Utter garbage - DO NOT waste your money.
on 22 March 2013
Purchased March 2013 via Amazon. Product was sent to the US after being set up and tested in the UK. It worked fine for 6 months until eventually.....
November 2013 update: OK, we have some issues now.
The USB port on the keyboard has died, it began by being selective on what cable I used to run it on then stopped working altogether. The port on the main unit is also heading in the same direction so pretty soon, no power = no tablet.
The speakers also have died and now it's only possible to hear anything with headphones.
GET SOME PROTECTION! Fit a screen guard as absolute minimum. The glass didn't scratch but one small drop and the entire screen now resembles a spiderweb which has (unlike other touchscreen products I've used) completely killed all touchscreen functionality. The glass is not at all tough, which was unexpected for a portable device that at some point was bound to take a tumble! Now, to use the tablet, I have to have the keyboard attached at all times. This is not a robust product in the slightest - be aware and be gentle with it!
December 2013 update: The tablet is dead.
1: The USB Port on the keyboard was first to go, followed by the one on the main unit stopping all ability to recharge the tablet.
2: Not a major issue with the recharging though as the battery stopped holding a charge anyway meaning it couldn't be run except via mains power...see point 1, as mains power is supplied via the USB ports.
3: The sound card died, originally allowing only use by headphone but soon after, stopping altogether.
4: The keyboard cover fell apart from no more than general use.
Granted the unit was dropped once - that drop (of 15") shattered the screen and killed all touchscreen functionality - it could still be used via the keyboard though, but this unit is NOT robust for a product supposedly designed as portable, in construction or in general use.
Were the unit still in the UK I would be returning it and demanding a full refund! It's awful! The worst investment I have made in ages!
I absolutely do not recommend this tablet!
