Toshiba Excite Pro 10.1-inch Tablet - A Star Buy,
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)
First of all I got it for 169 pounds delivered by Amazon. When I ordered it was estimated to be delivered on/after 8th Jan 2014. So thanks Amazon for excellent service.
I already have Samsung tab2 7. I was looking to upgrade to Tab 3. But looking at the specs I decided to try Toshiba.
There is a wow factor when you look at the tablet. It has every connection you can dream of. The resolution is amazing. I read some magazines and player HD videos and it all looked very impressive. I dont know why people faced problem with streaming. I did not have any problem at all. It managed to play full HD videos extremely well. Battery life seems to be at par with Samsung tab 2. 2 hours of continuous use and it is still showing 65% left. I downloaded and installed many big applications during two hours of play. So, on a normal use it is going to give me more time out of it. Sound is really good. It is well balanced between high notes and bass frequencies. I liked the wide stereo effect it has. It sounds way better than Samsung tab2 7. Camera is not the best you can have, but it is not disappointing. It has got a extremely fast photo editor I have ever seen on a tablet. It works flawlessly.
Screen is also very bright, in fact I have reduced brightness of the screen.
It is made of plastic and not metal. Initially I thought it was a bit of let down, but when I used it, I found it makes it much lighter and easy to hold for longer period. It is well balanced for size/weight. It feels well built and looks impressive.
And, I did not face any overheating problem. It does get slightly warm which is very common when playing games, or watching videos.
All in all, a great tablet for reasonably good price.
Go for it, I suggest.
