Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 review

17 December 2013
  • Conclusion: While there are many things to like about the Panasonic Toughbook FZ-G1, the price is impossible to ignore. Shopping around can reduce the price from the MSRP of $2,399 to about $2,200, but that’s still enough to buy two Surface Pros or Samsung Smart PCs. And then there are the options; it’s possible to exceed three grand without checking every box on the Toughbook’s menu.
  • Pros: Durable construction, Useful buttons for system functions, User serviceable and upgradable, Strong performance for a tablet
  • Cons: Extremely expensive, Heavy and thick, Below-average battery life, Loud system fan

Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1

PC Magazine
1 November 2013
  • Conclusion: The Panasonic ToughPad FZ-G1 rugged Windows tablet is tough enough to survive the worst, but runs with the best tablet PCs on the market.
  • Pros: Solid performance, thanks to an Intel Core i5-3437U processor. Super rugged design survives all sorts of abuse, but is still light and slim. Great display combines high-resolution, adjustable brightness, and capacitive touch. Wacom digitizer. Modular options galore.
  • Cons: Only one USB port (two with optional USB module). Small-ish 128GB drive.

Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
5 August 2013
  • Summary: At just 2.2 pounds, the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 is the thinnest and lightest fully rugged 10-inch Windows 8 tablet, but manages to pack in a sunlight-readable 1920 x 1200 touch-screen display and strong battery life. Better yet, it does so for a reasonable $2,399. Overall, this tablet is ideal for those who need a device for harsh environments, but don't want to make any compromises.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Fully rugged design, Very bright display, Speedy performance
  • Cons: No fingerprint reader option, Bottom can get hot

Good Gear Guide.au
25 September 2013
  • Summary: Panasonic's Toughpad FZ-G1 is an expensive 10.1in rugged tablet, but it's impressive. It runs fast, it has a good array of features and options, and it has a removable battery and relatively good field serviceability. All this in addition to being dustproof, water resistant, and capable of surviving 1.2m drops.
  • Pros: Good performance, High-res screen, Field serviceable
  • Cons: Fan can get quite loud, Screen looks a little grainy, Could use a built-in handle

Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 with Becrypt DISK Protect CPA review

6 September 2013
  • Summary: The Toughpad lives up to its claim of offering business users a close to unbreakable Windows 8 tablet, which, thanks to the inclusion of Becrypt software, is also as secure as it can be. However costing a hefty £2,000 and featuring average battery life and disappointing screen, it is likley to appeal only to vertical markets.
  • Pros: Extremely rugged, robust Becrypt security, decent performance
  • Cons: Only average battery life, disappointing screen lacks vibrancy, bulky
