I have been using my Motorola Xoom Android Tablet for about a year. After a year of use, it still works just as good as when it was brand new. It is a very well made product from what I can see. For the most part, it is very fast and easy to use. It connects to wifi very quickly and even offers an option to connect automatically in the future. After connected to wifi, the internet browser loads very quickly and does its job very well. Since it’s an Android, it runs off of the Google Play store for apps and app updates. I had never used the Google Play Store before purchasing this tablet, but I have to say, it works pretty nicely. This doesn’t have much to do with the tablet itself, but one thing I have noticed about the Google Play store, is that they are usually behind the App Store’s products. For instance, when Instagram first became popular, it took months to be available to download from the Google Play Store. This isn’t really a complaint about the tablet itself, but just something to think about when making a big purchase like this. One upside to using a Google-based product is the fact that your Google account can be used as a platform for everything on your tablet. Your Gmail, Google+, and YouTube accounts can all be accessed right from the main screen and through the shortcut screens of the tablet. Another upside to this is that if you should happen to get locked out of your tablet (If you forget the lock code you set,) you can use your Google account instead. A screen will come up asking if you forgot and if you would like to access your Google account to log you back into your tablet. This came especially in handy for me, when I got locked out. So much easier than having to reset the whole system (and possibly lose all of your stuff!)
In terms of deciding on an Android tablet to actually purchase, I’d say I made a good choice with the Motorola Xoom. It works very well for me and the reasons why I’d use it. It’s easy to navigate, has crisp, sharp screen quality, and loads rather quickly. There are more options now than when I made this purchase about a year ago, however.

Another helpful review done by HardwareSecrets.com, (who are known for “uncomplicating the complicated”) gives you a step by step guide through purchasing and getting started with this tablet. Including pictures, it gives you a play-by-play of the whole experience. Very, very useful when deciding whether or not to make this big purchase! All in all, this has been a great purchase for me. I find it very practical and useful. I’d recommend this tablet to anyone looking for a device to surf the internet, download apps, take pictures, and access online accounts like Google and Youtube.
