Summary: I purchased this tablet for 40 bucks to entertain my destructive 14 month old boy. It does the trick. He now ignores my Galaxy Note 2 and goes for this POS tablet. Works ok for the price. A little slow.
Summary: overall opinion is...... crap. definately better tablets out there for about the same money. feels cheap, screen viewing angle too much an issue. screen sensitivity not sensitive enough. waaa waaa. whatever, gonna get another kindle.
Summary: Setting up Wifi was relatively simple, but the first two days after I received my tablet I couldn't set up email because it wouldn't connect to server. I emailed tech support from my PC, but never received a response. I frequently get a "Browser not responding" message that limits my activity. Cannot effectively browse the book store because the application always freezes and I have to hit the reset.
Summary: I was not happy with this tablet. The lack of Google Play was annoying, though Amazon's appstore was a reasonable workaround once installed. It's much, much slower than either of the two Android smartphones I've used, and the battery life is terrible. It appears to have a software problem which turns on the screen every few minutes even when just sitting. The built in storage is partitioned oddly, not allowing nearly enough for app space.
Excerpt: I bought this for my son for Christmas thinking it would be an affordable alternative to getting him an iPad (which I have). Boy was I wrong. First, it is not user friendly in any way. You can't get any apps to speak of. Which was my main reason for buying him the tablet. The touchscreen does not scroll well or respond as well as the iPad. When you turn it off, it has to be reset with a little button on the back to turn it back on.
Excerpt: The thing that everyone I know wants to get from the new tech goodies you read about is the famous tablet from Cupertino. Every other tablet device is measured against the one, and if the performance and design of the alternatives were even remotely akin to the top tablet, I think they would be a great buy. I don't want to pay an excessive price just for coolness. Unfortunately, the only thing this tablet really has going for it is a great price.
Not worth the money - though cheap, it does little to nothing

Excerpt: If you are looking for a replacemant for an ipad, this is NOT it. This tablet PC is very inexpensive and shows in its capability. Problem number one: the Android operating system on this tablet is not optimized for tablets, but for phones - wait until Android 3.0 Honeycomb comes out as it is made for tablets.
Summary: I wish I hadn't of bought this. It is difficult to use. Won't play U tube videos despite the fact that it has U tube app. Whenever using internet you are constantly shown a certificate warning. Very slow. I bought a kindle fire after I bought this. This is a waste of money if you ask me.
Summary: I read all the other reviews about it not being an iPad and it will work fine so I went ahead and ordered. Ugh. It has sat on my nightstand collecting dust. So slow it never seems to connect to the Internet and I can't seem to load any apps even when I did get them to successfully load to the device.
Summary: As the title says - don't expect too much. I was hoping to get something a little faster, a little better of a touch screen and a little easier to maneuver but no luck. The processer is a little slow and the touch screen is super sensitive at times and totally unresponsive at others. the included stylus is not much help. i guess it will be good enough for my 3 year old to play angry birds on. Good luck.
