3 out of 5 eggs2010 Tech

Pros: Best audio still, even compared to my "2012" Nexus 10 also blew away my "2012" Nexus 7 in this regard. I bought this as a remote for my 42" Vizio HDTV as a companion as the IR remote capability is amazing and is the strongest feature. microSD capabilty. Weight is nice as it sits in it's leather case in portrait mode.

Cons: Charging port has/is an issue that it is the weakest point that it will fail. I will be repairing mine. As per the title, this is 2010 tech, so do not expect this device to take place of any newer released tablets.

Other Thoughts: Some complain about the weight, but I do not classify this as a "portable" as more of a "home" device.
Most pay attention to the price than the spec's, then complain. This device runs "Honeycomb" Android, thus is ancient in this aspect. Not a bad for a first time device for Vizio. Downside is that most companies will not have update their devices Android versions though they will have a Update feature to do so. As that 4.4 Kit Kat supports limited hardware specs like this device.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your money on this

Pros: Plays downloaded movies well. Speakers are good.

Cons: This tablet is incredibly slow if it works at all. Trying to open apps takes forever and I have to attempt it multiple times. It'll just come up with a blank screen and then ask me to wait or force close. Connecting to the internet is just not worth it. I just spent 15 minutes trying to connect to a page (definitely the tablet because everything else on the wifi is fine).

Other Thoughts: If you just want a portable player it's ok if you download the files somewhere else. You want the full experience of a tablet then don't bother with this. Spend the extra 50 bucks for a better one.

2 out of 5 eggsNot good enough

Pros: Inexpensive.

Cons: Sluggish! Heavy. Freezes.

Other Thoughts: So sluggish that I can't tolerate it and am going to try to return it and get a refund. Really ridiculously unusable. They must vary though. The first one I got was refurbished and was ok, really fine for the price, but the plug for the power cord stopped working. So, replaced with a new (not refurbished) one and - it's so slow it's hard to use! Ugh.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat item while it works

Pros: Excellent application availability and great fetures on the device. Battery live was so-so depending on how much the display and radios were turned on. Excellent multi-touch responsiveness. (A screen protector significantly reduced the touch capabilities and had to be removed.)

Cons: The only real con I have is Vizio's warranty/customer support. My tablet quit charging after a time making it useful only as a paerweight. Vizio's request, albeit odd, was to send pictures of the device and how they were going to determine why it wouldn't charge from that is a little vague. Regardless, I was not told of any time restrictions and since it took me a while to get pictures and send them, that time had expired, so no warranty. Another fine case for zero eggs.

Other Thoughts: I did hear of other problems with charging and a friend who purchased a Vizio tablet encountered it within a month or two and didn't have any issues returning it, but for some reason, my tablet worked almost to the end of its warranty... good in most cases, but bad for me this time.

At least it will make for an interesting display when the kids dismantle it.

5 out of 5 eggsA fix for charging port.

Pros: I bought 2 refurbished vtabs. I noticed that micro USB cable was not sitting properly in the tab port (the metal connector was not going in all the way and was moving from side to side too much). I read a lot of reviews about bad charging port and was worried that I would end up in same situation. What I did to avoid this issue was - I bought a half inch hard plastic washer at home depot, sliced about 2 millimeter piece from it and cut it in half. Cut it so that it would sit around the top part of metal connector (top part meaning - facing same way as the screen) and glued it to the plastic part of the connector (be careful so the glue does not leak inside the connector and wait until it fully dries up). This way I made the metal connector shorter so it would sit snuggly against the tab and also made the plastic part of it wider to prevent the connector from moving too much from side to side. I have the tabs for a year now without problems. Vizio could have added tons more happy customers if they made this minor adjustment to the USB cable. By-the-way - the tabs are of great quality otherwise and I definitely recommend them to all who don't want to spend too much money and still want to get a very good quality tab.

Cons: I feel that Vizio should have shown more action in resolving charging port problem. It appears that minor re-design of USB cable could have made a big difference for alot of frustrated users.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked for a while

Pros: Cheap, worked OK for a while.

Cons: Died about 8 months after I bought it. It would continually cycle through the start up phase.

It is not supported by Visio any longer, so no fix available.

Other Thoughts: It worked fine, but it was slow and (as others have noted) would time out while playing videos occasionally.

My recommendation: not worth the money for somebody who wants a tablet to do serious work. Might be a nice toy for the kids, as long as you don't mind their cries of dismay once it ceases to function. If you have limited funds, there are much better tablets out there for a comparable price.
