2 out of 5 eggsWell back in 2001......

Pros: Cheap, probably $10-$15 on sale. Turns on. Runs. Could be a decent slow e-reader.
Comes with a nice little felt bag. Charger, random odds and ends.
Doesn't break if you drop it. Unless it's higher than 8 feet. I think.

Cons: Well, back in the early 2000's this would have been considered amazing. Like, hold the phone, beep beep back the truck up amazing. It is 2014, close to 2015. If you want to step back in time, or need a very very small external hard drive, buy it. Slow as molasses, but I was curious about the product, impulse buy. Can barely run angry birds, which is laughable. Can't get google marketplace unless you root it, and I wouldn't even do that, because the time you take to root it, you might break it, or it would not be cost effective. UNLESS you plan on making it into a gameboy.

Other Thoughts: This is an e-reader. Only use it as such. Or mod it to be a gameboy or something. Just save your money, unless you want to please a bratty kid or something.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Will not work without being attached to the charger. Will not connect to wifi, without turning to a teckie for instructions to root. Not a good value at any price.

3 out of 5 eggsSlow little tablet

Pros: -Cheap (if you get your rebate)

Cons: -Slow
-Non Capacitive Touchscreen
-Not the greatest screen resolution

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this and expect an Ipad people. Its a low end tablet that will work for watching some youtube videos or listening to music. For 10 dollars its worth it, you can even use it as a digital picture frame.

My rebate was not processed and I ended up losing 15 dollars, making this tablet cost 25 which is more than i would like to have spent on it.

4 out of 5 eggsVery cheap

Pros: >Price after rebate: $6
>Works out of the box
>Easy enough to root and install Google Marketplace apk
>Comes with a stylus which is almost mandatory for it
>Reads micro SD cards and almost any type of external USB storage via the OTG cable that is also included.
>Wifi (b & g only, no n)
>Once you install marketplace and DL Opera mini, browsing the web is very fast.
>Does most of the things that typical tablets and smartphones can if they had no cameras, no bluetooth and extremely limited resources such as CPU power, RAM, NAND space, etc.
>Overall, it is the best sub-$10 ever. Maybe the only sub-$10 tablet ever - or at least in the North American market.

Cons: >No cameras
>Outdated version of Android which makes it very limited in what apps are compatible with it. Once you get Marketplace installed, though, you can install launcher "skins" which emulate Android 4.1's launcher and lock screen which does make it feel newer and easier to use.
>Lacks many other features which are standard on even the cheapest smartphones and tablets such as GPS, bluetooth, 802.11g, mini HDMI, etc.
>Very outdated hardware even for 2011 standards:
>Single core 800 MHz CPU
>256 MB DDR2 RAM
>4GB NAND; very little is usable, though, for apps
>2400mAH Li-Poly battery with only ~3 hours life
>Resistive touchscreen; no multi-touch
>Coby went out of business so:
>They no longer release updates for their tablets
>That 90-day warranty is useless
>Their support website is offline

Other Thoughts: This is an excellent buy if you caught the deal where it was $6 or so after a rebate. At the current price of $23 it is a complete waste of money. It might sound like a great deal at $23, but it isn't. Save at least $30 more and buy something with a minimum dual core CPU, Android 4.1 and capacitative touch screen. If it is $10 and you have some tech knowledge and a PC with a USB port, you can make this thing usable. Without at least installing the outdated Google Marketplace (now known as the Play store), this thing is barely usable at all. You could also root it and try to update Android, but it might struggle to run newer versions because of its single core CPU. Keeping it with 2.3 is probably best since it is functional as a very basic browser/reader as it is. The touchscreen is one of the reasons why it is so cheap. This is the same type found on devices like credit card machines in supermarkets and banks. They are more durable than capacitative screens which are found on 99.9% of all other smartphones and tablets because they can be made out of plastic instead of glass. They can also be used while wearing gloves but the drawbacks far outweigh the advantages especially when used in a consumer level tablet. Using your fingertip to operate it is very frustrating especially if you are used to something like an iPad (which I have; an iPad2). The stylus makes it a million times more responsive and accurate. Basically, the 4 stars I gave it were because of the price. If I had paid $23 for it, I would have given it maybe 2 stars. If I had paid the MSRP of $50, I would have given it the minimum 1 star (which would actually mean zero to me).

4 out of 5 eggsCheap refurb

Pros: Cheap - $10 after rebate. Nice, as even if I didn't like the tablet, it came with $10 worth of accessories (cover, USB OTG cable, power adapter, etc.)

Better than expected response time - I had really really low expectations. While there's some lag, it's not as bad as I thought. Page load times are OK, boot time isn't terrible.

MicroSD card slot


Cons: First time charging I thought it came with a faulty battery or charging circuit. After an hour or two of charging (it won't charge over USB for some reason), it would say 100% battery life, but the battery would drain in 5-10 minutes. However, after leaving it plugged in over night, it now seems to be working as intended

What can be gotten from other reviews:

Google Play needs to be installed separate

4GB of storage is just enough for Android itself, there's just over 200MB free storage stock

Resistive touch screen isn't as fine tuned as a capacitive screen, but works
