Summary: i bought this item for my son because he is hospital bound. he likes the pictures quality very much the only bad thing about it is the sd card does not stay in the slot, if you are not careful it pops out no matter how you try to make it click in, he has to use paper and tape to hold the card in place, also there is no feature to copy/paste/delete movies. it must be plugged into a desktop to remove files.
Summary: I have used Pandigital tablets and HP Touchpads. This one lies between the two leaning more towards the HP. It works very well like the HP but it looks and feels like the Pandigitals. The HP and Ipad are sleek, more square, light and a pleasure to hold and look at. The Pandigitals are clunky, heavy, sharp edges and toylike in appearance. The ViewSonic is more like this than HP or Ipad like.
Excerpt: I purchased this from Sears, and for the money this tablet is pretty nice. However there are a few flaws that keep it from being perfect. The first flaw is that the O/S out of the box is horrible. You really need to get the over the air update for it to even be considered usable. Doing that is difficult though since the wifi will drop out before it gets the update.
Viewsonic G Android Tablet is ok but still some flaws.

Excerpt: the Viewsonic G Android Tablet is okay but still has some flaws. The battery is fantastic as it's lasted me all night compared w/ my laptop which needs to be recharged after only a few hours. I love the android 2.2 operating system but setting this tablet up was no easy task. It literally took me quite a long time to set it up and I am not exactly pc illiterate! I can easily find my way around but this was rather difficult.
Excerpt: This device has the potential to be a Ipad killer. At a fraction of the price of an Ipad this device is faster and has the potential to utilize the full android market. This is bleeding edge technology and had a few bugs upon release. There have been a couple major updates to the software to fix many of the bugs though. This device has the potential to be around for a while and is a very good purchase IMO!
Summary: This is a good value for the price ($190 used). The G-tab must be rooted to get anything worthwhile out of it. I use it to read documents on the go and web browsing. The screen is responsive to touch, and viewing angles dont seem as bad as some reviews have stated. The only drawback is that I cannot get Flash media to play on the tablet. Other than that I really like this tablet.
A few changes to the rom and you can make this a dream tablet.

Summary: Very impressive hardware for the price. Works remarkably as far as speed. Was not impressed with the out-of-the-box OS. The included version of Android 2.2 Froyo is a modified version that is not your every day version of Android. If you are looking for something that works closely to the version of Android you'll find on a smartphone, you'll have to root this and flash a new rom such as CyanogenMod rom, etc.
If you are looking for a reasonably priced tablet this is it.

Summary: First thing is this is not an I Pad. It is a nice tablet but right of the box it has some problems but if you up grade the rom it is a great machine. Got this for my daughter for Christmas and it does everything she has asked it to do. She goes on internet, facebook, reads email, and plays games with no problems.
Excerpt: This was originally purchased for my husband to use, but he upgraded shortly after buying this one. He is more of a power user, using the tablet for work and personal. His job has him traveling a lot, so he needed it to be more like a laptop. This wasn't quite what he wanted. I, however, love this tablet! It works great for the basics- email, facebook, internet, games, kindle, netflix. I don't use it much for productivity, it's just for fun.
