    If you want to experience your first tablet. This is correct! cons*: - You have to install the google market play. - Some apps are not designed for tablets.

    I work for a railroad, and have to carry a ton of rule books with me. They allow us to carry the rules in electric format, such as on a laptop. I got this tablet to see if i was feasable to carry the rules on this lightweight, small device. And, it works perfectly! It's fast, easy to read, and simple to use. I was worried about battery life, and found that when I turned the wireless off, the battery lasts a long time! But, when you need the wireless, it works fine. When I update the rules files, I do it by copying the files onto the SD card using my desktop or laptop, then just insert it into the tablet and it's ready to go! A great little value, and it's fun to play with the many free apps that are available for it.

    This was my first tablet and i love it. ACTUALLY I have no need for my laptop much anymore, i got Netflix downloaded and it plays great as well as alot of other things. I also got Adobe Flash,Adobe Air downloaded. The battery life has been about 5-6 hrs of constant use because i have games downloaded and alot of times I don't put it down.It doesn't handle google play app store but download the Amazon AppStore which has loads of free apps compatable with this tablet and 1 mobil app store. I can't get the bookstore to work that comes with it, so i downloaded the Kobo Book app and that works great. Overall this is fantastic. Just like having a mini computer and for the money it's even a better deal so i say but this one over any of the ones walmart sells

    Ok so I never write reviews but since there is not one for this awesome items , it would be a disservice if i dont! This tablet is awesome and not just for the money I paid 189.00 ( plus warranty 59.00 )for it about a week ago. Got it in two days awesome ( even though i was told 2 weeks for free shipping). I haven't put it down yet . I did give it 5 stars because its an excellent product overall and a bargain ; in my opinion it sells itself short ; very comparable to gold standard ; but what makes it great is it ANDROID; so I can get adobe , expand my memory and save 200 plus dollars over most well known tablets ( coby been around a very longtime# ; but the speed on this is awesome ; my only complaint is the camera is 0.3 mp but really who cares your not using it for pics ;and battery life lasts 5-6hr when using multiple programs # web browing ; mulitipe games# . You can use amazon app store ; not google ; i ve been able to find every app i needed for school , work and play for free between amazon and the pre installed getjar ; this is absolutely worth your money ; totally does what it says and more ; only different between it and big dollar tablet is the name . I like it so much that i cant put it down ! Plus now i noticed it on sale you cant beat they price ... 8 inch screen ; light weight ; easy to carry ; comes with case ; and all the cables you need ! Wont even have to spend any more $ like you would with others)

    Bought this for my son for his 14th birthday. He loves it! Can do almost anything on it. Listens to music, goes on the web and takes pictures with it. He got a free app to read the Bible on it. It was worth every penny knowing he reads the Bible everyday...at least a verse or two!

    It's a great Tablet for the price. I was able to download Adobe Flash, Firefox, Yahoo, Amazon apps., Google Play, etc. The only problem I am having is streaming video's which could be because Adobe Flash is not upgrading for Android. Still working on that with my geek son. Other than that it is perfect for researching things on the web, Twitter, email, photo's display fantastic when downloaded, Facebook, reading my local paper, etc. For the money you can't beat it. I did purchase a case with keyboard and it looks and feels like a mini computer. The battery life is great and honestly I can be on it for 4-5 hours before it's time to charge (unlike my Android Phone). Highly recommend unless your needs are bigger. I also bought the damage warranty from Walmart for $15 for an additional 2 years which I highly recommend especially if it's not in a case...It's very slippery.

    I love computers and tablets. From my first computer (Apple II, 1978) to my current one (HP Touchsmart) and first tablet (Archos 7HT, 2010) to this one (Coby MID8042-2) I have enjoyed them all. I have had tablets from 5" to 10.1" screens and most sizes in-between. I like this 8" size and 4:3 screen ratio the best. There are not many makers of this breed. I already have a Pandigital SuperNova that I have reviewed on this site and wanted another 8" so I bought the Coby. In my opinion they are about equal. The Pandigital is a little faster (Quadrant score =1700 vs 1500 for the Coby. The Pandigital has front and back cameras, Bluetooth, and a light sensor that the Coby does not. Neither has a GPS. The Pandigital only has Android 2.3 where the Coby has 4.0. Neither has the Google Android Market/Playstore. But there is a workaround to install an older version of the Market. It is still working on the Pandigital but stopped working on the Coby after a few days. The Coby has a great battery life, I have only charged it once in over a week of use. It is light (1 lb.) and seems to be made well. It has a physical back/escape button that is rare in Android 4.0 devices. I have installled many apps on it and all ran well. A few games are not compatible with this device because of the lack of the appropriate sensors. All-in-all a very nice tablet.

    I'm certainly not a computer genius, but love the ease of this product. I bought it mainly to read e-books on. I have completed 4 books and love it. My favorite part for reading is that you can change the book pages to white on black. Now, I can read in bed and my husband doesn't even know it's on. I also use it often to check my kids social networking statuses. I do not have anyone to skype with, but would assume that would be a breeze, as well. For the money and what I wanted, I feel I got more than my monies worth.

    I bought this tablet for school and it works great. I'm not a big tech guy but this is just great for your average joe. Easy to use ok amount of apps from get jar. Works fast and does its best keeping up with my typing. Doesn't feel cheap like some other coby products, comes with a 1 year warranty from manufacture. Great for a high school student. Very similar to an ipad, but is not as responsive ( screen). Great for the money. Good sound quality. Decent camera. If you buy it you should like it. I WOULD RECOMEND THIS TO EVERYONE I KNOW!

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    I bought this to watch Netflix, surf the net, and check my email. I had some trouble finding a Netflix app that would work, but I called the toll free number on my Netflix account, and the young man I spoke to had me watching "Breaking Bad" within minutes. I did buy a case for $16.50 from another online venue, and it included a tiny keyboard that makes typing emails, etc. a little easier than using the touch screen. I like to sew, and this unit is small enough to put on my sewing machine cabinet while I sew so I can look at online tutorials or videos and follow along as I work. (Very convenient.) I did have a little trouble getting it connected to my internet server, but I called my provider and they helped my with it and it was working in just a few minutes. I am having allot of fun playing with this, and would recommend it.
