Found a bit of a bargain on eBay for the above tablet...
(Please be aware this is a Grade A Refurbished item on sale.)

While this is not the worlds greatest or most recognisable brands they are offering a very well specced tablet for under £80 with a decent large screen. Medion is a brand that makes many electrical tech items for Aldi.

The tablet runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and has full access to Google Play Store, which some budget tablets do not have access to.

The 1GB RAM should help the tablet perform very well, along side the dual core processor and be capable of running nearly all apps.

Its OK but dual core meh not voting either way

Interesting. On the look out for a 10 inch tablet (with hdmi out), not sure between this, the hannspad from asda or the polatab elite. All around the £80 mark. Anyone any advice?

Description says quad core?

have bought cheap pads, and been disappointed every time. The response is slow and they slow down so much making them frustratingly unusable. In the end invested in an ipad air. You get what you pay for.

For the price you can't go wrong.

It might struggle with just 1gb of ram.

dual or quad core?

10" IPS screen, branded. Good Price. It dual core, per the (slightly mixed) reviews below (To be fair, the review price was £167, not £70):

techadvisor.co.uk/fea…ew/
youtube.com/wat…Dxo
expertreviews.co.uk/lap…310

Screen is IPS per TechAdvisor review:
Medion, however, is quick to point out that the LifeTab is better specified than any other 10-inch tablet at this price. There’s a dual-core 1.6GHz processor, 16GB of storage (expandable by microSD card), front and rear cameras, USB input and HDMI output plus an IPS screen for great viewing angles. Specifications rarely tell you if a tablet is any good though... - See more at: techadvisor.co.uk/fea…ew/

YouTube review (PCAdvisor) shows the tablet in action. In summary - Decent enough for most uses, but poor rear camera and not a good 3D gaming Unit.



This is better built than my galaxy tab 3, voted hot.

Tempting for the price but reviews put me off a bit expertreviews.co.uk/lap…310 . It's cheap though for a 10" screen and HDMI - how well does it handle video files played from USB?

You get what you pay for, but with Apple you pay for the name, the specs are usually pretty terrible and it only feels good because the OS is limited and optimized for the hardware. If you actually want freedom and a good quality/price then go for a android tab but with a good name.

Just so you're aware, the iPad air has a 1.3ghz dual core processor and 1GB of ram.
So, assuming you paid £399 for the wifi only 16GB model you sure are getting what you paid for - a low end tab with an apple logo on it.

I swapped my 10" Xoom (same resolution as this tablet) for a 9" Nook HD+, 1920 x 1200 resolution. Regardless of the other specs the screen is just so fantastic its worth it, its £129 rather than 80 but still worth it in my opinion

it's actually 1920x1280!
I hope you've installed cyanogenmod on yours, really makes the device even better.

also the screen is absolutely lovely, with PPI only slightly lower than "retina" iPad displays.

Also great that it has expandable storage.

Never heard of the manufacturer. It's probably an alright tablet for a few months, until it starts malfunctioning.

Not a big presence in the UK but Aldi used to sell their stuff. Generally an okay brand, so this should be a lot better than the cheap no-name tablets.

Also purchased 3 galaxy tab 7 inch for the kids, worked well for 3 months and now redundant. Press a button and wait 5 seconds for it to respond. Also had a flytouch superbad, never again!! Just a waste of money. At present have apple ipad air 128gb, and so far so good, having said that i do prefer android platform, find it more vibrant and user friendly.

I have done the same I went for a Nexus 7 1st gen in the end and the difference is amazing compared to the cheap get no update tablets they really are not worth buying. I also have a couple of ipads and they will get updates for quite a long time so that is why you pay more so it is not redundant and out of date to begin with or in 6 months.

I have a medion laptop from Aldi and its the best laptop i've ever had. It' came with 3 year warranty andy its nearly 4 years old and still going strong. So please dont be put off by the name.

Ha! A low end tablet that consistently beats all it's rivals and gets the number 1 spot in pretty much all the tablet reviews, get a grip man!!

You can keep your cheap junk, iPad Air is worth every single penny.

It's only beating the rivals because they are open, the iPad air is fundamentally restrictive (as with ALL apple products) they don't like you venturing too far from the norm. It is optimized for the hardware that it's on, which is in all respects cheap and no different than any other. The only reason it doesn't slow down or suffer is because you can't really do ANYTHING you want with it, you're given a bit of leash but not too much that wouldn't be good for Apple now would it?

iPad air is worth a few pennies, but you're paying for the name and to be told by a company what you can and can't do with your property. You keep telling yourself you're free. Everyone loves Apple but for no real reason, it's a trick of the mind to think that expensive=better.

Sending me a link to Medion products tells me nothing about the brand or their reliability. Reviews are hardly glowing. I would suggest putting your money towards a reliable branded tablet such as Samsung, Google or Apple.

Missed that, and yes got cyanogenmod. It's used 90% of the time as a comic reader so the better screen makes them look as good as real life

Medion products used to be sold by Woolworths and Asda, now it tends to be mainly Aldi. The handy thing about that being that you get a 3 year warranty when you buy from Aldi.

I had a Medion pc, the graphics card went two years into the warranty and a nice man came and replaced it for free.
The PCs used to be famous for being brilliant value for money, i.e. people queuing at 7am outside Aldi to get one, but you would never upgrade it.

No, it was to indicate the fact its a long standing seller of laptops and tech and not just some cheap China tablet maker.

You want idea of brand reliability use a google search, or check Amzazon reviews. Stop being so lazy.

Not everyone likes them, but they have won awards in the past (which the website has listed in the link - bottom right corner of page)

Without trying to sound too ungrateful the link taught me nothing about the brand. I did my 20 seconds of research which involved reading the conclusion of a review for an established website. Basically summed up as decent screen but sluggish. My interest ended there.

I'm far from lazy, get your facts right clown. I was stating that I hadn't heard of the brand, which was my way of saying I have no interest in ever buying one of their products. I didn't ask for you to waste your time sending me a link to a product list.

For those that program apps via languages like YoYos Gamemaker, there is a USB driver for development (if you prefer to test via the USB, instead of Wifi). [Gamemaker Pro and Master only]

Paranoid much?

Apple products beat their rivals because they do the same thing in a better/easier/more efficient way. They are good because they work and they do what they need to do very well all of the time.

I'm not saying Android and other high end products are rubbish, far from it. 10 years ago before I had kids I would have jumped at Android and the chance to waste my life "customising" the OS in true geek fashion but these days my time is far more precious than it was back then so I need something that works and works well all of the time without any hassle.

Comparing a cheap tablet to a high end one because the "parts are the same" is a bit like saying a base 1.4 Ford Focus is identical to a top end BMW because they "both have 4 wheels and 4 seats". Whilst they fundamentally do the same thing, it's the way it's achieved that is the winner.

The iPad Air wins in all the reviews because it does everything a tablet should better than it's competitors for the majorty of the populous, open or not doesn't come into it unless the review was specifically about "the best tablet you can mess under the hood with".

Apple aren't everything but they make good stuff - if that means a slight premium I am fine with that.

PS nobody is free, you may think you are with your Android, and I'm guessing Ubuntu/Linux (you strike me as that type), but there is no freedom.

As far as I know, Medion in Germany is like MESH computers or Emachine was once in UK. The are biggest PC seller in Germany though. They do sell low, middle and high budget PC.

Try working in an Apple support call centre i can 100% state they do NOT work and do what they need to all of the time.

My brother brought one full price at £165 at Asda a few months ago, he was really chuffed. So when this offer came on I ordered one. The company are amazing with excellent customer service and over 22k positive feed back over the last year. 12 month warranty and 14 days to change your mind. How could you go wrong for under £80?
