- Where's the updates Review by Army mom
Have had this tablet almost 2 years. Runs great. Use it mainly as an ereader but play games on it and check email.
My only grievance is it has been over 18 mos since last update. Is that the end of the 'support' from Vizio?

- Great Tablet! Review by drojo20102010
I love my Vizio tablet! At first i thought i would be disappointed at it at first but i had mine since last year and it's still working perfectly! I'd say it's way better than the iPad where alot of the apps cost money wereas the Vizio is android powered and can get lots of apps for free!
Waiting on Vizio's new and 'improved' tablet. :D I can't wait!

- Perfecto! Review by Earthspirit
OMG this tablet rocks! Got it last spring and my husband got an Ipod touch. I haven't had to fix mine once while he's sent his in three times! Great apps and prices, easy to use, and durable. I dropped it yesterday and it came up with only a little beat-up corner. I would like to suggest that you sell cases for them. I got mine at CostCo for 200$ came with charger too.
Most amazing thing I've had. close to the iPad but different, and cheaper for sure!
Thank you Vizio for making such a wonderful device!

- Can't really complain! Review by bahndasmom
The price alone is what made me buy the tablet. However, the charger port stopped working. I do not exactly why, but it just stopped making a connection completely. So I called Vizio and they had no problem with replacing it. They did not have the same model in stock, so sent a different model ( and gave me a credit for the difference of the purchase price, which was a nice surprise!) But now 6 moths later, the replacement has the same issue, the charger port is not making a connection. Customer service is fabulous and they are sending another new one. I really hope they can fix the port issue. Maybe change the port to something more durable. It works fabulous, never have any complaints about that! It it so very worth it!

- Just what I looking for! Review by Cooker
I started out wanting an ereader. Discovered e-ink readers don't handle pdf's docs that well. Thus the search began for a tablet. I checked out everything. It's either 7" or 10". Saw a YouTube review in a sidebar. There was Vizio. The 8" is a good middle ground for my needs which are basically reading, email, etc. I'm not an entertainment junkie. No time for that. Anything can change, right? lol! It's a little heavier with the case than current products. I like the hefty feel of it though, but long periods of use can be an issue. Bought it used for $125 (Oct 2012). The guy took care care of it. Looks new. Got the Honeycomb upgrade upon setting it up. The guy I bought it from had two (one for his wife). He had issues with the charger as well. In reading the posted reviews, I want to say 'thanks' - I'll be careful to leave it alone when charging. Only had the device a few days. Will update later after using it a while. Thanks Vizio! Stay in the game. You've a good thing here. It can only get better.

- GREAT TABLET! Only issue is charging port... Review by klingercrazy
THANK YOU VIZIO!!! I had to contact Vizio support warrantee service for my VTAB Tablet. Throughout the process so far (just mailed tablet in for repair/replacement) has been 5 STAR in every way. Knowing that VIZIO stands behind its products and serves its customers after the purchase makes consumers able to choose Vizio with full confidence! Also knowing that if anything does go wrong, support centers in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA staffed by fully compitent and sincere personel are available to assist you. THANK YOU AGAIN VIZIO first for a superior product AND superior service! I will never hesitate buying any Vizio product and will actively tell others about VIZIO! Keep up the GREAT WORK!

- I hope the warranty is as good as the tablet Review by ashfogal
We have three of these tablets for our daughters and would have more if they hadn't sold out at CHristmas. GREAT tabet for the money. 2 of our 3 tablets did start having issues with charging, there was something wrong in the charger usb so we have now sent the to VIZIO. Their customer service agents were AWESOME!!! All could speak English and were in the USA! So now I am hoping the part is covered since they are only 6 months old but up to this point we have been PLEASED! We will by Vizio again.

VIZIO Tablet gets detailed, we go hands-on
June 21, 2011
Way back in January at CES, we managed to sneak in a little bit of hands-on time with the Vizio tablet, the TV manufacturer's straightforwardly-named foray into the ever-popular space. The tablet runs Gingerbread at present, though Vizio has said that it's willing to make the leap over to the tablet-optimized Honeycomb, as soon as that operating system is deemed sufficiently stable by the company...Read More
Walmart leak pegs VIZIO 8-inch tablet launch 6-weeks out
June 20, 2011
Earlier this week, we saw the Vizio tablet in video when NBA star Blake Griffin was hooked up by the Vizio man with a new home theater and a tablet to control the system. I like how the tablet can integrate with the Vizio home theater and work like a universal remote control. I also really liked the cool stereo speaker setup that Vizio used so you get stereo sound in portrait and landscape modes...Read More
