absolutely worthless

jonathan g., Newegg
13 March 2014
  • Summary: completely worthless. steer clear of anything by this company, its all low grade knock off garbage.
  • Pros: it turns on. it has a little wifi card that can be removed and used on your pc.
  • Cons: flimsy glass screen that cant take even the slightest drop. terrible slow interface and hardware, even when flashed of the terrible software that it comes with. the wifi card included is absolute trash. expect 56k dialup type speeds.

Basic Reader with wi-fi

Lee B., Newegg
31 January 2012
  • Summary: If all you is a basic reader, with wi-fi for email, and web browsing. You can't beat the price. But having looked at the Kinlde Fire, and Nook Tablet. Both are far superior to this in screeen quality and processor power.
  • Pros: I did the Android update. Works better and is closer to my Android phones function. Able to access my e-mail through the wi-fi in most of the house. Update came with an office suite that can read PDF Files (all of my Company documents are PDF). Screen resolution is OK. Web Browser is OK
  • Cons: Still slow, and will not run graphics intensive games like Angry Birds. Screen resolution is only OK.

Awesome Tablet for the money

Chris M., Newegg
28 January 2012
  • Summary: Definitely go to the Pandigital website to buy a protective sleeve or case for it. I wasn't able to find an off-the-shelf cover for it. $17 for a cover, and $15 for Oops-I-dropped-it insurance is well worth it.
  • Pros: Great tablet for the price! Runs Android 2.6. Easy access to B&N store, plus ability to view downloaded epubs, PDFs, and Word files through eReader app. Easy access to Android store through SlideMe app. Easily matches the performance and flexibility of many other high end tablets.
  • Cons: Internal Wifi antenna was damaged upon receipt. I wasn't able to connect to any of my wireless routers. Newegg issued me a rapid refund. Ended up having to buy the same model from a different source because Newegg was out of stock. There are issues with some apps from the app store not installing...

great value

jamin b., Newegg
26 January 2012
  • Summary: For the money it's hard to beat. Flash it with the firmware available from Slatedroid and you have a very functional multimedia mini tablet compatible with most android apps. with an 800mhz Samsung CPU and 256mb ram it's perfect for light web browsing, reading ebooks, watching videos, playing games,...
  • Pros: lots of bang for your buck if you want to hack it into a mini tablet. 800mhz Samsung CPU and 256mb ram
  • Cons: stock firmware leaves much to be desired.

Glad I didn't pay $199 for it.

Russell O., Newegg
4 January 2012
  • Summary: This thing was almost worthless before the firmware upgrade. Now it seems to work OK...definitely NOT worth paying full price for...but for $69.99, I'm OK with it.
  • Pros: cheap
  • Cons: -Had to upgrade the ROM before it was worth having. -Very s-l-o-o-o-w out of the box.

User Review

Anonymous, Newegg
29 December 2011
  • Summary: I am not sure if newegg would leave me much options. disappointed! It is a terrible product to be sold on the site. I believe I am not the only one who has the same complain.
  • Pros: Not much!
  • Cons: After working on 2-3 days, it is dead apparently with no reasons. Spent another $8 for shipping back to Newegg for RMA and found this product is no longer available. It was meant to be a present. How embarrassing! Still waiting for rep to tell me what's next option.

Wife's Christmas Gift

Ric T., Newegg
29 December 2011
  • Summary: Have heard a lot of negative feedback on this Item. But for the Price, and it being a first time E-reader it was a good value. We weren't looking for a E-reader that acted like a Super tablet. I think my wife will be pleased. One thing for sure..
  • Pros: This is my Wife's first E-reader, and she says she Loves it. Good Price, Very clear screen, Item came very quickly.
  • Cons: Very slow processing, Touchscreen hard to tap, a little heavy, Sound quality a little disappointing.

Pretty good

Brad S., Newegg
28 December 2011
  • Summary: if you can get it for under $100 it is worth it anything over it would not be. as far as finding a case for it forget best buy, staples, offfice max, or Walmart. They don't have one that fits. pandigital.net has several that do.
  • Pros: Good price battery life and glass screen. Much better once I was able to update it. could be a bit faster. if it were for me I would have rooted it but my wife does not want that. I liked it enough that I purchased a similar one for me (which I will root)
  • Cons: Pandigital was not prepared to handel support for the Christmas crunch thier site was down for nearly 3 days and the phone support was bussy for almost as long. the way it came did not have a marketplace for apps of any kind. The update fixes that but it took days and several attempts to update i...
