DO. NOT. BUY.

 

None. Literally none

I wasn't expecting much for fifty bucks, but this piece fell well below those expectations. It runs on some form of embedded mobile Windows which is truly painful to try to operate. I could not get it to do anything. And like I say, my expectations...

Product not as advertised

 

Product description says it is equipped with 500 MB of RAM, but the System utility shows that it has only 384 MB of RAM. If I hadn't been expecting to purchase something extremely limited in capability anway, I'd be asking for my money back. Caveat...

Small form factor. So cheap, not afraid to break or lose

Youtube app worked once, then never worked again. Cannot find any apps for WEC7 that are not drivers, utilities, or developer-related

Uberiod 12 make this a great tablet!

 

download uberiod 12 and this turns into an android 2.2 tablets with keyboard and 3x usbs with wifi for under $50, what more can you ask for

Win CE is terrible, i dunno why they even bother pre-installing. it is slow, barely functioning and has no good use, I feel I am back in 1999 using it

Easily Modified to BECOME Useful

 

If you do not plan to change the operating system, you are probably going to be disappointed with this little device. If you are willing to do the update with Uberoid (lots of instructions are on the web) then you will find it to be a decent little...

Small. Lightweight. 3 USB ports. SD Card Reader

As this comes it is not very useful due to having Windows Embedded on it. Even in the manual the user is warned "do not compare the performance to Windows XP, Vista or 7". And they are right! The O/S is quite limited. But, I knew that before I ordered,...

basic netbook makes awesome Android Netbook

 

do some research into uberoid, it was easy to install you just have to find it (thats the hard part), i used v12 universal with option 8 because thats for 7' netbooks, makes a world of difference, if your use to Android this is fun with a mouse instead...

Lightweight, full keyboard, lots of usb ports quick starts, Upgradeable see below, cheap price

Windows Embedded needs to be put down like the dog it is, upgrade to Win CE 7 available through Sylvania is no better, Would love to see a free upgrade to win ce 2009 instead of the sampler from Microsoft. The included IE is useless to browse the...

Junk

 

None

Keyboard is too small to type on. Windows CE 7 is terrible. Extremely slow. The product is so poorly designed that it barely functions

Consumer review by:

Dont expect a full netbook!

 

There is an update to the entire OS on the manufacturers website. Highly recommended if you do purchase this product. Really wouldnt recommend this for anyone other than smaller children who want basic internet access, or someone who wants an...

Very small and lightweight. Long battery life. Capable web browser

Windows CE 7 is harder to find and install apps for than CE6. Internet Explorer basically expects a touchscreen which this doesnt have. Was not refurbished software-wise at all. Slow, even for its specs

SYLVANIA SYNET7WIC

 

Consumer review by:

Nearly useless with current os

 

If you're looking for a netbook, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a smartphone with a keypad, 3 usb's and a 7" screen for supercheap and you're willing to ditch Windows Embedded Compact 7 then you won't be dissapointed. out of the box, the thing...

Cheap, and everything worked as designed. Works fine now with Uberdroid rom. Before the new rom, it could surf the web on a very limited basis. Youtube worked. Now it's a lot more functional. And droid apps are available to make it more useful

Windows Embedded Compact 7 is pretty useless. Wouldn't play mp3's, can't download software, no apps available even if you could download them onto the synet7wic. No success getting it to run flash so internet was limited

Consumer review by:

Second One

 

I gave it as a gift two a tech friend to add to his tool bag tool. I shall keep the RMA replace ment for myself.

Every thing worked

The first one I order work but would not charge battery had to RMA it
