2 out of 5 eggsmemory not functioning

Pros: Responsive device. Nice screen

Cons: 1G ram is OK. Nand flash is only 1.39G not 4G as called out. No programs can install to the nand flash. This basically leaves the tablet as a 1G tablet. Useless. Something tells me this is why the unit originally went back to the manufacturer.

Other Thoughts: I am returning the tablet. If not for this problem I would be OK with the tablet.

4 out of 5 eggsCompletely worth $25

Pros: -Price; for $25 after rebate, it's unbeatable
-Pretty much does everything except high-end gaming
-Fast, nice bright screen, small & light
-No issues with wifi or any other features

Cons: -Single speaker has poor audio quality

Other Thoughts: It's better than an iPad 1, but not even close to an iPad 2 or higher. I hope it lasts a while.

4 out of 5 eggsGot my moneys worth

Pros: Clear screen
Fairly smooth operation
Great features for the money
Good Wifi reception

Cons: Touch screen response could be a little better

Other Thoughts: For being refurbished I was skeptical. It was dropped by the previous owner, so there is a ding on one corner. But I can definitely live with it for the price. I've only had it for 1 day but very impressed so far.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent cheap tablet

Pros: Price, access to Google Play Store, battery life is respectable

Cons: Touchscreen sensitivity, running Android 4.1 (Not most recent version). Screen resolution is acceptable but not great, processor speed is decent.

Other Thoughts: This is a cheap, low quality tablet. It's perfect for the kids or use in the garage or other area where it is likely to be damaged. I wouldn't purchase this as a primary device, but it does work, although a bit sluggish, the screen resolution is acceptable and the touchscreen could be more responsive. For the price, it's a good value but not a great tablet. The refurbished model I received was like new. I am happy with it considering what I paid.

4 out of 5 eggsNot terrible

Pros: Price. Comes with Google Play. Speakers very good. Microphone is sensitive. HDMI out very nice feature for the price. Build quality is acceptable. SDHC expandability.

Cons: Screen is grainy, colors washed out, low-res. Oddly backlit screen that changes depending on how you tilt it from side to side. Smudges and fingerprints collect fast. Ugly brown case color. Battery life only 4 hours or so. Occasional lag in touchscreen response. Slow memory and storage. Slow boot time. No GPS.

Other Thoughts: At the price I paid after rebate, this was a steal. Would suggest looking into the Pro version, the screen is much better. Ars Technica review of this is spot-on and worth reading, they compare it to a 1st gen Nexus 7. This makes a great 1st tablet, or one to just throw in the car for emergencies, or maybe for the bathroom. Cases are cheap and plentiful. Google speech recognition actually works great on this thing.

The whole refurb thing is apparently a roll of the dice, mine came up aces, there were no visible signs of wear or use. Also have had no problems with the WiFi performance or dropped connections or not turning off or any of that junk....so maybe I got a newer hardware revision. Mine was made in Sep. '13.

In this price range & with the rebate, I cannot see how you could do any better.

5 out of 5 eggstickled

Pros: Good shape, had to look real hard to tell it was refurbished. Other than some very very light scuffs on the back it seemed brand new.

After instant saving and mail in rebate I paid 24.99 on the doorstep.

Very peppy and plays games easily.

System was reset to factory and had very little bloatware, all of which could be uninstalled without rooting.

Nice responsive screen, plenty of power and really solid design.

WiFi is stable and range is as good as much more expensive tablets.

Hdmi

Cons: speaker is so-so, and there's only one so its mono, luckily there's a headphone jack.

Battery life is mediocre, I wouldn't say bad but not impressive.

Other Thoughts: very satisfied. I bought mine to mount on my garage wall along with a 19 inch monitor so I could watch how to videos while I did projects and also for streaming radio while I work.

5 out of 5 eggsLots of bang for my buck...

Pros: Price (final price after rebate was $25 - less than what some CASES for more expensive tablets cost)
Dual core CPU - makes this easily the best sub-$50 tablet you can find, probably anywhere.
4 core GPU - good enough for light 3D gaming and high def. video playback. It is the same GPU found in some of the ARM based Chromebooks like the Samsung.
HDMI - mini-HDMI out is a great feature since it allows you to turn it into a very quiet media center for streaming video.
SD card - microSDHC support. I am using a 16GB card although the 4GB onboard storage is quite sufficient for all of the essential apps and a bunch of games.
Front facing cam - many really cheap tablets lack even one camera, but if there was only one cam, I would prefer it to be on the front because it is much more versatile for video chatting.
USB support - it read my 750 GB external SATA hard drive. That could come in handy for HTPC uses.
Capacitative screen - multi touch support and very responsive. Works very well without a stylus.
Google Play store ready - many cheaper tablets that use Android lack the play store app because they aren't officially supported by Google.
Decent battery life - it gets pretty good battery life; you can expect 4 or 5 hours off a full charge. Although it isn't exactly iPad territory, it is excellent for what I paid for.
Also, I am using it as a wireless mouse/touchpad and keyboard for my PC. There is a cool little app called "valence" which allows you to connect to any PC that is on the same network the tablet is on and use it as an input device. You just need to set up a VNC on the PC you want to use. Because of the Sero 7's capacitative touch screen and ability to recognize multi-touch gestures, it acts exactly like a Macbook touchpad. It also has a full keyboard just like the one on any tablet application.

Cons: Gets hot when playing 3D games. I loaded a few games on it and one corner in the back gets super hot. I am guessing that is where the SOC is. It could have benefited from an aluminum back which acts as a heat sink like the iPad vs the plastic back that it has. It isn't extremely hot like a stove top but it is definitely above 100F. Missing some of the more standard features such as a 2nd camera or even a high resolution camera at all. Does not have blutooth so you can't use a typical tablet keyboard with it. Also lacks GPS so Google maps and Earth are not very accurate with your location. While some people might see these as deal breakers, I rarely use them. If I need any of them, I can use my phone which has a decent quality high def camera, GPS and bluetooth.

Other Thoughts: This is the third tablet I have bought from Newegg in the last month or so. The other 2 were also refurbished and heavily discounted - the Coby Kyros MID7012 7.0" and a Proscan PLT4311 4.3". I've also had an iPad 2 since around 2011 which is the standard with which I compare all other tablets I have with. The Coby was extremely cheap ($6 after rebate) so I wan't expecting much. It has a resistive touch screen which, if you are used to an iPad, is extremely frustrating. It basically requires a stylus because using your fingers is extremely inaccurate and it doesn't support multi-touch getures. It also lacks many features, only has 256 MB RAM, can't download apps larger than about 20MB and is very slow. The Proscan was $10 (rebate as well) and is very small at 4.3 inches; it is about the size of a typical smartphone but bulkier and with a much lower resolution. Neither device comes even close to the iPad 2 in any way. They would make good toys for a child and the Coby would make a good eReader. The Hisense Sero 7 LT is actually, in my opinion, about on par performance wise with the iPad 2 thanks largely in part to the snappy dual core CPU. But, it does lack many things the iPad has such as a larger screen and 2nd camera. Recently, the upgraded version of the Sero 7 LT went on sale on this site for $60 (again a rebate). It is very much like the LT but it has many improvements like a Tegra 3 Quad core CPU, a 2nd 5MP camera and the FF cam is 2MP. It also has 8GB onboard storage and a newer version of Android. I am planning on ordering one of those for my mother. I would definitely recommend these Hisense devices. I was a little skeptical about what kind of quality I was going to be getting for something that costs $25. But, I guess there is no better way to find out how well made something is than actually owning it. You can look at all the specs and read all the reviews but unless you can actually use it for a day or two it is hard to judge its quality. The first two tablets I bought for under $10 were exactly what I paid for. I'll probably never use either again now that I have this. In conclusion, if you are looking at this around the time I am posting it and you are trying to decide on a cheap tablet, I would say to go for the Sero 7 Pro instead of this. At the moment, they are only $20 apart and that extra $20 is well worth it. If they were normal prices, though, I would go with the LT. Even at its normal price of around $50 (for the refurbished one), it is still the best bang for your buck.
