I had my doubts as to whether or not this product would even work out of the box. However, it does and functions better than expected. We have an ipad and asus tablet to compare it to so my wife and aren't noobs to this kind of tech. Let me begin by saying this tablet is mainly for kids/teens or first time users. It does work but I would not suggest this item for any major league tech savvy individuals. Ok then. The Nobis tablet is well worth the price ( I paid $69 cyber week). It has quite a few bells and whistle absent from your typical bargain price tablets. Quad core processing ( a little slow but fast enough), an HD screen, 8GB of memory (minus some preloaded app space taken), a micro SD slot, front and back cameras (ok quality), a HDMI mini port, and standard stuff like headphone jacks. That's a lot for a bargain basement item and guess what it all worked out of the box. It is roughly as fast (nah, a little slower) as the asus while browsing the internet and it has a picture quality that far exceeds the price. It doesn't have a high profile redna screen but it is clear and well lit none the less. We have not experienced any delays in the touch screen so far and it would seem to register motion gestures about as well as any tablet I've used. The product is really light weight and has a solid enough build to warrant a below $90 price tag (it is not sturdy enough for long term expectations). The preloaded apps work well and there isn't too much bloatware but it has a micro SD slot for expandable memory to make up for that. Did I mention it can use a run of the mill cell phone charger. That's right you can use the same car charger and phone chargers around your house to power the system up. This was a pleasant surprise for me. So far, this appears to be an excellent purchase for the children in our family. Keep in mind this review is based on a fresh out of the box experience. I cannot vouch for any longevity with the devise so I suggest you get the protection plan for this one. It will cost you less than $10 for 2 years of protection. So, if in a few days or weeks this baby turns out to be a dud or it is dropped by one of your youngsters you can just run it back to the store and receive a refund, replacement, or pay a few extra dollars for an upgrade. I have only put my hands on it a few times because it is a gift but thus far I am comfortable with giving it a 4 star rating. I'll come back when I find out more.
