First of all, I'll admit that you need to be ok with the Android platform in order to truly enjoy this device. As far as I'm concerned, this tablet performs on par with the Ipad with the exception there is no 4G cellular capability. But then again, it's several hundred dollars less. To get around that issue, I'm just using my phone as a hotspot and away I go. I own both an Ipad 3 and a Nexus 7 and this device is formidable competition for either. I'm running video apps like Slingplayer and XBMC and I can say that both run flawlessly. No hesitation, skipping or degradation in the quality of the movies, TV shows, etc. at all. This device handles Blue Iris to monitor my video cameras on the go with absolutely no issues. I am not blown away by the quality of the cameras, but I don't use them that much so it's a non issue for me. All my banking apps run well. I am purposely not creating this review for techies because most of us just want to know how the device works as it relates to practical applications. Just as important I have used this tablet for navigating my work spreadsheets and with word processing documents and have had no issues. It's handy to be able to connect a wireless keyboard and mouse which makes it my portable computer on the go. I'm not much for games so with the exception of Solitaire, which again works great, I can't talk about that. The quality of the tablet is on par with much more expensive models. There seems to be a noticeable difference between this tablet and the Ipad when it comes to weight. Not at all heavy but heavier than the Ipad. Bottom line, if you need a tablet computer but don't want to spend a fortune on it, I'm comfortable recommending this little tablet. You won't be disappointed.
