A great product!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Agptek 7 Inch Android 4.0 (8Gb) Capacitive Touch Screen Tablet Pc For E-Reading/3D Game/Hdmi 1080P 2160P Video/Tv Out (Black/White, Wi-Fi G-Sensor, Front Camera, Arm Cortex A9 1.2Ghz, 1Gb Ddr3, Extendable To 32Gb) (Personal Computers)
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.

have you actually used a microSD card in it yet? I bought the other one w 512mb ddr - as you say, pretty nice unit, except the microSD retainer was faulty. would not latch the card. its EXPENSIVE to ship things back for replace/refund in case anyone has not noticed. a couple of misfires and this unit will be well over 110 bucks.... yikes.

Yes i have installed a micro SD card, you can not make it latch using your finger....get a coin or something metallic,a pointed tool,(table knife should work) small enough to push it further in , it should latch...it will also almost disappear into the tablet, but it will work. to unlatch use a pointed device to reach it.
The problem is that once it latches you need to get tweezers to remove it upon unlatch........as i don't expect to get the micro SD card out that often, I can live with this small ..Mis design.

I also purchased this tablet and am liking it so far. I am getting it setup and apps installed so it's ready for my son's birthday on Nov. 30th. I was wondering if you know if there's a setting I can enable to keep "inappropriate" apps from popping up on Google Play. I was searching for some free apps for him and needless to say, some of them are quite adult oriented. Thanks.

There is not an options in the factory/ hardware settings to give you parental control....but there are apps that let you restrict what apps your son can have access to.... Please go to Google play and search for parental control app..... "Kids Place - Parental Control" and "Android Parental Control" may be good ones....
Since your Google account gets linked to the Google play for purchases, it may be a good idea to restrict Google play all together so that only you can install and purchase apps.....if he gets access to Google play he will pretty much be able to install anything he wants(within Google play).

does the Kindle app work with this?
In reply to an earlier post on Nov 20, 2012 8:00:53 AM PST
you can read books on this tablet, including thousands of free Kindle books. The Kindle app puts over a million books at your fingertips. It's the app for every reader, whether you're a book reader, magazine reader, or newspaper reader-and you don't need to own a Kindle to use it. you can get kindle App from Google play.

i just got the tablet and so far so good, I'm having a little trouble finding a case any suggestions?
In reply to an earlier post on Nov 20, 2012 10:06:08 AM PST
search Amazon for : Platinum Series Soft Zip Case for Most 7" Tablet Mobile Phones. I just went to target and bought an over sized soft case (10.1 inches) if you want oversized, search Amazon for this one: Case Logic ENST-110 7 - 10.2-Inch Laptop/iPad/Netbook Sleeve. Thanks

has anyone tried to download the netflix app. i've tried, but it won't let me sign in
In reply to an earlier post on Nov 21, 2012 6:30:22 AM PST
This is a comment by the second reviewer i copied it for you:
For those experiencing the Netflix issues with the member sign in buttons not responding, it will work. Install the netflix app like normal and open the app. Enter your existing account user name and password into the "free month" sign up box. Use the enter key from your on screen keyboard to submit your log in info. Once you sign in Netflix should work as needed. I didnt have any cache issues or any browser issues. My only issue was I could never log in as the log in button or continue buttons never responded. Using the on screen keyboard enter key solved my issue. Now my kids can use the netflix app by hitting the quick launch button from their tablet home screen and it loads our account automatically. YAY!!!
