Summary: My 6yr old got this for Christmas this year. He loves it I'm not as impressed. I like the fact it's a great e-reader but it can't do movies since it doesn't have the capabilities. It also cant run app's on Google play. That's my biggest problem. I already know I will be replacing this tablet before his birthday since the app market available on the tablet is horrible.
Summary: I use my Tablet 2 or 3 times per week. Otherwise, I use my smart phone, Laptop, PC or Vizio tablet. The Cruz Tablet works ok after you install 2.2 (if it isn't already installed) but still does not allow you to download any applications that use Flash. I have worked around some of this by downloading apps off my laptop to my SD Card and then transfering them to the tablet. But, I've found it impossible to do this with Flash in the same way.
Summary: Mine didn't come with the SD card. I picked apart each box and bag and didnt see it. I have to have it to update the OS and install apps my daughter was upset that i have to and get a SD card and wait till i can get it.
Summary: My Cruz seems a little eccentric--but this is my first tablet--first touch screen device--so there's been a steep learning curve. We seem to be getting used to each other. Am enjoying it as an e-reader (am happy to trade e-ink for the back lighting, which is useful in dimmer cafes and dark bus stops), and the gallery display is useful to me in my drawing. Drawbacks: the Cruz doesn't give you access to the Android Market.
Summary: ok, i have had this tablet for about 3 weeks. I bought it for my 5 year old ( my wife wanted to get her an ipad) in hind sight i would say i should have gone with the ipad. this tablet is "ok". It is good as an e-reader though the page turns can be a bit frustrating at times. its games selection is a joke ANGRY BIRDS WILL NOT WORK. and the one they are selling here has android 2.0 wich you will have to update right out of the box to android 2.2.
Summary: First off, the product description at [...] lists a T301 with 4 GB internal flash and a 4 GB SD card inside the box. What I received was a T301 with 2 GB internal flash and no SD card. Suffice it to say that I did not get what was advertised. The vendor, Worldwide Distributors, sent a 4 GB SD card later but would not upgrade to the 4 GB model. They offered a refund but I decided to keep what I got and avoid a trip to the post office and more wasted time.
Could be better, but for the price very good for the cost

Summary: For $160 really and amazing device but it should ship with a paper clip (necessary to reset) which in heavy non Ebook uses (as I do 95% tablet use and multi tasking... multi DL and Apps) you likely might have to do every few days. And if you do just don't click it.... hold it in reset at least 10 sec. (makes a difference) Over all very pleased for cost. Compared to the cheaper Reader version... much better and more sensitive/accurate touch screen.
Summary: I reeived my CRUZ T301 on 1 Feb 2011. I was most interested in it as an ereader with some computing capability. Pros: As an ereader, it is great. I was able to call up all of the books that I had previously purchased and loaded on a Kindle. I was also able to download the Borders Kobo app and access books on their site. Good battery life too. I found that the browser was functional but not overwhelming. I could sign on to my webmail account and view emails of interest.
Summary: For the price - love it! Not as user friendly as I had hoped. Has a learning curve. Still trying to learn how to download apps. Screen magnification not as easy to use as some other products. However, I added a 16G SD card so now have a tablet with 20G for less than $300. Awesome!
Summary: The Cruz Tablet is okay for the price. It's certainly not an IPad but books load quickly and easily although I have not figured out how to organize them or delete them yet. The page turn is a little jerky and it sometimes changes from vertical page display to horizontal display on its own. It is slow when you are online but for half the price of more expensive tablets, it does as well as you would expect.
