OP .. you should have mentioned both 10.1" + Quad-Core in your Product Title Description too? .....

I'm also curious .. the Product Data Sheet Info. states both 8GB as well as 32GB? .. i'm assuming your partictular Deal + Price is for the 32GB Tablet Version right?, or .....

Or is some of what you're describing a simple Hit & Miss?.

Why cold this is not some cheap un branded generic tablet

wish I was off to USA this year just seen its 199 dollars at staples new.

I always wanted one of these but didn't want to pay £500 (with keyboard) for the privilege. lovely device.

A good price but there is some lag when using and no more updates.

no keyboard, old tegra 3 tech....not too sure about this one.....delivery 29-07-14 expected but not guaranteed?

Ibood are awful. Probably won't ship for ages, if at all, and you won't be able to contact them at all. They'll ignore contact via their web form, won't have a working phone line and are generally woeful. If you have to use them for heaven's sake use a credit card so you can initiate a charge back...

my experience was totally different- bought a Samsung smart tv- arrived earlier than indicated and product was as described.

This thing is not worth buying above £50

The memory configuration is like that for an android smartphone: 8Gb relates to system for system and apps, whereas the 32GB is the storage space, for media, apps, etc.

if you can get a keyboard docking station it would be cracking.

Don't worry about the 'official' Android 4.2, because here is the CyanogenMod install instructions for this device :

Is that based on personal experience? I know the technology is around 2 years old but unless you want to risk an 'unbranded' import, I have been hard pressed to find a decent 10 inch tablet for under £200.

Have to agree with this comment, not a great company to deal with. I did get my goods in the end, but way over the expected delivery date, and they are impossible to contact. Credit card is a must if you go for this.

Just Wondering

That review is two years old. That's like last century for technology.

this will be slow now, tegra 3 SoC is past its best, id much rather get a nexus 7 2013

I would risk an import as they are now much better than this, especially if you go for one with the rk3288 processor. It will be much faster than this.

Thanks for the tip. I have my eye on one that has a really good spec barring the Mali400, and I wasn't sure about the RK3188, even if it is a quad core 2ghz.

I was talking about the new one, the RK3288 with Mali T764 GPU. The new GPU is several times faster than the old Mali400.

Which device are you regarding pal ?
The Asus in the post really WAS cutting edge at the time and difficult to get one in the UK for long enough .I wanted one but it was just too costly . I'm sure it's still 'good enough' now for a lot of people but just not up to spec enough for me . Heat for the deal regardless .

Yeah as you say, it's not as though this was a middle of the range device when it came out, it was - for a short time - the best Android tablet you could get assuming you didn't mind the price tag. So old tech or not, it seems like it's going to handle your browsing / email / media consumption without a problem although I don't know if the stuttering problem was addressed by the custom roms.

As for the other device I was considering:

m.aliexpress.com/ite…tml

It's the older RK / Mali combo so it seems like it's more of a gamble than the Infinity.

1920x1200 otherwise its got some mighty big black borders!

The actual hardware is beautiful. . Probably not worth the money these days tho.

Sadly the Tegra3 is a very old chip set that struggles with the 1080 resolution.

Great deal. Heat added.

The Tegra 3 really isn't the issue. The CPU would be quick enough for what most people want, even if the GPU is a bit lacking at that resolution.

The main issue is the eMMC Asus used in all the tablets they produced around this time. It's ultra slow and is what causes all the 'lags' people mention. I have a Transformer Prime which uses the same storage chip and they are all the same. Reading and writing from the eMMC storage causes the device to freeze, hitch and and lock up while throwing AnR errors often. People are quick to blame an older system on a chip for this, but the issues are all 100% storage related.

As a user of basically the same tablet but using a 1280*800 display, I wouldn't recommended the above tablet even if it was £50. The user experience just simply isn't worth it.

I can't believe i paid £529 for my TF101 back in 2012...

Lol android 4.2 any below 4.3 is really slow, laggy and unstable. Best thing is root it and get the latest custom ROM

Have one of these and Laggy as hell, as above slow storage device. Bit better when rooted with custom firmware, even better still if you run it from sd card.

I paid over 500 quid for mine... and that was in America. The ipad 4 was cheaper at the time regreted buying it ever since. Even the galaxy tab 2 10 is so much faster.

I have a tegra 4 tablet and think it's a bit slow sometimes. I would hate to buy a tegra 3 tablet.

Whilst I concur that the eMMC is a major issue, I think our claims are still valid that Tegra3 is really underpowered even compared to last year's chipsets.
