Decent Tablet 11/28/2013
Its inexpensive, it runs well with the apps that I've downloaded.
The screen is surprisingly bright and vivid
I've streamed from a few sources and tested the distance I can go from my wireless and its about the same distance I have on my Samsung S3.
Games and video play just fine, I'm using it also for work to take notes and sketches in meetings with a keyboard I got for it.
Its a little slow to boot up. From power on to the screen where I can enter my security code is about 90 seconds.
The manual only covers very basic functions. My tablet froze after three days, and there was no reference to a "master reset" its the small hole on the back of the tablet, you have to hold it down for 10 secs to reboot it. This is not in any of their literature.
The literature does not talk about memory management either. I had d/l'd about 9 apps, and on the 10th I was alerted that I did not have enough memory. You have to go in the settings/storage/aps and choose "move them to SD", you cannot do this to all apps to free up memory. It does not appear that it is possible to store any apps on the external card.
I sent a question in via NewEgg to the seller and it took 3 days for them to respond, and that response was to call customer support. I called Customer Support on a Wednesday, mid morning and remained on hold for 20 minutes before I could speak to a rep, who was a little condescending about why I had not done the factory reset on it... you know the one that's not on the literature. So the egg I'm knocking off is due to customer support from the seller and the enclosed documentation.
This is advertised as having 4Gb. From the settings/storage screen it shows, 0.98GB for the Internal Storage, it shows 1.64 GB for NAND Flash.
I have an 8GB mem card inserted but I'm not sure yet how I can store media on it to access. It would be nice to store my ebooks and audio books on it.
I bought this through NewEgg while on sale for $56, so as long as I get a years use out of it I'll feel like I came out ahead, but but except for use with minor media sized files I'll still rely on my laptop.
