    Proscan Tablets?

    In today's Sunday newspaper ad for Big Lots is a 8" Proscan for $120:

    View Proscan Android™ 4.0<br>8" Tablet Deals at Big Lots

    Looks like the same specs as the Vizio except running 4.0 but doesn't list processor speed. A visit to the Proscan site shows the company once had 12 different tablets for sale but all seem to have been pulled and no replacements. Google search finds next to nothing on this company's adventure into tablets. Has anyone ever seen one or even seen an online review of one?

    I just purchased one. Had 3 left at my Big Lots. For $120 I 'd give it a try. Seems to be built sturdy enough.
    3 core 1.2ghz +super 3D gpu+1080p media processor. 512 mb ddr, 4gb nand flash to 32GB opt. 3g usb
    3D gravity sensor. It has a large music format, large video format, & JPEG,BMP,GIF,PNG pict. format
    My wife has a 10" Acer A500, I'm a novice to tablets, but this seems to be easy to navigate so far. I have
    a long learning process to go thru. This one is good enough for me. Hope this helps.

    I just bought one. I own four tablets, and this is worthless. The GetJar market does not work and crashes, and google play will not install 3.15 or any other version I found. So since you can't install software it makes it worthless. I am going to shoot it.

    If you bought it at Big Lots and saved your receipt you can return it--but you only have 30 days...

    I haven't been impressed w. Big Lot's electronics except for LG prepaid phones

    (which it no longer sells) I bought a netbook. It wasn't even worth it at a low price. It took three hours to charge and then discharged even when turned off. The manufacturer said it was designed that way. And then it froze up. Luckily this was within the return period. But I wouldn't have kept it anyway. Some netbooks use full-featured software. This was like a bad smart phone as it used mobile apps (except it lacked the ability to make calls, take pictures.)

    The tablet looks alright. IMO it is better to shell out a little more and get a Kindle as it is much more powerful. It is for a kid or someone not demanding it would be alright.
    It is distributed by Curtis International (a Canadian Company).

    Here are the specs:
    http://www.curtisint.com/products/Im...ts/PLT8031.pdf

    8" TFT LCD 5 POINTS CAPACITIVE SCREEN 4:3
     O.S: ANDROID 4.0
     CPU: BOXCHIP A10 1.2 GHZ, GPU: 400 MHZ
     RAM: 512MB DDR3 (this is the minimal require for ICS)
     RESOLUTION:800*600
     VIDEO FORMAT (1080P): WMV, MKV, MOV, AVI, RM/RMVB, MPEG-2/4.
     AUDIO FORMAT:MP3,WMA,3GP,AACFLAC,WAV.OGG
     SOFTWARE: SUPPORT WORD, EXCEL, PPT, PDF, MSN, SKYPE.
     GAME: 3D GAME, G-SENSOR GAME, CLASSIC GAME, TOUCH GAME.
     AUTOMATIC SCREEN ROTATION: FOUR-DIRECTION ROTATE SCREEN.
     HARD DISK: 4GB NAND FLASH
     SUPPORT EXTERNAL 3G MODULE (NOT INCLUDED)
     SUPPORT WIFI:802.11B/G/N
     SUPPORT 1.3 MP CAMERA,
     SUPPORT 1080P/ 3D VIDEO OUTPUT
     TF X 1(MAXIMUM: 32GB)
     MINI USB X 1
     HDMI X1 (no cables included for this)
     STEREO AUDIO OUT X 1
     MICROPHONE IN X 1
     RECHARGEABLE LI-POLYMER BATTERY:4400MAH/5V 2AH

    Around here Big Lots has a 20% off today on everything. It is not a bad tablet at sub-100 but I still think spending a little more is a better use of the money. Again as a disposable tablet it is a great buy, some of my relatives decided to get one.

    I also bought one for my mother yesterday. Resolution is good, but not great with an 8" large screen. Quadrant Standard rating around 1400. ARM 7 single core. Market installed and ALMOST works, but I am going to pull it out. I use CNET Mobile 1. ICS Gmail and Youtube work fine. WIFI WON'T BOOT WITH SDCARD IN ! Wifi works fine without it though. May be a DRM issue. Overall, if she doesn't want it, I'll be happy to buy it ! It took me a while to figure out which program was the file manager. I also put KOBO on it and IMPORTED some free books onto it from Gutenberg.

    Looks and feels solid.

    A friend just purchased the tablet at Big Lots, struggling to use it. The manual offers little information....where the heck is the "enter" for entering comments, such as when on Facebook.

    ProScan 7 Inch Internet Tablet
    I just bought a ProScan 7 Inch Internet Tablet at BigLots for $69.99 and even at that price it is worthless.
    The box says that it is running Android 4.0, with a 1 GHz CPU, Super 3D GPU, and 4 GByte memory.
    This thing is NOT user friendly. And the instruction(???) manual is about as much help as trying to decipher Tolstoy's "War and Peace" from a Greek translation.
    The instruction manual(???) doesn't really say anything, isn't written like English, and has numerous typo's and gaps. It doesn't even tell you how to set the Time or Date. Plus, the Help number is always busy, even at 2 in the morning.

    I'm computer savy, (30+ years working on PC's and Unix systems), just not tablet nor Android savy So I figured this would be an inexpensive way to start. WRONG!!! This thing is going back and I'm going to spend the extra money and get a Kindle Fire. At least Google can provide Help.
