I could still return my SG2 10.1, and would--if I could be confident Vizio was actually going to build the thing, this time, and it would be in my price range.
I'm kind of burned on Vizio, I bought mine refurbed. And it won't get past the boot screen a few months into my purchase. So even though I see that (once a gain Vizio tablet wins) the stuttering, lagginess of my vtab has turned me off for good.
Have you talked to Vizio customer support? You might be pleasantly surprised. I know I have been.
It has a single-core 1GHz processor. It wasn't even a speed-demon by the standards of the time it was brand new and still in production. It was meant to be a solid economy tablet, and that's what it was.
You want annoyance? Buy a Samsung tablet, have it mess up less than two weeks out of the box, discover it's due to Samsung's customizations to Android and that their developers had been informed of the bug three months past, get zero feedback on a resolution from Samsung, get zero help from Samsung's customer "service," finally see an update and find Samsung shoved it out the door with the bug remaining.
I'm hoping Vizio actually builds this tablet and that Costco carries it. If so, and the price is right: I'll be buying it.
I'll try calling support, thanks for the idea. I'm sure they are more engaging than Samsung. Don;t kn0w what they can really do for a tab that's refurbed and past warranty. Also, not too sure what they can do for the problem...but worth trying, otherwise I will just sell it for parts on ebay or craigslist
just called vizio and had them walk me through a factory reset, which totally fixed the tablet! while it may not be the greatest I am happy to have my kindle app and youtube and remote functions! thanks for the suggestion!!!!
Stay tuned!! Vizio has their Vizio 10 tablet ad up at least (no pricing or date coming out yet)

That's last year's--which they never made. Notice the square corners.
On the Vizio website now, but no date yet..VIZIO CES 2013: All-New Smart TVs, Touch PCs, Tablet PCs, & More | VIZIO
Just purchased a Samsung Tab 2 10.1 for $289...and no problems so far
.Would have purchased the new Vizio if it had been available...oh well. Never had any issues with my Vtab either and wife is using it now. Overall just love the android format and hardly ever use my laptop.
Ah! That is encouraging.
I wonder if what looks like brushed aluminium we're seeing on the edges, there, mean it's going to have an aluminium back? That didn't work out well for Asus, first time they tried it.
