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: 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: 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.
Summary: Bought one of these as a gift and I couldn't resist checking it out.... so I just ordered a second one. Plays youtube videos and explores the web no problem. Screen works fine with a finger I haven't even tried the stylus. Wifi is great speed test more or less matches my laptop on speedtest.net all in all for the price you really cant beat it.
Summary: So Got my Ziio yesterday! Since then have installed a ton of apps I dont think anyone has mentioned this yet but the newest firmware has amazon apps store ziio app store and you can actually find alot of apps online. If you cant get your movies to play grab Rock Player app it works great.
Summary: I've had my Ziio 7 for at least 5 months now and its great. Its fast, touch screen is very responsive, most of my apps work flawlessly and the sound is awesome. It came running 2.2 android. I totally enjoy reading my comics on it (comixology, mobi comic & PVC). My baby loves to watch her brainpop streaming videos on it. My eldest plays games on it more so than on her ipad. The text is a little washed out while reading, but that's ok as i only do so at nights.
Summary: At the time of writing I have owned my Ziio for 4 months. So far it has behaved well. Pros I really like the micro SD card. I carry 4 different cards with me and swap them depending on if i want to watch a movie or let my kids watch their stuff. I notice that the kindle fire does not have SD cards but relys on the cloud. The latest firmware finally fixed my biggest bugbear and has added a contacts app.
