Six months later it was toast
9 March, 2013
I convinced my daughter that this would be a better way to spend her $160 than a refurbished iPod, which was what she really wanted. She worked so hard for her money, that I wanted her to get the most for it.
Right away, this tablet was not as responsive as she expected. It needed to be turned off then back on fairly often due to apps that would freeze. Then the power switch stopped working about four months after purchase.
It didn;t help, of course that she lost the power cord at that same time. Please realize that a new power cord from the company at that time would have cost us $40. This device can be charged through the mini USB.
Speaking of the mini USB, my daughter bought a keyboard to plug in when she bought this device, but plug in keyboards do not work with this device. A nice afterthought.
The clock kept resetting,causing trouble with all the apps.
And now it charges and turns on, but will not go off the home screen. I have searched the ziio site, but have not gleaned any helpful information.
As far as I'm concerned, this item was a waste of money when it was $120, and it is twice that waste now.
