I've got the v4 of this. Took just over 2 weeks to arrive from Gearbest (UK priority mail / insured). Been evaluating it for the last week or so.

Things I don't like:

- Wifi performance is very poor. Not sure if its a fault but my speeds are about 30% of my other two laptops. Signal drops out completely if I move to the other side of the house. Random disconnects, drops in speed etc. I notice one of the reviewers online had this problem as well. Intel AC 3165 wireless chip used here. Not sure what the fix is for this.

- Trackpad pointer movement is okay but the sensitivity for two finger scroll and lower trackpad buttons is very poor. No way of adjusting the trackpad scrolling speed either or setting up scrolling zones on the left/right edge of the trackpad. Trackpad surface is a rough texture which I dislike. You wouldn't really want to use the trackpad for long periods anyway as your hand rests on the bottom edge of the laptop which is bevelled and therefore uncomfortable. I decided to use a mouse instead.

- Speakers are rubbish and very tinny. Sound through earphones is fine though.

- Keyboard is 'okay' but no more than that. I can anticipate some of the keys failing at some point in the future, particularly the spacebar as you have to press much more towards the centre of the key.

- N3450 is okay for basic tasks but it maxes at 100% constantly when loading media heavy web pages. Windows feels surprisingly sluggish compared to my i5 laptop. Really would benefit from a faster CPU and subsystem.

- Screen would benefit from a higher contrast ratio. It's sharp but there's loss of detail in black scenes of films as the contrast ratio isn't quite high enough. Fine for office work though and internet etc, just not ideal for films where there's alot of black or dark areas.

- in built microphone isn't very sensitive. You have to point your head 2ft from the microphone for Cortana, Skype etc!! You need to plug in earphones with mic for that...

- MeiMengMeng.Win.Clients.exe is loaded on startup which is not native to Windows. Looks like someone has fiddled with the original installation. I ended up disabling it.

Things that are good:

- Very low price for what you're getting. You'll never get a Windows laptop anywhere close to this for £170 in the UK.

- Aluminium build makes the chassis very rigid. Feels pretty durable.

- Laptop is thin and not too heavy.

- IPS 1080p screen is a bonus at this price (though the note the comments about contrast ratio).

- m.2 storage expansion slot is useful as 256GB SSDs can be had for £60 or so.

Overall:

Good for students and light users.

Bear in mind that you are buying an entry level laptop, so don't expect it to have the usability of a Macbook or XPS13.

Not really suitable for someone looking for a heavy duty, comprehensive, daily 'workhorse' of a laptop as those usability niggles will become a real pain over time.

Amazing deal, will not be buying in this case, been stung too many times by expensive electronics from China.
Looks good

Scorching hot
I'm sure linustechtips recently viewed the 10.6" version of this and didnt have much nice to say about it....

I assume this is only good for very basic stuff?

There is an excellent overview on TechTablets which I think evidences some gaming capabilities at lower end.This is v4 of the model and there have benn improvements. The forum also references tweaks that can be made to improve performance further.

Just wondered if you have tried any of the tweaks referenced in TechTablets Forum or indeed to what extent any are required for this v4 model.
This with a SSD would be pretty amazing for the price
The tdp is already unlocked on this v4 model. It also has a cover on the back so it's easier to add a ssd. For the price it really is a decent bit of kit. Sure you can't really game on it, but for watching vids, doing office work etc it's brill. The screen is very nice, better than even my hp envy ultrabook.

Although I did install csgo on it, ran at about 45 fps going above and below. I think the emmc storage struggles quite a bit with it so I'll be looking at adding a ssd in the future. I also installed songbringer (new game on steam with zelda like pixel gfx) and it runs really nice, no slow down etc. Just don't be expecting to play gta and battlefield and you'll be happy
Any programmers out there know what this does? Is it spyware? Anyone able to disassemble it? I've uploaded the .exe here: ufile.io/wqo0g

It's clearly not part of Windows, so Jumper or some 3rd party must have injected that into the Windows install.

This is the updated model. It has a slightly smaller screen but the extra features such as IPS display, improved CPU N3450, extra 2GB (6GB) memory. Upgradable M2 SSD slot, tweaked BIOS etc is more than worth the extra IMO.

Only thing making me hesitant from pulling the trigger is ordering from abroad. The highest amount I've ordered for is £30.

It's not junk - it's better than any £200-£250 Windows laptop you'll get from PC World. Like I said, for students or light users, it will be fine.

Buyers just need to think about their usage profile and make sure that its suitable for their type of usage.

Can Windows 7 be installed on this? Hate Windows 10
Using one as I type this post and I don't think I'ver used a more crappy trackpad. Press left click and the cursor moves as you're doing it, sometimes very wildly. The keyboard isn't much better to be honest, you have to really hammer down on the keys to get the strokes to register. I had to type the first r of register twice for example. Also oddly if you edit a senence and press backspace more than one in a row the cursor goes straight to the end of the sentence. Very annoying indeed. The touchpad also has a strange and completely unnecessary matt finish to it.

The machine looks good but at the end of the day it's a crappy unknown Chinese brand with all the issues that comes with that. Sorry but this thing may have nice specs but it's awful to use.

Some of the problems with the keyboard show up in that chunk of text I posted a few posts back.

I have given up on using the touch pad buttons, just using the double tap on the touch pad to simulate left click and trying to hammer harder on the keys.

I have only had the product for a few hours. It was delivered today.

The guy on there does alot of good stuff but based on my experiences of this machine, i get the impression that he isn't as critical as he could be as he gets income from the affiliate links he uses......

The Chinese American guy on YouTube - "Zi Reviews Tech" seems to be a bit more thorough.

If purchasing one from Gearbest, it would help the Techtablets site and youtube channel to use the link on their page as that helps the guy who does them.

Are you sure you've got the v4 and not the v3 (which had a poor touchpad)? v4 uses Windows precision drivers rather than Elan or Synaptics. Cursor and pointer movement is fine on mine. It's the drag/swipe sensitivity (or lack of it) on the trackpad that annoys me.

Keys need slightly more effort than other keyboards I've used and you definitely need more definitive keystrokes, but it's sort of 'okay-ish' though definitely not great. The spacebar on mine is a bit hit and miss if you press right on the edge of the spacebar (rather than towards the middle). I wouldn't want to be writing novels on this keyboard though - it's clear that its a rubber dome membrane keyboard rather than one with a quality scissor switch key mechanism - increasingly rare these days, certainly on sub £500 laptops. I do wish that they had sourced a better keyboard though - I would have happily paid another £20-£30 for a better one. The Microsoft Surface Book keyboard is the gold standard for me - but that costs £1,000+. Apparently the Chuwi Lapbook 12.1 has a better keyboard than the EZbook, so it is possible to have a decent keyboard at around the £230 pricepoint. I guess Jumper had to cut costs somewhere to hit that £170 price point for this...

I don't want to sound paranoid, but what the hell is this MeiMengMeng service they've injected into the Windows installation? Even disabling the .exe and there's a service that runs in the background. Is it spyware?
