I ordered this tablet Monday, June 25 and received it very quickly, on Thursday, June 28. The unit looked and felt great, but was a little heavy - for the price it seemed like an awesome deal.
When trying to use the app store I noticed the system slowed down to a crawl. Took me half an hour to find and download adobe mostly because I had to stop and wait for the keyboard entry to catch up to me every few seconds. Sometimes the keyboard missed too - I would hit "F" and get "Y" on the screen instead, and would then hit delete once only to see the cursor jump back 3 spaces.
Finally finished downloading Adobe so that I could read pdf files, which is the main reason I purchased it, only to find it took forever to load each page and the text would keep going in and out of focus, making it completely impossible to read.
Instead of using Adobe, I decided to try "OfficeSuite" which came loaded on the tablet. After 5 minutes of waiting, it still hadn't loaded even the first page of the pdf. Tried multiple files, same problem.
The good news is that it connected to my WiFi with no problem - great signal - and plays YouTube and Pandora perfectly (though the external speakers sound awful - get a decent headset if you purchase this unit!). This is the only reason I'm not giving this product a one star review - it plays video and music - but the fact that it can't handle pdf files is utterly baffling.
Finally, the battery was a huge problem for me. On a full charge it was dead after an hour. How is this possible? I am convinced I actually received a defective model with a bad battery, and some hardware problem might have been responsible for the horrible performance as well. Maybe your experience will be different - but keep in mind you're buying a 10" tablet computer for $130, which is half the price of a Samsung product, and a fraction of what you'd pay for an Apple. You're taking your chances, and in my case, it just wasn't what I was hoping for.
Ultimately I returned this for a refund and ordered the 7" Ematic tablet instead. Same features, better specs, cheaper, and my wife loves hers.
