Advent Vega Review

 

Low-cost Android tablets aren't unusual; good low-cost Android tablets are a different matter. Advent's Vega slate - on sale through DSG's PC World, Currys and Dixons in the UK - bucks the Android trend by carrying a low sticker price of £249 ($395)...

There are times – web browsing, for instance – when we had to remind ourselves how cheap the Vega is, given its performance lived up to other far more expensive tablets. At other times, the cost-cutting required to hit that price reared its head, with...

Advent Vega review

 

Can this budget Android 2.2 tablet compete with its more expensive competition?

Responsive ; Good browsing experience ; Battery is adequate

No Home button ; Silver buttons are awful ; No Android Market ; Budget features

The Advent Vega is the latest Android-clad touchscreen tablet to take on the Apple iPad.

The Vega tablet, however, may be Advent's finest achievement yet. At the time of writing, the company is unable to keep it in stock for more than a couple of hours at a time, and entire forums are dedicated to keeping a watch on when new batches arrive...

What it really boils down to is this: if you think tablet computing should be a seamless and simple experience, save up and get an iPad. The Vega, however, has all the plus points that attracted us to early netbooks before they became too...

Advent Vega review

 

With Apple dominating in the tablet PC market, some companies just can't wait to jump in and claim some of the lucrative action. Even when their products are not ready for release.

It would be kind to explain away the Advent Vega as an over-enthusiastic attempt to get a knock-down price iPad into the hands of the masses in time for Christmas. But this poor copy of Apple’s tablet appears more as another embarrassment to the Dixons...

Advent Vega review

 

A dual-core Tegra tablet for under £250. Has Advent produced the tablet to unseat Apple?

Exceptionally fast and great for movies, the rough edges are forgiveable given the low price

Advent Vega review

 

Just looking at the price, an Android Tablet for just £250 has got to be pretty rubbish hasn't it? After all, the Samsung Galaxy Tab is almost double that price. Fortunately, this is a misconception and the Advent Vega proves that a decent tablet...

It's cheap, but the high spec and decent screen make it a good choice - just make sure you install the Mod to get the Market.

Can an Android 2.2 10in tablet challenge the iPad at half the price? Advent hopes so

It’s unfair to expect perfection in a £250 tablet, and Advent has had to make compromises. You could argue that it’s made them in the right places: a fast processor, capacitive 10.1in screen and support for Android 2.2 make for a decent combination. If...

Advent Vega review

 

The Advent Vega seems to be the best value Android tablet on the market yet. The combination of specifications with price is unbeatable value. Surely something has to suffer to allow this thing to be so competitively priced. ...

Advent Vega

 

Following hot on the heels of the Apple iPad, the Advent Vega is the latest tablet to hit the market, and at a much lower price point than its rival. It can't come close to matching the iPad for quality, but the Vega does pack in Android, and has a lot...

Whether you'll like the Advent Vega will depend purely on what you intend to use it for. If you want it to be a multi-faceted device, letting you work on the move or download apps whenever you're bored, you'd be better off with the Apple iPad. However,...

Advent Vega review

 

Update: Advent has been in touch to tell us issues outputting sound through HDMI is down to our Sony TV. Apparently, it's a well-known issue, with discussions all over the web. We can't test it at the moment, since we only have Sony TVs to hand, but...

Price, snappy web browsing

Rough around the edges, screen ratio better suited for video than reading

Startlingly good value, but with Android minus Google support, you really need to know what you're letting yourself in for
