I BOUGHT THIS TABLET BECAUSE AFTER FIRMWARE ISSUE YOU GUYS RE: DID YOUR RATING FOR THIS TABLET. I SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN THE WALMART EXTENDED WARRANTY. THE TABLET WAS HAVING ISSUES WITH IT NOT CHARGING AND THEN IT WOULD START CHARGING AGAIN. THEN IT FINALLY STOPPED CHARGING AL TOGETHER. I WAS TOLD TO SEND THE TABLET BACK TO THE COMPANY ($10 TO DO SO) AND IT WOULD BE REPAIRED ETC. I WAS TOLD BY A SERVICE PERSON IT WAS STILL UNDER WARRANTY AND MORE THAN LIKELY I WOULD GET A NEW TABLET. REALLY. STILL WAITING. THAT WAS A MONTH AGO. I CANT BELIEVE YOU GAVE THIS PRODUCT A GOOD RATING. IF I HAD KNOW IT WAS A PIECE OF JUNK I WOULD NOT BOUGHT IT I WOULD HAVE PASSED.

Comment:
This tablet barely lasted one month. In a month's time, we were already having to delete games for lack of memory and the charging port had come completely loose inside the tablet. Since our 15 day guarantee was up, we had to send the tablet back to the manufacturer. It took them 3 months to repair it and send it back! Less than 24 hours later, the same problem was happening. They have had it this time for 6 weeks. Even speaking with a manager, the only information is that it will take a little longer. This is ridiculous!

Charging Port Fell Out

Comment:
I bought 2 of these tablets for my sons, hoping that the charging port defect would be fixed. It isn't. My son had this tablet for less than 1 month. I was the one that would plug & unplug the charger just to make sure that he didn't mess it up on accident. It fell out anyway. The protection plan that the retailer offers would be used up if I were to get a new product because of the defect in this one. To side-step that, I purchased a new identical tablet, and returned the broken one within the 15 day window they give for returns for a full refund, while still keeping my protection plan.<br /><br />The main reason we bought this tablet was because of the 16GB memory it boasts. It is a lie. Although there is 16 available, the way they have set up the memory partition only allows 1GB for downloads. From there, you are able to transfer the app to the SD, but most apps won't transfer. That 1GB fills up FAST. I will be buying another tablet in 4 months for my other son's birthday - you can guarantee that it will NOT be a Monster!<br /><br />I have to say I am incredibly disappointed in this product, and can't believe that Monster would allow their name to be put on such junk.
