Worst tablet ever

Pros: light
Cons: no battery life, no play store, very few pre-installed apps
Model Number: MID9742-8
"At first, I liked that it was light. But that meant that there was NO battery life at all. The apps that normally come pre-installed on an Android tablet were not there. Worst of all, there was no Play Store (formerly called Google Marketplace).
I have already returned it."

Awful product

Model Number: COBY MID9742-8
"I would recommend the buyer NOT get this but invest in a better quality like a SAMSUNG - I took this back and got that one instead and I love it - worth paying extra for less aggravation"

Works but disappointing

Pros: decent screen and display
Cons: can not download from google play
Model Number: MID9742-8
"The tablet works ok. The battery life is not too bad if you remember to turn off the wireless when not in use. Even if the tablet is "off", the wireless seems to discharge the battery. Very disappointing that it can not download apps from Google Play (aka Android Market). There are other download sites but they don't have the same selection of apps."

Horrible Touch Screen

Cons: no google play to download apps., horrible touch screen
"If I could give this unit zero stars I would. It is not supported by Google Android as an "approved device" so the apps are from some third party site, not Google Play. So gmail, and other Google made apps do not function as an app but through a browser page. On top of that, the touch screen was very messed up and basically thought there were 20 different touches going on in a split second."
