Not great, not bad. Don't depend on it as your primary mobile device. Jan 21, 2011
I like this tablet, and I keep it on my night stand for evening web surfing before I go to bed. Works great for casual use like that. I find that using the stylus is not necessary and do everything with the tips of my fingernails/thumbnails. No finger touches work, however, but I quickly got used to the method I now use.
But, when I go out, I still take my netbook. This device lets me keep the netbook downstairs where I use it most and still browse when I'm in bed without lugging anything around.
There's a good assortment of apps on it, plus a software installer (package manager, for those familiar with Linux) that comes with pre-installed. Limited apps of questionable quality, for the most part. Hint: Download Opera, and use the App Store built into that. Most of the apps are free, there's a much better selection, and heck, Opera is the browser to use anyway.
No Flash, as another user mentioned, but you can watch online videos with the included Skyfire browser, which can pull embedded video and play it in a new window. Works pretty slick, if a bit annoying to switch back and forth between it and other browsers.
There's also a Youtube app, which is handy. Beware that video really sucks the battery, which is OK for browsing (can last several hours), but runs down quickly with video.
Screen rotates. Keyboard works OK, but the enter key doesn't always work correctly, resulting in extra letters added to what you type.
Yes, it requires a microSD card if you want to install anything. Kinda chintzy, and really means that to make the tablet usable, you'll have to make an extra investment, but considering you can find this thing for around $150, it isn't a dealbreaker.
I've never used an Ipad. This is probably not a competitor in any sense of the word. Don't get me wrong, Android is one slick OS, and I'd like to see it optimized for a bigger screen, with a real touch screen. But, if you're wanting an Ipad, get that instead.
I tend to think of the Sylvania tablet as the successor to the handy Nokia tablets of a few years ago, but in a bigger, more usable size, at half the price. And, in that regard, the internet tablet for casual use is becoming ubiquitous, and that's a good thing.

Decent, but no iPad Jan 07, 2011
By M. Koo
I purchased the Sylvania mini tablet in December 2010, but it has a better processor than the Augen tablet.
Android 2.1 was optimized for smartphones with smaller screens, and is not optimized for tablet devices. The Sylvania mini tablet can do the following:
1) Has an accelerometer, but you can also use a setting to manual shift the screen orientation.
2) Can only use 16GB micro SD cards or smaller. The box even states 16GB micro SD cards, and not 32GB micro SD cards.
3) Use the stylus and not your finger, which is due to the problems of Android 2.1 on a tablet device.
4) Comes with a pre-installed music app and a picture/video app.
5) If you enable the third party install option, the following apps work without any problem: Angry Birds, Kindle, ASTRO File Manager, and Flash 10.1. I have problems with the ComiXology app.
6) Device has WiFi for web browsing, e-mail, and other apps that require it.
7) Two web browsers were installed, where links default to Skyfire instead of the Android brower. Skyfire does not like working with airport WiFi or other WiFi that requires an acceptance sign-in.
In general, the device works as my eReader, music player, and video player. If that's what you want, then this tablet is for you. If you want an iPad, wait until the better tablets from CES 2011 are released.

Perfect for a beginner Nov 04, 2011
I purchased this tablet for my 11-year-old who has never had any experience with a tablet before. It was easy to set up and works great. It is a little slow but not bad. All the negative reviews on this product are because people are too eager to compare this to an iPad or other higher end product. For the money you pay you get a solid product made for a beginner.

No iPad... but that's not what we bought! May 12, 2011
By Benjamin J. Broxterman
Recently purchased one of these to use at work (in a pediatric unit at a hospital) for some of the kids to play games on during procedures. Wasn't really sure at first what to expect, but the price was right so figured it would be worth a shot. It was a little tricky trying to get it set up initially to download apps, and we did have to purchase a microSD card for it in order to download apps thanks to the lack of internal memory. Was able to download the Amazon App store to the device, and have been able to download quite a few of the most popular games from that, and they work great! We browsing is easy & fast. The manual recommends using the stylus, but have found that fingertips tend to work just fine. The device is a great size for what we use (not too big, but big enough for little fingers). Actually, I like it well enough that I am going to get one for home, and one of our doctors is going to buy one for her kid after seeing ours in action! Had it toe-to-toe with one of the patients' iPads today, and when running the same games, this little thing held its own just fine. Overall, it has it's quirks, and it's not as smooth as an iPad, but for the price, I have been extremely impressed!

Waste of Money... Apr 11, 2011
By A. Lee
When you buy something like this you are saying "I don't want an Ipad or high-end tablet", I want something though that DOES work, is reliable for what I got it for....to browse internet, e-read, and do the basics it's advertisement claims it will. I opened the packaging...the sticker on the screen was stuck on there as if they did not want it removed...it was beyond difficult to remove the stickiness from the screen. No clear protector between screen and sticker. Then, the instruction book has 2 pages. That's it. I am one to read thoroughly through as best I can when I want to know how something I purchased works. I had 2 pages to read. So...I should be a genius with operating? nope. I had my computer guru brother help me navigate through it. Finally figuring out the basics. Still mildly interested in this product. The third day I went to use...and yes I charged as instructed.....I turned it on, and the screen remained FROZEN on the word Sylvania. I tried and tried to call for assistance...kept getting the SAME recording to try back later...finally got one that referred me to site. That was less helpful! Eventually went to YOUTUBE...so sad I have to go somewhere else to get help....I was successful ONLY in getting it to turn off! I reset it as instructed...and NOTHING...got a message saying something about not being able to show image or something do to not having SD card? Um, it did not come with one, and it read OPTIONAL..plus, what the hell needed saved? I hadn't gotten to use it yet. Took it back to store and fortunately got my money back...and read online elsewhere too that this product has MAJOR issues with overheating...yep, it does get very HOT..even after short usage. Overall, AGAIN, I didn't want a flat screen that was $500 + , but I DID want one for simple usage....this piece of crap doesn't come close to being worth $1 nevermind the amount I paid.
