Treat above as spam. Most XDA ROMs need the non working features listed. That can even include blueooth etc !

Treat above as NOT spam... Most XDA ROMs have nothing to do with what you are talking about.. which includes bluetooth working 100%!

With the particular, tested in full KITKAT 4.4 rom, I mentioned, everything is working in full on all of these devices...

Shame I already have four tablets and can't justify another as this looks to be a very good deal. Heat!

Wow, this is going to get some heat!

Amazing price for this tablet, have some well deserved heat

Can you set these up so two people can use it separately, like Windows where you have your own log in? Thanks

Goog price. Slightly lower resolution than the iPad Retina but this ones a full featured device with a top quality screen instead. Not sure if it matches the very top end screen quality of that new Fire.

Wicked deal. Paid £199 for mine a couple of weeks ago, and that was good! lol.

Great tablet, makes my Xoom seem like it was from the dark ages.

good price

this or toshiba excite pro

Four did you say? O_o What do you do with the 3 spare ones?

Nexus 8 in April

Full HD - nice. But I am still trying to figure out whether that would fit in my pocket...

hot from me, I returned mine though as I couldn't stand the yellow tint/hue that the screen has and the speakers weren't very good either for watching films.

This will need to come down to at least to £150 to tempt me as the Samsung 16gb 8" Tab was selling with a £70 discount earlier this week

How does it compare to nook HD+ and Samsung tab 3?

This is twice the tablet, if not more, than the Galaxy Tab 8.

Man this is tempting even though I have a N7 2012 that has been made pretty much redundant by my T100 but can't beat a good deal on a sweet tablet!

Anyone comment on how good miracast is using this?

It's a better spec'd tablet all round.

im assumign this is chock full of lg crapware and will need a decent rom installed on it?

a lovely tablet, that extra 1.3" from the 7's make a HUGE difference and the specs and build quality are cracking... HEATY!

I have posted this deal after OP how do I delete my deal

OK now sorted

bleh, you never know with the nexus line. If it was a cert I would wait for it, as it's gonna be HTC made probably.

.....are the best value to performance tablets at the price, however you can no longer get an Excite Pro for £169, glad I got mine when I did. If you are after an 8" tablet currently though I doubt you would get better than this.

Heat added.

+HOT to +MELTING!

One of the best bits of hardware on the marketplace today!

Get shot of all the bloatware on it, with a proper Google experience rom and watch this baby fly...

So true. I sold my N10 hoping for the new, rumoured version in Nov. It never happened. I ended up buying an ipad mini, but I really do miss android.

I have a note8.0 but im still buying this:p

Yet the standard supposedly bloated ROM actually works !

One you go root, life is just a hoot

Anyone know of any good cases for this, perhaps with a keyboard? A device this size with a resolution seems ok to turn into a makeshift netbook on the fly for word processing etc.

I guess he is just a real geek

1920x1200 makes it better for browsing and all activities other than video. Keep the 16:10 format alive!

Got to smile. I suspect there are many of us in a similar position. Next step is to realise that the main use of your tablets is to scour the net for..... you guessed it, other tablets. Some people appear to be constantly buying and returning gadgets because they can. I've stopped short of doing that but i admit that it would save me a lot of money if i did. I suggest that like me, you sell your old tablets while they still have some value. BTW the LG is a nice tablet but not for me. I've now settled on a Nook HD+ with custom kitkat.

That one looks nice: hotukdeals.com/mis…735

Although it would be nice to hav the typical case-keyboard that some iPads have. I'm talking about the ones with magnets not the classic fake leather chinese case-keyboards.

thanks!....just ordered one from Amazon on prime, shiftily cancelled that and purchased from ASDA to collect on my way home.

Appreciated

Ordered and heat added thanks for the post
