Pros Relatively easy to navigate. Picks up wireless signal fairly well.
Cons Customer service is horrid. Tablet is heavy and the glass screen is VERY cheap and breakable.
Summary I have nothing but awful things to say about the cheap, very breakable screen on the Pandigital eReader. After our first one shattered without even knowing it happened, we went out and bought a second one only to have it happen again THAT NIGHT. Granted this time it tumbled off the nightstand, but it was only 30" down to a carpeted floor. When I called customer service they were not interested in helping me in any way. Not only that, but she said that because the glass is installed through a "third party vendor" they do not even know where to send it for repair - what a joke! It is a poor design backed by ZERO CUSTOMER SERVICE and I will NEVER buy another product from this company again. Apparently their motto is take the $$$ and run.
Pros Good for reading books, however being an android based device, nothing android will work on this. By the way, you can forget about technical support it's rediculous.
Cons Nothing android will work on this device. Customer service is virtually nonexistant and after 35 mins I felt like I was talking to "Peggy", even the SD card function won't work, it tells me to delete some applications, there is nothing on the SD card
Summary Overall, if you just want to read books or surf the internet, I suppose it is worth the money, however, I was expecting a bit more being an android based device. So far, I have not been able to find an android app that is compatible with the Pandigital Black. I will not recommend this to anyone and am looking to either the nook or kindle
Cons The only thing i don't like about it is i can't figure out how to get more games on it!
Summary I love my novel reader! i like how i can get online to check my facebook, read and play games all on one thing! it is a mini computer and love it!
Pros Just about none.
Cons For an e-reader, it is unreliable, and difficult to use.
Summary I wanted just for reading books. Sometimes it works, most times, not well. Turning pages, by swiping your finger, sometimes works, sometimes only after multiple attempts. This is a replacement model for me, as first one didn't work and company would only replace, not refund, even with a receipt. Now, it turns itself off if power gets below about half. So I can use it by never turning it off, and plugging it into power constantly. Sent an e-mail to customer service about this 2 weeks ago, and still haven't received a response. Customer service via telephone might be harder than getting through to the President! Stay away from this. I am going to get a real e-reader, not a complete disappointment like this.
Pros Light, Portable, Cheap, and workable.
Cons A Sluggish processer, 6hr battery life, and NO tech support makes this a bad buy for a serious tablet user.
Summary I would recommend this to someone young as a starter. It works ok for the price and does enough to be useful in some way.
