Here's my take on this tablet, I bought it and it was the worst investment and here's why.
The Build Quality is good, the screen resolution is great but what makes me not recommend it is that it is just an entertainment device and it is very limited to what it can do due to the fact that most of the android apps are NOT available unless they are Amazon approved so when I moved from a Samsung tablet that was very productive and you can pretty much download ANY app and/or widget to customize your tablet or run productivity apps for work. I was NOT impressed and on top of it you don't have a rear camera or can't expand the memory with an sd card. This thing has potential but it has been locked only to use Amazon services and apps so you WON'T be able to get the most of this tablet.

Amazing Tablet For Price
Haven't had any issues thus far and I've had it for about a month. It works as advertised. Battery life is long. Performance is quick! Much faster than the 7" versions, which is a plus. The screen is bright and full HD (1920x1200). Sound is probably the best feature. Loud. Dolby Stereo. Wireless is also the fastest of any other tablet I've seen yet.
I would definitely recommend this to others!
Best tablet I have ever owned.

Outstanding value and performance! I researched many different tablets before making the plunge and I am very happy with my choice. If there is any negative it would be the lack of the rear facing camera.

Starting locking up on day 1, had to reboot several times. Taking back to store.
