The Asus Transformer or the Samsung Tabs [edit: Nexus this time] come out on top (I love my transformer). The Polaroids are consistently rated as garbage. The Vizio tablet has a design flaw in the charging port where it has a nasty habit of coming apart from the main board and killing your tablet. The connector is of course not available to fix yourself (I had to find a close fit aftermarket off e-bay and it sort of kinda works). Viewsonic abandoned the G-Tablet after they released it so their track record for support is not the greatest (great tablet though).
And thanks again Woot for not shipping tablets to APO addresses like every other company in the world seems to be able to do. In the last 2 years ago you shipped me an entire bike, a TV, and the very Vizio tablet on the page today, but somehow can no longer do that for any sales recently.
Man, I need to stop reading comments negatively pointed at Woot! For years I came to watch the videos (favs - ben the over literal dermestid bettle, & real actual field tests) and the discussion (it helped me keep up on world and tech events). But, now with the new in your face product design, I don't think of the videos anymore. Lots of comments are lacking the experts I relied on for my tech education (where did they go?).
Guess I just miss the old times. I'm still happy for you Woot!, you work hard, you deserve stability. And, I've been finding greater deals in other places. Sorry Woot
