Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1

As the name implies, the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 Tablet was designed to withstand drops, crashing waves, blazing hot deserts and snowstorms. This tablet is coated in magnesium-alloy and bumpers to absorb shock. This 10.1 inch device has a 1600 x 1200 resolution screen, with an outstanding brightness of up to 800 nits, which will allow visibility in bright sunlight. The touchscreen can be used with an included stylus, and the physical buttons have been designed so that even gloved hands can use this tablet with ease. In addition to the usual front facing and rear facing cameras, there is an optional barcode reader.

The Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 Tablet runs Windows 8 Pro 64 bit with plenty of apps that maintain the security of this device and the data it contains. The device also comes with a three year warranty. The battery and the 128GB SSD can be removed easily and swapped. Powered by a third generation Intel Core i5-3437U that clocks in at 1.9 GHz paired with 2 GB of RAM, this device will match up to the best performing tablets out there on the market. It should be able to handle most tasks and programs with ease. Graphics are handled by integrated Intel graphics, and battery life is impressive for a device of this class, being rated to last approximately 6 hours of very heavy use. For those seeking a powerful tablet that can weather extreme conditions, this is top of the line.

Summing up, the Toughpad is a decent Windows 8 tablet, featuring an all but unbreakable chassis, robust Becrypt software and powerful Intel Core processor. However, it's hefty weight, average battery life and lacklustre screen hamper its ability to shine. Add to this its £2000-plus cost and we have to question how many businesses, outside of those operating in hazardous environments or dealing with sensite data, will be willing to pay the premium price.

Panasonic’s Tough-branded products are amongst our favourites because their rugged design allows them to withstand more punishment than regular Ultrabooks. If you work in extreme environments and need a fully ruggidised device, the Toughpad FZ-G1 is the machine of choice. It may be expensive, but it won't let you down when it counts.

As a one-off purchase though, the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 could prove tough to justify given its price, but its target market will surely feel the benefit of volume discounts. If stylus use is important then it could prove challenging but as a rugged tablet, it'll survive a soaking and it is certainly robust just don’t be fooled by that metallic finish, there’s a fair bit of plastic here too.

Panasonic ToughPad FZ-M1

With the society these days relying a lot on having our data available digitally in our devices, having proper protection for them is a priority for most now. The 7-inch Panasonic Toughpad FZ-M1 is claimed to be the thinnest rugged tablet.

Its fanless 1.6 GHz Core i5 vPro processor uses very little power. As a result cooling is not required and it stays quiet. It comes with a minimum of 4 GB RAM and a 128 GB SSD; performance wise it shouldn't have much problems running the software you're going to use on Windows 8.1 Pro. The 7-inch display has a modest 1280 by 800 pixel resolution, but it features glove touch technology and a layer of anti-reflection coating.

As expected, the tablet has been built to resist shocks, drops and extreme temperatures and it is also dust and water resistant. For all its armor, it's surprisingly light at only 540 grams and 18 mm thick. Battery life is a little disappointing at roughly 8 hours of full use, but the battery is interchangeable.

This tablet is not cheap. It's definitely for those that are willing to spend a premium on getting an extremely resistant device to safeguard their data. But with its impressive internals and strong shell, it's definitely worth looking at.

Takes a licking. Panasonic's Toughpad FZ-M1 is an extremely robust 7-inch Windows 8.1 tablet. The Core i5 processor is cooled passively, which prevents continuous top-notch performance.

For contractors, law enforcement agents, and other professionals who need a device that can keep up and adapt to their rough-and-tumble jobs, the Toughpad offers durability in spades. The anti-reflective display is easy to see outdoors. And while the low-voltage CPU struggles with more intense apps and games, the internals are more than enough to handle tasks such as data entry or swiping a few credit cards.

Panasonic's Toughpad FZ-M1 is solid in terms of both build quality and performance, and it's also quiet thanks to a reliance on passive cooling. Other plus points include a bright display and swappable components, which you may need to take advantage of thanks to lacklustre battery life.

Unless you’re able to deploy applications specifically designed for Windows tablets of this size, the usability of the FZ-M1 is restricted by its screen size. Many small business users will be better served by the Panasonic Toughpad JT-B1 7in Android tablet or the 10in FZ-G1 Windows tablet, which has a screen that is much better suited to desktop use.

The Toughpad is a worthy replacement for a rugged PDA, but the base unit has few I/O ports and any industrial peripherals are optional extras. Nevertheless, it packs a decent amount of processing power into a surprisingly light device with reasonable battery life for its size.

Customisation, durability and service/support offered by Panasonic are top-notch. The ToughPad just misses out on full marks due to the average battery life with the standard issue power pack. Pricing starts at £1,183 so the ToughPad represents a significant investment. However, this device looks capable of reaching the quoted five year lifespan without a problem and should provide a good ROI.

The Toughpad FZ-E1 has a very clear purpose and that makes it tricky to criticise. As a tablet/smartphone it treads the middle ground with average specifications, passable OS and pleasant enough performance.

Crucially, though, Panasonic’s latest justifies its cost in key areas. It’s got good power, a phenomenal battery and rugged features that no other tablet can offer. Panasonic has designed the FZ-E1 to appeal to workers in military, medical and other demanding industries, and they’ll be able to justify its cost and make use of its features – but, for most of us, it’s overkill.

Panasonic's Toughpad FZ-Q2 is more about (semi) ruggedness than a cutting-edge spec. It's certainly tougher than your average 2-in-1 detachable, but the price -- starting at €1,995 -- reflects that, as you'd expect.

Comment

Panasonic: Panasonic Corporation, formerly known as Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd., is a multinational corporation based in Japan. Its main business is in electronics manufacturing and produces products under a variety of names including Panasonic and Technics. Since its founding in 1918, it grew to become the largest Japanese electronics producer. In addition to electronics, Panasonic offers non-electronic products and services such as home renovation services. Panasonic is an international notebook manufacturer, but with rather small market shares and few laptop reviews. Panasonic concentrates its notebook sortiment primarily to the niche of ruggedized notebooks, which are made for rough outdoor usage.

From 2013-2016, Panasonic has primarily offered tablets and, to a lesser extent, also smartphones. However, there are only few smartphone reviews.
