E166470 - PanDigital 7"TouchScreen Color Multimedia WiFi eReader & More
Not a Quality Product
Response time was really slow and trying to move from one page in a book to another was almost painful. You have to keep pushing on the screen and swiping your finger over the screen and even then the page wouldn't move forward. I read one book on this and my fingers were sore from trying to get from one page to another. Email functionality was sporadic and very slow. This just isn't up to QVC standards! Very disappointed.
PanDigital Customer Support Not Good
Purchased the unit Oct 2010 and the ac adapter stop working. Have been calling customer service for 2 month just to get a replacement ac adapter since the unit is still under warranty.
Cheap Product, No customer support!!!
We bought this for our teenage daughter for Christmas. 1 month later, the power button broke. I have tried contacting PanDigital about the warranty to have the device repaired. I have gotten no response or even an acknowledgement. So I have a $190 paperweight. When it worked, my daughter loved it. But if the company will not support their customers, it is worthless. I will not buy another PanDigital product again.
Internet Access is Limited
The reader portion worked o.k. I thought some tasks were not very user friendly and I had to open up the manual! If you are buying it for internet access, look elsewhere. Many pictures on QVC (and other sites) did not show up. If you search for items, none of the pictures come up. Email was easy to access. For the price, I expected better internet access.
Love, love mine!!!
I have had my Pandigital since October. I love it!!! I have had no problems downloading anything, getting Wifi anywhere and just plain love mine. Turning pages I found if you go from top to bottom opposite corners with your sytlist or fingernail the pages turn great. At first it was a little challenging to turn them, but I have it down to a science now. I have gotten alot of free books and love how I can read anytime. Just be sure you charge it every night and keep the wifi off when you are just reading. I read my Facebook pages with it and receive my email on it too. It was worth the price I paid. I love mine!!
I really wished that I had sent this back before the 30 days expiration period. I was stuck making payments and not using this, it is not worth the money...runs really slow!!
Read the reviews
My Husband bought me this product for Christmas. We should have read the reviews. He got the product just in time for Christmas as promised. He did not open the package and just wrapped it as it came. When I opened it, I was excited to start to show off my gift. To my surprise the item came damaged. The screen was cracked straight acrossed the screen. The package was not damaged, and the crack was on the inside of the glass, which means it must have been package damaged before packaging. Now we have to return the item and wait and see if there is another item available What kind of gift was this!!! You get it time for Christmas, just not promised mentioned how.
Sad excuse for an e-reader...
Bought this e-reader on October 25, 2010 when it was a Today's Special Value (total cost $193.90). Sounded wonderful on-air. It was to be a Christmas gift to a family member. I recently opened it and checked it out before wrapping it to make sure it worked as advertised. Thank goodness I did because it was awful! I immediately sent it back for a refund (but was told by QVC customer rep that since it had been more than 30 days since purchase- even though it was a Christmas gift - that I would have to pay for the shipping). I purchased a B&N Nook instead (which worked wonderfully by the way) and wrapped it for gifting at Christmas. What infuriated me more was that not 7 weeks after selling this unit, Pan Digital was back on December 19 with a "newer version" of the same product as a TSV! I suppose Pan Digital saw the terrible online reviews and heard from QVC that so many units were being returned that they scrambled to rectify the situation by creating a newer unit to address the complaints. What about those unfortunate QVC customers who bought the original and are now stuck with the first defective version? That's an expensive mistake. As a long-term customer of QVC I found this vendor charade very troubling. I was surprised that QVC didn't honestly address this issue on-air on December 19. This has given me second thoughts about continuing to purchase from QVC in the future...
Love it! Love it! Love it!
I LOVE this eReader ! Did I say that? LOL! The complaints I have read from reviewers just boggle my mind....most complaints stem from people who are not using the device properly......I love it so much that I bought the one that was just the TSV the other day and I am going to give my "old" one to my hubby! This device is so versatile and user friendly! Granted.....the stylus was meant to be used over fingers....although a nice fingernail works beautifully. The battery lasts an acceptable amount of time...if you are reading a book, just make sure your Wifi button is tirned off to prolong battery life. I love this......my only complaint, if I had to give one, is that it doesn't come with a car charger....still looking to find one. Maybe someone out there has purchased one and can give me a clue as to where to find one that is compatible!
Not What I Expected
I ordered this tablet hoping that I could use it as an e-reader and on vacation for my emails but found that I had a very difficult time finding an e-reader app and I kept getting a message about not being connected to the internet. I have sent this tablet back along with the accessories that I got to go with it. I just ordered the TSV this weekend. Hope that I am more satisfied with this one!
I would love to love this product...
I was so excited when I ordered this product. I already have the Sony e reader, which I love, but I really wanted to upgrade to WiFi w/ reader. I have had this reader for over two months now, but am just now getting a chance to read because I'm on break from school. I'm so disappointed. I can't even change pages to read the books. WiFi works great; but that's about it. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone. I'm sending it back ASAP !!!
Download the Update
I have to admit I wasn't too sure I liked this product all that much. Once I downloaded the firmware update it's performance improved exponentially and now I love it! The update made it faster and much it easier to use.
