Anyone have any thoughts on this? I haven't seen this model on SD, seems like a pretty nice deal for a new quad core tablet.

Resolution isn't great (but better than some no-name ones) and only 1 gig of ram, but I'm sure it's fine for $70. You'll probably get a lot of people telling you to get one that costs twice as much instead, but if this was around what you wanted to spend, it seems good enough...

I'm going to take my chances... the 7" RCA dual-core I bought for $50 is going to be returned for its miserable screen with piss poor viewing angles.

Never mind... read the review and this turned me off:

"Screen
This tablet has a 7″ screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600. That screen resolution is not uncommon among sub-$100 Android tablets; I know of a couple other models with similar screen resolutions.

What sets this screen apart is that it is much lower quality than its competition.The backlight is about middling bright but lacks the ability to reach either dim or a flashlight level of brightness.

The viewing angle is narrow; you can turn the tablet (at most) 10% to 15% in any direction before losing color quality. The image will still be fully visible, though, even though the you might have trouble making out certain details because the color is off.

The screen is also unpleasant to look at; it has some undefinable quality that makes me want to turn my eyes away. I know that is not terribly specific but TBH this is the first time I have had this issue since playing with a 3d tablet at CES 2013.

And as I sit here writing the review, I have noticed that I can see a grid of fine lines on the screen. I’m guessing that this is the touchscreen component. That should not be visible, and the fact that it is tells me that this tablet suffers from a serious manufacturing defect – possibly due to the subcontractor cutting corners to reduce cost."

Get a sero pro refurb instead, you'll be glad you did, especially you want community support.

I got one for my 9 year old kid.

Specs are way better than other no-names under $100. I really wanted to grab some Nabi 2's but couldn't get my hands on one for $100.

I don't see why anyone would bother with a generic tablet for over 50$ when for around 90$ you can get a nook or kindle.
I would understand at around 50$, but if your gonna spend 70$ a 20$ difference is pretty small to get some pretty popular well performing non generic tablets!

Probably better to spend a little more for Nook, Kindle, Sero Pro or Nexus 7

I agree. I've gotten refurbed Nook HD and refurbed Hisense Sero 7 Pro for 70-80 bucks. They are very good tablets at that price. both my refurbs were like new, so maybe I've been lucky. I'm very impressed with the Hisense I just got. I prefer it over the Nook HD by a fair margin. I don't see any available now. But if I could find another for $80, I'd probably buy a few for gifts.

Makes sense. Even refurb kindle fire or nook hd would make a better deal.
