they were out of stock for couple of weeks, so I got it from an Acer shop in Thailand and it cost about 85 pounds.
4 weeks on and I am still very very pleased with it. It does everything my pal's Samsung Galaxy can do at a fraction of the price. It is surprisingly quick when surfing and looking for apps,
My Skype and Voipcheap have turned it into a cheap phone with free landline calls on the latter.

I suppose my main concern was about the battery, but I get a good 5-6 hours surfing, and when I use it to read my Kindle books with Wi-Fi off and the display dimmed it is appraoching 8 hours, plenty for a long coach journey.

I cant complain about the build quality, as for the price it is sturdy enough.

All in all I love it, My only complaint is that my wife keeps borrowing it, so I am getting another on payday.

Our family has gone through several tablets before arriving at our current inventory of 2 Acer Iconia B1s & 1 Google Nexus 7. I need say nothing about the Nexus 7 as it's pretty much universally accepted that it is the best 7" Android tablet around & has a stunningly low price for its specification. I got mine from the USA when exchange rates were favourable & am very happy. For my wife and son, who are much more casual users than me, I looked around and tried several 'no name' tablets which flatter to deceive with putatively impressive specifications....they were for the most part underpowered, poorly built & a complete nightmare to update; there are no readily available custom ROMs so you have to be very 'tech savvy' to do anything but stick with the very poor stock ROMs that come with these kind of tablets...there are a few exceptions but in general they're best to avoid.

Step in Acer in the form of a sales banner in Asda.....new Iconia B1 for £99. I had an Iconia A100 as one of my first tablets & I loved it with 2 reservations: it did not charge via USB & the screen, though adequate, was a little lacking from certain angles while being VERY reflective. I checked the specs of the B1 & was pleasantly surprised to find a good screen and USB charging. Plus my wife liked the blue flashing on the tablet so I bought it for her there and then. Easy to set up, a joy to use, upgrades to Jellybean 4.1.2 out of the box & is fast and fluid, fabulous value for the money, especially when you think of the Apple ipad mini starting at around £270; the Iconia is not as good as the the ipad mini but £ for £ it's a steal.

Additionally, for those who like to tinker with their gadgets, there is an Iconia B1 tool kit that allows you to root the device with minimal fear of 'bricking'....

Bought for my wife to let her get on the net quicker and for travelling. Its actually replacing her laptop, it is now only used for college work.Only downside's I see are only a screen side camera and it can only show you tube in portrait mode.For the money, absolute bargain. Battery life is good is you remember to disable the wifi and always switch it fully off .I'm thinking of getting one for myself.

I have had this item for over a year now and I am thoroughly satisfied with it. For a tablet it is a little on the cheap side and I am surprised on how well it has performed. The screen is clear and crisp and it is responsive and very stable (has crashed only 1 or 2 times in a year) and I am pleased with the OS (Jellybean). The tablet is fast enough for my needs; I am able to use apps such as Kingsoft Office and Simpsons Tapped Out without issue. If browsing the internet continuously the battery life does not last for ages (as in many tablets) but with the wifi off- e.g. while reading on the train etc it will last for hours. The clear screen allows it to perform well as an e-reader.The internal storage (0.98 gb) is a little on the low side so you can't put as many apps on it as the more higher capacity tablets; there is a micro sd card slot (for up to 32gb) and a internal sd (over 5gb) but certain items on Android must be installed or have a footprint on the internal storage.

Their are limitations and in light of these many would prefer a more upmarket model; it is excellent value for money, however, and it suits my needs perfectly (hence 5 stars). This is my first tablet and it has convinced me of the necessity of such an item; I no longer have to carry a bulky laptop and cables around with me on every train journey and it has been invaluable for my work, where I am often in areas where the use of a computer is impractical.
