Pros: Affordable, plenty of memory, plenty of performance
Cons: Having to use Windows 8.1, no extra goodies
Other Thoughts: Arrived in a plain brown box, just the tablet and charger. Not an issue for me as I grabbed the owners manual PDF online. Plugged in, charged up, updated itself with a minor (and well known) App Store glitch. Runs fast, great hardware and with my Bluetooth keyboard and case I don't need to tow a full laptop around to take notes.
Windows 8 takes some getting used to, but I'm settling in.
Arrived in fine shape, no complaints. Refurbs can be a roll of the dice but this is my second NewEgg refurb and the last one lasted me 4 years (the battery stopped taking a charge, no surprise).

This review is from: VIZIO VTAB1008-B 8" Refurbished Tablet
Pros: - Small and lightweight
- Good display
- Updated itself right away
- Loaded with nice starter apps
Cons: - One area of the display slightly dim
- Kind of iffy USB charnging connector
- Screen is a fingerprint magnet
Other Thoughts: I was leery of a tablet, because I'm a software engineer and writer and I'm used to tactile feedback from typing. The Lenovo I had tried wasn't easy to read, either. I took a chance based on feedback here and on the Vizio website, and I couldn't be happier! The touch keypad is quite usable and I'm going to start leaving my Dell ultralight at home as this does all I need and I can grab and go with it.
I'm quite happy with it, the folio it came with is PERFECT, and I don't envy my friends with an iPhone any more.
