Consumer Reports is taking a once troubled tablet -- off of it's don't buy list. After the Monster M7 tablet froze up during testing, Consumer Reports rated it a don't buy.

Monster has an updated version of its software and once updated, the tablets ran without a problem in Consumer Reports' test labs. So Consumer Reports has lifted its don't buy rating.  

If you own a Monster M7 tablet and are experiencing problems, Consumer Reports says go to mymonstertablet.com and follow the instructions under the "firmware update" tab to get the latest version of software. 

Be aware some of the Monster M7 tablets currently being sold still have the old software.
 
As for the tablet itself, which is sold exclusively at Walmart for $150, Consumer Reports gave it 67 points out of 100, not high enough to be recommended.  

Among its weaknesses are a relatively short battery life and lack of a camera flash and a finger-print resistant screen.
