Easy to set up
Right size for my cabinet
Screen is great. Battery last a long time. Fast. I hate to say this, but this is much better than the Surface RT (Tegra 3). This processor does the job. Night and day difference. Perfect size and play
Does what is says. I bought this as a very light tablet for watching videos and as a very light portable computer for graphic design use. It runs fast for an atom cpu. And i was able to run PPSSPP emu
Good performance
Not sure if i like the button for opening
Speaker is a little weak. Needs one on both sides
Now I knew about these issues before I bought the Tablet. But there is only one mini usb port. No hmi or plain usb ports here. Jsut one. And it is also used for charging. So you can either connect to
