4 out of 5 eggsGood for reading eBooks and PDFs.

Pros: Light-weight, large 4:3, 9.7" color screen (same size as iPad) for reading PDF manuals and ebooks. Comes with good selection of basic apps (email, browser, file manager, camera). Cheaper than a dedicated eReader, more flexible. Who cares about Google play. Just download any version 4.0 compatible app onto the external SDHC card and install it. Wifi is a nice bonus for email or for quick web browsing.

Cons: Need to install Adobe Reader Mobile for reading PDFs.
Must use provided USB "pigtail" adapter for reading flash drives, not a standard USB cable. Standard USB cable is for reading the tablet as a big flash drive.

Other Thoughts: Battery lasts about 10 hours if you turn off the WiFi. Plays music, views photos, strong enough to run Office-compatible apps (Excel, Word, Powerpoint).

4 out of 5 eggsCoby MID9742 -8

Pros: Good tablet. It performs as expected. Navigation is good. I like the "BACK" button. It is helpful. GET JAR is a very powerful application.

Cons: Not able to load "FLASH PLAYER". Contacted manufacturer on phone. He also did not help.

Other Thoughts: Overall I am satisfied.

2 out of 5 eggsRMA-ed

Pros: Decent screen and speakers. good for movies and music, and a few non google apps.

Cons: no google play or working flash, have to root it if you want anything google, speed was not terrible and most apps ran well-ish. but web browsing was painfully slow. tried to like it, but ended up RMA-ing it in the end.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat Looking, Horrible Fuction

Pros: Looks great, Light weight, comfortable in your hands, Screen is pretty good,

Cons: It was horrible! Touch screen was so slow to respond. had to double/tripple touch everything. If you changed the font size to small, all of the text tweaked and twitched. NO GOOGLE PLAY STORE! I tried a million ways to find a work around. Could'nt get anyting to work. It came with something called Get-jar, Was a GetJoke! For $200.00 I was exspectiong more, but got a lot less.
I really wanted this to work out too. I RMA'd it the next day. I'm sorry Coby, better luck next time.
