4 out of 5 eggsBest bang-for-the-buck

Pros: Excellent price for a near-10" screen (which is nice & bright). Two cameras, one of which is 2MP. Speakers are loud enough to hear even if someone is talking in the room. Handles high-def video (although it won't with VLC media player, probably because VLC fails to use its GPU chip well). Mine is a refurb, but I couldn't tell except for the price tag, no visible wear or software leftovers.

Cons: No Bluetooth. Processor and wi-fi are both a bit slow. Included apps are all ad-supported, and many require an account setup somewhere. Coby's customer support is simply not there; their website just displays their logo and that's all, no links, no downloads, not even a 'phone number. There are no custom rooted ROMs available for it; IF YOU FIND THE ROM FOR THE EARLIER VERSIONS DO NOT INSTALL IT! IT WILL BRICK THE TABLET! I have (so far) utterly failed to find a way to backup the ROM in it now, and as noted above, there is no help from Coby.

Other Thoughts: The MID9742-8 can be rooted with SRSRoot and a 32-bit Windows 7 PC, in fact it was rather easy and painless. Simply connecting the Coby to my 64-bit Win7 PC crashes the PC. Doesn't help with backing up the ROM, unfortunately, since ROM Manager won't run even though the device is rooted. The Android OS itself is obviously experiencing severe growing pains; it looks to be in about the same stage of development as Windows 98 first edition, with lots of bugs and very intrusive advertisements. Once I've managed a ROM backup I'm tempted to try a Linux distro ported for ARM (I think this is v7). The 2MP camera isn't bad, but it likes lots of even light and very little movement. My dog's tail is always blurred, and don't shake when touching the button. I don't really know about the webcam because I'm not interested in staring at my own ugly puss! I do sort of wish it had a full-size SD slot so that I could take the card out of a better camera and view the pics on this screen, it's really quite good
