Got it on Sunday Dec 1, Open it up, read the manual, powered it full charge before turning it on the next day. As soon as I turned it on 2 minutes later it shut off and turn itself back on, I though I will give the benefit of the doubt since it was just turned on, I was setting up google account and it locked up, had to restart it myself. Started playing with it and its seems pretty fast, picked up some open wifi connections no problem, download Angry bird no problem, connected the usb to laptop has 2 plugs and 1 on left worked with one of the cables but would not work in the other usb plug, the other usb connector it came with worked in the right usb but not the left even that the plug tips are the same, put 2 songs on it and then put minisd card in and it seen all the songs on it, didn't get to try the hdmi plug. Played music while playing angry bird with the sound off on the game and it locked up. I was looking under settings at how it stores thinks and it locked up, had to restart it both time, played 5 1/2 hours on it off and on and even tried to convert a dvd I had to mp4 and loaded it on and the video looked great but had no sound, think thats my fault, might not have converted it right, the sound on the games and a piano app I loaded sound good enough, the battery was getting low so I pluged it in for the night, it showed the battery charging, next day I unplugged it from charger but didnt have time to play with that day, its for my 7 yr old so i had to be sneaky. Turned it on today Wed 5th, shut right off and never powered back on, plugged it in and battery had zero charge, so even though it should have had a full charge and when charging it showed it charging it didn't so I played more with it while plugged in and it locked up again so I erased everything I put on it and took it back to walmart. When its running its great easy app install, picks up wifi easy, seems fast, has alot of cool plugins, sound is good, video looked fine, touch screen very responsive, seems solid, but had no choice but return it with the charging issue the lock ups (at least 1 every 35min or so# and it reboot #turning itself on and off). Maybe I just have bad luck, I am going to buy 1 more, think I have enough time to get it and see if it works before x-mas, and if its a lemon like the last then I will have to buy a different brand one before x-mas, first review sorry so long, it also has a rockwell chip in it and I worked on alot of computers in my day and that chipset isn't that great. by reviews it looks like hit or miss if you get a good one or not.
