I've been offered a Folio 100 for an amazing price, and, since I've been gagging for a Tablet for some time, and my PRIMARY use will be for ComicRack, I was just curious to hear some opinions.
I heard the device has some software issues, but, once rooted, works like a charm.
any first-hand experiences?
I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!

I took a quick look and the reviews are pretty poor...



I think you should think twice before jumping on to the price offered.

I've read a few reviews myself in the past hours, and most of them are bordering on the negative. However, most of them seem to criticize the custom Android version. That should easily be solved. There are a few dev forums out there and it seems you can easily root the device and install a fully-functional version, market et al.
The viewing angles, now that's a different thing. I must admit, I'm not generally too picky with things, and don't expect to be reading it while doing my contortionist moves, but if reading in bed or the train is going to be a problem, that's a deal breaker. I had my eye set on the ASUS Transformer, but, since I'll be able to bring this home for about 100€, straight from the factory (don't ask, don't tell), I'm seriously considering it.

A friend of mine got one, so I'm probably going to get a real look at it during the week.
I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!

in terms of performance Toshiba folio 100 has builtin Nvidia Tegra 250, which is at least can boost performance as compared to other processors, I bought it for amazing price back in 2012 my primary use was watching movies and comicrack app.
