Not for everyone, but if you want a cheap windows 10 laptop you could do worse. I bought this last Christmas for my wife - It was £129.99 at the time on a special deal - so while only a tenner cheaper this time it's better than anywhere else at the moment. It's a brilliant bit of kit - runs Kodi, ideal for browsing or working with Office. Hope this helps someone!

Good price but I got to say it's crap

Wifi is terrible.

I've had the total opposite, from my Linx 10 Lite Tablet, 16GB version ..... :-)

Wifi on these is terrible. Totally hit and miss, I had to create a guest wifi to connect to when it wouldn't connect to my main wifi and swap between the 2 depending on how it was playing up.

regarding WiFi issues, anyone care to share what router they have or what type of WiFi? I previously had BT with their HomeHub 5 dual band WiFi ... horrid router... caused numerous problems for me with various devices.

​not interested in buying this tablet, just trying to help those who have one or those who may be considering a purchase. not all WiFi is equal! lol

Same here. Tablet has been awesome all around. Wifi is reliable, battery lasts me three days with video use for around 4 hours a night. If you have WiFi issues, go to linxtablet.co.uk. Heat added.

​maybe you were unlucky or maybe it depends on expectations. For me the battery seems to last forever, the screen is very sharp - or as sharp as I need it and I've not had a single WiFi connection problem that wasn't the fault of my crap broadband

Had mine for around 6 months now & the battery ain't that bad. Never ever had any issues with the wireless dropping out, screen looks fine to me for what i use it for.
To add, mine hasn't got the keyboard. Does the keyboard drain the battery?

Cheers OP, ordered for collection for Xmas present, Heat!

Got this last week from Staples for £99.99 as part of their Black Friday promotion

Only had limited time on it, but for me wi-fi has been fine (Sky broadband). Out of box Windows OS needed quite a few updates but now these are in place it seems a good tablet for (well for me) sub-£100.

Haven't opened / connected the keyboard as not sure if I need to use this seperately so may yet sell on e-Bay.

got to say I am impressed with mine, I got for £99 from Staples last week. Ended up getting 4 as my friends were that impressed by them. Wifi on mine is good connecting to a virgin media superhub 3 but it is only on the 2.4ghz frequency so if you have a lot of networks around where you live from other peoples routers then you can get interference. Only thing you can do is to change the channel on your router try 1 6 or 11 ideally. There is an app on the windows store called wifi analyser which can display what network are around your area, just pick a channel that has the least overlap.
The screen is pretty good and speed was fine for using youtube and browsing the net at the same time using the perfect tube app and edge browser.

With any luck, come Christmas time going, they'll repeat upon such cool price's again?, hopefully .....

The Linx 10 Lite, 16GB has served me well!, but is mad limiting on space (ESPECIALLY as Windows 10 deliberately insists on mandatory 'updates', irrespective of whether you expressly agree to them or NOT?!, most annoying!!!, and as such killed much of any real useful internal space again, I've heard there is a way to turn-off that annoying Windows 10 feature somewhere?, but don't know how to do it?, if anyone is more familiar on that end of things, your input would be most appreciated, thanx). :-)

I managed to nab one of these the other day and i can confirm its the 2016 model and it was like brand new bargain at £59

Same issue with WiFi here, even after various driver updates. Tablet was pretty fast and would have suited my needs but had to return due to WiFi dropping all the time.

I've had mine for about a year. Really impressed with it for the cost. Good build quality. Good screen. I had wifi dropping but a new update on windows 10 has sorted that out for me. Only negative about the tab is the speaker is a bit quiet

Oh and the battery is good. That's also improved with windows updates. Mine lasts a few days on standby and light use

Not a bad tablet for the money, but it is heavy and a bit flaky. Wifi dropping, occasional issues like non-responsive screen or switching on. The 32GB storage is pushed to its limit by Windows10, although I have an SD card to store files some windows updates have given me error messages due to lack of storage space. I use mine for mainly watching films / iPlayer downloads whilst travelling and browsing the net on the sofa. I don't expect it to last past another 24 months to be honest.

Saying that, it did get me out of a scrape a few months back when my main laptop picked up a virus and I needed a clean machine to change all my passwords to various accounts / sites. The fact that it had a keyboard made it a lot easier for this.

There were two a few minutes ago, then during the few seconds I spent reading the specs, there were both sold!

the £99 Staples deal was a steal - great price

Horrid little machines, at any price.

Awesome tablet, bought one last Christmas and use it daily. Worth getting a memory card, and can also recommend the Brotect glass screen protectors if you're in any way worried about the plastic screen (though the keyboard offers a lot of protection too)

care to elaborate?

Can't understand the hate.

For the price it is a very capable little tablet. I use it to browse the internet, use Netflix, VLC, stream and even play a few old games on GOG no problem. Battery is fine too.

Yes it is poor compared to a decent i3 laptop...but it isn't an i3. It's a Widnows tablet and it has a different use case.

i would buy a used thinkpad for the same price. faster, better.

new laptops are a bad deal nowadays.

I have the earlier Linx10 with keyboard. The Tablet itself is great with Win10, the keyboard and trackpad are not so great but adequate.

I've been wanting to get a 10b.
I suspect different people have different exceptions and when they say that the tablet is "horrid" what they actually mean is that they personally don't like it.

Not particularly - I'm not saying anything that hasn't already been said but trust me, there's a reason they are at this price point.

I bought the leather model for £79.99 from Sainsburys earlier in the year and a 3rd party case/Bluetooth keyboard last month. It won't replace a proper desktop or laptop, but this is great for anyone who wants a tablet. I've installed Office 2013 on mine and it runs great.

good price if just using for basic functions

Lol a hot deal @ £120. This site cracks me up. Got one for £99 in 2014 when staples had their offer on, swiftly went back and swapped for the 8" version. Suppose I was comparing it to my asus t100ta (which was also a bit crap) and my old surface pro which was lovely, other than battery life.

I bought the same 2 in one netbook/tablet from staples last friday and paid £99.

got the v1 version & it does everything its supposed to do. great for those older pc games stored on my steam account.

I used mine as a pinball Fx2 tablet, great fun.

This seemed decent at first but mine is less than a year old and it is now so slow that it's virtually unusable even for simple tasks

Perfect tablet for those that need to do basic laptopy type things like a CV or long emails etc. It wont win any prizes for speed or screen quality but the price more than makes up for it as you can use your left over cash for a tablet you will probably use more for day to day use (thats what I've done).

The battery is horrific with the keyboard attached,for some reason it drains it badly. The only reasonable fix is to change what the main power button does,change this to go into hibernation upon pressing. Obviously this means the next time you use it will take 10secs to boot back to where it was which is much better than having a dead tablet.

Well worth the money for me,i ditched me laptop last year for this and its worked a treat. No WiFi issues for me.

​Why am I not surprised...

I bought for £ 99.99 years ago. This is very old stock now. I like the new 12 inch 12v64 with 4gb ram model selling for £200 at Sainsburys but this one is very old.

​According to Amazon this was released in Sept 2015 so just over a year old. Granted the specs aren't bleeding edge but then again for the money...

I bought a Linx1010B coming to about 1 year now.

I would suggest that people buy the TPLink nano wifi adapter (under £8) and that would resolve any wifi issues.... it did for me ....

I am now thinking of giving this to my daughter so I can buy something else with a higher screen resolution.

Anyone with experience of the Dell Venue 11 pro or the Chuwi Hi12 as a replacement for the Linx?
