Reviews for the Yukyung Viliv S10

50% Viliv S10 Blade
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Viliv S10 Blade impresses with its resistive multitouch screen and slim form factor, but the tablet trips up when it comes to performance and usability. Also, $797 is a steep price to pay for mediocre performance, even with the long battery life. Users can find similar features and better performance in the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t, which costs $300 less. Overall, the S10 Blade creates the impression of a tablet that’s not quite ready nor yet worth the price.

Viliv S10 Blade Convertible Netbook/Tablet Review
Source: UMPC Portal English
The S10 is another high quality product from Viliv and a convertible netbook with features and options that very few other devices can match. Battery life is fantastic for a 1.2KG device and the style makes the S10 even more unique. We question the usefulness of multitouch for the average user and feel that 1.2KG is too heavy for long-duration tablet use but at the end of the day, there’s no significant disadvantage to having multitouch or a tablet-capable design.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 500: Integrated (onboard) graphics chip on the UL11L, US15L, and US15W chipsets with a licensed PowerVR SGX core. DirectX 10.1 support but because of low clock rates (100-200 MHz UL11L - US15) and only 4 shaders not suited for 3D games. The integrated video decoder accelerates the playback of HD videos (MPEG2, VC-1, AVC).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


Z530:

Power saving version of the Atom N270 with additional Virtualization Support and more power saving techniques. The performance is equal to the N270 and therefore only suited for basic tasks.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.2 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Yukyung: Yukyung Technologies Corporation is a Corean company, founded 1999. Their mini laptops are branded by the name "viliv".


50%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
