  • A. RAM is random access memory. The Marquis comes with 4 gig of random access memory with the option to expend that up to 32 gig. RAM is used in several ways by your tablet. Mostly RAM is used by the tablet to temporarily store information while running one or several applications. Because this information is now stored in a digital format, the tablet can read it quicker making it more responsive. So no matter what, the Marquis has 4gig of RAM built in.... but if you wanted to upgrade the RAM it would be through a MicroSD memory stick which can be purchased at many electronic stores. These cards come in various sizes. The Marquis can handle 32gig of RAM ( 4 gig built in plus 28 gig via a memory stick). I would go with a 10 gig Micro SD upgrade...it doesn't cost that much and I doubt you will need much more then that.

I went through three of these until it was out of warranty and they would not fix or replace it anymore. The first one I had developed a few dead pixel after about a week of use. I replaced it at the store and it was fine for about six months when it developed a dark spot about the size of a nickle. I sent it under warranty back to the manufacturer and they replaced it. About a month after the warranty expired and only five months after it had been replaced it will not charge or turn on. The companies response was that its out of warranty and so it is my problem. As a matter of law they are correct, it was passed thirteen months since I bought it but come on, three major manufacturer defects and within a year. That's a lemon of a tablet if ever there was one. Buy it at your own risk!

Beware of Battery Problems

I bought two of these tablets, one for me and the other for my son. Right when we got them we charged them and checked for any firmware updates. Both were updated. Unfortunately, the tablet would shut down anywhere between 15-30% battery charge without warning. Then in order to turn it back on I had to do a hard reset every time. I contacted the manufacturer since they had a firmware update that specifically addressed this battery issue, but was told since it was already updated it was a manufacturer defect and to return it to the store. I returned both to Walmart and purchased another from Best Buy - same thing and the one I received from Best Buy would not stay connected to the wifi but the first two from Walmart would. I loved this tablet. It had amazingly fast internet when connected to wifi, great graphics with clear and bright colors. But with the battery issue I had to rate it at 1 star.

PROS: 1- Decently fast processor. 2- Good color. 3- Charges fairly quickly. 4- Google play was one of the reasons I bought this. That's a nice feature. CONS: 1- I had an issue where the on-screen keyboard was popping up sometimes when I was scrolling down a webpage. 2- At 2.5 pounds and the smooth rounded sides, it is difficult to hold with one hand while scrolling with the other. This may be the case with all 10-inch tablets, I don't know. 3- The wifi internal antenna is VERY weak. I couldn't connect to my router which was only 50 feet away (no walls or doors in the way). This isn't a problem with my router since my Wii and PS3 connect to it just fine. 4- No standard USB port on the tablet. It has a proprietary port with a USB cable that attaches to this port for USB connectivity. I knew this before buying the tablet, but still a con. 5- Low amount of memory on-board. I knew this as well. I was planning on buying a 32gig card as an additional purchase, but fortunately decided to return it for a refund before I bought the card.

I did a lot of research before purchasing this tablet. From what I gathered on techy websites and blogs from those who have tried this tablet out.. it seems that it's very competative and similar to an ipad in it's size and majority of capabilities. However, it's an android device and the inside components work as an android. Its runs on the Ice Cream Sandwich operating system instead of the newer JellyBean operating system but it's still super fast. I purchased an extra memory card for more storage but it comes with enough space for the average user, i think. Over all, I would recommend this product BUT I also recommend that you get the $19 2 year extended warranty through walmart - it's actually cheaper than most 2yr warranties like say at places suchs as Best Buy. It's worth the money and I'm 100% happy with this tablet. It also fits most all cases that ipads fit into.

This is a really nice tablet, feels very solid, is pretty fast for surfing the web. It does have GPS on it. I love the size and the Google Play Store. You cannot get Flash from Google Play store any more, but there is a great browser that works that you can purchase there for $5 that will play flash. Or you can sideload the Flash player. I did that, but wonder if it may have had something to do with a problem I had with the tablet freezing up and shutting down. I do think the freezing up problem had to do with the battery though. Even though I had this problem, I rate this tablet 5 stars because the company that makes this tablet has excellent customer service and they were very helpful. They said if I could not get the problem to resolve, they would send me a new one that was tested. I believe I do have the problem fixed with a firmware update that they sent me via email. They were very prompt and thorough with their responses. I see others had battery problems and I'm wondering if they tried this update from the company.

First of all this is not a $600 iPad or Galaxy 10.1 so do not expect it to be. It is however a bright, crisp, nice display with a responsive screen and well known Texas instruments dual core processor. It has all the essentials. Front face camera for chat, good battery life, Bluetooth, GPS, expandable memory with micro SD card and friendly fast tech support. My sons have Nexus 7 tablets and just received the 4.2.1 update. This tablet is a few updates behind still being 4.0.3. My phone is 4.1.1; these operating systems all look and act basically the same so don't freak out about older firmware. The people at Matsunichi told me this unit can handle the upgrade easily but there is no time table for it. Now to some other things. No there is not a HDMI port nor micro USB but honestly when do you connect your tablet to your TV via HDMI but if you want to there is an adapter available to connect HDMI cable through the 30 pin charging port (similar but not the same as iPad set up). There is also an adaptor for an Ethernet cable if you wanted a wired connection for updates (realistically most do it wirelessly anyway). The brand is also coming out with its own line of accessories shortly. Those who had an issue may have received tablets that needed firmware updates and if they contacted the company before returning would have received fast and professional tech support. My questions were answered in less than a day. Hope this review helps. I personally am very satisfied with my Matsunichi Marquis Pad.

I got it to carry with me instead of my heavy laptop. Just charged it up, and ready to use. Easy to load programs. Has a variety of apps that are free through google. A great value for the money! I'm not computer savvy, but it's easy to navigate, and I have no trouble using the keyboard.

I bought this tablet for my teenage daughter in lieu of upgrading her new cellphone to a smartphone. Her school uses iPad's, so she already had a working knowledge of what applications she could use a tablet for. Although this is NOT the equivalent of an iPad, it does offer a similar surface area at high resolution, good speed with its dual core Texas Instruments processors, and the ability to update available RAM without bleeding your bank dry. Bottom line : The screen is pleasing to the eye and its HD capabilities enhances that experience. The battery doesn't seem to last very long when watching videos ( about 3.4 hours ) but that is expected. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with my purchase and I didn't have to sell a kidney to get it.

LePan II upgrade to ICS

Being a proud owner of LePan II, I have to say that this is Matsunichi's upgrade to ICS. I am sure the Marquis pad will be well worth its price. This is an excellent company and have really gone way beyond the call of duty supplying the public with a wonderful device at a very decent price point. I could not be happier with LePan II. It never fails to amaze me the more I get to know it and the more apps I discover on Google is mind boggling I probably will not be purchasing another tablet for awhile but if I do, I will definitely go with Matsunichi again.
