A great product!
on November 15, 2012
This is a well made sturdy tablet and has been working great so far. The pre installed internet browser works well and is not too slow either considering using a cortex A9 1.2 GHz processor.
I recommend that you buy a 32GB micro SD card as the tablet does not come with any. 32GB should be plenty for your videos and games which take more room than voice recordings or photos.
I have several PCs with different windows operating systems. when I tried to access the tablet's internal 8GB Rom or my installed 32 GB Mico SD card using windows XP , i was not successful, however It worked perfectly on windows 7, i have not tried it with Vista yet.
Accessing your tablet with a PC is not absolutely necessary but it is the only way you can transfer your own movies, photos and music to your tablet. if you do decide to do this, each format has to be placed in its specific folder. you could, just dump it on the Micro SD card root directory,but I recommend you put it in the folder assigned for it.(please see my update note #6 at the end of this review)
The 3D games I installed work flawlessly and that is one of the reasons I bought this tablet as it can handle 3D games. My favorites are 3D shooters :)
Bottom line :This is a great Tablet for the price! If you purchase this item, get a nice soft case to protect it and i also recommend buying a spare charger for it(comes with one) . The charger needs to have a 5V output and must be able to provide 2AMPS minimum. The power tip must be a mini barrel 2.1 to 2.5 mm outside diameter or it will not fit the Tablet. unfortunately AGPtek does not sell spare power supplies for this tablet!!
Update: A few questions came up by some buyers which i like to add to this section:
1- the Micro SD card appears not to latch when you push it in with your finger...this appears to be a design flaw and has been reported to me by at least 2 people...Get a narrow pointed tool and push it in further..it should latch..it will also almost disappear into the tablet.
2-This tablet does not have Bluetooth capability, so do not try to purchase a Android Bluetooth external game controller for this device.
3-It may be obvious to most of us, but this is a tablet and has no cell phone capability !!
4- Although it is not mentioned in the specifications, it does have a built in microphone.
5-The model number for this device on your system info and google account will appear as "WonderMedia WM8850-mid" you can google this name and find out more about this tablet.
6-A micro USB to standard USB port cable comes with this tablet. you can connect your standard USB flash drive (i connected a 32GB device) and watch your movies, photos ,musics,PDFs, word documents and virtually anything else the device reads from its internal memory, directly from your external USB memory, just like a PC!!!!
7-The model number for the AC/DC ADAPTER (power supply) is :HT-001-050200
DO A SEARCH FOR: Power Adapter Chager 5V 2A for Tablet PC A10/A13 Black if you want to buy a spare charger.
8-I recently tested this tablet, both with a wired USB keyboard and a wireless mouse.....it worked fine like a PC ! when you connect the keyboard..it does not tell you , your device has been connected, driver installed or any thing else, but it works......also once the keyboard is connected...you will not be able to see the onscreen keyboard as long as wired keyboard is connected.
