Advent Vega: Beware awful Quality Control, even on refurbs.
At first glance buying this tablet appears a no-brainer. Where else can you find a 10" capacitive display, 512Mb and a dual core processor for about £100? That was the state of play in Q1 2012. I had to send mine back, a relatively painless experience. The problems were two fold, and I believe, quite common with the Advent Vega. The screen really does have a ludicrous viewing angle- you may well have to tilt it as you read down the screen. This is a well documented problem, and being mostly refurbished units on sale should not still occur. But it does, hence I was skeptical that an "update" could fix it. The deal killer for me was that the screen was also completely unresponsive. Once in standby I couldn't swipe the screen to reawaken the tablet. Some people have good experiences, but for me the lead time to buy it and possibly send back several times meant my money could be better spent elsewhere.Read full review
Unbrickabble and excellent tablet
Excellent tablet with easy upgrading and no chance of bricking.Running VegaCream now which is superb but have tried loads of other os's with no problems.Definitely a good buy.
As New Advent Vega - Great Service - Decent Spec & Budget Price
The service from Science & Technology was 100%. Machine was new or indistinguishable from new in brown box made specifically to fit tablet and accessories. Advent Vega as standard has a decent processor with with a mid to low range screen and build but an old version of android. With the addition of custom ROM viewcomb using a later (Honeycomb 3.2)android version this has become overall a decent and quick tablet with no major failings at the price of a budget tablet.
Brilliant, lightweight compact. Great value
Bought this for my son, to replace an old laptop...he is so happy with it, half the size/weight of laptop, loads of new features..can't believe his luck and I couldn't believe the price!!! I don't do tech speak so can only say it does what it says on the tin!!! Have recommended to friends.
