Do Not Buy!!!!
Read all the terrible reviews but I thought I'd try the tablet and see if it's really as bad as ppl say,
well guess what sadly it is.! brought 3 of these for my 3 kids and so far I've taken 2 of them back twice now I've just ended up getting a complete refund, kids are so upset, what a pain it's been having these stupid faulty things, keeps flashing non stop, all pixelated, has a mind of its own. Can't use it aT all half the time. Don't waste your time or money on these. Absolutely terrible and poor.
This tablet is honestly one of the worst i knew it wasn't going to be no ipad or samsung tablet but i still thought it would run alright but boy was i wrong. It's got such a bad battery life, it's to slow for me and it always has an error message or a problem
Cheap price but can have issues
Bought the Protab about 6 months ago. Was working OK but then would not let you enter the password at the password screen to get into Windows 10. I ended up having to reformat the drive & reinstall windows 10 again. Lost all files on the system so if you are going to use this devise I would have a healthy backup regime in place. After installing new windows 10 with latest updates the internet connection supplied with the ProTab using supplied Broadcom internet connection would not connect. Surfing the net this appears to be a common problem. It...appears there are no suitable drivers in the latest windows 10 to run it. I ended up getting a usb internet connection via eBay for under $10 & it works fine. The speaker supplied with the unit is ordinary but works OK with an external speaker attached. Battery life is good & the screen is not bad for the price & detachable key board is handy. Not a lot of disc space left after installing Windows 10. I was left with about 8GB from the 32GB disc although you can add a SD card for further disc space Like all things you get what you pay for but it does the job for internet surfing & lite computer duties.
Battery life is the worse
I bought this tablet fully knowing that I should not have high expectations because of the price. However, the battery life is so abysmal. It goes down so quickly that you can't watch videos online. Games will freeze the tablet and so does general internet browsing. It is just a tablet for namesake.
The tablet you're have when your not having a Tablet.
The tablet you have when you're not having a Tablet. Android errors half the times I turn it on. Slow when it does work. It is cheap and nasty. Only good use I have found for it is as a doorstop and even for this, it is the wrong shape.
Waste of money
Well my son didn't even have his tablet a month and it already stuffed up son was sitting on bed holding tablet next we heard a noise the screen crack yes there cheap but you don't expect a screen to break when just holding the device contacted target they was no help won't be shopping there again nothing but faulty cheap junk
Buy a Screen Protector!
The ProTab 10.1" is an OK tablet for its price range. I have a large family with young children, so I have purchased a number of ProTab's throughout the year. Unfortunately they all have the same problem in that any drop or knock to the tablet can actually damage and crack the screen. At 10.1", this screen appears to be just as susceptible so I would highly recommend purchasing a screen protector if you are purchasing this for a child. The tablet is also somewhat slow and can have some problems with some applications. it is perfectly fine, howe...ver, for browsing or viewing videos in YouTube. You definitely get what you pay for, however, with this tablet. It is great for Children, but perhaps not so great if you are looking at using this tablet for any serious work.
yes it cheap, so i expected cheap...I didn't expect a bloody disaster of a tab.
This has got to be the worst tablet i have ever had the misfortune to buy. Dont waste your money guys...pay a little more for quality. As if using the whole thing isnt bad enough, the sound is atrocious. The worst sound I have heard on any tablet. It stalls...chrome forever not responding...lots of delays...its just not worth a dollar!!!
Great value for money
This is a great little table for my 10 year old. It is good value for money and has an easy to use layout.
We have had no issues with it since we bought it two months ago.
It is basic but that is all we needed.
It holds the battery well and doesn't take long to charge.
Strange lay out...
This may simply be due to the fact I enjoy the apple lay out more favorably however, I found the layout of this tablet especially strange and unintuitive. I use tablets for school thus am open for change if they host superior attributes for school related tasks. If you're looking to try something new maybe give this a go!
I purchased ProTab tablets for my kids for Christmas, they were only able to use them for a few days at a time without having to ring ProTab because they just stopped charging, have replaced my kids several times, still trying to get refund. Also kept stopping and starting randomly, battery doesn't last very long and touch screen is not that great.
Thought for the price it would be average - instead, it was terrible
We had lots of issues with this tablet. We bought it simply for our small child to play with and only had a few educational apps on there. It froze constantly and had to be restarted every ten minutes to be able to even use it. I contacted customer service for some advice, and although they were lovely, their return policy was lengthy and drawn out (e.g. sending it away for testing and maintenance). For the price we paid, I approached Target directly who were more than happy to return it and said they've had a number of them returned. You might think you're getting a good deal because of the price but unfortunately, it is a case of getting what you pay for.
Ok for very simple task
I have had this for about a month and I would not recommend this to people who want a proper tablet for family use or general use. It’s a bit bigger than the iPad Air 2 and iPad Pro 9.7 that I have also. And the wifi chip on this is horrible. I would recommend this for simple tasks like note taking or very light internet browsing
I purchased the protab 10.1 for my sons birthday, went through set up process he watched a bit of utube put it on charge over night come to use it the next morning and there's a crack straight down the screen, it still turns on but can't access unlock screen. We have 3 Apple iPads in the household and have had them for years without a problem and yes I know the iPads have been dropped and never broken once. Protabs are crap quality, your better off paying the extra for good quality. The protab probably got 3 hours use before it was no good.
Not my cup of tea
I bought this to play games and watch Netflix. As it turns out, it's no good for games. Doesn't supper Netflix, FOXTEL, Fetch or catch up TV. I returned it and got my money back. Even the sales guy said he wouldn't recommend it. Unsure what this would be good for.
I bought this in Target today as it was out on special. Its the first tablet I have owned and its does what its surposed too. Going back to my grand daughter one for Christmas. Its a good model for beginers and kids as its sturdy enough and definatly a good price at target
Ok for a toddler
I bought this for my toddler simply to load with games and if it gets broken it wasn't expensive. The battery doesn't last long but its ok for the money. You get what you pay for. Its pretty durable so wont necessarily break if dropped. Speed isnt too bad, would be better if they also sold a case but i got one off ebay reasonably cheap.
Affordable tablet for the accident prone!
If you have children who love to watch you tube videos and app games this is a suitable device. I wouldn't reccommend trying to use this for all of your computing needs, but on the whole it's not a bad tablet for the young ones. The price is great for parents conscious of technology breakage as it is cheap to replace if needed.
