I pre-ordered this for my wife mostly to use as a Kindle E-reader as I figured the tablet would be slow and the display would be less than impressive. I was wrong. What a bargain this little beauty is! This model cost $49.00 but it comes with ad’s displayed on the lock screen when your tablet is dormant. Once your screen times out, they disappear. You can pay $15.00 up front to get an ad free version so I assumed to unlock the tablet I’d have to spend 15 to 30 seconds looking at an ad for Amazon Prime, or a product from the daily specials section of Amazon.com I abstained from paying for Ad removal and was pleasantly surprised to find that the ads are only on the lock screen and that as soon as I unlock the tablet they disappear immediately.

What a great tablet, it has everything you need to stream video, play games, take notes, draw/sketch, read books and much, much more. The screen size and resolution is not a big deal either, compared to other tablets most people can’t really tell if they’re watching 720p HD or standard definition on a 7in screen. On a bigger screen the higher resolution does make a difference but not so much a 7in screen.
