    Known problems?

    Are there any known problems with the 8'' Vizio tablet? Are there any common issues people are having?

    If you haven't already you may want to read trough the threads in this section as the issues are openly talked about and easy to find. The big issues are (1) the SD card in not accessible in the traditional sense for Android devices and (2) adhoc wireless networks are not supported. Both of these can be overcome by rooting the tablet. However, you can only root if you are on software version 1.4. Updating to 1.5 breaks existing root and prevents rooting.

    Yeah I read about the sd card problem.. seems kinda weird. What is an adhoc wireless network? I have bellsouth.net wireless I hope that's okay to use. I have never rooted anything I hear that voids warranty. Thanks.

    ad hoc is normally used to tether a wifi enabled device to your phone so you can access data through your wireless provider. for high speed internet connection through wifi you should not have a problem.

    I have had my refurb unit purchased from woot since Christmas and have had no concerns.

    Several users, such as myself, have had problems with the power port becoming very loose and unuseable. Vizio sent me a replacement. Be gentle when plugging and unplugging.

    The app launcher crashes as regular as clockwork. This is my first ever android device and I have to say that I am not very impressed. Compared to ios this is laggy. I won this vtab in a raffle at work. Free tab too bad but buying it? I hope Vizio updates to android 4.

    I've had mine for over 3 months now and the app launcher has never crashed. Comparing operational speed to a tablet that costs 3 times as much is hardly fair. Still waiting to see what kind of tweaks have been made when Honeycomb update arrives.

    Vizio Vtab1008
    The other day while using my tablet the screen started pixalating (<-- IS that a word?) then the screen turned white. Thank God it fixed itself after I powered it off a couple of times. It's worked fine since. BUT, I did back everything to the sd card using the sandisk app.

    I don't understand this?
    I own one of theses and if you are holding the tablet with the button on top, the SD card access is on the bottom left side under a small plug door not any different than any other tablet or phone, and not as bad as some where you have to take the back off the phone. At least with this you just open the plug door and slide your SD card in or out like any other thing.
    To all members. Remember to thank those who help you with a problem by clicking on the "Thank" icon/link on the right of the screen in the post.
    It helps us (members) to know that we are actually helping you.
