You can buy these tablets for peanuts. Many have issues with the USB port, so be careful when buying because no USB means no file transfer and no charging.

Speaking of charging, when plugged in it will pop up a message saying it can't charge. In fact it does charge, either turned on or turned off. It charges very slowly (usually it takes a night). Careful not to fully discharge the tablet, because many were not able to charge it back again afterwards.

It is heavy but I use it on a stand so it doesn't matter.

Great tablet for kids to watch a film or internet, because it has an amazing screen - better than many tablets as of today - amazing front facing speakers and a micro HDMI port, so you can connect it directly to the TV to watch a movie or internet/Youtube or games.

The rear camera is amazing for taking pictures or movies. The front camera doesn't matter because there is no way to connect to Skype with this tablet.

It's a rubbish device which use is too much tough. Playbook neither runs viber,what's app nor skype and all these apps are very common and famous in use. I suggest every body that please don't waste your money because you have to feel repentance after buying it. Sohail.anjum86@yahoo.com

Great tablet! HDMI output is a great feature. No issues with downloading pdf files, word documents, or excel files. Camera is excellent considering that my playbook is over two years old. Battery life is excellent. I have used this daily for over two years and I refer to battery life in days not hours. I strongly recommend.

As a PB user.... I'll tell you that's weirdest tablet I've ever seen. BBworld doesn't support you with proper software Its heavy and there is nothing cool you can do with it. I mean once you will start it for the first time and set it up and start to install apps you'll be quite disappointed. No skype, no proper map (come on... Bing sux) and nothing for free. Well I cant wait once somebody will finally crack it and make us able to install a custom ROM. Otherwise I'll give it away.

The Playbook has it's advantages, but there is a LONG list of disadvantages... I bought my 32gb this summer for $65 and thought I was getting a great deal, however once trying to use it with programs other tablets can run I was VERY disapointed. I even PAID for the blackberry version of each program I was trying to use and even after paying there were still bugs. The playbook is great if you just want a on the go TV for the kids or for long car rides. I just use my playbook for storage, it's great for all my tv shows and movies, and few select games; but thats pretty much it.

This is still a good tablet although it's 2 years old. I have the 64GB model, it shoots excellent photo's and videos. It's also got great speakers.
