Pros: Interesting format for an android device. Android shows lots of potential on this large of a screen and something like google maps or shopping/browsing would be great on this large touchscreen. I thought it would make a great wallmount computer for the kitchen.
Cons: Terribly slow and choppy. I'm shocked that it is this bad with 1+GHz and 1GB. I'm guessing it is overtaxed with rendering the screen, but the cortex CPU only seems to appear in low-end android devices, so using it here is just bad design.
Other Thoughts: Wish it had a tegra or something that could handle this much graphics output. It could even be a bit smaller and more expensive given the pricing on 10in tablets. As it is, I can't imagine anybody being patient enough to use this (I once had a linux desktop with 256MB ram and 300MHz pentium III with a 21in CRT that was snappier than this, but that had a real (if only 8MB) graphics card.)

Love it, wish it were Jelly Bean
Pros: HDMI input, great color and brightness (overall great screen), great viewing angle, very well designed wireless keyboard even if you don't need it. Strong wifi reception. Thin! 1/3 the thickness of my less-smart Acer PC monitors. Can be rooted if you're into that.
Cons: A bit sluggish in UI, ICS instead of JB - that's why one star knocked off. Two point multi-touch instead of 5 or 10. Doesn't have a traditional monitor stand. Kind of heavy compared to a regular monitor due to the touch screen glass.
Other Thoughts: Don't think of it as a big tablet, think of it as a smart display you hang on the wall or set on the kitchen counter. There are so many things you can do with this - media client, wall mounted digital picture frame, uPNP renderer, mirror, streaming video such as Netflix, game system, home personal fitness system, home automation, video conferencing, and more. It just takes some imagination! This works great in tight places where you don't need a full PC but want to consume Internet or media. You don't have to use the keyboard and mouse either. I'm wall-mounting mine.
