7" Android 4.0 from ebay

There is a seller on ebay - $65 +$20 shipping for 7" Android, Capacitive touch screen, 512 mb, 1 ghz, 4 GB built in, low end camera (0.3 M pixel), wifi,etc.

Any opinions on one of these vs my local Bestbuy ? Just looking for movie playback, web browsing maybe netflix while travelling. Seems to be good feedback from the seller. It was free shipping up till yesterday - with that it would have been an easier decision.

DON'T! For not much more you could get a Nexus 7 and have a much better user experience, or simply get a Playbook with 32gb as they are down to $119 now.

That is a slow tablet. I doubt it can play back Netflix, or higher resolution video.

Thanks for the feedback. Just after posting - saw the sale on the playbook. I also see a couple used for sale near me - $100 for 16 GB - may be a good deal to be had with the retail sales right now.

I had bought the 7 inch tablet from ebay last year. It was just while I could buy the "real" thing. The touch screen portion was terrible. Google play was not even supported, it was a clone of it. Where is the tablet now? Somewhere deep in my closet with other useless electronics. Buyer beware...
