I have a playbook and an Asus Transformer, which are both good in their own way and have served a purpose. Playbook is now my permanent alarm clock, asus has been requisitioned by the kids. Picked this up on sale with low expectations and was shocked. Great screen, you don't need 1080 on a screen this small. (it will output 1080 to a tv..). Xbox music was the best surprise. also it works great for browsing, social media, news, netflix, etc. Tested some .mkv video files via usb stick formatted NTFS and it played a 13gb file via the app mobile.HD player with no problem. I don't play alot of games but it has a decent selection. I found that it took a bit or work to get it set up but now its a pleasure to use. Did I mention a USB port, micro hdmi and microsd card slot? Or the incredible battery life? and I don't even have the highly rated keyboard case yet.. An underrated product in my view.
