Vizio's 7-inch tablet makes underwhelming debut

 

This nameless tablet isn't as impressive as its 10-inch Vizio counterpart.

Vizio Tablet VTAB1008 (Wi-Fi)

 

The Vizio Tablet VTAB10008 wins points for originality, and adds some clever remote control functionality, but it's not powerful enough to compete with the best tablets out there.

Inexpensive. Universal remote capabilities. Good-looking Android customization. Three speakers. 4:3 aspect ratio makes device usable in both orientations.

Underpowered and laggy. A bit heavy. Display has poor viewing angles. Only 2GB of internal storage.

Vizio Tablet VTAB1008 review:

 

Vizio isn't the first name that springs to mind when you think of tablets, but it's not a company to be dismissed. In just a few short years, Vizio has popped onto the radar as one of the most powerful players in high-definition televisions using a...

The Vizio Tablet VTAB1008 stands out from the crowd of Android tablets with its unique size, customized interface, universal remote control capability, and affordable price.

Vizio's tablet isn't the thinnest, fastest, prettiest, cheapest, nor the most up-to-date tablet we've seen, and the viewing angles on its screen aren't great.

The Vizio Tablet makes a great competitor to 2010's Samsung Galaxy Tab, but lacks the grace, speed, and features of today's best tablets.

The Most Intriguing New Cameras of Fall 2011

 

The year 2011 marked the coming of age of Internet-connected ("smart") HDTVs. Though your TV's ethernet cable probably won't replace your cable TV quite yet, many more apps and video services will find their way into your TV--a far cry from 2010's...

Consumer review (cnet.com)

"Great product for the price (much cheaper than iPad)"

 

Had much difficulty accessing email and videos, while connected to my NetGear wireless router. Despite showing as connected to Wi-Fi, internet-based apps were sluggish at best and would report "No connectivity". As it were, the VTAB1008 is particular...

Cheap (paid 170 at Sams Club in 2011), Connects to Google Play app store (not some 3rd party app store), Access email (gmail, aol, etc), YouTube videos, Pandora (music), Flash-based games, Books, Connect remotely upload your own books and reader app.

Difficulty with wi-fi wireless network connectivity, Charging port is prone to breaking. User must not manually update Adobe Flash.

Consumer review (cnet.com)

"Cheaply made."

 

Will not purchase another Vizio product. Customer service offered one alternative. Could return it (with all my personal data) and receive a new one, or just eat the cost and be without a tablet. I'm not returning a tablet with all my personal data...

I choose to skip this section

Started having problems with Charge Port after just 4 months. Started to feel loose and then would not connect properly. Eventually stopped connecting and could no longer charge. Screen turned gray and just stopped working. AFTER 4 MONTHS.
