As a newbie on the tablet scene, I found this tablet to be a great value. My 8 year old got it for Xmas. Downloading apps from Google Play is a breeze; YouTube plays smoothly. My son has had no problems playing games. Sometimes, the tablet doesn't pick up the wifi at home unless it's being used in the room where our router is. But, overall, this is more than enough for a novice tablet user. The price is very reasonable as well.
