I purchased this tablet for my father who is a senior and not really tech savvy. For this reason, I did not want to spend a lot. This was Perfect!. Once we set it up, he was able to use it instantly and has not put it down yet. The only issue is the screen resolution. With his eye, a larger screen would have been better. Overall great product. Now my son wants one.
I had to return this tablet for 1 main reason: storage issues. First, hardware wise it was solid and better than a Mid A13 I had tried earlier. I mainly wanted this for kid's apps and they ran fine. No flash video support (but that's ok, I didn't want them watching videos on it). The problem is with the way the set up the internal memory. They set 2 partitions, one for the system and some app storage and the 2nd for data and apps that can me moved to sd cards. So basically you don't have the whole 8gb for apps (there are still many apps that do not allow youto move them to an sd card, even an internal one). Since the sysyem sees a big chunk of the built in memory as an "internal sd card" it would not let me move apps to the 32gb sandisk microSD card I installed. It saw the card, but would not move apps to it. So if you wanted this mainly for emails, web surfing, photo or video viewing from an sd card, reading pdfs or ebooks (again from a sd card) it would be fine. But not for heavy app usage. Oh and amazon app store was not pre installed and was VERY flaky, worked sometimes but not reliable.
OK, for $69.00 what do you expect? A low end tablet of course but still I was expecting at least a firework or two in order to make me keep it. It freezes up worse than Wisconsin during the winter. Hard to read a book when you have to wait 30+ seconds for the tablet to turn the page. Well enough if you want to get this as a gift for an elderly person, I'm sure they'll appreciate it.

truth with humor
"It freezes up worse than Wisconsin during the winter."......super funny...thank you for your honesty and candidness!
I ordered two of these for Christmas gifts for my kids. The tablets worked as expected when setting them up. The only real complaint I have is that I found things to move very slowly, at least compared to an older version iPad we have. It can take tens of seconds or more for apps and webpages to load. In retrospect, I would probably pay more to get something that moves a bit faster. However, for the price, I think performance is certainly reasonable. Will have to wait until after Christmas to see how these hold up in terms of durability.
I didnt like it at all I bought it to watch sports and maybe a show sometimes it would not let it play ..It just kept shutting off I guess it was not powerful enough for what I had to do..I was not happy and I took it back.I couldnt even give it to my son who like to watch youtube shows because it wouldnt stay on... : (
I have tried to have more contact with my children and this device had SKYPE on it which I thought was great and although slow at times for the price you can't beat keeping in touch with those you love.
I bought this tablet for my hubby. He is new to technology and I didn't want to spend a ton of money on something he may decide not to use. I, however know a little bit more about tablets and was pleasantly surprised in my dealings with this tablet. Screen navigation was pretty zippy and didn't start lagging after some app downloads. The reason he wanted me to return this item was because he wanted a bigger screen to read. Besides that I believe we would have kept and relatively enjoyed this tablet.

Review 300 for Nextbook 7" Tablet 8GB Memory
NOT AT ALL WHAT I EXPECTED
By AVeryUnsatifiedCustomer ,
I WAS LOOKING FOR A TABLET THAT WAS REASONABLE AND HAD GOOD REVIEWS TO PURCHASE FOR MY TWO SONS AND 2 NEPHEWS. SO I CHOOSE THIS ONE I PURCHASED FOUR A WEEK BEFORE CHRISTMAS AND I RETURNED MY TWO SONS ALREADY. IT WAS WORKING FINE AT FIRST BUT ABOUT A WEEK AGO IT'S STARTED TO HAVE ISSUE WITH THE SENSOR AND THE G CALIBRATION. I TRYED TO FIX IT EVEN RESET THE TABLET BUT IT JUST CREATED MORE ISSUES. SO I DECIDED BEFORE IT GOT TOO LATE TO GO AHEAD AND RETURN IT TO THE STORE EVEN THOUGH I PURCHASED IT @ WALMART.COM. I HAVEN'T HAD ANY COMPLAINTS FROM MY NEPHEWS. IT'S SEEMED LIKE A NICE TABLET OVERALL UNTIL IT STARTED TO MESS UP. SO TO ALL READING THIS IF YOU TABLET HAS ANY ISSUES JUST GO AHEAD AND RETURN IT TO THE STORE CAUSE IF YOU RETURN IT BACK TO NEXTBOOK YOU MIGHT NOT SEE A REPLACEMENT TABLET EVER. LOL
