Which is a pure example of why this is going cold, It's funny how people have an opinion on something they evidently don't understand.

Fancy comparing this to a cheap Android tablet.

Heat.

I own one, still use it and it sis great at what it does, but £60 in 2014 - no way

Its unsupported, so is effectively a media player and a (slow) browser.

If it came with the magnetic charger and was about £40 then just (only just) maybe as a 64GB media player with great speakers.

It is ancient by tech standards and will become less and less useful. Really, really don't.

Me too, it's not like it's much better built, has a better screen, a fairly strong OS and you can load android apps onto it. Oh wait.

As the owner of one of these and various cheap tablets like a nook hd and asus memo pad, I can say the playbook has sat untouched on the shelf for the last 6 months whilst the others are used regularly.
Blackberry should have listened to the masses and opened up their systems to run android or at least google play store.
Their app store is quite unbelievably bad. It makes that side all but useless.
No expansion means when you eventually manage to get a few movies on (that's a feat in itself) your memory is full.
You just have to look at where Blackberry are now to see how many bad decisions they make.

I appreciate the comment, Although I am somewhat confused by it, I also have a Memopad 10", paid £140 for it, Not quite sure on the capabilities of the Nook HD, are they of similar build quality with HDMI out and 64gb storage and in the same price range as this?

You will notice that my comment towards the other member stated that comparing this to a cheap Android tablet is absurd.

Thing is the Nook HD/HD+ is built on Android and can (e.g. Cyanogen) be converted in to a very nice in-crippled Android tablet with full access to Google Play.

The Playbook has been abandoned by RIM, sideloading Android apps gets less and less successful by the day.

It is a nice but unsupported piece of hardware that is waiting to die. No way is it worth £60 with the standard (non-magnetic) charger. Even with it I think £60 is too much,

I have one and love it but am aware it is like an old car that you know might get through one more service before you have to look elsewhere.

In fairness the posted one is 64gb and mine was 16gb. I do regret buying now. At the time it was a good price (way more than this) but looking back still too much.
It was just before the nexus 7 released and the market exploded.
My nook hd plus runs standard and already has full access to play store with a 64gb card in it. 32g already built in.

For the money I'd be going for the Nook HD+ - I bought one from Morgan's from a post on here for £65. An awesome screen. The stock Android isn't the best but it works. I'm thinking of putting CM10/11 on it. The only reason I've not done it already is that EVERY time I've rooted a phone/tablet or messed about with ROM's I've encountered problems - seems I'm very fortunate this way!
But the screen is amazing and it's 9" with a micro sd slot so it's much much better than this for a media player in my opinion and more usable all round.

I will say the speakers on the Playbook are the best I've heard - Nexus included.
You can try it all from a fast SD card (even dual boot) and take zero risk with the Nook. Have a read up, out of the two the Nook over the playbook all day long - unless it is mainly for a media player. My mums old Nook has Cyanogen on it now and is excellent with its new owner - but non standard charger, and only community support for Android.

If you want an Android get an Android would be my call.

In terms of quality of build these far outstrip a cheap android tablet. But as previous comments suggested lack of a decent store lets it down.. and now that they have pretty much abandoned the platform it's only going to get worse. It is a real shame - these were excellent bits of kit, that with better marketing and better thought around access to Aps could have been a real contender. As with earlier comment £60.00 for a refurb though is not a good deal.

Waste of time. I have one sitting somewhere doing nothing. Pointless 64GB when nothing to use it for. Browser is slow and most sites unusable these days. As for build quality - the micro USB port for charging and connecting to it etc is far too flimsy and mine broke within a few weeks.

Hi, sorry if that was all meant for me I think you miss read mate - I've already got one Paired with a bluetooth speaker its bob-on. I tried the dual boot but it was overly laggy and just generally slow. I'm not expecting it to be lightening running off the internal memory but hopefully significantly smoother. Did you set up CM10 or 11?

Paid £64 two years ago for the mother in law to be. Only thing it's good for now is browsing the Web.

Screen is terrible, browser unusable and the so called built quality, it's still plastic, big bezel, heavier, thicker and slower than anything you can pick of Groupon. Great front facing camera but won't run Skype, bbm or anything. No offence to Op and buzz, great contributors whose posts I enjoy but this is a waste of money. No Netflix etc. And YouTube app that was last updated in 2012, sluggish iplayer not much use for the undeniably good speakers. Absolutely avoid.

Re 64gb,with the cable provided took about 10 hours to transfer 30gb of mp3. Really wonder why people feel loyalty to this unsupported, crappy old tat. Just load up hukd on the browser and count the minutes...

Not a comment on this deal, playbook or hudl - but You really can't use 'versus' as any form of reliable guide. The positives/negatives are provided by commenters on the site, are unverified, sometimes wrong and often opinion based. I've seen versus where it states clearly something doesn't have a feature when that's false, or states an invalid comparison ('has latest Arm chip' when comparing a tab to an x86 windows device) etc. It's not an edited or supervised site.

strange, I use hukd on mine throughout the day and don't see a problem. Some other sites however....
The loyalty is really because it was a great device at the time. Speakers, Screen, Build, Cameras (both), video calling, even Flash in the browser, and games were good etc etc. As someone said above, it's like an old car.
However, it is quite clear that it is outclassed today (yet still technically better in some areas than a lot of cheap tabs) and I'm one of the biggest supporters but wouldn't recommend this. If you have one, it's still fit for purpose - a great media device, and mail/web/occasional games. But no point in paying £60 for.

Although it connects to Bluetooth speakers/headphones, you can't control the volume from the playbook, so the bluetooth device must have its own volume control.

I still use mine as an ebook reader, but it is a pain. I use my second one as a clock :-(

I've got 50gb+ of audio books and family episodes on my playbook and wouldn't travel without it.

Yes, the browser is painful these days, but when I'm online at hoe or travelling its phone or PC.

What the Playbook does well, it does very well indeed.

I agree with the above posts. I bought one of these and used it for two days before realising just how dated it had become and re-selling on eBay for more than I paid originally. I understand when people say that they've used them solely as a unit for watching videos but it makes little sense when an Android tablet can do so much more for you without the need to spend much more.

I bought this from currys when they were doing a deal on it,sent three back in a row,various faults,finally gave up got my money back and bought a kindle fire instead,the BlackBerry,when it did work it was so tedious,took six minutes to start up,the transfer of media took forever,app market was limited to expensive and often irrelevant apps,God knows what a so called refurbished model is going to be like more than two years on,this device was admittedly polished and had high specs for its time but it was all fur coat and no knickers,the supposed 64 gb storage is no good if there is no enjoyment of the product,it will not be supported I should imagine,even a cheap nexus or kindle fire will blow this dated toy out of the water,also I am sure you will kiss goodbye to your money if you buy from eBay,for an extra £20 you can buy something better from a store with confidence and return it if faulty,usually without difficulty and they even give you a warranty.

i reckon nearly all the commentators here would pay £20 for one.
2nd hand and 64gb.

Garbage mine has sat in a draw for 12 months
