This is my first tablet and as I had not long bought a new laptop, didn't want to spend too much. I did a lot of research before settling on this one. It arrived in just two days and a query I had was replied to in under 10 mins - very good service. I wanted this to take on holiday and I did just that. It accompanied me around Cambodia and I didn't experience a single issue.
I bought a microsd card 16gb and put some tv programmes, movies, books and music on that. I downloaded Skype and a few free games. All worked perfectly. Wherever I went, I had no problem picking up the free wifi. I like the resistive screen, I know other people prefer capacitative. It is a little heavier than an iPad, I think but it is not as heavy as other tablets that I researched. The battery life isn't phenomenal and web pages take a little time to load. I am only used to a pc so that could be a general tablet thing, I don't know.
All in all, a great purchase.
