Summary: I was excited to get this so I could do things like read my emails and surf the Web and watch video on a screen larger than my smart phone. My husband " hogs" our laptop playing casino games all the time (I know, at least he's not at the casino) so I seldom get the laptop to myself. and its not in the budget to buy another one. This thing works okay. It has a nice display. It has a 3-D sort of interface that I haven't explored yet.
Summary: I am underwhelmed and moderately disappointed with the Viewpad7. It is constantly in need of charging, it freezes frequently, the speakers are not loud enough and for some reason it ceased to check or connect to the FW update server. Meh...not recommending this product to my friends. The real bonus is Amazon Kindle. I love it. Might invest in the Kindle Fire.
Summary: I got the tablet a few days ago. But before I delve into my experience, please be advised, this is NOT intel Atom. The processor is Arm A8. See [...] for accurate product specification. Now about the tablet. I needed something I could give to my mother for video chatting with me. I'm happy to say this tablet handles Skype decently, and unlike kindle fire, has two cameras for enabling video chat.
Summary: I received the Viewsonic Viewpad 7e for a Christmas gift. I am so appreciative of it and glad I have it, but the last week has been very frustrating. I'll give you some bad points and end on some good points. Bad: 1. It does not have Android Market. I love my Droid phone and have come to love the Android Market. It has so many apps I've never even seen them all. There's an app for everything from hypnosis to calorie counting. Not so on the viewpad 7e.
EDIT (due to problems) formally - nice as both a Book Reader, and ...

Summary: Edit: Sadly, as some others have reported, my Viewpad 7e also showed issues when reading microSDHC cards. In my case, only 2 of 4 cards that I own would even read. One of these cards was brand new, and all of them work fine in other devices. Of the 2 cards that my Viewpad could read, one would un-mount itself and become unreadable within minutes, and the other would work fine for several hours, but randomly either un-mount or corrupt files.

Summary: This is an overall great tablet for web surfng,,Kindle reading ,YouTube ,and Amazon apps....The touch screen is multi resistive but responds as good as a capacitive touch...(lightly touching) OK...The problem as of this date (11/23/11) is the 3 D home Launcher screen at startup(BUGGY)...After a couple weeks 95% of the time, 3 D fails to launch and I'm left with a black screen and a retry force close button.
Superior tablet for a low price - but their tech support people are morons

Summary: It's a nice piece of hardware with excellent sound and graphics. It's very sturdy. I recently found out that there is a way to install the Android Market and that was the only thing that was missing. Thank you, Dr. Chuck Yuen. Edit: I dropped my review down because it won't play wma files and their tech support people are morons. If you need to reset the Viewpad because it locked up, then simply press the power key and the home key together.
Excerpt: pour le prix on en a pour son argent. rien à voir avec un Ipad... assez rapide en navigation sur internet par contre ne fait pas tout ( pdf difficile à lire) etc.. principal défaut le redémarrage n' est pas garanti : il faut faire une manoeuvre de reset. pas évidente j' ai eu la solution en contactant Viewsonic qui m' a bien renseigné via Internet. ce problème est très connu...
