Timothy, Leeds General home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This is a sleek and attractive tablet, perfectly proportioned for travel. The screen is sharp and bright. The fast processor / ram makes it very snappy and responsive in use. Web-surfing is a delight. Great iPad mini alternative at a great price point.
I bought the genuine nvidia cover which really compliments the tablet and protects the screen when carrying it around.
Bad points:
Battery life could be better, but its no worse than comparable tablets.
