Detailed review
In general, especially considering the price point, this is a good device. It's tougher than it looks and can handle what my 2 year old dishes out when I'm not looking. However, we had to put on a new OS because the out of the box one was way too oriented to buying things, which is dangerous when you're letting your kid use it to stay occupied while you try to take a breather.

What OS/ROM did you put on it?

Sorry, I misspoke. Didn't put a new OS on it but a new home screen called Go Launcher. Works pretty well, although the browser won't work in landscape mode, which is annoying to me. The two year old doesn't really care about that.
