Liliputing

A good budget Android tablet

Velocity Micro Cruz T408

from Liliputing

Overall, I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the Cruz T408′s performance. It could certainly get better battery life, and the poor screen viewing angles could be problematic in some situations — especially if you want to watch movies or look at photos with a friend, but for $200 you could certainly do worse.

A decent low-cost tablet ruined by a poor screen and inadequate OS

Velocity Micro is known for well-priced, high-performing PCs, so I understand why the company would want to apply that ethos of craftsmanship and quality to tablets. Unfortunately, the Velocity Micro Cruz T408 suffers from the same problems that plague most discount tablets: an awful screen, an OS designed for phones, and a lack of the Google apps that most people expect from Android devices. While the Cruz T408 performs well, it's too user-unfriendly for the masses.

Inexpensive and solidly built

Velocity Micro Cruz T408

from Engadget

It's pretty obvious who the Cruz T408 is aimed at: people who just want a tablet -- any tablet -- and don't mind settling on Gingerbread so long as the device is dirt-cheap.

It's pretty obvious who the Cruz T408 is aimed at: people who just want a tablet -- any tablet -- and don't mind settling on Gingerbread so long as the device is dirt-cheap. Problem is, without Gmail or even Android Market, even these folks are likely to be disappointed. While GetJar and the Amazon Appstore offer viable alternatives, it takes only one or two missing-in-action apps to create a frustrating experience. And why should you subject yourself to that, when the Archos 80 G9, another 8-inch tablet, runs Android Honeycomb 3.2, Android Market and all, and costs just $100 more? And let's not even get started on the Kindle Fire, which will hit the same price point as the Cruz T408 when it ships later this fall. Sure, maybe you favor Gingerbread over the customized Amazonian UI, or absolutely need a Skype-acceptable camera or must have a microSD slot. But absent other reasons, simple bargain-hunting is becoming a weaker and weaker excuse to settle for something this forgettable.

Very clean, slim, and lightweight design with rock-bottom pricing

Velocity Micro Cruz T410

from Wired

It adds up to, well, nothing very impressive. But fortunately the Cruz has a major ace in its sleeve in the form of pricing that can undercut its competition by half. If price is your primary concern, it may be worth a look. But then again, if you’re that broke you probably shouldn’t be buying a tablet in the first place.

An attractive design for a budget-friendly price, but its performance and screen could be better

The $239 Velocity Cruz T408 tablet's affordable price will be very attractive to students and frugal tablet shoppers of all ages. And unlike with the Kindle Fire, you can use this slate to make video calls. However, the slate's somewhat sluggish performance and low-res display are turn-offs, as is the awkward skinning of Android. While the Cruz T408 is certainly worth a look, you'll probably be better off picking up the $199 Kindle Fire. Amazon's slate will have a faster dual-core CPU, a zippier browser, simpler interface, and easy access to more content.

Delivers Android 2.2 on a 7-inch screen for an affordable price

Velocity Micro Cruz T301

from CNET

The Cruz T301 from Velocity Micro is a physically solid little Android tablet with a decent set of features considering its low price. We don't recommend it for gamers or book lovers, or for chatty e-mailing and messaging, but if your gadget appetite is bigger than your wallet, you can have some fun with the T301.

The Cruz Micro is a nice little device, solidly built, and of better quality than many of the other small Android tablets that are currently flooding the market. Unfortunately, it suffers from a relatively low resolution and low brightness display that needs the best of lighting situations to read in. It is responsive and easy to use, but that doesn't matter much if you can't see what you're doing. In other words, the Velocity Cruz Micro isn't a bad device, but there are better options out there if you're looking for a small Android-based LCD eReader.

This tablet is awful! I have had it for a little over a year and have maybe been able to actually use it for a total of about 20 hours! I have had to send it back in once already because it gets stuck on the start up screen. Apps shut down automatically. Am getting ready to send it in yet again for the same issue - start up screen just spins and can't get past it. It won't register on my computer so I can try to do a factory reset. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT!!!! Less

THIS TABLET SUCKS!!

Velocity Micro Cruz T510

Everything the company says about this tablet is lies. First, of all this tablet has the tendency to shut down then after a few minutes turn back on BY ITSELF.

Everything the company says about this tablet is lies. First, of all this tablet has the tendency to shut down then after a few minutes turn back on BY ITSELF. Second, the market sucks, It does not offer all the options that the Google Play Market has to offer. Third,the internet will shut on its own when ever doing an activity on the tablet itself. Fourth, the screen glitches. Fifth, Netflix does not work on the tablet, it works on my phone and my Ipod but never on my tablet, you can only hear audio but no video input is displayed. Sixth, the tablet does not allow curtain emails to be setup it keeps giving error "can not connect to server" and you have to have a exchange account to put appointments into the calender. FURTHER more this tablet is a total waste of $200 dollars. Also For some reason this tablet does not connect to the computer via USB. If it was possible i wouldnt rate this tablet I exchanged it for another and it does the same errors and same problems.. Less

POOR CRUZ TABLET

Velocity Micro Cruz T301

After working a bit, it just won't start anymore, even after charging, or even it it's plugged into the power. No built-in dictionary as advertised, they lied.

After working a bit, it just won't start anymore, even after charging, or even it it's plugged into the power. No built-in dictionary as advertised, they lied. It has a calculator, but it's not changing into a scientific calculator, just like Apple's devices. It's very finger-print magnet. The screen looks really bad after several minutes of use. The included SD card supposedly included a firmware after, but apparently those files could not be found by the tablet. This is silly. The cheap price is just a luring device into buying this poor product. Less
