    Would only recommend this for very small children or someone who just wants to use it for reading. No Google Apps like YouTube, and the screen is dark and the colors are poor.

    My grandson likes the tab. The only problem I have with it is that everything you download, apps especially, has to go through Amazon and some apps don't perform well or none at all.

    Excellent tablet! Santa gave my kids the 7 last year and the HD 8 this year. The 7's were just fine, but my Santa insisted on the larger screen. I like the expandable storage, however this isn't very useful for apps since most games cannot be stored on the micro SD. The micro SD is excellent for photos and videos though.

    I start with five points for the low cost of this tablet. I deduct one star because the Fire OS sucks like a vacuum cleaner. The interface is unattractive and not easily customizable, unlike Windows, Android, or Apple OS. Another star was deducted because the number of compatible software apps is poor compared to Android, and abysmal compared to iPad and Surface [Windows OS] tablets. I deduct another star because the Tablet is slow when booting up and its performance is sluggish when trying to use a keyboard. If I had it to do over again, I'd have purchased afor n HP Stream laptop since it is small like a netbook and uses a Windows OS. About the only useful purpose this has is as an mp3 player or for playing cheesy, low-def video gaming.
