Cheap tablet, jerky transitions and slow loading times, battery quickly drained

ViewSonic ViewPad 10e

from Tech Advisor
ViewSonic hypes the ViewPad 10e as a high-performance entertainment tablet but this simply wasn't our experience. Plasticky build quality should be expected for a cheap device although the ViewPad 10e does have a good screen and some useful connectivity. Ultimately it falls down on performance. We’d suggest it's not worth spending £199 to be constantly frustrated by an unresponsive experience... Full review

Quite thin, web browsing is quite nice, not too heavy

ViewSonic ViewPad 10e

from Coolsmartphone

Overall for the money the Viewpad is a great device. The screen alone puts the Viewpad ahead of its competitors. You just need to think what you will really do with a tablet like this. Watch videos, listen to music, read books, play games, browse the web and possibly video call people. All of that is achievable with the Viewpad. It would make an ideal cheap tablet to take on holiday, loaded up with films, books, music and games.

Yes some people may get annoyed by the lack of Android Market but I think the for the money and the target market, the offered replacement is perfectly adequa... Full review

Looks like some sort of digital picture frame with its very cheap plastic casing

Viewsonic ViewPad 7e

from PhoneArena
Resisting its $200 price point from getting the best of us, there’s no kidding that it’s undeniably affordable on any budget. However, even though it packs the usefulness of such things like a microHDMI port, microSD card slot, and cameras, it is not a polished product that prides quality above all things. Actually, it is way worse than the Amazon Kindle Fire which comes at the same price or the Nook Color, which is priced at $250. Yes, these may lack some features the ViewPad 7e has, but are way better when it comes to real life usage... Full review

It fails to impress, even at a low price

Viewsonic ViewPad 7e

from TechRadar
We're not about to rate the ViewSonic ViewPad 7e as a must-purchase, especially because we think the similarly priced Amazon Kindle Fire will make its way to the UK eventually. But, for now, the ViewSonic ViewPad 7e is not a bad purchase compared to the much more expensive 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab. You get all the basics of Android without actually running the Android 3.2 operating system... Full review

Overall, this is a tablet that's hard to recommend

Viewsonic ViewPad 10pro

from TechRadar
Even those few users who might benefit from having Windows 7 and Android on the same device will find some serious problems with the ViewSonic ViewPad 10Pro. Android runs too slowly to be useful and apps didn't install. The screen is also too dark. Overall, this is a tablet we can't recommend... Full review

If you can ignore the minor flaws, the Viewpad 10s is a perfect companion on the go

Viewsonic ViewPad 10s

from Notebookcheck

Aside from a lot of fun, testing the ViewPad 10s also bestowed us with a lot of frustration. Manual deleting of apps from the memory via task manager gets annoying after a while. However, this is not only a problem of the Viewsonic, but of many other Android pads as well. 512 MBs of RAM is quickly filled. It's comparable with, for example, the latest Windows PC that has to work with a 512 MB RAM in Windows. The "Home" key's positioning and the lateral ports' magnetic cover are also unfavorable.
The capacitive touchscreen responds extremely fast to finger inputs – sometimes even t... Full review

A fast and well-built Android tablet, but Advent's Vega is better value.

Viewsonic ViewPad 10s

from Expert Reviews
Although the dual-core Tegra 2 processor is capable of decoding HD video, you can't watch it in its full glory on the 1,024x600 screen. We did find the ViewPad extremely quick, with snappy transitions between screens. Aside from the larger amount of storage, the ViewPad 10s is essentially almost identical to the Advent Vega. We don't feel the larger memory card is worth the extra £26, when you can pick up a 16GB MicroSD card for £11, and installing the Market is trickier than on the Vega... Full review

It is nowhere close to being in the forefront of the tablet space

Viewsonic ViewPad 10

from PhoneArena

Nowhere close to being in the forefront of the tablet space, the outdated and non-optimized Android experience with the ViewSonic ViewPad 10 is an appalling step backwards in the opposite direction that Google is taking their beloved platform. Though, it’s nice to see that you literally have the full advantage of a mobile laptop thanks to Windows 7 – even more when you’ve got various ports at your disposal to enhance the experience. However, the poor implementation of Android, plus the mediocre screen and insufficient battery life leave an overall bitter taste after using... Full review

Software build isn't particularly stable and the feel of the tablet in the hand isn’t that good either

Viewsonic ViewPad 10s

from Pocket-lint
The end result is a tablet that only really feels comfortable browsing the web and watching video, and then accepting that crashes are more frequent than they should be in these areas and the screen could be better. For some that might be acceptable, but despite being asked to pay a little more than you might elsewhere, there is seemingly little to get excited about. The ViewSonic ViewPad 10s, overall, isn’t particularly stable as a software build and the feel of the tablet in the hand isn’t that good either, making it difficult to recommend... Full review

Decent internal specs simply can't match up to an experience with cut corners and a lack of optimised software

Viewsonic ViewPad 10s

from Techradar
The ViewSonic ViewPad 10s doesn't come across as a tablet catastrophe, but decent internal specs simply can't match up to an experience with cut corners and a lack of optimised software.It doesn't stand up as a budget machine against the likes of the Advent Vega just below it in price or original iPad just above it (while it lasts), and in terms of overall experience it's just not even fit to gaze upon the iPad 2 or Motorola Xoom..

Darn, there are no reviews yet for this manufacturer.
