E255676 - Dell 7" Android 3.0 Honeycomb Tablet with Bluetooth & WiFi
I got this as a gift for my daughter
she only had it for a few weeks
and it froze up till the battery went
dead and wouldnt turn back on
thankfully we got our money
back but i would not recommend this
to anyone listen to the reviews its junk!!
I have never written a review and have purchased many, many products from QVC. I purchased 6 of these for students going to college and in high school last December as gifts. Every single one of them have had nothing but problems with this tablet. Of course, the 30 day return policy had expired and trying to get help from Dell without them charging an arm and leg has been a joke. Please don't waste your money. I cannot tell you how embarassesd I am to have given such a worthless gift to some very excited children only to leave them disappointed in the end. I wish I could have rated this a "0" because that's all the Dell Streak 7 deserves.
SAVE YOUR MONEY
I purchased the Dell Streak 7 the end of October 2011. It took almost 30 days for it to arrive. Not a problem, IF it had been worth the wait. Sadly, it was not. The Streak is a perfect size (unlike it's bulky 10 inch competitors), but that's where the positives ended for me. It was impossible to use with my desktop computer to download photos, .pdf files, etc. A friend finally installed SyncUp on my desktop computer and that improved things slightly. Now a mere 9 months after receiving it, it has experienced the (apparently COMMON) problem of the battery being unable to charge. I've gone on-line and from what I've read, I wasted a significant amount of money. Please, keep looking and SAVE YOUR MONEY.
DON'T BUY DELL
I FELT THAT THE BOOKLET THAT CAME WITH IT LEFT A LOT TO BE DESIRED AND CUSTOMER SUPPORT FROM DELL WAS A JOKE. THE BATTERY LIFE ON MINE DOESN'T LAST LONG AND WHEN I CONTACTED DELL, I WAS TOLD THEY DIDN'T CARRY THEM ANYMORE I WOULD HAVE TO TRY AN AFTER MARKET SOURCE. MY USE OF IT ON A DAILY BASIS WORKS FOR ME AFTER I HAD SOMEONE WITH COMPUTER AND TABLET EXPERIENCE SHOW ME HOW TO DO THINGS. I'M DISAPPOINTED THAT DELL IS NOT SUPPORTING A PRODUST THAT HASN'T EVEN BEEN OFF THE SHELVES 1 YEAR.
Could be better
I bought this tablet (actually I have the 3g one) because I have always liked Dell. I figured if Dell put their name on it then it must be good. Well it is, but as a tech geek, forward compatibility and support are what I look for. Well sadly after I got this I found out that Dell was dropping production, not just of the Streak, but tablets in general. I bought a tablet because I travel alot for work, so I wanted it to do all the normal stuff and also to use it to watch netflix on my tv that I bring with me. Well It didn't come with media cables and come to find out you need to get a dock for it. No big deal, I'll just go to Dell and buy one. Well the only dock they made was for the 5" streak. There was never one made for the 7". Also, the aftermarket support for the streak 7 in almost non-existent and software updates will never come. I have never had problems with charging with mine also. So if you are looking for a tablet, I would drift towards, something like Samsung or Asus.
has been sent back all the of them, most will not charge, If and big if you send them back, there is nothing wrong....we try and after one day back again can not charge..this is going to take take a lone time putting by in boxes...and waiting know this computer Is just not working, and I WILL GET THESE TWO BACK JUST THE WAY THEY WERE SENT TO THEN my grandkids. would love to be up to date i don,t think will ever outit just a push. I wasted alot of money for three hat will never be use....I know just keep sendig them until they fix them....well it has been going on nov, of 1211 don,t think anyone really care......
I had a Pandigital and this one is so much better quicker and offer so much more. Paid more but is so worth it would highly recommend this to everyone my 5 year old grandaughter oves it as well.
Stopped working in less than 4 weeks.
I enjoyed this tablet, easy to use, but just stopped working after 28 days. Very thankful for QVC customer support and ease of returns however, very disappointed that all of my info is in this table and I can't even turn it on to reset it to factory default to remove my personal information.
Good unit for the money, works good and is very user friendly.All in all a good product.
Great For The Money
I had been looking at tablets for months before I settled on this one. I had read reviews here and on other sites. When I got it home I was thrilled. I had been using and android cell phone to play games and surf the web. Now I have this device and couldn't be happier. The screen size is great for reading and playing games. The tablet size is great to hold in your hand. I have small hands and felt the larger sizes would be cumbersome. I have not had any problems with it. I will say that constant play does drain the battery quickly. Also the power cord is rather short. All in all great for the family at a great price.
I bought this for myself, because I like to do different things while I am waiting. I can read my books, magazines, surf the net or play games as long as a I have a WiFi connection. It is the perfect size. You can also sign into your nook or kindle accounts on it.
