Reviews for the LG Optimus Pad V900

86% Review LG V900 Optimus Pad Tablet/MID | Notebookcheck
1, 2, or 3D? LG highlights innovations with the V900 Optimus Pad. The 8.9 inch, handy tablet can create and play three dimensional videos. The pad also scores with a brilliant IPS screen. The LG product is also interesting in view of its price. It's supposed to cost 800 euros with a 32 GB memory and 3G module.

Until the price falls, then, we’d urge you look elsewhere. For a quality compact Android tablet, the HTC Flyer represents far better value, and for a larger screened tablet the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 knocks spots off it in most departments.

But then there’s the price: £750. Yes, you do get a 3G modem for that money, but even so, that’s a staggeringly optimistic amount of money. If the Optimus Pad were a staggeringly impressive tablet, fair enough, but it’s not. It’s good, but not that good.

Ultimately LG has failed here. It has added technology that’s not needed and made a device that’s likely to be overlooked by many. There are just better Honeycomb experiences on the market.

We really like the LG Optimus Pad: it’s quick, portable and intuitive to use. However while we applaud LG for striking out and including a feature as unique as 3D, it won’t have universal appeal and it is bound to push up the price. LG has yet to announce pricing, but it’s available for £699 online, which seems a huge premium to pay – especially considering you can get the Asus Eee Pad Transformer for £379.

LG Optimus Pad review: Hands on
Source: T3 English
LG, however, has opted for something right in the middle, and so the screen on their new LG Optimus Pad is a comfortable 8.9-inch display, which LG reckon is perfectly balanced for watching movies and holding with one hand. The design of the Optimus Pad is very familiar, with the standard black bezel surrounding the display. Beneath the glossy black shell lurks a dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM.
