I bought 2 of these for my kids. They came in a timely manner, and are what I was looking for. Since my kids are 7 and 3, I wanted something I could load up with tons of games, take it off of Wi-Fi and let them play with them on our long car rides to see the grandparents each week. I have played with both tablets every night for the last 2 weeks and have run into no problems. I have an iPad and there is NO comparison, but if you're looking for something simple and keep your expectations realistic for a device under $100 you will be pleased with this tablet.

It's hard to be too critical at this price point, but I'll throw out a list of pros and cons;

Pros:
- Price! You can buy this as an introductory device for your children without worrying too much about what happens to it.
- It's a relatively sturdy piece of hardware. The resistive screen allows the use of older stylus'(styli?)that make writing or drawing or taking notes easier than the capacative touchscreen blob stylus'.
- Device is already rooted, so if you've ever wanted to put custom firmware on any of your more expensive devices, this is a nice way to practice doing that until you're comfortable with the various procedures.
- Expandable storage. Most devices at 5 times the price don't have expandable storage, making this tablet a nice companion for the car, or for traveling.

Cons:
- Slightly gimped cpu, but it gets the job done. Not the greatest for multitasking, jut make sure you install an app killer so you don't have 20 apps running at the same time.
- Low amount of ram, but again, ties into the cpu issue, just don't run a billion things at once.
- Play store will take some tweaking to get to work, but there are infinite resources online on how to get around this.

Overall a solid device. If you're just getting into the tablet market, and want to give an android device a try, this is great. Also great for kids, as it is relatively sturdy, and wont destroy your pocketbook if the little ones use it a skateboard.

I bought this for my son. It is very easy to use and very light weight, perfect for his age which is 9.

It's Ok for the price I paid. The touch screen is not very sensitive, and the screen is kind of blurry. Moreover, I have been unable to download some applications on it.
