For a budget tablet, this has actually been pretty good. The durability of it after my kids have dropped it multiple times is amazing. It is pretty fast overall, but beware on putting too many useless apps on it as it will slow it down considerably however that is not unique to this product as it is common among all electronic devices.
I like it. It is fast on the Internet, good colors, I can play music for about 14 to 16 hours on one charge. I have over 700 songs in it now and will double that soon as I make some play list. This is my first Tablet. So far so good, I got it because is is cheaper than another I pod, and easy on the eyes. Speakers are good enough in a pinch. I connect other devices to hear my music.
As my first tablet it would have been nice to have some sort of tutorial/welcome. Jellybean and chrome have been very user-friendly though, especially for the tech savy and those familiar with mobile devices. For a single core processor it's ran like a champ. It's handled everything I've thrown at it without much lag (mostly while having multiple tabs open in chrome.) Even that I'm not sure if the bottleneck was the processor or internet bandwidth. Seven inch form factor makes it very pocket friendly. I use it at work in a warehouse. It's held up just fine, but I've avoided any serious impacts with it. The battery lasts all day no problem, even when playing music the whole shift. It takes three hours to fully charge though (even with following the charging instructions.) I'm hesitant to try a different charger for fear of overloading/damaging the tablet. For a $150 tablet this is a good choice. Asus makes a good product and this is definitely meets their good standards.
