Summary: Hard to believe that these were up to 500 quid when they first came out. The build quality is good, screen is bright, but that's where the positives end. The operating system is clunky and slow. Full of bugs. Wifi drops out a lot. The app selection is utterly awful. To be honest I wouldn't even pay 75 quid.
Summary: ok the playbook delivery from the seller was fantastic within 2 days very well packaged on opening and viewing i was really surprised how well built this is i charged and did the update cool works great the only problem was that for some reason these do have a problem connecting through the USB specially with windows 7 but that did not bother me as i dont like bb software on my pc and i only wanted it for web email and so HOWEVER if you do want it for music and films the...
I though it will be as good as other RIM products which I use - Never again

Summary: I bought BB Playboook cause it can integrate with my BB phone directly so no need to worry about security and other stuff. It was cheap - GBP 109 - so deal looks very good and promising. But when it arrived the promised land disappeared in the mist - the battery was faulty so the unit was loosing power suddenly and unexpectedly - even when battery indicator was showing 94% full (!). And so I ask for replacement.
Summary: For the money, a Blackberry gives you a well made tablet with up to 64 GB of memory, true multitasking and a great screen. However, the app store is shockingly limited and side loading Android apps, leaves them very buggy. There is no native Skype app, and side loading an Android version didn't work for me. Sharing files over a cable with a PC is very hit and miss, and so the large capacity looses its usefulness.
Summary: I had an iPod mini, was seduced by the flash on the playbook. I was a fool, it's incredibly slow to boot up, has only a handful of apps, most of them overpriced, and takes ages to load any website. My daughter's kindle fire is faster! After a frustrating evening with this pretty piece of cr@p, I am returning it. This is my first amazon return, fingers crossed I can put this expensive mistake behind me without too much hassle.
Summary: I already have an iPad which is the best Tablet out there but it's only 16gb which is restrictive when storing videos and music. There are many tablets out there but reading the reviews I was put off by the negative comments. When I saw the PlayBook at this price with 64gb of storage I couldn't quite believe my eyes. Most of the comments were very positive and with Blackberry name behind it, I had to have one.
Summary: I have had a Blackberry Playbook before, and this product was advertised as brand new, it was faulty as the screen was ghosting and the previous pages were showing through, I also tried to register it with Blackberry and I was informed it was not new. Don't get me wrong I love the Blackberry Playbook, but this was not as advertised, the product was returned with a full refund.
