A decent tabet
I purchased this Tursion tablet as a present for my son's eighth birthday. I did a very thorough review of tablets to find this one as I did not want something expensive (iPad), fragile (iPod Touch), or overly-proprietary (Kindle, Nook, Nexus). While it does take some time to learn how to navigate the screens and actions (it is NOT as intuitive as an iPad), it is PERFECT for my eight year old. I have loaded movies and music on the SD Card--everything plays fine, no problem. I have downloaded content from Google Play (Angry Birds, Turbo Grannies, Wreck-it-Ralph, Kindle, Nook, etc.)--all apps work, no problem. Now, the speaker is certainly not great; but for better sound, use headphones. Also, the WiFi antenna range is weak, at best; but, I don't not plan on having my son accessing the Internet in his bedroom any time soon. The touchscreen is not great, but I am using a screen protector. Additionally, there's not a perfect case that matches the buttons and jacks for this tablet. I just purchased an generic folding cover that is adequate. Finally, on the downside, the charger is VERY unique to this tablet and cannot be misplaced or easily replaced--so keep it close. I have NOT used the tablet for streaming movies (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon), so I cannot comment on that function. But, as I mentioned, the wireless range is minimal, at best. So I would imagine that to get good streaming quality, you would have to use the tablet in the same room as your wireless router. I have also NOT used the HDMI connection. Overall, for my son, this is a great product. I would definitely recommend it to folks wanting to purchasing a tablet for their young kids, but not wanting to spend a fortune.
