Hardware is nice, but needs better software
3 May 2013
Summary: When it comes to hardware, this tablet is tops. Reasonable size and weight. Keyboard is a little small, but beats the virtual ones hands down. Being able to plug in a flash drive to move files around is fantastic. Front and back cameras are cool. Okay, so the function buttons and so on are a little counterintuitive. Trying to find the power button confused me. But those are as much getting used to it compared to an iPad as anything else.
Summary: You're not sure about the keyboard. Is it too heavy, is it too bulky, is it really any better than the screen keyboard and is it worth the trouble? I've been using this thing for about a year and continue to be impressed. I love it. My background is years of PC, switched to Mac, family currently has 7 active Apple devices. I bought the Slider (for the keyboard) for a specific business project.
Summary: I have had my Slider for a year. I love the size of the tablet and the convenience of the keyboard. I really like being able to back and forth from my laptop to my tablet with MS Word documents. I recently made a trip to Kenya and took the slider with me with a number of documents on a 16gb flash drive. The tablet worked flawlessly. Since returning home I had a problem with the tablet charging. I replaced the connecting cord and the problem was resolved.
Summary: As far as the epad goes it is nicely set up. The quality of the pad is great. I was not to sure about the "Slider Keyboard" but it exceeded my expectations. The screen & graphics are nice as well. The biggest problem I have is that everywhere I read it stated Adobe Flash Player was supported, that was the main reason I bought it. When I got the epad I could not get it to download etc...called tech support and was told it was no longer supported.
Summary: These tablets are cool but very impractical, currently. For myself, I have not found an application or apps that would justify myself buying a tablet of any kind. Save up and just buy a laptop. These tablets are pretty much giant smartphones without the phones (same user interface, not like a PC or Windows). Waste of money, I regret everyday.
Summary: I originally purchased this tablet for college because of the built-in keyboard. Overall I love this thing! It has both a front and rear camera that is great for recording lectures and if you have the screen up the sound is great! I've put in a 16gb micro sd card for more storage and could not have a better experience with the synching of music and movies to save space on the tablet for apps.
