My backlight broke after two months and because it's rooted I can't even get warranty.

Also the market helper is finiky as stated above. I don't recommend this product.

If rooting causes compatibility problem (I just sideload or use external apk for it myself and never really run into big problem) this might not be a good deal. Non-rooted stock firmware Arc 10HD is extremely slow to use. I pretty much had to root it.

Once installed CM it is quite fast though. Nearly comparable with a Galaxy 10 S

There's other tablet options on Amazon. They're cheap, but I mean you get what you pay for.
Aren't we all RFDers to avoid getting what we pay for? To get a lot more than what we payed for?

I bought the 10hd. Planning to root and play some basic games on it. I have been reading that there are many Google app incompatibility through playstore. Can anyone let me know if there is another playstore that I can use to this tablet once rooted?

I have a 7 HD, bought less than a year ago from LiquidationMania.com. They also carry cases and accessories for Kobo products.

+ The screen is great for the money
+ The 1GB RAM is actually not as bad as you think with Android 4.x
+ Youtube is fine when using the headphone jack

- So many of the Apps in the store are incompatible with this device, the ones that are were made years ago and have no support.
- Some picture heavy web sites (CNN and ESPN for example) are incredibly sluggish and unbearable to use.
- The speakers I found to be horrible for music or movies.

i found cm buggy. im rooted but i went back to stock because i kept having problems and dude hadn't updated it in months. it's just one quasi-dev guy who hacked together his first port of cm from another device if i understand correctly.

personally all i think it is good for is reading comics and magazines.

Is the 10" good to replace my Nexus 7 2012? TIA
I did this about a year ago, and rooted it and installed CM. It's fine, but it can be on the laggy side (it's inconsistent I find). When it works, it works well. The screen is nice.

So where to get cheap case for 10 inch?
Also anyway to make stock go faster? Does it suffer memory not being handle properly like first nexus 7?
