5.0 out of 5 stars Got for 130 12 Nov 2011
At 130 that I paid for it, it is a bargain. Let's be clear this is NOT a gaming tablet, but it has a few little aces up its sleeve:
* Its lighter and easier to hold than Ipad, because there's plenty of space to hold it in two hands and no annoying buttons in the way.
* You put a USB stick in and play movies straight away
* You put a Micro SD card and play movies / images straight away (It also plays a decent range of filetypes and codecs too)
* The supplied browser is great for going around the Web and surfing
* You can read Ebooks and PDFs easily. It is especially good for comics.
* It makes a fabulous picture frame
* You can edit your Office files & emails easily
* It's great for reading news

There is a basic Webcam which is fun for the kids, but it is NOT good at games even Angry birds is slow and it does NOT have Flash and even if it did have it's performance would be very poor. You can get apps for it, but not officially from the official Google Android store. (Without a third party upgrade, but there are stability issues with that at the moment)

The bottom line is that if you want something to play movies in bed, do a little internet browsing, check your emails and actually be able to type on a screen without squinting then this is the tablet for you. If you want games for the same price then get a PSP, Nintendo DS or Android phone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great E-Book Reader, but slow CPU = bad gaming! 8 Sep 2011
By Peter Yang - Published on Amazon.com
ARNOVA 10 = inferior Single-Touch "Resistive" screen that is also difficult to read
ARNOVA 10 (B) = superior multi-touch ""CAPACITIVE" screen that is clear and easy to read

ARNOVA 10(B) is the LOWEST PRICE 10" CAPACITIVE TABLET with a WebCam as of (9-21-2011). It's a great alternative to the 7" Nook Color without a webcam.
ARNOVA 10(B) biggest weakness is its SLOW 311.27mhz CPU, which handicap this Tablet into a Giant 10" E-Reader, as it is too slow for sufficient gaming.
IF your expectation is humble (e-reader, web browsing, etc...) than you will LIKE this Tablet and it incredible value
IF you expect an IPAD2 for less than $200, look elsewhere, ARNOVA is NOT for YOU.

THE GOOD
+ PRICE - cheapest 10.1" CAPACITIVE touchscreen tablet + a web cams
+ THIN WIDTH - just 13.5mm
+ THIN BEZEL - makes this 10.1" tablet easy to hold
+ LIGHT WEIGHT - just 570g / 1.26 lbs, same weight as the more expensive Samsung 10.1" Tablet
+ USB Port - handy for photo + file transfer or side loading Android Apps

THE BAD
- SLOW CPU - Rockchip 2818 @311mhz will have you scream with anger
- 200mb RAM -install TASKiller Apps help to alleviate low memory problem
- Android 2.1 Eclair - on purpose to justified the more expensive ARCHOS 101 :(
- No HDMI out - on purpose to justified the more expensive ARCHOS 101 :(
- Lousy Interface

THE ADVENTUROUS WORK-AROUND

+ [Android 2.2 Froyo] - google "arctablet.com + froyo" for how to video
+ [Google Apps can be Install] - Marketplace, Gmail, Youtube, Voice, GTalk. Again, google "arctablet" for how to
+ Angry Bird - is playable "IF" you turn off background
+ Launcher Pro - highly recommend as a replacement for ARNOVA lousy interface

- NO SKYPE - skype can be install, but suffer "sign-in" error
- Marketplace need tweak to work - must clear GoogleServiceFramework and reboot to work

THE CONCLUSION
+ 5/5 STARS as an E-reader. Big Screen makes it easy to read, Lightweight = easy to hold
- 1/5 STARS as a gaming tablet
- 1/5 STARS for very lousy interface

+ 4/5 STARS "if" you replaced native interface with "LAUNCHER PRO"
+ 4/5 STARS "if" you replaced 2.1 Eclair with 2.2 Froyo
+ 4/5 STARS "if" you managed to install and fix Google Marketplace

Out-of-the-box experience SUCKS :(. But if you're willing to tweak and follow direction (arctablet.com), then you will LIKE this tablet. I used mine mainly as an E-reader, Web-Browsing, and Youtube Video and I am very please with the result. Everything else, however, is rather bad.

Tablet didn't have all the apps on. It ran very slow. There were no updates for it. It was a great size screen.
