Response time is quite fast and the wireless internet connected quickly.

The Kindle Fire does not allow you out of the box access to the Android Marketplace and thus the apps you can install on the Fire can be somewhat limited.
Jane Litte
And trust me, once you notice something like that - or maybe it just had been getting worse - it became really irritating, really fast.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Alert: this is not a highly technical review, but from a laptop/desktop user unfamiliar with tablets.

The feel and handling of the new Micro Cruz T408 is excellent. Not too heavy, but substantial. The screen is clear and made of high density, scratch resistant plastic, which leaves lots of fingerprints, as does the glossy black border. The screen itself reacts to the touch rather nicely. Out of the box, the tablet is pre-charged, so you can play with it immediately. The welcome screen steps you thru a brief setup of Wi-Fi, language, time, time zone, and email accounts, if you wish. You can load more than one email address if you have multiples email accounts and when you pull up your mail they can be separate or aggregated into one.

The home screen features icons for both the Amazon Kindle store and the Amazon Android Appstore, along with games, browser, email, inkpad, Napster, Facebook, Youtube, File Manager and W-Fi settings. If you have an Android phone, which I don't, I'm sure the tablet will feel very familiar.
One note, being a Prime member, I thought I could watch Prime Streaming Videos on this, but you can't. I also understand that it is also the same for Kindle Fire. I would assume that Amazon will fix that problem shortly. At least, I couldn't get it work! As of now, the true Android App Market is not available on the Cruz, just the Amazon Appstore.

The browser works like any other browser with a pop-up keyboard on the bottom of the screen, which does take some getting used to. The speed of internet connection to web pages is relatively fast, not quite desktop speed, but more than acceptable.

Verified Purchase
First, I want to say that this is NOT a high-end, over $300 tablet. In this price range, I feel the fair thing to do is compare it to other similar-priced items, and this is where I feel this little guy shines.

//// Before I forget, I want to say that the BatteryWatch app by The Mobile Content Distribution doesn't work with this device. I'll explain why further into the review, but BEWARE of this problem, since it will make your tablet inoperable. //////

So, I wanted to get an eReader or something not very expensive and started searching. At first, I was inclined to go for the Kindle Fire, which costs the same as this device. I made a search by price and read the reviews, and realized that anything below this price wouldn't be worth buying. Once I determined the lowest acceptable price, I started reading through all the reviews and the two that stood out were the T408 and the Fire. I have to say that right now I feel VERY happy I chose this device over the Fire, and here's why...

1) I had a feeling I was going to miss having the Android Marketplace, but I don't believe the Fire has it either, so null point.

2) While I like Amazon, I didn't want to be stuck with no memory card or internal space, and only having the Amazon Cloud for storage. Being able to use a micro SD card really made a difference for me. If the Fire had free 3G or 4G, I would probably have found it more acceptable to stream and download everything from the Amazon Cloud, but since I have to use my cell phone as a mobile hot spot when I'm not at home or at a place where wifi is available, I really thought I should have more storage available with the device I got.

3) I don't believe there is anything that can be done with the Fire that cannot be done with the T408.

This is a great tablet for what it is. It is designed to be an inexpensive tablet for those who do not want to spend the big bucks for an iPad or a high-end Android tablet. Of course, it does not have some of the features that you would expect on a pricier tablet (like Bluetooth, a faster processor, higher resolution screen, etc.). But you should already know all of this going in. So it would be unfair to give this product a low star rating based on what it is NOT. I'm giving the Cruz T408 five stars because it does exactly what it's designed to do and performs excellently.
I have had this tablet for about a month now, and have had no problems whatsoever. It has handled just about every app I've thrown at it. I've experienced no lag in graphics and the screen quality is not as visually poor as many people claim. I have my screen turned down to 50% brightness to save battery power and still I get a great image. Certainly the resolution is less than many other tablets... But you know, we're talking about an *eight* inch screen here, so a lower resolution isn't as bad as it would be on a full-sized TV or any large screen. Let's be realistic - the smaller the screen, the easier it is to get away with low resolution and still get a decent picture.
Since I have never owned an Android device before, the lack of Android Market doesn't bother me. You can't miss what you don't know. And the Amazon App Store is growing (especially with the Kindle Fire out there), so there are plenty of good apps to be had. The T408 comes with many apps pre-installed and the Amazon App Store is included, so you are all set right out of the box.
One of the big selling points for me was the expandable memory. I have a 32gb SD card installed in my tablet and this gives me ample storage space.
