Noza Tec 10.1" Quad Core Tablet Review

Noza Tec 10.1 Quad CoreCheap Tablets that are actually worth reviewing are becoming more common. Overall product quality is improving and prices are continuing to fall. That's a great combination for anyone who's in the market for a cheap new Tablet. More good news is that you don't have to settle for a 7" model that's only slightly bigger than your Smartphone. It's the 10 Inch models, along with some of the smaller versions of various brands, which are part of the price drop. Some of the 10" are just as affordable as a seven Inch model with the same specification.

So what can be said about the Noza Tec 10.1" Tablet?. Well, as far as specifications go it's quite "Run of the mill" really. The Noza Tec has an almost identical specification to a lot of the other budget priced Tablets currently out there for sale.

Quad Core Processor (4 x 1.3GHz cores), Android 4.4 Kitkat Operating System, Dual Camera's (always poor on budget models), 1GB RAM, Bluetooth, WiFi, SD card slot, Micro USB port(s) and a 3.5mm headphone jack. However, when it comes to the lower priced models, and some of the high-end ones too, stability can be an issue. Thankfully, this one is widely reported as being stable, which is most probably due to the 4.4 Kit Kat being one of the more well-behaved Operating Systems.

The 32GB storage in the Noza Tec Ten Inch is broken up into two parts. You have a 16GB of built into the device itself, and then another 16GB on a TF card that's included in the price. It has the Allwinner A33 Processor which is common for the lower priced Tablets. But its a decent Processor that performs adequately in most areas. Required Language setting can be changed to almost anything you desire. German, Italian, Polish, French, Spanish. You get the idea. The list is long.

A good amount of accessories are included. Comes complete with mains charger, USB and OTG cables, user manual, stylus pen and protective sleeve. There are two packages to choose from. Both are basically the same, with the only difference being one is slightly more expensive (Not by much) and comes with an additional case / keyboard combination. That one is low on stock right now.

The NozaTec 10.1" is not going to break any records for screen quality, speed or touch screen responsiveness. But it is stable, affordable, and looks more expensive than what it really costs to buy. It performs the basics well.

The usual tasks that a lot of people do digitally these days like browsing the Internet for information, shopping and connecting with friends, Reading (Kindle), watching movies and YouTube clips, playing simple games and skyping etc, won't be a problem. Reviews are really good. A superb deal for the price. Please Note: This model does not have a HDMI slot.

UC Logic Artisul D13 Graphics Tablet

What is the best cheap alternative to the Wacom Cintiq 13HD? This is a question that gets asked a lot. And yes, there are some decent alternatives out there that are cheaper to buy. However, the savings that you do make from buying a cheaper model do come at a cost. And in most cases you will have to sacrifice on features, screen quality, and even overall build quality. Thankfully, there are exceptions. The good news is, you've found one. The Artisul D13 is a dark horse in the world of graphics tablets. It roams quietly under the radar when it comes to the popular, more mainstream models. But, if there ever was a model that was cheaper to buy than the Wacom Cintiq 13HD but could match, and even beat it in certain areas, it is definitely the Artisul D13.

UC Logic Artisul D13 Graphics Tablet
The excellent 13.3 Inch UC Logic Artisul D13

The build quality is superb. It's slim but sturdy, and the screen quality, @1080P (IPS) is excellent! It can be powered by the USB and HDMI cables alone. The D13 does not need to be plugged into the mains. This is an amazing feature that makes it much more portable, like a graphics tablet should be, and much easier to work with on the move. Of course, you will still need a laptop to use this device when travelling or using it where a mains plug is unavailable. It needs something to plug into after all.

Please note: It does also work just fine with a normal desktop PC too, if you were getting worried for a second. And while it doesn't need to be plugged in via AC adapter to work, UC Logic have made sure it still comes with a plug-in adapter included.

Check out the very informative video review below of this model from Tommy Oliver over at Rebel Pixels, where he gives us a run through of the good points and a few areas where he feels improvements could be made to the Artisul D13. It would be great if the manufacturers could consider including them on a future upgrade.

One thing worth bearing in mind though is the D13 is still quite expensive. There is not really that much difference in price between this and the See here for confirmation.What's funny, or a bit disappointing to be honest, is that reviews on Amazon, and a few of the other popular online outlets are none existent! It looks like this model isn't as popular as it should be here in the UK. You don't know what you're missing out on! Maybe its the price, or perhaps the marketing. I don't know. But this really is one worth taking the risk on. Want something much cheaper but still good for the price? Take a look at the Ugee 1910B.
