2 out of 5 eggs Decent Tablet but Horrible WiFi 12/01/2013

This review is from: PROSCAN PLT8223G 8.0" Google Certified Touchscreen Tablet Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

Pros:

Screen is pretty good, although there are a couple of "smudges" in this one. Reasonably responsive for a single core CPU. Light weight and thin. You can probably use it to play games, but don't count on it too much if what you want to do involves much data usage. See cons.

Cons:

Like the PLT7223G, I'm afraid these things have horrid WiFi. If you get too far from your router, it will say it has signal but it really doesn't at all. Then if you get right up on the router, a speed test will improve but doing things with Chrome or the Play Store are still quite slow... really too bad. Same issue with one PLT8223G and two PLT7223G's.

Other Thoughts:

I'm kind of bummed that newegg sold me these when there's a design issue, but there's no returns on refurb units. They offered to RMA the 7" ones I got, but I'm 90% sure the replacements will all be flawed as well. I'll give it a shot and report back. Live and learn I guess - no more buying anything refurb unless there's a bunch of reviews to read.
