Have this updated to Windows 10, now the screen won’t auto rotate. Heat added.

Seems to be a lot of buyers in their feedback who have received faulty or broken ones. Are these Lynx tablets generally unreliable or are LaptopOutlet selling resealed customer returns?

this was same price in game and on game.co.uk if you do a store check

Excellent spot OP. Ordered

Details on how to get the office 365 key to sell it in eBay found here.

the 7" screen is just too small if upgrading to Win 10, and there are glitches that just make it un-useable at this screen size...not voting either way, hardware and 365 is good but upgrading causes big issues

there is a fix for that. head to unofficial linx tablet forum pages and download registry fix. it takes less then 5 minutes

i have to go bk to Android!!

Its the old baytrail chip still, cherry trail has been out for yonks.
The 8" version is much better.

I had this on a similar tablet, to fix it I had to manually reinstall the driver and give it a registry fix.

I can't see why many people have this problem. Mine works fine with win10 installed on linx7. the main problem is there is so much noise at the audio jack and the Bluetooth doesn't work well.

I've had this over a year now and I'm still amazedat what it could/can do for the price and considering the pathetic amount of RAM. It runs Kodi in it's sleep with full hardware decoding of 1080p footage all the way up to 50gb uncompressed rips.

I also use it for viewing RAW photos out in the field, I had a nexus tablet previously and it was an utter pain because you needed to install raw codecs and a raw image viewer etc. Because this is windows you just plug the card reader in and open RAW photos in the default windows image viewer. They can also be opened in Photoshop CC (only god knows how but it works well enough for minor edits) You can plug it into any tv or montor and have an instant mini PC which works adequately for browsing, office applications, image editing, youtube etc. It drives a 1080p display effortlessly.

It's not a powerhouse but I was amazed at what it could do and how versatile it was for £59 so it's an even bigger bargain at this price. Considering how limited some android tablets are at this price it's exceptional value. I also think it's a superior alternative to amazon fire tv, generic android and windows kodi boxes etc as it does everything they do but has a built in screen and battery too so you can take kodi to a friends house, make a functioning temporary pc out of a friends tv etc.

I've honestly never bought anything so cheap that's been so capable. It's certainly not a super computer but it's more capable than it has any right to be for the price.

Years ago I bought an android tablet for the same price that had 512mb of ram, 8gb of storage, 800x480 screen, single core 700mhz cpu etc and it was absolutely useless compared to this.

Voted HOT!

The only thing it has going against it is that it's been out 18 months and something even better still will no doubt soon be available in the price range.

I think it's a good tablet for this price and mine works fine. As usual, it's always the IT noobs who complained "the screen doesn't turn on" bla bla bla and actually can be fixed by changing a few system options.

I bought one of these last year (same dealer, same price), upgraded it to Windows 10 and the MS Office package plus a cheap SD card for storage and it is first class. This tablet is comparable to my iPad mini costing five times as much (better in some ways in that it has HDMI and USB sockets, doesn't need ridiculous propitiatory cables costing £15 to charge it, has easily up-gradable memory and a really good office package for free).
Heat added, this is a good deal.

PS. Fintie makes a really nice case that fits exactly for about a tenner.

I was thinking about getting this for Kodi onto my tv instead of an android box. Is it a good job, and is there much buffering? Thanks

can MS office licensed be used on a pc too or limited to tablet?

Already have one, not sure why i am buying another...

If I remember correctly yes you can ! Hopefully someone else will confirm this. I sold all mine on ebay for £29 so the tablet for the kids came for a tenner !!

I had the Argos 8" tablet with 32gb rom and 2gb RAM. I thought it would be nice to have a full version of Windows on a tablet but it reality it was horrible. It upgraded to Windows 10 ok and there were no real bugs (I think the 2gb ram helped) but it's just an awful experience. The Windows store is full of crap and you soon realise that you really need a keyboard and a mouse to make good use of it in desktop mode. In which case you may as well buy a small netbook / low power laptop. If you have a very specific use then Windows tablet may be the way to go but for most people I'd say stick to Android or iPad.

MicroSD slot so just copy anything onto a card and you are sorted. Or use Windows networking to drag and drop from another machine.

Its Windows so run VLC or any program you want.

I like these tablets so much I've bought a Linx 10 (for myself), Connect 7 (Linx 7 clone for sis) and Linx 8 for boyf.

Great little things if you know your way around Windows, not so suitable for those who prefer quick 'n' easy apps. A tempered glass protector is a must, as I had a pressure mark a few weeks in after buying my Linx 10 (swapped it out with Staples).

Had mine over a year, love it, use it every day. Obviously size may be a concern with the 7" but my sister uses a stylus with hers.

wow thanks for such a good open regview!

if anyone buys one and is not going to use the office 365 please drop me a message!

Yes, you can install on 1 pc/laptop and 1 tablet.

Because it nearly always comes up in Linx 7 threads, here is a link to how to get both power and data at the same time over the micro-USB port. You can charge, use a keyboard/mouse, USB memory or whatever else all at the same time.

Can this run the PC version of Minecraft?

Updated mine to Windows 10, and have had no problems whatsoever with resolution or not rotating.

Typing on this now. Good for the price, but for some reason I can't install apps!

Haman Basher I have one and haven't activated the Office.

Great but apparently the audio jack is really poor so if you are using 3.5mm headphones you might have issues - maybe look at Bluetooth options instead?

You were lucky, staples looked at the bad white bits on my 10 screen, reluctantly offered to send it to linx who then declined to fix it. Also after 1 year my 10 battery only lasts an hour. Anyone sourced a new 10 battery?

only issue we've got with ours is the camera on windows 10, seems to be a driver issue they are aware of but haven't fixed it

Has anybody successfully used one of these with car diagnostic software? ie ds150e
Edit: looks like some folks are selling this combo on ebay, so bought, thanks!!
