Lenovo 7" IdeaTab S5000 tablet only £99.95 + £30 cashback @ John Lewis

Found 24th Jun 2014Made hot 24th Jun 2014
Just spotted that this has been dropped to £99 from £170. There's an option to claim £30 cashback via a Web link too, so you can get it for £70 at the moment.

Have been looking for a cheaper tablet for a while as saw this in another store a while back for slightly more. Is slim and silver and unlike lots of other cheaper tablets looks really classy and much more expensive than it is.

More detailed blurb on spec on the Web link

This tablet is running Android since the title & description both neglect to mention it...

My wife is using this tablet. It's fine for surfing, email and even copes with a lot of games, the screen is pretty clear (if a fairly low resolution) but the speakers are pretty bad, so don't expect to use it for music without headphones.

I'd personally get a sub £90 first generation Nexus 7 32GB over this, though.

very good tablet plus 2 years warranty from jlp , 70 pounds its bargain

for this price its a steal HOT

Same price at Argos.

Not bad, tempting. Heat.

do you get 2 year warranty with Argos though?

Not all MediaTek SoC's are crap.
Snag is, I can't tell you which ones are good, or even point you to a defence which can.
AFAIK, MediaTek are quite poor at their OSS obligations.

Cold. Ipad best.



Cold. Lame attempt at trolling.

I got the Lenovo Yoga 8 on the last deal. Absolutely brilliant. Seen lots of feedback that puts there over and above the ipad. Definitely hot!!!

Quite right!... 4.The Programme is only open to purchasers of Qualifying Products bought from Amazon and John Lewis only.

Can a memory stick fit into this or is there an adapter lead you can buy to allow a memory stick to fit in it?

Down from £170 oO No way was it competetive at that price. I still think the Asus Memopad HD is the best of the lot for around a ton. Bought my boys one each at Crimbo. They are excellent and the lads think they are faster and more responsive than out ipads!!

I picked one up today. Overall it is excellent, and for £70 you can't go wrong...

Unless you want multiple user accounts. For some reason Lenovo have crippled it by removing this feature. If it is for a household, with you all having your own things, forget it. If it is for a single person to use, it is a stunning deal.

Also, this massive limitation is not mentioned anywhere in the reviews available - a big oversight. The crapware you can't delete is mentioned, and is relevant, as there are a number of junk apps, just like my iPhone (Apple passbook? Why would I want that?)

Mine goes back to John Lewis on Monday. Other than the multi-user thing, it is excellent though - such a shame Lenovo doing extra work to remove a core feature, has ruined the experience :-(

absolutely nothing, i wouldnt want to put my name up their with a recommendation for a tablet that is poor.

Great deal!!!

The John Lewis 2 year warranty is also a big bonus imo.

Probably the best retailer customer service I've ever had.

Why do they come with usb rather than hdmi outlets?

I got mine from JL today and to my surprise it is a pretty good tablet. Looks way better than other tablets in this range like Hudl and performance is good too. The interface is somewhat like an iPad where all the apps are present on the homescreen. Quite reasonable for basic stuff and seriously you can't complain at this price.

The resolution on this tablet is better than ipad 2. The pixels per inch are 215 which is very good and again better than the ipad wihch is about 160 ppi. from my point of view the only problem with this tablets is that the brightness is not that great for someone with poor vision. for £70 do not hesitate in buying this tablet it is an absolute bargain. better than the asus memo pad hd.

Because HDMI doesn't support connection of mass storage and HID devices, or connection to a computer for admin/setup/diagnostic purposes?

Appears to be very similar spec. to my Galaxy Tab3 8" - except for screen size. Should be a very useable bit of kit and after all it is only a tablet device not a full blown portable computer.

Have two Samsung tablet devices in family and they - as this will probably - are used for fairly lightweight computing

Very good deal..................:)

Great deal!!!

Lol, people moaning at a £70 tablet. It will be more than capable for use by 95% of people.

I'd recommend the Nook HD for £79 but heat added.

I agree. Im looking for a 10 inch tablet as cheap as possible as I only want it to read PDFs... if anyone can point in the right direction. Thanks

What's an HID device? I like it when people are being clever :-)

lenovo was £179.95 so nook is not that good at all

For the money it's an excellent tablet. For the vast majority of people this will more than suffice their 'needs' on a tablet.
