I have one of these from the Currys deal. It's a bit plasticky, Wi-Fi is also patchy and prone to just not working after a while. Hard to recommend as a tablet device, especially once factoring in Windows isn't a great tablet OS.

I was about ready to put it down as another one of my cheap gadget purchases that would forever live in the draw of unused trinkets until the latest Windows update. Windows now has a Project to this PC feature which turns the device into a miracast receiver. Very handy to throw in my rucksack so when I'm out and about and a bit short of screen real estate I can prop this alongside my laptop as a wireless second screen.

As a tablet device save your money, Windows doesn't work great as a tablet OS, full desktop apps don't work well on a tiny screen. But £50 is pretty cheap for a wireless display. Windows even keeps full touch functionality to the transmitting device.

would you recommend it? I've been ready tempted since missing out last time and regret ted seeing all the heat!


It depends what you want it for. I'm a full on geek so having a tiny laptop makes sense for me. I had a nook hd+ before, the screen was better on that. But it was long in the tooth and slow.

I think android is a cleaner, better os on a tablet personally, but this is fast enough for anything you would do on a basic laptop. Browsing and office work fine. The 2gb of ram is much better than the 1gb I had in the tesco connect so it is faster. Fast enough for me anyway.

The real bonus for me is that you can connect to just about any display or tv, and I use it on holiday to get photos off of my camera. (Xd card bleurgh). I also use it for emulators with an xbox 360 controller. The screen is fine just the nook was exceptional.

So it depends this is more flexible, but you have to put up with a more clunky os. Windows works OK on a tablet, but there are times when you become aware you are missing a mouse and keyboard. (you could have one of course, but that feels like it would be missing the point)

Someone on the last thread recommended a keyboard from gearbest I think for a 10 inch tablet. It works but is a bit of a kludge. I'm happy with that and it can be handy. To be fair I use it as a tablet most of the time so it can't be that bad in tablet mode!

All just my opinion obviously YMMV

I have one of these from a previous deal, I have been very pleased with it. Replaced a tesco connect 7 and it is much better in my opinion.

Been using this tablet for a while now, very impressed given the price (got it for the same price in a previous deal). The only nag I have is how difficult it is to find a 8.9 inch keyboard case that makes use of the magnetic pogo pins. All either for larger tablets or almost as expensive as the tablet itself.. so gotta stick with the cheap generic tablet cases on eBay, well, not the worse thing one would have to endure in life I guess...

Can only really find poor reviews for this tablet...
Under £55 delivered seems good, but it is a false economy?

Dreadful reviews on Amazon and I was going to buy one. Should have known better as the few Archos products have owned have been awful.

Mine came with 10 installed (not from this deal), but I reckon they all have 10.

It really doesn't (source my pipe cleaner arms).

The tablet weighs 459g I guess this is the weight including the keyboard which probably isn't included.

Hmm or 508g notebook check lists both weights. Maybe I need to get the scales out. 508 sounds more like it.

Even if it is Windows 8.1, you can still upgrade to Windows 10 for free. (Just do the 'assistive technologies' upgrade trick)

Windows now has a Project to this PC feature.

This only works if you have windows 10 on the tablet and a window phone right?

I do it from a Windows laptop using this device as an extended display.

I've also done it from an Android tablet as well just to test, though that only mirrored the display from the Android tablet to this tablet. Doing it from a Windows laptop or tablet you can use it as an extended display which is far more useful.

I got one of these in the Currys offer for the same price a few months ago and it's brilliant.

Very hard to find a case that fits snugly because of the 9 inch size, though.

Does this have a Camera?
Just had a look. It does.

It means for disabled people.

Can anyone recommend a good case for this tablet? Has anyone managed to find a keyboard that fits the pogo pin connector? I picked this up when it was on here a couple of months ago. Personally I like it, just wish I had a keyboard for it. I know you can use Bluetooth keyboards but I've read that it messes with 2.4ghz WiFi - not 100% sure if that's true though.

I also have one from the previous Currys deal, pleased so far.

Well worth the money. Only downside was sourcing the pogo pin keyboard.

If it's anything like Archos tablets I've tried in the past you'll be lucky if this lasts long enough to even boot Windows.

The problem is not what this tablet can or cannot do. The problem is how easily people would compare this to a surface pro 4 not accepting the fact that you get what you pay for. So yes, I am sure this will work fine as a media consumption device or a wireless display as someone here has suggested.
Just don't expect to write your final year thesis or run the latest video games on this one...

Does anyone know if this would be any better, performance wise than a HP Stream With an Intel N3050?
