    Very nice well rounded budget 8 inch tablet Just to clear the air on some of the note’s another reviewer felt the need to leave on this tablet. first! far as reviews go, this tablet just released as of April of this year in the US and as for the number of reviews, a very small percentage of people that purchase a item, ever even leave a review. and second, the youtube audio and video synce problem’s are nothing new, and youtube continue’s to have such issue’s with there software, but can be effected this way by many other factor’s, like the browser used, video format ,internet bandwidth and some time’s hardware and OS conflict’s, but very unlikely, now with that said, let’s move on. I’m not a new comer to the PC, notebook or tablet world, have been using such device’s for over twenty years. As far as the Lenovo ideatab go’s I have had some time now to put it through some test, like HD 1080p video playback, this included Youtube and Netflix, which viewed very well with no such issue’s stated above and considering it only has a…

    I FINALLY FOUND A RELIABLE ANDROID TABLET. THANKS LENOVO. I’ve tried many 8″ Android tablets including Dell, Samsung and Asus. They were all returned to Amazon due to stability or incompatibility issues that I just can’t / won’t tolerate. My job requires some sort of tablet that is flexible, stable and dependable. I have an iPad Air that works great but is a bit too big. I’m very satisfied with everything about this tablet. I use it daily and have never had any issues whatsoever, neither before the Kit Kat update nor after. If your looking for a stable, dependable and affordable Android tablet, this is it. I was about to give up on Android OS because of past experience with other devices but FINALLY I found one that actually works. Way to go Lenovo, you guys rock. The screen looks awesome, all the apps I use work perfectly and I don’t even need to take the charger to work because the battery saving features Lenovo incorporated in this device are flawless. All day battery life with moderate to heavy usage and plenty left when I get home…

    OK, Couldn’t resist… (Updated) I’d been looking at the Asus Memo Pad 8, planning to buy, then saw this one. Asus and Lenovo are both are solid names with good reputations, I’ve owned and loved laptops made by both. The price is practically the same. I’m not normally an “early adopter,” but the dual front speakers and a color other than white are what sold me on this one. I ordered it today, should be here Tuesday, so more to follow.Update:The build feels solid, and finish feels good and “grippy.”Display is bright, and looks good from the side. I’m generally using it at 60% brightness in normal room light. I like the 8” form factor, my eyes aren’t young any more. :)The sound is OK, the SINGLE speaker faces front and is about what you’d expect.Battery life: It drops about 2% per hour when in “standby.” Watching videos will use about 14% per hour with the display at 60% brightness.There’s not a lot of bloatware. Of the 16GB of storage,…
