Summary: well, if you were looking for a great screen and moderate functionality, this is your Tablet! Thru the genius of contracts and corporate fee structures for name usage and copyrights, you will not see an up-date'able version of this product. It is a shame, as the screen is fantastic, the battery life is outstanding and it tough as a box of stray kittens--that's really tough, by the way.
Summary: What a great machine. True, it’s not a $300 tablet, but that’s the point, it’s not a $300 tablet. Pros: Great screen, incredible battery life, crisp HDMI, excellent sound. I don’t take my laptop with me when I travel, I now use my Ziio for everything. A 7” tablet is really the right size, because a 10” is too big and a cell phone is too small. Many of the cheaper tablets don’t have an SD card, but you get SD, bluetooth, Wifi and USB with the Ziio.
Summary: Great tablet for the price. The menu/navigation keys at the bottom of the tablet aren't backlit, so first use in the dark is a little difficult. Once you memorize the keys, it's no big deal. VERY IMPORTANT: This tablet is advertised and sold as an 8GB. Wrong! Mine is more like 4.something...
Summary: I love my Ziio, My kids love to play some of the educational games and I love reading on my Kindle app, but I had to recently reset my wireless Router and now I can't get my Ziio to hook up to my WIFI. Can anyone please help me. I have tried to contact the company's support but I have had no luck, so if someone out there can please, please, help me that would be fabulous!!!
Summary: So far I've been happy with it, learning the Android interface wasn't difficult and it's been easy to setup. I had a little issue getting the system to recognize the microSD card and load things to it, but other than that there's been no other issues. I did all of the updates on the Ziio website and everything went smoothly. I got a good deal on it and am happy.
Summary: Good tablet. Plays well with video and games. Only problem is that the four bottom buttons should have some kind of back light, it's very hard to see in the dark. Overall, nice. Many amazon apps work on here. The task manager gets annoying become some apps will not close.
Summary: I ordered this 8gb 7 inch Ziio about a month ago. I received it very fast from the seller and had no troubles. It worked great right away I installed a lot of different free apps from the ziio store and amazon app store included on the tablet. I then found a few others I wanted through the internet.
Summary: I was motivated to buy the ZiiO 8GB Android tablet because the price was much better than the more famous brands. Of course, there could have been a performance trade off there, but that hasn't happened. The graphics are excellent, and all features are convenient and effective. I would have liked a better User Guide, but the information can be found from other sources when necessary.
Summary: The good - at 10", it's easy for my wife to read, and it's easy for her to manipulate the screen. As an ereader it is easier for her to see the text than a 7" screen would, and for Angry Birds it's hilarious how well she can play it on this tablet over, say, her phone. The bad - I thought ALL Android products came with the Android Market. This does not - and it turns out, a lot of tablets don't.
Summary: It works, but the software locks up every now and then, requiring a hard-reboot. I don't know whether this is what happens with all Android OS devices, or whether this is a Ziio-hardware-specific thing. It does not support the Android Market - so you can't download apps from there. The Creative Ziio marketplace is missing things like Skype, or a good range of Office Apps, for example. You have to find these elsewhere on the internet.
