Reviews for the Viewsonic ViewPad 10e
Source: Tech Advisor Archive.org version
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.

As it stands the Viewsonic ViewPad 10e is a rather impressive large screen tablet with an attractive price tag. There are a few rough edges, like the absence of the Android Market and mediocre battery life, but nowhere near as many or as serious as I’ve encountered on other budget tablets. Battery life aside, its other shortcomings can be easily dealt with or should be eliminated by the imminent ICS update that it's due.

A great screen, slimline design and non-widescreen aspect instantly had us interested in ViewSonic's latest tablet, but these neat features are drowned-out by the laggy, outdated, buggy software. It also lacks Android Market support and Google's roster of apps. Some of its specs impress at the price, but as the tablet market develops, £199 is starting to not look all that cheap for a device like this.

But if all this sounds overly negative, just remind yourself that the ViewPad 10e is a 9.7in tablet that costs half as much as an iPad 2. No, it won’t have the power or features of a tablet at twice the price, but it’s thin and light, with a decent screen and good connectivity, and it handles basic tasks perfectly well. That’s more than we can say for an awful lot of budget tablets.
