It may seem cheap but....,
This review is from: Elonex 10" eTouch Pad - 1000ETYes, this may be a steal among tablet devices in terms of price, but after owning mine for a couple of days, I must say... it really is infuriating.
I will start with the overall design... It looks very IPadish from a distance, but upon close inspection, it is quite cheap in terms of materials... Plastic casing, and the screen is very susceptible to glare, in any circumstance, unless you are in complete darkness..... "Ok" you may think..."but its dirt cheap!".... That is true! And that is why I was drawn to this tablet. But even by 8 year old laptops running windows vista standard, this tablet is slooooooow.... i really cannot describe how painful it is just to open facebook and check your notifications or to type anything in google search, it is truly dreadful.... I am actually struggling to think of anything that would make this tablet a worthwhile purchase... I had copied some movies onto the SD card (which was a problem in itself... BEWARE x64 BIT OPERATING SYSTEM USERS, THIS TABLET IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH x64....sigh)but they were not bad... a little jittery, but watchable... but honestly, that is all i can think of that this tablet is worth.. The battery life is awful, 2 hours MAX if you are actually using it... no community AT ALL... after searching the net for hours, i get the feeling I am the only owner of this tablet in existence... Notepad causes a black screen, Messenger doesn't work, it gives errors in Chinese... I haven't found one single game on the android market that runs smoothly AT ALL....
It just goes on and on
