I got a Toshiba tablet refurb from Woot and loved it until two iterations of it randomly deciding to encrypt itself, requiring a full wipe to restore it. Googling revealed that some of the units just did that and that Toshiba was not being responsive. It encrypted itself a third time, so back it went, and Woot was great about the return.
I did more research and ended up with a new version of this tablet from a Best Buy, along with the keyboard. I use it at least lightly every day since I got it (about a year ago, I think?) and am using it right now. I thought I would be detaching it more but I LOVE having a hardware keyboard so it usually lives docked, like a mini-laptop. It is a little too big for me to like it undocked as an e-reader as I had originally thought, but the nice screen size makes it great for PDFs.
Case-wise it is quite solid, and holding together well; I clean the dog hair and fingerprints off it periodically and that's all it needs. I didn't bother with a screen protector. The (un)docking clip is VERY well designed though I don't use it much, so it hasn't had a lot of wear in my case.
I got a black "leather" version of the folio case shown in brown above in this thread and find it works very well; the only flaw in the case is that it's hard to take photos from the back camera. It lets you detach the keyboard from the tablet without removing the case; you just unsnap the case and it goes into two pieces. It is not real leather but it is durable. If you aren't taking photos a lot with your tablet, this is what I recommend. Because it is a little thick it makes it thicker to pack and a little hard to swipe from the edge, but I find that a reasonable tradeoff for having a good case. I have dropped the tablet a few times with no damage.
Some of these models have cheaper RAM which means if the tablet is downloading a lot of stuff the responsiveness tanks. I have that issue and I don't know if these will, but it's tolerable if you don't try to multitask much while downloading.
My wifi to my older router running WPA worked flawlessly until I upgraded the tablet to jellybean, and then it stopped working. This is a known bug in Android and is a PITA and some people with older routers may want to be careful. I can still hotspot it in using my desktop running WPA2 at shorter range, and that is okay. I can also use the hotspot from my android phone, so it is not a brick. I am going to upgrade the house router soon and that should resolve it. I have not tried it with WEP but it has connected to hotel WIFI networks well. I wouldn't count on it to do so but if you have a phone that can reliably provide a hotspot for it then that should be fine.
I did a full wipe/restore when trying to resolve the wifi issue and that did perk the behavior of the unit up a bit; it had gotten a bit sluggish because I had overfilled it. I offloaded some things to the extra SD card and it is happier now.
It took a micro-SD card flawlessly so I have tons of space, and I have also shoved a USB flash drive into the slot and it reads that flawlessly as well. I have never tried syncing it to the PC; I'd rather just put stuff onto the flash drive from the PC and copy it onto the tablet.
I use OfficePro rather than the built in office, and Google Drive, and have downloaded Flash from Adobe. (They keep an archive of versions for android, though it's no longer in full support for android.) Flash works with the stock browser and Firefox of the browsers I use, and NOT with Chrome. But Chrome is nice for syncing bookmarks to my Google account. So I just use whatever browser suits whatever I want to do.
The Youtube app was terrible at caching/streaming last I looked (lots of problems with it not buffering sufficiently to assure smooth watching) so I watch youtube straight on the stock browser for better performance. I don't have Netflix streaming but it's fine with Amazon Prime through the browser.
Games have been great on it, and the lavish memory and expansion means it's easy to keep the little piggies handy. (Android games have gotten quite huge in size since tablets came into vogue.)
If my spouse wanted his own tablet (we've been sharing) then I would hop right on this deal. Instead I think I want a smaller one as an ereader and travel tablet and we will share them both between us.
