5 out of 5 eggsPretty Cool Tablet

Pros: Works great fast and compatible with the market it has a bunch of cool little goodies on it and not bad a the price I bought it at when it was $20 dollars off normal price.

Watched a bunch of video's on it it's not bad.

The kid some how cracked it, but I had the 1 NB Day 1 Insurance and NewEgg & Servicenet helped me get my situation taken care of in less the 24 hours so I was really happy with the customer service everyone provided me.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: You might by the insurance, lol just in case you have a kid like me :-)

5 out of 5 eggsLove It!

Pros: Alot for the money.
1024x600 screen resolution.
Sensitive touch screen.
Tons of apps on Play Store.
Good File Manager.
Can add extra storage with micro sd card.
Full web browser experience.
Plays almost anything you throw at it (up to 720p) with a free video player form the Play Store.
Rock solid dependable performance.
Great for reading books in about any format.
Open boot loader so you can add other operating systems.

Cons: MTP protocol to connect to computer.
Need an OTG cable to connect usb drives.
More ram would be nice but it hasn't been an issue yet.

Other Thoughts: I have to use mtpfs on Debian Linux to connect to the computer via the included usb cable. It's inconvenient but workable.
However transferring files over the network is easy and intuitive with the included file manager (provided the computer your trying to talk to is set up properly). I use Samba (Windows style) networking on linux.
This my first tablet but I have had very good luck with Archos stuff (Archos 605 wifi) in the past so I decided to try this one.
My plans were to experiment with an alternate os on the tablet but I have found everything I need in the app store to do the things I want with it so far.

2 out of 5 eggsNeeds more power

Pros: - Decent battery life
- Nice screen
- Built in kickstand for media viewing
- HD video encoded in AVI format looks good
- 3D gaming is nice (Deadspace from App Store)

Cons: - Slow web interface (Took me roughly 2 minutes to type this sentence because I was waiting for the keyboard to catch up with my keystrokes)
- Most likely not getting ICS, not that it could run it.
- Chokes on HD video encoded in MKV or WMV.

Other Thoughts: It's not even a good entry level tablet. If you just want to read web pages and do some light gaming it's not bad. Also couldn't figure out how to transfer files over the network. I could see my other workstations on the network, but it kept asking for a Username & password.
