4.0 out of 5 stars decent value, 16 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The item arrived reasonably quickly. A couple of days playing has shown the following strengths /weaknesses as compared to a previous 7" Android and an Ipad in the family.

Pros:
- nippy/fast/responsive.
- nice screen. Not as good as iPad air, but surprisingly good and clear.
- lightweight. much lighter than iPad air, a bit lighter than Freelander PD10 7" android.
- very good for reading ebooks AMazon app and Google-play books with annotating etc..
- cheap and cheerful
- Good value stuff widely available keyboard-case and spare cables etc. Ipad stuff is good but expensive.
- bleutooth built in
- decent WiFi,

Cons:
- no separate power: just one micro-USB
- awkward android install
1. Some pics of chinese techies on the tablet.
2. People or Contacts app not loaded. Easily installed from google-play, buit strange.
3. Refuses to install Google+
4. Can only handle one User (with several google-accounts). I may figure out later how to solve this, but for now, it means I cannot share it with the kids and have my amazon and google-play with cards under a separate User.
5. cheap battery means not a match for the Ipad's uptime.
6. cheap cameras means hardly useable. OK for skype,
7. No small, stock android browser. Only th emassive Google-Chrome. Which does work well.
8. By default came with all security disabled and allowing external sources to install etc..

to be fair: many cheap androids have these types of "hacxked android" and cheap cameras. Not unexepected..

Generally speaking:
I found the 7" Android too heavy for reading in bed a lot. Then I started using my 6" phablet and mainly used that for reading. Now that I have used this 10" I love it for reading and annotating epubs in google-play books.
Reading docs, even with equations on google-docs is very nice.

Nice sound. Fairly effective at keeping noise out with their shape. Fall out slightly easier than hoped for, but not too easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good HD-Freeview receiver built in, 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item was delivered very quickly.

Pros:
1. Good HD-Freeview receiver built in. We had an external Freeview HD with our old TV, thios receiver is more sensitive and works well (channel switching for SD is quick, HD is acceptable, our old box switched slower between HD channels).
2. Picture quality is OK. Sound-quality is OK.
3. Size: nice and small. Slim. Not very heay.
4. Ethernet connection. Can play iPlayer catch-up TV without problems, allows activating a youtube account and has mobile versions of apps and a primitive / limited browser.
5. Has 1 SCART but also 1 3.5 mm video jack like in many camcorders and cameras with an adapter plug.
6. DLNA works OK but not all formats are playable.
7. USB-Recordng with just one receiver and without the ability to copy to a NAS has very limited use. But it does work.

Cons:
1. Does not work well with a standard USB-Keyboard. You can use the touchpad, arrow-keys and esc but any input screen will present the on-screen keyboard. This makes the applicability very limited. Any serious browser use will be impossible and we'll be limited to the on-screen keyboard which is fidgety and slow, but it does work.
2. Has only 2 HDMI ports.
3. The VGA connector is so close to the HDMI and scart cables that it is hard to uyse simultaneously. I used a VGA-PC lock as theft prevention, but it cannot be used with this TV.

I really like the TV. It appears to be very good value.
I prefer to use a PC + HDMI connection for most catch-up TV, media-use etc. because it is much easier to use and can do more, but the added smart-features are nice enough. I would prefer a decent linux, android or Windows implementation than another limited use OS that is mainly a small android adaptation.

additional note after a month of use:
The youtube application can be used with an android phone to watch paid for movies on youtube.
