I have the older version of this, and it's been 2 years, and still going very strong. So I thought I'd get the newer version for my second child, and this proves a great buy. I've been using it for a week now, and it works just as great as the one before, except, this has an even bigger screen, and thinner too! VOX is also a button away, compared to the previous model which had it hidden in the menus. Its boot up time takes slightly longer, but that doesn't bother me.
