The Search is over! Tablet I chose for my 3 kids.

After a long search for the perfect tablet for my 3 kids I finally found something I am 100% happy with!
Keep in mind I have 3 kids (8g, 6g, 4b) and will need 3 of the one tablet I purchase.
In the beginning after asking our readers what they prefer I was leaning towards an Amazon Kindle HD.  But priced at $199.99 x 3 = $600, it was do-able but I knew I could find something just as great for less.
The Tablet I chose is Visual Land Prestige 7L, Priced at only $89.99 on Walmart .com !!!
 thats right only $89.99 a price everyone can afford. ($89.99 x 3 = $300 1/2 price of the kindle fire hds)
My main concerns when choosing a tablet were, Android based, Camera, Amazon App Store, Netflix, Expandable Memory, different Colors a plus but not a must.
When I found this tablet on Walmart .com I figured what the heck lets buy one give it a try and if I like it enough Ill buy 2 more.  If I didn't like it I can always return it in store no hassle's. 


So I bought the 1 tablet in color Blue for DS, it arrived in less then a week via fedex, a day before it was due.  I was so excited to open it up and give it a try, it felt like Christmas morning.   I turned on the tablet only to find it was dead :( boo!  so pre-warning make sure to charge the tablet before Christmas morning and the problem is solved.   So I plugged it in and then turned it on still some excitement left in me.
Oddly enough I felt old and out of date (not being a tablet owner already) lol.
However it was easy to use, easy to navigate, and in no time I had things figured out.
The Tablet comes with some great pre-loaded apps including Netflix, Skype, Amazon Kindle, DocumentstoGo, Angry Birds, Sprinkle, YouTube, Evernote, GetJar, 1Mobile Market.
With one click Amazon App Store was downloaded as well.  I went to the amazon app store and downloaded some of the Free Apps A Day I have been collecting over the past few months (I post them daily here on the blog for you to grab free as well).  I then got the Memory almost full message ***which I knew would happen, and that is why it was important to me it had expandable memory!

ALSO want to point out that with the tablets I purchased a  2 year warranty for only $9.00 each.  
Which covers, Spills, Drops, Cracked Screens, & More!

Long Story Short. I love this tablet, Highly Recommend it if your on the hunt for a tablet for yourself or the kids.  I bought 2 more last night.  Now we will have Blue, Pink, and Purple.
I used amazon and bought some covers, screen protectors and bags to go along with them.
I also went through EBATES before I bought the tablets earning myself 4% cash back on something I was going to purchase anyways!

UPDATE:
I have recived the other 3 tablets I ordered (4 total my 3 kiddos and my niece)
