Pros: Good value for price and comes with android 7.1.1 Long lasting battery.
Cons: Over 7 Gb used by system and over 1 Gb used by apps leaving about 7 Gb free. Good luck trying to install sd card. Tried 3 different cards, kept getting corrupt card error (even though those cards work fine with other android devices). Took it to local service center and they were unable to install their card either. Lenovo customer Service gave me a case number and said it was an android problem and not a hardware problem. Google customer service said that it was hardware problem and not android problem. So as long as you do not want to add too many apps, the tablet is very good value.
After lengthy "discussions" with Lenovo tech dept, they admitted that the failure of sd card unit to read/write or format was a hardware problem and that I should return the unit to their service center for repairs. After approx $20/- in shipping costs and following their detailed directions the unit was shipped and received by them a week ago. Upon checking the status of the repair yesterday, the service dept. claimed that they had not yet received the unit. On providing them with the tracking number showing proof of delivery, they admitted that they may have misplaced the unit. As of now there is still no resolution.
Thanks to Newegg who gave me the names of key people at Lenovo, I was finally contacted. Three weeks after receiving the tablet, they started working on it, only to find that they did not have the required replacement parts. They are on order and I have been promised that the repairs will be completed in a couple of weeks. When I told them that I was informed originally by their tech dept. that since my tablet was new, they would just replace it with another new one, they said that I was misinformed.
Pros: Good for the price
Cons: Purchased 2 cards. Both failed in 2 months. Was unable to reformat under android.
Cons: First, the item received looked different from the image shown. It had only one bank of leds. Wanted to connect two computers to my cable modem. When I did so, the modem would continuously reboot. Tried plugging into different ports, but same result. Tried different cables. Same result. Since I bought it on sale, cost of returning would be higher than what I paid for it.
Pros: Good features and price
Cons: Dead on arrival. Costs more to ship it back for an exchange. Local authorized service center refused to fix it claiming that it was not worth their effort.
Overall Review: Have contacted Brother, but they have not yet responded.
