I bought this as an Xmas present for my daughter to use for social networking so I could get my hands back on my laptop which seems to constantly find its way to her room on most evenings! I looked around and couldn't find anything near this specification for the money and couldn't beleive I got it for under £60! It certainly isn't the fastest tablet on the market and the resistive screen can be annoying sometimes when trying to navigate around. However it performs as advertised and I was really impressed with the quality of the HD output to TV. Overall for the money it is an excellent buy.

hello. bought 2 of these for christmas presents, 1 for 8 year old daughter and 1 for my wife . my daughter shows my wife how to down load and use it. they both use it for emailing , storing music and videos. it may not be as slick as an i pad (i wouldn't know)but it does everything you throw at it except make phone calls (havent tried skype).good battery life fairly easy to set up and get your emails through etc. good sesitive screen and easy to navigate. if you have an andoid phone you'll get on fine with it.windows doesn't like it very much when transferring music but media go which came with my sony ericsson phone works a treat.

Good tablet for the money, resistive touch screen needs a bit harder press than is ideal, but not really a problem, some apps don't run as well as on my phone, but generally fine.
Android market is apparently not supported (storage options web site), but it is installed on the tablet and seems to work fine, you just need to add a shortcut to it! (menu, add, shortcuts, applications, market).
overall very pleased with it for the price.

This little tablet packs quite a big punch for an 'ENTRY' model adroid tablet and anything below £100.00 for a 7" tablet seems reasonable value at the time of this review.

Unfortunately, I experienced problems with power-out on the usb socket preventing the tablet from hosting any USB devices (keyboard/Flash memory stick)and a bit of Googling soon told me I was not alone.

To keep things in balance there are also some reviews extolling the virtues of this little beast but I am aware of 3 other users plus me who have suffered from this usb fault.

Getting Android Market access is as easy as adding the market widget which is pre-installed.

Resistive screen technology works great for me using a rubber tipped stylus and a screen protector film {once you get used to it}.

Plays videos in many formats flawlessly but don't expect BBCi player as this model's hardware doesn't support flash.

Very disappointed having opened this to charge it up in time for Xmas and load it with games etc for my daughter to find that despite it being Android 2.3 it doesn't have access to the Android Market meaning I am unable to add several of the apps that I wanted to.

The screen itself is very slow to respond and awkward to use.

The tablet itself is very light and portable.

Scroll Essential with Androit 2.3 is disappointing
Reviewed by . Review Posted 03/02/2012

I didn't realise how restrictive Androit 2.3 is. Everything I try is an effort and the majority of my attempts end up in disappointment.
I think, even the presently much reduced price is too high for something that is so limited in its applications.
I now use it just for quick internet searches if the main PC is not switched on and it would take too long to go through the start-up motion and anti virus update.
I realise there are a few good reviews on this site about this unit but I am afraid I am not one of them.
