Shouldn't this be listed as 199.99 before Cash back
#2
Well it's only 199.95 to start with but...

A lot of other deals with guaranteed cash back get posted like this, I think it's only things like topcashback and quidco etc that don't normally.
Or they may place both prices in the title.

software alone is worth more than this!

I prefer when both the Before & After are Posted, makes more sense that way .. kinda annoying/fustrating when put in some other ways ..... :-)

Depends on your 'Angle'? .. Android is free .. Open Office, & Kingsoft Office is free too .. & all my above are not just free, but are more then half decent & admirable Software Programs still ..... :-)

Very good deal. I was thinking about the similar Asus Vivotab Note 8 because of the Wacom pen, but for 150 quid this is really tempting too!

No HDMI output & only supports micro SDHC cards @ max 32gb - what a shame.

Check out the Toshiba Encore (which can be had for about £170 or less) - it has HDMI out & supports micro SDXC cards (currently 128gb for about £80, 256gb coming soon, but supports up to 2tb in the future),

PS: You got the spec wrong at the top - it's the 32gb model not 64gb.

why would a device that supports 64gb internally only support 32gb externally? surely sdxc support comes as standard these days?

Where is the source of your claim it only supports micro SDHC cards? This thread contradicts your claim

As does the storage section under this review

I just bought this from Amazon. Same price and cashback but includes a £25 Amazon gift card. Although the T's & C's say the gift card promotion ended on 23rd June, the order went through. Expecting delivery tomorrow (Thursday).

I am fairly certain that this is "real" Windows 8.1 - not the "reduced technology" version as I like to call it.
#13
It is full Windows 8.1 and Office Home and Student, I got one last time round

Lots of devices say they only support up to 32gb. They generally work with 64gb cards they just don't want to have to test them all and be responsible for the ones that aren't compatible.

So if you added a bluetooth keyboard and mouse this would be the same as a laptop?

Worth noting this comes with 2 years warranty.

Wrong. It supports HDMI output with MHL adaptors and can take SDXC cards.

Microsoft no longer charge OEM's a license free for devices under 9" and with the advances in W8.1 updates the min spec has been reduced too as the OS is far less hungry and incredibly efficient. This is why we are seeing OEM's producing these form factors at amazing prices. Fully blown W8.1 PC's in your pocket. Its defo time to do away with companion devices and travel light without loosing functionality.

I have a 64gb SD card in mine right now...

as for MHL - sdutton unless you know something I don't everywhere I have read, and cables I tried do not have HDMI out via the micro USB slot.

Only way of getting video out of this is to either use a Miracast dongle (with the built in Wireless Display support) or a USB video adapter.

Plugable have just launched a kick starter for a docking station which passes data and charges at the same time! that has dual video out on it!

Also, if a USB video adaptor or docking station can do it, then wouldn't that be MHL ?

Yep - and the very last post in that thread is "I bought one plugged it in and it did not display anything" - Also number of other posts state there is no support for it on this or the Venue 8 Pro... http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/lenovo-ibm/59355-comparison-lenovo-miix2-vs-dell-venue-8-pro-3.html

USB Video Adapter is different... It does not use MHL, but create a virtual Graphics Card over USB. Think of it like putting a 2nd graphics card into a tower PC. You can add on multiple USB video adapters to keep extending monitors (up to 5/6 usually).

I have seen nothing (except hearsay and conjecture) to indicate that the Miix 2 8 does not support MHL - there are various MHL adaptors available which all work differently so some will definitely not work but some may.

A USB Video Card is a very different thing from an adaptor - any USB Video Card would do this although these are rather expensive.

The best option would proabably be a Miracast dongle - very easy and relatively cheap.

Speaking of Miracast, is there any way to set up a Win7/Win8 PC to act as a Miracast receiver (preferably into XBMC)? I can't see any reason this wouldn't be possible...

Good luck to you on a hunt to find a working MHL adapter! Be sure to socialize it if you do find one! :)

Yes, USB display adapters are expensive, but has it's benefits - I'm certainly looking at one for ease of using my desk setup with different devices (i.e. Miix 2 Tablet or MacBook). End of the day it's still copper connected which is most helpful.

Miracast is the cheapest way to go. I've not invested in any as it's not what I am looking for - that said, it's also not without it's nuances:

As for XBMC - Devs been trying to crack that nut for 2 years since the original W8 WiDi support came out, but are getting closer:

No. It is still 199.95 @John Lewis. You are quoting Amazon price from 2-3 days ago which is again back to 199.95. :)

I have one of these, I use a 64gb micro sd without any problems so the post above is misinformed. I have a blutooth keyboard and mouse which turns it into a fully fledged Windows 8 pc, great for playinf some less demanding games on the go. There is a video of a guy on utube playing Batman Arkham Asylum on his, lots of power in a tiny tablet.

So true, it had to be said 3 times? ;)

You are correct though - it does support 64GB Micro SDXC cards (and 128GB-2TB Micro SDXC cards too).

You might want to cancel the order for that memory card - this tab takes MicroSDXC cards, not full-size SDXC cards ;)

Compared with direct HDMI, there will be a lag when using USB 2.0!
