This was definitely a great investment. Used the Bill Me Later plan so I could buy for the family. WORD OF WARNING if you are looking for something to surf the internet then this is not for you. This is a bedside clock or kitchen clock that has to be plugged in. That aside, this has been a great investment. There are over 1,000 apps like Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, webcams screensavers, news and weather apps just to name a few. This little gadget has stopped the usual arguing over who's going on to the computer. The 7 inch screen is beautiful when watching Youtube and Amazon Videos. I like the fact that at the end of the day I can check weather and quick news, watch a video or play a game. I find myself checking out the San Diego Zoo Panda Cam to see how the Pandas are doing during the day. LOL! Overall I highly recommend it. My only concern is that I hope SONY continues to make new apps and doesn't leave everyone in the dust like they are known to do. I just want to stress again, this does not have an internet browser. This is not an I-Pad. This is more of a bedside companion.

The only use for my Dash that I have found is to play music. Other than music, it is a good clock and thermometer. It is mostly commercial and useless for checking email. I would love to have my money back.
