Connect 10 Tablet Review (Viglen)


December 27, 2016

I purchased the Connect 10.1  Tablet (Viglen) from eBuyer earlier this month. The tablet has the following specifications:

  • Intel 1.33GHz quad core processor
  • 1GB RAM + 32GB Storage
  • 10.1" IPS Display
  • WiFi + Bluetooth
  • Windows 10

 

I come from an Apple background, my main machine is a core i5 5K iMac as well as a Macbook Pro. When buying this Connect tablet, it was purely for using on the sofa for casual browsing and for taking along with me on an international trip over Christmas. Given the purchase price of £45, it was a no-brainer. I wasn’t expecting it to replace my Mac setup or become my main system. 

 

My impressions having used it solely on my trip to Africa for one week (didn’t take my Macbook with me) and found it to be capable. In some words, I would say it exceeded my expectations. I was surprised by the performance and I can only imagine what the higher spec’d devices could do. It ran everything I threw at it. 

 

Positives:

  • USB slot
  • HDMI
  • Full Windows 10 experience
  • Good battery life

 

Negatives:

  • Material on the back end is a rubber’ish texture
  • Webcam is poor but to be expected at this price point

 

But really, for £45 for a full blown Windows 10 experience which ran Kodi, multiple tabs, internet, emails - I really REALLY can’t fault it. Go get one.

Update (11th April 2017)

I have, since the above review, upgraded the connect 10 tablet to a higher specification which has 2GB ram. I feel that this is the perfect tablet spec, the 2gb ram allows for quick transitions and faster loading times - not to mention the rendering on websites. Also, this model seems to have a plastic back casing which is much welcomed and as you can see from the above review, I hated the rubber finish to the previous model.

Remember, when on the go with your tablet, you need:
