Summary: I have owned this tablet for about three months. Firstly, the OS must be upgraded to the latest Android system, that is why some complaints are that the system "reboots". It is simply performing/applying the updates. Mine needed about 5 before it was up to date. Nothing unusual. After that it works fine. The GPS is a very nice feature, but hardly mentioned in reviews.
Summary: I bought the K1 on Amazon in November 2011 for $300. I was looking for an alternative to the iPad and to the expensive Androids. I've read the "bad" reviews on Amazon and I have not experience any of the really awful experiences reported by some (lockups, bad battery, etc). It's true that the built in speakers are not very powerful, so I use either headphones or an external speaker system (via the headphone jack).
Summary: Have had some issues with the GPS lock on with navigator. GPS test program I downloaded detects 4 - 7 Sats, yet I can't get a lock? After upgrading some android apps I lost the full versions, had to do a system wipe. Most past issues besides the above for me have been addressed with the adroid 3.2.1 upgrade. Still hope that further upgrades can fix remaining issues. All in all good tablet for overstock price but wouldn't pay msrp.
Summary: This was purchased for myself as a Christmas present for me, so I'm naturally a bit subjective about this review. I had had a color nook, rooted with android, and it was, pretty good. I knew I wanted a 10" screen and I wanted a better android os, but the prices for anything that met my standards were just too high. UNTIL Amazon offered this for $299 shipped. Well, I love it.
Summary: Had been looking for a reasonably priced tablet when I saw this one on black Friday. It's seems to be well built and has lots of apps preloaded, but I still have much to learn on using it. One weak point seems to be its WiFi which can't pick up my wireless signal from the other end of the house.
Summary: This was my first tablet purchase. Overall, after updating the operating system a few times, the unit is very stable. The screen is beautiful and it is responsive to touch. I plan on using it to display internet movies/TV show on my TV via the microHDMI port. The only real issue I have encountered is its wireless reception. We have laptops, ipod touches, Kindles and don't have issues related to wireless reception in our house.
Summary: My wife and I decided to get tablets this year, so after much research and watching for deals, I purchased the Lenovo K1 tablet on Black Friday online from Amazon via Circuit City. I also really liked the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, which I purchased on Cyber Monday. Now comes the dilemma, which tablet do I keep for myself! Well after reading the reviews for the Lenovo, I wasn't even sure I had made a wise decision in purchasing it in the first place.
Great product - some issues though - 4.5 stars IMHO

Summary: First a confession - I bought this product from Costco.com since it was $50 cheaper than at Amazon that week. Otherwise, I would have bought the same item from Amazon. Now onto the review part - 1. Great piece of hardware - fast, sleek and very handy. Looks great too - although I put on a leather cover (MoKo(TM) Folding Cover Case With Stand For Lenovo IdeaPad K1 10.1-Inch Android Tablet). So, looks are not that important for me. 2.
