    It is in three parts, so will need click the other two parts (different article dates). This guy is a media and tech geek, so knows what he is talking about, unlike some other reviewers. Here is an interesting tidbit from the third & final part of the review:

    "At this point things didn’t look good for the A500 in terms of high-def playback, but switching to Clear.fi and DoubleTwist I found that the few 720p and even 1080p files which I could open, such as MPEG4 AVC, played quite smoothly. So it seems the problem is more related to media player software than the device itself, but maybe readers will have more luck getting it to work smoothly (leave a comment if you’ve got some helpful advice)."

    I thought Clear.fi was just a media steaming app, so have not used it yet. Here is the first part of the review to get started.

    Hands on: Acer Iconia A500 tablet

    We differ on the definitions of 'best' and 'practical'. ;)
