Great Coaster

Marshall C., Newegg
10 September 2011
  • Summary: It was mostly frustrating to use for anything except light internet browsing. I got an iPad2 after having this a few months because I just couldn't stand it anymore. This is probably due to my expectations be a little too high for it. the screen is like an unresponsive GPS most of the time.
  • Pros: Cheap. It is now being used in my apartment as a coaster holding up a soda. It works really well for making sure the condensations doesn't get on the wood of our futon.
  • Cons: screen is weird, and the processor is a little slow at times.

More than I expected

Brian S., Newegg

  • Summary: If you purchase this with lofty IPad goal, you will be disappointed, but if your looking for a home tablet, this is an excellent buy for the price
  • Pros: I got more than I actually bargained for...internet, music, videos, ebook reader and a host of other things. It ain't an IPad but this is the closest I'll get and I have a lot of change in my pockets. The micro sd flash expandability makes a world of difference.
  • Cons: Fingerprint magnet. Touchscreen is a little touchy when it comes to navigation.

Stay Away

Jay N., Newegg
8 April 2011
  • Summary: I would give this product a 0 if I could. It should really only cost $50. With all of the problems it has, no one should have to go through such aggravation. I'll say, android os isn't really that good at all. It's alot of pain and frustration. Can tablet makers just make something that runs well.
  • Pros: It does video/browsing/e-reading
  • Cons: Android 1.5, no marketplace, crashes, slow, bad touch screen, bad customer support, and the list goes on. It costs too much.

Great!

Golf A., Newegg

  • Pros: Other than a tempermental touch screen, this is a great tablet for the money. Keep playing with screen calibration and it will get better. On my Archos 5 it worked much better after I put an antiglare screen protector on it. For the best experience, updgrade to Android Froyo 2.2 here: http://www....
  • Cons: tempermental touchscreen, but knew that going in.

Nice

Robbin N., Newegg
27 March 2011
  • Summary: I bought this instead of a nook color already rooted it and put on a different firmware that gives me access to Android Marketplace. I have been able to map network drives and copy material over the network. Android VNC into windows hosts works well,
  • Pros: Refurb units are appearing of v1 for a lot less than the v2 ones. If all you want is an ereader, with video/mp3 playback and the occasional bit of browsing/email then this device is hard to beat. v1 only has android 1.5 available, if you really want flash and angry birds etc then you best get the...
  • Cons: Didn't come with a case, or a USB host cable. Resistive screen can be a bit of a pain but a stylus fixes that.

User Review

Carlos E., Newegg
24 March 2011
  • Summary: I solved the non-alphabetical file listing in the video player by cut/pasting the video files on my micro-sd to my pc hard drive & pasting them back onto the micro-sd. This created a new modified timestamp for the files & they are now listed in ABC order.
  • Pros: Works as advertised. 800mhz processor. Speakers are better than expected. Plays all kinds of video formats, but I prefer generic MP4 and the actual video play works fine. Android 2.1 is solid on this tablet. Plenty of free apps on the Appslib.
  • Cons: Not true google apps market. Wi-Fi adapter is pretty weak, but I knew that going in. The touchscreen feels like plastic, but I expected as much for a tablet in this price range. Although the video player works fine, the files are not listed in alphabetical order, which I prefer, they seem to be l...

Returned it same day

Wayfinder, Amazon
14 March 2011
  • Summary: Okay, I can't say this is a "bad" product... but I can only rate it one star. That's not one star as in "awful"... it's one star as in very limited application. No gravometric innards (ie, it doesn't rotate the screen as you flip the device), doesn't access Android Market (goodbye tens of thousands...

Decent

Brian K., Newegg
14 February 2011
  • Summary: For what you are paying it is a decent device and does what it is supposed to do. If you want top of the line...then pay top of the line and dont get this.
  • Pros: Decent for the price. Does everything it says it does and does it well. Appslib has a decent selection of apps available.
  • Cons: Touch screen is a tad quirky at times. WiFi is a tad weak if you are more then 50 feet from the modem it will be almost 1 bar or less.

New Android 2.1 Eclair makes this a great product!

Ohio Reader "Ohio", Amazon
10 February 2011
  • Summary: I have been looking for an android tablet for my girlfriend who is in nursing school and could use it at the hospitals she does clinicals at and we found a winner. I had some worries since most of the reviews talked about the older 1.5 android installed which doesn't run too many apps.
