80% Review Creative ZiiO 7" Multimedia Tablet | Notebookcheck
7 inch entertainer. Creative launches entertainment tablets for little money with its ZiiO range. Despite the low price, the tablets are to be suitable for rendering HD media. In any case, a 1 GHz CPU does its job inside the small devices.

The Ziio 7” is hard to recommend despite its low price owing to a few critical issues that retard overall usability.

70% Creative ZiiO 7? Tablet Review
Source: T Break English
Priced at AED 1199, the Creative ZiiO is tad just a bit pricier than what I think it should’ve been to make it really stand out. I say this because the iPad sells for 1699 and offers twice the capacity as well as the larger screen. However, that still doesn’t make the ZiiO a bad product- far from it actually. In fact, I’d be surprised if Creative isn’t working on the second generation of ZiiO already.

The price is about right for this 7in tablet but you really notice the features and hardware credentials that are sacrificed. Even so, we think the Creative Ziio is a good introduction to tablet computing and one of the better entry-level tablets around.

Creative Ziio 7: A Creative Tablet - Literally
Source: Inside HW English
The final impression about Creative’s ZiiO depends mostly on what you’re expecting of it. If you’re looking for the latest the technology has to offer, a tablet that will be able to use its strong hardware to fulfil your every need, and price isn’t a significant factor, feel free to look elsewhere. On the other hand, if you need a device with flawless response to your multimedia requirements, and at an accessible price at that, Creative ZiiO might just be the weapon of choice. The device is far from flawless, but it’s also very advantageous in some aspects, especially because it offers “that much more” compared to similarly priced no-name devices. It’s obvious that ZiiO was made with multimedia in mind, and it’s well above average in this department. The basic things, such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, e-mail or games the likes of Angry Birds will also work just as intended, with the exception of the lack of proper Flash support while browsing the web. If there had been a good set of headphones included in the bundle as well, the final judgement would have been even better, but this way, suffice to say that it’s a very solid, moderately-priced first hit from Creative.

The Creative Ziio's screen's colours look washed-out, its built-in app store is horrible and it uses an outmoded resistive touchscreen, but it's still one of the best sub-£200 tablets money can buy. Video playback is decent, it's a good-looking device and with a bit of know-how and an hour or two's tinkering you can seriously boost its functionality.

Creative Ziio 7in Android tablet
Source: Reg Hardware English
The Creative Ziio does look rather limited when compared to some of its more ambitious tablet rivals – indeed, the refusal to provide access to the Android Market certainly seems like a rather short-sighted. But if you simply think of it as a portable media player with a 7in screen and a web browser, then it’s a pretty good effort – and one that will earn its keep if you want to listen to music or watch some films on when travelling.

Priced at £200 for the 8GB version and £220 for the 16GB, the Ziio isn't as cheap as it feels. We can't help feeling that money would be better spent on a similarly portable but far more versatile netbook. Or, you know, spend a bit more and get a grown-up tablet.

Overall, though, the ZiiO 10in is simply unpleasant to use, making it a poor choice despite the low price. If you’re looking for a bargain basement tablet, we’d recommend the Advent Vega instead, or Creative's own ZiiO 7in at a now very cheap £150.
