Spotted these in JTF Preston. Website says they're in store only. The website seems to allow you to check stock in other stores too.

Yes it's a cheap and cheerful Windows tab with only 1GB RAM, but might suit some on a tight budget who want to have a play.

Bought a couple of these from Tesco a few months back £53 each - excellent basic tablet running Win 10 - for basic surfing email and video works very well - better than my expensive Toshiba

Surprised to see the Viglen name still around. Last I knew, Amstrad owned the company.

Not £0.00 for me. Still £35.99

Seem to be able to order online,. but not sure how to get free delivery, so it's £5 otherwise.

WTF is JTF? Never heard of 'em.

I have one and it is great for the price. Ideally you will combine it with a matching keyboard with pogo connector. These keyboards don't need to be charged because the pogo connector works more or less like USB. So this frees up the USB port for charging at all times.

​It's like Makro. Handful of shops selling bulk buy etc

Cold Alan Sugar's company.

I remember the days when Viglen ads were on the last page of computer mags.

Wow, nearly 14 hours down, 10 or so posts and the normal '1GB is not enough for Windows, these are trash/I wouldn't use one if it was given to me free' brigade hasn't shown up! Great price

Anyone who bought one knows if it is micro USB charging or a barrel charger? USB obviously much more practical for top up charges

Are you sure, as my Connect 10 has micro USB but won't take a charge over it? Sorry to ask again but want to be sure.

Yeah, I've got one here. TF Card, Headphone, Micro HDMI and Micro USB are the only ports on it so yeah, it charges through the Micro USB.

Alan Sugar's company??? How would you buy something from a guy with a name like SUGAR???

....And Sugar voted in favour of BREXIT ffs!!

I got 3 to use as Sonos / other remotes. They are ok...I find the touch response pretty uninspring. if I wanted to tablet to do something for more than 20 seconds I'd choose something else personally.

Spruceby has confirmed. Just to add I bought mine from Tesco, still the same Viglen Connect 9 model.
Be aware it can be a pain to upgrade Windows on the 16GB variant.
