Computer Shopper

Considering where features and pricing are going with competing tablets, this one may have a limited shelf life

from Computer Shopper
While the SuperNova surpasses its predecessors, the current competition is mighty tough. Unless we uncover some major problem with the Amazon Kindle Fire, that model could very well snuff out Pandigital's latest entry—perhaps, forcing the company to drop the price drastically. And that could make it a good value to snap up on sale... Full review
Cnet

Though priced to compete, the Pandigital Supernova lacks the performance and features to seal the deal

from Cnet

There's no more important component of a tablet than its display, as the primary and sometimes only way to interface with the device. So it should go without saying that it helps if the screen is at least bright, with a resolution that keeps details sharp. With the SuperNova, Pandigital seems to have skimped on the quality of the screen to get its price down to $200. This would be bad enough, but unfortunately, it doesn't stop there. The SuperNova is missing full access to the Android Market, and although comfortable to hold, it feels like a toy in the hand instead of a useful gadget. The f... Full review

The Pandigital SuperNova offers an 8-inch capacitive display and longer battery life, but it suffers from sluggish performance and bad design

from Laptop Magazine
At $229, the Pandigital SuperNova improves on some of the problem points of the Nova. However, the addition of a capacitive screen, improved battery life, and cameras with more megapixels isn't enough to make the SuperNova a viable competitor to the $199 Kindle Fire. Plagued by poor design, an ugly washed-out screen, and a limited app offering, the Pandigital SuperNova can't hold a candle to the Kindle Fire... Full review
PC Magazine

A fine tablet for Android geeks to hack, but average buyers should look for a tablet with a better screen

from PC Magazine
Hack this tablet. Please. The Pandigital SuperNova could be the Amazon Kindle Fire for the geek crowd. An Android tablet with decent specs from a manufacturer that's completely open to people rooting, modding, and re-installing the operating system. There's just one catch: Pandigital has used a dim, low-res screen, which seriously reduces the appeal of this tablet... Full review
