I have one almost identical to that, except that I paid $79. It has the same processor and storage space (and add-on SD card), runs Android, has the built-in camera, recorder, and everything. I see no differences, really.

It is an iPad knock-off. I can see that many of the directions and apps in the menus are Chinese in the "aPad". So were mine, but not so many that I couldn't use it. I actually bought it as a book reader, thinking it ridiculous to spend $200+ on something that only read books when I could get an entire computer for a fraction of the cost.

I bought it, downloaded and installed some free Android apps (it connected easily to my WiFi), including 2 free book readers, and have been nothing but pleased with it. The battery time is short (1.5-2 hours), but I fashioned my own external for those long trips where I want to read.

It comes with a stylus, but the touch sensitivity is adjustable, and I find it easier to just use my fingers to flip pages and start apps.

It plays movies and music quite well, though the movies had to be converted to a lower quality to play smoothly. They look good on the screen (and I watch movies that mostly have subtitles, so I have to be able to read those). They play as well as they do on my MP5 player.

So far, very pleased with it. But I wouldn't pay more than the roughly $120 they go for on Ebay.
