Pros: Good specs - similar to the rest of the Android field
Low price - at the $300 mark, this thing is a steal
Solid performance - Apps run well
Cons: Needs several updates before it performs well
Has numerous programs installed that you'll never use
Other Thoughts: It's a great deal for the money, and would reallly be worth it for even more money. A friend has another tablet, and I don't see any real functional differences between the to, even though his was $150 more, and only has 16GB of built iin storage. The important thing is to make sure you've got all the udpates installed. I also had some issues after uninstalling some of the bloatware, so I reset the tablet to factory settings, and just ignore the things I don't need.
I use this to watch videos from files, YouTube, and NetFlix all without issues. The only things I can't do with this(I'm writing this review on my tablet) that I can do with a laptop is the more complex office/document work, and writing code. I suppose I could write code in text files, if I wanted to do it the hard way.
Pros: The same basic features as most of the better android tablets out there today, with the dual-core Tegra 2 and a gig of RAM, front and rear cameras, etc. It runs well, and the only times I've had a slow down is when I've left a ton of apps running in the background. This is easily remedied, since the app-switcher has a little red X on each app to quickly close it. Super handy addition to the standard UI, and something that my friend ASUS doesn't have.
Cons: So far I haven't had any issues I would call a 'con'. I know some people have had issues, and others have said that it just needs to be updated to solve those issues. I make it a habit to update new tech before I really do anything with it, so I can't say how it performed out of the box. I spent maybe 30 minutes setting up my accounts and doing a few updates, and it has performed well for me.
Other Thoughts: I can understand why they are sold out, there really isn't another tablet out there with this price/performance blend. I haven't checked around to see if other retailers have a similar price, but I'd easily pay another $100 for this and still call it a good deal.READ FULL REVIEW
