Re: Craig CMP741D/E from CVS: reviews?
About four weeks ago, I bought one of these to try. My Archos 80 g9 is dying. Sadly, I cannot give the CVS Craig CMP 741 at thumbs up. Granted, the wifi stayed connected very solidly (unlike my Archos which is getting worse by the day). But, that was the only good part about the Craig - at least with the one that I got. First, the aspect ratio was messed up bad. When viewing in "widescreen" images were stretched way too wide. When viewing "page wise" images were stretched too high. I double checked this with known perfect circle images and it was crazy obvious. Second, I also had trouble with the keyboard. For some reason, the keyboard was small and that made typing harder. Third, the general picture sharpness was bad. Forth, you have to obtain apps from Getjar or Amazon. You cannot get any direct from Google itself. Amazon wouldn't have been a problem, but Getjar was unacceptable. For these reasons, I returned the tablet to CVS for a refund. If my experience is any indication, I'd avoid the CVS Craig CMP741d.
