Plus points - good display, battery life, responsive display etc.
One thing - check you have ICS 4.0.4 - this adds Google Play Store and fixes WiFi sensitivity and conflict handling issues.
A couple of niggles with the older version (4.0.3):
1. The built in app store is awful but if you go to Yarvik's forums there is a thread on adding the Google Play app store which gives you access to everything.
2. WiFi reception is poor - my laptop finds 6-7 networks, the Zetta finds 1-2.
It can play a MKV with untouched Blu-ray video smoothly, comes with all needed accessories and I have an iPad case which fits.
Overall, a very good buy with version 4.0.4.

Purchased mine for mums birthday gift just under £100 off an amazon seller and overall it was pretty good.

Comes with loads of ports for versatile connectivity to and from other devices. the 3D TV support was an interesting feature but unfortunately i dont have a 3D TV to test it out on.
For the basics of what an android tablet can do it does everything pretty well. The only thing i found that it didnt do so well was with wifi connectivity. Im not a novice with technology so i identified the glitch and worked around it pretty easily; which was that it would not connect to the wifi network if the battery had completely died AND it was charging and switched on. To work around this i charged the battery to about 10% to be on the safe side, switched it off and removed the charger. switched it back on and it connected to my wifi network after which i plugged the charger in and it worked seemlessly.
the 9.7inch screen is a wierd size but it does suffice because i couldnt afford the same specs at that price with a 10inch screen.
It is a little embarassing when mums friends come around and ask "what make is it?" and the answer is "Yarvik" LOL. However the tablet itself with good quality screen brushes off the strange make/name.
Back camera isnt the best quality in normal lighting conditions however front camera i found was excellent which also +1 for value for money as you wont get a tablet similar to this with both front and back camera for this price.
sound from the speaker was a let down i must say. it was too sharp and not loud enough however use of headphones can curb this.
the battery life is probably the biggest minus point in this product as it takes ages to charge about 8+hours and can last maximum of 2hours on full battery with constant normal use i.e. facebook, games, youtube.

i have heard it can be upgraded with jellybean (it comes with ice cream sandwich) which im going to try and do soon when i have time...

overall its good value for money but not perfect as you would expect because its not a highstreet/mainstream model/make...
good for normal use though dont expect 5* quality

its okay

I bought this tablet about a week ago. the tablet looks amazing! does not look cheap. the screen has amazed me as no matter where you are you can see it. the baattery life is very good so far and the google play has worked beautifully. I HIGHLY RECONDMEND THIS TO ANYONE! it gets 4/5 as it can be slow if you overclock the product.

This tablet is very slow and unresponsive.
The browser is particularly bad and the apps crash regularly or don't run at all.
Not recommended.
