Screenshots are now possible (by holding the volume-down and power buttons simultaneously)

Performance is generally good, except when unlocking after sleeping. It takes a while for the CPU to catch up (I noticed the sluggishness and installed a CPU monitor to see if I was correct...now I need to find what's causing the slow down); however, once it does everything is considerably snappier.
It doesn't seem that Acer included any new or updated bundled software; however, I've also noticed that Windows navigates the USB attached devices more quickly and a problem I periodically had where certain folder would never show up seems to have been resolved.
I haven't had any problems with any application I use regularly, so, so far, I'd say that at least for me this was a very successful update.

Wifi connects at home much faster.
Default browser seems smoother.
Have not tested battery life yet though.

@poppyspoppy: I updated manually by downloading the update and installing it.
Please note that if you update by this method you do so at your own risk. SLD cannot be held responsible if you brick your tablet. I'm sure there's nothing to worry about but you never know.

I did gind that ifI decrease the video qulaity the sync is much better, but it does seem ICS does not handle video as weel as HC or prior. I also have a gtablet, with half the memory and it plays video that ICS has problems with (e.g HBO2GO)

I've downloaded direct from Acer and it just says application not installed.
