The device itself is a real treat - it's light, easy to hold, and the screen is clear and vibrant. I've already mentioned that the performance is good, and I have to say also that there has never been any issue of the tablet getting hot, even when playing graphically intensive games. Overall I'm generally very happy with my purchase.
So here's a list of pros and cons:
- Thin and light
- Good battery life
- Great screen
- Can stand up to the odd bump (I dropped it accidentally from a couple of feet off the ground, due to forgetting that the charge cable was still plugged in, so it pulled the device out of my hand. There wasn't even a scratch on the device!).
- Really great browser support, including flash player.
- Ability to dock it and turn it into an netbook.
- MicroSD card slot
- The default keyboard isn't great, so you're better investing in a split screen keyboard app.Read more ›
Things to note:
1. Price: $400 is freaking amazing! I never bought an iPad or similar device because of the price. I almost did several times but I could never justify it due to the price. I wanted 64gb but there's no way I'm going to shell out 800+ for it. Companies pushing their entry level devices for $500 and up to $800+ for their higher level device are crazy. Yes, they will sell to folks who can afford it (or think they can afford it) but they are not the majority. There are so many of us riding the fence because justify spending that much money. At $400, the decision to buy is a lot easier.
2. Display: The screen is amazingly clear and crisp. No eye strains whatsoever watching 720p movies. Lots of online reviewers stated that the display is fantastic and I completely agree with them.
3. Horse Power: Playing 720p movies with no stutter or tearing. I haven't tried 1080p yet because I don't have a large enough micro SD card. My brother reported that he got bad stutters running 720p when he tested it but we attributed that to his slow micro SD card. I've also read some reviews online regarding stutters; however they were unclear on what media software being used or whether they were running the movies off the main memory, micro SD or streaming from their PC. I'm using RockPlayer and there is no trace of any stuttering.
Moving icons around or flipping screen is a bit slower than my brother's iPad. Nothing detrimental or annoying though considering the difference is only a fraction of a second. Since the Android desktop is way more complex than Apple's desktop of simple icons, I'm going to forgive Android for being a smidge slower.Read more ›
In short, this has to beat the other pads hands down. I have some friends who have Ipads, but My Eee Pad does everything their machine does just as well and it only costs $400. (Not to mention (again)that I can use SD cards, USB and it can use Flash on the Internet). When I get my keyboard dock (it has a built in battery), I'll be good for 16 hrs before recharging.
The downside, so far, is the puny manual, but playing with the machine teaches you just about everything. (BTW, if you use the YouTube App and want to go full screen, put your finger on the part of the screen thats playing, and you'll see the little 4 arrow icon to touch to get full screen.)
I'm checking out all the places near me that have wifi. Fun is fun!!
