Ok, let me start by saying that I have wanted a tablet for over a year now! I actually bought two different ones about a year ago, but found that for the price range (under $200) and with the older Android systems, they were two small at 7" and two slow and not user friendly. So my patients has finally paid off! I travel a lot and refuse to carry my laptop while on vacation, but still wanted a way to stay "connected." LOVE this 9" tablet. Ordered it and have played with it non stop for two days since receiving it. Connected right to my home wifi - went to app market and downloaded the Netflix app and was watching movies within 10 minutes of taking it out of the box. Downloaded all my MP3 Player songs (from both mine and my husbands MP3's) on to it...down loaded a couple other apps like Expedia and Ebay (so I can shop while bored!)..... also downloaded a bunch of pics to it. The touch screen is really responsive, found it to be very fast (did notice a little "lag" when watching netflix...a little pixle distortion for the first couple minutes and then a possible "buffering" statement - but after that it looks pretty good. Listened to my music and I think the speaker is good, and through my earphones it sounds AWESOME! Like the fact I can view my photos off my digital camera while on vacation through a USB card reader and see them much bigger before getting home to my lap top. Was able to go right to my home yahoo email account and use that. As long as there is a wifi connection around, which almost every hotel and airport has now..... we're golden... and it will amuse my husband in the hotel at night when we are in foreign countries that have nothing good on TV to watch..... He can just sit and watch Netflix! And we can listen to music on our flights...or possibly play some games (still have to scope out downloading some of these) Can't wait to use this on our upcoming trip to Rome. Has a really nice feel in your hand, and I already found two nice cases for it on line really cheap. One is a leather portfolio style that it clips into that has a cover that folds closed, plus it will fold to work like a little tripod so you can set it on a flat surface and it holds it up for you to view. Also a nice padded case to carry it in for protection. Also bought a screen protector that just had to be cut a little to fit. So there are plenty of universal accessories that will work for this brand. PS: Only "problem" to speak of so far is I purchased a 32GB Class 10 HC MicroSD to expand the memory and it couldn't read the card....I believe it is just a compatibility issue after speaking with the manufacturers customer service...so I am going to try a different card instead (I popped in the 4 GB out of my cell phone and it read that fine...so I don't think there is going to be a problem with a different card once I get one). Also, the user manual is pretty much useless..... not a lot of info.... but it is so easy to use it hasn't been that hard to figure things out. And once you got something down, its easy as pie.
