Some time ago I promised to update you on any great deals that we come across while surfing the web. Today I am sharing a tablet deal that I saw at eBay UK. The deal is for 7-inch Allwinner A20 Cortex A7 tablet which is offered for just £48 which looks like a very low price but lets take a look at the specifications of the tablet at see if it is worth the money:

You can find this tablet at the Daily deals section where plenty of other tablet deals are available.

I would also recommend you to take a look at the Best cheap Android tablets 2013 selection. Another tablet that is very similar in specs is the Freelander PD10 7-inch Android tablet.

Excelvan ET701 7-inch Dual SIM Android 4.1 Jelly Bean tablet with GPS, 3G, TV Bluetooth and WiFi

Excelvan ET701 review
Excelvan ET701 is another cheap tablet that we are going to discuss in our Test and Review blog. This 7-inch tablet or as some may call it phablet is a very strange mix of cheap hardware and very good connectivity options which even include a TV reception and built in TV antenna. In this review we will take a look at the main features and specifications of the ET701 and explain why you should/shouldn't buy this tablet.

Samsung SM-P605 Galaxy Note 10.1 released (2014 Edition) - price and specs

Samsung started deliveries of the 10-inch Samsung Galaxy Note SM-P605 (2014 Edition)

Recently Samsung released their latest top of the line 10.1-inch tablet Galaxy Note SM-P605 2014 Edition and the deliveries for many locations around the globe have already started. 

Features and specs

What is impressive about this new tablet is the hardware that is under the hood. The SM-P605 has some hardware specs that you would usually expect from a powerful desktop but not from a stylish portable device - 2.30GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with Adreno 330 GPU, 3GB of RAM, 16-64 GB of storage capacity and great connectivity options like Bluetooth v4.0 с A2DP, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and GPS receiver. Of course 4G LTE is also available here (GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSDPA, HSUPA, HSPA+ support).

Samsung SM-P605 Galaxy Note 10.1 looks like any other 10-inch Samsung tablet, made of high-quality durable plastic with very good grip and leaves the impression of a solid made product. 
The display of the SM-P605 Galaxy Note is another impressive feature of this tablet. The Super clear LCD capacitive multi-touch display has resolution of 2560 x 1600 which is class-leading.
Another thing that leaves a very good impression is the quality 8-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash on the back of the tablet. You also get another 2-megapixel front facing camera.

Samsung SM-P605 Galaxy Note 10.1 has very strong battery with 8220 mAh capacity and very good battery life of around 10 hours of active use and very long stand-by time.

The operating system used in this tablet is Android 4.3 Jelly Bean which does a great job on powerful mobile devices and is still preferred over Windows 8.

Samsung SM-P605 Galaxy Note 10.1 measures 243.1 x 171.4 x 7.9 mm and weighs around  550 grams.

Price

The price that was announced earlier this year was around $650 for North American customers and around 550 Euros in Europe. In UK this tablet is going to be released for around £450-500 and the sales are expected to start at the end of this month. Samsung SM-P605 will be offered in two color choices - white or black.

Prestigio MultiPad 8.0 Pro Duo 8-inch Android tablet full specs and video review

Full specifications and video review of the 8-inch Android tablet Prestigio MultiPad 8.0 Pro Duo

Prestigio MultiPad 8.0 Pro Duo review
Prestigio MultiPad 8.0 Pro Duo 8-inch Android tablet

Prestigio MultiPad 8.0 Pro Duo is an affordable dual-core Android tablet with 8-inch capacitive screen and some good features and specs for a tablet from this price segment.
For me it is quite strange how from an average computer accessories brand Prestigio managed to become one of the biggest tablet manufacturers. Prestigio tablets are usually quite cheap but they also offer some high-end models competing with the very latest models of the top manufacturers.
Prestigio MultiPad 8.0 Pro Duo sits somewhere in the middle, it is neither cheap nor expensive. Considering the 1.50GHz dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor and 1GB of RAM the price of just under $200 seems quite reasonable. 
What we noticed in recent months is the fact that tablet manufacturers are producing more and more of their top models to be smaller than 10-inch. It seems that the downsizing trend didn't only affect car engines but tablet sizes as well (yeah, this information is quite irrelevant but still I felt like I needed to share it...).
So now lets review some of the main components of this 8-inch tablet.

Display
The 8-inch capacitive multi-touch screen of the MultiPad 8.0 Pro Duo has resolution of 1024x768 which again sits somewhere in the middle of this segment, it isn't very low (same as the iPad mini) but definitely far from the latest Asus Google Nexus tablets which has amazing IPS screens with great pixel density.

Memory and storage space
Prestigio MultiPad 8.0 Pro Duo has 1024MB of RAM and 8GB of storage space. You can add more data with additional microSD card - this tablet supports memory cards of up to 32GB. 

Connections
 This 8-inch Android tablet has fast 802.11b/g/n WiFi connection for easy and fast access to the Internet but unfortunately the wireless capabilities of this tablet end here - no 3G connection (needs external dongle), GPS or Bluetooth are present in this tablet. What we have here in addition to the WiFi connectivity are the MicroUSB and miniHDMI ports.

Battery
Prestigio MultiPad 8.0 Pro Duo has a 4700 mAh Lithium Polymer battery which is good enough for 120 hours of stand-by time and around 5-6 hours of active usage. 

Other
As additional features the 8-inch  MultiPad 8.0 Pro Duo offers 0.3MP front-facing camera and a case which is specially made for this model. 

OS
Prestigio MultiPad 8.0 Pro Duo comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system but there is option for upgrade to better performing Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Tablet dimensions
Prestigio MultiPad 8.0 Pro Duo measures 203 x 153 x 11 mm and weighs around 490 g.

Sony KDL-32R421 32-inch HD LED TV

Price and specifications of the cheap 32-inch LED TV Sony KDL-32R421

Sony KDL-32R421 review
Sony KDL-32R421 32-inch HD LED TV

Sony KDL-32R421 is one of the cheapest 32-inch LED TVs from Sony's model line and it is mostly going to be offered in countries of Western Europe and Asia. The key features of this affordable TV are the very good design and build quality, the nice picture and good connectivity options. All these make the KDL-32R421 one of the best purchases in the segment. 

What makes the difference between the Sony KDL-32R421 and the other competitors in this class is the fact that this TV doesn't look like it is something cheap and on the bottom of the company's model line. It looks like it is build to last and to make good impressions even before it is turned on. The quality hard plastics, thin panel, small frame and solid metal stand are something quite rare in this price segment but the KDL-32R421 offers them as standard. 

Another big advantage of the KDL-32R421 is the good picture quality it offers. With maximum resolution of 1366 x 768 it doesn't have Full HD support but for most users this HD resolution is more than enough.  The 100Hz Motionflow on the other hand takes care of the smooth transitioning of dynamic video content like action movie scenes and sports.

The sound provided from the Sony KDL-32R421 is also on a very good level. The two 8W stereo speakers are pretty loud and support Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Pulse. These are definitely some of the better speakers in this price segment.

Plenty of connection options are available in the Sony KDL-32R421: RF in, 2 HDMI, HDMI PC In, SCART in (without Smartlink), USB, Composite video in (Hybrid w / Component), PCMCIA in, Analog audio in, Optical Digital Out, Audio out, Headphone, Video Out (SCART) are all present in this 32-inch LED TV.
  
The price is the key selling point for the Sony KDL-32R421. You would normally expect such good piece of technology to be more expensive than its direct competitors. But it isn't and that is the main reason why the KDL-32R421 is out of stock in most stores. Even without Full HD, 3D or Smart TV functions this TV managed to become a real best seller and that is quite an achievement for 32-inch HD LED Sony TV priced under 300 Euros.

GoClever TAB TERRA 90 review
GoClever TAB TERRA 90 9-inch cheap Android tablet

GoClever TAB TERRA 90 is a cheap 9-inch Google Android tablet with average specifications and low price tag. 
When you take a closer look at the tablet and all of its performance you will probably notice there is nothing impressive about this tablet - neither its hardware nor its looks are class leading so it seems like its biggest advantage is the low price.
