2.0 out of 5 stars Good spec, failed to deliver..., 2 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Toshiba Excite Pro 10.1-inch Tablet (NVIDIA Tegra 4 1.6GHz, 2GB RAM, 16GB Memory, Android 4.2) (Personal Computers)
I bought this tablet over the Xmas period in the sale for 169 pounds. For that price it's a steal considering the spec of the tablet etc but as has been pointed out by lots of owners it does have serious heat issues, for example- it can play sd and hd movies fine, but enable video optimization and it stutters ( top left corner gets warm), play the occasional game like monopoly and its fine for about 8 mins, then it stutters (again, the top left corner gets warm to touch- not hot or uncomfortable)
I had already installed the latest updates from Toshiba that where supposed to solve this problem, but alas with no success.
Eventually installed a few benchmark programs...the scores are terrific, top of the league, but if i run them in succession so the tegra 4 is working hard for over 6 mins the benchmark scores get halved, everything is throttled back because of the heat issue i presume.
Dont get me wrong, if all you need in a tablet is watching movies etc on the go, emailing and office file creation ( powerpoint,docs, spreadsheets whatever) then its a great tablet, very responsive with a lovely screen, but if the kids are going to play the occasional game on it ( or anything else that is graphic intensive) then it might be best to look elsewhere as the stuttering of the tablet is annoying after a few minutes
