Very portable Windows

POSTED BY: WMM , Sudbury, MA
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

I bought this as a Christmas present, so my impressions are only from setting it up to be immediately usable when the package is opened on December 25. However, I have a very favorable impression so far. The screen is bright and clear, the sound is quite good for tiny tablet speakers, and the performance seems peppy. The only problem I had in setting up the tablet was with installation of Microsoft Office, which got as far as 89% and no further; it prompted me to attach to the Internet again so it could complete, but I was already attached to the Internet. Word, at least, seems to work okay, even though I didn't complete the process, so I don't know if I'm missing anything significant from that omitted 11%. All the connections seem to work flawlessly; I installed a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse with no trouble, the micro-HDMI output worked perfectly with an Acer micro-HDMI to VGA adapter feeding my monitor, my 32GB microSD card popped in just fine and came up as drive D:, and my USB OTG cable worked great with a flash drive I had sitting around. The only drawback is that the USB port is used for both charging and USB peripherals, so you can't do both at the same time. There are hardware hacks that probably get around that problem, but it's more of an inconvenience than a serious issue for me. Bottom line, I think it's going to be very useful and a lot of fun for the person I bought it for, so I'm very pleased with my purchase.

A good little computer with Windows

This is a great machine. I had an Android 7", but was lacking the Windows system. Searched for one portable computer with Windows. After doing a few hours of research, I found this one. Got one and had a problem with it, but was replaced quickly by the seller and so far the one that I got has been working flawlessly. It's fast, good screen, convenient size, decent sound, and a very fast wireless connection. There is only one small problem with the screen, on one of the sides it keeps a bit of a grey shadow, I have not called Tech Support to see if it can be resolved, but it's not so bad that interferes with the quality of the overall image. For the convenience of the size, the features and the price, you can be sure this machine does the job quite well!!
