Saints Row IV Benchmarked

 

Turn off your brain, prepare to laugh. You do not have to play Saints Row IV for very long before you realize that it is a bunch of anarcho-baloney. Prime grade baloney, that is. Whether the game's graphics and hardware appetite are equally as...

Despite the short length of the clip, the benchmark delivers relatively consistent results. In our experience, the amount of resources needed to compute this passage is above average, but we are not talking about anything extreme. During some scenes,...

Entry-level revisited. Lenovo releases a budget-friendly 7-inch t

Low price; Bright dsiplay; Sturdy design; Micro-SD card slot

Quality of the materials; Display resolution; Camera produces mediocre pictures; Colors are not very vivid

Lenovo builds an overall decent low-priced tablet - but hampers it with a low resolution display.

Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 review: how important is audio quality in a budget tablet?

 

It's not easy being a 7-inch tablet these days. With relatively inexpensive devices like the ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7 and the refreshed Nexus 7 offering a

Sturdy design ; Good sound quality

Subpar display ; Software update unlikely ; Sluggish performance, some hiccups

With the IdeaTab A1000, Lenovo focused on audio quality, but the device's poor performance and disappointing display are a letdown.

The $129 Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 is a cheap Android tablet with good speakers, but its performance falls short of other budget slates'.

Comfortable and lightweight design; Quality stereo speakers; Solid viewing angles; microSD Card slot; Inexpensive

Below-average performance and graphics; Dim display

At $129, the Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 is a capable Android tablet for everyday Web browsing, music listening and casual gaming. We also like that it gets more than 8 hours on a charge, but wish it offered just a little more performance.While it doesn't...

Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 review

 

Not too long ago there was a hard line one could draw between tablets that are obviously crap and those worth your time and money. After the Nook tablets and Nexus 7 came along you could almost declare that buying a tablet under $200 was a bad idea....

Loud front-facing speakers ; UI skin isn't too extensive ; Decent battery life

Low-res screen with poor viewing angles ; Little room for apps and data ; Slightly sluggish performance ; Mediocre front camera

The IdeaTab A1000's specs aren't so different from the original Nexus 7, but the poor hardware choices Lenovo made make this a bad purchase, even though it’s priced cheap.

The Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 might be among the most affordable tablets available, but its entertainment focus and front-facing speakers aren't enough to make up for an otherwise below average device.

Loud, front-facing stereo speakers. Affordable. Runs Android 4.2

Below average display with poor viewing angle. Clunky build. Middling battery life

It's no longer enough to simply make a serviceable low-cost Android tablet—they have to be able to compete with high-quality, low-cost products like the Google Nexus 7 or Amazon Kindle Fire HD. The Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 ($159.99 list) is, at this point,...

Lenovo A1000

 

Even when compared to other sub-$200 tablets in its weight class, the Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 comes up short in features, performance, and screen quality. While the microSD storage expansion is welcome here, it's not reason enough to buy the tablet. There...

The Lenovo IdeaTab A1000's Dolby Digital audio enhancement features make almost any pair of headphones sound great, and the microSD expansion slot is a welcome addition.

The tablet's screen is unfashionably low-res, with washed out color and narrow viewing angles. Graphics-heavy games chug something awful, apps sometimes stutter when launched, and Netflix video doesn't play.

The Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 is a meek 7-inch tablet that cuts far too many corners to reach its budget price.

Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 Review

 

Sure to attract some budget conscious individuals, the $160 priced Lenovo IdeaTab A1000 is no doubt something noteworthy to mention over other things. Seriously, we're crossing our fingers with this one, especially considering it's cheap – though, it...

Dirt Cheap ; Good battery life

Sluggish performance ; Low quality display ; Heavy in weight ; Bland design

Dirt cheap Android tablets are in abundance, but after the recent Google Nexus 7, it reestablished what it means to be a fantastic budget offering – while at the same time, set the bar higher for everyone else too. Even with its lower $160 base price...

Lenovo's IdeaTab A1000 is craptastically cheap

 

If someone can make a $US100 tablet that is awesome, it will sell like hotcakes sprinkled with fairy dust and deep-fried in freedom. But this is not that tablet. The IdeaTab A1000 is Lenovo's bargain-basement 7-inch Android offering, and its cheapness...

If you just want a cheap Android tablet to have around, this one qualifies. But do yourself a favor and try to scrape up the extra Benjamin for a Nexus 7, which runs Android 4.3 (the A1000 runs 4.1) and sports a 1280 x 800-pixel IPS screen that's a...
