    I have already done a review for the sister product which was shipped with Android 2.2, 4gb internal memory.
    Although an excellent tablet, it did have a couple of issues, the main one being a faulty G Sensor.

    Here I must praise unequivocally the service provided by Quality Stores, who took back the original unit, provided advice and suggestions, and recognising the faulty G Sensor was an issue, replaced it with this unit.
    It isn't to say the other was a result of a common fault, it is just that I feel that they deserve recognition for their support of the customer.

    So, how does this version of the tablet compare? It is excellent. If you are looking for something that does not try to sit in the £400 region and place themselves firmly in competition with the Ipad, with a huge choice of market apps both free and purchasable, then this is a wonderful buy, really.

    What do I use it for? I use the kindle App for downloading books both free and commercial. It is not brilliant in sunlight I have to agree, but indoors no problem what so ever.
    * Angry Birds....excellent
    * Music via headphones..excellent
    * Storing photos and displaying (temporary albeit)...excellent
    * Excellent capacitive screen
    * Browsing... excellent, although I would resist the temptation to use anything other than the built in Google search, it works, it works well, and is quick when you have a stable Wi-Fi connection

    My only issue is more of a local issue with Wi-Fi and Android (I have the same problem with my Android phone) in that it does not pick up and hold the connection very well, but at work where connection is better, it is quick. My laptop is good indoors, this and as I said, my phone, do not seem to be able to `hold' the connection very well.

    Before opting for this tab I read a lot of reviews, so was fairly clear what I hoped to find when I opened the box. For once, I was not disappointed.

    Confession first - I am no tech wizard. In fact I am a middle aged lady who likes to browse news sites, use e-mail, read books etc. Thus anything too technical was always going to be a challenge. However there were no such problems. Within a few hours using the small but well-written instruction manual, I had all my e-mail accounts working and was merrily discovering the joys of the Android market.

    Good points so far-
    Excellent response time - iPlayer for instance shows no hint of 'lumpiness'.
    Beautiful clear display and very sensitive touch screen.
    Free keyboard supplied with case make life so much easier when entering text. However on-screen keyboard is also straightforward.
    Good sound quality.
    No problems with wi-fi connection.

    Ifs and buts-
    Didn't arrive with Kindle app loaded, so had to download it from the Android market. This was a useful exercise in finding my way around my new toy, and taught me the hard way to use the machine's menu button to access options in an app. (I was looking for something on screen and getting very frustrated when it wasn't there!). Of course this was in the instruction booklet, as I realised later.

    To summarise, this is an excellent machine in terms of both its construction and performance. By picking and choosing from Android market it can be adapted for the needs of any user, be they a professional, a young social networker, or a middle aged amateur like me. It offers all you could ask at half the price of equivalent performing tabs. Great!

    After I received the first unit and spent a very frustrating week with trying to get things working properly I was ready to give up with this unit. The screen froze and was so insensitive that my finger tip hurt from hitting the icons. Customer and technical support were fantastic and talked me through various set up features ( I am used to an Iphone so Android was a bit alien), However after four days it was obvious that something was seriously wrong and the tech support guy told me to return the unit as it was obviously faulty. It was returned by hand on Friday and within 10 minutes I had an email saying a new one was being dispatched, this arrived on Monday morning and it couldn't have been more different, A dream to use although I need to get up to speed on Android and a very well made tablet. Sure its not an IPad but then its not an IPad price. I would recommend to anyone that wants something a little more basic for evryday use.

    Verified Purchase
    Obtained the Cambridge Science G7 2.3 from Quality Stores. This was delivered very quickly and upon unboxing and charging I was impressed with the build quality and especially the glass screen that was responsive and presented a good image.

    The problems started when I moved away from my router and found that the signal rapidly dropped and became unusable when I went downstairs - a distance from the router of some seven metres. As a Archos 43 Internet Tablet I presently use shows a full signal in the same location I unfortunately decided that the G7 was not for me. An added problem was that the user I got it for found it a little too heavy which is something to bear in mind if you intend to use it to read books.

    I contacted Caroline at Quality Stores and a return and refund was organised very quickly and efficiently by her and was done in a most understanding and polite way. Perhaps I was just unlucky and got a defective unit as others seem to be happy with their purchases. I would be willing to look at other models from Quality Stores in the future if only for the excellent customer service experience!
