Is it junk or is it not? I took a chance on this product because it seemed to me that most of the negative reviews associated with it were not based on product quality (though who knows how long it will last), but on how the product failed to live up to the purchaser's expectations. And it is those expectations that I think are misplaced.

I bought this at CVS for $100+tax; MY expectations were that it could replace my Palm TX, which got a cracked screen in a mishap. The Palm TX was a handheld PDA with pretty similar specs - in terms of processing power, ROM memory, CF slot, etc. It was no speed demon on the internet - luckily, most sites would call up a page optimized for mobile devices. So you avoided most of the fancy stuff that bloats web pages down (or, depending on your POV, adds rich and exciting content). I think what helps foster unrealistic expectations is that this Sylvania unit looks like a laptop, not a handheld PDA. So people come to it with expectations that it will perform like a laptop. Instead, it runs Windows CE 6, which, I understand, was an OS designed for PDAs, handheld PCs, etc. So it is against THAT class of device that this product should be judged. So far, I am impressed with what you get for the money, and I'm having a bit of nostalgia in terms of configuring things. It's not that hard, but if you never had a Win98 computer, you may be spoiled in the sense that you've never had to go under the hood and change a few settings. I'm no expert - there are many settings that I don't understand at all - but I did remember enough to get it going.

I did consider a modern netbook (I have a regular laptop and desktop too), but I decided to take a chance on this first. Here's why. I learned that my 2.

this is a simple machine, to be sure. As the previous reviewer mentioned, the negative reviews come from people who apparently wanted a rolls royce for the price of a hyundai. I had very low expectations of this little machine..just needed to surf the web, really. It does that. It's slow. and some pages don't load. in fact, it doesn't support you tube anymore. This little machine should not be your only computer, it won't support all of your computing needs. However, I like that it's very portable, very simple and , frankly, disposable. if i lose it, or it breaks, I won't be crying. It has held up very well and has way outlasted the time period that I initially gave it.

just don't expect a fancy, fast computer. it's not. (duh!)

These Cheap 7-Inch Netbooks are suitable only for dedicated hackers!

Also known as MiniLaptops, SmartBooks, Netbooks, etc.: Don't waste your time on this device if you're not willing to open it up and hack it!

But if you're already stuck with one of these, read on, as help is on the way. And please feel free to copy and post this review elsewhere on the internet, for the benefit of all of us hapless 7-Inch MiniLaptop/SmartBook/Netbook users out there.

I picked up mine, for $ 10.00, at a yard sale, from a very frustrated owner. Preliminary research on this device quickly revealed that it, and its many cheap spin-offs, has a notorious reputation. And it's quite obvious that almost all of the retailers of these devices are going out of their way to be unhelpful.

My version has a WMT, ARM-WM8505 300MHz processor, with a Windows Embedded CE 6.0 operating system (despairingly called "WinCE"), was a precursor to Windows Mobile, and is not supported well any more.

But, on a more positive note: Here's a complete and informative 30 page User Manual for your netbook: Titled, simply, as "usermanual.pdf", the 8.8 MB file can be downloaded from:
- Google "files.chatnfiles" (an ftp site).
- Scroll down and elect the "Sylvania_netbook" folder.
- Select the "WinCE_6" folder.
- Download "usermanual.pdf".

And, while you're on that ftp page, be sure to download "winCE6freeware.zip", a 109.7 MB MegaPack freeware bundle.

Also, here's another user manual: Although it was written for the CnM book portable mini laptop (Windows CE 5.0), and devotes some of its content to ActiveSync (not possible on Windows CE 6.0), it's another helpful user manual out there for your netbook. The 4.

As other reviews mentioned, we struggled to get the online set up (Roadrunner wireless). We called the customer service number and within little time we were up and running. Though the rep was clearly ESL, he did a great job letting my husband know what he needed. If this is a problem for another reader, I'd say hang up, call again, and hopefully you'll reach someone else on the next go. For the money well worth it.

As someone else mentioned, more documentation would be helpful - e.g. what are the specs for SD cards? Is 8gbs to much? If I arbitrarily buy a standard SC card it'd be my luck is that it won't work for some reason.

Update Jan. 2011 - Spoke too soon. It ran great while it ran. It became a little buggy and I think it was a company rep who had my husband download a patch that was supposed to fix his problem. Instead of helping - he was no longer able to get online. Then, he was also unable to get anyone on the phone who could help him. There's not even an option to leave a message for a call back. The product comes with little documentation and no troubleshooting advice. After a few days of dealing with customer no service we took it back to CVS and set our sites on something more reliable. Reviewrs who said this is really a glorified smart phone are right except that it's not all that smart. Don't be conned by a low price - a cheap piece of junk is still a piece of junk.
