Music & Audio Controls
Because the operating system of the VIZIO VTab is Android 2 based, users are damned to suffer through one of Google's older attempts at a media management interface that graced some of the worst tablets we've ever reviewed. Though the VIZIO VTab performs considerably better than those aforementioned tablets, chances are good that you'll be rooting for the battery-protecting automatic screen dimmer to kick in.
Much like other iterations of Android 2 tablets, you can create playlists, browse via a scrub bar, or organize what few files you can fit onto the hard drive. The interface is very ugly, but it gets the job done.
Music & Audio Management
When you download or import your music, most of your files will automatically be sorted by filetype via the Android operating system, with your files showing up in the music folder. You can also drop them directly into this folder using your USB connection if you have a PC or the correct software installed on a Mac.

Music & Audio Battery Life
Because the screen can be automatically shut off after a period of inactivity, if you were to listen to music and do nothing else, the battery will last you over 24 hours of straight playback. We know you'll probably do more than use the VIZIO VTab as a standalone music player, but be aware that this isn't such a huge drain on the battery.
