HP Touchpad refurb


It's all about price. The Nexus will make a lot of people think twice about buying a Touchpad, but if the price is in the (very) low 200's, I'd recommend it as the only reasonable choice for a 10 in. tablet. CM9 tweaking is good fun.

Refurb arrived like a new product. Build and material quality very high. Using CM9, this is a very feature-rich device for a great price. Rooting and installing the CM9 android took a bit of time, but the online docs are excellent, so no problems at...

A very reflective touchscreen makes readability poor with bright backlight or out-f doors. It's a great night-time e-reader, but don't bother taking it to the beach

HP Touchpad 32 GB


1. Core hardware components are of very good quality ; 2. CM9 installs easily! Then you get the entire Android market to play with ; 3. Device had virtually no signs of use/ damage - despite being a refurb ; 4. Newegg shipping rocks - as usual

The only con I saw so far was with the USB data/ charging cable. This is one of the flimiest cables I have seen! The end that connects to the touchpad got bent within a week (probably a result of plugging it in without being perfectly horizontal), and...

Great Android Tablet


Maybe I'll boot into WebOS one day if I get bored.

This "refurbished" tablet was in such good condition that I actually didn't remember that it was a refurb until I looked at the item description when writing this review. I installed Cyanogenmod9 right away with no issues, so I can't say much about...

Really none at all. The camera doesn't work in CyanogenMod9 yet, but that most likely will be fixed in time. One issue to look out for is the storage space on the tablet. I ordered this 32GB model, but Newegg actually sent me the 16GB model instead....

Great tablet but not at this price.


I dont know why newegg is selling these for 100 more then they should. Usually Newegg has fair/competitive prices, just not this time. IMO either wait for Newegg to lower due to lack of sales, or buy a different tablet at the $200 mark (Blackberry...

Can run Android but if you leave it alone, WebOS does a great job at browsing the internet, flash runs amazing

They are no longer supported, HP dropped the touchpad and their price dropped to Ninty-Nine dollars ; So not worth the Two Hundred they're asking, Esp for Refurbed models

Excellent tablet for browsing, long battery.


I have had this now for almost a month and can not be any more happy with the HP Touchpad. I have read some comments about battery and I guess it must differ. Mine has very long battery life, I charge it every 5-6 days with 2-3 hours use each day and...

My only con would be that WebOS is not the norm as iPad is virtually monopolizing everything thus the amount of apps will be far less. However the ones that are out there seem to be more for "intellectual" kind rather than "cool or playing" kind

Can tell it was not new


With the bad USB cable and the messed up rubber around the screen, it isn't worth the price.

First for the good. Screen is great. No backlight bleed like the Asus Transformer. Feels really well built

USB cable that came with it will not charge it unless I wiggle it. I took the one from my cell phone and it worked fine, so I got a dud cable. Also, the rubber around the screen is chewed up. Not super noticable, but it looks bad. Very careless repair job

Great product


I over clocked my touchpad to 1.8 ghz and runs great now all I have to do is set up dual booting with android operating system. Can't go wrong with this tablet.

Price, easy to mod, great quality, fun to use and very easy

no full size usb port

Excellent Buy To Load Up Latest Android OS


Until you load up the android, you may feel it doesn't have much to offer except for regular browsing and some games. But once you load up android as a second option during booting time, you will find this amazing beating all other expensive models in...

Unbeatable price to compare with any other good Android tablets ; Comfortable size (Width/length) to read books in vertical position ; Able to Load Up latest android OS than its comes on other Android devices ; Fast processors ; Most widely used Micro...

None so far

Great tablet if you like the old Palm OS


Personally I love this thing. I use it to read, check email, play games, surf the web, watch movies (except for netflix who won't approve it at this point). It's better than having a laptop in many cases and so much lighter... oh yeah, and the battery...

So I've owned an android tablet and this web-os tablet... and I like the web-os much better. It might not be as versatile as the android is (after all, HP kinda gave up on it) but it's a great multi-purpose tablet for just about any occasion. Oh, and...

Well, since HP gave up on the web-os it's not quite as popular which means it's sometimes a little harder to find apps for it, but since I refuse to buy an i-pad (anti-apple, don't ask) and it's so much more powerful than any droid I've used, I'm...

Ipad killer


Buy the touch point. It makes life so much easier.

Cheap. Huge screen. WebOs is great for general use. Able to load Android- cyanogenMod tenderloin. Super easy to dual boot webos. I rarely boot into WebOs now. Charges via regular micro USB, not a proprietary cable (looking at you iPad)

The USB cable was defective. Not really a problem as I have a million micro USB for my other devices. Not as thin as iPad and is slippery. I live in fear of the touch pad flying out of my hands
