I'll get the bad points out of the way first. The white back panel has become slightly creaky after a few days heavy use. There's no bluetooth or GPS (although you can add a 3G dongle). The Micro SD card slot is difficult to access with a tiny card and large hands, and occasionally the tablet can run a little slow. I doubt it would handle the more taxing applications, but these are my only complaints, and to be honest at this price, these are small niggles to complain about.

I spotted this tablet PC on a competitor website and the price was so low it felt almost criminal not to take a punt. The reviews for the device were also extremely favourable, so I decided to have a go.

Apart from the niggles I mentioned, this tablet is astounding value for money. There's 8GB installed internal memory which is plenty for general use. You can store quite a few films on there or plenty of MP3s. You can also put in a 32GB micro SD card (Sandisk ones can be found for peanuts on Amazon), which would give you 40GB of space, which I think for general use would be more than sufficient. The operating system is Google Android, and having never used it before I've found it to be very intuitive, and makes good use of the tablet's functions. You can alter the orientation of the tablet PC, and it flips the screen round to match (just like the iPad).

The tablet's screen is also capacitive, which means that it's multitouch and it allows you to zoom in on stuff, such as a geographical area in Google Earth.

As the tablet is running on the latest Google Android, there aren't any crashing problems that were reported on this tablet supporting earlier versions of Android. You've also got access to all the usual wealth of Android apps through Google Play.

I bought an "open box" Astro+, meaning it was even cheaper than normal. Sure, it's a cheap device, and there are a few signs of that - but if you want something which works, does what it should, and does it well, this is fine. It has quite a large bezel, meaning the device is physically a bit bigger than you might expect. Hopefully that translates to good battery life.

First off, I ran a SunSpider benchmark. It's one of the most commonly used tests for Android hardware. The result was 6715ms (the lower the number the better). That's a bit quicker than the original iPad was when it was launched. Sure, the newest iPad is much faster, and even an iPad2 completes the test in 2000ms. But then, Apple are still asking £329 for an iPad 2 - I could have had six Astro+ for that. Again, for some context and comparison, when the original Samsung Galaxy Tab launched just under two years ago (for £500), PC Pro commented "SunSpider JavaScript benchmark completed in a snappy seven seconds. [...]. More recently, the Tab 2 (7inch, same as this), scored 2235. And cost £199. And the Nexus 7 - among the new generation of "cheap" tablets, scored 1779. So over 3 times as quick. So you could spend £150 odd and get something better. But this was far enough away from £150 for me to think it worth checking out. So far, I'm pleased I did.

But enough tech speak. There's a few basics we need to cover.
(a) This device includes Google Play (formerly the Android Marketplace). Most of the sub-£100 don't. It's a definite bonus.
(b) It plays HD Youtube clips without any problem.
(c) It plays BBC iPlayer TV just fine (the Android app doesn't seem to offer HD).
(d) Google Maps works just fine - scrolling around a redrawing is really responsive.

I bought this to see if I actually needed a tablet, as the usual suspects are so expensive, so for this price I expected it to be a slow, clunky thing. It isn't. It puts my smartphone to shame as far as speed is concerned and seems to do everything almost perfectly. So the chip is fine, there's 16GB of memory, it accepts a Micro SD card so you can add up to 32GB more, and it just works. I've not given it five stars because the battery is typical for this sort of thing and doesn't last more than four hours constant use, but that's the limit of battery technology, not the tablet itself. Why pay more? A complete bargain and easy recommendation.

I purchased a Sumvision Cyclone Astro as I liked the idea of a tablet and just could not justify the price of IPad. Now I am glad I did, it is perfect for everything I needed a tablet for - watching films, web browsing etc whilst travelling about. It plays every movie format I have thrown at it and plays the files very smoothly. It also fully supports flash based websites. Games downloaded from the Google Play marketplace run great and are very easy to install and the onboard WiFi is good even with weak signals. Battery life is about 3 days in standby with 2-3 hours use per day.

The only downside is that it is made of plastic and the screen is probably not a durable as one fitted to the more expensive tablets but for this price if it does break I can get 4 Astro's for the price of 1 of the top price Apple or Android tablets.

I found this item to be a perfect introduction to tablets without spending a fortune. I had a few initial problems such as refusal to work several times from pressing power button, ( it lit up then turned off) but it seems to have settled down nicely. I was not impressed with the very sparse instructions supplied and have learned what I know so far by trial and error. Apart from that and a few more little niggles I am very happy with this tablet, excellent for storing photos, very good video quality, great for email and an excellent book reader thrown in. Would highly recommend but not for inexperienced users. Anyone tell me how to get BBC iPlayer working???
