5.0 out of 5 stars Great little budget card., 20 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely little budget card, plays most games on medium to high settings, matches Radeon's 7750 card. Nothing more to add, at this price point it does everything wonderfully.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wife loves them, 20 Mar. 2014

Fits perfectly for my wife, as she needed some comfortable leggings to fit over the bump. Very pleased - she says it's comfortable, warm and seem sturdy enough even after a few washes. Money well spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure excellence!, 27 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When it was taken off for review, i was worried that the one i ordered would arrive faulty. Amazon CS representative said he can inform the driver not to continue the delivery and return it to base for a instant refund. But i was brave and told him not to, and glad i did!
Arrived in perfect condition with all features working smoothly.
It is fast, responsive, light and paper thin.
Pre-installed apps are very useful and my favorite thing - nice folder widgets, preloaded and set on your desktop. No more cluttered screen, everything is neat and organized. Sure you can get apps to do that and download widgets separately, but it is time consuming and not always works the way you want. Top notch customization job there.

Performance is excellent for the price. It actually looks worse on paper than it actually is. After doing extensive benchmarks, it actually nearly matches Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 and surpassing it in some aspects. Not "AS" good, but nearly there, and considering the price - it's impressive.
I have made comparisons with other tablets i've owned, my previous 10.1 tab which was far superior in specs (1.5Ghz Quad Core, 2GB DDRIII 1333 RAM, Mali 420Mhz QuadCore GPU) performed WORSE than this one. After doing some research and testing, and getting opinions from other tech-geeks i found out why. Because power is very efficiently balanced between the hardware. It is a thing where many tablets go wrong (budget tablets that is). And it is true, a proper and efficient power supply can boost your PC's performance, same applies here. Many don't realize that. It is not all about the hardware, if there's not a appropriate power distribution behind it, it literally performs poorly.

The sound is good. It is not excellent - sounds a bit "tinny" on max volume, not exactly Kindle Fire HD's dolby digital surround sound, but it is... good. Enough for watching youtube and a film here or there. No problems with headphones.

The 5MP camera does not excel in greatness. Takes a good photo if natural lighting (sun) is present, but not so well indoors with artificial light. My 5MP Nokia 520 takes a far superior picture, but then again, a tablet is not a digital camera or phone... It's main focus lies elsewhere.
Front cam is well... it is what it is. It is meant for webcam conversations and nothing more nothing less. Don't expect taking HD pictures of yourself for Facebook. Not meant for that.
If camera plays a big role in your everyday life, this is not for you, a 20 quid cheapo from Tesco does it better.

Battery - praised and worshiped. Never seen a battery on a budget 10.1 incher this good as of yet. It surpasses the big dog counterparts like Ipad, Samsung etc by a large margin. Due to the efficient pwr distribution which i stated earlier, it does very well at maintaining a charge even on full load. 300h+ in standby.
Nice little built-in feature is overnight auto-shutdown, and wake-up in the morning. Set its sleep and wake-up time - it will increase the battery duration even longer. Only charged it once in 3 days, and even then for about an hour and a half.
I'm not saying there aren't longer lasting devices out there, of course there are, but not for under 200 pounds. The new Lenovo Yoga can reach up to 20hrs on full load. But it also costs almost 3 times more.

Some cons are... Sometimes it's difficult to update the firmware. Lenovo download servers often are down or overloaded, which prevents the updates. But do not panic, it will work, just try in a few hours or a day, and off-peak time.
Switching from landscape-portrait is slightly twitchy, but it is understandable, since it doesn't have the greatest graphics unit in the world, but it is far from underperforming or annoying.

I've not encountered any problems other than these, but they are not such a big deal to reduce my rating. Even big brand products have their faults, and many of them.
So far, price/performance wise, this is more superior than any I-Pad or Galaxy. It is worth every single penny.

Of course, nobody is ever safe from a dud or faulty product, they exist, but reviews are not based upon the minority. So far it has met all my expectations and much more.

Kudos to Lenovo, great product overall.
Hope this helps your decision.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zoostorm 10.1 q6010 fits perfectly., 12 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My zoostorm q6010 10.1' fits nicely in this case. Nice and snug fit, feels secure and tight. Stand mode works well, even when held on my lap, no need to hold it in hands. The stylus/pen is a lovely addition too. Works for all my devices and looks quite stylish.
For the price, you can't go wrong.

Arrived today, very very impressed. It is responsive, fast, battery lasts a good while and screen quality is amazing. Sound is a bit on the low side, but it doesn't bother me that much. Excellent value for money!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great price and performance., 3 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this tablet for my wife after her Kindle Fire broke and we both are impressed. Fast response times and decent enough screen. Combine it with 16gb memory and it's a winner. It's not of course as powerful or responsive as the Kindle was, but also costs twice less, so nothing to complain about really. Great little tablet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 17 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite impressed. It delivers the same experience as high-end PSU's but for a reasonable price. More than enough system and peripherals cables come included and they are all neatly packed.
It's hefty and silent and actually has rpm control (which many don't have).
Runs my rig just fine. My specs are:
Intel i5 4670k OC @ 4.2Ghz, GeForce GTX 760, 16GB DDR3, 3HDD's 1SSD and DVD-RW and it runs all this without breaking a sweat.

Good PSU - recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good budget board, 17 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good value for money, can't really fault it for £38.
A handy board for a budget intel rig and for first time builders. It has all the slots necessary to build a decent enough gaming or multimedia PC. Plenty of USB slots and SATA ports. Sure it only has a barely viable chipset and a very few hardware slots, but at this price - it offers more than enough.
