3.0 out of 5 stars Not as described..., 12 Feb. 2014

The features shown below the item do not apply to all versions. There is no iPad pocket on the 10L version but yet it does have a removable camera insert. Very misleading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only £3.49 in the supermarket!!!, 6 Dec. 2013
I cannot understand why these are so highly priced on Amazon when the local supermarket has them for £3.49. To charge over £7 for the same product is a complete rip-off.

2.0 out of 5 stars Looks nothing like the picture, 24 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK, this was cheap and it looks it. Cutout does not fit the tablet correctly with the top section not flush against the device thus obstructing the front facing camera. Also looks nothing like the picture with an insert that covers most if the tablet sides, where is this in the product picture? Gets two stars as the cheap stylus is not bad.

4.0 out of 5 stars No bad, not bad at all, 17 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This screen was purchased to connect to a laptop for photo editing and to games consoles, nothing else.

Happy to report it does both well and the picture quality is stunning at 1080p. The eRGB mode is great for photo editing, comparing it to prints shows a close if not bang on match.

There is a small amount of back light leak on the lower left of the screen but on investigation looks to fair far better most other IPS screens out there. Screen is not to bad on IPS glow either when viewed from angles.

Seems to be 30 pounds more expensive than when I bought it last week for some reason.

Screen lag is minimal on games such as GTA V and GT5.

Recommended purchase, perfect size for editing and gaming at a desk.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice system but...(Update resolved), 31 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
has a really annoying flaw. It will not correctly identify the source input of sounds for screen display. For example if you have a Sky HD box connected to the Optical (Dolby D set on Box) and you configure the N790 to only use optical in to match HDMI 1 pictures no matter what the source the display will say Dolby Digital 2Ch - this despite there being distinct 5ch sounds.

It clearly only reads what 'would' have come down the HDMI cable (2ch Dolby in the case of Sky - 5.2 is only over Optical - older boxes) DESPITE you telling it you are using the optical.

Basically you never have a clue what sound type you are getting via the optical input.

UPDATE NOTE: A future software update resolved the issue.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced here..., 29 April 2013
Nice case, looks great but does not magnetically close.
No need to spend near £50 either - other mobile fun sites have this for £30.
