Hopefully this will be of use to someone. I follow a few ebayers and this seller regularly put up decent deals.

Not current edge stuff but a cheap Windows tablet nonetheless. Shame that the Windows 10 free upgrade is now over though.

I brought one about 18 months ago to play around with. Decent enough for the price. Good if you like Windows.

I thought this had 2gb ram?

Can you install Windows 7 on this?

Windows 7 will likely be missing a lot of drivers like wifi and touchscreen for this device so not advisable. Plus Windows 8.1 and 10 work better with lower amounts of ram.

Without an HDMI port I think there are better options for a little more money if you fancy plugging it into the TV and running Kodi.

But I think the best use for these devices now aren't even as tablets but as a wireless 2nd screen for another tablet or laptop. Windows 10's Projecting to this PC feature is awesome, I picked up one of the Archos 90 8.9" tablets a while back for £50 just because it was only £50 and it's sat doing nothing because Windows isn't a great tablet OS and I have a Dell Venue 11 anyway. But now I can pop it to the side of my Venue 11 as a second wireless display that I can throw in the case carry bag and always have a second display with me wherever I go. Windows even keeps full touch functionality on the second display. That is invaluable.

So as a tablet I'm sure many will smirk at 1gb of ram and it being Windows, but how about as a £40 wireless display?

I'm tempted to get one just to load sickbeard on or something. Or use it to get usenet downloads instead of faffing about using main pc on all the time.

I'm pretty sure it doesn't have an HDMI out on it. If you're just talking about something to manage torrents downloading to a NAS then yeah it'll handle that just dandy, but for actual media consumption unless you have it outputting to a wireless display just keep in mind I'm pretty sure it has no HDMI port.

That's just the type of thing I want it for bigyo. Although I see there's linx tablets with the hdmi out for £42.99

So if you have 2 windows 10 PCs, can you project or extend the screen from one to the other? How do you do that?

I've had a problem with this tablet turning itself off almost instantly when it's turned on, seems i'm not the only one judging by Google. Mine runs on Android. Anyone know of a solution to this?

Can some one please recommend a decent tablet for connecting to a TV via HDMI-
Just for watching movies and Youtube.
Thanks

You can only project from a device that supports miracast. Basically in the latest 1607 build of windows in the settings app go to system settings, and projecting to this pc for the device to be the receiver and under 'Windows PCs and phones can project to this PC when you say it's OK chose either available everywhere or available on secure networks, also for a tablet type device uncheck This PC can only be discovered when it is plugged in.

Then on the pc to stream from click the little notification button down in the bottom right, the click connect and it should show up the device as a wireless display. It will probably mirror the display at first so you then need to click the notification button again and click Project and change that to extend to.

Voila! wireless second screen!

Thanks for the post. Just bought it.

I bought this windows 8.1 tab just to play with. I wondered if anyone has successfully installed windows 10. I tried but the installation failed because of insufficient disk space. I have 10gb available but the upgrade insists on 16gb. Otherwise the update was possible

I've updated Windows 8.1 devices with only 32gb of storage before. Do a disk cleanup to try and make some space and then uninstall what ever bloatware or software came with the tablet.

I soft bricked it trying to delete the recovery partition. So I then booted from the recovery usb I'd created immediately on receiving the tablet. Then at the dos prompt I ran setup and win 10 installed from a previously created boot usb. I had backed up the original 8.1 drivers when creating the recovery usb. So a visit to device manager allowede to install all the required drivers. All work fine now except for the cameras. I think the camera fault is from a duff win 10 update. I understand a fix is on the way. For the price a very good tablet. Recommended
