WARNING!!!!!!! Important to read!!
I purchased TWO of these tablets, from this exact link. One from seller zip2012, and one from seller Deal-Hunters.
On October 15th 2013, I purchased a NEW PLT7044K ProScan tablet from seller zip2012, in white, and it arrived to me in perfect condition on October 21st 2013. I had zero problems setting it up, installing apps from APTOIDE (Google Play is not compatible with this tablet), and connection to my Wifi (we live full time in an RV and use the park RV towers) was effortless and quick. I gave this tablet to my 13yr old daughter for her 13th birthday. She loves it.
USING THE VERY SAME LINK I used to buy the first tablet from here... On October 30th 2013, I purchased a NEW PLT7044K Proscan tablet from seller Deal-Hunters, in black, and it arrived to me in perfect condition on November 5th 2013. I purchased this one for my son's 14th birthday, which is coming up very quickly. I opened the package right there at the post office, turned on the tablet, and immediately noticed something was wrong. The volume button was in the wrong place, and when the tablet come on, it had a "dead android" laying on it's back with it's belly panel opened and a yellow caution triangle over it with a black exclamation mark inside. I tried to look through the manual to see what this meant, but found nothing about it. It was stuck like that for roughly five minutes before it finally turned itself off and back on again. Once it booted back up, it SEEMED fine. So, I took the box and tablet home. When I got home, I turned on the wifi since the battery was showing 89% already on it. The Wifi turned on, but refused to find any signals around me.
I asked my daughter for her tablet to compare against, and still hers had great reception to the towers and worked fine, but my son's wouldn't. So I clicked on the tablet's information to see what it said and found that under the Model information, it said MID704. The STICKER on the back of the tablet, however, said PLT7044K-B. So, the sticker was right, but the software installed was entirely wrong.
In the end, the first tablet I got shipped to me was actually the WRONG tablet, still... it should have been the PLT7044K, but I got the PLT7045K (which I love, so don't get me wrong), and the second tablet I ordered should have been the PLT7044K, but I got a MID704 (whatever that is), which didn't function with any wifi connections, what-so-ever.
Worse yet, when I contacted Amazon about this issue via chat, their customer service tried to offer me a partial refund of $28, when I'd spend $87! I disconnected the chat immediately and called the number to explain it all to them. Once they got into my order history, they immediately understood me and refunded my money right away, plus sent me a shipping label to return the product. In a couple of days here, they're going to call me back to assist me in getting the RIGHT tablet shipped to me, and this time I am going BACK to the seller zip2012.
My point in this all? The experiences that each person here is writing about on how the tablet performs depends entirely on if they even GOT the right tablet to begin with. Carefully check the sticker on the back of the product. Check the PRINTING too on the back. Also, go into the setting and check the software installation information. If they don't all say the same thing - YOU GOT THE WRONG PRODUCT! This can make *ALL* the difference.
Apparently, from seller to seller, the product will vary and be different, if not entirely wrong. So... the one I got and love is the PROSCAN PLT7045K. The wifi/air card on it is great. The tablet functions perfectly for someone who's never owned one and needs a starter tablet for a good price. My daughter's tablet let's her read ebooks, draw with SketchMobile, play fruit ninja's, use Stylicious (an app that allows her to document her clothes and organize them), uses the weather app, Google Voice, texts to friends on it, uses FB on it, plays Candy Crush on it, types out stories and diary entries on it, listens to music on it, keeps her photos on it, creates lists and to-do tasks on it with the Color Notes app, uses DuoLingo app on it to study her spanish, uses Khan Academy on it in the browser to do her school work, plays Virtual Families 2 on it, plays the piano on it using the MyPiano App, plays Angry Birds Star Wars on it, and the list seriously just keeps on going. For a 13 yr old girl, that tablet is absolutely everything she needed and wanted. We're not disappointed.
JUST BE SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT ONE BEFORE YOU REVIEW IT AS A BAD PRODUCT! I really, seriously, feel like a lot of the bad reviews coming in are from folks getting the wrong version shipped to them and they're not even realizing it. Honestly, had it not been for the second tablet that I ordered for my son? I'd have likely never even of noticed that the first one wasn't even the right one either!
