Summary: I would not recommend purchasing this. The connector for the battery cord broke and HP does not respond to my inquiries about fixing it. I have seen that others have had the same problem and since you can't purchase the part, you have to pay $150 to get it fixed.
Excerpt: I rated this one star as you can't rate it garbage.I ordered this as a surprise and of course because of that, shipping was delayed. It came packaged well, but, that's about the only positve thing I can say about it.While it was a refurbished unit, I've ordered and have had no issues in the past.
Summary: Having been through several tablets in a single year, I purchased this tablet, hoping to end the trend of bad luck. Initially, everything worked great. Connecting to T-Mobile and establishing a connection to the Internet seemed simple.
Summary: Camera quality sucks and sometimes the back camera is really dark, the microphone sometimes just buzzes, and it disconnects from the WiFi at least once a day. I have to restart it every day and the restart takes 5 minutes.
for all of the bad reviews. This has happened to may many people

Summary: I bought one for christmas for my son. It was genty used and charged but the charging port broke after 3 months. Hp knows this is a weakness in all of their slate tablets. Search on the internet. for all of the bad reviews. This has happened to may many people.
Summary: the charging port is weak in all the slate 7 tablets it goes bad with gentle use and costs 55 usd to fix it hp knows aboutit and still charges an arm and a leg to replace. stay away fro these tablets
Summary: This was the most DISAPPOINTING electronic purchase I have ever made! In less than a year's time, it was returned to the manufacturer 3 times....always for the same problem...once they replaced it with a "refurbished" tablet.
Summary: This uses a micro usb charging port. It's ridiculous, that should be reserved for phones only. Two times it has stopped charging and HP was nice enough to take it back. They sent me a refurbished one when the first one quit charging and gave me a 3 month warranty for the second one.
Summary: This is an obsolete device, slow with poor build quality. I accidentally did a 1" scratch on the front glass which developed into an full top-to-bottom crack in two days(!). HP support refused to replace the digitiser.
