Engadget Review

The W510 is a relatively inexpensive hybrid offering best-in-class battery life. Still, its cramped, netbook-like keyboard could be a dealbreaker.

CNET
Offering low-powered Intel Atom tablet/laptop hybrids for $750 or more is a dodgy proposition for budget-looking systems such as the Iconia W510, but all-day battery life is a great selling point.

SlashGear
... if you’re a Windows user and want a mobile device ready for everyday action and a relatively large amount of battery time, that’s where you’ll find the greatness in the Iconia W5.

Notebookcheck
If you can accept the second-rate touchpad and heat development during load, do not need much power for your work and value the device's flexibility, you will find a solid companion in Acer's Iconia W510.

IT Pro Portal
Usability is affected by the compromises of the keyboard layout, but the W510 makes up for it with a fine screen and a comfortable weight. It’s not the best productivity tool or the best media tablet, but it’s a solid general-purpose choice.

Mobile Tech Review
... for those of you who expect tablets to run the same apps as your computer, the Acer W510 is worth a serious look.

Laptop Magazine
The Acer Iconia W510 offers very long battery life and a useful keyboard dock, making this Windows 8 tablet-notebook hybrid a solid but somewhat pricey choice.
 
80
PC Mag
The Acer Iconia W510-1422 goes all day long and most of the night, with a highly portable design, and a docking keyboard that lets you choose between laptop and tablet.
 
70
Computer Shopper
This Clover Trail Atom-powered convertible tablet PC is attractive and well-built, with extraordinary battery life when used with its keyboard base. It's good for business users with light computing (and long endurance) needs, but power users will want a better CPU and more RAM.
 
70
PC World
In the end, eying those others might be a good idea--the W510 is a decent product, but it's not great and there's a lot of competition.

Wired
Anyone who’s looking for a daily productivity tool will find the epic waits, mysterious blank screens, and occasional crashes simply unsatisfactory.
