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.
Summary: Seems ok, fast trouble free delivery and after more thna 4 weeks of use the playbook works well. However, just be aware to the limitted availability of apps for this tablet, this is a frustration to the user.
Summary: My wife has one of these already, and my sister loved it, so we decided to buy my sister her own for Christmas. It's a great product for browsing the internet, playing games, and social networking with friends. Anyone looking for a good Tablet, I would thoroughly recommend this product. You won't be disappointed.
Ignore the badge lickers = buy the best value tablet available!

Summary: Mine arrived as a B grade refurbished, from Benthams other store Morgan Computers. It was in the box with a new unused magnetic charger and a new usb lead. It had obviously been kept in a case as the only marks on it were on the corners. I soon dealt with the tiny marks with a dab or two from my black indelible marker pen, it's now A grade.
Summary: It's hard to know what to make of this tablet. It seems well made and when you can get it to connect to the internet, there are some nice features. The problem is that the software does not allow stable connectivity. Sometimes it connects and sometimes it just says "couldn't resolve the host name". It's a bit like "unidentified item in the baggage area" and requires you to call for assistance as much.
Summary: I honestly could not believe my eyes when this tablet arrived, firstly it arrived within less than 48 hours which was great because Amazon estimated it would arrive in 4 days but what amazed me was the quality. For the price I was buying this and since it's refurbished I was expecting to get a second hand product without any cables but instead when I opened the parcel there was an official Blackberry Playbook box which I opened to find my playbook in prestine quality as...
