I already have an iPad which is the best Tablet out there but it's only 16gb which is restrictive when storing videos and music. There are many tablets out there but reading the reviews I was put off by the negative comments.
When I saw the PlayBook at this price with 64gb of storage I couldn't quite believe my eyes. Most of the comments were very positive and with Blackberry name behind it, I had to have one.
The PlayBook arrived in an original Blackberry box with charger, USB cable and fabric cover. I could not find any marks or scratches on the unit.
The PlayBook was 75% charged and I was able to fully set up the tablet including a large software upgrade. Very pleasing.
My observations of the PlayBook are as follows:

Good Points:
Good build quality and feels solid and robust
Nice size with easy controls
Set up is simple and changes can be made quickly and easily
Screen is very responsive (up to iPad standards)
Easy to operate Android software

Areas to look out for:
The link to a PC is difficult both in terms of software and hardware. Please be aware of the following-
I could not get any Windows 7 computers to recognise the tablet. Windows XP and Windows 8 seem to be ok. However you must download the latest Blackberry Desktop software from the website. Do this before connecting the tablet. I am very suspect about the micro USB connector on the tablet. The unit comes with very clear warnings about attaching the cable the correct way up, otherwise the warranty is invalid. I can understand this as when it is connected correctly it feels very loose and flimsy. I had trouble with both XP and W8 not communicating immediately, this could be the connector or the software.
The Blackberry Desktop software is very flakey.

Mine arrived as a B grade refurbished, from Benthams other store Morgan Computers. It was in the box with a new unused magnetic charger and a new usb lead. It had obviously been kept in a case as the only marks on it were on the corners. I soon dealt with the tiny marks with a dab or two from my black indelible marker pen, it's now A grade. Comparing this with my wifes Nexxus 7 I prefer the Playbook, the on off switch and volume controls are a nightmare on the Nexxus, this is perfect, especially the feel and weight of it. In comparison with the Archos Android 4.0 pad of my own, that is going on ebay, that is not in the same league, and that is a half decent Android pad. I can understand Blackberry wanting hundreds of ponds for these when they first came out.I would however say that you have got to be a little computer savvy to get the best out of this tablet, you need to install google chrome on your pc and then the Blackberry Playbook add on/extension to get many but not all Android apps - there is a easy to follow video on the goodereader web site. My first effort to "sideload" an android app. was to install google maps and this went without a hitch and via wifi, perfect. There is however a very alive and kicking Blackberry app store for those not wanting to "play around". This tablet has HD cameras front and rear and stereo sound of good quality. It does multitasking like a grown up pc and the screen is superb - I need +2 for reading but I can read the smallest text on the browser without my glasses.It also connects to your TV via HDMI great for gaming or watching videos. You can use your Blackberry phone as a remote/trackpad/mouse. There is another bonus I have ordered a leather folio case from Amazon normally £39.99 but now £6.99. There is a new update for the o.s.Read more ›

ok the playbook
delivery from the seller was fantastic within 2 days
very well packaged
on opening and viewing i was really surprised how well built this is
i charged and did the update cool works great
the only problem was that
for some reason these do have a problem connecting through
the USB specially with windows 7 but that did not bother me as i dont like bb software on my pc
and i only wanted it for web email and so
HOWEVER if you do want it for music and films
the easiest way is over WiFi
it takes seconds to connect it and you don't need all the rubbish software
you just drag it into the folders
and its great
with a massive 64gb you can put loads on it
the sound is great and im very happy.

I am amazed by what this tablet can do and how easy it is to use. Several friends have purchased a playbook after a demonstration of this one. One friend aged 82 bought one. He has an HDMI cable to his tv and can now see to read for the first time in several years.

Brilliant, I've had this playbook for just over a week now and I haven't put it down yet, I do have only one issue, being used to an android phone I do find the playbook a little restricted but apart from that it's great.
