Very slow and freezing

This device not good at all. It freezes automatically and can not get back the screen. Reset or power shut down or restart all attempts fail to get back the screen. Once the customer service help to unfreeze it. But the problem repeated once and again. Now I am going to throw it in garbage.

I recently bought this thinking that it would be a good tablet, i though wrong, it is very slow and can't run anything for a long period of time.

Kids love it

This tablet is what you would expect foe price. The touchscreen has a delay and isn't very accurate. It is kinda slow. But I bought it for my 11 yr old daughter for Christmas whom I expected to just have fun with it and not use it for anything important.I like the size, and for the price this was a good deal. Processor is a bit slow when loading pages though, that takes some getting used to. Easy to use and learn, and can't beat the Android Play Store for apps!r th

It is cheap and does not worth the buy

I purchased this product last year. The major problems are the tablet will close by itself very slow for video playback, don't connect quickly on the WI FI networks. Furthermore after one year of use it no longer works. best advice not purchased.

Okay for the price

Only issue is you can't download Google Play which mean no Youtube :(

Outdated and Horrible Display

Do not buy this tablet, not worth your time and money.

Garbage don't waste your money

Bought two for my children for Christmas and within a few months neither one would charge, both ports on both tablets won't work. My kids took very good care of them and treasured their tablets but they turned out to be Junk!

Took awhile to figure it out.

But now I love it. Great value for the price. May not have the bells and whistles and can be slower, but does the job. For those concerned about not using THE major Playstore....I used an online major book and movie store's app store....just as good!

great for the price!!!

Had mine for a week now and loving it! Not as fast as my laptop but a whole lot easier to carry which is why I got it. Good for travelling. Also good is the expandable storage. You can put a lot of apps on the 32GB card and if that's not enough, get a second card. And it's easy to learn to use for those of us who didn't grow up with computers like my grand-daughter.

Wonderful Tablet

We bought two of this tablets and we are really happy with them. Out of the box they are very well built (well, same as the pricy ones... drop them on the floor and you'll get same result). Before you start using them just read or watch the instructional video and you will never have problems with anything such errors and bad signal or tablet turning off unexpectedly... Performance wise... I can gladly say this are fantastic, we use them for business so fast Internet, banking, tons of free applications from 1 Mobile Market and if you want Google Play on them you can install Good E Reader and have EVERYTHING, plus all the bonus of an Android system. Was very easy to install the free office suite and we had no problems so far, also we found many free applications for reading, converting and signing PDF documents. For other fun stuff we installed some games, Netflix, YouTube, google erath, maps, gmail... The battery will hold at full brightness and wi-fi on for about 4-5 hours and if you dim the brightness and turn wi-fi off while you are reading your e-books you can go for a very long time... we read and e-book for about 4 hours and the kids read their books for another hour and the battery was at 43%. Also we like the fact you can directly connect and read e-books from London Public Library. For the case, I couldn't find one in the store (but I didn't look to hard) so we ordered ours from the Hipstreet web site, the Hipstreet Flare Standing Portfolio Case. We didn't look for other accessories yet as the tablet comes equipped with a protective film right from the case.... The only thing I didn't like and that is the reason I put 4 for screen is reading outdoor.... it's not bad, you can read but not as fine as electronic paper readers... it's just as any other tablet screen. Also this as any other tablet is not a toy for kids. We have 3 kids and we take the time to read paper books with them or guide them to play with toys. Kids don't understand how a tablet or computer works no matter how smart you think your kid is so the chance of your device not working after letting a kid play with it is pretty high...

Not Good

I just bought one for my daughter and had to return it in 2 days. it kept turning itself off and wouldn't hold a battery charge. It kept freezing while playing Netflix and the clock didn't work. Major disappointment.

Great for the price!

I bought the product largely to view documents in meetings and to have something smaller to carry around than my laptop. Product is great value for the price. The screen is responsive. I downloaded a free app to be able to view the types of documents that I typically view. The video has been great and the battery has also been great. I would highly recommend this product for someone looking to get started with tablets but doesn't want to invest significant funds.

Great for the price!

I am very happy with this product given the price point! It does everything I need and then some! My goal was to check email, read/view documents at work related meetings, search the web, and watch the odd video - without having to lug around my laptop. I was able to download a free App that allows me to view Word, Excel, PPTs, and PDFs. The drag is a little less refined than some of the more expensive products but overall very responsive. Image quality is great. Battery life has been great! My only concern has been in finding a case. I've had to order one online. Difficult to find a 9" case and the generic one that I bought did not hold the product in place so now I am trying another version.
