I got two of these a few months ago. I put one in my 8 year olds room and one in my kitchen on a swing wall mount. they operate ok. Fairly slow but generally they get there. My son watches a lot of youtube videos and skypes his best friend on it a lot. Pandora crashes quite often and I find myself having to re-boot them somewhat frequently. Not a terrible buy for the money, just be aware these things are not super fast and flashy.
Bought one of these a few months ago to be “The Kitchen Tablet” for recipes and music and what-not.
For that purpose, it’s 9.5 on a 10-scale. The display is big and bright and doubles as an awesome photo-frame when idle. Navigating my DropBox to get to my recipes and menu plans and grocery lists is a breeze.
It isn’t really fast, and it has an older, non-upgradeable version of Android. And, once, I needed Tech Support and ViewSonic was quick and helpful in their engagement.
Overall, I’d buy it again, with eyes wide open on it’s limitations.
1GB ram for android is very slow. I don’t know why they don’t add 1 more ram for the system and increast the price for about 20 dollars. stupid company.
1GB was pretty standard for this tech at the time. It does look like the device can be rooted, so there’s likely some optimizations that can be performed to improve speeds. There may even be a custom rom available for it, but the internets did not reveal that to me in the 8 seconds I took to find out.
“And if you agree to accept this assignment, er, product, and you are caught, ViewSonic will disavow any knowledge of it. This unit will self-destruct in 3…2…1…”
Do a bit of looking around about this orphan that was sold with at least two names.
Might be great for you…or not.
Pretty much the same as the Acer unit sold last week, out of date version of Android, no updates available, slow & underpowered, etc. Very limited in what it can do, probably OK for kid’s use. Many games do not rotate & are not usable.
As I pointed out in the thread for the sister device, this is irrelevant.
As we saw with the miserable Lollipop update for the first-gen Nexus tablet, OS updates can do more harm than good. Google ended up posting instructions to roll those tablets back to Kit Kat. You’re much better off running the OS that these devices were designed for.
And because all of the apps are in the Play Store and frequently upgraded, updating the OS just doesn’t matter much anymore. Without one in front of me I can’t verify, but if my Honeycomb Xoom can run the latest Maps, Keyboard, Gmail, and other apps, chances are pretty high that this can too.
Unless you can say why updating the OS is important for this particular model, it isn’t important at all.
O M G!!1!! IT’S NEW
Guess what!?!? We made a mistake in the listing!
THIS BABY IS NEW!!!
That’s right. Brand spanking new! Enjoy its virgin beauty!
Dont buy this. You will be sorry. No support for upgrades and very slow. You also will not be able to run a lot of the apps due to 4.0. Get a HP Slate Pro 21…make sure you get the slate. Much faster and appears to be supported better.
Very slow and runs android 4.0 not 4.1 or 4.2 thus not compatible with allot of today’s apps. Mine can’t run a security app for cameras and when it runs it do e s at 10 frames per second
So with that logic…lets install DOS 6.0 on every workstation. Updates
