I read about this tablet and they liked it at [$],I saw it on sale for [$] and thought it would be a good buy. For what I use if for its great, surfing,music and some games. Checking email and playing. Camera is okay, use your cell if its really important. Great feel, 9inch screen works for me. Very well made product. Expandable memory, got the 32gb card. Could of bouth an Ipad, almost did. Know I have lots of extra $$$$ for me. Overall I think I got a lot for my money.

I have an iPad 3 and wanted an "open" architecture Droid tablet. This tablet is a solid performer with 16GB and a microSD slot. The display is nice and it's not too heavy (unlike my iPad). Speaker volume is good, but quality is about the same as your average laptop. The Lenovo launcher is not the best IMO, but there are lots to choose from on Google Play. Battery life so far is very good. With moderate use it will last at least 10 hours. I've streamed audio or video continuously for 6-8 hours. The only real shortcomings for me are:
The camera - 3MP, basically useless. They obviously had a bunch of these 10 year old pieces in a bin somewhere and decided to get rid of them!
The WIFI OS glitch - A HUGE annoyance. This tablet is plagued by the Android 4.x pains. WIFI shows connected, but your apps cannot access the internet. My workaround is to keep a shortcut on the home screen to quickly cycle it off and on to reset. Bottom line is this mid $200 tablet is worth that price point. With a slightly larger screen and more internal memory than Kindle Fire, Google tablets and most other 7 inchers plus the SD slot made the Lenovo a good choice for me.

Comments about Lenovo 16GB IdeaTab A2109 9" Tablet:

Works great for wifey who likes bigger screen(vs. 7-inch), but hands a little small for 10" when typing on-screen keyboard in landscape mode. Pretty snappy performance, nice screen, and Android ICS+! For my eyes(poor) it's just a tad small for reading some text, but not for that; I would use it myself.

        The quick start guide was not adequate to get started. Need a manual or at least more info to get started. Had to go on live chat to find out how to install micro SDHC card. It took a lot of time and the person helping me had to go to another source to find. They kept trying to tell me the slot above the camera was where it went. That slot was to pry cover off to get to the proper slot.

        First and foremost tablets shouldn't cost as much as laptops. I have trouble coughing up more than $ for a square computer without a keyboard. That said I purchased this as a gift for someone. I was pleasantly surprised with the fluid motion of the screen, must be the Tegra 3 processor. Very underrated tablet.

        Comments about Lenovo 16GB IdeaTab A2109 9" Tablet:

        From a hardware point of view, the A2109 is a top notch tablet. Processor, RAM, and storage are excellent. It's quick and responsive. Build quality is solid, but maybe a little lacking in polish. The 9 inch screen is a perfect size (for me). The ONLY place this tablet falls short is the display. The screen resolution is fine,but the TN display is every bit as bad as most professional reviewers say. Having said that, it's perfectly fine for my uses. It only looks REALLY bad in portrait, and I almost always use mine in landscape. So, as long as you aren't expecting an iPad quality display for $ish dollars, you should be happy with this tablet.Note: At the time of my purchase (1/3/13), Lenovo has started shipping the A2109 with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean.

        I've had the Lenovo IdeaTab for a couple of weeks now. It is such fun to use. It processes everything quickly and feels very comfortable to hold either horizontally or vertically. So far I've used this mostly for browsing the web, checking email and reading. I've been extremely pleased with this tablet!

        I gave this tablet to my wife for Christmas, and played around with it myself. Its a good tablet for the pricepoint. It is not the most popular tablet out there, but is snappy enough and has enough features to satisfy almost everyone. Battery life seems good, and it picked up my wifi signal without a problem. As other have mentiojned, it does not have the best screen, but its not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. A good entry level tablet or a first tablet.

          Ok looked around alot before my purchase wanted as much bang for my buck as possible.
          So after i turned it on i upgraded to 4.1.1 then started to have a play, was very impressed with the speed. We have other tablets and a few newer phones and this new toy goes fast. Handed it to one of the boys and they gave it a good run on a lot of newer games it had no problems no lagging. I was a little worried about the screen after what i had read but it fine. for what we pay for this its easyly worth the money im grabbing a second one

            Comments about Lenovo 16GB IdeaTab A2109 9" Tablet:

            I read about this tablet and they liked it at [$],I saw it on sale for [$] and thought it would be a good buy. For what I use if for its great, surfing,music and some games. Checking email and playing. Camera is okay, use your cell if its really important. Great feel, 9inch screen works for me. Very well made product. Expandable memory, got the 32gb card. Could of bouth an Ipad, almost did. Know I have lots of extra $$$$ for me. Overall I think I got a lot for my money.
