Pros: Cheap! Fast. Screen is surprisingly bright.
Cons: Gets a tad warm. Hasn't been a problem per se, but its warmer than any other tablet I own.
Other Thoughts: I bought this as a throw away device for my 3 year old daughter to use during her sisters travel sports seasons. I also purchased a bumper case for it as well. Its a great little machine and much more functional than the Nabi my friend bough his kid. I bought an MSI Primo 81 as well as a couple Kindles for my other kids and this is noticeably faster. Its a lower quality build but with the bumper case, it has already survived being spiked during a tantrum. Nothing to complain about. I like it a lot. If it breaks in 3 months, well, at this price, so be it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price. Features.
Other Thoughts: I don't normally do this, but I want to clarify something that is confusing based on the wildly different reviews on this item. The reviewer regarding the speakers and 'non-existant', this is not that much of an exaggeration. It is very very low in volume. You will need headphones unless you are by yourself in a quiet room. That said, I am the 'guy' wishing the person with the iPad in the doctors office would turn down the volume on the iPad or get headphones. If you too are 'that guy', well these may be fine.
The one thing I do disagree with is skipping this item for an iPad. If you can afford an iPad, by all means get it. I don't feel this is a realistic competitor to an iPad. The iPad is super high quality, performs better, and you pay an arm and a leg for that. The Primo is definitely second tier, but still decently high quality. I have no performance issues at all with mine. It has done everything I asked and more.
Regarding the smudges, work has replaced my deceased iPad with a new one, and I don’t see any difference at all in the smudges. They both are bad, and I even use a stylus.
Is short, if you can afford an iPad, you won’t find a good competitor so buy it. If you don’t need the Cadillac, android tablets are still excellent and for the value, I wouldn’t skip this one. At the current discount, its hard to pass up.
Pros: Decent value initially. Hold lots of data.
Cons: One was bad upon delivery so I paid to ship it back for a replacement. The replacement is also bad so now I have to ship it back too. I am not thrilled I am out $24 and two trips to the post office for nothing in return.
Other Thoughts: Bought 4 of these to fill a small NAS for archival purposes. 3 worked great and passed the initial self test. As mentioned, 1 did not so I sent it back. The replacement also did not pass the self test so now I have to pay to send it back again, this time for a refund. Even though 3 out of 5 have worked, those aren't very good odds so I can't recommend these to anyone, hobbyist or professional.READ FULL REVIEW
