Looks good to me

I saw this in Staples Huntingdon and also a 10" android version with 1gb ram .

any1 have this that can confirm its quality

Looks ok to me too heat added

Anyone got one of these with W10 on it? How's it working?

Tempted, but put W10 on my last windows tablet and it broke it.

Will this handle Kodi?

​Of course.

What a weird name for a Tablet?.

What's your point of view, on 'Point of view'?, hahahaha.

How's that for a tongue twister ..... lol. :-)

Anyhdmi out?

They have them in the Oxford store too. Looks to be similar specs to the Linx tablets.

It is a shame that there is no HDMI port, but there is a single mini USB with adaptor to full size USB. Plus extra storage can be added via the micro sd card slot.
At this price point thou, you can not expect the same level of specs as a surface!

none in Leicester

Instagram has a Windows store app and the they are working on a snapchat one. However you can access the internet through any browser you wish to install.

You would have to be on a different Planet to even consider comparing an under £45 Windows Tablet, to that of a £500-£1000 Windows Surface Tablet costing at least 10-20+ times the cost of the OP's Deal?. :-(

Hehehehehehehe.

For one, I did not say the surface pro, I said surface (which would mean RT or version 3 with an Atom processor) I own both a surface RT and a surface pro. So I know what features they have. I was responding to the question about if it had an hdmi port, which it does not. But thanks for pointing out that this do not compare to those as well. At £44.30 it is a fantastic value budget Windows 10 Tablet and if you can find a better and cheaper windows tablet, please post the deal!!

Ok so, I'll give my initial impressions of this tablet to give you a rough idea whether you want to buy one or not but for £44.30 it's a steal. I usually hate small, cheap and tacky tablets but the spec alone is decent for a Windows 10 tablet and is even better than the Connect 9" tablet (1GB RAM).

So I rang my local Bolton store who reported he had one left but had already been opened, I disregarded this and thought everything would be intact (which he confirmed). I collected the tablet but sadly it looked like a display model which hadn't been mentioned to me - the whole casing was scratched to high hell, the screen was a mess and the tablet kept shutting off.

I rang the Warrington store who reported they had 8 to 9 all fully sealed. I asked him to put one aside and explained the situation. He called the Bolton store and authorised the replacement. I went up today to collect it and it was indeed fully sealed and in brand-new condition.

Just got it home and this one is much much better. It has a pre-applied screen protector, micro-usb cable, power adapter and an OTG cable (Micro-USB to Full Sized) and bagged. Setting up was a breeze and no different to a regular Windows 10 Laptop or Desktop from an OEM.

The tablet on first impressions, is fast and fluid. It does include the Point of View wallpapers but they're actually quite decent compared to most OEM wallpapers etc. Nothing pre-installed that bloats it down either so it's all good. I'm new to Windows 10 on a tablet but it's no different to a regular desktop.

Touch screen is adequately responsive to the touch as are the buttons - even has a touch sensitive Windows logo as the "home button". I'm yet to take the pre-applied screen protector off to try it bare but it'll be left on for a little while. The construction is all plastic so if you're looking for aluminium or similar, look elsewhere. You can tell it's a £40 tablet and not something that costs over £100 but the build-quality seems solid and has a nice weight to it.

The speakers are nothing special. Ok for times where you want to watch a human being attacked by a Cat or similar that your mum has sent you over Facebook, deeming it as "Funny" or light music but it's quite lifeless and somewhat quiet in comparison to say TV speakers. Obviously, it's expected on a small tablet anyway.

I'm continuing to use it. It's worth the price stated and in some cases this little Atom may be able to run the likes of HL2 (around 40 to 60fps) etc so gaming is possible.

All in all, I'm yet to use it for a while but it's a keeper at £44. As stated, don't expect the world and you'll be fine.

got the 8" display model, mine has windows 8.1 and a micro hdmi and a lead, not sure what thats for. Dont have any manual with it other than a quickstart leaflet.Did it come with a manual? I can't find one in the docs folder.

This model is the Windows 10 one, so which model do you have as the older Windows 8.1 ones were a different tablet and design. When I bought mine the store had both.

I have model TAB-P806W (V1.0)
seems pretty good, as it was display model got it for £40. They didn't have any other models apart from the 10" which was £119 I think.
