I'm fairly happy with my ePad/Flytouch. I got it for a decent price so thought it would be worth trying an android tablet. Since it had the 256MB RAM I thought it might be closer to the performance of the aPad. But sadly its still quite slow. I was hoping to use it for some old school gaming. NES games run but too slow to be playable, and SNES roms don't even play. Other than that its been great. Mine does have access to the Android Market. I don't see much use other than web browsing or using as an eReader.

I am happy with the price/performance of my Flytouch. I have 2 (one's for a friend), and both came with 1.7.2 and I have upgraded 1 of them to 1.7.4. I think I'll give the 1.7.2 to my friend who is less technically literate and just wants to do email, browse, and read ebooks. The 1.7.4 looks like it has a few things that do not work properly yet but it seems to do most of what I want and is allowing me to learn the Android environment ready for something better when it all settles down with the 2.2 release.The 1.7.4 I got from the download pages on this site.

Very happy. Did careful research before I bought it.Worked better than expected especially with 1.74 upgrade.7" form factor is really good for single-handed operation.Cheap as chips - $99 bucks.At that price I have a mini-Laptop/e-reader.

i bought it for 130 dollars shippinh included and everything, and i believe it is really good. It has 256 mb ram, it?s speed is ok and you can connect ethernet and 3g modules to it (3g if you have android version 1.7.4).The thing that bugs me is the android market that doesn?t load, but i use my computer and/or the ePad itself to download third party apps from other sources. so i find it a pretty good deal

I guess i bougth it also by a impulsive feeling. In anyway i've never expected this device to b cutting edge speed, is quite amuzing though. I really enjoy how it keeps connectivity and alerts me when i receive email, got something going on on facebook, youtube video playback and web browsing.Also if you don't have a computer nearby this pad can be a lifesaver if you need information over the inet. I'am also using it for college, i'm a graphic design student and sometimes i use it to display and discuss some jobs with my professors.Is lightweight, it has a good screensize, decent video playback (for the price) and is really entertaining if you like to tweak stuff like messing with the firmware, try to speed it up, test new os's and so.If you want a gaming device, you should buy a psp, mine is somewhere in my room i really don't pay to much attention to it anymore.In general lines i'll write a quick review:Design: 8/10Speed: 4/10Connectivity: 10/10Support: 0/10 (if you count slatedroid as support 10/10)Transportability: 9/10Battery life: 5/10Easy of use: 9/10Book reading: 9/10Picture display: 9/10Fun factor: 100/10Average score: 8/10 <------ for what it cost is a lot.

The youtube reviews seem fairly decent for the price. I guess I'll see when mine arrives, but in the videos I found, the OS seemed quite responsive. Boot time was slow, but ebooks and Page loads in the browser weren't too bad. (YouTube - ePad Flytouch (Generic Android Tablet) Mini-Review (ebook reader and browser)). From what I've read, the newer ROMs improve performance as well.I just won't set my expectations too high and hope for the best.

It's okay not the fastest tablet around but it does work after you root it and add rooted apps. Camera/Camcorder I won't be using though. I did notice that it had some dead pixel but that turn out to be dirt on the inner cover. I just pull that off and use anti-static spray to wipe clean. There are 4 tiny screws to remove the panel.

Loving my new flytouch after about a week of having it. Battery life is pretty shocking but otherwise fantastic fun for the money (?60 ebay). Had been sold it as an apad which it clearly isnt but with Sir HidePerso's wonderful 1.9.88 ROM, she is stable and behaving! Gotta love them Chinese :)

Prop up against a netbook. Try to find a good desktop stand for it though. I might make one out of wood?
I use standard book holder - steal one from my kinds
