To conclude, we just can't think why you would buy this tablet, as the price precludes it even being a budget purchase. If you want a 7-inch tablet to do the absolute basics, then this will suffice, but we'd recommend spending an extra £100 for a Samsung Galaxy Tab or Dell Streak.

Inconsistent performance, unpredictable battery life and the lack of a proper Android Market means anyone who has used a pricier tablet will be disappointed. We understand that the Scroll is cheap and that a degree of corner-cutting is to be expected, but that doesn’t stop it from being too fl...

RAM allocation and interface leave much to be desired

from Tech Advisor

We really wish Storage Options had paid attention to ensuring the usability of the Scroll, as the hardware has potential and the inclusion of an HDMI-out port for hooking it up to a large-screen TV is appealing. Unfortunately, barely anything we tried on the Scroll worked with any degree of satisfaction.

The specs look good and so does the price, but this tablet is slow, sluggish and generally horrible to use

from PC Pro

All in all, then, we’re not very impressed with the Scroll. Although it looks fine on paper, in practice it’s a truly horrid device to use: too slow, too sluggish and too limited in its software. If you want a cheap 7in tablet, the Creative ZiiO 7in(even with its resistive screen) is a far better bet than this.

Inconsistent performance, unpredictable battery life and the lack of a proper Android Market means anyone who has used a pricier tablet will be disappointed. We understand that the Scroll is cheap and that a degree of corner-cutting is to be expected, but that doesn’t stop it from being too flawed to recommend. We recommend saving up a while longer for the far superior 7-inch Galaxy Tab.
