Good Find & Good Price.

B&H also has the same tablet with no tax for most everyone.

1200 x 800 would be this thing's downside. On a 10" tablet, that is going to be very noticeable.

1280x800 on 10.1 tablet = e-waste!

Hmm, I've got a couple of 720p tv's with 22 and 32" screens and everything looks fine to me. So it would seem a 10.1 screen would be fine with this resolution. At least to my eyes. JMHO.

How does this compare to a nexus 10

Thanks OP might get one. That resolution is fine unless your hobby is to count pixels, it also helps overall performance since you are not pushing many pixels

Any feedback on performance? Curious about what we can run on this..

Question: Would a tablet with this resolution be better for an older person (say 65 years of age or older?)

The reason I ask is the resolution makes everything bigger, which would be easier on the eyes, right?

You're watching your TV from a lot farther away than your tablet. Movies and games look a little sharper with more detail. I play one game on my tablet outside of work stuff, and bad scaling and low res has cause me to return tablets because I know how good it looks at 1080 and above. Can't go backwards. I'd rsther spend a little more and find a refurb tab S or even the tab Pro for around the same or maybe less on an a4c deal.

You can always increase the dpi.

Strange comment...do you watch your televisions at 12 inches?

I really love the screen on this tablet! Based on this video review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbO2Sgplocc

I'm getting this for an older relative. The brightness of the screen helps, plus the 10.1" form factor is good. My question: will this low resolution makes things easier to read? Thngs supposedly look bigger with a lower resolution

No but I have used the 22" as a desktop monitor from about 18 inches away. But it could be that my vision is such that I can't tell the difference.

According to online dpi calculators, this tablet has about 150 dpi, roughly equivalent to a 14" screen with 1920x1080 resolution.

It's also roughly equivalent to a 10.1" tablet with a 1366 x 768 resolution (I have one of those).

It's not terrible at all, but most here are used to 200+ tablet dpi. It does look much sharper and crisper at 200+.

But this isn't too bad, especially if your eyes don't mind it.
