1 out of 5 eggsTerrible. Save your money for something higher quality.

Pros: Nice screen at day or night for reading. Battery seems pretty good for a color tablet. That's all the positive I can honestly say.

Cons: Worst electronic device I've ever purchased in 25 years. Android software is very old & no new updates are available for it. 60% of the time it will not wake up after sleeping for more than an hour so a hard reset is required. The CPU is VERY slow to do anything more than read. Even turning pages it seems to be in slow motion. Touch screen is not accurate at all, even after calibrating numerous times.

Other Thoughts: Spend a little extra money. This is not a device to purchase for any need. Very disappointed and embarrassed since this was a gift. Requesting refund but heard no response in 5 days...

1 out of 5 eggsNice screen, otherwise terrible

Pros: Very nice screen, 16GB micro Sim crd capacity.

Cons: Terrible interface. You cannot find your books, the "library feature is awful. Also, was erroneously advertised at first as mobi compatible. Was told by the company that this was a "mistake"! And the version of Android is 1.5, so all the new programs will not work on this model.

Other Thoughts: It took forever to find a direct phone # to call Aluratek Customer Service, and then I was told that they "didn't think" this model took mobi format, even tho mine was delivered in a box that clearly stated mobi as a format. I bought it specifically so I could have mobi and epubs on the same reader!
