I tried the stock ROM for a few hours, it actually seemed ok.
Since this is my first Android device, most all of the functionallity of the device was new to me. Out of the box, it seemd pretty good, but I figured with everyone upgrading, there must be a good reason.
So I ventured on. I had been reading the posts about rooting the device ever since I bought it, so I was pretty familar with the process. My first few steps didn't go very well, and I thought I close to softbricking my device.
I finaly got everything installed, and it is better than stock. Plus I think the in the process, you can get access to more apps. I'm still not familar with "markets" but as the name implys, that is where you get your apps. The better the market place, the more apps you have. I think stock, there wasnt much available.
Also, the ROM I installed, Vegan-tab, to me, seems much nicer. Just be sure to follow ALL instructions. Including getting a updated launcher. Launch Pro, from the market place, is a much nicer experience that from the Vegan-tab default in my opinion.
I think the benefit of rooting, really opens up a lot more options, and power of the device.
