LINSAY F-7HD4Core 7 Tablet
I have had the tablet for about a week and so far it has done everything I needed it to do. Plays recorded videos from my Media center. The tablet is quick and versatile. I would recommend it. The only thing I don't like is that some of the outside edges are a little sharp which is annoying when holding in one hand, it would have been better if they were rounded, but I think adding a case would fix this.

Spectacular linsay 4Core
I had this delivered 2 weeks ago.
First impressions....fast, lightweight, thin, and super sharp picture. How the heck are there so many enhancements stuffed in the LINSAY 7" 4core without weighing it down or slowing the processor speed?
Navigating through the apps is quick and smooth, very responsive to touch. I had multiple apps #10-20# running at once and it didn't affect performance at all.
The picture is amazing, the colors are vivid and the contrast and sharpness makes some content almost look 3D. It also handles glare pretty good. Best screen I've seen to date and I have an iPhone w/ retina.
The speaker sound is really good, they actually put out some bass.
The app selection in the Google Play store is plentiful...once you have your top 50 apps you should be set and play store has all of the must-have apps, every app I looked for/needed was found and downloaded quickly and painlessly #love the Yahoo fantasy football, Facebook, Pandora, TuneIn PRO, and Netflix apps#.
The video camera is crystal clear and the rear camera is a much welcomed addition. Great pics and video! The built in Skype app works very well for free video calls with friends and family. The good thing is, anyone with the Skype app can receive your video call on their device #unlike Facetime where both users must have an Apple device#. This allows you to have free video calls with more of your contacts as long as they download Skype from their respective app store.
The camera app is surprisingly useful considering it comes built in. It has a ton of photo editing capabilities including filters #way more than instagram#, panorama shots, cropping, text, and funny stickers you can paste to pics. You would think this was a paid-for camera app.
The email client was very easy to set up, I had my Gmail loaded in less than a minute.
The overall build feels sturdy and just pure quality. Again, it is very thin and lightweight but feels like it was put together very well.
The battery lasted for 6+ hours while I was hopping around fantasy football, Facebook, and email on Sunday during the games. This is very good for an HD tablet. People must remember a tablet is more like a smartphone and needs to be charged when not using since apps and wifi are constantly running in the background. For being so thin and lightweight the battery is very impressive.
The Silk browser is nice, although it defaults with Bing, so I changed it to Google #personal choice#.
I really like the icon with reading glasses that appears in the top right of the browser that let's you change to reading mode. It converts the web page text into a book-like page, similar to the Kindle e-reader. It really makes reading articles on various websites easy on the eyes.
LINSAY screen resolution: Watching TV shows and movies is enhanced by x-ray. Just tap on the screen and factoids about the actors in the scene #at that moment# pop up on the side of the screen without interrupting the play. Just tap the screen again and the info disappears. This also works when listening to music from the music tab; the lyrics of the song appear while the song is playing. I've always had to interrupt myself and check my phone for movie info or song lyrics when I watched or listened on other devices, now it's all in one place and available with a tap of the finger. No more asking "what's that actor's name", "what other movie was she in", or "how does that song go"!
The keyboard is really accurate, no typos yet. I noticed there is an external keyboard #standard ones work Ok on it# , but I'm okay with the on-screen keyboard for now.
The price was Spectacular! for what I got. It's good to know they're not making a profit on me before I even opened the box! PS: Office Depot has the Best deal on this LINSAY Tab.
Overall, I am very pleased with the appearance and performance after using it for 14 days. I was really looking forward to this purchase and I must admit that I am more than satisfied. Office Depot over-delivered on this. Well done Office Depot!
If you don't care about "labels", then this is the best tablet you can buy right now. And if you ask me, do not pay more by the same quality or brand names!. You won't be sorry. Enjoy!

Broke the first day!
Bumped the glass on the front screen and it shattered.
I really liked the tablet, it was easy to use and had all the features that I wanted. Really great for the price, wish it was a little more durable!

Exceptionally Good Tablet at Low Price
I was very impressed with this Android tablet, first and foremost because I was able to watch streaming video using Firefox on a site that required a Flash Player and this Lindsay tablet has that. This means that I can use this thin, lightweight tablet instead of my computer for most things that I do. I downloaded the Firefox app, as well as banking apps like Chase, from the Google Play store and everything so far is compatible with this tablet.The hardware specs were exceptional--more or less equal to the 2012 Kindle Fire HD (which seems to permit no other browser than Silk and allows neither Flash Player nor access to the Google Play Store).
