My words after using it for a month

Overall: Firstly, I am not a gadget freak and, I am not interested in latest specs/features. And, this is my first tablet. I bought this for use of entire family. My experience of using this tab in the order of my priorities:n1. Browsing - 9.4 inch screen is comfortable for browsing without frequent enlarging of the page. I am using both Android browser as well as the Chrome. I felt Android browser is more smoother and faster. nn2. Reading - documents, ppt's, pdfs - options available for viewing and they are good. I have downloaded Kingsoft office for xls support. It works seamlessly. Favorable points here are less weight of the tab, thin physic and bright screen that help in reading comfort.nn3. Games, for kids - My kids started playing subway surfer and temple run. Even I tried my hand in there. Never felt a lag or slowness in response. Despite of two to three hours of continuous play by my two devils taking turns the tab did not heat up.nn4. Movies, music - I did not watch one complete movie but my kids are watching lot of you tube videos. Video and audio quality are superb. Though I have set my expectations for video quality, audio quality is really a surprise for me.nn5. Connectivity - I think this feature cuts across all the above. I have tried all kinds of possible connections.na. Wifi - no flaw identified so far. Very smoothly connected to my internet router. I have even tried connecting to my mobile via portable hotspot feature, the connection was very smooth.nb. 3G - I found it difficult to insert the SIM into the tab. I have struggled for about twenty mins to fit it right. Once understood the trick now I am able to put it in place in no time. I found the connectivity was not that smooth. It may be a problem with signal strength at the place where I tried this. I need to further experience this feature to conclude my view.nn6. External memory - Connection to my 32GB pen drive was smooth and I played few video clips from the pen drive. I also tried opening documents from there. The Explorer is very handy in browsing through files (either on external memory or on internal memory). In fact when I played the 'Bolt' movie from the pen drive the speed at which movie started playing on the tab was amazing and forwarding & rewinding operations have faster response on this tab when compared to playing the same movie on my laptop.nnHowever, one point to note here. I am not able to connect to my 1TB external hard drive. When spoke to Milagrow support, I have been told that the external hard drive needs to be externally powered. My WD hard drive is powered through USB. I do not have one that is externally powered, and I could not test this feature. So, I cannot say anything at this time on this feature.nn7. Standby time - Initial ten days or so we have operated it for longer times (out of mere enthusiasm of using it) and, it required charging once every day. Now, the usage came down to daily 2 to 3 hours (it will further reduce soon). Now, battery stays for around 3 to 4 days.nnLast but not the least, I am not able to find a case to fit my tab. It is not available in flipkart and in any of other e-retailers. It is not even available in market in Hyd. Especially as my kids often use this, my heart rate goes up when they use it as the tab does not have any cover. Not able to find a solution for this.nnOverall, I am satisfied with the product. And, hoping that its performance shall last in this manner for ever.
