Summary: I purchased this product about a year ago, have been frustrated ever since. The tap software that comes with it is horrible and inadequate. Today I tried to watch a video from a website that I subscribe to and it would not work. Tried to upload googleplay app not compatible. Five hours later I gave up, which is the usual.
Summary: We bought the tablet when it first came out. In less than a year it was sent back to viewsonic for repair as it would not boot. Less than a year later the same problem. No longer under warranty and we were quoted a repair price of $99-$299 by viewsonic. Our computer repairman thought it needed a new motherboard and tried several times to contact viewsonic's technical service to no avail as they would not email or call back.
Summary: I bought this product from another site at a decent price not to long after it first came out. However, it hasn't worked right at all. Even after I got it up and running, it only worked for a month after I installed all of the "fixes". This is a terrible product and I hope no one wastes their money on it.
Summary: Bought one of these over a year ago now. Saw that is was very hackable, which was an appeal at the time. It wasn't worth it. I commend the community for putting out many decent ROMs. All were good for most things, but always lacked something. Forget the camera forever. This is not the programmers fault. No support from Viewsonic, the source of the misery. Viewsonic support is awful along with nVidia not releasing the drivers to the programmers to make this a great tab.
Summary: I bought my tablet 9 months ago. The pin where you connect wall charger plug to tablet is already broke or loose from circuit board and unit will not charge. I tested the charger and I know it is not the problem. HandandGo does not have many applications, my son has iPad which is far superior to my unit. I rather pay the price difference instead of trying all kind of fixes to try to make this piece of what(!) to function like an iPad.
Summary: The screen on this alone makes this product suck, do not recommend at all. An ipad 2 or samsung galaxy 10 inch is better. this is an uneven piece of garbage that just needs to be trashed seriously do not buy the screen will disappoint, not to mention crappy software.
Summary: I originally purchased one of these just under a year ago thinking i was getting the cream of the crop with a lot of support from the dev community as well as viewsonic. Starting with the horrible screen viewing angles to the atrocious Tap-n-Tap UI this thing is nothing short of abysmal. Luckily I'm able to flash roms on it and now that the community has done what viewsonic said wouldn't happen I'm not very concerned.
Summary: Got mine liked it didn't use it all that much, maybe once a week for email. Screen res no where near iPad and. Keeping angle a bit finicky but ok for the $. Now the power button has broken and Device will not turn on or turns on intermittently. Pretty crappy as viewsonic advertises a 1 yr warranty but there is no way to contAct them other than email and they have not responded at all to my 12 requests for an RMA service under the warrantee.
