Summary: I bought this for my wife as a birthday gift when she couldn't decide between a Kindle or a Nook. My thought was to get her a tablet with support for both Kindle and Nook apps. She hasn't put it down since, but the battery seems to discharge rather quickly and doesn't always run too smoothly. I'm surprised that Viewsonic never released a more refined version of the Android build installed on this tablet.
Summary: If you are looking for a budget tablet, this is a VERY good buy for your money, especially under $200. As a long time PC tech, I tend to have fairly high expectations of what I buy in any price range, but I also know that limitations come with cheaper priced products. Relating to the device locking up or slowing way down, yes I have experienced that too, BUT that tends to come from problematic or poorly written apps, not the device itself.
Summary: I bought this to replace the Viewbook 730 that I had broken and am pleased at the added features. I am able to sync with my work e-mail, surf the internet, and read free library books with e-reader options (currently using Kindle app). I have tried video and photos and it all seems smooth. It's been hard to find a case that fits due to the unusual dimensions compared to other tablets. I also struggle with the swype and autocorrect features.
Summary: This product was bought as a X-Mas gift for my 10yr. old. Before purchasing I read the reviews (most likely as you are doing now) and for the most part, most were good. I took the chance and bought it anyways. After about 2 days my daughter informed me that the tablet wasn't turning on. Now, I had read one of the negative reviews that had that issue and it was over the holiday, so no one was available.
nice product but exchange for defective product too slow

Summary: I got this tablet for my 8 year old daughter for christmas..... She loved it, but there was a spot on the lens of the camera - no big deal - amazon said they will give us a replacement. Unfortunately they told me that it will take about 5 weeks for delivery of the replacement unit. Sorry, that is not really acceptable - Now my 8 year old is stuck with a tablet that will be replaced in about a month.
Summary: This tablet is excellent for anyone that wants to get a good tablet that has very few flaws. My son loves it and it is one of the better bargain tablets. I am very pleased with this and my son has not stopped using it since he opened it. Great tablet for price and options. Some freezes, but nothing major and always fixes itself. Runs apps flawlessly and the screen works well and has a good but not great picture.
Summary: First off, if you want a sleeve that fits, search Amazon for <rooCASE Super Bubble Neoprene Sleeve Case Cover Compatible with Amazon Kindle Fire 7-Inch Tablet / Amazon Kindle Touch 3G / Amazon Kindle 3>. Do not mind that it says it is for the Kindle fire that is a different size than the Viewpad 7e. It fits when several others do not (others say they are for the Viewpad 7e when they are actually for the Kindle). Go figure Amazon. ========= Onto the Viewpad 7e.
Summary: Ok, first of all, I knew before purchasing this tablet that it was a budget tablet and could not be compared with the higher end tablets. I do have an HP Touchpad for personal use and an iPad II for work. I also purchased a Coby Kyros MID7012 for my 8 year old a few months ago, so I realize what budget refers to. The first thing that I noticed when I opened the box and pulled out the Viewpad 7e was the weight. It was thicker and heavier than I had expected.
Great Little Tablet If You Can Find It For Under $199

Summary: If you are looking for this tablet, it means that you are looking for something in the $200 price range. As some of you already know it, the Kindle Fire costs only $199 with IPS capacitive screen, duo core and 8GB. So if you can get this tablet under $200, you get a pretty good deal if you want something decent with a front camera for video call. Otherwise, the other good bet is MID 7022 which has a capacitive screen.
Summary: Very fast web browsing. Much better than Kindle Fire. Has real Amazon Kindle Ap. You can't beat it for the price.Don't order The ViewSonic ViewPad 7, 7 Inch Android Tablet Folio Leather Case - Black , it is junk and doesn't fit.
