After buying it and finding out that it is useless, i decided to use it at least as an e-reader, where after only 5 months i got the big surprise!! the unit is DEAD! when i contacted the manufacturer for repair, they said i have to pay for the repair (1/3 of the unit's price actually) and that the unit has only 90 days warranty! at this point i prefer to recycle it :)I don't recomend any one buying this thing!

This tablet is not at as I expected and simply does not have the capability of being much more than a paper weight. The battery dies very quickly, graphics are poor and it simply can not run many of the different programs and apps other tablets can.

We bought this tablet in Summer 2010 for $99.99. Happy to say it's still alive and kicking. Ours has seen its share of bumps and bruises with a 3 year-old taking possession of it in the last year. Android Market means free games and that's pretty much what we use it for. The sound is a little thin, and the unit is a bit slow at times, but it was understood when we bought it this was not a $500 iPad! The battery is showing its age now and it lasts for less than 3 hours of toddler use, but we use it quite often take it in the car with the 12V power plug.

Ours came with the two power adapters 120 V home and 12 V auto, a USB cable, a basic manual, a faux leather travel case and stylus pen which we lost ages ago. We have a 4GB microSD car with music and videos loaded all the time. If nothing more than a glorified Android MP3 player, this does what it does okay and the low price make for a good introductory tablet.

Has it been a good unit? For basic operations--Yes!

Great Tablet, Great Price (Period) June 4 2011
By me! - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The first thing that I notice about Apple products is the beauty, and second thing that I notice about Apple products is the cost. If I was swimming in money, I would still think twice about buying a product that is as expensive as an Ipad. So when I started looking at alternatives, I was surprised to see that the KLU was really affordable, and with a fast processor, 4GB of storage, and a Micro SD card reader (Micro SD up to 32GB no less), I thought that the price for the product was more then reasonable. Once the tablet got to my house, I didn't waste any time trying it out.

No Android Market, no word processor, no spreadsheet. OH NO! Did I make a mistake?

Not really, it still has WiFi, it has a video player that plays movie formats that a lot of tablet computers don't, it has a sweet audio player, and it has an E-reader. I guess I can live without the rest...but wait, the Curtis website [...] has a firmware update that puts several applications on your tablet, including the Andriod Market. I also discovered [...], which also has several android applications ready to download. Now I have everything I wanted in a tablet, and it cost me hundreds of dollars less then an Ipad. I am so happy with my purchase, that I put a second one in the cart for my daughter's birthday, who has been bugging me everyday to play with mine ever since I got it.

The bottom line. If you want a tablet computer that has more potential then you can imagine, at a cost that will not require you to rent your downstairs bedroom out to a strainger, then this is a good tablet to get. But you decide for yourself what is best for you. Happy hunting.

Very good Product and Great Price ! April 14 2011
By Enhancer, Boston, MA USA - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I am very happy with this purchase. Product arrived in great condition. Has a nice screen and the battery lasts for days between charges, it also has dvi port, micro sd slot, usb port, and has good network connectivity. For wireless I can be at the opposite end of my house from my WAP and still have full bars. I mainly wanted to use as an ereader and to watch youtube videos, and as a occaisional internet browser, but want to eventually install flash so that I can go to some sites where I have access to online classes. This unit is the KLU Android Tablet manufactured by Curtis International. Has a fast processor. Came running version 2.1 and has some useful installed software already onboard. Version 2.1 is a good operating system and newer than you will get with many of the other Androids out there for sale currently at this price as of April 2011. This Tablet can be upgraded. The currently installed Android 2.1 version does not run Android market at this time so you will need to download any Android packages you want and copy apk files to a micro SD card in order to install on your Klu Android Tablet. This is not that difficult. There is an apk installer program on this tablet which is nice, it also has a nice browser, you can watch Youtube videos, and more. I have since installed Kindle, Kobo, and Nook and some other stuff on this tablet. The kindle software does have some issues running on this tablet and sometimes your purchased kindle books will force kindle to close and you may in some cases have to re-register, this also happens on other tablets, and you must download the book you purchased again several times until it finally runs again. Yes that is annoying but that may be more of an issue of the 2.1 Android OS, or it may be the Kindle software I am not sure. My plan is to at some point in the future root this device and upgrade to another version of Android such as 2.2 or 2.3, and eventually 3.0, all of which should run on this Tablet. I think overall it is a good unit for the price and I highly recommend it.

Great little tablet for the size and money Aug. 30 2012
By CDH - Published on Amazon.com

This is one of the best 7" tablets I've held and used. Nothing about this tablet comes off as cheap, it is extremely well built and yet very light. It's perfect for anyone who doesn't want to get caught up in Apples (have to purchase everything through us and can only run what we approve attitude).

PROS

Extremely well built unit, and will last quite a long time and take quite a bit of abuse. Curtis is a US company so the quaility of the tablet is much better than those cheap China knockoffs out there trust me (I've purchased a 10.1" Superpad II Flytouch and it's total crap, not even on Amazon for sale anymore!).

Load your AVI, MPG, MKV, MP4 movies ontop this little guy (via USB flash drive) and it will play them perfectly with no need for a subscription or online service to view them through.

Load MP3 songs (via USB flash drive) and play them anywhere anytime. 1000's of android apps avaialble.

Surfing the web is great as long as you install Skyfire or Dolphin web browser as the included one isn't very good. Personally I love Skyfire and hope they come out with a browser for PC's as well it's really nice!

CONS (lets face it every device has them!)

This tablet is not a gaming tablet, it will play any of the puzzle type games or card games etc... but you are not going to be playing Angry Birds, or any of the HD graphic type games on this little guy (they will install but they just run way too slow). Face it you get what you pay for, you can expand this little guy quite a bit (32GB MicroSD Card, 32GB USB Flash Drive) but it still won't handle the high end games due to the ARM8 processor it has. Your going to need the ARM11 to handle those types of games.

Also the worst feature this tablet offers is that the speaker is located on the back side (bottom) of the unit... Very, very bad idea on the manufactures part. The speeker is quite loud, however with the sound traveling away from the user rather than towards it can be hard to hear at times, however using headphones fixes this problem and the headphones sound is 2x louder than the built-in speaker.

SUMMARY

Overall, this is a great tablet for the price. Easily the best 7" tablet available for it's price range. Perfect for playing puzzle/card style games, and watching any Movies or TV Shows or playing Mp3 music. It even does a great job as an ebook reader via (Kindle App), much better than the older Amazon Kindle.

Battery life lasts for about 3 hours of constent use (watching movie, playing game, surfing the web) and it fully recharges in about 3-4 hours tops.

Great for the price June 18 2011
By L. Leach - Published on Amazon.com

Upon receiving the device, I immediately followed the upgrade firmware instructions on the manufacturer's website. Generally, the device is good as an entry-level for those wishing to enter into Android devices. The memory is sufficient for the running of one foreground application and 2-3 background applications (like a memory monitor, Scanner Radio and Twitter). Apps upgrade via Android Market; and other markets are installable (that are compatible with Android Eclair 2.1). It is recommended to purchase/install a MicroSD card in the device, as some apps seek an external card to store data. The Wi-Fi is not very strong, but it does perform well with a reading of above-Fair signal, your results may vary with access point and device conditions.

Those selling devices often confuse processor, memory and disk space: this device comes with an 1GHz processor (divided between programs [600 kHz] and Video [400mHz]), 256 MB of Random Access Memory and 4GB of on-board hard-drive space via an on-board flash drive, with the ability to add up to an additional 32GB via MicroSD (for a total of 36GB hard-drive space), plus more via the USB host feature. It's like having an early 21st century PC in your pocket/purse.

I have personally noted that the screen calibration tool sometimes appears at odd times when hitting the ESC or MENU buttons (usually with programs that End-Run by hitting those buttons); and once caused a need for a reset after freezing on calibrating the 3rd position while market-installed Battery Dr. was running). Sometimes, the device doesn't not power on, resetting or plugging in the device fixes this. USB Debugging and Non-Market installs are enabled by default; that's not so good for security with new Android users. There are two Youtube players available by default, one appears to be the US version (that upgrades via the Android Market), and the other the Hong Kong version that upgrades via apkok.com; this is redundant, as both appear to load similar content by default. The speaker is on the rear of the device, and sound is low if the opening is covered; if using a Tablet case, it's position should be taken into consideration. The battery appears extremely erratic in its readings at first, being sure allow a full discharging and full recharging of the device is suggested for resolution. The battery appears to have a life of 2-4 hours in use and 8-10 hours in screen standby (longer when Power Off is used).

The USB port, HDMI-out and USB Micro port connections are a plus. All-around, the Curtis LT7028 7" MID Android 2.1 4GB is a good device. The screen is completely usable without the included, short stylus, but it provides greater precision. The trackball is another Human Interface Device available for added convenience. I have successfully used USB thumb drives and keyboards with the device in USB Host Enabled mode. Definitely recommended for users seeking a secondary SOHO device, something for the family to use on a WLAN at home or vacation, a device to quickly to place video on a full-screen display, or corporate WLANs needing WI-FI Android software for their employees moving about the Network campus!
