Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: AGPtek® 7" TFT Android 4.0 Capacitive Touch Screen Tablet PC (Wi-Fi Cortex A9 1.2Ghz CPU, 512M DDR3, Built-in 4GB Storage, Extend To 32GB T-Flash) (Personal Computers)
AGPTEK may be trying to pull a vizio. This tablet is real good I would go as far to say its better then the first gen kindle fire. Also its lighter thinner and has a camera and supports gps. The design is a close to a down right knock off of the google nexus 7 without the matted back and different camera position. It feels great in the hands. HDMI out and upgradeable memory not to forget the mic that works very well. The battery is one of the real stars of the show... out of the box at about 75% I'm still using it after at least 8 app downloads, some trial gameplay, browsing and all while wi-fi, sync and gps are on and I have not dimmed the screen and oh yea I'm using it now to write this and I'm still in the blue battery wise. So many tablets are popping up for cheap prices and a lot of them are bad. But just like vizio hdtv every now and then a company just makes a great product for a low price and this is just that. Don't wana shell out 200.00 just yet? Then at 80-90 bucks you will not be sorry with this dual core tablet you may even find yourseld content. And android gamers I'm talking to you too this tablet is slim with a good looking tft screen and strong battery and the dual core has no problem with any game you may want to throw at it. Downsides are I don't like the speaker position nore how much the power and volume bottons stick out. And the blue agptek logo on the back is ugly. I can't say it beats out the GN7 or the new I pad but it damn sure holds its own.

I have a few questions for you, if you don't mind. :o)
Are you still happy with this tablet?
Do you watch TV on it; such as androidTV or abc.com?
Have you found a screen protector and case that fit this device?

I am still very happy with this tablet but there are a few issues. The WiFi antenna seems to be a bit on the weak side And Netflix and Hulu do not seem to be compatible. Any online streaming video from sites such is NBC or ABC Work just fine watching video directly from the browser. I have not tried Android TV... Because most Android devices use the tegra technology. Some sites often confused this tablet for iPad Because it uses similar technology and I'm not saying is as strong as iPad anyway. As for a case and screen protector you may as well just buy universal screen protectors and trim it down. I purchased a carrying case with a physical keyboard from Amazon for 7 dollars. So you should have no problem finding one. I also recently saw Big Lots will be carrying this tablet for $79.99 and I'm currently waiting on its Big Brother the 10.1 inch screen 1.5ghz dual core tablets with a slightly better display at 169.99 I will write a review as soon as it comes in

Thanks for your review! I purchased two of these, and *really* love these tablets, but both times I've had to return them bc the HDMI ports didn't work.
Re Netflix: On both of the tablets I had, Netflix worked fine, BUT only if you clear the data each time. When you sign in, you have to use the fields on the screen that say somethg like "register for free trial". (Just put your username & password there each time you open the app).
Re battery life: I was using my tablet mostly for reading Kindle ebooks. The battery lasts quite a while for a budget tablet, usually about 4-5 hours of regular use (not necessarily intensive). After 10 minutes of no use, the tablet goes to sleep, and sometimes the battery indicator would show it hadn't been plugged in for 15+ hours (ie I'd read awhile, set it down & forget about it, read some more, set it down again etc... & battery still wasn't dead). My friend has a Kindle Fire (1st gen) & she has to plug hers in a couple times per day at least so the Kindle Fire seems no better than these tablets. (Plus the Kindle Fire is lacking some other features that this tablet does have, eg HDMI port, or SD card slot, etc)
So even after 2 tablets with defective HDMI ports, I am still considering one more attempt at getting one since the only other option even for just a basic e-reader would only save me about $15.
