Pros I bought this tablet for my young children to use when the other is busy on the laptop. I was able to keep my two kids happy at the same time and I also used it when I only needed to quickly log on or search for music.
Cons 3 months of use only and I had to send it back to fix a bad charger that got really hot when plugged in. What a hassle calling in for warranty support and mailing all the credentials to wait even longer for the returned product! No camera either!
Summary The price is great for a temporary web browsing device but that's all. If I had to do it over I would have saved my money and paid a little extra for a tablet with a camera. Such disappointment.
Pros connected to net. when it worked
Cons 1st one worked for a couple of weeks then would reboot never starting up just shut self down.
2nd one would not even turn on.
3rd one still in waiting for product.. Hoping that the Coby stands behind product and more for customer support !!
Summary I returned the tablet and they sent another one, charged it and nothing ,,, the replacement would not even boot up and sent it back, bought this in May and figured I am out 200 bucks lesson learned .. Now if I get one to replace the others I will try the third time of course hoping for the best. I did request they test it by turning it on before they mail it to me,, never hurts to ask right!!??
Pros Price, versatility, able to add up to 16 (not 32) gigabytes of memory with micro SD. Coby's website has good video tutorials for the Kyros.
Cons Apps library freezes up. It really does take the end of a paper clip to reset tablet. Has to be within 300 ft of router or Wi-Fi source.
Summary A word about the resistive screen: use a stylus or the end of your fingernail to tap; use the flat of your finger to scroll. There is simply nothing else out there for this price that does everything this tablet can do. The 4 gigabyte ipod does not have expandable memory, and it costs more. This tablet is small enough to carry conveniently and large enough to view pictures and videos without eye strain. Odd comment, cnet, about the screen looking as though it's underwater; it's an intentional decorative effect that's only on the home screen. The Kyros undoubtedly does not perform like a Kindle or an IPad, but it was not a waste of my money, either. I can easily check and reply to emails, check my calendar and notes, download and read books, listen to music, browse through my favorite pictures, play some games, and more. Have had no difficulty with the operating system.
Pros not good buy something else
Cons get kindle fire i herd it's worth it
Summary not good, very disappointing
Pros none as compare to price
Cons Found defected ,camera and Charger/adopter are not working of brand new Coby MID8024. Very very Slow and Skype hangs when i try to login.
Summary I purchased brand new Kyros™ MID8024 Tablet few months ago, i surprised that Camera of brand new Coby MID8024 doesn't work and secondly it charger/adopter is also not working. I purchased a new adopter from Hong Kong. i am overseas and Company response was also disappointing. I found this tablet very very slow and I just wasted my Money. . How defected item passed from this QA test is another important question? Before buying this product, i advice you to read user reviews of COBY product and think many times.
